Tried to update the rom

bad Idea ROM updates. best is to never do it unless sure it cures a problem that you need fixed. doing Rom up dates are very risky, 1: battery must be good. and being charged so that the process can not be interrupted. 2: you used XP PC of some kind to program that IPAQ rom?> that be last choice, of all. after all most XP computers are infected with virus and malware, and is a virus magnet and not support now for 3 long years, (means its worse every day) why even use any IPAQ, why not just buy some used Android phone and move on, move up. its dead product now. IPAQ is like Elvis, he left the building.. LOL if really motivated to make any think this old here why not ask the real form. Your only recourse now, it repeat the flash over and over praying it works (with full charged and fully good batterY) https://h30434.www3.hp.com/

How to change the backup battery of ipaq 1940?


This PDA is relatively difficult to take apart. I've done it myself and it was very difficult. It is not recommended by any means because you can seriously mess up your ipaq by taking it apart. On the site I gave you after you buy and receive the replacement backup battery, if you do it yourself, will give you a site to get instructions from. You can also send it in to have it done professionally.

Can't get pass the logo screen

OK, this happened to me just yesterday, and I fixed it. Here's what you need to do.

1. Connect your iPAQ to your PC. You don't need ActiveSync, but you do need to make sure that your PC can actually communicate with your iPAQ.

2. Go to where you extracted the ROM update files. It's probably at "C:\iPAQ\SP26263" or something like that.

3. Download a hex editor. Here's one: http://www.chmaas.handshake.de/delphi/freeware/xvi32/xvi32.htm#download

4. Use the hex editor and open up H2B11020uo.nbf

5. Maximize the hex editor to full screen. Look at the right screen where it says "hp ipaq h1940 1.10.20 ENG". Fill up the top row with zeros. The words "hp ipaq h1940 1.10.20 ENG" will disappear.

6. Within "C:\iPAQ\SP26263", open up ROMUpdateUtility. It won't recognize your device (WHICH IS GOOD). Then you can reinstall the ROM update.

You would have to backup your iPAQ probably through your computer instead of on the handheld. Otherwise there is no way to save your applications.

My Ipaq wont turn on properly

I'm afraid you'll have to hard reset your device, in order to get rid of this condition. Be warned that you'll loose all your personal data, but if don't perform the hard reset, you won't be able to use your device, anyway. So, here I go: press and hold the power button, and press the reset pin (on the side of your device) with the stylus pen. Keep them both pressed until your device resets. A progress bar will be shown on the lower part of the display.
Hope it works for you.
Cheers! Carlos

HP Ipaq h1940 won't sync with Vista

Hi. While holding power button, and pressing reset will do a hard reset to your PDA (reset the device to its factory default settings). So if your PDA is working well, don't do it. As for the syncronization with your Vista PC; Winodws XP uses the ActiveSync software for syncronization, and for Windows Vista, Microsoft developed a brand new syncronization software called "Windows Mobile Device Center". It can be downloaded here: (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center-download.mspx). When you download/install this software to your PC, you should be able to connect your PDA to your PC without any problem, and definitely without changing any OS in your PDA or PC. Hope this helps.

I assume you're using XP if you had "Active Sync" as an option. Here is the address for downloading and installing or re-installing as the case may be - Active Sync :
