Question about ASUS MyPal A639 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Hardware buttons does not work anymore...

Hi, everybody.

All the buttons on my A639 stopped functionning from last week.

I don't know what could have happen. I realize that all the buttons were not working anymore (stand-by, joypad, front applications buttons, rear hold cursor).
I Think that the hardware is OK, because I was able to hard-reset the device using volume- + task-switcher + reset and confirm with zoom -.
Then I restore from several backups with no success for the buttons
Of course I checked the state of my "hold" button.

I fear that some O.S. file in ROM is corrupted.
Can I solve reflashing ROM with a firmware upgrade? I have WM5 and Asus released new WM6...
Thanks!

    Ok, I solved it by myself... I reflashed ROM with the Asus firmware upgrade to WM6 and now all the hard buttons are working again!

My Asus A639 is also frozen on the blue Heart of Technology screen AGAIN. None of the buttons work, hold button is not active, cannot switch it off. The first time it was fixed by Asus under warrantee - took 5 weeks. The freeze might be related to using GPS software Copilot V6 - not certain.

Help please - how do I do a total reset?

Hi there!! I want to know is it a hardware issue or software issue.. When I pressed that ON button, the laptop start beeping for about 1.30mins and stop. Windows will come up after about 3-4 minutes....


Sounds like you need to use your backup, OR go to Start/ Help & Support/ System Restore, and have your PC go back to maybe yesterday, or to before you know this problem started. Something you did or a program did has messed with your system enough that it sure sounds like it isn't going to keep coming on at all soon. It isn't a hardware problem probably, just your Windows system. A hardware problem usually has lots worse symptoms. Give system restore a try! It works miracles. :) Always everyone should keep a backup of their system at least once a week. I hope if System Restore doesn't fix it for you, that you have a good backup. System Restore takes lots less time than a backup, though, so try that first, please.

Asus mypal A639 keeps shutting down


I had this problem on my A639 after going on holiday with it (I think the x-ray scanners did something to it). It started switching itself off more and more as the days went by until one day it went off and never came back. After resetting it, it just stayed on the blue "ASUS Rock Solid Heart Touching" screen. I was worried that it was totally broken and I'd have to pay to get it repaired, but after searching the internet it turned out all I needed to do was re-flash the ROM with a fresh copy (I used the latest ROM). It now works fine and no longer turns itself off... didn't cost me ANYTHING to fix :-)
