The most common problem to this is because the TomTom doesn't know it's current location. It may be that you last used your device a long distance from where you currently are now. I don't know how long you waited for the gps signal to acquire but it can take up to 10 minutes (even on military aircraft if they don't know current location).
Power it up and press on the signal strength icon. That will bring up your satellite tracking status. If it don't look like it's doing anything, then your gps has probably malfunctioned. If it looks like it's acquiring satellites, then give it a good amount of time (10-15 minutes) to see if it can find your location. I recommend doing it outside of your vehicle with no satellite obstructions to make the process go faster.

I have a 720 but I suspect it will be the same or similar.
Tap the screen and then Change Preferences. Use the forward arrow to scroll to the relevant page (5 on mine) where you will find Set Units. Tap this and then change whatever units you wish.

follow the directions below and look for the icon of the flags...tap main map screen then preferences (little wrench icon) then use the arrow on the bottom right to page to the language icon...i think its the fourth page ...then select the language you want.
Follow the instructions on the screen to confirm your language selection and choose a voice.

If you where having difficulty with the on/off button, it sounds like the microswitch under the plastic. Unless you can do micro soldering you can not fix this yourself. You should get a quote from tomtom.
