Try removing battery and putting it back, even if this wont probably ficx it

From description it looks like the LCD display ribbon cable and connector inside the problem had moved or is out from place, the phone must be taken apart to fix this.

    The problem is eithe the flat ribbon cable connecting the LCD inside the phone, The LCD ribbon cable connector, or a faulty LCD display.

    To fix this the phone must be taken apart, the ribbon cable unplugged from display and fit back in place.

    If it does make no difference, then the cable must be tested and eventually replaced.

    If still no joy, the PDA LCD must be replaced, this is also a relatively not expensive part.

    In rare occasions this problem (lines on screen) may be caused by a defective video controller chip. In this case repair is expensive, as you have to replace whole PDA mainboard. This does not happen very often.

    If the PDA is still under guaranty, then call Sharp, using the phone number listed on the owner manual, and use the warranty to repair it.

    If unit is out of warranty, then go to a phone repair shop, and ask a quote for repair, probably it is just the screen cable to be replaced.

    Note if the bit of lines are static black lines, then what must be replaced is the display.

    If they vibrate or change of position, then it is the LCD ribbon cable.

    Call also Sharp at the number listed on user manual, if you have two PDAs of same model in same condition, it can also be a factory defect on the specific model.

    In this case, if Sharp acknowledges that they are defective from factory, they may offer to repair them for free, even if guaranty is expired.

The display of my SHARP PWE550 digital dictionary has become distorted.Several vertical lines appear on the screen where the text is missing.


Mine also has vertical lines in sharp and this the 2nd time I buy this device because of this problem. It seems that the problem is from the joint data cable where we keep open and close the cover.

I don't recommend you buy another one because i threw 2 of them because of this problem - although sharp dictionary is the best among others concerning the definitions.

Thank you.

I was given a Sharp 128 kb organiser back in 1996 - it has served me well. Just today I must have pressed the wrong key and deleted every record on the system in one go. Questions 1. Can I re-instate the...

1. If you don't see the information you cannot get it back.
2. You will have to adjust the date, hour and probably also the location you are in, as they were reseted to factory settings.
I cannot tell you exactly how to do it becase you don't tellwhat Casio organiser model you have.
In any case , you will have to get into Calendar/Clock mode.
Probably the machine will have a function key with a Clock on it. Press it and see if you can update the date and time info.
I leave you a link to a page drom where you can download manuals from same Sharp organiser. Perhaps yours is one of those:
