    Was working fine until I shut if down. When trying to turn back on only got a blank screen with green light on. Tried to reset several times to no avail.

    Tom Tom is less than one month old. Was working fine until one day (no unusual circumstances) I tried to switch it on only to find the screen went white but did no more. Can occasionally, seemingly at random, get it to switch on, but the screen now flickers or has horizontal lines partially obscuring the picture top and bottom.

If it doesn't turn on after a hard reset and disconnecting the battery you may have a logic board issue (also check if the DC-Jack is loose). In both cases there are <a rel='nofollow' href=http://www.portatronics.com>TomTom Repair</a>

Does the battery come off. If so take it off wait a few minute re -install and try again to restart.

Tip

TomTom GPS battery discharge when off


With the TomTom GPS units, if you use it infrequently, you may often find the unit has a dead battery when you go to use it.
This is because turning the Tom Tom off normally with the power button doesn't actually turn it off fully, but instead puts it in a standby mode.
Even though the screen is off and it appears to be shut down, it's still using some power to maintain configuration settings.

If you know you won't be using it for a long period of time, you can press the reset button on the bottom of the unit (this can be done while it's off), and it should put it in shutdown mode, where the battery will not be drained so rapidly. If you do this, you can confirm it's in the shutdown mode by tapping the on button. This normally will power up the Tom Tom, but in the shutdown mode, it will not do anything. To wake it up from the shutdown mode, press and hold the power button for a few seconds, at which point it should turn on and greet you with the Tom Tom drums. It takes quite a while to boot up from this mode, which is probably why they defaulted to the suspend mode instead of a true "OFF" state.

For some of the newer units, they've omitted the reset button, so the process is a little different. Instead of pressing the reset button, do the following:
with the unit on, press and hold the power button. The shutdown screen should appear, but continue holding down the power button for another 12 seconds after the screen turns off. Timing is a bit touchy, because if you hold it too long, it'll end up just rebooting, and then you'll have to try again.
If you're successful in the shutdown, you can test it by briefly pressing the power button. It shouldn't turn back on with just a short press. If it comes on with the tap on the power button, you'll have to try again.

This whole process is a bit of a hassle, and extends the turn on time greatly, so you'll want to plan ahead when doing this, and just shut off normally if you expect you'll be using it within a couple days. However, the long boot up is preferable to having a completely dead unit when you need it, especially if you're away from a power plug...

Can you tell me where is the reset button on tom tom 1 IQ


I'm a little confused about which unit you have, but the answer is simple enough..... If there isn't a small hole on the bottom of the GPS, then simply hold the on/off button for approximately 15 seconds -- until the unit restarts. The small "hole" that I'm referring to will be in the same vicinity as the connector that the cable plugs into. It should say reset right by it, if the reset button is there. If you do have a reset button on the bottom of the device, you'll need to use something to press the button. A paper clip straightened out a bit works perfectly.

The following lists are from Tom Tom's website. I hope this helps:

My Tom Tom one xl iq routes has frozen on the continue screen how can I fix it ?


What you need to do is to reset your unit. To reset your device, First check that the battery is properly charged. Allow the tom tom charge for about 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

Reset your device by using a straightened paper clip or something similar to push the reset button for about 15 seconds.

Then you turn on your device by pressing and holding the power button for about 15 seconds. The picture of where the reset button is on your device is shown below.

You dont specify "all the usual" things you have tried. Have you tried taking out the simcard if you have one and then pressing the reset button? Replace the sim and fire up the tom tom. Works for me.

I can not turn on my 530 and it dos not show that the battery is being charged on the screen


Yes, there is a way to reset it. You can try the reset button under the faceplate, or a Master Reset. Keep in mind, a Master Reset WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. In order to do a Master Reset the unit must be off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen, then press the on button. Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Follow the prompts. To use the reset button, you must remove the faceplate carefully (put your fingernail or another object in the indentation on the top of the faceplate, and pull it toward you). Then press the reset button on the right hand side of the unit.
