It's been awhile since I've frequented this forum, but I am coming around to the fact that my Z is gathering dust as of late.
1 SL-C1000 with screen protector installed
1 Japanese compact AC adapter
1 US bulkier adapter
Decent battery. Currently is running with Cacko. I bought it that way about 1.5 years ago and though I have added apps I have never reflashed or anything like that. I will do my best to depersonalize the device, but I am leaving that particular OS on there.
Some scuffs and minor scratches on the lid from regular use. The screen looks great as it has always had a protector on it. There is a small dimple in the lid top on one side. It does not affect motion and swivel of the lid and the screen is fine. It's been like that since I bought it.
I'd like to get $225 plus shipping to the US. No international buyers please. It's too much of a hassle. The unit will ship in it's original box as well. I'd like to see someone get some use out of it rather than have it sit in a drawer. I've actually been using my Newton more than anything else of late!

Lately I have noticed that my speaker is intermittently on and off when I use my Z. If I press a bit with my thumb right next to the speaker grille the sound comes back. When I let up, it's gone again.
I get the feeling that there's a loose connection at the speaker itself, probably something that just needs a good crimp. Is disassembly a pain for this? Am I on the right diagnostic track here?
I'd hate to be soundless. The headphone jack works great. Without the speaker I can't use my Z as a reliable alarm clock or pager pest.

Recently I tried to mount the Z's SD card portion of it's storage as a disk on my PowerBook's Desktop. I am running OS 10.4.x. When I set up the Z (under Cacko) and hook it up using the appropriate cable I get visual feedback on the Z's screen that communication is in progress, but on the Mac end of things all Hell breaks loose.
After a lot of spinning beachball time, I end up with at least a dozen mounted HD's representing my Z....And it does not stop. It keeps mounting volume after volume. I can eventually horn in and open one of the disk and slowly copy everything at USB 1.1. Then I have to either restart, or try to unmount all of these rogue volumes.
So, what am I doing wrong, or is this something unique to Macs, or Cacko?

What do you all think? It's chock full of specs!
Compatible out of the box with the C series or Cacko?
Is it a good buy? Any other possibilities?

Just got a secondhand SL-C1000 in the mail 2 days ago. At first all was well.
Love my Z to pieces...I used it all day yesterday. Off and on, some reading, some games, music, movies, etc. The batteries crapped out late last night so I gave it a charge. Now today, the unit doesn't seem to hold a charge for me for more than a minute.
I have tried rebooting, and playing around with the power and MHz settings to no avail. I have also plugged it in and inspected, and reinserted the battery.
All of a sudden, my Z cannot hold a charge. What's going on? Why would this happen out of the blue after HOURS of battery use?
I would hate to thing that I have a lemon. First Googling results in little info about bad batteries on the SL-C1000 series. Just the usual stuff about SL-C5500's.
I am currently running Cacko 1.23.
All works fine on AC. The adapter is EA-72.
