I have the following problem with my C750. The battery is completely empty, and it won't charge in the Zaurus, whatever I do. After approx. 5 minutes the charge LED starts blinking.
The option "Low battery" from the D+M service menu shows:
Main battery status: L
Main Bat: 2.3V ( 121)
Thrmo: 1.6V ( 130)
I now am only able to get the machine running on external power, and by doing a D+B, followed by a ./sbin/reboot command in su-mode. After that, the Zaurus is rebooting my Cacko QT nicely and (as long as on external power) working perfectly... except for any CF card inserted, that is. Is battery power crucial for the CF-IO to work?
By the way, I always thought the Zaurus didn't do anything without a battery, but this isn't the case. Just remove the battery, do the D+B trick, and reboot... no problem. The charge LED is blinking, in fact the same situation as currently charging my battery for more than 5 minutes. Can anyone of you check and confirm that, after removing the battery, the CF is still working?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have to be near an outlet all the time now!
