Donyale is absolutely correct! This technique also works for the Go 510 model as it did for mine. Thanks, Took 2 minutes and I am back on the "Go" again! Mike S.

Possible back light failure. don't know about 'repair for this sort of thing Mu guess is like other small electronics of this type they are made as integrated 'lumps' and there is not a repair option. Try the Tech support at the TT website Especially if it is fairly recent. May be a replacement option

Tom tom is dimming and blanking the screen within about 30 seconds. I can touch the screen and it reappears but does it again

Tap on: the main screen. Tap on: Change Preference. Tap on: Arrow Keep tapping on the arrow till you reach Preferences 6 of 6 Page. Here you will find Battery saving preference. Tap on it. Tap on: Never dim screen. (I think you selection would be dim screen between instructions at present.). Tap done. On the next screen select : Device stays on when external power is lost. (A green tick mark should appear to verify it is selected.) Tap done.

My tom tom one xl screen won't light up. It still talks to you but the screen is blank.

At this point a system restore might work. Hold down the power button until prompted otherwise.

If your GPS is more that 18 months old it may be that the battery has died.

They can be replaced and a good source is Ebay.

About 18 month to 2 years is the expected lifespan.

Its an awfully short lifespan in my view but thats how it is I am afraid.

The fact that you get the green light should mean its charging but its pretty clear its not holding that charge.

Sorry for the bad news.

Lcd screen do not light up

Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.
contact them about the problem...
