My device will not turn on. It has been charged and when I plug it into the computer the screen on the device shows an computer with a red X to the right of it and a chord that leads to a TomTom device with a red triangle that has an exclamation mark in the center above the word TomTom. This happened when I was trying to update the device. Also, I tried pressing the power button for 30 seconds and that doesn't work. What else can I do? I never had any issues with my XL.

    Hi @DaddysCandy
    Welcome to the community! Could you try a recovery mode. See the process in the video below-

    So.....unfortunately, this didn't work. The screen will not change and it WILL NOT turn off. What do I do now?

    Welcome to the site....
    It looks like Recovery Mode has already initialized on your device....

    MyDrive Connect >> MUST << be running on your PC, and be capable of displaying as >> CONNECTED << on MyDrive Connect...

    When the device is in Recovery Mode... The device MUST be connected to your PC using the supplied USB Cable with MyDrive Connect running in the background for the Recovery process to complete....

    Installing MyDrive Connect....
    Here... https://help.tomtom.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360013959499-Installing-MyDrive-Connect

    See Tomtom FAQ... Navigation device not starting or displaying a cross....
    I think the device is somewhere between bullet-point (7) & (8)
    See... https://help.tomtom.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360013959579-Navigation-device-not-starting-or-displaying-a-cross

    Once Recovery Mode is initiated, and if a connection to MyDrive Connect has NOT established....
    Recovery Mode will continue to attempt to connect to MDC until the Server eventually times-out
    Any attempts at a Restart... The device, will continue to display a Splash screen with image of a PC and a Red Cross or a Screen displaying a spinning disc, until Recovery mode can establish a connection to MyDrive Connect or the Server eventually times-out....
