Re: Dropped PDA

First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.

Locked out of my ipaq

  • press and hold the Calendar and WiFi buttons

  • while holding those buttons down, press and hold the reset button for ~2 seconds

  • When the HP iPAQ screen begins to fade, release the Calendar and WiFi buttons first, then remove the stylus from the reset button.

  • Press reset again.  (Or, plug the device into the AC adpater.)

  • The Pda is now hard reset and restored to defaults stored in the rom memory. the password and everything else should be gone and it should work as if you had just opened it for the first time.

    Hp rx1950 battery life.

    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.
