Hi,
yesterday i bought a used simpad slc and spend nearly all free time with it. Unfortunately itīs out of order from the beginning.

After connecting the power supply, there are coloured lines all over the display and after some seconds one can see a bluescreen and nothing else happens, no sound or anything else...

I am not shure what this means. Is the mainboard death? Is it a bootloader or anything else problem, that can be fixed by spending time on it?

Please help me out...

Thx in advance, Silvester

ok, I tried again. First coloured lines, after a few seconds bluescreen. After 15 Minutes I pushed the battery switch. same effect, first lines, then blue screen. nothing else. :-(

But if its normal for the simpad to boot this way, itīs perhaps a problem while booting. How can I find out? Should I try to solder a serial Adapter? If so, which one? The one with the lundberg Adaptor or direct connection between parport and Simpad?

Greetings Silvester

Hi Silvester,

you need a serial cable -> http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?s=&...st&p=174015.

If your pc run windows (98SE, 2k, XP...), try hyperterminal 38400 baud 8N1 and look
for messages from siemens bootloader.

If bootloader is okay and only your hpc2000/wince image is broken then reflash should help.
But for this you need the serial cable first.

Regards,
mrdata

Finally the Siemens Data cable arrived... resolderd it, trying to avoid hurting myself too much and:

I followed this instructions:

http://www.silentservices.de/simpad/simpad-install-howto.txt

and this is the result:

Siemens Switzerland Bootloader V2.5.3 10.06.2003
Running @206Mhz Processor ID 0x6901b119

I then tired to install the german ce4.0 image, following this instructions again:

http://www.silentservices.de/simpad/simpad-install-howto.txt

everything seems fine until the last reset. I get coloured lines and after a few seconds a blue screen.

Any ideas? Perhaps the bootloader is damaged?
