Can't type in login pin number. h5550



I can't tap in the numbers for the pin number properly. The screen loads correctly but it seems i need to tap at the opposite end of the screen to hit a "6" for instance. Its as if the touch sensitivity is rotated 180 degrees to the image.

Lots of important data on the internal memory, so i dont want to hard reset. Any suggestions?

Power socket / plug.

Hi, If you search the web for ipaqrepair, you can buy the connector for just over a tenner, and solder it on yourself (If you´re brave!) or the circuit board is available for about 55 quid.
It looks like they can repair it for you too, if you ask for a price

IPAQ h5550

I had to install several updates on my H5550 to get the wireless to work. You need firmware 1.10.10 to start with (the latest version), then there are several wireless firmware updates, and a wireless driver you need to install. I can´t remember what these were off the top of my head, but it might help point you in the right direction.
