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

Have you upgraded your ROM? This is the first thing! If not, go to http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/.../su_sc_home.jsp and download it!

The only thing I can think of is to remove the battery, then use a blowdryer on low heat to help evaporate any water still remaining in it before it causes any more damage. Once you think it's completely dry, pop the battery back (after drying it off) in and try to turn it on. (Note: Don't risk plugging it in for a charge for a while, as electricity and water don't usually mix.) If it turns on but the screen doesn't work, you can still recover any data on it, followed by the option of having the screen repaired or replace the PDA. If it doesn't turn on at all, pray you have a backup of the data.

It's best kept in its charger whenever possible. One of the issues with it is that the buttons tend to get "hit" and it wakes up and discharges quickly. Even on a full charge, it can drain the battery in just a few hours. The issue is worsened by the supplied case. People have noted that using another case or even gluing felt pads in just the right spots of the holder helps immensely.

you have to buy extra software to be able to print out. I got the PrintPocketCE and can now print via Infrared, Bluetooth, Wireless network and serial connections.

My problem was that the Folder which I tried to open contains a damaged File. My solution was after restoring the backup, to synchronize the mail with my desktop computer and checked the content of my mails.

the problem is based on a failure of the backup accu. This can only be fixed by a Toshiba Repair Service. They have to change a Board inside the PDA.

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.

Sorry but I think that you must choose worst scenario. You should buy “SD Wi-Fi Card”.

In my opinion you should try to make an update again after resetting of PDA.

I get a popup stating Unidentified USB Device and asks for name of the device.

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

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.

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.

Toshiba e740... | Answered on Sep 08, 2005


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.

I get much the same, but it comes and goes. For a week or two it will behave itself, then goes pop for a month or three! Do you find if you have external power (cradle or USB) that it will switch off? I also find that if I switch it off from battery power, it will switch itself back on, but then the power switch is ineffective for 6 or 7 seconds. Then you can switch it off, only to repeat the whole excercise again (and again, and again, and again...)
