Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC

No longer recognises stylus imput

For some reason my hx4700 no longer recognises the stlus imput.    It may work for one tap or sometimes 3 or 4 taps, then does not react to the stylus.    I have tried both a soft and a hard reset but no avail.   The battery is fully charged and the problem persists even if the 4700 is connected to the mains.    It has been suggested that I remove the battery and perform a full battery drain before recharging and trying again but I don't know how to perform the battery drain.   Any ideas please?

    I also have the same problem. I have tried a soft and hard reset, but the problem persists. The difficulty in Skydog's solution is that, if the sceen cannot accept stylus input, it is not possible to adjust the backlight settings to allow the full battrey drain!

Ok I fixed mine! Nothing too exotic or technical - I cleaned the screen! Used a spray of notebook screen cleaner and gently rubbed (which helped) then took a sheet of paper and cleaned in around the edge of the screen, which seemed to fix it completely. The paper came out a bit grubby, so I guess there is a problem if you get dirt between the screen and the casing. Mine is a s/h reconditioned unit, and probably a couple of years old, so this may have been an accumulation over that time. Anyway it now works fine after a month of thinking I would have to bin it (as I haven't been able to find anybody remotely interested in taking it into a workshop on the continent!

When was the last time you performed the screen adjustment? Also, if you have a lot of programs running in the background, the screen will stop responding due to the memory being used up.

To check for programs running:

start / settings / system / memory icon / running programs.

Just disable the settings where it says to turn off the backlight & PDA power after certain minutes and set your standby time (in power battery setting) to 0, then leave your PDA on until it fully drains (usually a week or two).

Screen not aligned


Ref. HP ipaq hx4700: "Align screen" after hard reset or battery loss. I know others have had trouble getting past the "align screen" setup; I saw a suggestion somewhere that said the points were registered incorrectly (maybe in some, but not all of this model?); and they had to tap at locations other than the center of the cross symbol. I tried a variety of combinations, and found that if I tap ABOVE the center (but still on the vertical centerline) for the middle, top left and top right locations; and tap BELOW the center (but still on the vertical centerline) for the bottom left and bottom right...it worked. That brought me to the "Stylus" setup screen...which I also became "stuck" on. So far, I haven't found a solution to THAT issue yet. Gee, why can't they make these things simpler?

Get to Start menu


I have same problem but found a work-around. I have found that 2 SD cards kept in the pockets in the flip over cover of my leather case has caused scuffing to the touch screen and the screen will now not align properly. In the alignmet utility I have to tap the centre of the alignment cross in the middle and 2 top positions and tap about 3mm above the cross in the bottom 2 positions (portrait format). This means of course that the bottom of the screen is out of alignment and I have to tap high at the bottom of the screen but I have got used to it. Not great, I know, but its better than nothing.

Wi-fi PDA connectivity problem


First, restart your pda by using your stylus and pressing the pin-hole sized button on the back of the PDA. There are sometimes a couple of different reasons why the pda wont recognize the network. Main Reason: Make sure you are at the home screen... Tap the wifi icon on the lower right corner of the pda. T hen make sure that the WLAN power is turned ON. Press the setting button. If you see your network in the list, tap on it. It should bring up a network configuration window. Make sure it says it connect to "The Internet". Then tap on the "Network Key" tab at the bottom of window. If you have no security settings on your belkin router, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is set to "Disabled". Then press "OK". That should Be it!!!! Let me know if this way doesnt work, or if something doesnt make sence!
