Psion Netbook and the rain and Windows

Hi. My Psion Netbook go damp in the rain (just a shower) and has not worked since. there is a little blanket like illumination of the screen but nothing else (no beeps, nothing) - a motherboard fuse blown? any ideas?
if its a fuse, where can I buy one and I'll have a go at the delicate soldering.
If I can get it working again, can I get a windows OS onto it? many thanks.

If this is the original Psion NetBook (not the Pro) then you are stuck with the OS you have.
I would remove both the OS/RAM DIMM and the extra RAM DIMM if you have it, as well as removing the CF card. Make sure they are all clean and dry. Take the battery off too. You then need to leave the netbook open, with the CF card slot open in an airing cupboard or other warm dry place for 24 hours. Leave the battery in there too.
Once everything appears dry again, put it all back together and it should work. If not, you'll have to send it off for repair. There are still some ex-Psion engineers in the UK doing netbook repairs, have a look on the pdaforums for addresses.
Hope you get it fixed!

Little used shower system (rain head, hand held and body nozzles) now has very reduced pressure. was fine 6 months ago when last used.


Pull it apart and see if the flow restrictor is plugged in the water inlet to the shower head.

Psion Revo replacement restore


What do you do if you no longer have access to a Psion, but need to access some data from an old Psion backup on your PC? Native Psion files can't be read on a PC, but fortunately, there are some solutions:
  • Use the PsiWin PC connectivity suite to convert the Psion-format files to a format that can be read on the PC.
  • Download and install the Psion ER5 emulator - this gives you a Psion machine on your PC, and will allow you to access your old data on a PC - See our emulator setup page. From the emulator, you may be able to print or export your data to a text file, or use a third -party Psion converter
  • Consider borrowing or buying an old Psion machine, loading the files onto the Psion, then printing the documents or data as a text file
  • Find another friendly Psion user that may be able to convert the file into a format that can be read by a PC for you. If you don't know of another user, try asking for help in our Psion forum
also
Data conversion for the Psion can be quite complicated, due to the file formats used by Psion / Symbian. You should find that the PsiWin program supplied on CD with your Psion machine can help you with most of your conversion needs. If your PC is connected to your Psion, dragging files from "My Psion" to the PC should prompt you to convert to a PC format, otherwise you can convert files that are stored on the PC, using the Psion File Converter. This program is installed with PsiWin and is located in c:\program files\Psion\PsiWin - the application filename is Cpycnv.exe
psiwinconv.jpg For more help on file conversion, see our dedicated conversion page.
Agenda and Contacts databases: Note that these can't be converted using the Psion File Converter - PsiWin supports synchronisation of these files, but not direct conversion. See our suggestions in our Backup FAQ. The most common solution is to load up the files in the Psion Emulator, and either use Print to save the data as a plain text file, or use a Psion-based converter, as detailed on our Conversion page

My rain shower is blocked , only 20% of the holes are working, what do I do, It is two years old and slowly the holes are not working


Your shower head is getting clogged with calicum or lime and will continue to plug up worse until you clean it.
Remove the Shower head from the Shower pipe and submerse it in a bucket mixed with 50% Water and 50% CLR. Let it say submersed for about an hour, then rinse it completly under fresh running water to wash away the CLR and the dissolved calicum/lime.
CLR can be bought at numerous places such as Lowes,Home Depot, and numerous other places.

Psion seems quite dead although the green light and the light on the charger both light up when connected to the mains, but nothing happens on the screen. Tried changing the round battery - no effect at...


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.

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.

Psion 5 fc card


The formatting is supposed to be identical on Psion and PC but in practice they are not. You should never try to repair a CF card on a PC for instance as it messes with the filesystem making it unusable on the Psion. Try to format the card on the Psion if you can, or if possible find or borrow a camera which takes CF cards and use that to format the card - that should do the trick.

Netbook pro won't startup


Go to netBookPro boot menu as follows: Whilst the splash screen comes up insert a paperclip in the tiny reset hole near the enter key, then press Ctrl + D +Esc(On). Now the netBookPro boot menu should come up, then select the option : !) Clean start main OS (just press Shift +1). Now you should get a reboot with the initial OS-settings. I experienced the same problem after running xclkcfg.exe (an overclock utility for the Sigmarion III ) so best stay away from this utility. have fun Rob.
