SOURCE: Tomtom fault

Having upgraded my Tom Tom ONE Europe with the latest application download and the latest Europe Maps, the device will not now switch on using battery power. The battery is fine, but the device will only switch on when power is present at the USB port. As I performed the two upgrades one after the other I do not know which introduced the change (poor practice by me I'm afraid!) No solution as yet.

SOURCE: TomTom 720 does not TURN ON

It isn't heat related, mine is doing the same thing as is my Dad's. I have used mine in the heat, but my Dad's hasn't been used in about a month. I think it has to do with the last software update. That is when my problems started

SOURCE: TomTom ONE XL will not power up or charge in my vehicle.

I have the same problem and it is not the fuse, as the adapter light is red in two different vehicles, it's getting power, but the light should be green. I plug it into my computer and it gets power, but I can't get past the boot up screen. Piece of work.

SOURCE: My computer can not find driver to install TomTom Home

I am the original poster, rdsrds2, and after 4 go arounds with TomTom tech support I finally got someone who knew exactly what to do. My problem is solved. Some of the other solutions posted here may be equally valid. To all who are having installation problems, here is the download you want:

SOURCE: charging the Tom Tom - unit shuts off with car charger plugged in

The shut down' problem is caused by a faulty 'USB' charger socket

Swap out the socket and make sure you resolder ALL 5 terminals and the 4 pcb clamps.

Only attempt this if your skilled enough. A botched repair will not work and cause more even fatal damage to the pcb.

Sorry if I just depressed you but that's what need to be done.

TomTom support lie and tell you its the navcore, NOT

I have carried out this repair myself and it did cure the problem.

GOT 5 NEW BATTERY PUT A NEW 1 ON 12-31-2016 & IT NEVER CHARGED IS IT POSSIBALE GET A BAD BATTERY , I AM PUTTING IN A NEW ONE. OR IT CAN BE A DIFFERENT PROBLEM


Yes it is possible to get a dud battery, but it is unusual. Chances are good that your charging system is at fault. Also depends if you just make very short trips, or use a lot of accessories while driving on these short trips....

How to maintain Battery on our mobile phone for long lasting performance?


How to maintain our mobile phone battery for long term usage?

Many phone users never knew if how long the battery will last. As long as we use it regularly for a day or two,they are satisfied indeed.

Some problems.

* Other phone users preferred to buy mid or low quality batteries cause it is affordable,but the consequences,battery easily drained and immediately turns into low battery level.this can also damage the phone when the voltage is no longer at ease and the phone comes out with a short circuit board.

* Making a call,playing games,listening to music etc. while the phone is on charging.

When we got low battery warning,suddenly we plug the charger to the phone immediately cause we're expecting incoming calls,we might lose the momentum of the game or save the game level if suddenly the phone turns off. The result, phone is getting hot and the battery is deform due to simultaneous current entering the phone.A voltage coming from the battery and a voltage coming from the charger. also may lead into a short circuit problem and affects some parts of the mobile components.

* Overnight charging or charging the phone for a long time.

This might happens when we're using the phone until we almost got asleep at night while the mobile is on charged. Exceeding the voltage requirement of a battery as well as the phone itself may lead into battery discharge,deform structure and also causes short circuit problem.


Tips

1. Buy original battery coming from an authorized retail outlets and ask for a warranty for security purpose. Look for the quality seal product to assure that you've got the right product.

2. Follow the manual on the charging procedure when you bought a new battery. Observe the initial charging time and the regular charging time.

3. Never use your phone while on charged. (if it's important, you can do it sometimes but not regularly) make sure the phone is turn off and observe the regular charging time.


Hoping that this simple guide of mine helps.... Good Day!!!

Tom tom troubleshooting


Your GPS will "freeze" (i.e. stop and shut down) if / when the battery level is low on the TomTom. If you have plugged it in a power source to charge it and the battery indicator shows that it is fully charged ... and then, when you unplug it from the power source, it freezes after a short period of time, it is likely that the battery will no longer hold a good charge.
If it does that while the TomTom is plugged into a power source, it indicates that the battery does not hold a charge anymore.
If this is the case, you may wish to get the battery changed (at an authorized TomTom service center, or do it yourself ... after getting the appropriate replacement battery and the tools/kit, and instructions). Just remember to follow the (initial) charging instructions (after you get a new battery) ... to ensure that the battery will hold a good charge for a long time.
Or junk it and get a new TomTom.

My pantech ease wont charge


You probably need a new battery. The fact that it says it's charging tells me that the charger is most likely working correctly. So it's the battery.

Optio E10 Keeps running thru batteries, I bought a new 8 pk for a field trip with my sons school, I took 5 pictures and had to change batteries, placed in anew set and it wouldn't turn on. waited about 15...


This sounds very much to me like a short circuit causing the batteries to drain so quickly. The most common cause would be moisture or water damage. Another likely cause could be a malfunction of the control circuits causing the unusual power drain. ie the camera may be continuously charging the flash.
It may be time to consider this camera has seen better days and find a replacement, unless of course it is still under a warranty.

Why will my GPS not stay on?


Have you fully charged it and is it continuously plugged in and still switching off? The internal battery in not good on GPS units and I always keep mine plugged into my cigar lighter to power it. When I finish a journey I leave it plugged in and charging when I dont need it-if driving locallly etc.

Tomtom300 gps mains charging +


1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?

Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.

2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?

You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad

3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?

You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.

Will not charge


I have a similar problem and I think I solved it (orr found a way to work around it). It looks like the contacts are not connecting firmly so even though the green light may be on, the charging conneciton is not made. With the tomtom on your home dock from the front page on your tomtom, touch near the lower right of the screen on the satellite strength indicator, this should bring up a screen where it shows (among other things) your batter status at the top right. If it is charging, the word charging will be under the battery strength indicator. Just play with it until you get the word "charging" to appear under the picture of the battery.then HANDS OFF until it is charged. I doubt this will be successful with the car charger since the movement of the car will likely jar the connection loose. Good luck.
