    Same as other descriptions, green light is on indicating unit receiving power, however will not boot up and is dead. Reset does nothing.

Tomtom 510 unable to turn on.


Jun 11, 2009- Like I said before,we tried to power it up,even with the power supply hooked up, didn't start.I searched your site and found this. It worked. I pluged the charger in for power, green light on now,hold down the right hand lower corner of the screen (the screen itself) and while holding the corner down then hold down the ON button.The person who submitted this also said that it would reset the tomtom to the original setup that it was delievered with. We lucked out, our data was still there and working. By the way our battery was way way down. I wish I remembered the person who gave this solution, because he really deserves a BIG THANK YOU, and your site also THANKS. We would of throwed the thing away.How many were throwned away? THANKS BOB

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.

There is a reset button (hole) underneath by the plug-in bar. It is real small, you'll need a small paper clip straighten out

TOMTOM 510 not reading SD card


I did find out how to solve the problem. I can't remember exactly where I found the solution but I think it was on TOMTOM website. You have to connect to TOMTOM home and reinstall the application. I put the TOMTOM disc in the computer (which came with purchase) and reinstalled the program. Which I thought was weird as everything appeard to be fine with TOMTOM home). Anyway, it worked. Good luck.

Screen not working-Power light on


Possible back light failure. don't know about 'repair for this sort of thing Mu guess is like other small electronics of this type they are made as integrated 'lumps' and there is not a repair option. Try the Tech support at the TT website Especially if it is fairly recent. May be a replacement option

Is there a reset button? See this from PocketGPSworld.com: Reset hole The Reset hole is hard to find, you need to first remove it from the mount, turn it upside down, and within the mounting base area of GO you will see two interface slots (currently only one is being used) and towards the front of the unit on the base you will see a little hole marked reset. This is just like soft resetting a Palm or Pocket PC, it requires something small like a paperclip, and nothing was supplied with GO to enable you to easily reset the device.
