Question about Toshiba e740 Pocket PC

Power fault

I have been having problems starting my e740 recently. in the morning i try to turn it on but it just simply won't eventually it comes on but does not stay on, it freezes, and resets if the power botton is pressed. the only time that the unit will stay on is if it is plugged in. I am wondering if it is a power problem related to the battery not being able to keep a charge.

In y opinion there must be some problem with battery power supply. In my opinion you should contact service partner. I hope that your unit has still valid warranty.

Good morning, I have the Hyundai hp4200 which will not turn on, when you switch on it clicks then 2 minutes later clicks again to onto I guess standbye. However, if you turn it on and off by the socket...


Yep, I can help but I am afraid that I won't be able to bring totally good news.

The TV is in forced standby also called "protection". Protection kicks in when an internal fault such as a short (big power draw) or a wrong voltage is detected. The click comes from a relay activated by the protection circuit to force TV to shut down.

All you can do is disconnecting the power cord, checking if there is a fuse built in the power cord, replacing fuse and connecting back after about 30 minutes (that allows power drain). If the TV does not work there are faulty internal parts that need replacement.

If now the TV does not start at all, and not even the standby light is on, then the problem is usually the PSU. The part must be tested and eventually replaced.

My sony stays on standby some times mostly in the mornings


It's probably staying late at night and is sleepy in the morning :-)

Seriously, it is likely related to the temperature.

It is a common problem with power boards where filter capacitors start to dry out; higher temperature helps them function properly and you will find advices to try a heat blower at the back on the TV to test this theory.

Unfortunately, there are also other parts that may be causing the same effect. I say unfortunately because they are usually harder to pinpoint and resolve.

I had a TV in shop recently which was behaving exactly like that and after turning around the power board I eventually ended up replacing the main board. The problem was solved and it certainly wasn't caused by filter caps, I made very sure of that.

My advice is have a pro look at it. If I am correct the problem will expand and it will start getting delayed more and more over time, not only in the mornings.

Flashing orange light generally indicates battery low charge could be your battery at fault
the next time you try and power on and it doesnt work, take the battery out (unplug AC) and try to run just on AC power
hope helps, let me know if can help further

Hard starting


hi if the engine light comes on you need to get the diagnostic tester to find out what the fault code is otherwise finding the fault can be a bit hit or miss and end up costing you more money then it might have you had the engined tuned [seviced] as this is the first thing to get done its the basics then look deeper if need be yates210456

Toshiba E740 Power Problem


Hi, I noticed that the firmware that you have is not the latest, the last provided was 1.0623.049 which was released a few years ago. I would install this, in addition to the other patches from the Toshiba web site. Hopefully this will overwrite any software quirks for you. regards, Keith

BT Problem Battery/Power Problem


In my opinion it is always very risky to buy some second hand unit because you can not be sure if every hardware component works properly. The best solution for you is to contact service partner and let them check the PDA. It is also possible that power supply electronic has some malfunction
