Re: Color problem.

DO NOT tamper with your pda if it stil in warranty. The following solution is for out of warranty pda'S ONLY. Sounds like your LCD cable is loose. You need to reseat the cable. It is only slightly tricky but can be easily done by a novice. You will need a Tortion screwdriver with a T7 socket to unscrew the back plastics (only 4 screws). Once done look on the circuit board and notice the horisontal brown plastic socket running down the side of the circuit board. You should also see a brownish cable running to the front (to the LCD). This is your LCD cable. Reseat it very gently. Do not use any force here.

Htc herm200 can't charge


Hold down the two soft-keys (the ones below the screen) and while you have them held down you poke the reset button with your stylus. You'll then see a message on the screen saying 'press R to reset, X to exit'. Pressing the R key on the keyboard will hard-reset the device. It'll now take a few minutes to reboot and load all of the operator customisation etc.

This procedure will hard reset the HTC TyTN, Vodofone v1605 and all other HTC Hermes variants.

Hard reset


Occasionally, you may need to reset your device. A normal (or soft) reset of your device clears all active program memory and shuts down all active programs. This can be useful when your device is running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs. If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work will be lost.
You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard reset should be performed only if a normal reset does not solve a system problem. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its default settings — the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on your device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed programs will remain.
To perform a soft reset
Use the stylus to press the RESET button found on the lower left side of your device. Your device restarts and displays the Today screen.

  1. Press and hold the Left SOFT KEY and the Right SOFT KEY, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the RESET button at the lower left side of your device.
  2. Release the stylus, but continue pressing the two soft key buttons. Release them only when you see the following message on your device screen: “Press Send to restore manufacturer default, or press other keys to cancel.“
  3. Press on your device. Warning! Your device will be set back to factory default settings. Please ensure any additional installed programs and/or user data have been backed up before a hard reset is performed.

Have you tried doing a hard rest. Here is the procedure;
Caution if you perform a full reset, your phone returns to its default settings and looses all information that is saved on phone (Like contacts, messages, emails, mms etc).
Hard reset: Press and hold the Left SOFT KEY and Right SOFT KEY, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the RESET button at the bottom of your device. You will be presented with a menu saying 'press R to reset, X to exit', if you press R Your device will be set back to factory default settings.

The Screen is back and it won't charge


Hello, it isn't that simple as a broken charger. Try the following thing. Connect battery to the PDA, check that the battery LID is connected FIRMLY to the body (there is a contact there that woun't allow the PDA to start if the lid isn't connected properly, you may want to check it too, look carefully for a small black thing and check that it can be pressed). Then connect the pda for half hour to the charger, even if no light or amber led is flashing. Then make a master reset as showed here and connect the PDA to a usb sync cable with your computer. Press simultaneous the soft reset and the power button, then press only the soft reset button. The PDA should start. If not, there is a problem with a DC converter component on the mainboard or the connector I was talking about before. Even if the charger is broken, your PDA should power on from USB cable. Good luck, feel free to ask further questions and always remember to rate replies received from this site :)

E830 hangs on soft reset


Believe me it is not easy to say what the problem can be. Your problem is very specific and I don`t believe that someone can give you some help because this “software” that you have implemented is unknown to other users. I suppose that there must be some bug in software and after installation there is some memory error. I also know that e830 needs about 3 or 4 minutes for reboot.
