You have blown one or two charging chips inside the tomtom through a faulty charging cable, it will need to be professionally repaired as the chips are very,very tiny and are hard to solder

Tom tom will not switch on when i try to charge it the led light does not come on i have hardly used my tom tom


What is your charging method? In car or house hold plug? Suggest that charger is not working (Green) if light on Tom Tom (at bottom near charger lead) is not lighting. Check your charger and see if you have an indicator light on it showing it is on. If yes, plug in Tom, then press and hold the "on" button for 15 seconds constinuously. Tom Tom should reboot.

My tomtom won"t turn on


If you have a tom tom from the GO models
they hace a reset button you can press with a pin were the mount fits.
When you plug in the charger the green light should come on to say it is chargeing.
Try the car adapter to charge the tom tom

Tomtom go 510 do disply


Same here and with aftermarket mount. The light comes on but its not really charging. I was acutally able to find a sweet spot basically by pushing it down and to the right slightly (into the base) and held it in place with left hand and put the unit in the upper left part of the windshield, elbo in the window frame and move the unit around until the low batter warning dissappears, then don't move. Theres a specific screen that will tell if its charging or not if you tap the lower right part of the screen after booting up if you can get that far. I forget what it was, I think displays speed and miles to go. (But definatley hold the whole unit down and to the right and hold it for a while so it can charge up a little.) Then try turning on and you should have enough power to tinker with it. I would up putting the tom tom in the upper part of the windshield, then stuffing balled up napkins between the roof and the unit to keep pushing it down.

I also plugged it in the the original computer hook up base to see if the problem was on the winshield one or the tom tom itself. Both chargers do it so I am assuming that its the tom tom itself. I still CANNOT figure out why the charge light could be on and still not charging.
I am going FRD and taking it apart. (Fix Or Destroy) Since they are getting pretty cheap, nothing to loose I guess.
Thanks back to all the posters on this site!!

My tom tom 710 is dead the green light is on but nothing on it!


Change the motherboard, green light on and nothing happening is quite common, you can find motherboards on ebay for £22 +p&p.

Its quite easy to do and worth while as the 710 and 910 are still very good units.
