Yes, you can but it might it will probably be costly to buy a used motherboard. I suggest just buying a new or used PDA at ebay very cheap. Prices for PDA are now very cheap.

The power went off on my dell dimension 4700 and i press the power button and it will not come on. What can I do?

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect or boot up your hard drive

Test all leads that attach from the ((motherboard to your hard drive)) including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

I have a 50.2 fuser erro on our Color Printer HP 4700

The 50.2 code on nearly all HP laser based machines including your 4700 means you have a fuser error. The fuser unit is the assembly that heats up and "fuses" the toner onto the paper. There are a few things you can try including, power cycle the printer and see whether the code resets or try reseating the Fuser Unit. Neither of these will resolve the issue in most cases. Most of the time fuser unit replacement is necessary.
Here is a link for you to see pricing and a picture for your fuser unit. You may want to just buy your own fuser and replace it if your are mechanically inclined. If not you can have a local printer repair shop replace it for you. At least they won't rip you off on the price of the fuser unit. Note that there may be some cheaper prices out there on this unit.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My 4700 hp printer is double printing and giving a replace transfer kit notice

This means you'll have to replace the transfer kit because it is "end of live". This also causes the printing problems. The transfer unit is the big black unit you'll find when you open the front cover.

Hx4700 wont work after failed update on ROM v1.10

Try hard reset: pressing and holding the calendar and iTask buttons and doing a soft reset for 2 seconds.

Hard resetting a WM 5 HX 4700 is to press and hold the Contacts and Mail buttons and then doing a soft reset. The boot screen will popup with a message “To perform a clean reset, which will clear all data in memory, press the [Calendar] button”

If that fails, try upgrading to wm 6 or wm 6.1 then downgrading afterwards.

I've upgraded from wm2003SE to wm6.1 alkor rc2.2 rom.

Hx4700 not sync all items in calendar

So make sure that you are displaying all categories.... If while on Calendar screen, you click on Tools, Categories... then all category boxes shown , should NOT be checked. If any of them are checked, then you will only be seeing that category of appointments.
