Re: rx1950 freeze on soft reset

You can do a hard reset by doing the following...

01) Press and hold down the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
02) While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the "Reset" button/hole on the back of the iPAQ until the screen goes blank.
03) Release the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
04) Press the "Reset" button/hole again (so that it resets/powers on.)

PDA will not perform any of my commands..its frozen

Hello, Tallman.

I'd suggest to perform a soft reset then a hard reset, if the soft reset doesn't work.

Then if necessary, as this may or may not be a simple solution, depending on your particular brand and model:

Remove the back of the PDA. Remove and reinsert the battery.

Hope this helps.

I was using my Psion 5mx This evening "Playing the bombs game" when suddenly the game froze. It didn't freeze completely as the game timer was still going and I was able to switch the PDA off. After that...

Unfortuately after taking the machine to my local Psion Teklogix Retailer, I was told that my only solution wast to perform a "Hard Reset" on the machine. Thankfully the PDA still works fine, but my data is all gone. I've managed to restore my data up to July 2009, but the rest I'll have to write off to a learning experience. Needless to say, I'll never play the "Bombs game again". :-)

Hp rx1950 battery life.

I have the same problem, after I did the hard reset and installed no programs, this power problem disappeared. But once i installed any programs, PDA battery life became no longer than 2 days, which is strange.

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.
