Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver
I was backing up my TomTom through TomTom Home and my computer went into power save or sleep mode during the back up (I didn't have my laptop plugged in). When I turned my computer back on, TomTom was frozen on screen that displays it's picture before going to all your options. It also wouldn't turn off. I reset, it turned back on, but acted like it was doing an initial reboot, then froze on picture page again. Please help.
Hi, Not a nice problem that. Try connecting your tomtom to PC ( not through home ) so the tomtom will look like a USB drive in "My Computer". if TomTom Home tries to load up , cancel it. Look in "My Compuer" If you do see the TomTom as a drive , open it up and copy the folders and files to your PC. If that works, now you have a backup and you can have a mess around knowing that if you mess things up , at least you can put things back as they were and you won't have made anything worse than it was before. Once thats done , try a harder reset in normal way but also hold the ON button in whilst doing the reset . Many people press too hard on the reset button and also hold it too long so just give one single press , only hard enough to feel it click in , then out. Thats all it needs for a reset and it avoide damaging the switch ( yes , I have seen many reset switched stuck in or broken ). I think theres 2 possible causes for your problem . 1/ You now have a corrupted file on your TomTom preventing the boot-up continuing. 2/ Your Tomtom is still trying to perform the last function ( backing up through TomTom-home ) and has somehow got stuck in that loop. For the moment , try the above and see how you get on and if you donn't solve it please post on this forum again .
Good luck .
