    Unfortinatly, it is out of warranty. I do have mulimeter and other soldering iron at home. Where can I find instructions to test and change the diode, if required.

    Do you think it could be the battry only? Would it start on cardle if battery fails??

    Unfortunatly, it does not power on even when its in cardle. The only change I see is the green light, no beep or anything else. I try to hard reset did not work.

Does the unit power up when you have it in the car cradle or the usb cradle (hooked up to computer)? If so, it is the same problem I just fixed with mine, DEAD BATTERY. It will need replaced. I got a new one online for $25, but you can also find brand new ones on EBAY for about $15 with free shipping. Then just go to to look at instructions on replacing the battery.

    There is a Diode in Tom Tom in the Unit in the Power Slot on the Unit if it fails ,this will stop a Tom Tom Cold its a 20 cent Diode but it will acts like a Fuse if it's still under Warrenty send it back so they can Fix it. if you have the right test Equipment You can do it Yourself but if they can't fix it when you send it back they will send you a brand NEW one .

  • grndcontrol Jul 28, 2009

    No it won't start in the cadle if the batteryu is low and usualy if the battery is low you will get a small audable beep that tell you the battery is low or just a green screen with the tom tom logo for about 5 seconds then it will shut off the fact that there is no aduable and it never comes on makes me think it is the Diode you can call the tech department at tom tom and see if they will send you a diagram of the unit or go thru a search engine to see if you can locate one .

Tomtom GO 910 GPS stopped working

Mine is about three weeks old and just did the same thing. I ahd been using it while walking in a town in Germany. So I did not even have power/docking or PC problems.

I reset the unit with a paper clip. Look in the mounting opening at the lower rear of the 910, there is a small cut out. press this carefully, mine is now back to life and did not even lose my 'recent' list.
