    Weird.

    I had the swollen battery removed, but the machine turns on for only a few seconds and goes off again.

    Tried it again after a few days and it stayed on a bit longer, but then shut down again.

    What am I missing?

    Hey guys,

    Just to let you know about a video posted on YouTube from a guy that had a swollen battery in his Z Canvas. It did even crack the LCD display. :eek:

    @HawkLS : Nice find, but the guy completely skips over how he got those three small screws out from under the top vent! That's really the biggest problem in getting the Z Canvas open.

    When he said that his unit had been running 24/7 for three years, and then commented on how puffed up the battery was, all I could do was shake my head. He probably never turned on the battery saver (80% charge limiter), so no wonder...
