Bricked Sl-5500?
« on: April 02, 2007, 10:27:49 pm »
Symptoms:
    the charging LED doesn't turn on when plugged in
    the Zaurus doesn't turn on
    when i tried to reflash, it seemed to work, but still the charging LED did not turn on (the mail one did, though)[/li]
Ive tried reflashing, rebooting.... i just woke up one morning and it wouldn't turn on.

Do I just need a new battery? Is it Gone forever?  

Thank you.

I'd keep trying. I once thought I bricked mine, due to the power being disconnected at one point in flashing, which I have heard it said will cause a bricking, but I kept trying reflashing and after about four times, it finally reflashed successfully.

WOW! I plugged it in (out of desperation---i'd done it before, without success) and when i next looked at it, the charge LED was on! i guess there's a loose connection somewhere. Im sure glad i diddnt throw it out
