Remove the rubber strips from the bottom of TT there are two screws each side.
The top of the unit will then come off easily.
Then you will see a cast iron casing the battery is buried deep in it.
To access battery remove the circular shaped circuit with two screws.
Then remove five screws around the main circuit board.
Then you will see the battery.
Then remove a sliver strip which holds the battery in place and the eject mechanism for the TT arm.
Now is the hard part the battery is wedged in so I took a large screwdriver and forced it out.
I did crack the casing a little but it was easy to knock it gently back into place.
Important when you put the battery back in you will have to apply a little pressure, then do not forget to place the eject button into the same pin hole that the sliver strip sits in.
Oh and connect battery.

Good luck
Jack

Just proceed like Jack000 through unscrewing all parts to see the battery. But then remove two black holders at each short side of the instrument and take out the screen. The battery can now be very easily removed without the need for any special equipment and without any risk for distorting the casing.
Good luck!

If its in warranty return it.

if it is out of warranty & you really need to atempt it yourself you will need a set of torx screwdrivers.

T8 gets the cover off

T6 for inside

& the battery is deep inside you may need to peel off several security stickers & bend a few metal tabs to release the old one but as long as you put it back in reverse you should be alright.

I have TomTom 910 in USA, (and I have one in the UK). Access to the battery is behind the front screen but the plug is under the circuit boards.

1) Remove 4 screws under ends of rubber strips on back. (All screws are Torx number 6)

2) Remove back cover. Front frame around screen comes off easier now.

3) Remove 2 screws in round top circuit board. Remove 4 screws from lower circuit board. These two boards may have a glue connection. Do not worry if it separates

4) Lay back circuit boards to unplug battery. Note flat ribbon cables are fragile. The 3 wire plug is the battery. Unplug wires to battery from receptacle on circuit board.

5) Remove front screen by pressing a screwdriver against the small metal tags that follow the edge of the screen. The tabs need to be pushed in slightly to allow you to lift the screen out. It may need some leverage, but be careful not to put the screwdriver to far behind the screen as there are a couple of thin cables for the connections.

6) To remove the hard drive you may need to unscrew the vertical black tags about 2 cm long. These simply come away and are grasping the business card size silver box IE the hard drive. The rubber end caps are pressed in, pry out with small screw driver.
7) Remove battery and replace. Note the two sided sticky tape around battery. When putting more tape on, be careful you do not put to much around the right hand end as it will connect with the thin cable when you put it all back together.

9) Reverse assembly. Mine works fine now, good luck. (and so does mine! BLP)
Footnotes: I did not have a Torx #6 screwdriver nor could I buy one locally. I found a #7 mini star bit works just fine. Source: Harbor Freight item # 93316, 6 piece Mini Star Bit Set - $3 PMVN - 9/19/2009
I am not advertising but Batteryship.com included with the battery #5 & #6 torx screwdrivers, a very small philips (star), a straight screwdriver and a plastic pry tool. Whatever I paid more than another place it was worth it.

When disassembling do not remove the battery clip. Just pop out the battery from the front (experienced having to reassemble that whole thing). Also having a set of tweezers to put the electrical connections back together helped a bunch.

To remove the battery easily you need to pop the screen out.
This is done by pushing in three tabs on one long side where it clips into the casing.
Try removing the screen before you take the rest of it apart you may find it can all be done from there, I'd already taken it apart before I realised what needed to be done.

I just replaced my battery. I ended up with two little rubber grommets and have know idea where they go. Once I got rolling it went back together fairly easily and worked perfectly. The battery came with a "star" driver, but I had already bought a small set at Home Depot. I'll keep the set I got, but didn't need to have made the purchase.

HI I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM, GREEN LIGhT ON BUT NOT SWITCHING ON.
I contacted tomtom and with in 2 weeks i have my original 910 back in full working order. AND I DIDN'T COST ME A PENNY.
My tomtom was an insurance replacement due to stupid little thieves, but i didn't have any form of a receipt. I contacted free and they went through the normal try resetting the device BUT HOLD DOWN THE RESET BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS NOT THE 15 THEY STATE IN THEIR HELP SECTION. Done that and it DID SWITCH ON only for a about 1 min due to the battery not holding its charge. So they sent me all the packaging to return it to them, did ask that i put proof of purchase in but couldn't so just wrote a quick not saying insurance replacement but checked when i activated my device on my computer it was july 2006 so expected to a repair fee thinking it only had 1 years warranty but if you brought after Jan 2005 it has a 2 year warranty. Received it back today full working order and the battery replaced. Worth contacting TOMTOM number is on www.tomtom.com/368
Hope this helps.

Can i get free map up dates for my tom tom go 910


You can get free shared updates from the users when you install the Tom Tom Home Software, but to update the map with the TomTom approved information, you will have to pay, unfortunately. So far, the people-uploaded maps have helped me immensely, though.

Stip down your tom tom unit, google for instructions and there is a set with pictures, But if not,
1, take the front screen surround off first, be gentle and prise it of with a flat screw driver, then unsrew the chassis from the plastic cover (4 x torx screws under the rubber feet)

2, unscrew the motherboards (torx again) and unclip the cable for the battery, and remore the eject mechanisum for the unit.

3 you may hadve to unscrew the harddrive and front screen if memory serves me well, but not to hard to do at all and my skills are basic but backed up by curiosity :o).

Blank screen but green light is on


I have had this on my 910, It turns out that the motherboard needs replacing and after looking on here its quite common.

Its quite esay to replace and perhaps worth changing the battery whilst your in there as well.

Google for instructions or flick through this site.
