    Help TomTom go 910 freezes up at start.

    Hello,

    [Login or Register to remove this advertisement]


    I am planning to buy TomTom go 910 with boot up problems. The price is good, so I am interested mostly on accessories. The device does not work properly it loads up the first 3 screens then freezes up that is as far as the machine works. My friend told me that he tried to connect TomTom to PC but with no luck, the device does not show up as a removable device. TomTom has HDD, no upgrades.

    Is it possible to fix this problem?

    (sorry for my English)


    Thanks for your attention.
    Cheers.

    If your GO910 won't show up as an extra drive, you'r realy in trouble.
    There is one thing, it will start at least a little bit.
    Try to start your device and hold the on/off button as long till you get a black screen with a lot of informatie.

    Test the USB cable with another devices to be sure this cable is not your problem, please.
    Than tell us which Bootloader is in use at this moment.
    Problems with the USB connector could be a problem with the Bootloader.

    As long you're unable to see it as an extra drive, it's totaly impossible to change something.
    What is left is open the GO910 and get the 20GB HDD out for a test.
    I've such an interface to connect the drive to the computer for a test.
    But I'm probably not living next door.

    In the most worse case if your HDD is bricked, in the GO190 fit also an SD slot, available at Ebay

    But most important now is to get it visible if possible.
    Make use of diffferent computers with different operating systems and so on.

    As soon it's possible to clean and format the HDD, your problem will be solved into an hour

    I'm pretty sure this device seems to be dead...
    What you wrote leads to only 1 conclusion - it's internal NAND (not seen by user), which contains Linux system itself - is dead. You'll need to buy same bricked device (suppose with damaged screen) to assemble 1 healthy device from these 2... To replace NAND yourself - you'll need find that pre-programmed...
    Well, indeed - every device can be fixed up, but I pretty sure - it'll cost a lot of money - hence, you'd better search for such WORKING device on eBay/etc instead...
