Green light on but will not switch on

plug in your xl via the usb cable to your computer and let it charge a few hours, then press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds.

do not use the car or home charger to intially charge your xl. they are to maintain the battery, not a rapid charge.

let me know if you need further help.

I've fixed quite a few of these units with this problem. I can diagnose for free (just return postage) and fix for a nominal fee (if fixable)

Where is This product code on tomtom XL

I assume you mean the device ID code. Start your tt and go to the map screen, if it isn't already displayed. Tap the bottom right hand corner where the GPS signal meter is. On the next screen tap the version number. The next screen that comes up will have your device ID code, among other things.

No power-up

See if this helps-
Unplug the power adapter. Remove the battery. Plug in the power adapter. Attempt to power up.
If that doesn't work-
Power down. Remove the hard drive and CD drive, also floppy drive if you have one. Disconnect the cables to any external devices that you might have attached. Remove all of the memory cards. Replace 1 memory card in the main slot,only. This will reseat the memory card. Power back up and see if the system comes up to a BIOS screen. If not, and you have more than 1 memory card, try swapping to the other memory card. If BIOS comes up, start reinstalling each item (Hard drive first) one at a time, attempting to bring the system up after each item is installed. If the BIOS screen doesn't come up with everything disconnected, you'll need to disconnect the LCD screen (internally) and hook up an external screen. If BIOS shows up on the external monitor at this time, you have a bad LCD screen.
If nothing in this process seems to work, you probably have a bad mother board.
If you have any questions, please ask.
