H2215 Blutooth Radio failed to turn on

Found many people with several different modles of ipaq having the same problem. So far I have tried the following: soft reset, hard reset, updateing the rom to 1.10, reverting the rom to 1.00, reupdateing the rom to 1.10, turring off all options but serial port in the set up, and removing all item from the today screen. Nothing works. Am I looking at a hardware problem and if so what are my repair options. :<

Re: H2215 Blutooth Radio failed to turn on

The problem was in the HP ProtectTools security aplication. After disable the aplication and do a hard reset the bluetooth works. I had see that after the hard reset begins a process where some HP software are installed again. One of these software is the Broadcom driver of the Wifi/BT (You can see it for two seconds in the top bar). I think that the ProtectTools blocks some file upgrade (DLL, Exe, config file, etc.) that causes the problem. After solve the problem I have restored a full system backup done before disable the ProtectTools and do the hard reset, and all still works fine. I hope this can help you.

Bluetooth problem


If I understand your setup, the computer's got the internet connection, and you want to bluetooth your wife's iPaq to the computer and through it out to the internet? And you've managed to pair the iPaq and the computer? Have you set up a pass-through relationship on the computer using ActiveSync? Good luck.

Unresolved items


This is more of an ActiveSync problem than an iPaq problem. Don't you just click "Resolve items" and ActiveSync either updates your handheld or the PC depending on which one you choose to get precedence?
