Have you tried the reset hole? make sure there is nothing stuck in there that could be pressing on the button. When you press and hold the reset button the screen stays blank.

If you press the reset button does the unit turn on? Mine turns on when I press the reset button even after I turn the battery off then back on.

Hope this suggestion might help you restore functionality.

IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WHO COULD HELP ME????? I have had a Navman N20 but I have a problem. The power button at the top doesn't turn it on or off. When I charge it the light comes on amber but hasn't...


You need to hold the power button for about 5 seconds to turn it on. If that does not turn it on. Then you need to run a check on some of the components of the device. You start with the battery, then charger and the device seem to be working fine, because when you plug it in, the device amber lights come on. It is supposed to turn green when it is fully charged, but it seems like the battery is not holding a charge, that is why it is not turning green.

Test another well charged battery inside the device to see if it will power on and work properly, if it does, then it means all you have to do is to replace the battery, but if it does not power it on, then it means there is an internal problem with the unit.

Try to connect it to a computer to see if it will detect it. Once it detects it, try to charge in on there for some time to see if it will hold a charge there.

If it is properly charged, it will be able to power on fully. Also check the device on the computer to see if the software and files are still on the unit. That should also assist you in solving the problem.

Hope this information helped you.

Unit does not power on


two things: It could have over heated and either cooked the battery or need to be fully charged before it will reboot.

Second there is a screen off mode, if you hold down the power button it will switch from light to lights off.

Wont charge or turn on


not sure how long you have had this, but if the unit was completely turned off or battery completely dead, you have to hold the power button for about 15 seconds for the 3000t to start up...assuming the charge light at the top right is orange (that means its charging) no light means its not charging, green light means fully charged. if there is no power light on at the top right of unit, either the charger is bad or the port on the board is bad (which i do have) good luck and hope this helps. bill

Tom tom home does not see my tom tom go 520


Hi canal_boat_m

Try this solution:

STEP 1 Un-install Tom Tom Home from your PC

STEP 2 Click on the link below:

http://tomtom.com/lib/img/cs/S4S/files/RemoveRegEntries_TTGOv1.exe
This will download a little removal program for the Tom Tom Home program.
A Black window will appear briefly then close.
• Make sure that you have got Administrator rights on the PC. Otherwise you may not be allowed to connect new hardware (especially the case when using office computers)
• Reboot your PC

STEP 3 Visit Tom Tom website and download the current new version of Tom Tom Home and install it to your PC
STEP 4 Connect the TomTom

• Make sure the device is fully charged before connecting it to the computer. Ideally a mininum of 4 hours charge.
• Reset the device using a paper clip (see http://www.tomtom.com/6965). When resetting, keep the reset button pushed in for at least 20 seconds, but DO NOT turn the device back on just yet.
• Ensure that your TomTom has power connected to it. There should be a green light on the TomTom unit. If your device came with a Home Charger, please make sure that is plugged in to the TomTom also.
Your Tom Tom should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' if it does tap YES.

SOLUTION:
Your unit should now be recognized by your PC.

IF IT DOESN'T then follow the instructions below:

1. Connect your unit to your PC;
2. Copy two folders to your PC (namely 'Raster' and the one which holds all your maps - probably called 'United Kingdom and Eire';
3. Using Windows Utility, right click on the Tom Tom drive unit and select Fomat;
4. Switch off the unit and soft-reset it with a paper clip (but hold it in for at least 20 mins) and then re-connect it and power it up;
5. Tom Tom Home should now detect the unit and your unit should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' so tap YES;
6. Tom Tom Home will now say your device needs updating - and if you apply all the changes it will restore it to Factory Finished!
7. Then all's needed is to replace the two folders you backed up and any other items like mp3's and sounds, pics, etc.

Navman icn 520 stuck on USB screen


I had this problem when I completely deleted the Backup folder from \My Flash Disk.

Restoring the backup folder allowed the 520 to operate properly again.

It is possible that you have a corrupted APPStartupSec.exe application. Without this file working it appears that the NAVMAN waits in USB mode for ever!

Hope this helps.

check the battery switch on the back. you will need a pen. Mine does the same thing. I believe this switch has to be set to ON for it to work. At least mine wont turn on unless the switch is turned on.

Well I have done it with my magnifying glass dentists pick & my fine nosed wire cutting tweaser, and time... But more often it is easier to Disassemble the units & simply unsolder the Female Socket from the Board and replace with a new one, then ya can buy the connectors as a pair.. ensuring proper fit.
