Full Version: Zaurus 5600 Dead?

Hello!

A very sad thing happened to my Zaurus 5600 (or I just do not know what to do). I have decided to reflash OpenZaurus 3.5.2 - since I wanted a clean installation. I have done this a few times already without any problems. But now it is different.

The upgrade went just fine - flashing... 100%... please reboot or so.

After the upgrade - when I try to boot - the screen is blank, no light, no anything. Ok - let us flash again. But when I chose "upgrade form CF" from the menu - the behaviour is the same - the screen is blank and nothing happens! I have tries with 2 different CF cards. And nothing. Also if I chose from the maintenance menu "check for errors" of "format" - the result is exactly the same again.

I am affraid that the internal memory/disk is dead. Or am I missing something? What can I do?

I will be thankful for ANY advice - it would be a great pity to lose my Zaurus and certainly I will not have any money to buy a new one for a few years...

many thanx in advance

Try taking the battery out for about 15min. Put it back in and hit the reset buttion. Only thing I can think of.

If that doesn't work, a NAND restore likely would, but I am not aware of how to do this, unfortunately. (Haven't figured out how to access the diagnostic menu).

to access the diagnostic menu you have to press D + P + reset.

NAND seemed to be a problem - it helped to clear NAND to get rid of crc errors. but now I am stuck without nand :-( so somehow nand got corrupted during the flash and there was really no way out.

If anyone could send me (rumcajs2 at fotoforum.pl - or make available via www or ftp) a nand backup for sl5600 pxa250 - it would be more than great. My brick still has some breath but it is still a brick. It however passes all the tests in the diagnostic menu.

many thanx - michal
