Boken screens are a common problem, look into repairing it yourself, by purchasing another TomTom and swaping components, or disscuss with the seller. You might get lucky and save £££. Even its not repairable, the case, the screen , the battery and software +maps on the SD card, located at the bottom of the device, are still worth somthing to someone, somewhere on ebay
Your best bet is to purchase a non working unit from ebay with a good screen (ask if the unit has a good screen before bidding). I do this all the time. A new screen depending on your model will usually cost more than buying a new unit. Goggle changing the LCD screen on your model to learn how it is done. The tools you will need are not expensive. For most models you will need a # 8 and # 6 torx bit and a guitar pic to open the case.
Hope this helps
If the LCD backlight is gone theres no choice but to replace the whole screen ( OR it could be the LCD lamp driver circuit on the circuit board ) . It's not economical to purchase a new screen but it is possible to purchase a defunct 910 , typicaly off ebay and use the screen from it . ( ensure you are buying a tomtom with a good intact screen ) . Changing the screen is tricky and fiddly but someone with general electronics knowledge should'nt find it difficult. You also need the special "star" drivers for the screws ( sometimes known as ' torxs ' ). If you are inexperienced with this sort of work then its best not to attempt it. There are companies advertising that can do this type of work for you and especialy in UK......... Good luck.

I opened mine and discovered the screen is made by Samsung and is used in a variety of products. I'm trying to find a supplier in the US who will sell me just the screen. Appears readily available in the UK but taxes/shipping/exchange makes the purchase to costly.
Here are the Samsung Part numbers off the screen:
