Sounds like a graphic card issue, which is on-board, meaning you'd need to replace the whole motherboard.
Not sure if they still make parts for it, so your best bet would be to check eBay/Amazon or similar sites. A brand new one goes for $200-250, and a used one would be around $50-100 is my guess.
Good luck!

For some reason I have a CD that is labeled "Sharp Software CD-ROM OZ-590/ZQ-590". Could this be what you are looking for?

PS - I never owned one so I dont know why I have it.

This can only be caused by one of 2 things. The first being that the volume has been reduced to the lowest or the speakers are burnt out. In the first instance all you have to do is go to settings then volume control and increase the volume.
If after doing this the volume still doenst come up then the speakers need to be replaced this you will have to refer to the nearest sharp centre or local distributor near you.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

A password is to protect the phone from misuse. If you could change it then there is no use for it as anyone could change it. And I am glad that your password is working.

You cannot change it. You have to get the firmware reinstalled now to be able to use the phone. And in future please do not use the password as we all tend to forget it sooner or later.

I've been doing some research on your question. As it turns out, it seems that Windows 7 is out of the question for your Sharp Wizard OZ-730.

However, I do have some good news - if you'd like to purchase another PDA. I was able to locate a complete list of PDA devices that are compatible with Windows 7 (according to Microsoft).

Here is a link that will take you directly to Microsoft's Windows Compatibility page for PDA's. Before making your selection though, I'd do my homework and investigate fully any other problems and features you may incur or desire, respectively depending on the PDA you select. (ie.: Do you need WiFi?)

Note: There are 12 pages of devices for you to review.

Here is a review:

{ ... The most interesting feature of this organizer is that it can download additional programs. You can find plenty of existing programs on Sharp's web site Most of them are pretty basic and uninteresting, certainly not the same variety or commercial quality you would find for a Palm or Windows PDA, but they're free. You can find out more about programming it yourself at You can write your own programs for it on the PC in C or BASIC. It also supports an optional BASIC interpreter so that you can quickly write your own simple programs on the unit. The development kit and BASIC interpreter can be downloaded for free.

The PC interface is a serial port (19.2 kbps speed), a lot slower than USB, but not really a problem for the amount of memory on the unit. (But a potential problem for anyone with one of those new minimal PCs with only USB ports.)

The OZ-770PC package comes with a serial cable and Sharp backup software. The Sharp backup software is pretty basic. You can buy more expensive optional organizer software that supports it, and you can also find shareware on the web that supports it. It is capable of synchronizing with a PC database, ... }

Basically you export is as a text file, and then you can import it into something like Excel in order to convert it to a different format.

You will need 3 items to interface your Wizard with a USB port.

1. A generic USB to RS-232 adapter cable (with 9-pin serial connector, to match the connector on the OZ-730 interface cable).

2. A USB to RS-232 driver for the above cable. (If you have Windows XP: HL-340.EXE, contained in 111.rar, which can be downloaded from If you have another version of Windows, or if you have Linux, you will have to consult the documentation on to find the correct driver.

3. Software to communicate with the Wizard. You should be able to use the software that came with it, or purchase RuppLynx, or download Microsoft ActiveSync or a similar free program.

I used a cable I purchased on ebay, the HL-340.EXE driver installer, and RuppLynx software to connect an OZ-730, an OZ-570, and a Zaurus 5800 to my Windows XP laptop without any problem.

If you forget your password, there is no way to bypass the Secret function or enter a new password without losing all data marked as Secret.

If you forget your password, you will not be able to
unlock the Organizer and access your secret information. If this happens, you will have to delete the old password to be able to continue to use the Secret function. This will also delete all entries marked as secret.

The instructions on how to do this are here Page 56:
