Runner 2 charging, but not syncing

I have a Runner 2 which I've used for a few years now without too much trouble.

I usually charge and synch my watch on a daily basis through the connection cable on my PC.

I have come back from a weekend away and have filled-up the memory on the watch. I have plugged the watch in as usual to upload my latest walks. The watch is charging, but isn't syncing to upload the walks and empty the memory.

I have checked the terminals on the watch and the USB connector and they are clean, plus the watch is charging so there is a signal going through. I have also clicked the TomTom icon on my computer (this usually pops up automatically to sync when I plug the watch in), but just get the message "connect your TomTom device to your computer."

Ideas anyone?

    Two of the pins (the outer ones) are used to charge and two are used to transfer data (the inner ones). It is likely a pin is stuck. Inspect them and pry any loose with a pin so that they are all fully extended.

    I have same problem. All my activities record on watch but later I have problem to upload anything from watch to TomTom Sports.
    I did power reset but without solving my problem.
    Can anyone help me with advice?
