Hp iPAQ h1945 won't start

Hi,

Saw you anwered similar questions. Maybe you can help me with mine. I broke the battery cover some time ago and didn't use the iPAQ since. I recently purchased a new battery cover. However, the iPAQ won't start. I put it on charger. Nothing lights up. I tried soft reset and hard reset according to the manual. Nothing. Anything else I can try? It was working fine before.

Thanks for your time.

    I have the same problem and I followed what you said. I pressed the keys and I got the white hp invent screen with 1.07 at the top and nothing else happened. What was supposed to happen? Is there something else that I need to do?

    I had my h1945 in a drawer for about 2 years. It worked last time I used it. Now, it is plugged into the charger and I get no light at all and it won't power up. Tried hard reset, no luck

Hello and sorry for the delay.

the h1945 series is a very intresting pda. I have seen all sorts of problems relating this one. There are some things you may want to try. Based on that knoledge I may be able to find what's rong with your unit.
First, check if the back cover fits tight on the back of the unit. It's important because on some ipaq models, there is a small micro-contact that doesn't allow the unit to power on if the back cover isn't attached. I'm not sure if the 1945 has one, it's been 2 years since i've last phisically repaired one of these, but you may look for one yourself. It's a small contact near one side of the back opening, check to see if it can be pressed. If you don't have anything like this just ignore this tip.
Second, leave the pda connected to the charger for about 6 hours. Even if it doesn't do anything. Then try to start the bootloader by pressing the 2 outer keys near the D pad (simillar to the hard reset procedure) then, while keeping those pressed, press the power button and in the same time press the soft reset button with your stylus. You must do this with your charger connected to the pda. It may be difficult to achieve in the first try. Just try to do this a few times and if the pda doesn't respond even now, please post back. Furthermore, if you need more info about these 2 tips please reply.

Can i get on the internet without using a modem card?


Your PDA doesn't have a inbuilt modem or wifi, so you can't use the Internet without a modem card.

Here are the specifications of your iPAQ:

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.
