Question about HP iPAQ hw6515 Pocket PC

Bios patch download failure

I contacted HP support because my iPAQ was switching off randomly. I was guided through downloading a patch to fix the problem when I guess the original problem occurred, and now it won't work at all. HP wants £171+VAT to fix the problem - I think that this is scandalous as I was following their instruction and it was a known fault!
Any more cost effective suggestions?

    Hard reset doesn't work. The patch download was for the BIOS - so that is corrupted.

Hi,
I always try to resolve things the simplist solution First, so please don,t rate this Post. Until i have had a chance to resolve your Problem Here.
Initially i,d have suggested that if the pc ( easier to refer to ) than the long-winded Pocket pc Or Ipaq.
Was set on a power saver mode, i.e turn off after 30 minutes if using on Battery Power. Or Similar.
My suggestion for you initially, is To Try the most obvious First. Hard-Reset. you can refer to your user Manual to Attempt This.
some are a simple, reset button located at the Bottom of the pc, others require several buttons to be pushed at the Same Time.

If this does,nt work, i can offer you a repair service a quarter of the price you,ve been quoted by the mentioned company, if your UK Based.

    Hi,

    The only thing to probably do, is to have the bios chip re-flashed.

    Still cheaper than HP.

    If you search the net for bios reflashing, they may be able to help You.

    I do know a company called Grains.

    Give them a try.

Hi,

Did you try to flash the BIOS/firmware of your device?

1.) Go to the Master Index of BIOS, FIRMWARE, & DRIVER Updates,
2.) Select the appropriate hyperlink for your model. (in your case it's here http://mobilitytoday.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4846)
3.) Download the most recent BIOS version SoftPAQ (SP) for your Model of iPAQ.
4.) Press the POWER + iTASK + CONTACTS + RESET buttons at the same time so as to enter the FLASH Mode
5.) Make sure your USB connection to the Cradle is hooked-up.
6.) Place your iPAQ in the USB Cradle.
7.) Stop the MS ActiveSync session on your HOST PC: CTRL-ALT-DELETE > TASK MANAGER > PROCESSES.
8.) Hilight WESCOMM.EXE and select "End Process" button.
9.) Run the file you downloaded from HP in step 3.
10.) The iPAQ should now begin Flashing the iPAQ's ROM BIOS

Can't get pass the logo screen


OK, this happened to me just yesterday, and I fixed it. Here's what you need to do.

1. Connect your iPAQ to your PC. You don't need ActiveSync, but you do need to make sure that your PC can actually communicate with your iPAQ.

2. Go to where you extracted the ROM update files. It's probably at "C:\iPAQ\SP26263" or something like that.

3. Download a hex editor. Here's one: http://www.chmaas.handshake.de/delphi/freeware/xvi32/xvi32.htm#download

4. Use the hex editor and open up H2B11020uo.nbf

5. Maximize the hex editor to full screen. Look at the right screen where it says "hp ipaq h1940 1.10.20 ENG". Fill up the top row with zeros. The words "hp ipaq h1940 1.10.20 ENG" will disappear.

6. Within "C:\iPAQ\SP26263", open up ROMUpdateUtility. It won't recognize your device (WHICH IS GOOD). Then you can reinstall the ROM update.
