Default Please Help!! Stylus not locking

Hello,

I bought the XDA IIs from a friend of mine in the U.K a month ago.

Everything works fine except that the STYLUS DOES NOT LOCK on to the groove provided behind the phone.

No matter how hard I push in it just would lock!!!

It was locking fine just an hour ago!!

After I charged the XDA IIs through a hotsync cable this problem seems to have arised.

Is there anything I can do at home to rectify the problem.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!

P.S - I have tried with a new pair of styli though and even they wouldn't lock in.!!!

Could be VERY "handy" to have more "finger-optimized" options on the screen... I now really find the "stick" a ver slowww "extra". :roll:

Hello

same problem, but realy easy to fix.

You have to use insulating tape (sorry, i don't know if this is the correct english name. This tape is used for insulating two elettrical wires connected togheter.)

So, you have to cut about 4mm x 1.5cm of this tape and then you have to turn around it on the top of your stylus.

This will produce a little gain of soft thickness right in the place where the stylus is in contact with your PDA.

My stylus slot was broken about one year ago: i used this insulating tape, and i have never lost my stylus.

follow some pictures... i have used white insulating tape in order to produce cleat photos: of course, you have to use black tape, as you can see in the last picture
