When I plugged the gps into the cigarette plug, it worked fine and I was able to use it after a few days like a pro. This morning, I turned it on, and after a few minutes it just turned off. The green light in the left corner stays lit but it will not come on at all. The screen stays black.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug.
The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.
- if someone has used the wrong charger, and connected it to a 12V supply, the mainboard may be damaged. In that case, you need a replacement.
- the battery may be discharged. Even if the green light is on, it doesn't necessarily charge up. Try pushing it hard onto the mount for a few minutes, then see if it will turn on.
Have same thing. I did call Tomtom and they are guessing ,just like me ,that battery is dead and offered me US$ 75 off brand new go 730 and old one u can keep. Was told ,they dont sell battery replacement .
Sounds like someone will sue their **** soon as class action .
The 910 has a small reset button in the area of the socket. You will see a small circular notch molded into the housing near the socket. A small paperclip will fit in the reset hole. Reset the unit and it should start normally.

click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall

Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiverflashing white X in a red circle I discovered that there was a file on the 910 called CLMDATA which was corrupt. When I deleted this in Windows explorer, the unit started up and worked OK. This file is recreated when the unit starts up
