    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.

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.

Cant reset tom tom


I have now resolved my Tomtom 1 V2 problem (posted 12th Nov 2008).
I emailed Tom tom directly, describing the problem I was having, they responded almost immediately.
Tomtom could not have been any more helpful, the advice they gave me was spot on, and absolutely correct.
Not only did they solve the error I had with my unit, but they made it work much better than it ever had.
Briefly, I was told to join (for free) Tomtom Home, then delete all of the operating system on my satnav and download the latest Tomtom operating system, plus a few other upgraded programs.
I am no computer genius, and admit to being more than a little apprehensive in doing this, but, it could not have been a more straight forward or simple procedure.
As before, my Tomtom now works so much better, faster and with far more features.
Another benefit of being a member of Tomtom Home is that you are offered many products such as map updates at greatly reduced prices.
Regards,
Chris Vince

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.
