Do a hard reset - note it will remove all your data.

If a hardreset doesn't fix the problem then you either have a faulty touchscreen or other fault in it and you have to send it in for serivce contact HP.

    I'm pretty sure its the touchscreen, but it may be something else you could replace the touch thing over the screen or the whole screen.



    If you find a place which sells parts for your model.

    yeap and just as a caution - as I can't test your device over the internet I can't know for sure where the fault is, and replaceing the iPAQ digitiser might not fix the problem.



    Maybe a fault in the firmware or in the mainboard.



    You can change the firmware / rom yourself but I've only been playing around with my htc / qtek pda, I did have a ipaq h3950 many years ago, I don't remember how it was done, I upgraded the os on it from 2002 to 2003 when it came out.



    You will have to google about that.



    Well good luck to you

There is a code that is unique to your phone only. Search on eBay (ipaq 6315 unlock code) and buy the code for about $20. You will need to give them the IMEI number located behind the battery.

Pass the align screen


Hey :), id be happy to help. You see, I too have a Ipaq except I had Ipaq 4350. Now, I too had the same problem you are having. The reason why you can't pass the align screen step is because somehow you have damaged your screen. And I have come to the conclusion that HP Ipaq's screen is extremely sensitive, ( because I never did anything that bad to my screen for it to be damaged) soo I'd recommend for you to call HP and see if they can repair your problem or give you another one. Thank you and I hope this helps!

My ipaq keeps conecting to gprs


If I understand what your asking. This is how you stop it. Select 'settings' then go into connections window and select 'connections' Now under tasks what do the headings in bold say. If you have "My Work Network" only then you have some other problem. On the otherhand if you have "My ISP" in the 'Tasks' window then that is what is being 'tasked'. Go into 'Advanced' then into 'Select Networks' and change top field with drop down box to "My Work Network" (not 'My ISP'). You got it!!...Stopped it!! Yeh!!

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.

Frozen screen


hello :-) i just talked to another person who was having the same problem as you. And guess what?? the same problem happened to me on my IPAQ 4350. It turned out when I would hard reset my IPAQ it asked me to align the screen but it wouldn't move and it would freeze and not let me pass . But I later found out that my screen was damaged and I got a new touch screen installed and my IPAQ works perfect :-). I would recommend for you to do the same and call HP and see if they could install it for you. Thanks :-}

PAQ 5550 and MMC 4.x (Plus)


so MMC cards are the older version of SD cards. Ipaqs support the fast SD cards and all sizes up to the max.
