Not turning on

The tomtom 910 has been working briliantly. I even used it in France. However today on the return part of my journey it refused to turn on. Please advise. The screen has remained blank so far.

Re: not turning on

You will need a paperclip/staple.

Re: not turning on

I too have encountered this problem several times. Some steps to take would be... 1)Reset it with the paperclip in the small hole located just left of center on the front of the unit. 2)Consider your installation: I.e if it's installed on your cigarette lighter don't plug anything into it because you could short out TomTom. 3) I've had two units with failure for unknown reasons and they were promptly replaced.

I had the same problem and discovered that the unit would not turm on even having been charged at home, the problem I found was that the unit was not charging from the mains charger for what ever reason but when placed back in my car hey presto (youll have to go for a reasonable journey to charge the internal battery up though) Hope this helps

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.

Tomtom GO 910 GPS stopped working

Mine is about three weeks old and just did the same thing. I ahd been using it while walking in a town in Germany. So I did not even have power/docking or PC problems.

I reset the unit with a paper clip. Look in the mounting opening at the lower rear of the 910, there is a small cut out. press this carefully, mine is now back to life and did not even lose my 'recent' list.

hold the on button (top left skinny button) for 2 seconds. And if that doesn't work, use a TINY pin to reset the unit.
