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 or try for cooked roms. Read the installation instructions carefully and you shouldn't have any problems.

Could you tell me what has to be done when the only item appearing on the screen is MC70?

Resetting the EDA

There are two reset functions, warm boot and cold boot. A warm boot restarts the EDA by closing all running
programs. A cold boot also restarts the EDA, and also resets the clock. Data saved in flash memory or a memory card is not lost.
Perform a warm boot first. If the EDA still does not respond, perform a cold boot.

Performing a Warm Boot - Soft reset

Hold down the Power button for approximately five seconds. As soon as the EDA starts to boot release the Power button.

Performing a Cold Boot - Hard reset

To perform a cold boot simultaneously press the Power button and the 1 and 9 keys.

My m900 dontload the windows

It must have been some application you have installed. I don't see any other option than to hard reset your device. You, most probably, already know that a hard reset will return your device to its factory defaults, thus deleting all programs you have installed, as well as your personal data and settings. Hope you have a recent backup, to be used afterwards. Otherwise, you'll have to start setting up your device from scratch, just like when you first purchased it. Anyway, to hard reset your device, press and hold both the power button and the reset pin with the stylus pen, for some seconds. Release them. Your device will reboot. As soon as the first black boot screen comes up, press and hold the record button, until a confirmation screen comes up. From this point, the procedure is timed: release the record and press the camera button. If you miss the timeout, your device will simply soft reset, and you'll have to start the hard reset procedure all over again.
Hope it works for you.
Regards, Carlos

My touch screen froze, so I did a soft reset. This didn't work. So I did a hard reset. All seemed to be going to plan until the 'Align screen' appears. I align the screen as instructed but instead of going...

Whenever you do the alignment touch the spot on the screen with the stylus and hold the stylus on the mark until it moves to the next corner.... this may work

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

I-mate jasjam frozen

Hi rossei. this is jamie. I have had this problem for long time but now I tried some else which really worked for me, I hope this works for you too. Well to make it short, disconnect your i-mate jasjam's battry and take your sim card out from your i-mate jasjam and leave it for about 10 to 20 minutes then reconnect every thing back together. There you are, thats fixed now. Its not really 100% solution for this however it works on mine but I do this procedure all the time to get it working, Good luck
