Ipaq H3630 how to do a hard reset

I have tried updating my 3630 with your softpaq SP22898 via
serial cable and cradle, backup worked fine but the update will
not work leaving the ipaq dead. Can still access parrot mode
with similar lack of success using softpaq and same error 105.
Have tried upgrading microsoft activesync to version 4.5 but
again, same port error. Update utility is version 1.13. Please
provide some help, I am completely stuck with a useless ipaq
(although the parrot is very pretty!).

Resetthe iPAQ H3000 and Clear Memory


Resetting the iPAQ

Ifyour iPAQ H3000 responds slowly, stops responding as expected, or“freezes,” try resetting it. A reset causes the iPAQ H3000 to restartand re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in open windows may belost. Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button for about twoseconds.

NOTE:Do not turn off your iPAQ as it must remain on in order to reset.

Clearing memory

Ifyou want to clear all data from your iPAQ H3000 and return it to thefactory settings, you should clear the memory.
Clearingmemory deletes all data and restores the iPAQ H3000 to its defaultsettings. Programs installed at the factory remain, while data you havecreated and programs you have installed are erased.

1.Using the stylus, slide open the On/Off door on the base of the iPAQH3000.



2.Slide the On /Off switch to the Off position using the stylus. Waitabout one minute, then slide the switch to the On position.

Problem with 3630


unfortunatly this isnt a new issue. http://computing.net/pda/wwwboard/forum/838.html It sounds as though your recharging system has went on the fritz. If this is the case then money signs are going to soon be appearing. replacing the charging system is impracticle and the system blocks startup so this would even cause a new battery to not function properly and also probably what ruined your previous one.
