The Hx 4700 series and the & The Hx2190 have a removable card Compact Flash or SD Card, if the information you want was stored on these you can buy a USB Card reader from woolies plug the SD or Compact flash into the card reader and plug it into the USB port of your PC or mac and it will be readable (no drivers needed). You may also be interested to know that there are updated ROMS available for this model to update the OS & the Office Apps + increase the max capacity of the storage cards that are recognized.

Try hard reset: pressing and holding the calendar and iTask buttons and doing a soft reset for 2 seconds.

Hard resetting a WM 5 HX 4700 is to press and hold the Contacts and Mail buttons and then doing a soft reset. The boot screen will popup with a message “To perform a clean reset, which will clear all data in memory, press the [Calendar] button”

If that fails, try upgrading to wm 6 or wm 6.1 then downgrading afterwards.

I've upgraded from wm2003SE to wm6.1 alkor rc2.2 rom.

Ref. HP ipaq hx4700: "Align screen" after hard reset or battery loss. I know others have had trouble getting past the "align screen" setup; I saw a suggestion somewhere that said the points were registered incorrectly (maybe in some, but not all of this model?); and they had to tap at locations other than the center of the cross symbol. I tried a variety of combinations, and found that if I tap ABOVE the center (but still on the vertical centerline) for the middle, top left and top right locations; and tap BELOW the center (but still on the vertical centerline) for the bottom left and bottom right...it worked. That brought me to the "Stylus" setup screen...which I also became "stuck" on. So far, I haven't found a solution to THAT issue yet. Gee, why can't they make these things simpler?

The official oprating systems of the HX4700, WM2003 and WM5, do not support SDHC card format. Since most 4Gb "SD" cards are in SDHC format (check the label on your card), the file format of your card is likely to be incompatible with the PDA. Get a 2Gb SD card, or go for a Compactflash card for 4Gb to 32Gb of storage space.

Are you sure you got the key correct? You sHure have problem getting your spelling coRect. If you are sure, check if you got the encryption protocol (WEP, WPA, WPA2) and sub-protocol settings correct, and check your SSID, key number (1-4), etc.

HP iPAQ HX4700... | Answered on May 22, 2011

I am not very sure whatever you've tried, but the best trick is trying with another card, of other brand or smaller memory capacity. have you tried any other memory card smaller than 2GB? This is the first thing you should do to diagnose the problem.
Please post back with more details so that I won't repeat whatever you've tried. Thanks.

Test it on another device to make sure it works.
If it is a SDHC card try using a non-HC SD card.

I hope this helps.

Welcome to Fixya

If the router is secured, you muat enter the correct passkey for you be able to connect to that router. You should take note also the authentication encryption used by the router. It should be the same with your iPAQ. commonly used authentication encryption is WPA-PSK, and TKIP encryption.

Thank you for using Fixya!
