Here are some common questions bought up during TomTom repairs.
What is the Green Light of Death?
Your TomTom battery is fully charged and you turn it on. Nothing happens, the screen is blank and there is no sound, but the little green light is lit up. This is usually caused by a power overload to your system.
The most likely cause is the car charger having developed a fault and pushing 12 volts through your TomTom instead of the permitted 5 volts. Numerous chips on the motherboard will have been blown/fried. This can be replaced.
What is the DCP - Damaged Charger Port?
Your TomTom battery is fully charged and you turn it on. The little green light is lit up. Then a couple of minutes later it shuts down. The green light `flickers` or just does not light up at all. These cause of this problem is due to a faulty charger socket and the battery is not charging properly.
When we receive a unit and SD card, we will always examine and carry out the repair. If the repair is different from your fault description when filling in the form, we will let you know what needs to be done.
Please do not try to repair the TomTom unit yourself. In most cases it will simply make the repair a lot more difficult. Don`t let your expert friend update the software unless you are 100% certain you know what he or she is doing.
