HP 6300 iPAQ - Crashes

I never removed the battery. What just happens is that, there were instances that by the time I look into my unit, I see a countdown and then swoosh! everything is gone! No its not a low battery problem, it is fully charged. No its not a software problem, no other softwares installed - reset to factory and still it hard resets!! Note: I have just was an instance the it says "Unrecognized battery" and yet it was never been reply by anything else, straight from the box (sealed)and it is only 5 months old. My first hard reset experience is when it is 1month old! Is there anyone who can answer us to solve the problem?

Re: HP 6300 iPAQ - Crashes

You are not alone. I had the same problem here, the battery is just the one bundled with the device and has worked for a year. Now it always got an error message: "An unrecognized battery bas been detected..." Called HP service center, they had no solution. What a shame! Stay away from HP if you can...

I have an HP iPAQ 6920 with a Keypad Security Lock Code. My son while playing with the phone repeatedly entered the wrong code and now it's not accepting my original code. Also there's now a 2m 08s...


Welcome to Fixya

Passwords are encrypted type. There is no special code that you need to enter to bypass the password for this unit. The only way for you to use this unit again is to do a Hard Reset. Meaning everything will be back to original factory state. If you decide to do that, then please follow the procedure below:

A clean reset clears all user-installed settings, programs, and data, and restores
your HP iPAQ to factory settings.
To perform a clean reset and return your HP iPAQ to factory settings:
1.Press and hold the Answer/Send, Power, and End Call buttons.
2.While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ until the device restarts.
3.When the HP iPAQ restarts, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
The HP iPAQ restarts and powers on.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Low Battery DATA Lose - HP iPAQ Model h5450 Packet PC


The h5450 comes with what HP calls a backup battery. It is built into the device and not accessible by the user. However, the backup battery has only enough juice to power the Pocket PC for a few minutes while you change main batteries. Don't expect it to keep your RAM data alive if the main battery runs out.

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

Cannot power on...


How to correct iPAQ 5450, 5455, 5550, 5555 battery charging problems / dead unit syndrome.

The iPAQ 54xx or 55xx will not power on if the batteries charge is lower than 3.2 Volts, if your battery charge falls below the 3.2 volts level your unit will not turn on, you need to plug the iPAQ into a cradle or AC charge adaptor. Note the charging light on the iPAQ will not flash at all (normally flashes orange) until the battery charge has reached a minimum charge level of 3.2 volts. You then need to perform a normal reset, then the unit should switch on normally.

HP Procedure is as follows:

To charge and reset the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400:

i) Connect the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 to an A/C power supply.
ii) Charge the battery to the minimum level of 3.2 Volts. This will take 5 to 30 minutes depending on the current charge level.
iii) Perform a normal reset.
iv) Power on the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400

It is recommended that you keep the iPAQ Pocket PC connected to the Universal Cradle or Cable when it is not in use.

Updating ROM


The HP 6515 came in various instances from A through F from memory. you need to ensure you have the update for the right instance of the device. Under the battery is a sticker with the information you need, or maybe in the device config screen within the OS

Battery question


No, that is not typical. What might have happened is this: If there was an appointment reminder in your calendar, it could have woken up the unit and left it on till the battery was dead. There should be settings that will allow you to either disable the waking feature or make the unit turn off after being inactive for a certain amount of time.
