XDA IIs hangs and will not start


I just bought my O2 XDA IIs from eBay. Its supposed to be a new box. However, it just hangs . After that it will not restart. A hard reset does not work. I charged the battery overnight so I don't think battery could be a problem ( but I could be wrong). The only time it starts is if I take the battery out, put it on charging for a while and then try to restart the XDA. This time, the XDA starts but only to last a couple of minutes before it hangs again. For the last few hours I have been just trying to set the XDA up (first time set up) but it just hangs!! Can anyone help?

    It might not be the battery. I have already charged it overnight. If its the software/hardware issue, what's the way forward?

    I've just installed active sync on my laptop. I took out the battery, put it back in then placed it in the cradle. Its not hung since then.. this has been on for the last 20 minutes or so. I'm wondering if I can upgrade the ROM which might help? I don't want to return it. I still think upgrading the ROM might resolve issues. Any ideas? I've got Windows 2003 on the PDA. How can I update the latest ROM?

Probably got a DOA unit. Most ebay sellers allow exchanged or refunds for DOA products within a certain timeframe of purchase.

Otherwise, I would try taking out the battery and leaving it overnight to drain everything inside fully then trying again. If it hangs it is most likely hardware/software and not battery.

    Like I said, it's it isn't too late, return it. Otherwise see if someone might be selling the board for it on eBay and replace the board but that could be tricky.

    That definitely might work if you can find a firmware download.

    Dig through the forums at and you should be able to find the firmware for your model and instructions for upgrading it.

Hi there. I have the same problem with my O2 XDA IIi. But I found that inserting the power adaptor in and out brings back the volume and all is fine for a few hours. The problem could be a power socket or the audio jack. Either one could be broken and may need replacement. Good luck.
