    To take out the battery, find mini TORX screwdriver from your local electronics store and open the unit up, it is fairly logical how to replace it once you open the unit. Be careful of the flexible cables not to damage them.



    You can buy replacement battery which is already pre wired for your particular model.

    Hi again,



    You can see explanation about disassembling the same model tomtom in this link.



    After removing the battery you can wait a while then replace back to test to power on. If it doesn't work you can find a replacement battery to test.



    Hope this helps.

Hi,
Anything done in excess is always bad. Overcharging has make your gadget stop functioning. The overcharging has resulted in malfunctioning of the IC or battery.. First change the battery and verify that the Battery and see the result... If after changing battery also you face the problem then there is a hardware failure and you have to get it serviced... Sometimes restoring gadget to factory settings may help.
Hope this has helped you,,, Thanks...

    TomTom devices have a green LED on the front, top or bottom of the device that is lit when the device is connected to a power source and actively charging. If this light is lit on your TomTom, then you know the device is charging.




    The battery in your TomTom cannot be overcharged. The battery will cease power transfer on it's own, when charged to capacity.
    Recommend that you first attempt to charge your device for a minimum of 2 hours and then attempt to Reset your Device
    If you have a problem with the battery, please contact TomTom customer support.
    Thanks for Contacting FIxYa

Why does my tom tom keep going the shut down page every 10 seconds I have pressed reset but makes no difference I ride bmw r1200rt


One possible cause is that your battery is low or the battery can no longer hold a (good) charge. In this case, the TomTom is shutting down because there's not enough battery to keep it running, even though it is plugged into a power source.

To determine if the battery is the cause, try to charge the TomTom battery .... using a (USB) connection to your computer, or a direct power source (i.e. while the TomTom is not being used). Let it charge for a few hours until the batter charge indicator shows that it is fully charged (or just leave it charging overnight).
Then, unplug the TomTom from the "charger" and power it up. If the TomTom (battery) doesn't hold a (good) charge, the device will shut down within a few minutes, e.g. 10 mins or much less.
When you (then) plug the device into a power source, and it doesn't stay on (i.e. it keeps shutting down after 10 seconds), you can safely conclude that the battery is the cause of your problem.

TomTomApr 15, 2013 - If you only charge your TomTom while it is in use, it may not charge to capacity. To fully charge your TomTom, it is best to charge the device indoors. Most newer TomTom products can be charged directly through USB, simply by connecting the USB cable or dock to your computer.

Hallo! Try this: press reset +poiwer on for 20 secs, release reset but keep pressing power 20 secs, it should power the light on, very fast to connect to computer in this time, because it stais on 10 secs, open it like a map, backup ALL data in a new map, format the device, connect to TomTom Home, make the upgrades, copy the maps Maps and Voices back to your GPS.

I turn it on, logo comes on, and it turns off. I've tried holding the on button 8 sec, no luck.


With the limited information provided, a simple first step is to make sure the internal battery is either fully charged or is in a condition to accept a charge. When the internal battery's charge is allowed to below a certain level, it will no longer be capable of accepting a charge via the car charger.

The battery can be conditioned to accept a charge easily, however. This is done by connecting the GPS to the computer via USB port, NOT the car charger. Some Garmin GPS units come with a 120 volt charger that connects to the USB port of the GPS - this method is also an acceptable charge / condition method. Leave the GPS connected for 8 hours or longer (over night) and try to power up again.

I hope this helps!

Tom tom xl does not turn on. been on charge all night and using car charger still makes no difference


try the usb cable to your. this is the recommended method to charge a tomtom when it wont power on. for reasons unexplained by tomtom they do not recommend the car or house charges.

plug it in via the usb cable to your computer for a few hours(make sure the green light is on and nice and bright) then press and hold the power button(this could take up to 20 seconds)

I have not used my tomtom for a few months , an when attempting to use it today , it was dead . nothing at all help tomtom xl roseden@telus.net


connect it to a power supply and leave it for a few hours A battery that is totally depleted will take some time to recover and not show that it is even being charged as power is too low to light the LED.

It will require a full charge of about 10 hours to get it fully back into service. But the LED will ( or should turn on) after about 1-2 hrs depending on the condition of the battery. If after the charge the battery does not hold a charge lasting on average about 2 hrs , then change the battery.
