Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Installing battery in tom tom 910. Unit non-functional.

After reading the thread related to this subject, I was able to replace the battery. I then plugged in the desk charger/interface (The unit did not come on automatically) and let it charge overnight. I turned it on this morning and it displayed the PLEASE WAIT green/white screen and read, "formatting" in the upper left hand corner. Windows indicated that it did not recognize the USB Device. When finished formatting it displays the line drawing of the unit on the green/white screen without the red 'X' but Windows still does not recognize it. The first time, I disconnected the USB cable from the computer- then reconnected it; the second time I removed the unit from the charger/interface and "RESET" it. It went through the same 'formatting' procedure after both times and has been sitting on the green/white screen for at least 5-10 mins.

Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.

Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.

Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Stip down your tom tom unit, google for instructions and there is a set with pictures, But if not,
1, take the front screen surround off first, be gentle and prise it of with a flat screw driver, then unsrew the chassis from the plastic cover (4 x torx screws under the rubber feet)

2, unscrew the motherboards (torx again) and unclip the cable for the battery, and remore the eject mechanisum for the unit.

3 you may hadve to unscrew the harddrive and front screen if memory serves me well, but not to hard to do at all and my skills are basic but backed up by curiosity :o).

Hmmm...


If you are asking how to remove the mount from the GPS, I believe on the Tom Tom Go 910, it slides off. You should be able to hold the mount and slide the unit up off the mount, if I remember correctly.

Back light of the LCD display is not working


Get a RMA by TomTom by callinging them directly (see on TomToms webpage) I've solved by shipping my unit to Neaderland with UPS at no cost, they replaced the motherboard (not the display, this  just remained the same!) I've received the repaired 910 after 5 days and I've spent no one cent! And I've got also the battery, AC power supply and software replacement! Other problems of the software are still present: the unit won't cange colors by night-light changes (only one time after a reset...), tryes to connect to phantom computers, after a power on it get off and then on if connected on the car support,... The 910 is a crazy device, not stable at all. I think I'll change it with the new model Go930T Ciao (sorry for my bat english)

The unit has a lithium-ion battery and can be subject to being "overcharged". Try COMPLETELY discharging the battery and then recharging for 4 hours.
