Learning about HP Jornada
Hewlett-Packard has taken mobile computing to new levels of
compatibility and convenience. With HP Jornada, you will notice
many benefits not found in other, similar computers. For
example, you can:
·
Move the data you already have on an older palmtop or
handheld PC to your HP Jornada. You can transfer
information from older Windows CE devices and even some
non-Windows CE devices. (See the Transferring PIM data
from older palmtop PCs section in
Appendix B.)
·
Use e-mail without a modem. Conveniently send e-mail
automatically when you synchronize with your desktop PC.
(See the Synchronizing data section in chapter 3.)
·
Take more data with you. A desktop Microsoft Word file may
take up to 85 percent less space on your HP Jornada. (See
the Transferring files section in chapter 3.)
·
Send voice messages to friends and colleagues—even those
who do not have H/PC 2000 devices. You can save voice
Chapter 1 | Welcome | 5
messages in the compatible Wave audio format. (See the
Recording voice memos section in chapter 4.)
·
Keep Word, Access, and Excel files stored at work and at
home synchronized. Update any file in any location, and once
you synchronize, the file will be updated in every place it is
stored. (See the Synchronizing data section in chapter 3.)
·
Read online news and information while offline, or download
Web pages for viewing later. (See the Browsing the Web
section in Chapter 6.)
·
Work any time, any place, with up to 9 hours of battery life.
(See the Managing battery power section in chapter 7.)
·
Synchronize mail messages, contacts, appointments, and
tasks with your desktop or notebook PC in just a few steps.
(See the Synchronizing data section in chapter 3.)
·
Carry your HP Jornada with you. The HP Jornada weighs
only 510 g (1.1 lb.), including batteries.
·
Expand your functionality with PC Card accessories.
(See the Accessories section in chapter 7.)
HP Jornada is your mobile computing companion. Several
valuable features allow you to stay organized and in touch while
you are on the road. For instance:
·
The HP Jornada viewer application displays PIM data
(contacts, calendar, and tasks) at a glance, allowing you to
navigate to or view the data you need immediately. You
can even view notes attached to appointments.
·
The HP Jornada dialup application leads you through
the steps required to configure a dial-up connection and
to access your e-mail and the Web. When you are ready to
connect, just use the convenient dialup window on your
HP Jornada desktop.
·
The HP Jornada quick pad provides a convenient place to
jot down notes, names, telephone numbers, and other data
for short-term storage. Information can be saved in quick
pad for fast retrieval or sent to the appropriate database
for long-term storage.
·
The HP Jornada backup application can back up and
restore information to/from an optional CompactFlash

16 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
Setting up your HP Jornada
Follow the steps in this section to start using your
HP Jornada for the first time. As part of the setup process,
you will connect the ac power adapter, install the main
battery, install the backup battery, and complete the MS
Windows for H/PC 2000 Welcome Wizard. To set up your
HP Jornada, you will need to have your HP Jornada, the ac
adapter, the HP Jornada Standard Battery, the backup
battery (attached to the Quick Start Card), and the power
cable.
Follow these steps in the order they are presented. Do not
install the backup battery before connecting ac power and
installing the main battery.
Connecting the ac adapter
To avoid running out of battery power, you can operate your HP
Jornada on ac power using the supplied ac adapter. The ac
adapter accepts 100 to 240 V, enabling you to connect to ac power
anywhere in the world. When you travel, you may need adapters
to accommodate different electrical outlets, but the HP Jornada
ac adapter will safely convert ac line voltage to the dc voltage
required by your HP Jornada.
Use only the supplied ac adapter (model HP F1279B, input
specifications 100-240 V ac, 50-60 Hz, 1.5 A).
While your HP Jornada is connected to ac power, the main
battery is charged automatically. The color of the LED indicates
the status of the battery: Amber indicates that battery is
charging, and green indicates that the battery is fully charged.
Chapter 2 | Getting started | 17
The ac adapter components:
dc plug,
power cable.
ac adapter, and
To connect to ac power
1.
Connect the cable from the ac adapter to the dc jack on
the right side of your HP Jornada.
2.
Connect the power cable to the ac adapter.
3.
Plug the power cable into an ac power outlet.
After you connect the ac adapter your HP Jornada will turn on
automatically. However, you should install the main battery
and install the backup battery before using your device.
Installing the main battery
The HP Jornada Lithium-Ion Battery provides power to your HP
Jornada while it is not connected to ac power. Under normal
operating conditions, the fully charged battery should provide
power for up to 9 hours of continuous use; however, battery life
will vary depending on how you use your HP Jornada.
18 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries, unlike NiCD and NiMH
batteries, are not subject to "memory effect," allowing you to
fully recharge your batteries at any time regardless of battery
power level.
The main battery fits into the bottom of your HP Jornada, as
shown in the following diagram.
This bottom view of the HP Jornada shows how to install
the main battery.
To install the main battery
·
Place the main battery in the battery slot on the bottom of
your HP Jornada and push firmly until it snaps into place.
The main battery should be partially charged when removed from
the box. However, you should charge the main battery fully
before operating your HP Jornada on battery power. Charging
the main battery takes approximately 3.5 hours. When the
battery is fully charged, charging stops automatically; the battery
will not overcharge if left connected to ac power.
When the main battery charge is low, a low battery warning is
displayed. If you see a low battery warning message
displayed, connect ac power and charge your main battery
immediately to avoid draining your backup battery, and
possible data loss.
Chapter 2 | Getting started | 19
Do not mutilate, puncture, or dispose of batteries in fire. The
batteries can burst or explode, releasing hazardous chemicals.
Replace batteries only with the types recommended in this
User’s Guide. Discard used batteries according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.
Installing the backup battery
The backup battery protects your data when the main battery
runs out of power. The backup battery does not provide enough
power to operate your HP Jornada, but it will preserve your data
while you replace the main battery or while you connect to ac
power to recharge. The 3-V CR2032 coin-cell backup battery is
attached to the HP Jornada Quick Start Card. Follow the
procedure outlined below to install the backup battery.
To prevent loss of data, replace the backup battery as soon as a
warning message appears on your screen indicating that
backup battery power is low. (For detailed instructions on
replacing the backup battery, see the Managing battery
power section in chapter 7.)
To install the backup battery
1.
Remove the backup battery from the HP Jornada Quick
Start Card.
2.
Turn the Jornada upside-down and open the
CompactFlash door.
3.
Use the tip of the stylus to carefully open the backup
battery cover.
4.
Insert the battery printed side up in the battery
compartment.
5.
Using the stylus tip, close the backup battery cover to
secure the coin-cell battery, and then close the
CompactFlash door.

Use the stylus in much the same way you would use a mouse to
navigate and select objects on screen. You can also use your
fingertip to tap the touch screen, but the stylus provides the
greatest accuracy.
For convenience, the stylus is stored in the stylus slot on the
front of the HP Jornada. To remove the stylus, push on the stylus
to release the catch as you slide it out of the slot.
The top of the stylus pops up to make it easy to remove the
stylus. Pressing the top has no effect on the stylus function.

To navigate by using the stylus, follow these tips:
·
Where you would normally click a mouse, simply tap the
stylus on the touch screen to select an icon or activate a
button.
·
Double-tap instead of double-clicking on a mouse.
·
Hold down the
key as you tap instead of right-clicking on
a mouse.
To replace the stylus, insert the pointed end of the stylus into the
slot and push until it clicks into place.
Following the Welcome Wizard
After you install the main battery, your HP Jornada will turn on
automatically. At startup, the Hewlett-Packard welcome screen
appears. Then, after a few moments, the MS Windows for H/PC

Setting up Microsoft ActiveSync and establishing
a partnership
Microsoft ActiveSync enables you to synchronize the information
on your desktop PC with the information on your HP Jornada.
Synchronization compares the data on your device with your
desktop PC and updates both computers with the most recent
information. For example:
• Keep your Pocket Outlook data current by synchronizing your
HP Jornada with Microsoft Outlook 2000 on your desktop PC.
(Inbox synchronization with Outlook Express is not
supported.)
• Synchronize Word and Excel documents, Access and other
ODBC databases and tables, Mobile channels, and InkWriter
documents between your HP Jornada and desktop PC. Your
files are automatically converted to the correct format.
With Microsoft ActiveSync, you can:
• Back up and restore your HP Jornada data
• Add and remove programs on your HP Jornada
• Move and copy files (rather than synchronize files)
between your device and your desktop PC
Microsoft ActiveSync includes several components. The Microsoft
ActiveSync Setup Wizard detects which software components are
needed and prompts you to set up only the necessary components.
For instance:
• If you do not already have Outlook installed, the Setup Wizard
will attempt to install Outlook 2000.
• The Setup Wizard can add Inbox extensions to enable
you to transfer messages to your desktop mail client—
Exchange or Outlook.

