How do I reset my dell axim pocket pc back to its original settings?


Hi there,

Performing a Reset
Soft Reset
When you perform a soft reset, the device deletes any data that has not been saved but saves any data that has been stored in memory. Try performing a soft reset if the device does not respond when you tap the display or press a button.

To perform a soft reset, use the stylus to press the reset button.

Hard Reset

NOTICE: When you perform a hard reset, you lose all the data stored and any programs you installed on your device.
Perform a hard reset if:
•You want to delete all the data stored on your device.
•You forget your password and need to clear it.
•Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have
already attempted a soft reset.
NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you perform a hard reset. See ActiveSync Help on your computer for more information.
To perform a hard reset:
1 Press and hold the power button.
2 With the stylus, hold the reset button for about 2 seconds.
3 Follow the instructions on the screen.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

Hx4700 wont work after failed update on ROM v1.10


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 perform a clean reset, which will clear all data in memory, press the [Calendar] button”

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.

HP iPAQ 2490B can not be hard reset


remember that you must hold down the two buttoms at the same time then push in the reset for 2 sec (holding it in). release the 2 buttoms then remove the stylus for the reset port. after about 4 sec press & release the reset buttom again, sytem will pwr up. If this doesn't resolve the issue then try the clean reset but bear in mind u will loss any thing u installed on the ipaq as system go to default setting and u will be required to align the screen. good luck

When i do hard reset hx2490b screen calibration does not appear


Try using your finger to calibrate the screen at first. (If you have difficult to navigate to the alignment screen use the stylus & keyboard to feel out your way) when calibrated to an accepable degree use the stylus to calibrate the sreen, if the target doesn't respond to stylus at any specific piont use your finger. Continue this process till u get it aligned as best as possible. I suspect this problem is caused by specific points on the screen going bad.

NO SOUND AFTER TOMTOM 6


I had the same issues as mentioned installing TomTom Navigator version 7 onto a HP IPAQ 2415 running Windows Mobile 5. As soon as TomTom was installed the sound stopped working.

I did a Hard Reset to restore the IPAQ which got the sound back. I then downloaded the trial version of WinCE Cab Manager http://www.ocpsoftware.com/products.php?nm=cecabmgr and used this to remove the files Btcoreif.dll and Btsdkce30.dll from the TomTom installation CAB. I saved the cab and then ran this again and it installed perfectly and I still had sound. Hope this offers a solution for anyone still having a problem.
