Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver
Hi, i have a tomtom 910. when conected to mains the charging light comes on. i haven't used it in a couple of months so connected it to mains and switched it on. i made some deletions to favourites and switcehd maps to us and added a favourite then switched maps back to europe. I switched the power off, so have not really charged it uo. A couple of days later i've tried to switch it on (using mains) and nothing happens, but the charging light comes on? any ideas? i've left it charging overnight but althought the green charge light comes on, i cannot get it to power up?
Got to the following link to find the reset button and see if a reset resolve your problem.

I had the problem of not charging and not switching on but green light working fine.I replaced the battery with no improvement but after solderering the contacts which were slightly tarnished, my 910 is now fully working and now have spare battery too.

Have had the same problem on my GO 910, spoke to tomtom today and was told that there should be 3 rubber feet on the 910, 2 long ones and a "grommet" type foot at the top. This was missing on mine so the tomtom wasn't seating correctly to charge up. might be worth having a look to see if your grommet is missing

HI I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM, GREEN LIGhT ON BUT NOT SWITCHING ON.
I contacted tomtom and with in 2 weeks i have my original 910 back in full working order. AND I DIDN'T COST ME A PENNY.
My tomtom was an insurance replacement due to stupid little thieves, but i didn't have any form of a receipt. I contacted free and they went through the normal try resetting the device BUT HOLD DOWN THE RESET BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS NOT THE 15 THEY STATE IN THEIR HELP SECTION. Done that and it DID SWITCH ON only for a about 1 min due to the battery not holding its charge. So they sent me all the packaging to return it to them, did ask that i put proof of purchase in but couldn't so just wrote a quick not saying insurance replacement but checked when i activated my device on my computer it was july 2006 so expected to a repair fee thinking it only had 1 years warranty but if you brought after Jan 2005 it has a 2 year warranty. Received it back today full working order and the battery replaced. Worth contacting TOMTOM number is on www.tomtom.com/368
Hope this helps. Gary

Mine is a 510 GO and was unable to start it up, however, resetting the device has cured it, thought it as a case of a new one.
PS make sure you hold the reset in for at least 30 seconds

Fantastic solution, cured my problem with the unit not powering up via pc or in car charger.
Spent ages trying to find the reset button so the link was a great help.
Lesson learnt .... don't let the battery drain right down!!
Thanks for the great advise.
