Do a soft reset by holding the power button down for 15 seconds. you may need to power off and on afterwards. this is what I did on mine and it works again just fine. I did loose all my stored info.

I had this problem. I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.

My tomtom did it for two days, and then I turned it on one morning, and it worked! I do not understand it, but keep trying to get it to work, hopefully yours will just start working again!

I'm having this same problem, have gone to the spinning disc and pressed it. All it does is move the numbers ( all zero's) for the lat. and long. It is tring to get a fix but nothing has happend this started last night when I was on a trip. I've even gone back to the factory setting and started set up from begining. Tomtom just says " Waiting for a valid GPS signal "....

On the bottom right hand side press the bars, next screen press the middle right hand sideellow the bars , then top right hand side is the orange and black disc spinning? yes then your unit is looking for a signal , if no then ask tom tom website for instructions,

I had the same problem when I bought it. I fixed it.
The problem is the person that is using it. Just make sure the GPS is charged, and make sure it gets updated/upgraded every week for for free at tomtom home, so that it could track satellite movements. Is written on the manual and at tomtom home.
