TomTom GO 910 won't turn on.

Two possibilities:
- if someone has used the wrong charger, and connected it to a 12V supply, the mainboard may be damaged. In that case, you need a replacement.
- the battery may be discharged. Even if the green light is on, it doesn't necessarily charge up. Try pushing it hard onto the mount for a few minutes, then see if it will turn on.

My TomTom Go 910 will sometimes not turn on, sometimes hangs on the black TomTom screen and will not turn off, a hard reset will get it going again. It also keeps turning itself on when I'm driving. I...

the battery won't charge and can't supply enough
power for harddrive to rotate and it shutdown by itself.

Tomtom not turning on

It sounds like the dreaded green light of death. The TomTom car chargers for this model and older had a inherit problem with sending more than the requaired amount of power to the TomTom 3rd edition and older models. When the extra power is supplied a diode in the TomTom burns out, but the green power light will come on.

I have not used my tomtom for a few months , an when attempting to use it today , it was dead . nothing at all help tomtom xl

connect it to a power supply and leave it for a few hours A battery that is totally depleted will take some time to recover and not show that it is even being charged as power is too low to light the LED.

It will require a full charge of about 10 hours to get it fully back into service. But the LED will ( or should turn on) after about 1-2 hrs depending on the condition of the battery. If after the charge the battery does not hold a charge lasting on average about 2 hrs , then change the battery.

hook it to your usb cable to your for a few hours and then try and start it. first with the power button, it that fails try the hard reset..if neither those work, download tomtom home. follow the directions and tomtom home should be able to repair it unless you have internal problems, like a bad usb port on the gps. bill

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

HW6515d Ipaq Sound with TomTom Sat NAv

The ipaq 6515 has a microswitch that will turn off the pda if the battery cover is removed. When you remove the cover and try to turn it on even with the external power supply plugged in, the red led will light up.
