Question about Toshiba e740 Pocket PC

E740 won't turn on

Until two days ago my e740 was working near perfectly, only the usual minor problems that occur with any electronic device. however, on wednesday morning I tried to turn the unit on and it did not respond. I tried resetting it first soft then hard and then eventually it turned on only to freeze. when I pressed the power botton it did a reset once again. I mananaged to install my backup with no problems but throughout the day it kept on freezing. I have continued to have these problems today. The only way i have been able to make it that the problem does not continue is to make sure my ppc stays on, which is obviously a power drain when a plug isn't available. I think it is a battery problem.

Re: e740 won't turn on

Is there a freezing problem if the PDA is on cradle? I am not sure but it can be battery problem. I don’t know how old is your PDA but you should contact service partner and let them check the unit.

Have toshiba pda/e740, have no drivers for pc


Try going to the website of your Operating System (ie, Windows, Mac, ect). I've only used Windows , butsee if you can download the Activesync software that you need there. The e740 was only available with Windows Pocket PC 2002, and will appearantly not sync to Vista PCs, however.
I will try to check back in a day or two, so let me know if this is of any help to you.

BATTERY


It's the inside battery. The backup battery has been depleted. So you need to replace it. It can be charged, Only replaced. Now I prefer you to make a hardware reset. If you still have that message. then the battery is the problem.

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

Battery problem?


the problem is based on the backup battery and the Battery charging Electronic of the Pda. The only chance for you is to contact a Toshiba Service Partner for a repair of the Pocket PC. The Mainboard of the PDA has to be replaced.

Wi-Fi


You will not believe me but I have a similar problem. I have also Belkin router at home and wireless connection with my e800 works perfect. A few days ago I have tried to connect my PDA to wireless router of my best friend. His wireless network is protected like mine and after configuration of all settings I had no success. The funny thing is that PDA show me the status CONNECTED but I can not use the internet explorer. Like I said, at home with my Belkin it works properly. I can really not explain what the problem is.
