You may not likely find/get the activation code(s) for your map(s) since your map versions are quite old ... current map versions are 920... Your other option is to purchase a current map from TomTom.
You can go to (and if you haven't registered your GPS device, register the GPS device (on against your name, etc.,) and purchaseicon1.png a map (of your choice). With this purchase, you will download the map (software and data), and an activation code to validate the map. After that you should be able to use the GPS device (for the purchased maps).

If you just get the green light and it will not start and pressing the reset will not start it in any way then it is not repairable if under warranty tomtom will replace it but if not then you will have to buy a new satnav If it starts but a message or an X is on screen then a full system reinstall may fix it. Follow instructions from website and remember to back up first and ensure you have a copy of the map first.

If you have a back up simply copy and paste it back, if you have made a back up using tomtom home look in, my documents/tomtom/home/backup. This is the default location for tomtom home. If you cant find it anywhere, give me your email address and i'll send it to you
