Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver
When I plug the unit in, the charge light comes on but the unit will not turn on.
If you have previously used the reset button ( or maybe even if you have never used it ) , make sure the little rubber cap that covers the button is allowing the reset button to spring back up. my reset button was being constantly held down, and quite possibly was causing an intermittant reset press during driving. take a flashlight and check before sending it back/in for repair. when depressing the reset you should feel a very small click, if you don't feel it, then your button is stuck- use a needle to move/remove the rubber cap and allow the button to return to its unpressed state. hope this helps somebody out there...
