Ipaq 5550 keeps re-booting

My Ipaq 5550 just keeps re-booting itself, even when I cut it off. I can cut it off, and it will start up by itself. What do I need to do?

    I have the same problem that my IPAQ H5550 keeps rebooting without any reason even when is turned off. Has anyone a solution for this behaviour?

    I have the same problem. Hardware reset (cal + itask + reset) doesn't help. Bizarely, mine does work while the reset button is held in. The problem comes and goes.

IPAQ 5550 can I override the pin number?

Simple Solution:

Perform a hard reset and then attempt to login repeatedly (10x).

You will then be prompted if you wish to reset the pin entirely.

Good luck,

To do a full reset, you hold the calendar and itask buttons (buttons 1 and 4) down at the same time, then insert the stylus into the little hole on the bottom and press gently. Hold all for 4 seconds. The screen should begin to fade. Now release all. If successful, you will not be able to start the machine by pressing the on button. You will have to reconnect to ac power to start it.

That is all there is to it.

5550 not powering on

was the battery a exact replacement to the one you removed?

also do you have the power adaptor for it put the old battery back in and see if it will run off the adaptor with the old battery plugged in and then you know the issue is with the new battery and not the unit itself.

Place a piece of tape on the screen and lift gently to lift touch screen from pad and it should separate if dry.

A full reset deactivates the battery. The power button does not function until the battery is reactivated. CAUTION: If you perform a full reset, your iPAQ Pocket PC returns to its default settings and loses all information that is not recorded in ROM. To perform a full reset: 1. Press and hold Application Buttons 1 (Calendar) and 4 (iTask) on the front of the unit and, at the same time, use the stylus to press the Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ Pocket PC. 2.

PAQ 5550 and MMC 4.x (Plus)

so MMC cards are the older version of SD cards. Ipaqs support the fast SD cards and all sizes up to the max.
