If you are using the car cigarette lighter adapter, the fuse could have blown. To check fuse Unscrew the silver tip end of plug CAREFULLY its spring loaded and check fuse....if you used the USB connector to charge unit it must be charged for a few hours to fully charge.

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.

My gps battery says low battery and shuts off when I set it down after putting in travel info. What to do ?


Check the power on your 12v car cord. The internal batteries are low and are not being charged by your vehicle system. The fuse may be burned out in the 12v car plug.

When i plug my rca mp3 4208RD-B into the computer port to charge it tells me the battery is full. when i disconnect it and try to turn it on, it says"!low battery shutting down!" how do i successfully...


The battery is probably not the issue. Sounds more like there is an issue internally with the firmware. I suggest reinstalling the firmware, which can be downloaded here:

Be sure to back up any important media on your device before performing the reinstall of the firmware.

My compaq presario R4000 just stopped working and shut down - no warning - nothing!


bad battery. best way to kill a battery is to always have it charging and never using it or discharging it.


take the battery out and use it just with power cord, see if it shuts down again. or try to use it with JUST the battery if battery is bad the PC will not turn on or stay on
