Question about HP iPAQ H1945 Pocket PC
I downloaded a update for the thing and now it goes thur to the hp print ad and the rainbow pinwheel just keeps spinning and goes no farther.did a soft and hard reset got nothing.took the batt out and still the thing hangs up.emailed hp they told me i had to send it in and have to pay for it. i like the thing but its old and not worth the money i was wondering if there was a free way to reset it. if not ill give it to my 4 year old to pretend its a phone.
thank you for your time
p.s the update file is sp26263.exe
HP , drivers , and updates are complex. (as are all OS)
the file must match your OS and version.
match your pC (exact IPAQ in this case)
and installed in the correct order.
pretend its a phone, best for any thing this old , it has no real value.
why not ask first before doing any updates
why did you, ?
was there some problems, yes then ask.
if there is a problem of any kind this is the first stop.
its free to ask for help. try that. please.

I have to agree with DirtyHarry1, it sounds like the battery could be weak. On my iPAQ when the battery is done charging the charging light changes from orange to green, I'm not sure if yours will do that. I'd try leaving it charging on the cradle for about 24 hours to see if that improves the life any.

Hello and sorry for the delay.
the h1945 series is a very intresting pda. I have seen all sorts of problems relating this one. There are some things you may want to try. Based on that knoledge I may be able to find what's rong with your unit.
First, check if the back cover fits tight on the back of the unit. It's important because on some ipaq models, there is a small micro-contact that doesn't allow the unit to power on if the back cover isn't attached. I'm not sure if the 1945 has one, it's been 2 years since i've last phisically repaired one of these, but you may look for one yourself. It's a small contact near one side of the back opening, check to see if it can be pressed. If you don't have anything like this just ignore this tip.
Second, leave the pda connected to the charger for about 6 hours. Even if it doesn't do anything. Then try to start the bootloader by pressing the 2 outer keys near the D pad (simillar to the hard reset procedure) then, while keeping those pressed, press the power button and in the same time press the soft reset button with your stylus. You must do this with your charger connected to the pda. It may be difficult to achieve in the first try. Just try to do this a few times and if the pda doesn't respond even now, please post back. Furthermore, if you need more info about these 2 tips please reply.

If all else fails, remove battery from unit & let completely run down
(usually 12-24 hours), possibly longer.
Pop on charger, & unit should turn on as if hard reset
