Battery indictes low and turns off

My GO910, battery indicates low and turns off, this is even when the green light on the front of the unit remains on.  These happens on both docking stations.  So unit is plugged into car socket, green light is on, unit will start up remain on for about 5-10 secs then battery indicator flashers and unit turns off. Green light on unit remains on???  What do you think?? Unit is 6 months old.

Re: Battery indictes low and turns off

I replaced the battery on my TomTom 910 and still no improvement so eventually sprayed the contacts with switch cleaner. Now, no problem. Probably didn't need to replace the battery.

If you unit is outside guarantee then this is worth trying. Might be as well to detach the battery and all other power supplies until the switch cleaner has dried.

Another possible problem is the rubber gromit which forces the contacts to make contact. You could replace this with a bit of rubber from a pencil.

Hope this helps you.

Charging indicator stays red the USB cable plugged in to a powered PC? Could be cable or battery issue. Red light means that the battery is very low on juice. Return it to where you got it from if you can't solve it on your own.

My mobile is dead

I just had this happen to me yesterday. I fought with my phone for about 3 hours removing the battery and trying to restart it. It would take about 5 minutes for it to finally boot and once it did the touch screen would not work. So I did a hard boot and within 5 minutes my phone was back to normal. I lost all my contacts but I just did a restore with the backup software. To do a hard boot hold down the red and green buttons on the front of the phone and push the reset button on the bottom of the phone with the stylus. The reset button is on the right side of the power/usb plug. As I said my phone was back to normal in just a few minutes.

Will not power up

Had same problem with my GO910 unit, after it was about 6 months old. Contacted TomTom and sent unit back. They said that they are aware of the problem. They sent me back a new GO 720 with 2008 maps as they said they could not fix the problem in the 910. and they were not importing anymore 910 into Australia.
