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!

thanks for the reply! im curious where the mark on the screen is? more than likely i would be able to fix the audio jack problem, an if not then i could transfer the screen to mine.

thanks again smile.gif

I'm unsure as to whether it is just an audio jack problem. I posted a question
a long time ago, probably in the 5500 hardware forum, asking if anyone has
ever had and cured this problem. I opened up the unit, and the jack is very
hard to get to, without taking a lot of other things off. I thought it might be just
a bent prong on the jack, but the way it is mounted on the board, I gave up.
I then remember seeing someone post an audio problem, possibly with a
Cxxx model, and it appeared to be one of the ICs.

I will try to snap a picture of the screen soon, but my camera is only 640x480 so
I am not sure how well that will work out... If I forget, reply or PM me in a day
or so, to remind me. I have a lot of other stuff to do today...
