    I need more detailed instructions. When I received this unit I simply started using it. I never installed an SD card, and don't know how to go about removing or replacing it . I assume thatIi remove the back of the unit and there it is. Secondly, how do I "reset" the unit? The manual that came with the unit covers none of these points. Please expound on your instructions, including where the SD card is and what it looks like.

Try the following:
1. Switch the unit off
2. Take the SD card out
3. Reset the unit
4. Pop the card back
5. Switch the unit on - when the hand logo show, you should hear the tomtom logo sound.

If there is no sound try resetting to factory setting from menu, and restart again the TomTom.
If still no luck, call TomTom at the number listed on documentation. This is a common factory defect on Tom Tom. They will ask you to do a reset while you are at the phone, and if that is unsuccessful they will replace the TomTom within two years warranty.

    Don't worry about memory card, if the issue is the sound it does not matter.
    To eject the card you push it in and it will come out. But leave the card.
    Here is the slot, position may vary depending on the model:

    To reset the TomTom hold down the power button for about 10 seconds, until the unit restarts. You should hear a sound when the TomTom is starting.

    If you do not hear it, then the TomTom is probably faulty.

    Before calling TomTom you can try reinstalling system. You will lose any data stored on TomTom.

    Click here and follow instructions.

    On page click where it says:
    Part 1: Remove the current application
    Part 2: Reinstall the TomTom Application

    If the unit is new, call TomTom, they will replace within warranty time.

    Let me know if you have more questions, and please do not forget the feedback after.

No sound on one xl

Press and hold down the reset button for 10 seconds.
Now power up the unit and you should get a 'drums' sound.
If not the speakers needs replacing. If drums are good and still no directions then the software needs sorting.

Korg Microkorg XL Vocoder Not Working (No Sound)

Check the mic and connections all through its input into the unit. I would check the cartridge of the mic for continuity for the reason that (I think but not 100% sure) on this model, I think there has to be sound at the mic or it does go silent in vocode mode. This is how it digitizes the mic and keys together. The played keys cannot put onto pitch the sound it is NOT picking up at the mic. I think there is a problem with the mic.

My starter on my 2002 Suzuki XL 7 died today in my garage. At first I thought it was my battery...battery is fine. I was told it sounds like my starter since there is not juice or sound when I turn the key...

The first thing is to make sure the battery terminals and connectors are clean and free of corrosion so the starter can getr enough power to operate. To find your starter follow the large red wire that goes to the bottom side area of the engine. It will be held on by two bolts.
