My Sharp electronic dictionary has developed horizontal and vertical lines on the screen and therefore I am unable to read the text displayed on the screen. I tried changing the battery too but still the...

I had this problem after the unit was dropped on the floor. I had nothing to lose, so I pried the cover off the back of the screen with my fingernails. You can see the grooves on the edges to pry it off. It just snaps back on. Inside I found a circuit board with 3 black pillow-looking things and a bunch of tiny solder joints, all marked by tiny numbers. Joint number C503 wiggled like a loose tooth, indicating a less than perfect union. I wiggled it with my finger and caused all kinds of weirdness on the screen, as well as some instances of perfect clarity. I occasionally had to push the reset button on the bottom to see the screen again, but not always. I eventually wiggled the joint just right and the screen looked great. With that, I snapped the back cover on, and it has been fine since. One line on the extreme right end, but I can live with it. If the problem comes back to where I can't read the screen contents, I may take it to a local electronics repair shop and ask someone to re-do that one solder joint. Like I said, I've got nothing to lose.
So far, repairs have been free.

The Franklin NIV 450 Holy Bible-New International Version The words on the monitor are not very clear. I can't read.

not sure if you have checked this or not but on most electronics of this type there is typically a contrast control. It can be as simple as adjusting the contrast on the display.

Function button not working, cannot get bible to recognize numerals, thus cannot go to 1 corinthians 1 for example, it reads Q Corinthians Q

Remove the five screws from the back of the Bible, gently separate the front from the back of the Bible with a flat blade screwdriver. Note, when the Bible is apart be as careful as you have ever been in your life with the display and especially with the flat cable connected to the display, or you might accidentally cause a void line to permanently appear in the display when you get it back together. Gently remove the rubber keypad. Take a Q-tip swab or two with some rubbing alcohol and gently clean all of the black contacts on the back of the keypad and also where the contacts touch against the circuit board. Make sure that you clean every one of them leaving no specs of dust or cotton on anything. Also leave none on or near any part of the display or window or you will be looking at these for the next ten years while you read the powerful Word of God. This has worked for me several times, but I own three of them, and still have the first one I purchased new about twenty years ago. The Frankin KJB-640 is by far the best electronic Bible ever made and nothing has since come remotely close. KJB stands for King James Bible. Any other so called version belongs in the garbage can. Trust me on this one, and read the Bible daily, or continue being completely miserable for the rest of your life.

The display of my SHARP PWE550 digital dictionary has become distorted.Several vertical lines appear on the screen where the text is missing.


Mine also has vertical lines in sharp and this the 2nd time I buy this device because of this problem. It seems that the problem is from the joint data cable where we keep open and close the cover.

I don't recommend you buy another one because i threw 2 of them because of this problem - although sharp dictionary is the best among others concerning the definitions.

Thank you.
