If you're out of warranty there are third party gps repair services that take care of this problem. There are also gps repair tutorials that show you how to DIY replace the screen, if you're comfortable with taking things apart.

Hi, i have just been given a tom tom 720 which isn't working. I suspect it has got a serious problem but would be grateful for any comments which you have about the problem.When turning on the tom tom it...


You could try gently inserting a straightened paper clip into the small round reset hole in the base of the Go720 and pressing/holding slightly on the reset button for c.6 secs. This should reset most basic problems.

Do you have the TomTom Home software that was supplied with the TomTom machines - if you open that on your PC and then attach your TomTom via the supplied cradle or USB lead it should provide a screen asking you if you want to connect to PC. If it boots straight past this you would normally reset it, as above, then restart and accept the question. This should then check the software on the device for updates etc.

Otherwise if no screen display it could just have been dropped and damaged, might be worth opening up to check if the backlight has been broken, though I'm not sure you can get spares (certainly not from TomTom). There is a firm at www.satnavrepairservice.com who will quote you for repairs that need parts.

I have a tomtom720 that is now refusing to go past the start up screen. Pressing reset or holding the 'on' button does not do anything. How might I reboot or reload software?


Try to restore the firmware first. If that fails, there may be a motherboard issue. There is a third party tomtom Repair service that will replace the logic board and a tomtom repair guide if you want to replace it yourself, the screen is available on ebay.

Restarts unexpectedly and slow to start


The TomTom 520 and 720 are the same unit. the differance is the maps. The 520 has maps of the US and the 720 has maps of Europe. Download the free clearflash utility from TomTom and run it a couple of times. This should clear up your problem. Sometimes the mapset config in the map gets full and it has to be cleared.

Tom Tom 720 keeps jumping to main menu


Well I finally figured it out for those who might run across this problem.

It seems that when it got hot and expanded the grey bezel around the screen would touch the screen just enough to activate it. I gently pried the bezel up just a bit and it seems to have solved the problem.
