Sorry to say your data was stored in ram memory and when the power is cut the data is gone forever, there is no way to restore your data from ram memory ones it no longer has any power.

now that it has power again the data will stay in there. So I recommend you use a memory card to store your data, as a harddrive so you wont loose your files. Remember to perform backups also so the device can be restored, incase another power failure.

Lost my blackberry main menu


If you have tried everything, I would recommend a hard master reset:

This is a really simple way to hard reset the BlackBerry Bold smartphone. If your BlackBerry Bold is frozen or for some reason you need it to have it hard reset then here's how:
1. Pull out the battery from the device and wait for a while around 10 seconds should do.
2. Now put back the battery and it should be resetted. Replace the battery.

If you are lazy and don't want to remove the battery you can also try a soft reset first.

Here's how to do a soft reset.
Press alt+shift+del all the same time.
Another way is to do it via the menu
1. Select Options.
2. Select Security Options.
3. Choose General Settings.
4. Then tap on Menu key.
5. Select Wipe Handheld.
This will wipe out all the data on the device.

Palm T3 frozen, tried restart in hole, nothing?


Doing a soft reset A soft reset tells your handheld to stop what it's doing and start over again. None of your information will be lost. After a soft reset, a screen appears that lets you reset the date and time, if needed. To do a soft reset, use the tip of an unfolded paper clip (or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.

If a soft reset does not unfreeze your handheld, you need to do a hard reset. Doing a hard reset Only do a hard reset if a soft reset doesn't solve your problem, or if you want to clear all of your information from your handheld. [!] IMPORTANT A hard reset deletes all records and entries stored on your handheld, including the username that identifies the handheld. Before you do a hard reset, be sure to synchronize.

Not open windows of my pocket pc


Hi there,
You need to reset your i-mate Jam, for doing so please follow these instruction
i-Mate JAM soft reset
Resetting Your Pocket PC Phone

You can perform a soft reset or a full reset. During a soft reset, the device is restarted and only some data in opened programs may be lost. However, a full reset turns the battery off, returns the device to its original factory settings, and deletes all programs, files, contacts and other information you have saved to the device. Therefore, it is extremely important to back up data to a storage card or your computer on a regular basis in the event that a full reset has to be performed.

To perform a soft reset

If your Pocket PC Phone responds slowly, stops responding, or freezes, you can soft reset it. A soft reset causes the Pocket PC Phone to restart and re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in any opened applications may be lost. Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button, as shown on the next page.

i-Mate JAM hard reset
To perform a full reset

A full device reset clears memory, deletes all data and restores the Pocket PC Phone to its default settings. Programs installed at the factory remain, erasing all data that you have created and programs you have installed. Press and hold the power button, and then use the stylus to press the soft reset button at the same time. Be sure you have backed up all your data in a SD card or on your PC before performing a full reset.

My blackberry pearl flip the sms msg icon is missing. i can'y find it. tried everything already. switch on n off. pls pls help


H,you can reset the phone,might restore lost icons.

Note: you will have to backup data cause data might be lost when reset is done.

There are three main types of Reset that apply to the Blackberry. These are listed in order below. Instructions for Blackberry Pearl are slightly different - see bottom section of the Tip.

1) Soft Reset - simply press the ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys.

This reset stops all applications that are running on the Blackberry and will help if you are having problems connecting the device to computer. This reset will not erase any information from your device.

2) Double Soft Reset - this reset is almost equivalent to a full hard reset. First perform a Soft Reset as outlined in Step 1.

As soon as the screen is no longer black - repeat the steps once again exactly as before.

This takes you to another screen showing an hour glass. Allow the device to reset. This helps if the device has suffered a more serious error. Be aware you may loose some information from your device. A backup is advised prior to proceeding if at all possible.

3) Hard Reset - this is the full blown reset and will fully reset the device to help resolve critical errors with software or hardware. Again back up important information before proceeding if possible.

Note: For RIM models 850, 857, 950, or 957, you must insert the end of a paperclip or similar blunt object into a small recessed hole on the back of the unit and depress the switch inside. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Other Models: With the device turned on - remove the battery for 30 seconds or more. Now replace the battery. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Blackberry Pearl: To reset to factory defaults enter 'Options' from the main menu. Scroll to Security Options and press the trackball. Choose 'General Settings'.

Press the left soft key, then scroll to "Wipe Handheld" with the trackball and press the trackball. To initiate the factory reset, your phones security code may be required in order for the process to complete. Your phone will now be restored to its original settings on leaving the factory.

A hard reset can be achieved with the Pearl in the same way as outlined at Step 3 by removing the battery.

Be aware that resets such as these may erase data, such as contacts, ring tones, pictures, text messages and stored Internet files and emails. Make sure to back up important information beforehand if at all possible. You can obtain software to back up the device to your computer directly from Blackberry right here.

Hope this Tip helps. If so please do leave a vote for the solution.

Thanks.

Once the DATA ERROR DISPLAY appears,You will not be able to INPUT or EDIT DATA, though you will be able to recall Data after pressing CLEAR to clear the error message.**YOU WILL
WANT TO SAVE ALL YOUR DATA OR WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN AT THIS POINT, BECAUSE THE ONLY WAY TO GET
THIS DEVICE BACK TO NORMAL OPERATION IS TO PRES RESET IN THE BACK -IF YOU PRESS RESET YOU WILL LOSE ALL INFORMATION PERMANENTLY.


In order to return the memory to normal (allowing further input and editing of data), you must perform the RESET OPERATION to clear the memory of all data-Make sure you have backed up or taken a hardcopy of this information before Resetting or it will be gone and there is nothing you can do to get it back.Once you have RESET you can re-input the data you have written down.

WHAT CAUSES THE ERROR MESSAGE?Interruption of battery power.Severe electrostatic charge,impact,change in temperature
or humidity.Hardware Problem.

Recommendations:Replace batteries every 2 years, regardless of use.Use only CR2032 Lithium batteries.Replace all batteries-Never mix old ones with new ones!
Caution: All data stored is lost if you remove more than 1 battery at a time. The following Info is per the instruction manual-WHICH ALSO SAYS :Be sure you keep a separate copy of all important data that you store in the SF-5100/SF-5300.Hope this helps.

Unwanted hard resets


you have to send it in for service, there noting else we can do. well you can try a hard reset yourself but as its most likely a hardware problem it wont change anything


Just hold down the calendar and today buttons, these are the two outer buttons on the lower left and lower right, then using a stylus press and hold for at least ten seconds the soft reset button this is located on the lower right edge of the unit. The screen should reset and the iPAQ will boot up again.
