busted my screen accidently, i think the backlight is str8 but the screen is most crack-ed. i'm starting to think i might have to try an figure out how to get a new zaurus sl-5500, becuase the name brand screens are so expensive!
it did serve well the 3 years i had it. smile.gif

so then it hit me, "hey maybe theres another manufacturer of a screen that 'would' work" but alas, it doesnt seem this way.

or maybe its time to upgrade to a new model?

so one more question!

is milkytracker running on any of the other zaurii, an if so how much do those usually go for, cuz i really dont want to pay much more than 200usd. i would really like to stick with something that has a cf 2 &/or sd slots.

thankyou, in advance!

I'm not sure where you are located, your profile does not specify.

I bought my first 5500 on ebay, and one sound channel did not work, and
there is a slight (not sure of a correct word to use) issue with the screen, that
is hardly noticable. I think it might be an attempt to remove a scratch on
the screen by the previous owner. I was going to return it, as I ordered another
5500 on ebay, but I dropped the stylus on cement, and it broke. Then I
started playing with different ROMs, and decided I'd keep the extra 5500 to
use to experiment with stuff, without making my "main" 5500 unusable, etc.
And, it was nice to have the extra cradle, power supply, and battery, in case
one failed.

At this point I never use the other 5500, and it works perfectly, other than the sound
channel, and the very slight artifact which looks like it is on the external glass.

I can try to take some pics of it, and would be willing to let it go for cheap, and/or
some SD cards, CF cards, or something else in trade as well. I would want to
keep the accessories, and possibly the battery though, so let me know if
you are interested. If it wasn't in a case, it would just be collecting dust!
