To view the amount of charge left in the backup battery, tap Start, Settings, the System tab, and Power.

Hx4700 wont work after failed update on ROM v1.10


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.

Red LED light means a major problem at the charging of the battery.

You have several options to repair it:

1. Leave several hours the PDA with not battery and unplugged from the AC power adapter, then put the battery and leave charging it.

It's more likely that the red light will appears again, but leave plugged it. Sometimes will start charging and blinking with orange color after 30 minutes or so. After that, it will work normally.

2. Use other good working battery to test it.

3. If the above two steps fail, then there is a good chance that the mainboard has a problem, and needs to be fixed or replaced.

Best regards,

IPaq 6365 WiFi Wont Shut Off


There's a little utility I use (just because it's quicker than the usual iPaq Wireless screen buttons) called WirelessSwitcher. http://www.aspecto-software.com/WiFiFoFum/Utilities.htm Maybe this would do the trick for you.

Media Player 9 on ipaq hx4700


The 4700 has a 480 x 640 pixels display and WMP9 will not compensate for the smaller resolution videosthus the less than full screen size play back on video with less than the 480 x 640 pixels size resolution. There is a program that will play the smaller res. videos in full screen on your PDA try TCPMP its free, go here: http://corecodec.org/projects/tcpmp
