    Even with a dead battery it will start up so it's not the battery. It sounds like the green light of death (if you get a green light), common problem Usually caused by a faulty original tomtom charger, burns out some components on the circuit board, It can be repaired for around £20.

    If your device is showing the charging light, then it should still power up while plugged in the charger.
