My Sharp Zaurus C860 arrived during the week, and pdaXrom was installed as per: http://www.pdaxrom.org/index.php?showid=2&menuid=1

When I rebooted, the Linux operating system was eye candy at its best, and after a bit of a hack around, the system was shutdown by the command "halt".

A few hours later, I press the ON button and ... nothing but a black screen :-((

After reading all web sites and forums, all that I can do is get into a service menu by holding down keys D+M whilst plugging in the AC/DC charger.

Running through all the hardware checks on this service menu, everything seems to work OK except the battery status is LOW. Multimeter confirms that the battery is now 2.4V, and well below its normal fully charged voltage of 3.7V. However, placing the Zaurus/battery on the charger for several hours just doesn't recharge the battery !

Is the battery or the recharging circuit in the Zaurus faulty, or is there something else that I should be doing ?

Help appreciated.
