    I updated my tom tom 910 with the new software in a different computer, all my old data was removed but I was able to recover it. However, today, my device just won't start at all. I've tried resetting it and charging the battery overnight. What's going on?

Does it have reset button not coming on but is charged


You need to use a safety pin to reset the TOM TOM.

The reset button is on the bottom of the unit. It is a very small hole.

Put the pin in there, hold it for a few seconds and that should enable you to turn it back on.

To only way you can fix it is taking apart the Tom Tom, checking if the flat ribbon cable and connector to the screen are well in place and eventually replace the display ($80 on Ebay).
Unfortunately this will invalidate the guaranty, and you risk to damage your GPS if you are not a really experienced DIYer. Tom Tom offer one year full guaranty on all their receivers.

Seeking the repair of my tomtom Go 910


One suggestion is to plug the Tom Tom using the temporary power cord to you home circuit (not the power source from the car). That worked for me. Sometime the Tom Tom shuts down when left in the hot car requiring a reset. Then the best way is to plug in at home and restart. Try it, otherwise I can't help.

Tom tom no responce


The reset button on this unit is on the back at the top right as you turn the unit around. It is a very small hole. You must insert a paperclip or pin into this hole to reset the unit.

How to reset tom tom 910


the reset hole is hard to find... If you are looking at the back of the unit, it is in the upper right hand side of the liitle plastic protrusion at the top of the semi-circular opening above where you can see the exposed circuit board.
