First off how long have you owned the unit? It sounds like you have already tried basic troubleshooting. If it is less then 12 months the unit is under warranty and you should contact them and have the unit repaired/replaced. Here is their contact info:

The red X means the unit can't detect the operating system files. If the card with them on it is corrupt, that might do it.
Do you have a backup of your unit's contents? Hopefully Explorer and especially the map folder.
If your device only shows a cross after you turn it on, the TomTom application is not installed or cannot be found.
To solve this, follow the steps below.
Manually remove the TomTom application:
Reset your device.
Connect your device to your computer.
Turn on your device by pressing the power button for 5 seconds.
Do one of the following:
Windows: Click Start > My Computer and then double-click the Removable Disk for your TomTom device.
Macintosh: Double-click the desktop icon for your TomTom device.
Delete all files except the following:
Do not delete any of the folders!
Do not delete the files antitheftw.bmp, lowbatteryw.bmp and splashw.bmp (if present)!

Reinstall the TomTom application:
Start TomTom HOME
Select an option:
I previously updated my device on this computer
I never updated my device on this computer
Click Done and then click Device > Disconnect Device.
Your device should now start up again. If it hasn't started up after 10 seconds, press the On/off button.

Screen deactivated & a red circle with an 'X' flashing

First turn your firewall off (if you have one). You need to go into your 720 with the TomTom Home software and erase the downloaded software (with the remove items from my device) and reset the device (little reset button under the unit keep it pressed for 5 seconds), place it back in the cradle and restart your computer and than restart the 720 , bring the TomTom Home program up, and when the TomTom Home software in your computer restarts and detects the 720 it will tell you that you need to update the application, if it doesn't than you force the update by going to the add maps option, select items on my computer, select applications and press the add button, when done, go back and to device (option in top of your screen) and select disconnect device, restart your 720 and it should be back to life with the upgraded software.

Red x on my tomtom go one

Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver flashing white X in a red circle
I discovered that there was a file on the 910 called CLMDATA which was corrupt. When I deleted this in Windows explorer, the unit started up and worked OK. This file is recreated when the unit starts up