Connecting to another PC
In some cases, you may need to connect your HP Jornada to a
desktop PC other than your partner. Or, if you have logged on to
your desktop PC under a different user name or performed a
factory default reset of your H/PC, your desktop PC will not
recognize your HP Jornada as its partner.
In these cases, when you connect your HP Jornada to the desktop
PC, the New Mobile Device Detected dialog box appears,
offering you the option to synchronize, browse, or to restore data
from an existing backup file.
If you choose Synchronize, the New Partnership Wizard will
begin, and your HP Jornada will be designated as a partner of
46 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
the desktop PC. Contacts, Calendar, and Task information and
information from any other services you choose to synchronize
will be copied from the desktop PC to your HP Jornada.
If you choose Browse, your HP Jornada will be connected as a
guest. As a guest, you can view files and folders on the
HP Jornada, transfer files and folders, and manually back up or
restore; however, you cannot synchronize data or automatically
back up and restore data.
If you choose Restore, you are given the option to restore data
from an existing backup file on the desktop PC. Restoring data in
this way will replace all existing data on the HP Jornada with the
data in the backup file on your PC.
If you have lost your HP Jornada or replaced it with another HP Jornada,
you can use the Restore function to set up a new device with the exact
same data and settings as the old one, provided you had previously
performed a full backup to the desktop PC. When you connect the new
device to your desktop PC for the first time, choose Restore rather than
Synchronize or Browse. For more information, see the Backing up and
restoring data section in chapter 5.
Browsing your HP Jornada desktop
While your HP Jornada is connected to a desktop PC, you can use
Microsoft ActiveSync to browse the contents of your HP Jornada
from your desktop. The ActiveSync window has an Explore icon
on the toolbar. When you click the Explore icon, the contents of
your HP Jornada are displayed just like any other folder on your
desktop PC. You can cut, paste, and copy files between folders on
your HP Jornada or transfer files between your HP Jornada and
your desktop PC simply by dragging the file icons between the
appropriate folders.
For more information about transferring files, including details
on converting file types between Pocket Office and Office 2000
programs, see the Transferring files section later in this

