Question about Orange SPV C500 Pocket PC

Orange SPV C500

My SPV C500 stopped working this morning (for no obvious reason) and will not now get past the initial boot up screen when i reboot (remove and replace battery). Any suggestions on what else i can try? is there a way to reboot using the keys? any chance Orange would be able to fix it?

Do a Hard Reset by holding down and holding down both left and right soft keys when turning on phone, til you see the Reset screen. All apps and data you put on phone since new will be lost, but original mfg software will reinstall itself.

    If the above Hard Reset doesn't work, try this:

    1) Remove the battery and wait 5 seconds. Replace the battery

    2) Press and Hold voice recorder button (below power button on the left)

    3) Power-on the device

    4) The device will enter a special power-up mode

    5) "Card found" will be displayed on the screen

    6) Shortly after you may receive two options:

    "Press any key to enter boot loader"
    "Press action button to enter diag mod"

    7) Press and hold the Action button

    8) After a few seconds a menu will be displayed

    9) Select "Erase IPSM" and wait for the screen to display "PASSED"

    10) Then move to the left with the navigation button and select "END"

    11) A screen with three colours will be displayed

    You may now remove and replace the battery and perform a normal power up. :)

SPV C500 Charging problem

If you mean the amber 'charging' light does not light when charging, note your PC must have a working Microsoft ActiveSync installed on an XP, Mobile Device Manager on a Vista PC, before the phone will charge from a PC USB port.

If it will also not come on when the AC charger is connected, then I would suspect a bad light or what ever supplies the light.

How do you know it is not chargeing if the phone comes on. Are you saying the phone will only come on when plugged in a PC or AC Charger? If so, I would suspect the battery. Unplug it and clean both the battery terminals on the battery those on the phone the battery mates with. You can use a clean pencil erasure.

Batteries are cheap on ebay.
