Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
Light is on but does not start up.
Most likely cause: Blown components on power board. Very common problem , usually caused by a faulty cigarette lighter lead or a voltage spike from car electrics , OR plugging in the wrong charger ( car phone chargers are at much higher voltage )BUT , sometimes the processor locks up and results in similar sympTOMs ( excuse that pun ) . Therefore , try resetting the tomtom by inserting a paper clip or similar thin wire into the very tiny hole underneath ( marked reset ). One quick press is enough and you should feel it click as its a tactile switch ( inside the hole ). Ignore any other suggestions that you need to hold the switch in or press it for 'x' seconds as they are wrong. A quick press is all thats needed. Then try turning your tomtom on in the normal way. GOOD LUCK.
