Re: Stops while talking

Hi folks with aging JAMS. My JAM is still dying (complete shutoff) using phone. I wish it would just lose the phone signal but my unit shuts off completely during phone calls. I can have 80% charge. I spoke with a friend that mentioned on his cell phone (different manufacturer) that although his battery will show a full charge or less, the time it takes for the charge to go down is ridiculously fast once the battery is old. He watches his phone lose a charge in under an hour though it charges to full.

I wish IMATE would make some formal post regarding when to get a new battery and what symptoms are possible. I'm a bit hesitant to invest in batterys if the issue is hardware. I use the unit alot--as a PDA, a phone, etc. It gets jostled about so maybe something is lose inside, though I doubt it.

I purchased a cheap phone charger so in the car I'm recharging and at work I just keep a cheap USB to plug charger. I reserve the phone when I'm out. This is not really optimal for cell phone use but it's a behavioral fix. I figure I should be looking at a new device (despite high prices) soon.

I did a full discharge/charge cycle or two or three but only noted short term benefit. At some point the quirky behavior returned and off went the PDA cell with the 80% charge. I see dots of us around the net. Again my Jam is probably 3 years old this March.

Resetting the Device

Sometimes there is a need to reset your Pocket PC. Resetting the
device is known as performing a "soft" or "hard" reset.

Performing a Soft Reset

A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any
programs or saved data. Be sure to save any unsaved data within
a running application before performing a soft reset.
Perform a soft reset to:
■ Stop all running applications
■ Install a new application
■ Restart the Pocket PC if it stops responding

To perform a soft reset:

1. Locate the recessed Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ
Pocket PC.
2. Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button.
The Pocket PC restarts and displays the Today screen.

Performing a Hard Reset

Perform a hard reset only when you want to clear all
user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM
(Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have
loaded are stored.

CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data
and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to
lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ
Pocket PC for about two seconds.

3. When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the
Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus
from the Reset button.

Note: If you simultaneously push and hold the Reset, Calendar,
and iTask buttons for more than two seconds, the battery
disconnects. To restart the device, either plug the device into the
AC Adapter or press the Reset button again.
After performing a hard reset, you may need to reinstall
applications stored in iPAQ File Store to restore shortcuts and full

4. The Pocket PC resets and powers on.

To return your iPAQ Pocket PC to factory settings after
performing a hard reset:

1. Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer > My Device.
2. Tap the iPAQ File Store folder to open it.
3. Tap Edit > Select All.
4. Tap and hold the selected files, then tap Delete.
5. Tap Yes to delete all file in iPAQ File Store.

T-Mobile N95 8gb just a white screen

either replace the whole lcd screen at a nokia care centre or at a mobile phone store. cost at nokia care centre would be over $200 and at a phone store it would probably be over $150.

if the phone stops at the white screen it is usually a problem with the crystal diode in the lcd screen.

Moto Q gets off

I am afraid there can be a plethora of possible problems here. But I recommend trying a few things before going to your dealer. First, try removing the battery and replacing it. Second, I recommend quality battery care. Read the owners manual for how to maintain your battery. It may be helpful to allow your battery to run all the way down. Then recharge it to full (but do not overcharge your batter). Then run it all the way down again. Third try replacing the battery or having a second one handy. Fourth, try removing any programs you added and then reinstall them one at a time. Finally, IF ALL ELSE FAILS try a Master Reset. Remember that a master reset will delete everything you have added to your phone. To do this you need to go to Start, System Tools, Master Reset. Good luck.

Screen stopped responding in sony erricson p1i

Enter the service menu to see if the screen works there. If not try a master reset. If this doesn't help then try to reflash the phone with SEUS. If it still doesn't work, it probably means the screen has malfunctioned and you need to send the phone to a service center to be repaired. Good luck!
