Question about ASUS MyPal A626

ASUS MyPal A626 Wouldn't boot

My ASUS MyPal A626 suddenly stopped booting up. Tried to reset it and it would go through the ASUS screen and start into the Windows Mobile startup screen -- the go black. Attempt to restart would only result in the blue LEDs on the selector panel blinking. I tried resetting several times, tried removing the battery several times, same thing. Then, just as suddenly as the problem began, it vanished. Is this hardware or software and if the latter, waht can I do to avoid it again?

    tried to turn on after charging. lights blink but will not come on. tried to reset and take battery out with same results.

    the little switch on the side was the key. Makes sense -- its job is to blank the screen, creating the impression that the unit is off even though it is on.

    I was upgrading the firmware but at some point it failed and the screen just frozen. Then I re-started my A626 but can't boot. I think people out there had similar problems and just want to know how you guys fixed it eventually. Please tell me the steps and I tried to implement it.



    Thanks.

On the right side of your ASUS A626 there is a switch that says "HOLD". Make sure that isn't flipped on.

If your Asus MyPal a626 ends up as a brick because of a failed upgrade, etc. This will restore it as a new device. I assume you have lost everything and it won't boot, soft reset or hard reset. It worked for me on 11/16/2008. Use at your own risk.

The 696 file works on a 626 just fine.

download A696_dump_wm6_2_eng.rar file from here.
http://www.mediafire.com/?czeymj2nl5x

download usbloader.exe program from here
http://www.mediafire.com/?fa9a9vp2knb

download winrar from http://download.com

and unzip A696_dump_wm6_2_eng.rar file from step 1 to nk.nb0

copy usbloader.exe and nk.nb0 file to c:\

Connect usb cable to a626 and pc

On a626 hold power, launch and reset to go to USB mode

from command line run c:\usbloader nk.nb0

if you have problems getting the a626 reconized as a USB device, try other usb ports or a different pc.

I Forgot my password how do i reset it without losing my data


I would like to introduce Windows Password Recovery 6.0 . it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. I Wrote it to an old 128mb USB flash drive do this. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm. You can download it from

Asus A639 wont start


I had this problem on my A639 after going on holiday with it (I think the x-ray scanners did something to it). It started switching itself off more and more as the days went by until one day it went off and never came back. After resetting it, it just stayed on the blue "ASUS Rock Solid Heart Touching" screen. I was worried that it was totally broken and I'd have to pay to get it repaired, but after searching the internet it turned out all I needed to do was re-flash the ROM with a fresh copy (I used the latest ROM). It now works fine and no longer turns itself off... didn't cost me ANYTHING to fix :-)

I am trying to connect my asus mypal to my wireless internet


Hi, I helped a friend of mine with his wifi setup. His WEP Key was on the side of his router. I don't remember the exact work but it was something Key. It was 10 numbers long just right for a 64 bit key. If you are using Win XP there is a wifi setup in there. I have a mypal A626 and had it up and running in a few minutes on my wifi system. If you have security, you will need to find the code in order to get a connection. grader01

Cannot remove the calendar events


Did your friend do a "hard reset" of the PDA before she gave it to you? A hard reset should erase all user settings and data, returning the system to its default state.

The ASUS 626 User Manual (Ch. 1, Pg. 4) refers to this process as a "clean reset". The following instructions were extracted from the user guide:

NOTE To perform a clean reset, press the launch button and
simultaneously pressing the stylus on the reset switch. Then
a warning message appears. Press to do clean reset, or
press to leave the operation screen.
Performing a soft reset will not change the data in the device;
while performing a clean reset will delete all data

ASUS MyPal A632 will not boot up.


Happened the same for me.
After lots of digging & googling I found the simple solution:

At the back of the PDA there is a "Hold" button. Change the position back and it starts to respond as usual before.
