Re: blank screen

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.

If its NEW take it back!

contact tomtom about the problem...

Xl 330s will not locate/display maps, just a blank screen saying "no maps found"

suspect that your maps file is corruped or lost. this may have occured due to a drop or other inteference such as high magnetic field or eletromagnetic interference.
if you connect your tomtom to your pc you can view inside to see if the maps are in the device. if they are not then you may have to redownload them from any map software you had or from the TOMTOM website using tomtom home.

Blinking white blank display after turning on

Try resetting your tomtom by inserting a paper clip through the reset hole found underneath. One quick press is all thats needed. Charge the tomtom first now and then switch on after its had a good charge.
If this doesnt work , please reply again and i'll try and help further.

Good luck

Screen display

I guess you have the same problem I did.... I have a TomTom One 3rd Ed., and after updating it through TomTom Home, every time I turned it on, I got a blank white screen. I would have to reset it every time before I could get it to work right. If this is the same problem...go here to download the fix.
