My hp rx1950 won't turn on after a while

My hp rx1950 wont turn on after a few hours. I then have to pull out the battery, restart the whole device. After that, the PDA works 100% fine. I can even turn on and off the device. The battery is 100% too. As i think that the device is alright, I put it back into my bag. After a period of time(maybe over an hour) , when i want to switch on the device to check my timetable. It wont turn on again. I have to pull out the battery for the second time. Then it will work fine, but later the same thing happens. This dead loop has gone on for the whole day already.

Re: my hp rx1950 won't turn on after a while

There could be a piece of software running that is locking up the device. You might want to check for updates to your PDA and any software you have installed on it. If that doesn't work try doing a hard reset, which will erase everything, then reinstall one application per day to see if the problem pops up after one of the applications is installed. If that doesn't work, it could be hardware issue, if there is an extra storage device in it pull it out and see what it does. You will have to troubleshoot. Try different things and see what the result is, eventually you'll be able to narrow it down.

Problem synching after Daylight Savings Time

I have this problem too. The only way I can correct it, is by removing the battery, reinstalling it and letting it boot up again. Then I plug into the USB port for iPAQ and it seems to connect to ActiveSync. It's a real pain.

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.
