E800 spontaneously resets

My Pocket PC E800 hard resets spontaneously, sometimes. I don't see any evident cause. After resetting, there are only the standard progem loaded, nonetheless it keeps doing this, so I doubt it is a software problem. Any suggestion?

Re: E800 spontaneously resets

This hard reset is based on a slack joint. You could test it, if you turn your PocketPC on, and tip on the cover, near the Display or the Battery. If the PDA make a reset, your Pocket PC need a repair.

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.

I am not 100% sure if I am correct in this, but I am quite sure that the e400 does not support a serial connection. Only the e800 does.

INTERNET EXPLORER


I have the same PDA but unfortunately I am not the expert. In my opinion it is not possible to install IE separately. It is not known to me that there is any possibility to download IE for PDA as an individual program. If you have already removed all programs why don’t reinstall the OS and it should work properly again. Did you already install Windows Mobile 2003 SE? Please go to www.microsoft.com and download iExplorer! Try to install it!

Screen Lock up


If I understand you right there is problem with Touch screen because, I suppose, a mylar is not attached correctly to the Top Case Assy. This causes a permanent pressure on the screen. I am not sure but there should be changed the top case mylar. In my opinion you should contact Service Partner in your country and ask them what the best way to solve this problem is.

Hard reset after changing battery e800


Like you know if the PDA is without power supply more than 72 hours there is risk of losing data. In my opinion you should be careful about that and data saving is very important. Till now I had no experience with changing battery and I can not give you a precise advice about that.

HX2410 won't start , have to reset every morning


To my experience, tehre's some evidence this occurs when th device is sort of locked up for too many alarms/notifications being prompted while the device is shut off. This may cause a shortage of memory, for which soft resetting is the only way out. Anyway, as long as you don't drain your battery out, it should NOT cause a hard reset (which would imply losing data and third-party software). Bye
