    The reset worked! Very difficult to find the button, but used a paper clip as suggested. Many thanks!

    The headphone jack does not work. I get sound from the unit speaker but when I plug in a headset it does not work. The plug does wiggle while inserted in the headphone outlet.

The power light only shows that power is getting to the TomTom. It proves nothing else and doesn't even confirm that the internal battery is charging. If you have tried a reset ( by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole at base of your TomTom and that hasn't worked then it's likely you have blown internal components . Usually caused by faulty charger. I hope the reset works ... good luck

Recently while updating my Tomtom 920 it went blank & is not switching on.Also would like to know as to where the reset button is located


The reset button is a hole at the base of the device, usually right beside the bar codes. Use a straightened paper clip (or something similar), insert into the hole and push it (for 20 seconds).
Make sure your device is (well) charged and the charging light is still on (while you're resetting it) ... also remove the SD card before resetting.
Then press the Power On/OFF button and hold it down for 5 seconds or more, until the device boots ... (then release)

My tomtom 920 simply won't turn on, I used it yesterday and it was fine, though it did warn me that the battery is very low. I have charged it for 1hr but it still won't come on. What could be the problem...


The batery is finished, even if you plug it in the cigar lighter and the green light goes on, your TOMTOM will still not work when the batery is dead..get one real cheap on ebay.
Good luck

the battery is probably to low. very common problem with these and many other models...hook it up to your computer via the usb cable for a few hours to get a good charge on it. then press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds.

if that fails, let me know and we can try something else, but this usually works 99% of the time

Unable to change symbol on tomtom 920 sat navigation.


using TT home check that you still have the symbol you want installed on the TT. I had a similar problem where it would seem to forget what I had choosen on occasion and sometimes I had to use TT home to check and re-install. problem itself seemed to just go away. (Guess it got sick of me telling it LOL)

I have a TOMTOM go 920. It was on and just shut down.


Do you have it plugged into a power source?

I would try an alternate plug spot, or using your AC power if you have a plug for it.

If that doesn't work, let me know.

- You can also do a hard reset, but don't see why you should need to, but anyway, here's how to:
  1. Hold reset button pressed for approx 15 sec
  2. Press power button while pressing reset button
  3. Release reset button while still pressing power button
  4. Device should start, hold power button pressed until you see white text on screen, last line should read "RTC..."
  5. Release power button
Hope this helps you to achive you goals...
