Re: Power socket / plug.

Hi, If you search the web for ipaqrepair, you can buy the connector for just over a tenner, and solder it on yourself (If you´re brave!) or the circuit board is available for about 55 quid.
It looks like they can repair it for you too, if you ask for a price

My IPAQ h5550 wont charge when plugged in there are no indications on the device this applies to all methods of charging.

I have had this problem before and found that if I put it on the charger for 20 minutes or so, (no lights), then did a hard reset (press the button on the bottom with a paperclip and hold the power button for 7 seconds) the lights would come on to indicate charging. If not, by now it is old and just may not work anymore. Good luck.

Pocket pc says it is connected to internet, if I try to go to a site an internet explorer message comes up the page you are looking for can not be found, if pocket pc is hooked up to another computer if...

Most probably, you are experiencing the mentioned symptoms because the wireless setting for your PDA are not set up correctly.

Have a look at the following link:

and scroll to the section: "Using the Wireless LAN (H5550 only)". If you are not using the WLAN utility and are connecting to the internet using a different device, try having a look at the sections: "Connecting to the Internet" and "Using Bluetooth"

Hope it helps.

No power

Sometimes the backup battery has to charge first. Leave it plugged in overnight. If that does not work get a new battery.

PocketDVD problems

I'm a little confused. Most of the encoding programs I know like Pocket DVD Studio or Pocket DVD Wizard are programs you run on your PC (not the iPaq) in order to create a file which you eventually download to your card and play with Betaplayer.

GPS on a e330

In my opinion there is no reason that it will not work properly. As far as I know lot of PDA`s are sold in Germany with GPS. Only problem can be GPS hardware. If you want to buy some please check which ports they need to work properly.
