Will not stay on

Hi, my TomTom 700 will not work after a soft or hard reset. I can't power it up to run down & recalibrate the battery either.

Any thoughts??

Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.
contact them about the problem...

Can I get a GPS signal in Malta? I have a Tom Tom 700


Route will not plan until the GPS is locked.
Soft reset on the button underneath for 30 seconds will reset the GPS receiver on a 700.
Then wait upto 4 minutes for a refreshed lock after power up

How to remove align screen


Hi..
Problem can com from your touchscreen panel.
you need to replace it manually. only then this will be solved.

or you can try with soft reset or hard reset.
please find explanation at below :

i-Mate JAQ3 soft reset
Resetting Your Pocket PC Phone

Occasionally you may need to reset your Pocket PC Phone. A normal
(or soft) reset of your device clears all active program memory and
shuts down all active programs. This can be useful when the device is
running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly.
A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs.
If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work
will be lost.

You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard
reset should be performed only if a normal reset does not solve a
system problem. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its default
settings - the way it was when you first purchased it. Any programs
you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on the
device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other preinstalled
programs will remain.

To perform a soft reset

Remove the battery cover and using the stylus, press on the small
button to the left of the battery. Otherwise simply remove the battery,
wait a few seconds and then insert the battery again.
To perform a Hard Reset

Hard reset by pressing device buttons:

1. Turn off your device.
2. Hold down the Send button, End button and Camera button.
3. Do not release Send, End and Camera, press the Power button.
4. After on-screen indication, release all the buttons.

I turn on my tom tom go 700 and the screen appears with a picture of the tom tom in a green box and then it stops and i wont turn of


If your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is frozen, won’t turn on or does not behave as it should, it can be fixed by resetting or restarting your TomTom device.
A reset will not delete any data from your device, with the exception of SMS messages on TomTom GO500/700.
  1. Connect your GO/ONE/RIDER to the power charger. If you have a power charger, use it to power your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER. If you do not have a power charger, make sure that the battery in your TomTom GO/ONE is fully charged.
    Note: You need to charge your GO/ONE for at least 2 hours using the 12-24V cigarette lighter adapter.
  2. Reset your GO/ONE/RIDER. To reset the unit, you simply have to push a straightened paper clip (or something similar) into the RESET hole on the device.
    • On TomTom GO 910/710/510, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device.

    • On TomTom GO 700/500/300, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device with the word RESET right next to it.

    • On TomTom ONE, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device, with the word RESET right next to it (just below the SD card slot).

    • On TomTom RIDER, the RESET hole is on the bottom of the device, behind the SD card door. When opening the SD card door you will see the RESET hole on the left, right underneath the SD card slot.

  3. Your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is now reset. Finally, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds.

My tomtom to go will not turn on. the green light is on when charging but nothing shows on the screen. i dont know what to do?


If you have an SD card in try removing that before you power up.

You may also want to try the hard reset.
Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.

Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release
You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this.

Clearing my tom tom 700 of recent destination and phone numbers


Perform a hard reset. That should delete every last bit of info you have saved on your tomtom. To do this press and hold the power and reset buttons for about 5 seconds.

Sai.

Garmin has no power.


The first thing to do is make sure it is charged and the charger is working. Make sure you have green light on the ON button.

If it is on, but only displays the Palm logo, and you can't turn it off, it is likely that you need to do either a soft or hard reboot. These are described on page 1.6 of the manual, which can be downloaded from the Garmin site. If you don't have the manual:

Soft Reset-unscrew the blunt end of the stylus and insert the skiiny tip into the reset hold at the botttom left of the rear of the unit.

If this doesn't work, do a hard reset by pressing the soft reset buttom and then immediately holding the On button down until the Palm Logo comes up. I've only had to do this once in all the years I've had the unit. You need to resync to get the voice navigation and other features to work.

Tomtom 700 in a standby mode


Hi Juanin, just posted this for a near identical problem with a Tomtom 700; When you get this kind of problem with a Tomtom device always start with the memory card, so: 1: remove the card, clean the contacts and if you have an air duster (available from any good hardware store/electronics store) clean the card slot, then reinsert it. 2: make sure the card is readable on your PC to ensure it doesn't have a problem. if this doesn't help then 3: format the card and reinstall the maps & software on to it. 4: make sure the card is reinserted correctly. Next is the battery, leave the device switched on until the battery runs out, switch it on again and it should stay on for a moment then switch its self back off, repeat this until it will not switch on anymore and then charge it for at-least 16 hours before trying it again, this will re-calibrate the battery. Diagnosing a problem is a process and this is just the start of it, don't be disheartened if this doesn't help, just message back with the results.
