OK I had the same problem, replaced the battery but it still did the same thing, i.e. light came on as if charging but no power to device. Turned out in the end it was a dry joint, to fix remove the case and use a hair-dryer on hot for a couple of minutes on the area on the pcb where the dock connectors join the pcb.

How do I start my tomtom 2405. It has been sitting for 1 year. Charged overnight. The start button is green

Have you tried to RESET it ? .... either, hold down the power ON/OFF button for a long while ... (e.g. 30 seconds or more) ... until the device starts up (then let go)..... or use a pin (paper clip) to push into the RESET hole at the bottom of the device.

How do you reset the tomtom one

Hi,

There are two method depending on which version of the Tom Tom One you have (there are a few).

Method one
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Reset your device.
    Press and hold the On/Off button until your device comes on - shuts off and restarts. This can take more than fifteen seconds.

Method 2

Check the bottom of the unit to see if it has a Reset button which is recessed into a hole in the casing like this

If so follow this procedure;

  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.

  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.
Hope this helps. Please do take a moment to rate the answer. Thanks.

Our tomtom one 3rd edition stopped working it will not switch on or charge up even th ough green light comes on charger when plugged into car

try resetting it, but first put it on the charger for a few hours to make sure its charged. using a paper clip or something similar, depress and hold the reset button located on the bottom of the unit for 15 seconds, then hold the power button for up to 5 seconds till the unit starts.

if that fails, hook your tomtom to your computer and run tomtom home and see if that will update or repair it.

TomTom One shows a green charging light but when the button is pressed it fails to turn on

try the hard reset first (hold the reset for about 15 seconds..its the little pin hole on the bottom) if that fails, plug it in to your computer for a few hours via the usb cable, then try again. if that fails, download tomtom home if you haven't already and connect to tomtom home

Hi my tomtom 910 go wont switch on ], but when useing the charger the little green light lights up and will stil not switch on ive tries the hard resetting and does not work

I've had a similar problem on 2 TomTom 910s.
First, try holding in the reset button while holding the power switch down for 5 seconds.

If that doesn't work, let it charge for 12 hours and while it's still charging, hold the power switch down for 5 seconds.

It worked for me on both

Good luck

Does it have reset button not coming on but is charged

You need to use a safety pin to reset the TOM TOM.

The reset button is on the bottom of the unit. It is a very small hole.

Put the pin in there, hold it for a few seconds and that should enable you to turn it back on.

My tomtom doesnt turns on. It shows the green led when pressing the power button, but doesnt show anything. It doesnt charge and doesnt show any led while on charge. I tried the reset for 10 sec (and 15...

Remove the micro sd card from your TomTom. Look at the bottom of your unit, where the copper contacts are (where the unit mounts to the windshield mount). You will notice a "cut-out" in the plastic case, just above the contacts. The reset button is there. Use a paper clip and depress this button for 15 seconds. Now press the power button, and it should turn on. Now replace the sd card.
