    I have re-loaded the newest DCP from Motorola as suggested by the Motorola support team. The new software: partician table; platform; Application and OS did not make the problem go away. I have tried this on about 4 units several times and it never works.



    Any other ideas???

  • sgorham13 Oct 07, 2009

    I have tried loading the newest DCP software package that Motorola suggested to try and fix this problem. The software consists of: partician table; platform; application and OS.
    THis has not worked yet on about 4 units I have tried fixing this way. Replacing the radio card does not work either.

  • sgorham13 Oct 07, 2009

    The manufacturer says it is a hardware problem since loading new software does not fix the problem. I have seen this problem come up on about 15 units in the last couple of months.
    The units are only 18 months old and the problem is happening on 30% of all the units being used.
    I am hoping there is a software fix because a hardware fix will be very expensive.

    This radio card us custom for this Mototola device. The card has holes for about 30 pins to incert into it to make a connection to the CPU board inside the terminal. It is not like simular to a PCMCIA card with all the holes that connect it to the host.

    There may be a way to reformat the card but I would have no way of knowing what that might be and it would have to be done while it is still in the PPT8846 terminal.

  • sgorham13 Oct 07, 2009

    It appears that no one has had any experiance with this type of hardware. It is not like a consumer device all the parts are propriatery so these ideas I am getting will not work. I was hoping a service technician who works on these might log in and be willing to tell me a fix if there is one.

  • sgorham13 Oct 07, 2009

    The Terminal says: Enter the name of the device driver for this card. The information can be found in the card manufacturers documentation.

    Of course you are not given such documentation nor can I find it on the internet.

    The card is an: LA-4137

    FCC ID: H9PLA4137



    Any ideas?

  • sgorham13 Oct 07, 2009

    I found this same link since my last email to you and I am downloading the software to see if I can make it work for me?

    I will let you know if this works.

  • sgorham13 Oct 07, 2009

    I went to the first link and they don't show you what they have they just want you to pay $30 to download some unknown files/drivers and take your chances they may have what you need.

    NOT INTERESTED in doing that.



    I will have to do more research and talk with more folks to find a FIX not an idea of where to find a fix.

    I loaded the newest drivers a few minutes ago on two units and NO DIFFERANCE.

1 of two things:

bad card

most likely the driver for the card s not loaded onto the device and you will have to locate the driver.

Software will need to be updated for this problem to go away. you may get lucky enough to find a download on the web or you send to manufacture.

Try to format the card ....maybe this is what cause the problem ...if you do not have access on the card in any way ...insert it in a msd adapter that will make it sd like ...and put it in the card reader of the computer ...
it also might be cause its too big and some phones doesn't support all cards ...but only to a limit like 512 M or 1G ..

Based on the original problem, you mentioned "
unknown card in socket 1". It seems that you are having a problem with the card slot, am I right?

If yes, you need to contact the manufacturer to test the card slot. If the slot is OK, then the only thing that would solve this issue could be firmware upgrade. The manufacturer should have the best firmware that would work best for your device and I'm sure that your device would work better than ever.

Have a great day!

Check your bios to see if your sound card software changed the order of operation for sound devices. Video cards can also effect this too. Good luck.

Pavilion a288n video loss


Check your memory. Memory is one absolute sign for no video. Also check the pins on the video plug to make sure none are bent or broken. You must make sure the pc is turned off when doing these things. And make sure your video card is seated all the way down. No gold showing outside of the pci slot. Also you can try another pci slot. Sometimes they fail. You can also try plugging your pc and monitor into another wall outlet. Believe it or not it is not uncommon that one wall socket will put out more power than another. I've seen it 1/2 doz. times myself in older houses.
If none of these suggestions work & you don't mind letting me know I could give a few more in depth possiblities to try.

I had the same problem "unknown disk, please check disk". Tried the reset method described in the owner's manual (power off, unplug and wait 5 seconds). This did not work.

I then put the unit into the setup mode (press set-up on the remote.) I selected "Factory Settings" under the general category and then chose "Set". These reset the unit and it seems to be working okay now. Hope this helps.
