Hp rx1950 battery life.

Hallo, I' ve already posted a problem about voice rec. button, that i solved myself.
I 'm here again to ask if someone could tell me about its pda battery life:
I'm sure my pda or battery is not damaged ( and it is new ) anyway, as i come from a Palm Tungsten E2 ( whose battery life is about 3d., 1,5 if I used mp3 ), I noticed that my ipaq battery lasts no longer than 1,5 d. about.

I am also having frequent sync. and listening music.
I also have read that palm os pda have a better battery life for slower processror than ppc.
Do you think battery lasts enough ?
Is it normal for this device ?

Re: Hp rx1950 battery life.

I have the same problem, after I did the hard reset and installed no programs, this power problem disappeared. But once i installed any programs, PDA battery life became no longer than 2 days, which is strange.

Locked out of my ipaq

  • press and hold the Calendar and WiFi buttons

  • while holding those buttons down, press and hold the reset button for ~2 seconds

  • When the HP iPAQ screen begins to fade, release the Calendar and WiFi buttons first, then remove the stylus from the reset button.

  • Press reset again.  (Or, plug the device into the AC adpater.)

  • The Pda is now hard reset and restored to defaults stored in the rom memory. the password and everything else should be gone and it should work as if you had just opened it for the first time.

    Rx1950 freeze on soft reset

    You can do a hard reset by doing the following...

    01) Press and hold down the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
    02) While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the "Reset" button/hole on the back of the iPAQ until the screen goes blank.
    03) Release the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
    04) Press the "Reset" button/hole again (so that it resets/powers on.)

    My hp rx1950 won't turn on after a while

    There could be a piece of software running that is locking up the device. You might want to check for updates to your PDA and any software you have installed on it. If that doesn't work try doing a hard reset, which will erase everything, then reinstall one application per day to see if the problem pops up after one of the applications is installed. If that doesn't work, it could be hardware issue, if there is an extra storage device in it pull it out and see what it does. You will have to troubleshoot. Try different things and see what the result is, eventually you'll be able to narrow it down.

    Dropped PDA

    First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.
