When I turn on my 6000, the display is black. This happened after a week of low battery warnings even though I had it on the charger, and after I dropped it. I tried taking the battery out for a while and reinserting it; hard resetting it with reset while haolding the OK butteon; holding Q and T while resetting. I tried removing the battery overnight, then pressing D and B and plugging in the power; also, holding Fn, D, and M while pressing reset. The charging light comes on and something beeps when I did a hard reset. The display seems to change to a different shade of black when I try to trun it on but nothing that I can use.

Did I do damage to the screen when I dropped it or is it a used-up battery? I had its Piel Frama case on when dropped and I've dropped it before without a problem. If it's the screen, what can I do to repair it? If it's just the battery, I can replace it.

Know this is an old thread, but have a couple comments anyhow. First, the manual clearly states that the unit will not power on if the battery is low. So, I think we have to wait until the charging light goes off, indicating that charging has been completed, before you try turning it on.

Second, I've had serious battery problems on my sl5500 because of droppage, finally figured out it's just the internal connectors for the AC adapter plug. Will be writing a lot about this in my blog when I can take the time.

So, I'd suggest trying to charge a unit fully using the docking station as an alternative, to see if that makes a difference, especially if you drop your Z while it's plugged in to the adapter.

I'm concerned about their statement in manual that Tosa will not turn on if battery low. That could be serious after there aren't any batteries being made, if it won't even turn on when on AC adapter, if I understand them right, it's planned obsolescence.
