Re: Stylistic LT C500
I had a similar issue, the inverter has a component that broke, had to order a new one. I opened the unit and saw the component that broke, its a long ferrite piece that I guess acts as a capacitor. anyway, I took the part number off the board and did a search on ebay where I found one for about $25, this fixed my problem. good luck.

You may be wondering what an antiquated piece of computer's history could do for you, now in the year 2009. The answer may surprise you. This tablet has (when properly fitted) enough power and spirit to run XP, as a matter of fact it runs XP better than the included Windows 2000, or Windows 98SE. The thing makes this device a real possibility is the fact that it's so cheap! You can easily purchase one of these tablets for under $200 on ebay, fully ready to go with Windows 2000. Now... with Windows 2000 your options of what do use this for are a little more limited. The size and power of this device make it a perfect in car and on the go PC. Add a GPSUSB dongle (about $40) and Streets and Trips (about $30-$40) and you've got yourself a turn by turn navigation pc. Have alot of .mp3's? Get a FM transmitter (about $20) and you've got music in your car that you control, and it's even cheaper than an iPod. Want to watch movies on the go? Grab a slimline DVD-ROM (about $50) and hook it up to your USB port, or just get a thumb-drive (about $10) and grab those .avi's off of your PC at home. If you've got a little know how you can upgrade the puny 6gb hard drive for something with a little more space, like say 40-80gb (about $40). While your pulling it out why not upgrade to XP... and truly unlock this little tablet's potential. XP allows quicker access to USB devices, more stable program performance, and better tools for your touchscreen experience. XP install is a minor pain in the rear... but worth it in the end. To ensure the best experience upgrade your RAM to the maximum of 256mb (about $20). If your looking for something cheap, reliable, and small enough to fit in your active life, look no farther than the Fujitsu Stylistic LT c-500.
Sorry you had such a upsetting accident. Unless you're an electronics repair wizard yourself and know where to get a replacement screen I would make no attempt to fix it myself. Your warranty has just barely started.
It's a brand new unit (just came out) and you'll regret messing around with it trying to get it fixed. I suggest you adjust yourself to being without it for a week or two and get it back like new. As one who has in the (distant) past tried to repair electronics under warranty he wasn't knowledgeable to work on I can testify that the warranty route is the way to go 8^).
Patience, just think of the tablet return the way you thought about it before you bought it... anticipation!
no, it will not handle a pentium4, but you could get a much faster p3 for it. and the ram amount doesnt depend on the processor type, it depends on the motherboard and os. and it looks like 256 is the maximum ram for that model.
Hello. As far as your screen is concerned... it's one of a few issues. Let's range them worst to best case scenario. Worst case... your back-light is beginning to fail, solution is to purchase a new lcd for it... or buy one off of ebay to use as parts. Next, you could have a bad connection inside your case to your back-light, solution is to CAREFULLY open the computer up and check all of the connections. And finally, you could (I'm almost positive you've looked already) try using the < and > arrows next to the sun on the bottom right of the screen area to increase > or decrease < your brightness. Another possibility, is check when you boot up... is it bright up till the point where you load windows... and then it suddenly get dark? If so reinstall windows to fix the problem. For memory I would strongly suggest ebay. I recently purchased a 256mb chip (make sure to get the low density *works better compatibility wise*) for under 20 bucks with shipping... but make sure it's from someone who has a DOA guarantee (Dead On Arrival) so that if nothing else... you can get your money back. This memory probably won't be anything to brag to momma about... but it does the trick... I've got mine running XP on that 256mb stick. And I've never noticed my screen getting brighter or dimmer on AC power vs. battery power... but it could just be me. Hope this helps! Good luck and godspeed!
