How to repair the Micro Usb connector for Tom Tom One

Picture 1: Shows the full size image of the circuit board on a TT One , once it has been opened. The arrows show: 1= the back end of the micro usb. 2= The entry point were you put the cable in to charge it up. Picture 2: A close up of the micro usb. Now look at number 3= The black plastic bit is the charging connector, this is often either pushed too far up, so when you keep connecting your charger its possible that this black plastic is pushed upwards towards number 1 and stops making a good connection.

Now look at number 3= The black plastic bit is the charging connector, this is often either pushed too far up, so when you keep connecting your charger its possible that this black plastic is pushed upwards towards number 1 and stops making a good connection.

  • If this has happened you will notice number 4 = the gate possibly pushed up as well. The gate is part of the silver cage that the black plastic is inserted into. Push the black plastic back into the case as far as it will go, with a small screwdriver and then using pliers close the gate tight.

  • The black plastic has little fins on the sides that stop it from being pushed too far in to the cage , so don't be too forceful and use common sense, or you will damage the connector

  • If after doing this you still have an issue with charging and flickering green light , next step use the needle to push the little pins on the black plastic up slightly from the cable entry side.
