If you have no screen on, then i think you might need to replace the unit and hopefully it is still under warranty. But if not try this, turn the unit on and look very closely at the screen, change the angles and see if you can see a very faint image, if you can, then the unit is working but the backlight display is not working. If it is the backlight display it could be caused by something as simple as a loose connection, or it could need replacement. Hope this helps
Hi happyivan8 i know tomtoms answer to this problem is to plug it in to the computer for a few hours but thats not really a fix, just an added pain in the rear.
i have 2 of these and one worked good after i updated it but the other still has the same problem and will only start after i charge it via the usb cable or unplug and plug the battery back in.
try updating it through tomtom home but it may or mayneo solve the problem. if you have already tried the update and that didnt help, i dont know what else you can do other then use it for target practice like im going to.
you can get tomtom home HERE if you dont have it already!
I've wired my tom tom for use on a motor bike. you CANT run 12v straight into the tomtom, you can see on the cig lighter plug it has a 5v output. So I bought cheap lighter socket, it looks like plastic tube with the cable running out of the back. So the wires run from the battery (via an in line fuse) to the cig adaptors, these are hidden in my side luggage bag to keep dry and up to the tomtom. job done
If you plug your Tom Tom into your home computer, you should be able to tell if it's going to turn on. It will charge, plugged in to your computer. If it works that way, you can suspect your lighter/utility plu in the vehicle.
Either faulty / corrupted files on the hard drive or a faulty hard drive ( not uncommon ) is causing this problem. Effectivley causing the TomTom to lock up as it cannot procede . In order for a tomtom to turn off normally , it needs to have fully loaded up normally. Your tomtom isn't loading up properly , hence the problem. If you have a backup of the tomtom hard drive ? ( I hope you backed up the files to your PC ) then you can try formatting the tomtom hard drive and copying the files back to it from your PC .
