Help Me!
« on: August 01, 2004, 05:05:46 pm »
I know it was stupid, but yes I dismantled my zaurus. However I idiotically didn't fit the screws from the sliding keyboard in right, and whilst on holiday noticed that 3 of them has dissapeared :'(
I've tried contacting both Sharp in the UK and they said they don't sell the screws, and the Sharp in America never replied  
Does anyone know where I can get replacement screws, or at least what type of screw they are?
Thanks for reading!

I posted this same question three or four months ago and got no response.  As soon as I can get some free time, I am going to:  1) google for small screws,  2) pester the guys down at Shadiorack,  3) start canibilizing any of the unused/nonfunctioning gadgets I have laying around for something that might work.  Alternatively, this could be a dandy excuse/rationalization for upgrading to a 6K or the phantom C960.

Yay! I got a reply!
I've also considered taking out screws from other things but couldn't find anything short enough, good luck with your quest and please tell me how you get on!

Try watch repair shops.

Don't pay a lot. Just tell them it's for a watch, not an expensive computer;)

Take the one remaining screw with you as a go-by. and DON'T LOOSE IT.

Good luck.

Also, you don't need to remove the screws.
Just spread the wings a bit and lift off.
