Dead screen and pearl
A friend gave me his dead 8100. It appears to tun on. Screen does not come on nor the light for the trackball but...I can hit the side button and it asks for a voice command. I also can read the memory with desktop manager. I think the guts are alive but no screen.. Couple questions, does the screen control the light for the trackball? I also see there are diffrent replacement screens for the 8100? Thanks for any help!
If this is the issue you are having, you can try this but if that fails there really isn't anything else you can do. It is a known issue and the only other resolution is a warranty replacement.
Or you can also try a screen replacement but as the thread indicates it may not be the screen itself but shorting out under the screen itself.
no white screen just nothing...black. And no light on the pearl..
Well then you might be out of luck. Not sure, maybe a screen replacement but it could be a toss up and money spent that may/may not work.
Good luck though!
Did you try re-installing the OS, just to make sure that you tried everything?
I know, that's probably a long shot, but who knows?
