Black screen, not booting properly but functional after soft reset [TomTom XL]
Friend of mine had problems with having an outdated map and wanted new ones. I told them you had to pay for that and they didn't want to.
I told them I maybe could try to get illegal new maps on their device and in that way give them an update.
So I found a few guides on here and did one. The updating went all as planned. I backed up all and later I installed the new maps. I then used the activation program and all went smooth.
Then I wanted to test it out and plugged it from my computer. I then wanted to boot it up but no go. I have the backlight going ( black screen ) and hear an activation of the sound.
From there it does a whole lot of nothing.
Then I tried to resetting it ( Holding the power button for about 15 seconds ) and that worked. It booted and works fine.
So my question is, since my friends aren't that much of geeks, how I can resolve this problem so that it boots normally ?
