    This is definately a digitiser problem.
    If the cleaning does not help check the digitiser before you order a new one off Ebay (only a few bucks).
    There are different models available and the sellers always claim they fit, so check the picture if the cable lenght and location match with your digitiser

    Can anyone help with a freezing problem please?

    Start 20, bog standard unit running 840.2562 UK maps. (bought for 20 pounds)
    After turning on you set it up, and every time it gets to the set clock page it freezes when you press 'done'
    After several seconds it reboots, and continues in this loop.

    I have tried the V9401 hacked navcore, I've connected to Home and it upgraded to 9.02.
    I have tried the flash clear tool some 10 times.
    I've formatted the internal memory (both FAT and FAT32)
    I have tried newer maps and the newest maps.
    And any combination of all the above!

    The maps patch, the system patches and everything seems fine, but when you disconnect and reboot it freezes at the set clock page.

    Any idea's?
    Thanks, Bob.

    The Start 20 device is (meant to be) running navcore 10 or 11 and is basically un c r a c k a b l e see [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    How did you manage to connect this to your PC to add patched navcores/maps etc?
    Are you SURE it's a Start 20?

    If it's a Start (non 20/40 etc) then try [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Appologies, it must be a 'Start' and not a 'Start 20'
    I was told it was the 20 model but as the navcore isa V8.x it's obviously not :-)

    I'm grabbing the 9.405 navcore as I type, thanks for the info.
    I'll update you later.

    I've just tried the genuine NC - unit freezes at the time set screen
    I then tried the ******* NC - again it freezes at the time screen.

    Only difference is the genuine NC after freezing causes the unit to not turn off via the on/off button!

    UPDATE::

    I've been in touch with Tom Tom Support and had the following, which didn't work and still gave me the screen freeze/reboot at the set time setting.
    Might be of use to someone?:--


    This issue can be caused due to some corruption in the application software.

    We need to remove the application first and then reinstall a new application via TomTom HOME.

    To do this please follow the steps mentioned below:

    STEP 1 - Backing up your TomTom device.

    - Click ‘Manage my device’ in TomTom HOME and select the ‘Items on device’ tab
    - Select ‘Maps’ and ‘Postcodes’
    - Click ‘Copy items to computer’
    - Close HOME

    STEP 2 - Delete the Application from device

    - Connect the device to the computer and open TomTom HOME
    - Go to Manage My Device
    - Click 'Items on my device'
    - Select the 'Application' and click 'Remove items from device'

    STEP 3 - Delete the Applications from the computer

    - Go to Manage My Device
    - Click 'Items on computer'
    - Select the 'Applications' (there may be more than one)
    - Click 'Remove items from computer'

    STEP 4- Check the device memory for errors:

    Windows:
    - Click Start > (My) Computer > right-click on the icon for the TomTom device
    - Click Properties >Tools tab.
    - Under Error checking click Check Now. Tick both boxes and then click Start

    Mac:
    - Go to Applications : Utilities : Disk Utility
    - Select the device / memory card in the left pane and then click Repair Disk

    STEP 5 - Re-download the Application

    - Go to Update My Device
    - Select the 'Application' (it may be pre-selected)
    - Click on Update and install
    - Repeat this process until no more applications are offered.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Please let me know have you made any progress or not.

    I then had the following from Tom Tom Support, which again didn't work, but might be of use to someone.
    It details backing up, formatting and reinstalling.

    -=-=

    I would request you to format your TomTom device and check if it resolves the issue.

    If you haven't already done so, please download and install the latest version of TomTom HOME from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    STEP 1 - Creating a backup of your map

    - Charge your unit for at least two hours (preferably via the home charger)
    - Perform a reset on your device (see: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] )
    - Connect your device to the computer and turn it on
    - Open the Home software, go to page 2 and press on the "Manage My Device" (Go, ONE, XL) button.
    - Tick Map, Postcode and Speed Cameras and then press on the "Copy to Computer" button

    IMPORTANT: We advise you to follow the next steps ONLY if you have made a successful backup of your map.

    STEP 2 Format your device

    - Open My Computer; you will see the TomTom device as a removable disk drive.
    - Right click on the TomTom device drive and choose 'Format' (Please make sure quick format is not selected)

    On a Mac:-
    - On a Mac, you can format the disk via 'Disk Utility', Select the TomTom drive and select 'MS DOS File System' and press erase.
    The application can be found under Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility

    After the Format has completed, please disconnect your TomTom device from your computer.

    It will now have a red cross on the screen.

    STEP 3 Open TomTom HOME

    - Log in to your account with your email address and password for your TomTom account.
    - On Page 2 of TomTom HOME, click on ‘Manage My TomTom -> Items on Computer’
    - Tick the option for ‘Applications’
    - Tick the option for ‘Voices’
    - Click on ‘Remove Selected Items’

    STEP 4 Install the Application

    - Reset your TomTom device as shown on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    - Connect it to your computer and THEN turn it on
    - HOME will now search for updates automatically. If not please click on “Update my Device”
    - A list of updates should appear
    - If there is a TomTom application (with the green puzzle piece icon), please ensure it is ticked
    - Click on 'Update and Install'
    - Once complete click on Done and your device should reboot itself
    - Once it connects again it will look for more updates
    - When you have a new list of updates please click on Back
    - Disconnect the device by clicking on the Blue Eject button in the bottom right
    - Now connect again and repeat STEP 4 to install any further Application updates until no more updates are offered

    STEP 5 Restore the map back on device

    - Connect device to HOME
    - Click on Add Traffic, Safety Cameras, Voices, etc in HOME
    - Click on 'Items on my computer' on last page
    - Click on 'Maps' and select the map
    - Click on ADD

    Safely disconnect device from HOME.

    This should resolve the issue.

    -=-=-= END MSG -=-=-=

    It then goes on to say how to get the system info and to send TT Support that for escalation of the problem. of which there it is :-)

    Another Latest Update:

    The latest TT Suport info was to 'back up my (now 2) Starts (a 1G and a 2G) and reinstall the navcore' - yet again!
    Then to download an old V850 map set, to see if that will work.

    BUT, if it won't boot, then, I think, no matter what map set you have it won't even get that far - and it didn't :-)

    I then told them that I have tried another genuine TT Start system that I copied over (that's 2 now) and neither of my Starts booted beyond the set time screen.

    I didn't tell them, but did try all the SE Navcores available posted here, those that did boot stuck on the set time screen the others just froze on the TomTom word and 2 red hands screen.

    The last message from them was to phone their 'premium' phone number to speak to support, which due to working conditions I can't and then I had an email from them, finally, giving me info of what they need to return it to them as there is obviously a hardware fault - DUH!!!

    I'll let you know the outcome of that as and when.

    Final Update:
    I returned 2 TT Start units to TomTom.

    A 2 Gig unit is on its way back to me, 'repaired' free of charge.
    The other 1 Gig unit (which had the identical fault) has been replaced at a cost of 75 Euro (or about 51 UK Pounds)

    Both of them will have a TomTom 6 month gaurantee.

    Morel of the story - Don't buy a faulty unit off Ebay <grin!>

    Bob.