ActiveSync displays the properties for that file or program, as if
you had clicked Properties on the File menu.
The Mobile Device window on your desktop PC displays
the contents of your HP Jornada.
Synchronizing data
Microsoft ActiveSync enables you to synchronize data
between your HP Jornada and desktop PC, so the names
you add to your Contacts database and the appointments
you add to your Calendar while traveling can be
automatically updated on your desktop PC when you
return. You can also synchronize messages in your
HP Jornada Inbox with Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft
Exchange on your desktop PC. And, you can synchronize
files in the Synchronized Files folder on your HP Jornada.
with files in a Synchronized Files folder inside your My
Documents folder (Windows 95/98) or Personal folder
(Windows NT and Windows 2000) on your desktop PC.
You can set ActiveSync either to synchronize automatically
each time you connect your HP Jornada to your desktop PC
or to synchronize continuously whenever the synchronized
information changes, for as long as the computers are
48 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
connected. You can also synchronize at any moment by
choosing clicking on the Synchronize button on the
toolbar in the ActiveSync window.
Do not remove your HP Jornada from the docking cradle,
disconnect the sync cable, or turn off your HP Jornada while
synchronization is in progress.
Synchronizing selected data
You can synchronize some or all of the following items:
• Pocket Outlook data—Synchronize the Calendar, Contacts,
or Tasks information on your HP Jornada with information
stored in Outlook 2000 on your desktop PC.
• E-mail messages—Share messages between selected folders
in your HP Jornada Inbox and Microsoft Exchange or Outlook
2000 on your desktop PC. For more information, see the
Synchronizing e-mail messages section in this chapter.
• Files—Synchronize the contents of the Synchronized Files
folder (inside My Documents) on your HP Jornada with files
stored in your My Documents folder (Windows 95/98) or in
your Personal folder (Windows NT) on your desktop PC.
To specify data to synchronize
1.
On your desktop PC, open the ActiveSync window.
2.
On the Tools menu, click Options.
3.
On the Sync Options tab of the ActiveSync Options
dialog box, select the check boxes beside the services you
want to synchronize.
4.
To set specific options (for example, to indicate how
many weeks of Calendar data to synchronize or to
synchronize only active tasks), select the appropriate
service, and then click Settings.
Reducing the amount of data to synchronize, for example, by
synchronizing only 1 or 2 weeks of Calendar data, can
significantly speed up the synchronization process. If you use
Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft ActiveSync synchronizes only 2
weeks of calendar data by default.
Chapter 3 | Connecting to your desktop PC | 49
Resolving synchronization conflicts
If the same item (for example, an appointment or a task) has
been modified on both the desktop PC and on the HP Jornada,
ActiveSync will indicate that a Synchronization conflict has
occurred. When the Resolve Conflicts dialog box appears, you
can either resolve the conflict by selecting one of the items to
replace or you can ignore the conflict, leaving the data on both
computers unchanged.
You can resolve each conflict manually, at the time of
synchronization, or you can resolve conflicts automatically by
setting a default option for conflict resolution.
To set a default option for conflict resolution
1.
Open the Microsoft ActiveSync window.
2.
On the Tools menu, click Options.
3.
Click on the Rules tab of the Options dialog box.
4.
Under Conflict Resolution, select the option you prefer
to resolve conflicts.
Synchronizing e-mail messages
You can synchronize your HP Jornada Inbox with the e-mail
program (Microsoft Outlook or Exchange) on your desktop PC
partner. By synchronizing, you can take important messages with
you when you travel, or you can use your desktop PC to send
messages that you create on your HP Jornada.
50 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
When you synchronize:
• Messages are copied from the Inbox folder on your desktop
computer to the Inbox folder on your HP Jornada (by default,
only the messages received in the past 3 days are
synchronized, and no attachments are copied).
• Messages on the two computers are linked. So, for instance, if
you delete a message on your HP Jornada, it will also be
deleted on your desktop PC the next time you synchronize.
• Messages in the Outbox folder on your HP Jornada are
transferred to the Outbox on your desktop PC and then sent
from that program.
Synchronizing from a remote location
The ActiveSync program on your HP Jornada enables you
to synchronize files, e-mail messages, and Pocket Outlook
data with your desktop PC, even when you are away from
the office. You can do this by remote dial-up connection or
LAN connection to your desktop PC. You can also connect
to a computer not on a network (such as your home
computer) and synchronize using a modem.
You can quickly and easily make connections to the Internet or
a corporate network from remote locations using HP dialup.
For more information on using HP dialup see Creating
Connections in Chapter 6.
Before you can synchronize remotely, the desktop PC or network
server must be configured for Remote Access Services (Windows
NT) or Dial-Up Networking (Windows 95/98), and you must
create a connection on your HP Jornada by using either the HP
Jornada dialup application or the Remote Networking program.

HP info exchange makes it easy to send and receive essential
information to or from non-Windows PDA devices. The important
data fields of your HP Jornada PIM applications are mapped to
the data fields on the PDA device to allow capture of important
PIM information. Supported field mappings include:
• Supports sending and receiving multiple contacts,
appointments and tasks.
• A number of Pocket Outlook fields are not used (e.g. Children,
Spouse) since they are not used by non-Windows PDA devices,
or are not supported by the VCard standard.
• Multiple entries of important field types will be placed in the
Notes section.
• For standard Contact fields multi-line text is converted into a
single line with spaces for line breaks
• Supports a 'Business Card' beamed over from a Palm device
and treats it as another contact.
For more information about field mappings and data exchange,
see HP info exchange online help.
Recording and playing voice memos
You can use Microsoft Voice Recorder to quickly capture
thoughts, reminders, and ideas. Since your recordings are
captured in the compatible Wave (.wav) format, you can send
personalized voice messages to friends and colleagues as e-mail
attachments that can be opened in most Web browsers on a
desktop PC.
Voice Recorder is intended for recording personal voice memos
and is not suitable for recording presentations, music, or
lectures. Some static or electrical noise may be heard during
playback.

