Re: [NTLK] erratic eMate issue

Make sure the latest system upgrade is installed, I believe it is
Since it requires that you press the reset button it probably isn't
related to a loose connection in the battery pack, but does it ever
happen with the power adapter plugged in? You could have a poorly
soldered connection in a rebuilt battery pack.
Sadly the error message is not helpful because my eMate will give
that message any time I press the reset button.

Sorry I can't be more helpful
