Had mine open just yesterday to see how difficult it would be to replace the battery, so I had the same experience reconnecting the ribbon. You first need to make sure that the little gray release tabs at either end of the connector are in the up position, then , where the ribbon is creased, you need to straighten it slightly. This will allow you to stand the screen up a bit straighter and make access to the connector easier. The end of the ribbon gets inserted on the top side of the little gray strip that you see running the width if the connector.with the ribbon inserted you then need to carefully push the little gray tabs back down into the locked position (flat with the top of the connector). Make sure the ribbon is straight and fully inserted, and don't forget to plug the speaker connector back in. try searching TomTom replacement battery on line and you should find excellent directions & photos on the entire procedure. Good luck.

Hi, i have just been given a tom tom 720 which isn't working. I suspect it has got a serious problem but would be grateful for any comments which you have about the problem.When turning on the tom tom it...


You could try gently inserting a straightened paper clip into the small round reset hole in the base of the Go720 and pressing/holding slightly on the reset button for c.6 secs. This should reset most basic problems.

Do you have the TomTom Home software that was supplied with the TomTom machines - if you open that on your PC and then attach your TomTom via the supplied cradle or USB lead it should provide a screen asking you if you want to connect to PC. If it boots straight past this you would normally reset it, as above, then restart and accept the question. This should then check the software on the device for updates etc.

Otherwise if no screen display it could just have been dropped and damaged, might be worth opening up to check if the backlight has been broken, though I'm not sure you can get spares (certainly not from TomTom). There is a firm at www.satnavrepairservice.com who will quote you for repairs that need parts.

Hi the USB plug at the end gets loose inside and goes bad. Target sells a direct replacement for it.

If you can't find it in their electronics department look in the automotive section. I believe it cost around $17
