Question about HP iPAQ hx2410 Pocket PC

Start up problems

I have upgraded to WM5, and for a couple of days everything worked out fine. Then suddenly the iPAQ started to freeze during start up. When I try a soft reset the process starts, but after 10-15 sec it freezes again and the screen becomes white. From there I have also tried a hard reset several times, but it keeps freezing during start up. I have charged the battery through the night but it does not help. Now I try to remove the battery for some hours and hope it will completely reset everything. Any other suggestions??

Tell me frankly,
did you really do hard-reset and the problem still?, my experience is that hard reset process is that it will do re-installing a default windows to your devices. If you sure it was a start-up problem, then the problem is solved already.
Unless the problem is similar with Ekse's one (it maybe after he/she 'googling' with few technician and got that result).
I suggest to re-flash your BIOS using PC.

I had the same problem few years ago with my 3950

I kept it on the charger and it just kept doing that, and finaly died totaly.

I send it to repairs and found out it was a motherboard / chipset problem and the motherboard would need to be replaced.

Try clearing IE cache, this can use up all the device memory.
IE>tools>options>Memory>Delete Files(& history if you want).
You should do this on a regular basis maybe once a week.

Gps wont start

The ipaq requires a GPRS connection to download and refresh its GPS files every 2 days. Check the GPS symbol at the bottom right corner of the screen. It has to be blue. If it is grey, the GPS files need to be refreshed. Hp recommends MapAsia and it works, though the landmarks are not correct. The roads are ok. I do not know about diginav.

Check the setting on the ipaq, go to ActiveSync and tools, options, server and make sure calendar, contacts and inbox are not selected here. Then, put the pda in its cradle and let it do a sync, it should change the settings on the desktop and the (sync status on device) should disappear. I had a similar problem and after de-selecting these, everything worked fine.

IPAQ 2795 freezes during boot up.

I had the same problem. Contacted HP customer service chat, and got the following answer that
solved the problem:
1. Remove the battery for 30 minutes.
2. Insert it again in the iPAQ.
3. Perform a clean reset on the iPAQ and at the same time charge the iPAQ.
To perform a clean reset please follow these steps:
Press and hold the Calendar button, the Power button, and the Messaging button.
While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ.

The problem can also be solved by getting a new battery, and performing the clean reset while charging (using the portable charger, not the cradle).

Error message

This original question is so old it probably won?t help the original poster but instead is meant for anyone who runs across this in the future with a similar problem. If you haven?t already done so backup your data, remove any extra cards or plug-ins and do a cold-boot. If that doesn?t work the next step is to remove Active Sync and install the latest version from Microsoft. If that doesn?t help then the next thing I would try is syncing to another PC and then another cradle if possible. If the problem persists the only thing left to try would be reflasing the ROM.

My Ipaq is stuck Hello, I have this model Ipaq and I thought from the beginning that something was wrong with it, but I thought maybe is me, the user. Now I can not turn it on. Actually, I can turn it on from the on/off button on top, but I have it only turns on and never gets to my password sreen no matter where and how I touch the screen. It seems like the screen is stuck. I like these PDAs, they do what I need them to do for me, but the operating system on them simply is TERRIBLE. The fact that now I have the feeling is nothing I can do to turn it on anymore and the fact that I did not get a chance to back it up recently, means that I am going to loose everything on it in the event I have to maybe take the battery out to try to turn it on that way. This PDA I have the minute I take the battery out it resets and erases everything on it. It seems like the back-up battery does not play a role ast all. By the way, what kind of system is that of loosing everything if you take the battery out? These PDAs are practically similar to the phones and I do not understand why it has an otion of changing the battery if you have to reconfigure it every time you put a new battery in. This is beyond my understanding and makes this item very faulty, wouldn't you say so? If I can not ever turn it on without loosing my info on it I will never use a PDA again and I am willing to smash this one to wall, I am so upset. I hope you can help me because I am very sad at this moment and I have a lot of work in it in which I put a lot of time and I will be very sad if I loose it. Thank you so much and I hope you understand my frustration. Sincerely, Daniela Geana
