Question about HP iPAQ hw6915 Smartphone

2 Answers

I have an iPaq hw6915 that keeps crashing even though there is still 60-80% battery life in it. I've had it for about 2 years, and this problem started 2 or 3 weeks ago. Do I need a new battery, or could it be a virus problem, or something else? I don't have an anti-virus program on it and wondered if the bad guys have now got around to PDAs and I should protect it.

It is more likely to be some kind of system corruption. If you have not installed much software and don't stand to lose much if you were to reinitialize the system, I would try a hard reset if all else has failed.
The OS is non writable, so it would be very difficult for anyone to hack into while you are online, unlike a desktop or laptop system, which is far more vulnerable to such attacks. These PDAs are however vulnerable to power surges and power cuts when connected via the cradle etc. I would also agree with others that the battery is certainly a weak point with these models, although personally I am not willing to pay out HP prices for a replacement each year, and mine also tends to show 80% charge much of the time.
You should also probably be more specific about your description of the fault - under what conditions does it crash, for example?

Not a virus.

Go into settings and check how much free memory you have. Without enough memory machine will crash.

Hello,

The batteries from Ebay that are from China have lots of issues. I use an HP 6945 phone/pda and had the same issue with my original battery. I tried a cheap battery and it died within 2 months. I ordered an HP original battery and have been using it again full strength for 7 months. The new battery works bluetooth, wi-fi and gps as well as phone down to about 15% before I recharge. The HP batteries are more expensive but they are worth the extra price.

Try a Reset....
Performing a Clean Reset will help
A clean reset clears all user-installed settings, programs, and data, and restores
your HP iPAQ to factory settings.
To perform a clean reset and return your HP iPAQ to factory settings:
1.Press and hold the Answer/Send, Power, and End Call buttons.
2.While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ until the device restarts.
3.When the HP iPAQ restarts, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
The HP iPAQ restarts and powers on.
Thanks

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.

Ipaq will not Charge


Those batteries only last about 2 years. It's probably time for a replacement.
