Question about HP iPAQ hw6515 Pocket PC

4 Answers

Unit turns off by itself

Can anyone tell me why my HP iPAQ 6515 keeps fading and shutting off by itself. I try to give it a soft reset and it doesnt even make it through the reboot when it fades and shuts off again. It works fine when it is in the cradle but wont stay on for very long before the screen fades and then shuts off when it is out of the cradle. Even when fully charged. I gave it a hard reset as well and it still does the same thing.

Finally I solve this problem by soldering a short wire on cover switch, that is not reliable at all.

also works for me, but only for 2 months.

I have been having the same problem. I believe it to be a particular switch that senses when the battery door is closed or shut. It is a very small momentary switch and I intend to replace it as soon as I get a chance. I'll let you know how that works.

I´ve a pda hp h5455 that don´t start , i´ve tried to do a hard reset and charge it via USB and nothing hapens


To do the hard reset, while on battery (NOT A/C) power, hold down the two outside front-panel buttons (Calendar and iTask), While holding them, press the reset button with the stylus. Keep these buttons all pressed until the image on the screen begins to fade (about 4 seconds), then you can release the reset and application buttons. To restart your iPAQ, you must then plug the unit into A/C power, or do a Soft Reset by again, pressing the reset button with the stylus.

I am sorry?

You want me to give you my solution for nothing and want to charge me $9.95 for it.

Device switches off by itself


the problem is a little microswitch that tells the unit to power off when the back cover is removed... it seems to be a common problem, causing the screen to go 'interlaced' and reset or hang, sometimes shaking causes it to restore itself. solution is remove the back cover (4 torx screws and 1 philips screw under the warranty tag) and glue the switch in the up position...

Ipaq hw6500 wont turn on


If the battery was inserted to the unit prior to its storage, it might be the cause. Try charging battery directly in its cradle overnight or use new battery pack. If not then its hardware and/or formware problem. Sometimes electronic gadgets fail to work after prolonged storage due to to capacitor/condenser in its circuitry.

Try soft resetting your ipaq. If that didnt work then try hard resetting it, note that you will lose all the data in your ipaq

Hanging


Do you think you could provoke a hard reset by leaving the battery out overnight?
