    This seems to be a problem for lots of tom tom owners so why do the manufacturers do NOTHING about this problem whatever the solution might be. I have 2 tom tom 1 same problem.

Charge it through the computer using your USB cable for a good 2 hours and try switching it on again. It happened to me and it seemed to work fine after that.

Take it back to shop. You stated worked out of box then stopped working so assume brand new. Also contact tomtom support as it was a common problem with tom tom one and under guarantee they replaced mine.

Not sure which model year you have but check for a small reset button on bottom press and hold it with a paper clip or similar. Also try holding the power button for a minute to see if it reboots, try removing the memory card first. If it starts don't insert the memory card until the unit is off. If that still does not work click on the link below which will explain the reset in detail.
Thanks for using FixYa

Tom tom was working in the car while driving. The tom tom stopped


There is a small hole on the tomtom device base. Inside it there is a reset button.
Press it and turn device on.
Try to turn it on while connected to the electricity, if it is a battery problem it should work
If it doesn't work I suggest you to bring it to a tomtom support center.

Blank screen but green light is on


I have had this on my 910, It turns out that the motherboard needs replacing and after looking on here its quite common.

Its quite esay to replace and perhaps worth changing the battery whilst your in there as well.

Google for instructions or flick through this site.

To only way you can fix it is taking apart the Tom Tom, checking if the flat ribbon cable and connector to the screen are well in place and eventually replace the display ($80 on Ebay).
Unfortunately this will invalidate the guaranty, and you risk to damage your GPS if you are not a really experienced DIYer. Tom Tom offer one year full guaranty on all their receivers.
