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.

Tom tom one i turned it on and it went off by itself...I turned it on again and it went off again....I am getting a green light on the charger and a green light at the bottom of the tom tom.....so I would...


Hello :

I recommend you to replace the battery . The battery could be dead [ can't be recharged anymore ] even if it shows that it's recharging .
If replacing the battery didn't solve the problem , then i would recommend you to replace the your device with new one , since you still have the guarantee .

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

Green Light / Dead Tomtom - Please help with component id


that diode is a reverse polarity protection diode. An 1N414 will do ( available for very very little from almost ALL electronic component suppliers.) If there is NOTHING ELSE WRONG then the tomtom will still work without this diode. Its not needed in normal operation anyway. All it does is cause the fuse to blow in the cigarette lighter plug if the polarity is accidently reversed. Therefore , with a correct supply , it does nothing !

Tomtom one not poweringup


Lofty same just happened to me, following great deal of searching, my conclusion is that over voltage has fried regulator chip in tomtom, the reason you have green light is because at different part of power board. Approx repair cost if damage is not too bad (50% cannot be repaired) is £70.

TOMTOM will have a look for nothing, and give you a quote, if don;t want to proceed they will send it back for free also.

Good luck.

Battery replacement for TomTom 710


I have found a trick for those bad battery ,but you lose your waranty
you need to open your tomtom , behind the screen you wil find the battery(for the Go 710 it is an 3.7 V ,2400mAh,samsung ICR18650-24)
you find 3 wires : red, black,yellow cut them of at the half of the wire size
, then cut off your car loader wire (tomtom)(5v), you will see again 3 wires inside :red,black,white
connect the red with red, black with black, white with yellow
(the best thing is to make a little hole in the cover to pass the wire, so it will be beter for closing the all thing)
I did it and it works pretty fine ,I had save 30 dollars ;) :D
I did in approximatly 30 min
remember you will have no battery any more and no waranty of tomtom!
It only whorks then with your car loader tomtom

TOMTOM GO 710


Could be a loose contact at the connection between the wire and at the gps unit.

Think the green light must be on at the charger port and also on the gps unit.

This green light can be found near the power button on the gps unit.

Charging but nothing on screen


A good place to start is a reset. -Make sure the battery is charged completely (charge for two hours to be sure) -remove the SD card, if you use one -hold down the reset button with a pen for at least 15 seconds -release the reset button and hold down the on/off button for at least 5 seconds. -replace the SD card If that doesnt work: Make sure you have the latest software for the device by using TomTom Home. Sometimes just updating the software will kick it into gear, so to speak. And lastly, if it is just dead, contact TomTom customer care and they will repair or replace it for you. Before you call them make sure you have a TomTom account. To register:https://www.tomtom.com/myTomTom/myProfile/ Hope this helps!
