If after doing all this it still does not work, borrow a different charger and battery and test the phone again.

If it still does not start, wait 24 hours, if it does not restart go to a phone shop, as it looks like there is an internal error, short , broken connection inside, or some component inside the phone has blow.

Talk to the technician at the shop and get a quote for the repair.

If that still does not work try checking the battery on another unit or if that is not possible try replacing the battery.

Have you tried connecting it with the charger and then turn it on? This will tell us if the battery is bad.

Hi,

Initially, pls try:

  • recharge the battery;
  • do a soft reset (Soft Reset button);
  • do a hard reset (on the bottom is located the reset button, the battery slide lock);
  • power on while being charge.
Pls post back results of above steps.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

When i try to upgroad to my hp ipaq hx 4700 .. after it the screen chang to black screen and i see the text in th screen ** serial** and at the end v1.0 please help me


when you are upgrading any phone from a computer or laptop you have got to make sure you have the right type of cable because when upgrading your software/firmware the phone switches of and back on into stand by mode and at that moment you cannot accept 'pc suite' like in a nokia n95. thats why the special cable has current going from the computer to the phone so when it switches to stand by mode the cable is in control

IPAQ 4700 hard resetting on its own.


I also own an ipaq 4700 and experienced the same problem. Even after reloading the OS I continued to have this problem. I did buy it refurbished but I fear this may be a common hardware problem. From my research it would appear the battery is the most likely culprit, I have not tried replacing mine but it may be worth a shot, if nothing else you have an extra battery which means less time at the charger :D

Dead hx4700


So check the battery lock switch at bottom of unit. It easily moves over to unlock position and then the 4700 will appear dead.

Pop up window "can not connect"


Almost surely you've got a "check e-mail every x minutes/hours" set, either in ActiveSync or on the iPaq (in Inbox or Messaging). You'll have to poke around to find it, but when you turn it off, those popups should cease.
