Hi, I have this IPAQ hx2410 and I also have a Palm Tungsten E. The palm is able to receive and send beem while. As for the IPAQ, I don't know cause I don't have any program that use the beem (like that remote control program for palm) but I did tried to transfer a contact from my IPAQ to my palm and they don't seem to communicate. Is it that IPAQ and palm can't communicate together or the IPAQ is broken?

To perform a hard reset you need to press buttons 1 and 4 in addition to the reset hole. This should do the trick.
The guidelines for resetting your phone is given below
Performing a Hard Reset
Perform a hard reset only when you want to clear all user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM (Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have loaded are stored.
CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.
To perform a hard reset:
1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons. 2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ Pocket PC for about two seconds.

3. When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
Note: If you simultaneously push and hold the Reset, Calendar, and iTask buttons for more than two seconds, the battery disconnects. To restart the device, either plug the device into the AC Adapter or press the Reset button again. After performing a hard reset, you may need to reinstall applications stored in iPAQ File Store to restore shortcuts and full functionality.
4. The Pocket PC resets and powers on.
To return your iPAQ Pocket PC to factory settings after performing a hard reset:
1. Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer > My Device. 2. Tap the iPAQ File Store folder to open it. 3. Tap Edit > Select All. 4. Tap and hold the selected files, then tap Delete. 5. Tap Yes to delete all file in iPAQ File Store.
I think you've know already (as an experienced technician) that opening h/w case won't solve anything.. The normal BIOS write is about 20 min (or more), longer than that it could be a problem with ActiveSync or your PC connections. I'm afraid the ROM chip cannot re-restore because flashing basically format and write your BiosRom chip. Just pray that doing "hard reset" will turn your 'tiny' IpaQ to come alive.
I did not write the posting attributed to me. I have a Palm Tungsten E. My Dad had been using it and I needed to know how to do a hard reset so it would accept my info. I found that on the Palm site after looking on your site. I performed the hard reset and hot synced the Palm with my info.
I have the same problem, after I did the hard reset and installed no programs, this power problem disappeared. But once i installed any programs, PDA battery life became no longer than 2 days, which is strange.
There is a program called Peacemaker that will allow you to transfer contacts by IR. I used it to transfer from my Palm III to my IPaq and from my IPaq to my T-68i. It will only allow a block of 50 contacts at a time
Have you been able to connect through your router at home? I'd get that set up and running first. Then doing it on the road will merely be variations on a familiar theme. If you've tried at home but it hasn't worked, let us know something about your home network (what kind of router? using security/encryption?), and about what you've already tried so we can try to help.
