Some software program is causeing it to slow down.

try uninstalling some of your programs, or preform a hard reset witch returns the pda into the original state.

How Do I Perform a Hard Reset?

Perform a soft reset when:

  1. Press and hold the Calendar and iTask buttons.
  2. While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ Pocket PC for about two seconds.

  3. When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
    CAUTION: If you push and hold the Reset button for more than two seconds, the battery disconnects. To restart the unit, either plug the unit into the AC Adapter or press the Reset button again.
  4. The Pocket PC resets and powers on.

Sony Bravia KDL46V5100 shuts itself off. Will not stay on for longer than 10 seconds. Its under mfg warranty. Worldwide Tech (with warranty service ordered by Sony) says there is an indefinite delay in...


Rightly you have given the set to the authorised service centre as it is under warrranty but then lack of spares is a sub clause that is put into the warranty agreement of all companies- it says repairs subject to availablity of spares. Now hat do we do when the sole authority says so. The first thing you need to do is to lodge a complaint with the area customer service centre.Also make a complaint to the consumer protection centre. They are responsible to get this sorted immediately or replace your set without delay. Unless you keep up the pressure the matter may be delayed. If Sony needs to save their customer from going public , the action will be faster.They cannot expect to delay a repair for an electronic unit which can become obsolete in short time. Hope you can decide from my advice. Good day.

Where is the courtesy light delay switch located on a 1992 corvette?


The courtesy lights as well as the map lights (located on the bottom side of the rearview mirror) will come on when you open a door (unless it's bright outside) and will remain lit for approx 30 seconds and then will turn off. This is verbatim from my '92 Corvette owners manual - The map lights can be turned on and off, but there isn't a delay switch, persay. Hope this helped.

The PC is not switching on


Hi. I assume that you plugged in your original battery after it was out a while. When your device's battery is drained, all the data in your device may be resetted (changes according to your backup battery's condition). So you should first try to plug it into AC power source for a couple of hours without touching it (Let the battery become usable enough). Then, your device should open without any error, but it may take a while because it will install the Operating System from ROM. In most cases, pluging out your battery won't destroy any internal parts of your device, it may just reset it to factory default settings. If there is an error, here is how you can hard reset your device:
HP iPAQ rx3715 Hard Reset:
1. Hold down the Mobile Media button (on the far left) and the iTask button.
2. Then press down the reset button with the styles for a few seconds until the screen goes dark.

3. To turn on your HP iPAQ after your hard reset, either press the reset button again, or plug it into an AC power source.
Hope this helps.

Two switches with two hallway lights-one delays going on.


What it sounds like to me is that the second light may have fluorescent bulbs - either the compact fluorescent type or maybe a circular bulb. The fact that when you turn off the switch and then immediately on and it works fine, also makes sense if that is the case.

I got the same problem. I even tried to plug the battery to the second battery charging slot, still couldn't get it back to life. But the Ipaq screen lights on with progress bar progress for about 5 seconds, then dead again. I even doubted the battery was toasted.
I gave it a final shot:
1. Remove the battery, and then put it back.
2. While the screen lights on, within 2 seconds, cold reset the unit by press the hole with stylus and push the power button at top in the same time.
In my case, the progress bar will keep going until I see the tap screen instruction and everything back to normal. But it reminds me that the removable battery is totally discharged. So I put it in cradle and I am able to synch it with my PC. Everything seems o.k. while it sits in the cradle, except the charging light won't turn red.
When I remove it from the cradle, it still lights on, battery shows 99% which is healthy. but when I turned it off, it won't start anymore. I have to repeat the above steps to revive it. Sometimes I have to remove the battery and wait for a while and then put it back, so that the screen can light on to give me chance to cold reset.
Conclusion: Maybe need a new battery. I will check Ebay to get one.
Please post if you have other solutions.

Turning off ipaq


I noticed the same thing on my IPAQ, and found that if I push the button (somewhat quicly) TWICE that it turns it off completely. Also, you might want to check to see if you have it set up so that it will turn on when you push ANY button (it may not make a difference but I found that when I was putting mine back into the wallet holder I use, I'd inadvertently hit a button and it would turn back on!) :>
