While in diags mode, there is no screensaver or sleep mode, so the battery can discharge completely (making it appear bricked). It would be good to leave it connected to a charger (or host PC) while in diags mode.

P.S. The "twisted boy under tree" screen happens because the startup code assumes 608x800, but in diags the screen is actually 600x800. This is normal for a K4, but should only last a second or two before the diags menu appears (unless battery is too discharged).
When the charging LED turned green, I plugged it to usb host and restart, but still got the twisted image.
I am quited confused now.
