|You must have experienced that terrible
moment, when, after changing your Psion Organiser battery and switching on again, you are
faced with this spine chilling message:
|It really is annoying! Especially when you had
taken the trouble to connect up your power supply before changing that darn battery to
ensure that it didn't happen!
But, you forgot to check that the power socket, where your power supply is plugged into, was switched on, didn't you?
Well, do not despair a solution is at hand ;-}
Take a look to the right (Image 1) - a power supply adapter with a power indicator. Nice idea wouldn't you agree?
It looks just like a Comms Link, doesn't it?
Why didn't Psion think of adding a L.E.D (light emitting diode) to the power supply adapter? It would have made life that little bit more easier for us.
|Look again to the right (image 2), there,
you can examine the inside of the modified power supply adapter. The very simple addition
of the L.E.D is clearly visible.
Just two of pieces of wire, a L.E.D (light emitting diode), a 330 ohm .25 watt resistor and all you need to finish the job is a dab hand with a soldering iron. Oh! not forgetting a small drill for making the hole in the case for the L.E.D.
Now before you start to modify your power supply adapter we must get one point clear:
Disclaimer - Please Read.
Before you start to operate on your Psion Organiser II power supply adapter please be aware that I accept no responsibility what-so-ever if you spoil/damage/destroy any part of either your power supply adapter, your Psion Organiser or any other item!
Please read these instructions carefully and be sure that you are able to follow them to the letter and can complete the procedure successfully before you embark upon this project.

Good luck and hopefully you will never again lose data while changing your Psion battery ;-}
