    That's what I thought - I already said it is several years old (not under warranty). I just paid $9.95 for nothing!!

  • friesenb Jul 23, 2008

    Where could I even get this fixed now - Toshiba has gone out of the PDA business.???

  • friesenb Jul 24, 2008

    I have been advised to "get it fixed" - my Toshiba e405. It has colored lines only - no meaningful symbols visible.

    This does not seem like an "expert" answer, and I don't think it's worth $9.99. How do I get my money back?

  • friesenb Jul 24, 2008

    No, I only have colored lines on the display, I can't "tap" anything. This answer is not responsive.

  • friesenb Jul 24, 2008

    No, I don't think it's the screen and I don't think it's the motherboard, because there is evidence that it is "syncing." I just can't see a display.

    I suspect it is a video card or video chip - can't replace it myself.

    Yes, I agree, it's probably time to buy a new PDA.

  • friesenb Jul 24, 2008

    OK, I think my PDA is dead, then. It's not worth trying to replace the motherboard.

    for cheaper deals look around ebay

  • Ekse Jul 23, 2008

    It may also be a problem in the mainboard if the screen is not faulty.

  • Ekse Jul 23, 2008

    if you hear sound from the pda that would indicate that the screen is faulty, and replaceing the screen should solve the problem unless there is a fault in the motherboard.

    seems the toshiba of yours doesn't cost much.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Toshiba-e405-PDA-Poc...



    not sure if its worth the 20-40 usd display replacement?

  • Ekse Jul 24, 2008

    that ebay bidding will end in about a hour though so you need to hurry if you want that one, instead of replaceing the screen, which might not fix the problem if theres a fault in the mainboard.

  • Ekse Jul 24, 2008

    Are you not able to see my solution?

  • Ekse Jul 24, 2008

    The video is build into the motherboard and it can't be replaced you have to replace the whole motherboard.

  • Ekse Jul 28, 2008

    If the screen is faulty you can order a replacement from ebay, from the links I have posted earlyer.

Sounds like the display ribbon cable is out of place .
The device must be taken apart and cable or connector fixed, or LCD display replaced.

    Well, your PDA hardware is faulty, what do you expect this is not someting that you can fix adjusting settings, you really will have to take to a shop unless you want to try DIY at your risk.
    If you want to do it yourself I can find tutorials for taking apart the PDA.
    If you are not expert doing this I think you need to go to a repair shop.

    Note , on your PDA video card or video chip are integrated on board. What is faulty is not the integrated video adapter, it is the LCD, it is the cable or the display itself.

    Before getting rid of your PDA ask price for repair at a local shop, the LCD is not an expensive part, and if it is the cable you pay repair only (about $60/$80). It may still be worth a go.

The screen was

executed.
Touch screen

Select , Settings,

calibration it may not
be possible to adjust
alignment using the
above method. In that
case, the Align Screen
command can be
executed by
simultaneously
pressing the power
button and scroll
button.

It can be microphone problem that is why the person you're trying to talked can't hear you,some can be done on software programming,other can be fix it by replacing the mic component. But i prefer to use your warranty card and get free charge of it,or if its no HTC service center near you,try to ask assistance to any mobile service shop preferably.DIY is not advisable for android phones,you might brake something and fixing this type of mobile is to complicated.

I´ve a pda hp h5455 that don´t start , i´ve tried to do a hard reset and charge it via USB and nothing hapens


To do the hard reset, while on battery (NOT A/C) power, hold down the two outside front-panel buttons (Calendar and iTask), While holding them, press the reset button with the stylus. Keep these buttons all pressed until the image on the screen begins to fade (about 4 seconds), then you can release the reset and application buttons. To restart your iPAQ, you must then plug the unit into A/C power, or do a Soft Reset by again, pressing the reset button with the stylus.

Reset login on sidekick lx


ollow the steps below to clear the datastores off and simulate a hard reset:
- Reboot the device by pressing @+1+0
- IMMEDIATELY press and hold the 'R' key on the keyboard. Continue to hold the 'R' key down
- The device will reboot, and when the initial boot screen (the 4 face buttons animation shows) displays, the screen will clear and the device will reboot again.
- Let go of the 'R' key at this point, and the device will reboot with no datastores, and force a resync.

Bios patch download failure


Hi,
I always try to resolve things the simplist solution First, so please don,t rate this Post. Until i have had a chance to resolve your Problem Here.
Initially i,d have suggested that if the pc ( easier to refer to ) than the long-winded Pocket pc Or Ipaq.
Was set on a power saver mode, i.e turn off after 30 minutes if using on Battery Power. Or Similar.
My suggestion for you initially, is To Try the most obvious First. Hard-Reset. you can refer to your user Manual to Attempt This.
some are a simple, reset button located at the Bottom of the pc, others require several buttons to be pushed at the Same Time.

If this does,nt work, i can offer you a repair service a quarter of the price you,ve been quoted by the mentioned company, if your UK Based.

PDA displays only a white Screen


I recently replace my lcd and initially had that problem.  I fixed it by reseating the cable that connects the motherboard to the main phone piece.  (its the cable that is about 1/2 an inch wide and is very short, barely wraps around motherboard).  Reseat that and your white screen issue should be fixed)
