It doesn't look good. It could be that the unit has been formatted accidentally, the SD card has become corrupted or the reader damaged.

If it is a config problem, the unit can be reset to factory settings.

To reset your TomTom device, do the following:
  • Check that the battery is charged properly. Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again.
  • Reset your navigation device. Press and hold the On/Off button until you hear the drum sounds and the device restarts. This can take 30 seconds or more.

Usually, it takes longer to find the satellite signa if you are indoors, under structures and/or don't have a clear "line of sight" to the satellites in the sky, assuming you're in a (geographical) area where there's usable satellites .... e.g. not in the middle of the Ocean.
If you are not experiencing these conditions, and it still take a long time, it will help if you download and install the latest QuickGPSFix update from the TomTom website, using HOME (software).

You might consider using a USB cable with an angled connector. This way the stress will no longer be on the TT motherboard but more on the housing. You can find such cable on eBay.
