I have a pismo 500mhz machine, and up until last month, it has been rock solid. Now we have issues with it. Most of the time it will not power on. I have been able to get it to power on and boot after opening it up from the keyboard entrance and taking out the processor card and placing it back in, putting it all back together and then powering it on. After its on, it will run well, but then it will shut off on its own during use and not power back on again. I also need to say that not every time i remove and re-install the processor does it boot up again. I think it might just be coencidence.
Do i have a powersupply problem? It does not seem to matter which AC adapter I use, either the black box or the yo-yo. I am tinking i might have a power board problem in the pismo its self.
Is this a commom issue?
is this a pricy issue?
I would like to have this fixed as it is my son's machine and my wife uses it a lot as well.
