Question about Tomtom GO 510 GPS Receiver

Open Question

Tomtom no sound

Yesterday my tomtom one was dead just a black screen. I was advised to reset it which i did. It did the trick and is now working but now there is no sound from the speaker at all. Help please.

Many thanks
mau I have lost the sound several times on my new Tom Tom, I have also reset but this no longer solves the problem. My Tomtom is a GO 520 - i cannot select it from the list below, so I gave selected the 510 instead.

SOURCE: Tomtom no sound

i updated my tomtom via computer using their software , it put on a newer version tomtom on it and hence the sound started to work, but shortly after it would not startup again- reset is no longer working....who would have thought youd get such technical probs with the device manufactured by tomtom being the leader in its field.

SOURCE: tomtom one displays no maps found

The problem with that approach is that you cannot transfer maps from another device onto yours without product key activation codes. This is to prevent piracy or abuse of maps on individual devices.

Did you find a good solution?

SOURCE: tom tom home does not see my tom tom go 520

Hi canal_boat_m

Try this solution:

STEP 1 Un-install Tom Tom Home from your PC

STEP 2 Click on the link below:

http://tomtom.com/lib/img/cs/S4S/files/RemoveRegEntries_TTGOv1.exe
This will download a little removal program for the Tom Tom Home program.
A Black window will appear briefly then close.
• Make sure that you have got Administrator rights on the PC. Otherwise you may not be allowed to connect new hardware (especially the case when using office computers)
• Reboot your PC

STEP 3 Visit Tom Tom website and download the current new version of Tom Tom Home and install it to your PC
STEP 4 Connect the TomTom

• Make sure the device is fully charged before connecting it to the computer. Ideally a mininum of 4 hours charge.
• Reset the device using a paper clip (see http://www.tomtom.com/6965). When resetting, keep the reset button pushed in for at least 20 seconds, but DO NOT turn the device back on just yet.
• Ensure that your TomTom has power connected to it. There should be a green light on the TomTom unit. If your device came with a Home Charger, please make sure that is plugged in to the TomTom also.
Your Tom Tom should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' if it does tap YES.

SOLUTION:
Your unit should now be recognized by your PC.

IF IT DOESN'T then follow the instructions below:

1. Connect your unit to your PC;
2. Copy two folders to your PC (namely 'Raster' and the one which holds all your maps - probably called 'United Kingdom and Eire';
3. Using Windows Utility, right click on the Tom Tom drive unit and select Fomat;
4. Switch off the unit and soft-reset it with a paper clip (but hold it in for at least 20 mins) and then re-connect it and power it up;
5. Tom Tom Home should now detect the unit and your unit should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' so tap YES;
6. Tom Tom Home will now say your device needs updating - and if you apply all the changes it will restore it to Factory Finished!
7. Then all's needed is to replace the two folders you backed up and any other items like mp3's and sounds, pics, etc.

TomTom Go730 worked great yesterday, is a brick today. Battery charged, reset per TT website instructions, nothing. Any suggestions?


not much to do with that unit, check with a volt meter to verify that power is present at the plug cord charging, if all your efforts fail and the unit is dead your trouble is in the unit itself, this unit is not serviceable by any one other than one with knowledge and equipment to repair this unit, check for warranty if not obtain a new one,,,?Sorry

I plugged the system in, the screen would not come on


Hi.


First check the charger connection. If an alternative charger is available test different chargers.


If the Tomtom is starting, then try first resetting your TomTom.

To reset the TomTom follow the instructions on TomTom website, clicking here: TomTom, portable GPS car navigation systems - Factory reset .

If the Nav is still freezing or is dead after reset, then there is an internal fault.


In both situations the alternatives are going to a TomTom shop or calling the TomTom service number listed on manual and following the instructions given by their representatives.

If the unit is completely dead, as a first thing better going to a TomTom shop and asking to test a different charger.


The charger can also be tested at home using a multimeter on charger connector.

Regards.

My tomtom go 910 will not switch on it has the green light on at the top left when plugged into a charger but nothing turns on when pressing button for 2 seconds any ideas??


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.

Charging but nothing on screen


A good place to start is a reset. -Make sure the battery is charged completely (charge for two hours to be sure) -remove the SD card, if you use one -hold down the reset button with a pen for at least 15 seconds -release the reset button and hold down the on/off button for at least 5 seconds. -replace the SD card If that doesnt work: Make sure you have the latest software for the device by using TomTom Home. Sometimes just updating the software will kick it into gear, so to speak. And lastly, if it is just dead, contact TomTom customer care and they will repair or replace it for you. Before you call them make sure you have a TomTom account. To register:https://www.tomtom.com/myTomTom/myProfile/ Hope this helps!
