I let the battery run down and now the 5500 won't power up. The ac adapter works with my 5600, but no response with the 5500. I've tried connecting power directly to the unit as well as to the cradle. The bottom (under side) of the unit does feel warm when plugged in. What next?

- Remove the battery.
- Press D + B while you connect the AC adapter. This will bring a command line prompt.
- When you are asked to login, enter 'root' (no quotes). You need no password.
- At the root prompt (#) type 'reboot' (again, no quotes) and hit Enter. This will reboot your Zaurus and load the OS.

I don't know if this works with the SL-5500, but it works with other (clamshell) models.
