    My other problem was listed as Won't turn on. In order to get back into FixYa, I have had to pay again...which is rather distressing, as I still don't have a satisfactory solution. I would also like to know how to get to Wikipedia from this site.

At the link below your manual can be downloaded (english)
On page 2 of this manual the following link is given for up-to-date information.
See Help How-to, updates etc.
If the problem persists your device may have hardware problem caused by some reason at transportation or if exposed directly to sunlight and caused some IC damage by overheating it
or some defective part etc.
This kind of damages is difficult be repaired thru internet because the device must be disassembled for thorough experienced inspection

My phone Ten X500 shuts down by itself when i every i carry it in my pocket ( but with out squeezing it) & i have to reboot it every time. Is it battery problem. Thanks in advance

I am not sure if this has been solved for you, but I have had the same problem it wad due to loose pin which is designed to turn off the device when the back cover is removed. The solution to my problem was a piece of paper which I plug into the hole with the pin. SOLVED!

My x500 freez upon boot

there's a small capacitor on the eten x500 mainboard, very close to the reset button. it's a pull-down capacitor that counts tao-time for entering your unit to bootloader.

I believe this capacitor is broken, and device cannot enter to windows OS and keep the bootloader mode.

you can try to download the ETEN last rom image and try to flash it, maybe it will be the solution for you. but I guess the capacitor in the mainboard could be the real reason. that's from my technician experience..

I believed someone had entered too much inccorect passwords so it totally locked. You probably try a Hard Reset to bring the unit back to default setting but you may loose some data in it. To perform hard reset just hold the power button and reset button with your stylus at the same time and push.

CD no good

Hi Kutemba,

Thanks for asking me to be your tech buddy.

May I pls inform you that my knowledge and experience with mobile phones and PDAs would be at best described as "for personal consumption only".

In any case, it would seem that the company/website that deals with the X500 is Their support/download page is here. There is however another company/website that also deals with your unit. heir support/download page is here. Available on that page are manuals, software, Windows Mobile Upgrades (Versions 5 & 6). You need to joij as a member. Additionally, the updates require a licensed copy of WM5.

The good news is all are in English. There is also a ROM update which may be needed if the unit has firmware issues as others in your original post have posted.

Another that I would like to suggest (if you haven't tried yet) is to leave the battery off the unit at least overnight.
For the moment, try to download all related files, manuals, updates, firmware, ROM and whatever you feel would be relevant to your X500. Please create a temporary folder in your PC to house all the downloaded files.

Good luck.
