Question about Toshiba e405 Pocket PC

2 Answers

Last week, I couldn't get the screen to respond to tapping. I had to disconnect the battery to get it to work again. I had to do that once this week too. Now, power won't come on when I press the on button; then the screen comes up for a second with the initial screen, then goes off. It's done it a few times in the past couple minutes. Is this just the battery or the whole unit?

    Software is corrupt, but no PC will recognize the PDA when it's connected and I don't have original CD. How do I fix software?

Hi,

There could be Few Possibilities.

1. Battery Connectors. Take a Clean Cotton and Cleaning Solution and Clean the Battery Connectors.

2. If the problem remains Unresolved, then we need to Check Battery.If you have a Multimeter, check the reading. Make sure that it should not be Zero. If it is Zero, then the Battery is at Fault.

3. Other than this, Few Reports were there for Firmware or Display IC's Problem which needs to be taken care by the Technician.

I am sorry, but it could be any one of the above.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Oops i never read the comment!!

    If Software ( Firmware ) is at Fault, you need to Contact the Service Center or a Technician who could re-flash the software for you. Firmwares for these Models are not available online.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks

    I already asked Toshiba's technicians and help centers; they won't do anything; they stopped supporting the systems.

    Thanks for your response!!

    Try to catch someone outside the Center. There are certain ways like Upgrading the Firmware that could Fix that.

    Look for a Local Mobile Repairman. That would be the last resort.Without that, there is nothing that could be done.I wish i could have a better solution :(

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks
    for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hello,

the problem shouldn't be from the battery, it should be from the unit. I believe the unit's software is corrupt that's why it won't boot up. There is virus on the unit, that is, a software corruption, that's why its malfunctioning.

To be sure where the real fault is coming from, test the unit with another battery, and if it does the same way, then you will be sure the problem is from the unit, but if the unit functions well after putting another battery, then its a battery problem.

Don't battery another battery yet, borrow battery from someone in other to test the unit, so that you won't be at loss if its not a battery problem.

Good luck.

2003 accoed won't start. It just clicks and the KEY dash light comes on. Has new battery and was driven to house and parked last week. won't jump start either.


try tapping your starter it sounds to me that it is bad and may need to be replaced if tapping it makes it respond then it is bad if not then you can have a bad fusible link or a master fuse has blown.

Won't Work suddenly.


What is happening when you turn the device on? Does it go on and then shut off? If so you will have to reformat the drive for the mp3 player. Simply plug the mp3 player in and click the drive that appears for the player. It should say this device needs to be formatted. Then just follow the steps. Keep in mind you will lost your songs. If the device stays on, do you see your first song on the list. If you do, try pushing the play button, (very last one on bottom) hard.
