Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver

3 Answers

Require value of D5

Can somebody please tell me what type of diode D5 is? It's adjacent to the USB socket on the other side of the pcb.

If anyone has a component list and/or schematic I'd love that too. Please advise & I'll supply email address.

Thanks,

****

    D5 blew here, released the 'magic smoke' at an arbitary time

    slightly worrying if this is a regular occurance, darned thing was a month out of warranty

    i've a feeling that, being where it is, it's a reverse polarity protection diode, shouldn't really have to worry about its value,

    will try shorting it once i find my soldering iron

    Thanks support551.



    I had a feeling it was for reverse polarity protection. Either that or a 5V Zener. Thanks for the info. Greatly appreciated.

    Does anyone know if the Rectifier Diode D5 on the TomTom XL is the same one used on the TomTom One unit?

    Thanks

    I have the same problem and I will get a new diode tomorrow.
    BUT which way do I mount the new diode?
    The old one is toast so I can not see any markings.
    Thanks!

TomTom One uses a Linear Technologies chip LTC3455 as a USB/charger power controller. See http://cds.linear.com/docs/Datasheet/3455fc.pdf. This chip is susceptible to high transient voltages that result from resonances created by parasitic inductances and capacitances of the USB/in-car charger cable . Good designs using this chip suggest that a 1 ohm resistance be put in the path of the cable to reduce the Q of the resonance and hence transient voltages. A 6V Zener diode D5 also serves to protect the chip from these transients.
If the Zener diode is blown it is most likely the the LTC3455 chip is gone as well. You can replace the chip which costs £5.00 (located in the shielded portion of the PCB). The recommended Zener Diodes for this chip are either the EDZ5.6B or EDZ6.2B manufactured by ROHM (http://www.rohm.com/products/databook/di/pdf/edz5.6b.pdf or http://www.rohm.com/products/databook/di/pdf/edz6.2b.pdf). These can be used to replace D5. The STMicroeletronics SM2T6V8A can also be used to replace D5 (http://www.st.com/stonline/products/literature/ds/8694/sm2t.pdf). All the Zeners cost a modest £0.22. I hope this is helpful.

I have noticed that the D5 diode has burned out on many a Tomtom one xl. Tomtom knows this, that is why warranty is for a year and why they have no out-of-warranty repair. I sent the info to Consumer Reports.

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

Unit wont turn on


Check the power connector on the unit, over time the solder joints work loose and then the unit cant get power and you will just get a black screen. You may need to remove the PCB and look at the back inside bit of the USB socket. Hope this helps

the problem is that the controlling diode that checks LUX value is damaged (small clear window of minute proportion that adjusts screen brightness)

Not charging.


I removed the plate cover on the aerial, then slid the hinge pin to the right to release the aerial holder then removed the two fixing screws from the top of the unit that had been obscured by the aerial receiver. I then removed the PCB fixing screw to access the PCB & re-soldered the mini-USB plug to the outside rail.I did get side tracked after that so will re-assemble today. Wonderring which is the best method of aligning tapes from touch screen to PCB as you would be aware there is not much length.

Tomtom one xl usb socket broken off main pcb


I have gone around this problem by removing the internal battery, and soldering a female power connector to it.I now it on 3 aa batteries, alkaline cells givbe me an autonomy of about an hour, maybe duracells will give a bit more duration.

When i have time ,I will work on splicing the wires on the cigar plug adaptor and use that as a permanent power source. The wires for the Lipo cell are Red positive, solder this to the yellow wire( probably a battery gauge wire) and black ground.

Hope this helps

Very poor workmanship from TOMTOM

Charging socket has come out


DOnt know where you can get it fixed but I "hard wired" it so it has now become a GPS only.

What a stupid plug they came up with (so much for supporting Kiwi made)
The amount of stress that is placed on the plug while its pllugged in and your driving,something has to give sooner or later.

Charge Socket


Bought a faulty F20 off EBAY with a broken USB socket.

It seems like a common failure mode.

The one I had had sheared directly of the internal board and their was no PCB track left for re soldering.

I eventually managed to repair the unit by buying a new socket and attaching fine wires which were hard wired to other parts of the PCB then using epoxy glue to refasten the socket. I would consider it a difficult and advanced repair. (Its like micro PCB surgery)

Opening the case is relatively easy. Remove the screws and then use something like a blunt table knife to gently slide between the two case halves until they part bit by bit.

Hope this is of some help.
