Hi,
yesterday i bought a used simpad slc and spend nearly all free time with it. Unfortunately its 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

still getting worse...

Using serload, ive installed the blupdater.img

After reset first everything looks fine. The linux penguin showed up! But after a while, it told me to connect the AC-Power to continue. I was a little bit confused, because it is and has been connected...

So I used hyperterminal with 38400 8N1 and was very asthonised to see, that whatever happens seems to be a mix of linux and the original bl? First the normal bl shows up. Then linux starts to unpack. But this part of the output is also mixed with parts of the output from the original BL??? there are also parts of the menu where you can erase the flash... ??? the programm stops with the message "unknown command"

By the way: using Hyperterminal whit 115200 8N1 doesnt work, btw. shows only nonsens when i hit the keyboard...

Im a little bit frustrated. It would be very nice, if anyone has any idea whats the problem with this unit...

Next step will be soldering the parallel adapter and trying to reflash the original quiet old siemens boot loader...

Greetings
