Do a reset. Most tt have a reset hole in the bottom (to see where the reset is for your device visit TomTom. If your device does not have a reset hole press the on/off button for at least 15 seconds. If this does not do the trick and have not played with operating system you probably have a burned rectifier (not worth fixing).

I cant get short root on my tomtom i had it on my old one.

Not all TomTom devices will accept an other boot version. You need a modern boot version, before you can upgrade your system. TomTom one with boot version 1, can't be updated. Same could go with very new TomTom devices. I run a GO740 live with Boot 5.51 and software 9.465 xxxxxxx Will accept all modern maps.
Bye the way. almost impossible to downgrade a TomTom.

TomTom Rider unit wont charge. Tried mains charger, USB connector and bike charger. Swapped out the battery and the unit boots up but that is just the charge in the new battery. Any help appreciated.

Power board is faulty, repair or replace. Workshop repair required. Oh, stop plugging a charger into the USB socket. It doesn'tlike it, thats for data transfer only. The round pin socket is the charger port

Tomtom wont come on

More than likely the negative post on your 910 is not making a contact. This is a known problem for the X10 series tt's. It can be fixed but you have to disassemble the tt to do it. No just replacing the battery won't fix your problem. If it was just a battery problem your tt would still boot up if connected to external power.

TomTom Go 300

boot up failure / switching off part way through the boot up is usually caused by corrupted data or files on your SD card.
When booting up with faulty data the TomTom has 3 options
  1. Continue to boot up and run the errored software
  2. Boot up until a file cannot be correctly loaded then shut down
  3. Try to boot up but if not possible show a RED X on the screen
The other cause for shutting down is a partly charged battery but since you are running off a charger lead this cannot be the case .
So , with the above in mind , its most likely that you have corrupted SD card . The only ways to recover from this is to format and re-install from a backup of the card. OR , it might be possible to overwrite some files or folders from a similar "friends" card in the hope that you overwrite the correct / corrupted file. This is a longshot in the dark but is a possible cure.

Good luck