Chapter 6 | Accessing e-mail | 85
6 | Accessing ee-mail
With your HP Jornada Handheld PC (H/PC), you can keep in
touch with your office, home, and clients through e-mail and the
Internet. You can connect in many ways using your HP Jornada
and various accessories. This chapter will guide you through the
options best suited to your needs.
This chapter provides information that allows you to:
• Decide why and how you want to connect
• Set up your HP Jornada to access personal or e-mail and the
Internet
• Set up your HP Jornada to access corporate e-mail and your
network or PC when you are away from the office (offsite)
• Set up your HP Jornada to access corporate e-mail and
network resources when you are in the office (onsite)
• Set up additional connections with the HP Jornada dialup
application or Remote Networking
• Use your connections with Inbox and Microsoft Internet
Explorer 4.01 for H/PC
Deciding how and why you want to connect
The method you use for sending and receiving your e-mail,
browsing the Internet, and accessing other remote resources
depends on your goals and situation. Do you:
• Need access to personal (non-corporate) e-mail and the
Internet?
• Need access to corporate e-mail and network services when
you are on the road or out of the office?
• Need access to corporate e-mail and network services when
you are onsite at your company?
86 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
• Have more than one e-mail account (for example, personal and
business)?
Your answers to these questions will help you determine which
equipment you can use in combination with your HP Jornada to
keep in touch online. The following illustration depicts the
different solutions to your online needs.
Which connection options are right for you?
For explanation of some of the terms used in the descriptions
that follow or in the HP dialup application, check the glossary
at the end of this User’s Guide.
Accessing e-mail, the Internet, and corporate
intranets
Typical personal Internet connection
If you want e-mail and Internet service only (with no access to a
company network), you will need:
• An installed modem—If your HP Jornada is equipped with a
built-in modem, you are ready to go. If not, you can choose
Chapter 6 | Accessing e-mail | 87
from a variety of available PC Card modems∗, Bluetooth
devices, and LAN cards. (For more information about
compatible PC Card modems and other PC Card
communication devices, go to the HP Jornada Accessories page
on the HP Jornada Web site at www.hp.com/jornada.)
• A PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) or SLIP (Serial Line
Internet Protocol) account—An Internet service provider
(ISP) will provide you with important information, such as a
user name, password, dial-up telephone number, server
names, and so on.
• A dial-up connection set up on your HP Jornada—HP
dialup makes this step easy.
• Access to a telephone line—You can connect to an analog
telephone line if your HP Jornada has a built-in modem. If you
use a PC card modem, check the manufacturer’s instructions
for telephone line compatibility.
If you use the HP Jornada internal modem, you must use an
analog telephone line to connect your modem. Connecting to a
digital telephone line can damage your modem.
Connecting to corporate e-mail and network from
off-site
Typical corporate LAN remote (off-site) connection
If you want dial-up access to corporate e-mail and Internet
services when you are offsite, then, in addition to the items
necessary for a personal internet connection listed above, you will
need:
∗
Modem purchased separately. Some Web sites/content may not be
available.
88 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
• An account with your corporate network set for dialing
in to your network server—Your network administrator
can provide you with important information, such as a user
name, password, dial-up telephone number(s), server names,
and so on.
Connecting to corporate e-mail and network
resources on-site
Typical corporate LAN on-site network connection
If you want corporate e-mail and Internet service only (with no
access offsite), you will need:
• An installed network interface card (NIC)—that is
properly configured with the IP address of your DNS and
WINS servers (your network administrator can give you this
information)
• An account with your corporate network—including an
IP address for your HP Jornada, if it is not dynamically
assigned
• A network (LAN) connection—a network cable with the
appropriate connector for your NIC
• For detailed instructions on how to connect your HP Jornada
to a network via LAN cable, see Connecting directly to
corporate e-mail and network resources through a
network interface card (NIC) later in this chapter.
Creating Connections
Once you have decided what type of connection method you need,
you easily create and configure a Internet, intranet or network
connection by following the instructions in the following pages.
Since personal Internet and off-site corporate dialup connections
methods are quite similar they are addressed first, followed by
Chapter 6 | Accessing e-mail | 89
instructions for creating an on-site connection to a local area
network (LAN).
Personal and corporate dialup connections
Installing and configuring a modem
If you purchased an HP Jornada with a built-in 56K V.90 modem,
it is already setup for easy communication. No installation is
required.
The 56Kbps modem complies with V90 ITU 56K specifications
and has a design capability of receiving data at up to 56Kbps
from a compatible service provider, and transmitting data at
up to 31.2Kbps. Public networks currently limit maximum
download speeds to about 53Kbps. Actual speeds depend upon
many factors and are often less than the maximum possible.
Note that the UK version of HP Jornada does not support certain
dialing properties. The HP Jornada built-in modem (on models
equipped with a built-in modem) does not detect a dial tone
before dialing. By default, the Wait for dial tone before dialing
box is checked. The modem will dial even if there is no dial tone.
It also does not support the pulse dial option. The modem dials
using tone dial only. By default, tone dialing is selected.
The HP Jornada supports a variety of available PC Card
modems*. (Check www.hp.com/jornada for more information on
compatible PC card modems.) Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions included with the PC Card modem to install and
configure it for use with your HP Jornada.
Getting an account with an Internet service provider
To access the Internet and e-mail, you will need to contact an ISP
to set up a PPP account. SLIP accounts are offered by some ISPs
instead of PPP accounts. Your HP Jornada supports the use of
SLIP as well as PPP.
*Modem
purchased separately. Some Web sites/content may not be
available.
90 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
Your ISP will be able to give you all the configuration information
you need to connect your HP Jornada to the Internet and e-mail
service. Be sure to note the following:
• Your account user name.
• Your account password.
• Telephone number of your ISP modem.
• IP and DNS addresses, if necessary (most dial-up accounts are
assigned addresses dynamically each time you connect).
• Your e-mail user name or ID. (This may be the same as the
user name for your ISP account.)
• Your e-mail password. (This may be the same as the password
for your ISP account.)
• The POP3 or IMAP4 host name of your ISP.
• The SMTP host name of your ISP (if required by your ISP).
Setting up a dial-up connection to your ISP
Use HP dialup to create a dial-up connection to the Internet or to
a corporate network and to configure e-mail and Web services.
After you have established an account with an ISP, you can set
up a connection on your HP Jornada and connect to the Internet
and your e-mail whenever you want. To make this configuration
process easier, use the HP Jornada dialup application. The HP

