Question about Psion NETBOOK PRO
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!
