RE: [transmonde] Transmonde dead battery
- I had the same problem with another brand notebook. I took it apart & the
connector was solid into the mother board. However, with a penlight and
magnifying glass I could see into the interior of the connector and
discovered the plastic base of the center pin was cracked. GameOver.
The power supply for my Vibrant LS did the same thing at the point where the
AC line plugs into the box. (I'm awful hard on stuff) I looted a power
supply from a dead Twinhead and spliced the Transmonde plug that goes into
the laptop onto it & it worked like a champ. (I have to create a diversion
when the safety inspectors make a sweep of our building)
I've inquired directly via e-mail to the Taiwanese company ASE about a main
battery since their model called the Falcon II (http://www.aset-tp.com.tw/)
looks & specs out exactly like the Vibrant LS, but don't have much hope.

Subject: [transmonde] Transmonde dead battery
My battery is dead too!! When my Transmonde was working, I had to wiggle
the power cord and keep it taunt while it was plugged in. I kept it taunt
by running it under the laptop. Well, finally the 'taunt' trick did not
work any more. I no longer got the 'charging' light and the battery finally
For you electricians out there, the power cord was still delivering the
proper voltage, so it wasn't the cord. I opened my Transmonde, but did not
see any broken connections.
A hell of a way to see 3 grand ($$$) go into the trashcan.
