Tom tom will not switch on when i try to charge it the led light does not come on i have hardly used my tom tom


What is your charging method? In car or house hold plug? Suggest that charger is not working (Green) if light on Tom Tom (at bottom near charger lead) is not lighting. Check your charger and see if you have an indicator light on it showing it is on. If yes, plug in Tom, then press and hold the "on" button for 15 seconds constinuously. Tom Tom should reboot.

After 6 months not turning on


if all you are getting is a green light and no screen coming on, you have blown one of two chips inside it by using a dodgy car charger

I HAVE A TOM TOM GO 720 I SWITCH IT ON NO PROBLEM BUT WITHIN 30 SECONDS BATTERY WITH A YELLOW I IN A TRIANGLE COMES UP AND GOES OFF


The GO 720 charges quite slowly when attached to the in-vehicle cigarette lighter cord. If you have a USB attachment (that allows you to connect the GO720 to your computer) just insert the GO720 into the USB cradle - you don't have to turn it on - and let it sit there for about 10 hours. You should see the green light on the GO720 indicating that power is being received. In fact, I don't think you even need to turn on the computer, as power is always fed to the USB circuit. If you see the green light, then the GO720 is being charged. I think your GPS just needs a good charge.

Tom tom won't turn off


if it does not proceed when the icon is selected, presume data corruption or in fact no data.
TomTom is renouned for this type of problem.
try rteinstalling the map data from the source.

try a reset first ( small pinhole on rear) put open paperclip end in and gently push the button inside) if this still fails then data installation is the go

Playstation 2, red light won't turn green


Sounds like an internal fuse has blown. There are several guides on the net, and a couple forums discussions. Try here:

google it up - if you're not happy repairing it yourself (which needs just a multimeter and a hand full of small, generic fuses) then you'll need to get it professionally mended. which could cost you more than simply buying a new one.

My tom tom won't turn on. While charging it, the green light goes on, but pressing the power button does nothing. It's just dead. Is there a solution?


I had the same problem with the go 920, I thought it was broken, 
Solution was to insert pin into reset hole for 15 Sec, after which hold the power on button for at least 5 Secs

My tom tom 710 is dead the green light is on but nothing on it!


Change the motherboard, green light on and nothing happening is quite common, you can find motherboards on ebay for £22 +p&p.

Its quite easy to do and worth while as the 710 and 910 are still very good units.

Tom tom go 720


I have exactly the same problem. Everything worked fine until I did a software upgrade. I have tried the reset suggestion but it has not fixed the problem. I have been told that a possible solution is to install the version of the OS that was there prior to the upgrade but I cannot find this anywhere
