    Default Tomtom go 530 usb prob

    Hi guys

    My tomtom 530 has taken a power surge of the motor and now when I plug in usb to charge it switches off and wont restart until you remove usb and press the on button, so it wont take a charge from cigarette lighter or the compter, I think its fried but would a new usb unit fitted by someone fix it you think?

    thanks for looking

    Way too complicated for me I'm afraid, thanks for posting anyway, much appreciated mate.

    I was really just wondering if the power surge had damaged the tomtom beyond the usb problem and the fixing of the usb was likely not worth the hassle.

    Took it to a specialist today mate, he will look at it and let me know if it's fixable, he did notice burnt marks on main board, hopefully he can fix it.

    Thanks for all your help my friend, true gent.
