Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC
I know this may sound daft but I'm on my 6th PDA now and have got into a habit of turning the unit on by performing a soft reset. Not everytime of course but I may remember that I have had a lot of apps running as i pick the unit up so I just press the reset button to turn it on in a nice clean state. However, on my 4700 i press the reset with the power off and i can't turn it back on again, the only way i can get the unit back on is to remove the battery, then the unit boots up in default. However removing the battery normally is fine and press the reset when the power is on is fine. Can anyone confirm if there unit does the same ?

Hi, i remember reading somwhere that if you hold the soft reset button too long you will deactivate the battery. You can reactivate it by inserting the PDA into the cradle. Hope this helps.
