Hello!
I recently got a Jornada 728. On the bottom card reader, it seems that the hinge is broken or crooked, and doesn't sit right.
Is there an easy way to fix this? I also have a 720 that I would be willing to swap parts with (the 720 has a broken screen).
Here are pictures of the issue:

Unless it's that visible screw that has slipped,you'll have to open her up and look to see where the problem is. Something is bent I'd imagine.

I haven't opened the device up yet, but I tried to get it to read a CF card and it wouldn't. It would ask to name the driver for an unidentified PC card, then it wouldn't show up in file explorer.

Assuming that the CF card was formatted correctly for CE, it could be hardware, bad ribbon cable or connection. Either way, you'll need to get a screwdriver out.
