Hi, I just received a TomTom One for Christmas and when I turn it on there's a blank screen. If I press the reset button, all is well. Why should I have to press the reset button each time? What am I doing wrong?

Reset your TomTom GPS receiver. Some TomTom users report occasional difficulty in getting their TomTom navigation device to start or respond to commands. If this happens to you, remedy the problem by performing a soft reset on your TomTom GPS. A soft reset will reset the data on your TomTom GPS receiver without erasing any data. To reset a TomTom GPS receiver, press and hold the "On/Off" button for 15 seconds or until the device restarts. 2
Let your TomTom GPS acquire the necessary satellite signals outside. If the device has trouble connecting to the satellite signals necessary for its operation, try an easy fix to the problem. Take your TomTom GPS receiver outside, away from mountains, tall buildings or heavy foliage, where the receiver has a clear view of the sky. Wait for a few moments while the device acquires the necessary satellite signals.

Try to restore the firmware first. If that fails, there may be a motherboard issue. There is a third party tomtom Repair service that will replace the logic board and a tomtom repair guide if you want to replace it yourself, the screen is available on ebay.
There is a small hole on the tomtom device base. Inside it there is a reset button.
Press it and turn device on.
Try to turn it on while connected to the electricity, if it is a battery problem it should work
If it doesn't work I suggest you to bring it to a tomtom support center.
If that does not work use the hard reset underneath the tom tom with a paper-clip to re-set your device. press the reset whilst switching on the TOMTOM but don't press too hard and let go once you see the screen coming on.
To only way you can fix it is taking apart the Tom Tom, checking if the flat ribbon cable and connector to the screen are well in place and eventually replace the display ($80 on Ebay). Unfortunately this will invalidate the guaranty, and you risk to damage your GPS if you are not a really experienced DIYer. Tom Tom offer one year full guaranty on all their receivers.
