20 Most Recent Toshiba e740 Pocket PC Questions & Answers

My suggestion would be to hook it up to an external monitor and see what happens during the boot, if you get a screen showing up there then your screen is damaged, if not then you may have other problems, for instance if the power cable was in at the time, then the power connector is easily broken. When dropping a laptop, many problems can be created, including damaged hard drive to name one. You need a repair centre that has the correct diagnostic tools to find the problem. Keeping in mind the fix may not be worth the cost as these are so cheap these days.

have a suspicion that this whole issue revolves around the fact that the E740 uses a ML1220 coin-type lithium manganese dioxide rechargeable battery which is a 3V battery using specially treated manganese dioxide for the positive material, a lithium-aluminum compound for the negative material, and a specially formulated organic electrolyte. This is found under the left lower cover set on it's edge and like a home PC is I believe the CMOS battery which is rated at 1,000 cycles of discharging to 10% of nominal capacity (Depth of discharge = 10%). The total discharge capacity is quite high at 100 times nominal capacity. Supplies a nominal capacity of about 95% even when stored at 20 deg. C for roughly five years according to accelerated test conducted by Maxell). And since organic electrolyte is used, the battery has superior leakage resistance (shipped fully charged). I have the same issue with my unit and decided to open it up and find out about this battery. I am almost certain that this battery is no longer holding a charge and therefore always crashing an resetting. I have had the same experience with my old Handspring unit as well as an old PC. I would appreciate hearing from Toshiba or anyone else where one can acquire a replacement ML1220 as it is only supplied to manufacturers and not consumers.

Either a bad battery, or the charger is faulty?

Are you using a headphone or the Pda's speaker?

The speaker could be damaged or disconnected - try connecting a headphone to the Pda to see if the sound works.

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.

Generally you can't.

Could be a failing touch screen. Have you tried a reset ? You may lose data in memory though.

Power off the system and wait a few seconds to make sure that hard drive has spun down.

Hold down the "Backspace" key while powering on system.

The following message should appear:
Warning: Can't restore Hibernated State.

Press any key to continue.

After pressing a key on the keyboard, the system will continue with the boot process and the hibernation/standby mode will be by-passed.

The Toshiba Pocket PC e740 is shipped with an Enabled security feature, which switches off the batteries. In order to be able to turn on the unit, the Battery Switch must be in a battery "Supply" position. Please check if the Battery Switch is in a Stop position or Supply position. The Battery Switch can be found on the lower right edge of the unit, next to the "Cradle Connection Port". Please see the below diagram The Battery Switch supplies or stops power to the Pocket PC. When using the Pocket PC for the first time, slide this switch to the left with the stylus pen. If you have further questions, please refer to the Instruction Manual page 2-4 (21 of 182).
