Re: ipaq 5555

If you did a "hard" reset and it doesn't work, it's a hardware problem... Send it in for repair.

My ipaq 5555 boots up with the HP splash screen and then goes to the dreaded white screen. HP told me it was out of warranty and that it would cost $279 to fix it. Anyone got any other ideas ?


if you have the original cd setup just reinstall the software. also do a hard reset on the bottom of the device there should be a pin type hole. hold it for 15 seconds then release.

You may be in need for a ROM update/reinstall. It is pretty easy to do that. You can either go at HP's web site and download a ROM update for your specific model. Make shure you select your operating sistem rigt. Or you can browse the internet for a specific ROM update for your model. I recomand the HP site, and if you have problems regarding the ROM update process, or the ROM and OS version you need, please reply here and I'll guide you throught. Good luck.

HP IPAQ 5555 1.10.13 ROM UPDATE


I thought my 5555 with 1.10.10 was the latest and most stable?? How come i didnt know about 1.10.13 ROM Update... Anyway, i think it is your Camera Update that causes it. But to confirm, which ROM are you using now? Go to "Start" >> Settings >> "Asset Viewer" >> Under Version >> check the ROM Revision. 1.10.10 had no major problems, only sometimes when i couldnt connect to my wireless router / bluetooth problems, but now it is okay, dun worry.

Error message


This original question is so old it probably won?t help the original poster but instead is meant for anyone who runs across this in the future with a similar problem. If you haven?t already done so backup your data, remove any extra cards or plug-ins and do a cold-boot. If that doesn?t work the next step is to remove Active Sync and install the latest version from Microsoft. If that doesn?t help then the next thing I would try is syncing to another PC and then another cradle if possible. If the problem persists the only thing left to try would be reflasing the ROM.
