Hummm, this is a tough one...

1: Can you see the device in win explorer?
If yes, try to run "chkdsk /f" in a dos prompt.

2: Do you have a working backup?
Then you can format the internal drive through Windows or similar. Format with FAT32, the reinstall backup.

3: Run the Clear Flash tool:

3: Still no joy?
Then maybe send it in for repair, or buy a new one?

Hi my tomtom 910 go wont switch on ], but when useing the charger the little green light lights up and will stil not switch on ive tries the hard resetting and does not work


I've had a similar problem on 2 TomTom 910s.
First, try holding in the reset button while holding the power switch down for 5 seconds.

If that doesn't work, let it charge for 12 hours and while it's still charging, hold the power switch down for 5 seconds.

It worked for me on both

Good luck

My tomtom go 910 will not switch on it has the green light on at the top left when plugged into a charger but nothing turns on when pressing button for 2 seconds any ideas??


In general I find these sort of problems can be fixed by the below

If the Tomtom loses battery power it might cease to function with a blank screen but will show a green light when you charge it. The trick is charge it on the mains charger for at least two hours. Then reset the device with a paper clip. If you get no reponse hold down the on button for at least 20 secs and the device will show the Tomtom logo and play a drum roll and startup normally.

I have seen the green screen problem a few times before and this was caused by corrupted data / software or an error in booting up.
If you can't turn any TomTom off then perform a reset by inserting a paper clip into the rest hole and give 1 short press of the reset button ( it's a tactile switch so you should feel it click ) then try switching the TomTom on again the normal way. ( reset buttons are normally found through a small hole underneath the TomTom ).
If the TomTom does switch on but continues as before with the loading up problem , then it's best to format and reload all files from your backup copy.
A RED CROSS indicated a loading fault / corrupted files / incomplete files / corrupted or damaged media . ( media , meaning SD card or hard-drive )
