i had the same problem and figured out that when i put the screen protector on that it got between the housing and the screen and put just enough preasure on the screen it would not let you do anything.if you put your finger on the screen and apply some preasure and then try to use the stylus it will not allow you to .hope this helps someone.

Basicly you run the setup program on your pc and then it installs it on the pocket pc. I can actually do you a video if you wish, would you like that?

To do a full reset, you hold the calendar and itask buttons (buttons 1 and 4) down at the same time, then insert the stylus into the little hole on the bottom and press gently. Hold all for 4 seconds. The screen should begin to fade. Now release all. If successful, you will not be able to start the machine by pressing the on button. You will have to reconnect to ac power to start it.

That is all there is to it.

When unplug my ipaq from the charger it shuts off. what do i do?


I'm guessing it just needs a new battery. Batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time. You can find batteries on Amazon or Ebay.

Hope this helps.

Resetting the Device

Sometimes there is a need to reset your Pocket PC. Resetting the
device is known as performing a "soft" or "hard" reset.

Performing a Soft Reset

A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any
programs or saved data. Be sure to save any unsaved data within
a running application before performing a soft reset.
Perform a soft reset to:
■ Stop all running applications
■ Install a new application
■ Restart the Pocket PC if it stops responding

To perform a soft reset:

1. Locate the recessed Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ
Pocket PC.
2. Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button.
The Pocket PC restarts and displays the Today screen.




Performing a Hard Reset

Perform a hard reset only when you want to clear all
user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM
(Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have
loaded are stored.

CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data
and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to
lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ
Pocket PC for about two seconds.


3. When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the
Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus
from the Reset button.

Note: If you simultaneously push and hold the Reset, Calendar,
and iTask buttons for more than two seconds, the battery
disconnects. To restart the device, either plug the device into the
AC Adapter or press the Reset button again.
After performing a hard reset, you may need to reinstall
applications stored in iPAQ File Store to restore shortcuts and full
functionality.

4. The Pocket PC resets and powers on.

To return your iPAQ Pocket PC to factory settings after
performing a hard reset:

1. Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer > My Device.
2. Tap the iPAQ File Store folder to open it.
3. Tap Edit > Select All.
4. Tap and hold the selected files, then tap Delete.
5. Tap Yes to delete all file in iPAQ File Store.

Screen


The nature of these devices is that there is no way to really know why it is doing this, but on the bright side there is a way to tell if it is real (ie hardware) issue or just a glitch.

To test that (and maybe fix the problem) all you need to do is backup your data paying special attention to any data and/or programs stored or installed to the system memory rather than the memory card - and then do a hard reset on the unit.

To do a hard reset on your unit, you need to:

1. Hold down the media and task launcher buttons.
2. Tap the reset button found on the bottom of the device.
3. Continue holding the media and task buttons until the screen begins to fade.
4. Release the buttons.
5. The device should begin to restore itself back to the original factory settings.

At this point you will initialize the system as if it were brand new out of the box, entering your info and calibrating the screen. This will likely solve the problem, but if it does not than at least you know it is a hardware issue at that point.

Critical component is either missing or cannot start


Have you tried a soft reset or hard reset yet P ? How about a ROM update ? Seem like one of your applications on the Ipaq is having a conflict so try to remove them 1 by 1 and pinpoint the exact culprit Did you have the programs installed on the main Ipaq memory or a SD card if you have one ?

Help with syncing!


Do you have Activesync installed? What is it doing? Do you have the appropriate boxes checked in Activesync to sync files -- if that is what you really want to do?? Can you copy and paste files from the PC to your "Mobile Device" in Windows Explorer on the PC?
