PDA Keeps Dying

Hi, We use PDAs at work (I think that they are the same as the above one - looks the same) and Two of them were purchased just over two years ago. A couple of months ago, in the middle of using it, it completley shut down and lost all settings just like it was out of the box all over again. A couple of days later the other one did it. The IT people tell me that this is because it is not kept it its cradle but it always is. In the 2 years that we have had them they have probabley only been left off their cradles about 3 times each. They always have most of their battery when they die and when I got to work this morning and took it off the cradle (The light was on so I know that it was charged) it had died again!! Please help because I am getting so frustrated and all Im told is that it happens because they haven't been charged. Also a bit strange that both units did it so close together when they are the same age. Any Clues?? Much Appreciated:)

SOURCE: PPT2846 Dies Whenever Scan Trigger is Pushed

sounds like you have a faulty laser moule, which overtaxes / shorts accross the battery, I am unsure whether this is user servicable, and may require a prefessional repair to replace the laser pack.

My phone keeps rebooting everytime

hi thanks for using fixya!

Try to remove the battery, then install it back again then try to make a hard reset of your pda. Please observe what will happen and the error again. If you are still experiencing the same, please bring your pda to a service center to check further the software of your pda.

I don't think you can change the flow rate of the wireless modem. Are you talking about the link speed? As to your JasJam PDA, look in your manual