PC inbox if your desktop PC uses either Outlook or Exchange
as its mail client. Access to e-mail on a POP3 OpenMail
account is not supported on your HP Jornada.
Chapter 6 | Accessing e-mail | 105
Inbox settings
When you connect to a mail server, the messages on your device
and mail server are synchronized: new messages or message
headers are downloaded to the HP Jornada Inbox folder,
messages in the HP Jornada Outbox folder are sent, and
messages that have been deleted from your Inbox are removed
from the server.
You can choose settings to control what will be downloaded.
• Set Inbox to download all your messages or only new message
headers to the Inbox folder.
• Downloading only message headers saves storage space and
requires less connect time.
• By default, only messages from the last 3 days are
downloaded.
• By default, only message headers and the first 100 lines of text
are downloaded, and the original messages remain on the mail
server. If you read a message header and decide that you want
the full copy, tap the Get Full Copy button on the Inbox
toolbar. The full text of the message will be retrieved the next
time you connect.

Inbox supports the use of MIME encoding for binary
attachments; however, you must be sure that both the sender’s
and the recipient’s mail servers also support MIME. If your mail
server does not support MIME encoding, file attachments that
you receive may be corrupted or even cause your HP Jornada to
freeze .
If you experience problems sending or receiving file
attachments, or if you are not sure whether your mail server
supports MIME, check with your ISP or network
administrator.
By default, Inbox will use MIME when sending attachments. To
turn off MIME encoding, tap Options on the Services menu,
select the service, tap Properties, tap Next, and then deselect
the Send using MIME format check box
For detailed descriptions of the settings related to reading and
sending e-mail attachments, see the Inbox topic in online Help.

