I can get to the D+M menu without the battery. Now what?
NOW you need to proceed VERY slowly & VERY carefully. Sharp does not tell users much about these menus because they do NOT want us to use them at all! Because the wrong option can REALLY screw up your machine! Be WARNED! CAUTION!
Think TWICE. DOUBLE check what you are about to do before you actually DO it! If you are carefully, no harm will happen.
These instructions are for the C860. I can not verify them identical for any other machine.
That said, you need a good NAND file for YOUR SPECIFIC TYPE OF MACHINE on media (preferably CF). The CF should be the default formatted file system just like they come, FAT16, or the NAND may not be usable even if the file is good.
Get the D+M menu set. ALWAYS USE AC while attempting NAND restore! Use the up arrow key from the first menu to get menu SERVICE (3/3). The 7th option there should be the EXTRA MENU.
Arrow to that option, DOUBLE CHECK that it is the one highlited then ENTER. You should now see the EXTRA MENU. The 3rd option should be NAND FLASH RESTORE. Arrow down to it & DOUBLE CHECK that it is the one highlited then ENTER.
You should now be starting the NAND RESTORE selection process. At any point, the BACKSPACE key should escape back to the last level upwards. ONCE AN NAND RESTORE BEGINS, LEAVE THE MACHINE COMPLETELY ALONE TILL THE GREEN BAR FULLY CROSSES THE SCREEN & YOU GET THE OK COMPLETION MESSAGE.
Once the restore completes & you see the message, press the BACKSPACE key to return back to the EXTRA MENU. Now VERY VERY CAREFULLY arrow to option 9, which should be RESET. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES MISTAKE & CLICK OPTIONS 7 OR 8 OR 10 OTHERWISE YOU RISK MAKING YOUR Z A PAPERWEIGHT!
When RESET is highlited use the ENTER key. Your machine should power off immediately. Screen off & dark. NOW restart the machine.
If the NAND restore went OK, you should have the full OS just like the machine that made the NAND backup image. A bit by bit clone entirely.
If any step does not look like it should STOP & POWER OFF THE MACHINE IMMEDIATELY.
And I strongly suggest that you take Streamline Stephen's advice and download & review that manual!!
Post the results here, please (G).
