Only suggestion here is to try a cold reset. Make sure you have an up-to-date backup. Take all the batteries out and leave for a couple of hours. Re-install batteries and check the Psion. If all looks good, do a restore. If things look bad again, your system was corrupted so reset again but do not do a restore. You will then have to trial-and-error reloading parts of the backup.

I would suggest re-installing any third party software from scratch.

How do I change the internal battery (NOT the AA cells) on a Kodak Z5120. This battery maintains the camera calendar & time functions, among other things


You can't change that battery. But there is no need to do so.
Just put 4 recently charged NiMH batteries in the camera and wait 24 hours. The batteries will charge the internal battery. This little battery, should last at lease 10 years.
And only if you put the camera away for a longer time (weeks or months) get out the main batteries.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They don't give enough power and can start leaking.

HI. Tyre life is very variable depends on road surface, lenght of time in the sun, weight of driver, and amount of use. As for batteries, I have seen batteries last for only a few weeks, and I have seen others last for 7 years. Batteries do not like sitting around not being used. They need to be used, but not overused, to maintain their condition.
Good luck. Neil.

Is there a way of refurbishing the faded white legends on the keyboard of my Psion 5mx PDA? Or is there a repair company which undertakes such work?


You either need to buy a broken Psion with a good keyboard and replace the keyboard in your machine yourself. Look on Ebay.
The other way would be to trade-in your machine with one of the resellers that deal with Psion machines.
Problem made worse if you live outside the UK.

Hope this helps

I was using my Psion 5mx This evening "Playing the bombs game" when suddenly the game froze. It didn't freeze completely as the game timer was still going and I was able to switch the PDA off. After that...


Unfortuately after taking the machine to my local Psion Teklogix Retailer, I was told that my only solution wast to perform a "Hard Reset" on the machine. Thankfully the PDA still works fine, but my data is all gone. I've managed to restore my data up to July 2009, but the rest I'll have to write off to a learning experience. Needless to say, I'll never play the "Bombs game again". :-)

You probably already know that all the Psion 3 models had a weakness in the screen ribbon. Some would last for years and others would be lucky to see you through to the first anniversary. There are plenty of way so to get this sorted. If you are not very keen to fix it yourself then best to try and get a replacement from Ebay or a trade in form some of the companies that still deal with these machines.

After 3 years, i would by a new UPS...

The battery will have to be changed if you want to keep the old one.

What i've seen mostly here in south africa. When the battery life has ended they customer opens the ups and takes out the battery and then connects a car battery to the terminals. The then close the ups and let the car battery stand outside the ups.

Hope this info helps...
