    how do I continue to communicate when you ask another question about my original fault

  • aajlrrecruit Mar 10, 2008

    I do not know what the light is supposed to do. It is on all the time it is plugged into the charger, it does not flash ,flicker or extinguish, it has been on for about 6 hours now.

    My Magellan Roadmate 700 starts up beautifully, but after a few minutes, the backlight goes out. I can still make out the map, but I have to shine a light on it to read it. Any ideas?

After attempting to update my tomtom910 I have not been able to get beyond starting up and it switching itself off after a couple of mins when fully charged


If you updated the operating system, and you are having this problem then something went wrong with the update. Hope you made a backup before you updated. If you did not, connect your 910 to the pc and then go to "My Computer" and open the drive for your 910. Delete "ttsystem". Now open TomTom Home and let TomTom Home install the operating system for your 910.

Tomtom910 won't turn on. I replaced the battery, charged it and now it won't turn on.


Try doing a reset. The reset hole is on the bottom of the TT 910. Use a paperclip to do the reset. Gently push the paperclip into the hole until you feel a click the hold it for 30 seconds. That should do the trick, unless the unit is not actually charging. The green light will come on but not charge because of a bad connection on the motherboard on the negative side.

Switch not turn off


Yes, I can help you. Just turn it over and look inside where it plugs in. Next to the little gold tips you will see a VERY tiny hole. You have to stick something like a paper clip in that hole & push. This will do a soft reset. You will not lose any information, it will just soft reset. Sometimes you have to do this is you forget to turn it off before disconnecting from PC ect. Good luck. If this helps you plz rate it. Thank you kindly.

You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.
