I have purchased a new ipaq hx4700 and immediately installed the latest ROM version (1.1) to get WMP version 10. This went fine but Outlook 2002 is now not installed on the ipaq. Is there a way to retrieve/download this, or at least the original ROM image?

The default e-mail client on pocketPC 2003 is the "inbox" which is merly a utility for retreiving & sending e-mail.
There is no "outlook 2002" on pocket PC's.
The Outlook 2002 installation cd comes with most iPaqs and is intended for your pc, not your ipaq.

The problem you have is related to the battery's nominal tension value. For the pda to light up the amber led dispaying that the battery is charging the tension value at the battery pins must be above 3.27Volts. If this is under that value the PDA's charging circuitry woun't power up and therefore the amber led woun't turn on.
The battery you have bought is probably defective or not compatible with your pda model.
If you are shure this is not the case or if the battery works with other pda's (if you have the possibility to check that), try a master reset at first and if this doesn't help try a firmware (ROM) update, you may find the ROM files on HP's site. For more informations please reply back.
At some point when I installed some windows updates, my Outlook started asking if I wanted to allow ActiveSync to access Outlook's data and for how long.
Do you get a dialogue like this when you sync while Outlook is running? Could it be that when it's not running, you aren't given the dialogue and thus permission is not granted to ActiveSync to access the data?
No, an install of OUTLOOK over OUTLOOK data will NOT lose the data.
However... you may want to backup the files first ??
What version of OUTLOOK are you currently running ? If it's already 2002, I might be tempted to ignore this message.
If an ipaq loses power , then all data in RAM is lost. It's important to keep it charged.
It's also important to do regular backups.....
so there are two backup options - one is thru Activesync which will backup to your PC and one is the IPAQ's own backup program which will backup to the IPAQ FILE STORE (area in ROM) or a SD card.
I do the Activesync backup every time I sync and then the IPAQ backup about once a week or immediately before a system change.
Here is a guide which best explains it
this guide suggests doing a full backup, but it's fine to do an incremental backup each sync - this means that only changes will be added to your backup and makes the whole process much quicker.
So under Programs is a program called IPAQ Backup. The default location is IPAQ FILE STORE which is an area in ROM and is not lost thru a power failure nor hard reset.
You may also choos to backup to a SD card - a full backup will need roughly 20MB. So in this backup procedure, if you click on 'Browse' you can choose a SD card.
A restore can then be performed from the IPAQ FILE STORE or SD card (depending on which location you chose) and so if you are away from your PC, this will be no problem. A restore this way , rather than thru Activesync is also much quicker, so if you have a choice go this route.
you should install the ROM v1.10 update, and then install the 8/3/2005 XIP BIOS update recently posted at:
Apparently, this BIOS update is supposed to correct the region in ROM v1.10 where the hi-capacity battery read error is found, without incrementing the ROM version. It's explained in the BIOS update "Read Me" file, here:
