My TomTom turns on when connected to a computer only
It stopped working in the car. I can't even get a logo. It's not a power failure because I can make it light up on the computer but I haven't been able to do much else but look at the welcome screen.
It's probably just over a year old now.

You may want to try resetting the phone by holding the home and power button simultaneously until the phone shuts down and the apple logo appears. If that doesn't help, connect it to your computer and do a restore using iTunes.
Wich fuse for the radio system would you like to replace? There are 6 of them. Your integrated control panel (dash unit) is controlled by the rear electronic module. This is all part of the multiplexed computer network in your car. I would recommend BEGINNING diagnosis of your radio by scanning your computer network for fault codes, then go from there...
Even if there is a blown fuse, this is an indication that there is an electrical failure which must be diagnosed and repaired. Blown fuses do not cause electrical component failures. Electrical component failures cause blown fuses. Replacing a blown fuse without diagnosing and correcting the fault that made it blow will only result in another blown fuse.
First you need to reset the tom tom by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds, it will restart itself, from there it should get passed the tom tom logo.
If it does not do the job, then you need to connect your gps to a computer, then back up the files then you restore the files back on it after formating the gps.
it may wel get power light on but if the battery has collapsed then it will take forever to accrue a minor amount of charge. USE the AC adaptor to charge it and see if whilst it is connected ( after hour) that you can turn it on and get a display. You could also get a new battery for it if it does respond. failure could indicate that battery acid has leaked and done damage, even Lion batteries break down
turn device over and look for tiny reset button near to power connect strip. then use a blunt safety pin to reset,this should allow you to then turn it on,this works on 500 ,700 ,900 , 510 , 710 , 910 , hope this helps .
Make sure you download the lates Home software - probably availalble at www.tomtom.com
After you say yes to conect to the computer and the screen goes black - jut re-press the on button on the GPS while it is still connected to the computer - it will then work. I also try to open the GPS as an external drive which forces the identification of files while TomTom home is working.
