Mitac mio 168 problem

Hi
I took the memory card out of my mio168 while it was on, the screen kinda flashed and went white.
I switched it off and on rebooted it and heres what happens:
when switched on you get a glimpse of the mio digiwalker page the colours are not correct, the screen then goes white. when the audible sound comes up you get a glimpse of the window mobile page then it goes into lines, on a bright screen.
the unit was pluged into the charger at the time.
Do you think this to do with me removing the card?
do you think its a screen problem?
is it possible to flash the rom on this unit?
is it knakerd?
Appreciate any help on this
Best regards
Wayne

Hi, to replace battery, you need to undo the 4 screws hold the back casing. When these are removed you can open the back, revealing the battery. There is a black plug that pushes into a white socket on the pcb, with 4 wires coming out of it that goes to the battery. Pull this plug out and the battery then comes free. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: mio 168 screen problem?

Have you tried contacting microsoft about this at all?

I am really not all that familiar with this device so I recommend using the "Ask Me" function for a different expert as you did for me.

I can give you a couple of suggestions. I believe there is a reset pin on the device, find it and press it. Second, try removing the battery and leave it out overnight to reset it. If either works, let me know, otherwise I don't know that much about this problem and either Microsoft or another expert would be able to help you better.

I'm sorry I can't be more help.

Have a good day.

My Mio 168 just won't charge


The socket on the bottom of these is a common failure point. It wobbles about until the solder cracks then the device won't charge. If you're confident with a soldering iron you might be able to fix it yourself. Remove the SD card and fold the GPS antenna down. Remove the four case screws and carefully separate the back by gently prying it along the join. Watch out for the cable to the GPS antenna. Now you should be able to see the 22-pin socket. The pins are tiny. Very carefully re-solder them, and the ends of the connector where they attach to the PCB. The YouTube video seems to illustrate it pretty well.

Alternatively, there's this option which is altogether more drastic:

You have to have an ignition switch on, only then to connect a device. It is to protect device against an electric shock.
