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.

SOURCE: hp iPAQ h1945 won't start

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.

SOURCE: HP iPAQ 2490B can not be hard reset

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

It says can't download the update. to test your connection, open system settings ad select network settings, test xbox live connection. Then when i do that it says the same thing again

The trick is to not test the connection. Just keep trying to download the update... It might take a few tries, it might take a few hundred, but eventually it will take. I believe this problem is caused by a busy server on microsoft's end, but am unsure.... just hang in there and keep trying to download the update without testing the connection.

"Rainbow" word art (Microsoft)

Have you tried prinitng this in MONO on your 2840 printer.
Does Wordart from Word or other office programs cause this?
If it is the office suite, then look at downloading some service packs from Microsoft.
If it's just your 2840 doing it, then look at downloading a different driver.
For some printers there are different types of PCL drivers, like PCL5 or PCL6, these do behave differently per printer, so swapping the driver might not be a bad idea.
Also check if you are using a PS or Postscript driver, but again, try the PCL alternative for your printer.

I would install the different driver under another name, for testing, then if it works just delete the bad one.

Can't print to 1410 after I upgraded to Leopard

You need to update your printer software. Download and install from this link;

Once it is installed I suggest that you open system preferences (found by clicking the apple in the top left) and go to print and fax and delete and readd the printer so it will pull from the most recent drivers.

Laserjet 5L Hangs on Single Sheet Input Jobs

This probably means that the document you printed is set to manual and the printer is waiting for input

try this:
print the document, when the data light is on, press the button on the printer, does it print? if yes go into word and under page setup set the printer to "Auto select" for the paper tray.

or remove paper, print, when the data light comes on, insert the paper into the single sheet tray

hope this helps
thanks for rating
