If your Tom Tom does not have a reset button hold the power button till it turns back on. This can take 20 seconds or longer. This will reset your Tom Tom.

My tomtom won't turn on when I've charged it for several hours in the car and now at my computer. The green light is on but I still can't get it to turn on.


try the usb cable to your. this is the recommended method to charge a tomtom2.gif when it wont power on. for reasons unexplained by tomtom they do not recommend the car or house charges.

plug it in via the usb cable to your computer for a few hours(make sure the green light is on and nice and bright) then press and hold the power button(this could take up to 20 seconds)

Tom tom will not turn on, but charge light works.


Hi,

Please connect your tom tom to the power adapter first.Get a paper clip and press the reset button under the SD card slot of your tom tom.Reset button is a very small small hole at the back near the sd card slot.Keep pressing the reset button for 2mins and also press the power button till the light comes on.

This should fix the issue.Let me know if you need any more help.

Tom tom one not turning on used 3 months


I had some problems with the 920. It started to not turn on. The it just died completely. After opening the case and testing the battery. I concluded the battery was dead and Un-chargable.

Which is most likely the case with yours.
Try this first. Then contact customer support.
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.

  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card

Unless you are good with electronics. Then id change the battery myself. I used a cell phone battery.
It has worked for the last year.

Regards and I hope this helped.
