Hp ipaq rx5935 - did hard reset hangs - now hangs at HP blue boot screen
I had critical memory storage warnings. I tried a soft reset which did not fix them. HP advised a hard reset. It now hangs at the end of the HP booting sequence with the HP blue screen. I have to take the battery out to switch off. (HP want 80% of the purchase price to do any fixes.) The hardware was working fine and the software also worked when the multiple error messages were concelled. Can anybody please help?

A factory reset erases all user-installed settings, programs, and data, and restores your HP iPAQ to factory settings. CAUTION All user-installed settings, programs, and data are erased from memory with a factory reset. To perform a factory reset and return your HP iPAQ to factory settings:
Press and hold the OK and Rotate Screen buttons.
While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the HP iPAQ until the device restarts.
When the HP iPAQ restarts, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
The HP iPAQ will now restart and power on.
If you have done the above and still no go. Then your main drive has probably failed.
Try hard reset: pressing and holding the calendar and iTask buttons and doing a soft reset for 2 seconds.
Hard resetting a WM 5 HX 4700 is to press and hold the Contacts and Mail buttons and
then doing a soft reset. The boot screen will popup with a message “To

If that fails, try upgrading to wm 6 or wm 6.1 then downgrading afterwards.
I've upgraded from wm2003SE to wm6.1 alkor rc2.2 rom.
I Also Had The Same Problem. Now I Fixed It. Go To Power In Settings. Click On The Advanced Tab. Uncheck The Box Which Says "Turn Off The Device If Not Used For" Box. This Will Solve The Problem. It Solved Mine. Thereafter Once, My Backlight Did Not Switch On. Fix This By Going Into Backlight Settings And Uncheck The Box Which Says "Turn Off The Backlight If Not Used For" Box. This Will Solve It. Then Soft Reset The Device To Change Settings. To Soft Reset, Find A Small Hole In The Left Hand Side Of The Device. Put Your Stylus In And PRESS ONLY ONCE. If You Keep It Pressed, Your Device Will Hard Reset. Don't Do That. Just Press ONCE.
try a hard reset - it will restore to the original state. it removes all files and programs in the memory files in a storage card wont be affected.
Just hold down the calendar and today buttons, these are the two outer buttons on the lower left and lower right, then using a stylus press and hold for at least ten seconds the soft reset button this is located on the lower right edge of the unit. The screen should reset and the iPAQ will boot up again.
Try this: 4. Make clean reset (hold callendar + itask,
then press and hold reset), after about two seconds you will hear
knack. Now unhold these buttons. The screen will be black.
5. After that make hard reset (hold callendar
+ messaging + power and then press and hold reset) after about two
seconds unhold reset button first and after about one seconds remaining
buttons. You will see on screen PS FORMAT.
6. Now is you iPAQ ready.
Have you tried a soft reset or hard reset yet P ?
How about a ROM update ?
Seem like one of your applications on the Ipaq is having a conflict so try to remove them 1 by 1 and pinpoint the exact culprit
Did you have the programs installed on the main Ipaq memory or a SD card if you have one ?
