Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My TomTom go 910 will turn on and go to the "green" screen, but will not go any further. I have held down the reset and the off/on switch for 5-10 seconds, recharged for 12 hours, repeated, and do not get past the "green" screen.

    That tells me very little. I have not uploaded any photos, music, or updates in over 1 year. I was using it in the car this morning. Turned it off, put it up in its storage holder. When I came back about 2 hours later, I put it back on its docking unit in the car and the prblem began. Does the data become corrupted while the unit is just setting in "off" mode?

    This helps me very little. I used the unit in my car this morning. I turned it off, put it in its carrier and came inside; when I went back to the car with the unit about 2 hours later, I placed on the docking station in the car, turned it on and it has been on frozen screen each time I attempt to power up. Does the data become corrupt while its just setting in "off" mode?

Your data is possibly corrupted

    There are numerous reasons for data becomming corrupted, I could say even by giving it a dirty look! but that would also not be helpful. I repair GPS units and 78% are caused by situations unknown.
    a simple spike fromj the power outlet can have the GPS working when you arrive hoime and when put back into service fails to tuen on or cannot access the data. If you have the original disk to the maps i suggest you try a reinstall to rectify the failed load.
    Yopu copuld try and find the reset hole and while holding down the ON button push the reset and try to get the unit to reiunitiualize, but beyond that its the reapir of the data

Hi my tomtom 910 go wont switch on ], but when useing the charger the little green light lights up and will stil not switch on ive tries the hard resetting and does not work


I've had a similar problem on 2 TomTom 910s.
First, try holding in the reset button while holding the power switch down for 5 seconds.

If that doesn't work, let it charge for 12 hours and while it's still charging, hold the power switch down for 5 seconds.

It worked for me on both

Good luck

Tomtom 730 doesn't switch on!


Hopefully all you need to do is a soft reset. To do this use a streightened paper clip and insert it into the small round hole marked reset on the bottom of your tt. Gently press the reset button in until you feel a click. Hold the reset button in for 20 seconds. Hope this does the job.

My tomtom go 910 will not switch on it has the green light on at the top left when plugged into a charger but nothing turns on when pressing button for 2 seconds any ideas??


In general I find these sort of problems can be fixed by the below

If the Tomtom loses battery power it might cease to function with a blank screen but will show a green light when you charge it. The trick is charge it on the mains charger for at least two hours. Then reset the device with a paper clip. If you get no reponse hold down the on button for at least 20 secs and the device will show the Tomtom logo and play a drum roll and startup normally.

I have seen the green screen problem a few times before and this was caused by corrupted data / software or an error in booting up.
If you can't turn any TomTom off then perform a reset by inserting a paper clip into the rest hole and give 1 short press of the reset button ( it's a tactile switch so you should feel it click ) then try switching the TomTom on again the normal way. ( reset buttons are normally found through a small hole underneath the TomTom ).
If the TomTom does switch on but continues as before with the loading up problem , then it's best to format and reload all files from your backup copy.
A RED CROSS indicated a loading fault / corrupted files / incomplete files / corrupted or damaged media . ( media , meaning SD card or hard-drive )
