TomTom Stopped Working

I rarely use my TomTom, Maybe 8 times in the past 3 months. It suddenly stopped working, saying "Please wait" (in 5 different languages) on a white screen with the hour glass I've hit the reset button a few times with no result. Any help? Will the manufacturer fix this for me?

    Same thing has happened to me an dI have never used it. A white screen with an hour glass that says please wait.

    Yup, me too. I rarely use it too and now it turns on and then proceeds with the wallpaper that's stuck. I can't do anything with it other than turn it on. The only way I can turn it off is by disconnecting it. It's frustrating. This is very expensive and I was only able to use it about 7 times since I bought it and now it's just junk. I'm never buying a TomTom again and I will advise all my friends against it. It sucks 'cause I hear bad reviews about other GPSs too.

    Same problem here. I had the tomtom for a while....probably at least a year or two. Worked great and then one day the wallpaper came up and it just stuck there. It'll stay there until the battery drains. Can't get any other screens to come up or anything. I'll try connecting it to my PC to see if that works but I'm not holding my breath.

Tomtom still charges but traffic receiver stopped working

I'm using the TomTom Go 730T - I think this is the latest and the last TT with Traffic because TT stopped supplying this option. I'm having the same problem from time to time but a reset helps. Just press the Reset button and after restarting the traffic option is back. Janos

Green light, followed by yellow light flashes 5 times, then green again. Print screen says operator error, press printer's resume button.

Hi there
You can try not really know but it like your waste ink needs to be reset.

Start with the printer OFF

1. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
2. Release RESUME
3. Press RESUME twice, then release POWER
4. Wait until print head stops moving
5. Press RESUME four times (if four doesn't work try three times)
6. Press POWER once
7. Press RESUME four times (if four doesn't work try three times)
8. Press POWER once

Repeating the RESUME/POWER code twice made the difference, the fixes I found wouldn't work because they stopped at step 6.

Microwave stopped working

to indutolia

The original problem was probably a bad turntable motor, which is pretty easy to replace.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Now I'd say you have a bad door switch (whether upper or lower depends on the model number) or a problem with the door switch mount.

This is a pretty simple problem to fix, too:

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

to lostonisland - Your problem is different enough that it should be a separate post. Please include your brand and model number when you repost.
