Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC
I was connecting to wi fi when unit turned off. I turned it back on but it cut off again shortly. Another attmept to turn it on resulted in the blue Hp iPaq screen coming on but nothing further. I cannot turn it off, get past this page. I disconnected battery for short time. Same result. Disconnect several minutes. Same result. Plugged into ac charger, usb port on laptop. same result. The battery locks are secure, battery charged.
Did soft reset and hard reset but no help.
If none of the reboots work and you still need to put it back to factory settings try removing or replacing the internal back up battery. I have provided a link which will show you step by step on how to accomplish this. GOOD LUCK! Sounds like you have tried every other option.
