SOURCE: tomtom wont turn on
If the green LED comes on OK and you have tried a re-set with a paper clip through the reset hole and it still won't switch on then the most likely cause is a blown chip inside the tomtom. This can be caused when you start your car. The extra strain of turning the engine causes voltage spikes to arrise in the cars wiring , just as your starter motor turns. Unfortunatly this extra high voltage , called a "spike" can damage the tomtom. Only solution is to take it to a specialist repairer or to return it to tomtom for repair. Don't let your average electronics shop have a go they are more likely to make a mess inside . Its a specialist job !

Mine is about three weeks old and just did the same thing. I ahd been using it while walking in a town in Germany. So I did not even have power/docking or PC problems.
I reset the unit with a paper clip. Look in the mounting opening at the lower rear of the 910, there is a small cut out. press this carefully, mine is now back to life and did not even lose my 'recent' list.

It is (most often) the problem is in Safety Preferences'
Tap 'Safety preferences', then 'Done', then "done" again, then 'Done" again, then select 'Never' for "Turn Off Map Display'
