You'll need a special 'torx' screwdriver to remove the screws to replace the battery. The battery and the torx screwdriver can be purchased together on eBay for less than $20.

Tom tom dont want to turn on

Did it overheat? or is just the battery dead?
If the LED, comes on, when you connect it to the power, even when the battery is bad, the tom-tom should start working, when you press the power button. Make sure it is getting power. If that does not work, perhaps you should replace the battery.

Hi; Is there a simple way I can fix the back light of my MX-500?

There is no "bulb" in the unit. The MX-500 provides power to an electroluminiscent strip that runs from the top to the bottom of the remote. When power is applied, the whole strip glows inside.

Sounds like your light switch is going bad. Not sure what the life of the EL panel is but the part number is A015-J1

Well I got to the battery, but still haven't figured out how to get it out. To get to where I got to first pop the front silver suround off then remove the 4 retaining screws and the body will come off, next cut the foil around the speaker and take out the 2 screws, you can then see the battery. Where to from here? please!!
