Re: tom tom go won't start

The car charger has blown a chip inside (well known fault), they can be fixed but better value to sell it on ebay and buy a new one

How do I reset my TOMTOM N14644?

Go to TOM TOM´s homepage
Connect the GPS unit to the PC using the USB2 connection.
You will be given the possibility to restore the unit´s files. This takes a while, but it solved the problem for me.

My tom tom is stuck on opening page. cannot do anything with it.

Most TomTom GPS have a small reset button underneath. you will need a paper clip to activate the reset button. This should start it up and clear the locked out state you described

Tom tom one not turning on used 3 months

I had some problems with the 920. It started to not turn on. The it just died completely. After opening the case and testing the battery. I concluded the battery was dead and Un-chargable.

Which is most likely the case with yours.
Try this first. Then contact customer support.
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.

  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card

Unless you are good with electronics. Then id change the battery myself. I used a cell phone battery.
It has worked for the last year.

Regards and I hope this helped.

Tom Tom go 910 screen get frozen every time I turn it on

Sounds like your firmware is corrupted. I have fixed a few 910's with this same problem. If you have the Tom Tom Home program installed, try to reinstall the firmware using Tom Tom's website.

Make sure you always select to disconnect the device before unplugging it. You might have unplugged it from the PC while it was still writing data. This will certainly corrupt the firmware.
