My SL-C1000 has just completely done dead on me. I was wondering if this had happened to anyone else. It was working perfect on a recent trip, and I came back home and then put it on the shelf. I now try to start it, and there is no response at all...just a dead black screen.

I've of course tried to remove the battery, recharge it, etc. There is the tiniest little rattling sound, which would imply that it had suffered an impact or something. The problem is, I don't remember ever dropping it! There are also no exterior signs of damage...its in great condition.

Has anyone had this issue before? Do you think if I sent it back to Japan they might fix it?

I'm trying to get a few Java-based applications to work on my Zaurus SL-c1000. I had assumed that with Cacko 1.23 installed, Java applications would run fine on the Zaurus.

I've just come to notice that Zaurus applications that DONT work have a tendency to be Java-based. I've checked the install notes and don't see anything about adding additional Java libraries, etc. When launched they just pause, then do nothing. Here's a short list:

Java Based Journal
Shh Tetris
Zen Garden 1.0

Also I'm not quite sure how to install other types of applications that do not come as *.IPK files. Like for example zs710, or Cinderella...what kind of process do you need to get applications like that installed? Sorry for the stupid questions!

I'm a former Pocket PC and Palm user and I just purchased my first Sharp SL-C1000. I love the unit and have no regrets. I installed Cacko 1.23, which is top notch. I also successfully synched with Outlook 2000 on the PC (note it doesn't work at all with 2003).

However there is one problem: I can't find any good 3rd party applications for the Zaurus! After reading extensive reviews on the unit I expected most of the applications found in the Zaurus Software Indexes to be compatible. But 90% of them aren't really compatible, at least in 640x480 Landscape mode. Many of them will crash my C1000, and virtually all of them run in this very bizzarre low res portrait mode, which is awkward to say the least. Working in high-res landscape mode is really the reason I bought the unit.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Or perhaps has someone compiled a list of good applications that work in VGA Landscape mode? Notable exceptions are:

SAFEDEE...works perfect in Landscape Mode
CLOVERPAINT...does not work in Landscape mode but its a nice program and good implementation.

I'm looking for a good PDF reader...and not too much else maybe an outliner or financial program.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
