  • Page 5: Welcome

    Welcome Thank you for buying the SHARP SL-C1000 / SL-C3000 / SL-C3100. This device is not sold from SHARP out of Japan. It is a Japanese device with English user interface and English keyboard. If you are mainly interested in a calendar, addressbook, etc., you are perhaps better off with a simple organizer.

    SL-C1000/3000/3100 Quickstart The Zaurus SL-C1000/SL-C3000/SL-C3100 This manual is only for the SL-C1000 / SL-C3000 / SL-C31000 models which are different in some important points compared to the previous SL-C series Zauris. The essential difference is the bigger battery, the included 4 GB harddrive in the SL-C3000 / SL-C3100 and the USB port with host capability.

  • Page 11: Device Backside

    Comment regarding the Serviceport: Zaurus-enthusiasts will assume that there’s the well known SHARP I/O port hidden behind the cover. Wrong ! Behind this cover you will find the same connector as in all previous Zauris but for the SL-C1000/SL-C3000 there is NO longer serial or USB communication supported via this connector.

  • Page 16: Software For Sl-5500(G)

    ///TRIsoft OHG SL-C1000/3000/3100 Quickstart Software for SL-5500(G) Most applications offered for SL-5500(G) can be run on SL-C series Zauris without problems. The SL-C series recognises these, switches the display to portrait and doubles the output pixels. The application will then be shown optimally, because the SL-C series uses 4 times the resolution of the old device (640x480 instead of 320x240).

    For this you need the japanese Version of IntelliSync that is found on CD #1 of the SL-C3000/SL-C3100 CDs (or the one SL-C1000 CD). A detailed document how to install a working IntelliSync in english is available as zipped RTF-document in our download area:

The Kino2 player which was very popular for the previous Zaurus models is actually (January 2005) not working with the 1000/3000/3100 series. A working version for this model should be available soon.

    This option may take 1.5 hours or longer ! First start A nice, red logo from SHARP appears and the Zaurus is reset. After a minute, the well-known "CG Silicon / Zaurus" screen is visible, which means that there is another exciting minute to wait.

    Use only the matching backup for your Zaurus. Please don’t try to restore a backup from another model in your SL-C1000 or SL-C3000 / 3100. Please remind that the backup needs to be placed in the subdir “Backup_Files” of the memory card (see note on page 21).

    This is done in the Zaurus service menu. All steps are explained at page 33. SL-C3000: As mentioned on page 28 there’s actually no practical way to backup the SHARP ROM (ok, maybe if you own a CF card > 4GB and have lots of time) for a later recovery.

    NO, it’s not a good idea to open the Zaurus to look where it is and play with it.Also please don’t open an SL-C1000 and try to add a MicroDrive (it’s not possible, really not !). OK, serious: The harddisk is not removable or replaceable for the user.
