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 would need a decent digital camera to be able to provide a picture of the
LCD screen that illustrates the issue with that 5500 LCD screen. It took me
about 15 seconds to find it, that's how insignificant it is. There is a very slight
"buffing" that appears to have been done, probably in an attempt to remove
a tiny scratch by the previous owner. It seems to cast a shadow onto the LCD
panel a little bit, slightly darkening an oval area about half the width of a
pencil eraser, and about as tall as one.

In the 2 snapshots below look for a slight darkening within the boundaries of
the "Opera" icon... It is near the top right part of the "O" in Opera.
By the way, I forgot how simple/stable/predicatble the SHARP
ROM was, as I have not seen it in a while. I loaned this to a friend for a while,
and he did not even take it out of the case.
