My Start25 has been a gem for years however, will now switch on okay but instead of showing normal screen now shows bright backlight only. Ideas?

    Hi
    @Andy_Mak477

    Have you tried a Soft/Drum roll restart on the device ??? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh

    RESETTING YOUR NAVIGATION DEVICE

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......

    Yep, done that! You hear the Tom Tom drum roll but the screen lights up and stays bright. It’s kind of like the brightness is set too bright!
