Hi, My Tomtom 910 has been sitting in the bottom draw for a month....I took it out yesterday to use it but no joy! I charged the Tomtom for 2hrs the green charge light was showing. I unplugged the unit from the mains, and switched it on...The Tomtom logo.(Black screen and the two Tomtom red hands appear.) For about 30 seconds then the screen goes to green with a picture of the satnav unit in the top left hand corner. I have tried resetting the unit but it just does the above....I have tried resetting the unti several times, and no joy? Any ideas. Thank you in advance...........AudiTT.

1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?
Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.
2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?
You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad
3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?
You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.
