Question about HP iPAQ H1940 Pocket PC

1 Answer

I can't install a certain HP update.

HP has released an update to the iPAQ h1900 series. This update fixes the problem of the calender jumping around to different dates. Whenever I try to install it, it copies a .cab file to my device, but it won't install.

Here's the update:
HP iPAQ h1900 Series Pocket PC - Real Time Clock Update

Were you able to install this update? And what ROM version do you have? Someone I know who was able to install never updated the ROM to v1.10.

    I forgot to mention that a hard reset didn't solve the problem.

    Thanks for your help, but that's what I did in the beginning. I synced it and ran the extractor on my PC. The problem is step 3. On step 3, an install dialog box shows up on my device, but the progress bar never advances. Then it just closes, and the update is never installed. I found the cab installer that gets copied to my device, but it won't run.

    After some experimenting, I find out that this update installs just fine on a ROM version 1.00. I have a hypothesis that this update doesn't work on v1.10.

1. Download the SoftPaq to a directory on your hard drive.
The file downloaded is a self-extracting executable with
a filename based on the SoftPaq Number above. 2. Establish an Activesync connection between your iPAQ Pocket
PC and host PC.
3. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions
to install the Real Time Update.
4. Follow the instructions to perform a normal reset on the iPAQ Pocket PC.


on step 3 you should see the setup on your pdas screen do you see this?


Waiting for your reply. :)

How can i install the latest version Windows Mobile on my HP IPAQ rx 5935 Travel Companion?


Simple answer: you can't, sorry.

All Windows Mobile versions are customised by the supplier to suit the specific device that they're sold with, that's also why Microsoft do not provide the end-user with any support at all for WinMo and refer all such matters to the vendor instead.

HP never released an update even to WinMo 6 for your device, so you are stuck with the original WinMo 5.

How to Perform a Hard Reset on an HP iPAQ

Performing a hard reset on an HP iPAQ is relatively easy, but is a dramatic step in the management of your handheld organizer. A hard reset will completely clear the memory of your device and restore it to the state you received it in from the factory. A soft reset, on the other hand, simply closes running programs and restarts your pocket PC.

Instructions
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Step1
Read the owner’s manual. If you don’t have to do a hard reset, you shouldn’t, and you definitely don’t want to do one by accident. So familiarize yourself with the hard reset protocol offered in the manual.
Step2
Make sure you want to clear all personal settings, saved data and personal files from your PDA. If there are files you wish to retain, save them to a removable disk, or send them to your computer’s hard drive to be retrieved at a later date before performing a hard reset.
Step3
For the HP iPAQ h1900 series, hold down the power button while you use your stylus to hold down the reset button (on the left side of the iPAQ). Hold these buttons for a few seconds until the screen fades to black.
Step4
For the HP iPAQ h2000 Series, press down on the far left and right buttons (calendar and iTask, respectively). While you do this, press and hold the reset button on the back of the iPAQ until the screen fades.
Step5
For the HP iPAQ h5000 Series and H3800 Series, the procedure is the same as the h2000 Series with the only difference being on some models the Today button is used instead of the iTask button.
Step6
For the hw6500 Mobile Messenger Series and hx2000 Series the procedure for the hard reset is precisely the same as for the devices in step 4.
Step7
For the rx3115 and rx3715 models, hold down the Mobile Media button (on the far left) and the iTask button. Then press down the reset button with the styles for a few seconds until the screen goes dark.
Step8
For the rz1710 and rz1715, follow the same procedure as the devices in step 7, with the difference of pressing the Today button (on the far right) instead of the iTask button.
Step9
To turn on your HP iPAQ after your hard reset, either press the reset button again, or plug it into an AC power source.

Tips & Warnings

* If you’re iPAQ is simply slowing down or having problems, try a soft reset (reboot) before resorting to a hard reset.
* Read your iPAQ’s instruction manual to familiarize yourself with how to do a hard reset, and the effects of performing one.
* Do not perform a hard reset unless you are okay with or intend to erase all non-factory installed data and settings from your HP iPAQ.

Where can I get a free upgrade for my HP Ipaq rx3115 for windows Vista?


For compatibility with Vista it should only require installing the newest version of ActiveSync which is free from Microsoft's site. But, If you mean the Pocket PC OS Revision, I don't think you can legally update the OS beyond a version number (Like 3.3 to 3.5) and if your not able to sync with certain Office components, etc. because of the OS, there isn't much choice legally but to buy the upgrade.

Ipaq H4150


Have you used a Vista PC as the host machine? ROM updates can only be done from a Win XP or 2000.

Hook the iPaq to an Win XP or 2k PC, install active sync first, and then get the ROM update again. Run the Rom Update Utility and it will recognise the iPaq and will update it correctly. :)

Doesn't start up


Hi, Based on your post/description, your iPaq 2210 will not power on. It is possible that your battery is deactivated. To reactivate, plug it to the AC power supply/adaptor, press reset at the back of the unit. Assuming no other problem, the unit will initialize back to default factory settings. It's very likely that all your previous/personal settings, files and applications will be also gone. Good luck and pls post back how things turn up. Kind regards.
