1.2) Download:
Note: You need 3 files!: [.tfs], [.cfg] and a [.bin or .cla] file.
2) STEP2: Make serial connection to phone:
2.1) Two ways to get a connection with your phone:
2.1.1) Buy a USB to SAMSUNG connector (Not the one you get with your phone. You must buy it). (Expensive)
I dident buy a cable but you can find aSamsung E210 / G600 / L760 USB Flash Cable here (this is compatible with the J700):
Note: dont buy a DATA SUITE CABLE but a UNLOCK / FLASH CABLE!!! (So on the webpage of fonefunshopscroll all the way down).
I did it like this because i had everything i needed anyway. Most peolpe probably wont but you can find the components i use in every electronic shop or online via websites like
What I did was making this scheme and used a USB to serial converter cable because I didn't had a COM port:
You need:
- MAX232 in a 16pin DIP package
- 4 x 10µF Capacitors
- A serial connector (female or male: depends on the cable you use to connect to your PC).
- An old USB cable you can strip to get a clean power of 5V.
- And serial cable of course (I used a USB to serial cable but if you have a COM port you can use simple old serial cable)

I have soldered the wires directly on to the pcb at the back of the phone connector. I used some old IDE cable for it. When soldering you will notice the connector pins are very small so only solder 1 sup copper wire of the bundle to the bcp. Pretty difficult but with a magnifying class it is possible.
Use tape to secure everything because. Try to put the little pcb back into the phone and connect the 2 plastic flat cables back onto it.
1.jpg2.jpg3.jpgNote: I didn't use the USB cable for a stable 5V but and 7805 so the first picture shows a little bit more components than what is needed.
3) STEP3: Download FLASH Software and FLASH IT!
3.1) Download flash software
This is what we need:
oneNAND Downloader v1.4 for pnx5230
You can find it here:

3.2) FLASH IT!
Start oneNAND and do like I did on the photo:
  1. Turn off your cell phone.
  2. Then click START.
  3. When he shows you this message: **(POWER ON the PHONE!)** just push the power button shortly. (1sec is enough).
  4. oneNAND Downloader will now try to identify the oneNAND chip inside the cell phone.
  5. If all is well he would say something of 256MB ...
  6. Then press DOWNLOAD and wait for 2 hours and your phone will be flashed with the firmware.
  7. Finished!
Have fun!

HI, I have a 1 Terabyte SAMSUNG External Hardrive. The USB Connector broke off, but I can see my data if I hold the connector to the circuit board. Will I be able to purchase SIMILr circuit board for...

I think you'd be better of with buying a external box to put the drive into it . You need to cautiously break the original box open and proceed with the transfer .

Which transfer program for dictaphone m5220 works with windows 7?

You can use either Walkabout Transfer or Walkabout Write found here:

Also, if you connect the portable via USB to your PC, it'll connect just like a USB memory stick and you can use Windows Explorer to transfer your dictation from the 'DSS' folder.

I want to transfer files that were recorded on a dictaphone on to another dictaphone to play. How do I do this? The files are the same format and when I move them the dictaphone doesn't have them to play

Can't you simply take the tape from the 2750 and put it into the other Dictaphone to play it? Or is the other Dictaphone a different size tape (eg; mini or micro)?

Faulty Usb cable so I cannot download my sessions

try cutting the cable head that goes into the voice recorder and buying any USB cable extention and attaching the colored wires then solder them lightly and wrap a tap around each one of the cables then wrap te bundle and try it. just be carefull not to add too much soldering and keep cable from touching each other.
