Question about GPS

1 Answer

I connected a different charging lead to my TomTomOne, not realising it had a higher power output. My TomTom died instantly. The green light on top of the unit comes on but nothing else. Any help greatly appreciated. From Rob.

    I did the same thing (twice) first time TomTom fixed it very quickly and for free. Now they say it is out of warranty and I can't even pay to have it fixed. I think this is very common and it is just some circuit that is blown. There must be a way to replace that part.

If you fed the unit with a charger with much to high voltage, you might have "fried" it. If so, not much to do than repair/throw in the bin...

Tomtomone stuck with frozen screen and wont switch off can switch off using the reset button but when switched back it sticks on the tomtomone screen


Your TomTom home software is corrupted:

1) Try a 'hard reset': while the power is on, stick a small (tooth/match) stick through the hole under your unit base and opposite to were the USB connector go, for a few seconds, remove the pressure on the stick will cause a complete system reboot if possible.

2) Check the health of your Tomtom One flash drive: connect to the computer, use Windows Explorer -> Properties -> Tools > Error-checking to scan and repair any problem.

3) Restore software: using TomTom Home, restore from a previous backup followed by a device update while connected online.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go and good luck!

Tomtom go 910 power connecter


Yes Chris it can be repaired. I do it all the time. The culprit is usually the negative pin. The negative pin is the gold pin on the far right hand side. With the unit upside down (you can see the contact pins on the board) and the lcd faceing you the negative pin will be on your far right hand side just below the reset hole. Doing it and telling you how to do it are two different matters.

TomTom will not charge with car charger


Mine does the same, the light comes on on the charger, but not on the TomTom unit itself. There is clearly a loose connection in the cable somewhere as you can twist the flex and make it work, although this is not very reliable.

I just use a USB charger from an old phone instead.

What do you use to charge the tom tom 910 in the house


In the box you have a 'desktop' mount. Looks like the windscreen mount without the ******.
Also you will have got a mains power lead.
Plug the lead into the 'desktop mount' (Left hand side) of the stick up bit.
Plug in and put your 910 onto the mount. It will 'Click' into place
The green light will shine to show it's charging.

To release the unit from the mount PRESS in the button in the middle of the screen top rim and lift off.

Remember to turn of the power at the socket to stop wasting electricity

The usb part of the desktop mount goes into your pc so you can connect to TomTom home or just plain old 'back it up'
It is ok to have power switched on or off when connect to the pc, there is no need to unplug the jackplug.

Hope this helps

CANNOT RECHARGE TOMTOM


If you have the green light lit on top of the tomtom but it won't switch on , then you have a condition commonly known as "the Green Light Syndrome". Most likely cause is blown components inside the tomtom that regulate voltage. The reason they blow is usually due to user connecting incorrect charger ( such as a 12v one for a phone ) or sometimes the tomtom charger goes faulty and instead of ouputting 5 voltas it outputs 12 volts and damages the tomtom inside. the parts are not easily repalced and require a specialist repair centre that has good experience of repairing tomtoms. You cannot repair it yourself using a normal soldering iron. Good luck.
