- The day before yesterday Hiro, my C1k, started rotating to portrait every time I turned him on. Today, the keyboard stopped working, and won't respond even after popping the battery.
- I pressed the little switch that tells the Z it's screen has been folded down, and it seems that is working only intermittently, so it thinks it should go to portrait because the switch isn't right.
- I've no clue on the keyboard. It's just dead.
- Otherwise the unit appears to work perfectly. Touch screen, backlight, expansion slots, USB, everything works like a charm.
- Any hints on what I might do to troubleshoot this? I'm thinking disassembly, but don't want to just rip into it without a plan of action.
- After reading about the production stop, I'm wondering if Hiro isn't just depressed. (wry grin) Thanks for your time...

EDIT: Aha! They are one in the same. The portrait mode switch disables the keyboard. I'm still thinking dismantle and clean, and I'm still soliciting input...
