In general I find these sort of problems can be fixed by the below

If the Tomtom loses battery power it might cease to function with a blank screen but will show a green light when you charge it. The trick is charge it on the mains charger for at least two hours. Then reset the device with a paper clip. If you get no reponse hold down the on button for at least 20 secs and the device will show the Tomtom logo and play a drum roll and startup normally.

First you should try resetting the TomTom by inserting a thin pointer ( a paper clip is ideal ) into the reset hole underneath the TomTom . It's very tiny and is very near to the contacts under the TomTom.
Just 1 short press of the reset button is all thats required to do a reset. You can feel the button click as it's a tactile switch.
After trying a reset try switching your TomTom on the normal way.
If it won't switch on then it's very possible you have damaged components inside ( often caused by a faulty cigarette lighter lead ) .
If you are unlucky and it doesnt switch on , please reply again and i'll try and advise you firther.

Good luck

TomTom GO 910 won't turn on.


Two possibilities:
- if someone has used the wrong charger, and connected it to a 12V supply, the mainboard may be damaged. In that case, you need a replacement.
- the battery may be discharged. Even if the green light is on, it doesn't necessarily charge up. Try pushing it hard onto the mount for a few minutes, then see if it will turn on.

Tomtom 910 power problem


It is very small - a pinhole. Use a paperclip to press the button which is sunk inside the small hole.

Tomtom 730 doesn't switch on!


Hopefully all you need to do is a soft reset. To do this use a streightened paper clip and insert it into the small round hole marked reset on the bottom of your tt. Gently press the reset button in until you feel a click. Hold the reset button in for 20 seconds. Hope this does the job.

TomTom910 not charging


This is a common problem with the 910. Try putting an obstacle in the way of the wire to keep it on. Better still is to not use the home dock at all. Just plug the home charger in to the windscreen mount (device connected of course!) and charge it that way. You get a better charge and it will stay on.

Tomtom go 910


I have seen the green screen problem a few times before and this was caused by corrupted data / software or an error in booting up.
If you can't turn any TomTom off then perform a reset by inserting a paper clip into the rest hole and give 1 short press of the reset button ( it's a tactile switch so you should feel it click ) then try switching the TomTom on again the normal way. ( reset buttons are normally found through a small hole underneath the TomTom ).
If the TomTom does switch on but continues as before with the loading up problem , then it's best to format and reload all files from your backup copy.
A RED CROSS indicated a loading fault / corrupted files / incomplete files / corrupted or damaged media . ( media , meaning SD card or hard-drive )

Will not power up


Had same problem with my GO910 unit, after it was about 6 months old. Contacted TomTom and sent unit back. They said that they are aware of the problem. They sent me back a new GO 720 with 2008 maps as they said they could not fix the problem in the 910. and they were not importing anymore 910 into Australia.
