Screen keeps going blank - then only works when connected to mains adapter or usb

The screen just dies when I tap the screen. I can get it working again by plugging in mains adapter, but it dies again when disconnected and the screen is tapped. The battery is showing almost fully charged. I have tried a soft reset, but no use.

Re: Screen keeps going blank - then only works when...

I have the same problem, but sometimes when i connect the charger it does not charge or pcsync..
where the charge slot is on xda-orbit/htc-p3300, there is 2pins inside and if i slightly bend them to ensure a connection it works no problem.
when i disconnect the phone from charge or pcsync, it keeps turning off.
any hints wat to do if hard reset dont work?

On a new iPAQ 111, I can't connect to a network wirelessly

Have you tried resetting your iPAQ? You do that by pushing the little button on the side with the stylus. The screen will go blank for a bit, and then windows will restart. I had bought mine used, and when I got it, I had the same problem in that I never got the screen that let me select the wireless network. It fixed mine. Once it is working again, try selecting "View WLAN Networks" again, and you will see a list of networks that it can hear. If the SSID Brodcast is enabled on your wireless access point, you will see your network there. If SSID is not enabled on your WAP, you will need to type in the name of your network before it will find it.

Hope this helps. Sorry it was so late in being posted.

AIRTEL GPRS settings for HTC Touch P3452


On Windows Mobile 6.x, the steps to configure are as follows:

1. Activate Airtel Live by sending the following SMS to 121: MASALA ACTIVE.
2. The service takes atleast 3-4 hours to get active. Restart the phone and resume configuring.
3. Tap Start -> Settings.
4. Select Connections Tab and tap Connections.
5. Select Advanced Tab, tap Select Networks button to bring up Network Management.
6. Under "Programs that automatically connect to the Internet should connect using:" drop down, tap the New button.
7. In the General Tab, type the name of the settings as Airtel Live
8. Select Modem tab, tap New...
9. Type the name of connection as Airtel Live, select the modem as Cellular Line (GPRS) and tap Next.
10. Type Access Point Name as and tap next.
11. Leave username, password and domain blank and tap finish.
12. Select Proxy Settings tab. Tap "This network connects to the Internet". This should enable the next check box option.
13. Tap "This network uses a proxy server to connect to the Internet".
14. Type the proxy server as: and then tap Advanced...
15. Tap HTTP, leave the server as and change the port to 8080
16. Similarly tap WAP, Secure WAP and Socks, type the server as but leave the port to defaults. These are optional settings.
17. Tap OK to close the Advanced proxy setup screen.
18. Tap OK to close the New connection screen.
19. The network management screen should now list the new connection you have created in the drop-down. Tap OK to close this screen
20. Tap OK to close the connection screen.

Now you are ready to fire your favourite browser. I have tested this on PIE as well as Opera 9.5 and it works for me.

If PIE reports "Request not authorized by the WAP Gateway", you will need to change the user-agent to anything you can think of using "Advanced Config" tool (thanks to dsixda for suggesting this). I had set it to HTCP3452_Mozilla/4.0 under Advanced Config -> Internet Explorer -> User Agent Custom Base.

I think Airtel has intentionally blocked Mozilla/4.0 user-agent on WM phones. It may be that they cannot restrict Windows Mobile based phones from accessing websites on standard HTTP. On other phones I had tried, I could not get other sites to work with the same settings.

Enjoy Airtel Live for free.

Bluetooth Internet Connection Problem

You have established a bluetooth connection between your Palm and your PC, but you probably haven't configured your internet connection to be shared with the Palm. o do so, open My Network Places by right-clicking it and selecting Properties. The Bluetooth Network adapter was automatically created during the Bluetooth installation. Right click the icon and select Properties. In the General tab select the Internet Protocol components and click Properties. Write down all the information from the next dialog, and click Cancel. Back in the Adapter properties, select the "Sharing" tab and check "Enable Internet Connection Sharing for this connection". Now, to configure the Bluetooth USB, right-click the Bluetooth icon in the system tray and select Advanced Configuration. Change to the Local Services tab and double click "Network Access". Change the type of service to "Allow other devices to acces the Internet/LAN via this computer". The alternative to this option will allow your device to connect to your computer as part of a LAN, but will not have internet access. Note the Configure Connection Sharing button: it'll open the configuration screens we've visited before. But some Bluetooth software will not have this button, hence I guided you through the other route . On your Palm device, a new Connection configuration is needed. From the Palm Launcher open the Prefs application, and switch to Connection. You'll see a list of connections and will tap the New... button. You can assign any meaningful name to this connection. Select the values as indicated in this image. Tap the device name to choose what computer will be used for this connection. Make sure your computer is in discoverable mode. If you tap the Details button you'll see the next screen. Now create a new Network access configuration, using the connection created in the previous steps. Tap Network to go to the next screen. Tap the New... button and enter a name for your Network access configuration. You shouldn't need a username and password. Tap the Connect button and you should see your LAN connection initiating. To make sure the connection is working, still in the Connect dialog, tap the menu Preferences and select Options. Choose View Log and the screen you see will show the negotiation between the Palm and the DHCP server on the network. To check your DNS is working, scroll to the bottom of this log, and enter PING and a hostname. Use the Return stroke as an Enter and If your connection does not complete, or if your Palm shows a Timeout error, try adding a script to this connection. This is common with Palm OS 4. Newer versions of Palm OS should not need any script to work. From the Network dialog, tap the Details button. On the next dialog tap the Script button. On this script dialog enter the following: SEND CR DELAY 1 SEND CLIENT WAITFOR CLIENTSERVER END Hope this works!
