Performing a Hard (Full) Reset on a iPAQ hx4700 / hx4705

A full reset is sometimes referred to as a hard reset. Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs and data from RAM.

Caution if you perform a full reset, your iPAQ hx4700 / hx4705 returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.

  • Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons (1).
  • Whilst holding these buttons, use the stylus to press the reset button for approximately 2 seconds (2).
  • When the screen begins to fade, release the Contacts and Mail buttons first, then remove the stylus from the reset button.
