Usually resetting the unit (pressing the reset button) is supposed to fix this

Re: is there sonething wrong with my tomtom go 510?

I've had the same problem, some one on this site says it the battery. It makes sense. It's only $21.95 at, so hopefully that will work. If not try a garmin. I just bought on b/c I had to have something and it worked right out of the box without downloading/uploading/spinning or your head/or prayer.

Tomtom 510 unable to turn on.

Jun 11, 2009- Like I said before,we tried to power it up,even with the power supply hooked up, didn't start.I searched your site and found this. It worked. I pluged the charger in for power, green light on now,hold down the right hand lower corner of the screen (the screen itself) and while holding the corner down then hold down the ON button.The person who submitted this also said that it would reset the tomtom to the original setup that it was delievered with. We lucked out, our data was still there and working. By the way our battery was way way down. I wish I remembered the person who gave this solution, because he really deserves a BIG THANK YOU, and your site also THANKS. We would of throwed the thing away.How many were throwned away? THANKS BOB

Tomtom 510 doesn't reset

Before you keep resetting your tomtom I would intall a new battery. Call your closest "batteries plus store" or "radioshack store" and then try to reset it, it might be only the battery and nothing to do with the reseting.....

Will not take a charge

I have just the same problem. Initially the battery was flashing to say that it was low on charge even when it was plugged in, then it flashed that the battery was empty and switched itself off. When plugged in the green light comes on, but still cannot turn TomTom 710 on. Also it will not connect to the computer.

TOMTOM 510 not reading SD card

I did find out how to solve the problem. I can't remember exactly where I found the solution but I think it was on TOMTOM website. You have to connect to TOMTOM home and reinstall the application. I put the TOMTOM disc in the computer (which came with purchase) and reinstalled the program. Which I thought was weird as everything appeard to be fine with TOMTOM home). Anyway, it worked. Good luck.
