Slight E-100 problem

I just got an old E-100 from a friend of mine, and it has a slight problem: it won't turn on. I've done everything I can think of, including a reset, a full reset, and taking both batteries out and putting them back in. When I tried that last one, it actually did turn on, but went off again after about 5 seconds. Do you think it may have something to do with the battery? It didn't tell me the battery was dead when I turned it on. Also, the device does look pretty worn (there are scratches on the screen), so it may just be time to put it out to pasture.

Re: Slight E-100 problem

You may need to open the case to see for any bad contact since this unit has been used for such a long time. Another test to check whether the problem is from the battery by plug the unit with the charger without battery.If the unit is on, then definitely, the problem is from battery and yo just simply replace it. But if it is still not on, then I suggest you do the check as I mentioned in the frst sentence above. Good Luck.

The boyfriend's reader has stuck on the title page of a book. Everything I've looked up says to do a hard reset, but the first step is to power the reader off. His won't power off. I've...

Hi Zoetic,

Looks like a charging issue, tryh the following:

1. Connect the Reader to the computer
2. Hit the Reset at the bottom for 3 seconds
3. Make sure a redlight comes on at the top of the unit
4. Leave the reader charging for about 15 minutes or half an hour
5. Disconnect the reader and check if its functional now
6. If not try the reset again

Screen alignment loop

The only thing I can think of is that the screen might be bad. Has it been hit or dropped? Are you SURE you haven't thrown it against the wall? :P Just kidding, but seriously, my dad's old Palm had a similar problem where if you tried to calibrate the screen, it would loop, and it was because the screen was old and wasn't performing correctly. Although you were pressing it in the right place, the screen wasn't reporting the locations properly, causing the thing to loop to try and get correct readings from the screen.

Old Treo 650, with slight deterioration to screen.

I believe that serial numbers are different for everything and that only model numbers stay the same. Most likely, the screen will work.

Hello, I have a question about my blackberry. I have At&T and i had a LG VU. Last night i went out and bought a blackberry 8820 Smartphone from a friend of mine. I put my sim card in and everything...

You need to call AT&T and ask them to change your data and text plan to a Blackberry plan. You can almost interchange any microsoft smartphone and pda but not between iphone, blackberry and Windows Mobile device. Hope this helps.

Jasjar-no sound-after spilled water on it.

I think you still have a good (not 100%) chance of saving it. It usually takes much longer than 1 day to dry out electronics that are still intact. I would open it up and let it dry. Otherwise, see if have a nerdy friend who has access to a non-humidified incubator and leave it in there for a few days. (that's how I salvaged a phone that went through the wash!)

Screen problem with my Cassiopeia E-100

Well, there is good news and bad news.... The good news is that your digitizer is working okay...the bad news is that you lcd isn't. This is due to three possibilities... 1. The video controller on the motherboard is bad...unlikely 2. The ribbon cables or connectors that attaches the lcd to the motherboard is bad...possible but unlikely 3. The lcd itself is shot or damaged...seen it more than once. The only way to really tell is to find someone else with another unit and just start swapping out pieces until you can rule out the trouble. Or in the interim, it is possible that the cable just jarred loose a little or has become dirty, preventing full contact. Simply disassemble the thing, clean the contacts, and put it back together...not hard to do, but not for the feint of heart either. Good luck, hope you get it fixed. p.s. Don't be afraid to take it apart...what can you loose, just be very careful to document each step if you haven't done it before. I've done it a couple of dozen times on various Casio E-1XX machines and never had any problems yet....
