When you plug in the normal cigarette liter into the socket does it pop up hot? if so I suggest trying to replace the power cord to the tom tom. your car only puts out 13.8 volts. any more than that the fuses would blow.

The powere lite does not come on

The cold weather will have drained the battery to absolute zero.
When ALL tomtoms are turned off they go in standby and do not actually turn off. The battery will have dropped below what is called 'critical voltage'. Put it on a MAINS charger for 12 hours. THEN RESET the switch underneath for 30 seconds and power up. If that fails the battery needs to be replaced.

My tom tom will not turn on

Possibly a voltage overload. You will be able to smell the buring at the USB socket power point. Needs to be sent in to the workshop for repairs and various chips and diodes need to be replaced

Burning smell came out of the Tom Tom 910. Now does not boot up on mains or car cigar lighter socket

The power supply or voltage transformer or possibly capacitor is burnt out. You will have to visually inspect the main control board for burn marks and swelled up capacitors. You can use an ohmmeter to test them as well.

If you backed up your tom tom then restore it from that backup. Two maps should not stop you from getting to the tom tom home web but may stop the home application working properly.

If you have an SD card in remove it and try again if all is good then try put the sd card in a reader rather than the tom tom and make the required deletions from there. Or if you DO have a backup then format the card properly and then restore to it whilst it is in the reader. Then put it back in the tom-tom and you should then be back to where you need

Most likey its not worth fixing. Look at it like this. While it may have only been 6 volts versus 5. One volt in a 5 volt system is a 20 percent increase.
If you took something that ran on 120 volts and plugged it into a 144 volt source you can figure the damage that would do.

If the unit is still under warranty, send it back to Tomtom. Even if the unit is no longer under warranty, complain to Tomtom. There is a problem with the CLA (cigarette lighter adapter). It can cause internal damages to your Tomtom. What happens is that there are three wires in the CLA along with a voltage stepdown circuit board. The wire are +, -, and a signal wire. If the signal wire get disconnect the voltage could spike up to 12vdc. The unit is designed for only 5vdc.

If the unit is out of warranty then try the following website for repairs. They can fix the two chips which usually blows.