Chapter 7 | Optimizing your HP Jornada | 125
Managing battery power
Because the data you save on your HP Jornada is stored in RAM,
it is extremely important that you maintain a continuous power
supply to your HP Jornada at all times. If your HP Jornada loses
power, all information you have entered will be lost. The MS
Windows for H/PC 2000 operating system and programs are
stored in ROM, and cannot be erased; however, any programs you
have added and custom settings in existing programs will be lost.
Data stored on a PC Card or CompactFlash Card will be saved,
even if your H/PC loses power. To protect your data, back up
regularly to a PC Card or CompactFlash Card with HP
backup..
HP Jornada uses two types of batteries. The main battery
supplies power whenever your HP Jornada is not connected to ac
power. The backup battery protects your data when the main
battery is not installed (for instance, while you exchange the
main battery).
Main battery
The main battery is the HP Jornada Standard Battery, a
rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. Use only the HP Jornada
Standard Battery (HP F1281A) or the HP Jornada Extended
Battery (HP F1840A) with your HP Jornada. These batteries are
designed only for use with the HP Jornada and should not be
used to power other devices.
Under normal circumstances, the main battery will provide up to
9 hours of continuous use without recharging. Actual battery life
will vary depending on screen brightness, what applications you
use, and operating conditions. When the main battery runs very
low, your HP Jornada will shut down, and you will be unable to
restart it until you replace the main battery, recharge the
battery, or connect to ac power.
When you replace the main battery, your new battery must be
charged before your HP Jornada will turn on. For information on
charging the main battery, refer to the Connecting the ac
adapter section in chapter 2.
126 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
Ensure that the backup battery is in good condition before you
remove the main battery. If the backup battery is low or you
are not sure, connect to ac power before you remove the main
battery.
To replace the main battery
1.
Turn off your HP Jornada and disconnect the serial sync
cable if it is attached, or remove it from the docking cradle
(optional on the HP Jornada 710).
2.
Slide the battery release tab on the bottom of the HP
Jornada and hold it in the open position while pulling the
battery pack away from the device.
3.
Insert the replacement battery pack and push firmly until it
clicks into place.
Backup battery
The coin-sized, lithium ion backup battery does not provide
enough power to operate your HP Jornada. It is intended only to
protect your data until the main battery is recharged (up to a
week if the coin-cell battery is in good condition). When a low
battery warning message is displayed, immediately charge the
main battery to avoid data loss.
Ensure that the main battery is charged before you remove the
backup battery. If the main battery is low or you are not sure,
connect to ac power before you remove the backup battery.
To replace the backup battery
1.
Turn the Jornada upside-down and open the
CompactFlash door.
2.
Pivot the backup battery cover out of the way to
completely expose the backup battery.
The backup battery is under some spring tension. As you
attempt to remove it, cover the battery with your fingers
to prevent it from flying out of the compartment.
3
With the stylus or some other small, blunt tipped
instrument, gently pry the backup battery out of the
Chapter 7 | Optimizing your HP Jornada | 127
compartment. (Be careful not to damage the stylus or the
battery compartment.)
4
Make sure that the backup battery cover is open and
insert the replacement battery printed side up into the
battery compartment.
5
Close the backup battery cover to secure the battery,
then close the CompactFlash door.
The backup battery cover is designed to be easily opened and
closed with the tip of the stylus. Just insert the tip in the small
hole to quickly pivot the cover open or closed.
Be sure to close the backup battery cover before closing
the CompactFlash door in order to avoid damaging these
components.

Do not mutilate, puncture, or dispose of batteries in fire. The
batteries can burst or explode, releasing hazardous chemicals.
Replace batteries with only the types recommended in this
User’s Guide. Discard used batteries according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.
Using the Power control panel
Use the Power control panel to check the status of your main and
backup batteries and to set options that can increase battery life.

It is important that you respond immediately when a low
battery power warning is displayed. When the main battery is
low, simply connect the HP Jornada to ac power to recharge.
(You can use your HP Jornada while the battery is charging.)
When the backup battery is low, replace it as soon as possible.
It is recommended that you back up your data and run the HP
Jornada only on ac power until you have replaced the backup
battery.
Conserving battery power

