    I need further assistance, it is very clear what happened, I need a way to have my computer talk to my IPAQ Via the USB Cable.

    I have done a hard reset a number of times, never helps the situation. I can get it to go into Flash mode but just cannot get the computer to recognize the IPAQ

Try to a reset since you cannot do anything on this unit ,To perform a hard reset you need to press buttons 1 and 4 in addition to the reset hole.

Hope that helps........

Cannot get past opening screen or turn off unit. Unit seems frozen


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

When i reinstall the Bios on my Ipaq Hx2410 is fail.


I think you've know already (as an experienced technician) that opening h/w case won't solve anything..
The normal BIOS write is about 20 min (or more), longer than that it could be a problem with ActiveSync or your PC connections.
I'm afraid the ROM chip cannot re-restore because flashing basically format and write your BiosRom chip. Just pray that doing "hard reset" will turn your 'tiny' IpaQ to come alive.

Ipaq wont open


The iPAQ will keep cycling through this alignment screen until it registers all five points correctly. Try cleaning the screen with a micro cloth and if necessary a little conventional glass cleaner. Then careful click on each of the X being careful to just click the center and not drag the stylus. Even the smallest movement across the screen will cause the registration process to fail. If that doesn?t work try doing a cold boot and restart the process.

Ipaq hx2410 beem?


On your iPAQ, locate a file you wish to beam. Tap and hold the stylus on the file, you should get an option to "Beam File" Make sure your fairly close with other device when beaming files.

Bluetooth after ROM-Udate


I had contact to helpdesk: I made again an hard-reset, and now i can use the Bluetoth again with no problem. Now i have only one Icon for bluetooth and wireless on the desktop. Bevor i had also two Icons. The helpdesk said, that at running the Rom-Update you have to shot down firewall and virus-software on your maschine. Then make a hard-reset and run the rom-update again.

Today screen


Check in the Start-Settings-Today-Items and see if things need to be checked/unchecked Hard reset or ROM flash would be something worth looking into (remember to back up your data first!)

My Ipaq is stuck Hello, I have this model Ipaq and I thought from the beginning that something was wrong with it, but I thought maybe is me, the user. Now I can not turn it on. Actually, I can turn it on from the on/off button on top, but I have it only turns on and never gets to my password sreen no matter where and how I touch the screen. It seems like the screen is stuck. I like these PDAs, they do what I need them to do for me, but the operating system on them simply is TERRIBLE. The fact that now I have the feeling is nothing I can do to turn it on anymore and the fact that I did not get a chance to back it up recently, means that I am going to loose everything on it in the event I have to maybe take the battery out to try to turn it on that way. This PDA I have the minute I take the battery out it resets and erases everything on it. It seems like the back-up battery does not play a role ast all. By the way, what kind of system is that of loosing everything if you take the battery out? These PDAs are practically similar to the phones and I do not understand why it has an otion of changing the battery if you have to reconfigure it every time you put a new battery in. This is beyond my understanding and makes this item very faulty, wouldn't you say so? If I can not ever turn it on without loosing my info on it I will never use a PDA again and I am willing to smash this one to wall, I am so upset. I hope you can help me because I am very sad at this moment and I have a lot of work in it in which I put a lot of time and I will be very sad if I loose it. Thank you so much and I hope you understand my frustration. Sincerely, Daniela Geana
