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.'iPAQ%20Parts%20rz1700%20Series'

  • Ekse Jun 28, 2008

    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

a 13 year old relic of the past pulled out of the attic or found at a garage sale for 50 cents.?
hp has no support for this, its now a relic retired state there.
some have 2 batteries , one is soldered down. oops.
first google hit.

google finds then non HP manual , that HP deleted.
here free, give the new batt. 4 hours to charge.

read page 27 , carefully and the gravity of these words

"Keep the battery charged.
The programs and files you install or create are stored in volatile RAM memory. If the battery
completely discharges, all user-installed programs and user data files
created will be erased and you will have to reinstall them. To prevent
losing valuable programs and files, keep the battery always charged.
Optionally, you can store a limited number of programs and files in the
iPAQ File Store folder so that if the battery completely discharges, they
will not be lost."
the store, is a NVram?, not flash. and the STORE has a battery
what is the chances of any 13year old battery still good.(zero?>)

see the coin cell here, it unplugs other models are soldered down.

1710-0bqeoaofrldpq4t1wllrhfnq-1-0.jpg why spend cash on old relics like this. and labor?
so you learned to day it has 2 batteries not 1
and learned it is 13 year old relic of the past, 100% useless in todays world. (buy notepad new for $50 at walfart)

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:

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.

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.
