My iPAQ 5555 won't charge.

well that's really the problem when u go ur phone stocked for a weeks or two. i have my advice.. try charging yout battery manually. how is that? modification is needed. remove your battery from ur phone. and connect it to your charger directly.. (how is that? create a wire that can connect your charger to your battery. make sure u connect the right polarity) in this way your battery will charge for a moment and will give enough power to turn on your phone. because showing up that orange thing when charging up needs an initial power. so that is why. but still u can charge your phone. just live it maybe for an hour. it may work!

Help with pre-owned iPAQ h5555

I have an IPAQ 5555 and although it's old it works pretty well. A few things to be aware of - you need to upgrade the ROM to the latest version. I don't have the links to the downloads but you should be able to find them on the HP site.

The problem that you will likely run into is Windows 7 and Activesync. I did everything via Activesync on Windwos XP - hooked up to my PC and installed software, sync'd appts and contacts etc... Activesync won't install on Windows 7 due to "incompatibilities"

I just installed "Windows Mobile Device Center" for Windows 7 and was able to get my device connected to my machine but syncing is not yet working.

As for WiFi access, from what I remember it's just a matter of turning on the networking via the Ipaq Wirelss app (icon is a little green square) and then turning on WLAN. That will hopefully cause two little left and right arrows to appear up in the top blue bar on the device's screen - the top left LED should also flash green to indicate that you're connected to your network. If the LED is flashing amber then your networking is on but your not connected to anything yet. If this is the case then the icon showing will likely be two arrows with an x. Touching this icon should open a small window called "Connectivity". On this window you can click on the "Settings" link, go to the "Advanced" Tab and rthen click on the "Networks" button at the bottom of the resulting screen.

You should now see a list of available networks - make sure your router is broadcasting Wireless G and not just N or you probably won't see it. If you do see your network's SSID then touch and hold the entry and select the "Conect" 'option on the resulting menu.

Starting out I would keep your wireless security turned off just to keep it simple. If you can connect this way then you can think about securinng your network. Once secured it's basically the same proceudre but you just have to enter your WEP key.

btw if installing some of the HP service packs etc.. for 5555 doesn't work using Windows 7 and the Mobile Device Center (it may .. I haven't tried) you may try loading Windows XP Mode on your Windows 7 box and then installing Activesync in the virtual environment and working in there just to get your device upgraded

Hope this helps. Good luck

Data missing - Ipaq model HP5555 - did not do hard reset


I'm sorry but the HP Ipaq 55xx series store data on a volatile ram based memory. Unlike a nand flash (like usb sticks, memory cards etc) this memory will hold data only as long as it's powered on. If your main battery gets empty you should still be able to retain your files for some 10-20hrs with the backup battery (if it's ok itself and not depleted). After this time the power to the ram memory is cut off and all data is lost.
The problem you face is somewhat related to that backup battery, as it appears it's unable to do it's job and maintain the power to the ram memory at least some 10 hrs. You should have that battery replaced.

There is no way to recover the data from the ram memory as it is stored as an electric charge over some memory cells in the ram chips. When there is no power, these charges dissipate and the pattern is lost.

I'm sorry for having to give the bad news.

Not starting

It may say it is fully charged but I?ll bet that?s not the case. I?ve only had one of my iPAQs die of a battery that won?t hold a charge and what you describe is exactly what it wound up doing, eventually. The batteries aren?t too expensive and if you have the skills and patience you can replace it yourself. Here is a link to a site that sells the replacement batteries and the instructions how to do it: http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GHT&Category_Code=BATT&Affiliate=google

5550 not powering on

was the battery a exact replacement to the one you removed?

also do you have the power adaptor for it put the old battery back in and see if it will run off the adaptor with the old battery plugged in and then you know the issue is with the new battery and not the unit itself.

IPAQ 5550

Performing a Full Reset A full reset is sometimes referred to as a ?hard reset.? Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs, and data from RAM. A full reset deactivates the battery. The power button does not function until the battery is reactivated. CAUTION: If you perform a full reset, your iPAQ Pocket PC returns to its default settings and loses all information that is not recorded in ROM. To perform a full reset: 1. Press and hold Application Buttons 1 (Calendar) and 4 (iTask) on the front of the unit and, at the same time, use the stylus to press the Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ Pocket PC. 2. Hold all buttons until the displayed Full PDF document can be found here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/lpia8006/lpia8006.pdf

IPAQ H5555 connection problems

Hi, This could be due to a few issues, try these soloutions in order below: 1) If you have a jacket connected to the ipaq it could be preventing the ipaq from locating correctly on the connector. Remove jacket and try insering again. 2) Check that active sync is set up to detect the device on the usb port. The cradle for the ipaq may have a serial and usb connector. Ensure that just the usb connector is attached to your laptop. Try connecting again. 3) You may need to uninstall the USB cradle if it was connected before installing active sync. Try the following steps if this was the case: a) unplug the USB cradle b) uninstall active sync c)Click start then click control pannel then click system. Then click on the hardware tab. Look for the device under USB, right click on the device and then select uninstall. d) restart the laptop e) Install active sync f) ONLY after active sync has installed you can now plug the cradle back into the usb socket. g) Now connect the ipaq, it should now detect it.

IPAQ wireless connectivity

always start with the simplest answer first so make sure you have WiFi turned on. Think back, have you changed the wireless security on your router? If so you may need to re-enter the network details or add your iPAQ's MAC address to the access control list on the router. In the bottom right-hand corner of the home screen you should have a small HP Wireless symbol, if you tap it you should get your HP Wireless control panel on screen and can 1: turn WiFi on and off, 2: manually enter the WiFi network details and 3: search for WiFi networks in range.
