    Same problem, even plugged into external power, no screen. Tried taking out SD card and reinstalling, still nothing. Tried holding power button down for awhile and releasing, still nothing. Any suggestions? Is there a reset button I don't know about?

There is a reset button (hole) underneath by the plug-in bar. It is real small, you'll need a small paper clip straighten out

MY TOMTOM GPS NEED TO BE TO RESET


Hello,

I will advice you reset the unit, this might help fix the abnormality with the white screen problem. follow these procedure to reset your tom tom gps.
Make sure your battery is charged before you begin. TomTom suggested allowing your device to charge for at least 2 hours before resetting it. Remove your device's SD card from the card slot.
Find the "Reset" pinhole button on the bottom of the device.
Hold the "Reset" button down for 10 to 15 seconds or until your device resets itself. You will need a flattened paperclip or another small metal object to reach inside the pinhole.
Power the TomTom back on and insert your SD Card. You have now reset your TomTom gps and this should fix the white screen problem.

Take care.

My Tom Tom 510 will not turn on at all. I plug in the power supply and the green light comes on. I used it yesterday and this morning, and all was fine, tried using it 1 hour ago to travel home and...


try to reset

The Reset hole is hard to find, you need to first remove it from the mount, turn it upside down, and within the mounting base area of GO you will see two interface slots (currently only one is being used) and towards the front of the unit on the base you will see a little hole marked reset. This is just like soft resetting a Palm or Pocket PC, it requires something small like a paperclip, and nothing was supplied with GO to enable you to easily reset the device.

Tom tom 1 will not switch on


Charge it through the computer using your USB cable for a good 2 hours and try switching it on again. It happened to me and it seemed to work fine after that.

MY TOM TOM WILL NOT TURN ON. THE GREEN LIGHT IS ON, AND IT'S CHARGED. WHERE CAN I GO TO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL, REPAIR IT FOR ME RIGHT AWAY? I'M GOING ON A TRIP IN 2 DAYS. THANK YOU. VINCENTCOGNATO@AOL.COM


I solved this problem by finding an answer on the Tom Tom website. Using a paper clip end insert it on the reset button and press for at least 10 seconds. The reset button is difficult to find; it's located close to the connector at the base of the unit. It is an annoying problem as it happens without any rhyme or reason. I now carry a paper clip in the car!

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.
