Guys make sure you know where the reset button is . Ie for tomtom 500 it is at the back and you have to unclip from the adapter.

How do I start my tomtom 2405. It has been sitting for 1 year. Charged overnight. The start button is green

Have you tried to RESET it ? .... either, hold down the power ON/OFF button for a long while ... (e.g. 30 seconds or more) ... until the device starts up (then let go)..... or use a pin (paper clip) to push into the RESET hole at the bottom of the device.

My TomTom One V3 won't switch on. The green light shows it as charging but it won't power up. Tried reset as discussed with TomTom

If reset not worked, then must open up, take out battery and then reset, then you must hook up USB and upgrade software, also maybe need to get new battery too, often battery seems OK, but not,.

I turn on my tom tom go 700 and the screen appears with a picture of the tom tom in a green box and then it stops and i wont turn of

If your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is frozen, won’t turn on or does not behave as it should, it can be fixed by resetting or restarting your TomTom device.
A reset will not delete any data from your device, with the exception of SMS messages on TomTom GO500/700.
  1. Connect your GO/ONE/RIDER to the power charger. If you have a power charger, use it to power your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER. If you do not have a power charger, make sure that the battery in your TomTom GO/ONE is fully charged.
    Note: You need to charge your GO/ONE for at least 2 hours using the 12-24V cigarette lighter adapter.
  2. Reset your GO/ONE/RIDER. To reset the unit, you simply have to push a straightened paper clip (or something similar) into the RESET hole on the device.
    • On TomTom GO 910/710/510, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device.
    • On TomTom GO 700/500/300, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device with the word RESET right next to it.
    • On TomTom ONE, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device, with the word RESET right next to it (just below the SD card slot).
    • On TomTom RIDER, the RESET hole is on the bottom of the device, behind the SD card door. When opening the SD card door you will see the RESET hole on the left, right underneath the SD card slot.
  3. Your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is now reset. Finally, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds.

Doesn' t turn on

1. Connect the TomTom to the USB for power (green light should be on).
2. Hit the reset button on the bottom of the device - you should feel it depress slightly.
3. Press firmly and hold the power button and count to 10.
5. Try this a couple of times if it doesn't work the first time.

Even if your battery is ****, the power connection has a pass-through, so you can still use the device as long as its connected to the charger.

Seeking the repair of my tomtom Go 910

One suggestion is to plug the Tom Tom using the temporary power cord to you home circuit (not the power source from the car). That worked for me. Sometime the Tom Tom shuts down when left in the hot car requiring a reset. Then the best way is to plug in at home and restart. Try it, otherwise I can't help.

Remove the micro sd card from your TomTom. Look at the bottom of your unit, where the copper contacts are (where the unit mounts to the windshield mount). You will notice a "cut-out" in the plastic case, just above the contacts. The reset button is there. Use a paper clip and depress this button for 15 seconds. Now press the power button, and it should turn on. Now replace the sd card.
