I have a 3 month old hand held battery dictionary that has stopped working.

Contact the seller to confirm warranty coverage and request replacement.

Doesn't turn on

Did you drop it, and when you shake it, it makes some kind of rattling noise? then you probably broke it.

Some of the letters are half missing. There appears to be vertical lines/spaces along the length of the screen. Have replaced batteries twice.

The screen is becomind detached from the contact strip. You can try to repair it yourself, if you are good at tedious things but, you will probably end up replacing it soon.

My Sharp electronic dictionary has developed horizontal and vertical lines on the screen and therefore I am unable to read the text displayed on the screen. I tried changing the battery too but still the...

I had this problem after the unit was dropped on the floor. I had nothing to lose, so I pried the cover off the back of the screen with my fingernails. You can see the grooves on the edges to pry it off. It just snaps back on. Inside I found a circuit board with 3 black pillow-looking things and a bunch of tiny solder joints, all marked by tiny numbers. Joint number C503 wiggled like a loose tooth, indicating a less than perfect union. I wiggled it with my finger and caused all kinds of weirdness on the screen, as well as some instances of perfect clarity. I occasionally had to push the reset button on the bottom to see the screen again, but not always. I eventually wiggled the joint just right and the screen looked great. With that, I snapped the back cover on, and it has been fine since. One line on the extreme right end, but I can live with it. If the problem comes back to where I can't read the screen contents, I may take it to a local electronics repair shop and ask someone to re-do that one solder joint. Like I said, I've got nothing to lose.
So far, repairs have been free.

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 have a problem with my Partner X8c translator, which scren after three years of using stopped to work properly. The batteries are new. Do you know any repair service opportunities? I want avoid buying just a new translator as they are really expensive and should be able to work longer then three years.

How to Set the Time on the Royal rp6s

1. Press the "time" icon just below the screen until the date and time shows up (not the count down screen)
2. Press the "edit" button (same as the "new" button)
3. Use the number portion (to the right of the screen) to enter the information.
4. To change the am/pm setting, use the "am/pm" button (same as the letter "B") to toggle between the two.
5. Hit "OK" after correct information is set.
5. Screen info should show exactly what you put in with the corresponding day of the week.
