C860. I can't seem to get into maint. menu. I do:

1) Remove battery for several seconds.
2) Reinsert battery.
3) Hold D+M
4) Power on.

Nothing - boots into Cacko. Any thoughts?

First, leave the battery out longer. Try 5-10 minutes.

If that fails, pull the battery & leave it out. Let the machine set a while. Hold D+M while plugging the AC adapter plug into the power jack. The C860 will not even attempt a "normal" boot with the battery out but it WILL (in my experience) boot the diags menu. Put the battery in & flip the lock switch once you get in the menu.

If THAT fails, do the same thing except hold Fn+D+M. This gets a slightly different service menu, but there are steps to get back to the regular one & then reboot. I'll have to check my notes if you need to do this route.

Let us know how it works.

Actually what I do seems to work every time.

Remove battery.

Wait 5 seconds or so.

Place two fingers on D+M and hold with thumb on other side of Z.

Insert battery and flick the battery lock catch.

Z should now be in service menu so you can release the buttons.

You don't even need to bother locking the battery, so long as D and M are pressed when any form of power is applied it'll go straight to the service menu.

*WARNING* You can damage your zaurus permanently with some of the options in the Service Menu, only use it if you're confident you know what you're doing (just covering my back smile.gif)
