It can be caused due to the device not being charged completely or the settings are corrupted

To resolve the issue, please charge the device for 3 to 4 hours and then perform a soft reset on the device.

There must be a soft reset switch at the bottom of the device. You need to press it with the help of a ball tip pen or a pin. This should turn on the device.

If the issue still persists then it is the battery that has gone bad. You will need to replace it. If it is within the warranty period then contact the tomtom support and have the device replaced else you can contact a local repair shop and have it replaced

TomTom Go730 worked great yesterday, is a brick today. Battery charged, reset per TT website instructions, nothing. Any suggestions?

not much to do with that unit, check with a volt meter to verify that power is present at the plug cord charging, if all your efforts fail and the unit is dead your trouble is in the unit itself, this unit is not serviceable by any one other than one with knowledge and equipment to repair this unit, check for warranty if not obtain a new one,,,?Sorry

Screen deactivated & a red circle with an 'X' flashing

First turn your firewall off (if you have one). You need to go into your 720 with the TomTom Home software and erase the downloaded software (with the remove items from my device) and reset the device (little reset button under the unit keep it pressed for 5 seconds), place it back in the cradle and restart your computer and than restart the 720 , bring the TomTom Home program up, and when the TomTom Home software in your computer restarts and detects the 720 it will tell you that you need to update the application, if it doesn't than you force the update by going to the add maps option, select items on my computer, select applications and press the add button, when done, go back and to device (option in top of your screen) and select disconnect device, restart your 720 and it should be back to life with the upgraded software.

Will not connect to tomtom home says usb connection not recognize

Some people suggested resting the device, i wanted to do that then right before reseting it I just removed the memory card from the device and plugged it in then everything worked. I even put the memory card back and plugged it again and still worked. Don't know what was the problem, but this fixed it!

Hi i have justnd just purchases tom tom 730 Go and connected it to my pc. it wont seem to disconnect. it wont turn on fully and has a big cross on the screen

That means you didn't let TomTom Home finish your update before you disconnected. You can do one of two things: reconnect update your device, but if that fails to work, you're going to need to do a hard reset of the device. It is very important to allow TomTom Home to completely finish installing any updates you select before disconnecting or the software may become corrupt.
