My tomtom charges the green light comes on I press the on button but nothing happens


I have managed to fix my TomTom one.

The problem was two fold. First the diode D8 was blown and also the power supply chip was blown.

It is a tricky job, using surface mounted components so should not be attempted by a novice but I managed it.

I have a full set of photos etc if anyone cares to try it. I figured - NOTHING to loose!! so what the heck and just went for it. Taking it apart was fun! The surface mounted IC was easy to obtain and the total cost was about £10 plus 4 hours panic labour. If anyone wants the info just let me know and I will send the photos - but no promises - it worked for me.
I figured out this ongoing problem. I purchased my TomTom One second edition 1/20/07 for $395. I was 30 days past my warranty and had the problem of unit not turning on. Green light came on when charged.

I opened my unit up and found the sw2 micro switch broken. If you press too hard on the on/off button, this will eventually happen.

I couldn't find a replacement switch so I wired my own switch and it works now.

Tomtom Go 710 continually trying to shut down,still plugged in to car adapter or mains power, but comes up with 10 second warning continually, shutting down.


I have had the same problem. unfortunately I have been told that it is the cradle connections to the main unit. they are at fault due to wear and tear and causes the shutdown. Try wiggling the cradle when connected, if there is some slack play then you may also have the same problem.... by the way, Tom Tom are not interested unless within warranty and they dont sell replacement cradles!

Tomtom Rider GPS won't turn on


My Rider 1 is showing the same sympton. Was working fine now I can't get past the initial "Tomtom" screen.

Does it power up when connected to the mains charger?- No, need to prod reset and then turn on manually.
Does it switch on when connected to the bike cradle? - No, only sign of life if by manually turning on but only get as far as the Tomtom screen, not the main menu.

Any ideas welcome

Tom tom won't turn off


if it does not proceed when the icon is selected, presume data corruption or in fact no data.
TomTom is renouned for this type of problem.
try rteinstalling the map data from the source.

try a reset first ( small pinhole on rear) put open paperclip end in and gently push the button inside) if this still fails then data installation is the go

TOMTOM 910 will not turn on after charging


According to Kevin A who says, and thanks by the way (There is a reset button on the back at the top of the unit. It should be on the right side as you turn the unit around. Insert a paperclip or pin into this hole, and the unit should reset) at it works 100% because I tried this morning after being quoted £55 to have my GO910 fixed and now it works after the price of a paper clip.
