This morning I deleted around 1 Gb of music off of my sl-c3000's internal microdrive, and added another 1 Gb or so of new music. I figured that after moving so much data around that the drive would be fairly fragmented and could use some cleaning out. So I proceeded to defragment the drive with the windows defragmenter. After the drive finished defragmenting I unmounted the drive safely and removed the cable from the back of the Z. After the cable was removed the screen went blank. The Z was still on and i could tap the scrren and hear it beep. I also hit the Home and Power buttons to make sure it just didnt go into suspend. The screen did not return. So then I removed the battery cover and performed a hard reset. The console started scrolling by like normal, and the graphical "please wait a moment" screen came up. But then about halfway through the "please wait" screen the screen went blank again. The Z made the opening logon "chime" as normal too. I could still hit the OK button as if the prompt for the time and date came up and i could see the HD light flash as if it was still booting Qtopia but the screen was atill all black. Once again I could still tap the screen and hear it beep.

I'm hoping i havent screwed up the Z with a simple defragment. I can still access to OK+Power menu. I'm at work and I can perform no other testing until tonight. I am using a SL-C3000 with Kernel 18b and Cacko 1.23

Would reflashing / Zero-ing help? I can provide other details as I have the Z with me here at work.

I also have a blank screen occasionally, but figured out it is the light setting which is set to "light out" for some reason.
Try pressing Fn-4 a few times. Does this help?

OMG. Don't I feel silly. Yes Fn-4 indeed gets my screen back. I would have been pulling my hair out otherwise! Thanks!

I'm glad you got your Zaurus back to working, but I'm not really sure it's necessary to defrag the microdrive.
