    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
tapped, but no correct
action was not
executed.
Touch screen
adjustment is incorrect.
Select , Settings,
System tab, Align
Screen to adjust the
touch screen. If the
screen alignment loses
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.

You can ask for a refund of your $9.95, if no viable solution is provided.

Try another hard whack. If that does not undo the initial damage, nada will and you have a nice paper weight.

Power Switch will not turn my Rhino 530 HCx on


When I try to turn it on it comes up with the “rino” initialization screen and buzzes/vibrates at 5 second intervals. It never goes past this screen. Occasionally, for about 1 second a small white bar will appear across the bottom saying “0%. I’ve recharged the Li battery and got the same result. I’ve tried it while connected to the charger. Same result. I’ve tried using the optional 4 AA battery pack with fresh alkaline batteries. Same result. Did the factory reboot (page/enter/power buttons). Same – except instead of a buzz/vibrate I get the tone every 5 seconds. Have to remove battery to turn off.

Contacted Garmin tech support today (10/22) - hope to hear from them soon.
