If you have a tom tom from the GO models
they hace a reset button you can press with a pin were the mount fits.
When you plug in the charger the green light should come on to say it is chargeing.
Try the car adapter to charge the tom tom
After checking around around the web it seems that you are not the only one to get the green screen of death. My suggestion is to hold reset for several seconds, release reset and hold the power button button for 10 seconds. If this doesn't work the only other option is to let the unit sit for several days to let the internal battery completly drain, once drained theirs a good chance it will function normally, this allows any temporary memory to be cleared.
Good Luck & hope this helps
1. move unit closer to cad sensor, if it works your battery in Cad is weak, change it with CR 2032 (3 volt).
2. are you pressing the reset button , the red light comes on then turns green and blinks green for sixty passes of the Cad.
3. If the red light does not turn green the reset button is faulty.
4. make sure its a 305 and not a 205 as this does not work with cad ( I know! but you would be surprised how many dealers will sell both units together)
Put the receiver in the charging cradle. Does the green charging light appear? If it does not, you might just have a defective cradle and hence a completely flat battery; try charging with the car charger and retry. If it doesn't charge with either charger, the power section of the TomTom is obviously gone.
Assuming you now have a charged TomTom, keep the power button pressed for five seconds. If it does not turn on, try resetting it by inserting a paper clip in the RESET hole hidden below the front cover.
If it still does not turn on, it's either a defective power button or a faulty mainboard, and I'm afraid you can't easily fix either; you'll have to send it to maintenance.
i take it you mean you have a green light and nothing else, try resetting it there is a small pin hole at the back of the tomtom that says reset use a paperclip and press and hold for ten seconds , if that doesnt start it up then i am afraid you have blown a chip on the tomtom through a dodgy car charger
I had this problem. had it plugged in charging and then pressed the the reset and the power button at the same time for about 30-50 seconds and then after that pressed the power button and so far so good
