Question about ASUS MyPal A636N Pocket PC
I bought my Asus A636 PDA over a year ago, in Europe. I am now in New Jersey, and the PDA tends to switch off (and terminate whichever program is running, especially Destinator), after a few minutes. I am looking for either a solution to this problem, or else a suggestion of a location (maybe in New York) where I can take the PDA to be diagnosed. Thanks, Amir
There is a problem with the battery cover switch. You should use a contact cleaning liquid spray or, if you are good in hardware, you can open up the PDA and solder a small capacitor in parallel with the switch. I did that yesterday, then I started iGO 2006 Plus and pressed several buttons. Everything was great, but I wasn't satisfied yet. I switched the hold button and started to hit the PDA dropped it on the table etc. When I had switched the button to unhold, surprise... the software was running. Problem solved! I have called a friend of mine and already modified his unit too.
Cheers and good luck!
