Data erased - can I get it back?

The battery was low before I went on my vacation for 2 weeks. When I got back my Ipaq was dead and my appointments and other data were erased. Is there any way that I can get my stuff back?

Re: Data erased - can I get it back?

Usually, these will hold the memory for up to a week after the battery dies. However, if you were gone 2 weeks and it's forgotten everything, I'm afraid it's just gone. There is no permanent memory storage to restore it from.

Sorry for the bad news.

Ipaq H3630 how to do a hard reset

Compaq iPAQ h3630

Resetthe iPAQ H3000 and Clear Memory

Resetting the iPAQ

Ifyour iPAQ H3000 responds slowly, stops responding as expected, or“freezes,” try resetting it. A reset causes the iPAQ H3000 to restartand re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in open windows may belost. Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button for about twoseconds.

NOTE:Do not turn off your iPAQ as it must remain on in order to reset.


Clearing memory

Ifyou want to clear all data from your iPAQ H3000 and return it to thefactory settings, you should clear the memory.
Clearingmemory deletes all data and restores the iPAQ H3000 to its defaultsettings. Programs installed at the factory remain, while data you havecreated and programs you have installed are erased.

1.Using the stylus, slide open the On/Off door on the base of the iPAQH3000.


2.Slide the On /Off switch to the Off position using the stylus. Waitabout one minute, then slide the switch to the On position.


3. Close the Battery On/Off doorusing the stylus.


:Use CF Backup/Restore or ActiveSync to keep a backup of your iPAQ dataso that if you need to clear memory, you can restore the data on youriPAQ.

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.

Data erased from iPAQ hx4700

If an ipaq loses power , then all data in RAM is lost. It's important to keep it charged. It's also important to do regular backups..... so there are two backup options - one is thru Activesync which will backup to your PC and one is the IPAQ's own backup program which will backup to the IPAQ FILE STORE (area in ROM) or a SD card. I do the Activesync backup every time I sync and then the IPAQ backup about once a week or immediately before a system change. Activesync backup ------------------------ Here is a guide which best explains it this guide suggests doing a full backup, but it's fine to do an incremental backup each sync - this means that only changes will be added to your backup and makes the whole process much quicker. IPAQ Backup ----------------- So under Programs is a program called IPAQ Backup. The default location is IPAQ FILE STORE which is an area in ROM and is not lost thru a power failure nor hard reset. You may also choos to backup to a SD card - a full backup will need roughly 20MB. So in this backup procedure, if you click on 'Browse' you can choose a SD card. A restore can then be performed from the IPAQ FILE STORE or SD card (depending on which location you chose) and so if you are away from your PC, this will be no problem. A restore this way , rather than thru Activesync is also much quicker, so if you have a choice go this route.

Unresolved Items when synching

Try the following.... Open Active sync on your PC. Double Click on Calendar. Change the settings such that it syncs only 0 past and 0 future appointments. SYNC (this will clear all calendar items on the IPAQ) Now go back in to those Calendar settings, and set it back to the default which is 2 past weeks and All Future appointments. SYNC (this will now reload all appointments into your Ipaq)

My H5450 won't charge!

When you charge up your iPaq, do you use the cradle, or do you use the AC-adapter with the little iPaq power converter that came with the iPaq? Try both, and see if it charges up your pda. Try and borrow an iPaq car-charger and see if it charges up that way (the ones that do not need the iPaq power converter). If you are lucky enough to power up the iPaq even for 2 minutes, enable USB fast charging in the SETTING -> BATTERY. Your USB-data-cable or cradle will then be able to charge it up that way...

Blinking Green Ligh

Yes, this blinking green light is an appointment notification. So if you set up an appointment for September 30th, 2005 at 9:00 AM with a reminder set to 1 day....then on Sept 29th at 9:00AM, the IPAQ will turn itself on and a reminder screen will appear on your IPAQ. After a length of time (the default of which I can't remember now) the Ipaq will turn itself off, but will leave that green light flashing. When you then turn the IPAQ back on, the reminder screen will again appear and you can choose to dismiss the reminder or snooze it.
