Excellent fault-finding and an even better result!

Normally, this sort of exercise ends in "Yes, I can conclusively say where the problem lies, but it's all fried!"

Wow, it seems like it's a massive problem, dubbed The Green Light of Death! Mostly caused by the wrong type of charger being used it seems.

If anybody is good at electronics, can you take a look a ...

Would it not the length og time the TT stays on after a long charge be an indication of the state of the battery?

It lasts a good 3-4hrs after the pc has charged it overnight.

Was your "working replacement" a genuine TomTom one?

Could you borrow one from a friend?

Well I got my hands on a working replacement and it didn't charge my tomtom. Something must have died on the circuitry. Interesting that it works in the dock!

Thanks for that quick reply but I'm worried now. Did I just stick 12v up it and did it cause it any harm. Hope not. I'll buy a new one from that quality online shop eBay Laughing Out Loud.

cheers.
