Question about HP iPAQ RX1710 Pocket PC

1 Answer

The pocket pc does not start up

The machine does not start up. I did both soft and hard reset but when it boots up it comes to the screen alignment stage and does not respond from there. I kept tapping th screen at various points in response to the screen message but it does not proceed any further from this stage.

    Have the same problem. When I turn it on, it shows the reboot screen and it is stuck there. I try to reset it and take the battery out to reset, it takes it a long time to reboot and never goes into the regular screen so I can use it.

It's broken, get it fixed ! (omg labor costs huge)
if wanting to spend huge cash on something worth
$1 dead or $5 working right, (I see these for $1 at goodwill)
then buy new batteries first. All have a big one and some a well hidden tiny one inside, and both are bad this old for sure.

ever seen a 14 year old battery work, ? that is the age now.
2018, why thing any battery lasts that long.?????

It sounds like your ROM image is corrupted somehow, reprogram the rom image. You can download an Win Mobile 5 image from www.clubmate.com or try www.xda-developers.com for cooked roms. Read the installation instructions carefully and you shouldn't have any problems.

Cant switch fone on, its saying align screen all the time very gratefull for your help

Hi, if you havnt tried the soft reset, you can try that. If that doesnt help you can do a hard reset.
Hold down the power button and then use the stylus to press the soft reset button on the phone.

Thank you.

I have an imate pda2k pocket pc and is working good. Out of curiosity i tried hard reset and it ends to align screen. Everytime i made a hard reset the screen show " tap the screen to setup your pocket pc"...

tap and hold on align target until it moves to next corner or next step, if you are using windows 6 or 6.5 you should be very much accurate on taping and holding to align the screen.

Resetting the Device

Sometimes there is a need to reset your Pocket PC. Resetting the
device is known as performing a "soft" or "hard" reset.

Performing a Soft Reset

A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any
programs or saved data. Be sure to save any unsaved data within
a running application before performing a soft reset.
Perform a soft reset to:
■ Stop all running applications
■ Install a new application
■ Restart the Pocket PC if it stops responding

To perform a soft reset:

1. Locate the recessed Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ
Pocket PC.
2. Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button.
The Pocket PC restarts and displays the Today screen.




Performing a Hard Reset

Perform a hard reset only when you want to clear all
user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM
(Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have
loaded are stored.

CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data
and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to
lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ
Pocket PC for about two seconds.


3. When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the
Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus
from the Reset button.

Note: If you simultaneously push and hold the Reset, Calendar,
and iTask buttons for more than two seconds, the battery
disconnects. To restart the device, either plug the device into the
AC Adapter or press the Reset button again.
After performing a hard reset, you may need to reinstall
applications stored in iPAQ File Store to restore shortcuts and full
functionality.

4. The Pocket PC resets and powers on.

To return your iPAQ Pocket PC to factory settings after
performing a hard reset:

1. Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer > My Device.
2. Tap the iPAQ File Store folder to open it.
3. Tap Edit > Select All.
4. Tap and hold the selected files, then tap Delete.
5. Tap Yes to delete all file in iPAQ File Store.

Netbook pro won't startup

Go to netBookPro boot menu as follows: Whilst the splash screen comes up insert a paperclip in the tiny reset hole near the enter key, then press Ctrl + D +Esc(On). Now the netBookPro boot menu should come up, then select the option : !) Clean start main OS (just press Shift +1). Now you should get a reboot with the initial OS-settings. I experienced the same problem after running xclkcfg.exe (an overclock utility for the Sigmarion III ) so best stay away from this utility. have fun Rob.
