Reset the iPAQ H3000 and Clear Memory

Resetting the iPAQ

If your iPAQ H3000 responds slowly, stops responding as expected, or “freezes,” try resetting it. A reset causes the iPAQ H3000 to restart and re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in open windows may be lost. Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button for about two seconds.

NOTE: Do not turn off your iPAQ as it must remain on in order to reset.

Clearing memory

If you want to clear all data from your iPAQ H3000 and return it to the factory settings, you should clear the memory.

Clearing memory deletes all data and restores the iPAQ H3000 to its default settings. Programs installed at the factory remain, while data you have created and programs you have installed are erased.

1. Using the stylus, slide open the On/Off door on the base of the iPAQ H3000.
