Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Backlight Issue Does this sound like a hardware problem? My HX4700's backlight will not dim. The brightness is fixed at maximum. Moving the screen slider to the left (minimum) causes the screen to go dark. Any other position sets the brightness to max. I thought that flashing the latest bios might help but no. Any ideas?

Just fully charged Sony Clie'---backlight is too dim..How to adjust??


You can set your pen drag function to adjust the brightness.
Click the drop down menu on the top right of your screen, then click "system", then "prefs", then click the button at the bottom of the screen that says "pen". Next, click the drop down menu beside the little icon that looks like your clie. Click that and select "brightness". Now, when you drag your stylus from the bottom to the top of the screen, a little slider bar will appear to adjust the brightness.

Backlight on sidekick 3


Because your screen is broken and that can only be fixed if you have it replaced.

Backlight not working


Did you try to set the Backlight on in the control panel? (settings>system>brightness) The brightness is often automatically set to 0. If you did this already and it still doesn't work, probably try an email.

Backlight problems


Well if you hold the power button too long the PDA will just turn off the backlight. If you just hit the power once and not hold it then it should shut off (of course it really never "shuts off" completly because if it did then you would loose all your data).

E-125 dark screen


Bingo! You hit the problem on the head. If you can still see an image, albeit extremely faint, and the Casio is still working, i.e. playing an mp3 file or whatever, then you definitely have a problem with the backlight. More times than not, this is either a daughterboard problem or a connection problem (rarely have I seen an actual bulb failure though it can happen). One of the more common causes is the tiny ribbon cable connector on the daughterboard. You might try to disassemble it, clean the contacts of the ribbon and reassemble the device. I've also heard of people squeezing in the side of the case to temporarily effect repairs...this is normally more ominous.
