Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

3 Answers

Hello: I have the TI PocketMate 400 organizer. I have really loved this organizer and have had it for over 10 years, however I have a problem. The Organizer had been working fine. I received a low battery notation however I was not able to change the batteries and when I turned on the organizer the screen was completely blank and the organizer did not display any information nor did it respond to any keystrokes. Subsequently I changed the batteries for the organizer. I removed both of the batteries at the same time and then replaced them with new batteries. When I turned the organizer on with the new batteries the entire display showed black "squares" across the whole display and all the function indicators (ie., Reminders, Addresses, etc.) were also present. I was able to synchronize the organizer to my PC and the details box on the PC showed that several addresses were added. Now when I turn on the organizer on I briefly see "synchronization complete" and then the screen reverts to the all black boxes I noted above and the organizer does not respond to any of the keys. Can you please help me. One solution might be to reset the organizer but there does not seem to be a reset button. In reading the manual it notes to never remove both batteries at once which I did when I replaced both of the batteries at once. I'd appreciate any solution that you can offer since I really like this organizer however TI discontinued this organizer in 1997 and it is not available anywhere (including ebay). Thanks for any help you can provide. Sincerely, Zel Dolinsky

It has to do with the contrast of the screen and has to be reset.
Solution:
1.Turn on power and press Enter.
2.Operate the cursor down till the screen brightens up enough.
3.Press another menu ie notes, now the contrast options for display are set.

That's all

Zel,

Are you still interested in a PocketMate 400? I have two or three of them, with at least one in perfect working order, all it needs is a battery.

Hi,

I also like the PM-400, especially its long battery life & simple RS232 interface. I have several much more expensive PDAs that simply aren't as practical, fast & rugged as the PM-400!

Unfortunately, several years ago my first PM-400 died with symptoms similar to those you describe. I did find another PM-400, and continue to use it to this day.

Good luck,

JWC

I believe organ hasn't been played or even turned on in over 10 years. The top keyboard plays if I turn on a setting such as piano or trumpet however I can't just get the organ keys to play.


Since the organ has not been used for a long time, I suspect that there can be degradation of the electronics, specially with electrolytic capacitors. hence I request you to switch on the Organ continuously and allow it to warm up, it there is improvement , then it will be worth to remove the bottom panel and clean up the boards,dry the PCB with a hair dryer and reconnect the boards.
Hope this will help.

I have a 10 year old and Id like to give him a nutrition bar for school. What nutrition bars do you recommend?


There are some nutrition bars that are made specifically for the dietary needs of children. Personally, I give my 12 year old son Clif Kid Zbar and he really likes it! Most importantly, these bars are very healthy, as they are 95% organic and contain 12 essential vitamins and minerals.

Hello, I have owned a TI-84 for four years now and it has never given me problems until recently. The buttons do not work when I type something, nothing shows up and if it does it takes about 10 seconds.


The pads under the buttons are worn out over years of use, the only thing I can suggest is take it apart and attempt a cleaning with a Q-Tips and rubbing alcohol, " a long shot "

Pictures are not turning out REBEL Ti


If your film's ISO speed is relatively high (say, above ISO 200 or 400) and you're shooting in bright light, your camera's shutter/aperture won't be able to compensate for the light. In that case, using a slower film is the solution.
