I have just bought an Ipaq RX1950 off e-bay.Unit is in excellent condition.Only problem is i cannot sync the unit to any pc.The unit seems to be trying to communicate and goes on and off intermittantly with the screen blinking all the time it also seems to try to connect via a lan connection on the pc.I am running windows XP and active sync 4.5 with microsoft outlook 2003.The ipaq os is windows mobile 5.I have tried two sync cables,hard reset and reinstalling office 2003 and activesync.My previous unit ipaq 2210 syncs with no problems.Please can you help?

What version of ActiveSync are you using? Open ActiveSync on the PC, then open "About ActiveSync" under the "Help" menu - it should be version 4.5. If not, download version 4.5 from Microsoft as a first attempt to fix the problem. If you are using 4.5, try uninstalling/reinstalling again but make sure you do a soft reset (push the pin on the top of the device) before you connect the Ipaq. If this doesn't work let me know and we'll try some other things.
I have this problem too. The only way I can correct it, is by removing the battery, reinstalling it and letting it boot up again. Then I plug into the USB port for iPAQ and it seems to connect to ActiveSync. It's a real pain.
open active sync on ipaq and connect the cable with pc and ipaq. if not recognised perform a soft reset on ipaq. also check in active sync on pc >file> connection settings> allow usb connections is checked
You need to install Activesync onto your PC. Activesync comes on the CD that came with your Ipaq , or the latest version can be downloaded from here...
Then from your PC (not your IPAQ), open Activesync, click on File, Get Connected and do NOT cradle the IPAQ until it tells you to.
The Activesync on the IPAQ is for wireless syncs, which cannot be done until youu establish a partnership with this first wired sync. You will need a wireless network to do a wireless sync.
