Question about HP iPAQ h6315/h6365 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Lost data There is a doc in my office who uses an Ipaq his wife bought him for Christmas. Sometimes he'll lock it up and when he does he removes the battery to reboot, and once this weekend he let the battery run out completely. Sometimes when he does that, his ipaq loses all the information in it. He's able to sync with his laptop, but why does this happen?

The device doesn't exactly work like a computer... It needs battery power to "remember" what the user does. When you remove the battery, you let it forget everything. It's like how your car stereo loses it's memory channels whenever they do battery related work. What I would HIGHLY suggest, is set Activesync to do a full backup EACH TIME the device connects (it's in Tools, Backup). THEN, when he loses the information, you do a full restore. That being said -- to do a "reboot" just push the reset button (small hole on bottom left side grip) with the stylus. If you want a more thorough reboot, it's safe to just take the battery out for a few seconds. I do this about once a day.

Data missing - Ipaq model HP5555 - did not do hard reset


I'm sorry but the HP Ipaq 55xx series store data on a volatile ram based memory. Unlike a nand flash (like usb sticks, memory cards etc) this memory will hold data only as long as it's powered on. If your main battery gets empty you should still be able to retain your files for some 10-20hrs with the backup battery (if it's ok itself and not depleted). After this time the power to the ram memory is cut off and all data is lost.
The problem you face is somewhat related to that backup battery, as it appears it's unable to do it's job and maintain the power to the ram memory at least some 10 hrs. You should have that battery replaced.

There is no way to recover the data from the ram memory as it is stored as an electric charge over some memory cells in the ram chips. When there is no power, these charges dissipate and the pattern is lost.

I'm sorry for having to give the bad news.

How do you reset it to factory settings

To perform a soft-reset (if the device has locked), briefly insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715
To perform a hard reset (losing all data!), insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715 while holding down the far left and far right of the four main buttons. Information in the iPAQ File Store will not be lost, but data on the Internal memory will be wiped.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

IPAQ 5550

Performing a Full Reset A full reset is sometimes referred to as a ?hard reset.? Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs, and data from RAM. A full reset deactivates the battery. The power button does not function until the battery is reactivated. CAUTION: If you perform a full reset, your iPAQ Pocket PC returns to its default settings and loses all information that is not recorded in ROM. To perform a full reset: 1. Press and hold Application Buttons 1 (Calendar) and 4 (iTask) on the front of the unit and, at the same time, use the stylus to press the Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ Pocket PC. 2. Hold all buttons until the displayed Full PDF document can be found here:
