I also encountered this problem. I eventually disconnected the battery and that did the trick. You may also want to try connecting it to an external power source (in your car).

To disconnect the battery, after removing the two tiny torx screws, I used a well worn putty knife to very carefully pry the back off. The putty knife had sharp edges.

My tomtom go 510 has decided it will no longer switch on, I hold the on buttn down and the green light comes on but nothing else happens! Any ideas? Is it time to get rid and buy a new one?


make sure it has a good charge on it (a few hours on the home charger if you have one) then locate the reset hole where the mount attaches ..(see picture) and use a paper clip to reset it...depress the reset for about 15 seconds...if theres nothing else wrong with it, it will restart...you might have to press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds also, after the reset.

How To Reset Your Magellan Maestro/Roadmate GPS Units


Factory Reset
Do not attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.
  1. Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
  2. Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
  3. If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.
If your Maestro GPS Touch Screen Doesn't work, try performing a Hardware Reset
  1. Remove the Magellan Maestro from the holding cradle.
  2. Hold down the "Power" button on the right side of the device, until the unit powers on.
  3. Straighten the end of a paper clip. Place the paper clip in the reset hole, located on the left side of the GPS unit. Hold down the "Reset" button for 10 seconds. Remove the paper clip.
  4. Turn the Magellan Maestro unit off by holding down the "Power" button. Turn the unit back on again. The device is now reset.

If your Roadmate GPS is locked up, try performing a Hardware Reset
  1. On the RoadMate, press + + - - + -
  2. The "hidden menu" will appear.
  3. From there, you can access the shell and perform a hard reset.

Where is the reset button on the Tomtom xl340s


The TomTom XL 340-S uses the power button as a reset. With the unit turned off, hold down the power button for approximately 15 seconds, until the TomTom turns on. As soon as the unit turns on, release the power button. The unit is now reset.

Press the Power button on the top right corner of the case.
If unit will not power on, battery may be dead. Try connecting car charger or power adapter to unit.
To charge battery faster, leave unit connected to power adapter or car cord. Press and hold Power button to turn unit off. Screen will show "Going into charge mode."

WILL NOT TURN ON


try the reset button/switch:
Magellan Maestro models - the location of reset button is on the left, right, or bottom side inside a small hole. Use an object to apply pressure to depress the reset button. Also try holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit off and again holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit on.

If the unit continues to freeze, update to the latest firmware update
. Firmware updates are located on Magellan's support page. On Magellan's support page select your product family, model, and then press the submit button. Firmware updates are located in the updates/upgrade section