Traveling with your HP Jornada
The compact size and portability of the HP Jornada make
it the perfect traveling companion. With the
synchronization and connectivity solutions of the HP
Jornada, the power of your desktop computer is always at
your fingertips, whether you are working from across town
or from across the country.
Follow the tips in the sections below to make sure your trip
goes smoothly.
What to take with you
Be sure to pack everything you need to use your HP Jornada:
• ac adapter and power cable—If you are traveling to a
foreign country, be sure you also obtain an adapter for the
plug on your power cable. Or, you may be able to buy a power
cable for the country you are visiting in a local store or HP
distributor.
• Modem card and cable—If you do not have an HP Jornada
with internal modem, you’ll need your PC Card modem* to
connect to the Internet or dial in to your office.
• Access numbers—Check with your service provider or
network administrator to find out if they provide local dial-up
access. A local number can save plenty in long-distance
charges.
• Serial sync cable—If you will connect to a desktop PC at
your destination, pack the sync cable. You do not need to take
a docking cradle.
• Extra main battery (F1281A)—Carry a spare in case you
are stranded or unable to connect to ac power for a long period
of time.
• CompactFlash Card—Protect your data while you travel by
backing up to a CompactFlash Card.
Modem purchased separately. Some Web sites/content may not be
available.

Chapter 7 | Optimizing your HP Jornada | 145
Before you leave
Before you put your HP Jornada in your briefcase, take a few
minutes to prepare, and your trip will run smoothly.
• Identify your HP Jornada—If you will be traveling for an
extended period, update the owner properties to include your
address or contact information at your destination.
• Synchronize—Make sure your calendar, contacts, and tasks
databases are up-to-date before you leave. Synchronize all
items just before you back up and disconnect.
• Back up your data—Perform a full backup to your desktop
computer and to a PC Card or CompactFlash Card. Carry the
storage card with you—if your HP Jornada loses power during
the trip, you will be back up and running in no time. For more
info, see the Backing up section in chapter 5.
• Charge batteries—Make sure that your main battery is fully
charged and that your backup battery is good. Use the Power
control panel to check battery status, and connect to ac power
if the main battery is low or replace the backup battery if it is
low. For more information, see the Managing battery power
section in this chapter.
• Lock the audio buttons to prevent inadvertent
activation of Windows Media Player—Slide the audio lock
to the left, so the playback functions will not be activated by
accident.
• Set your desktop computer to allow dial-in—If you plan
to dial in to your desktop computer or synchronize from your
destination, make sure you prepare your desktop computer
accordingly, and that no one will turn it off while you’re away.
For details on setting up your desktop computer for remote
synchronization, see the Synchronizing from a remote
location section in chapter 3.

Maintaining your HP Jornada
When treated properly, your HP Jornada will be a reliable
desktop PC companion. Follow these tips to ensure long and
trouble-free use:
Keep the unit clean
Touching the HP Jornada screen with your hand will leave a
trace of natural oil that may make it difficult to read the screen.
To clean the screen, use a commercial glass cleaner sprayed on a
soft cloth. Avoid spraying the screen directly.
Be sure to turn off your HP Jornada before cleaning the touch
screen
148 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
Be careful not to get sand and dirt inside the unit. If you think
your HP Jornada has sand or dirt inside the unit case, contact
your authorized Hewlett-Packard dealer.
Follow general safety precautions
To keep your HP Jornada in good operating condition, follow
these guidelines:
• Only open your HP Jornada case as far as the hinges allow.
• Do not use excessive force when inserting or removing
CompactFlash Cards or PC Cards or when opening or closing
the CompactFlash Card door.
• Always keep the cable attached while synchronizing with your
partner PC until synchronization is complete.
Avoid damage
Be careful to keep your HP Jornada from being dropped, bumped,
or crushed. Dropping or placing something heavy on top of your
HP Jornada can cause damage to delicate components such as
the display. Accidental damage is not covered under the HewlettPackard express warranty.
Avoid radiated interference
Radiated interference from other electronic equipment may affect
the appearance of the display and the modem function of the HP
Jornada. Removing the HP Jornada from the source of the
interference will return the display and the modem function to
normal.
Avoid high temperatures
Your HP Jornada is designed to operate at temperatures between
0 to 40 ºC (32 to 104 ºF) and to maintain data at temperatures
between 0 to 55 ºC (32 to 131 ºF). Subjecting the device to
temperatures outside this range may damage the unit or result in
loss of data. Be especially careful not to leave your HP Jornada in
direct sunlight or in a car where temperatures can rise to
harmful levels.

Infrared transfer between MS Windows for H/PC
2000–based devices
If you are unable to transfer information between H/PC 2000
devices by infrared, try the following.
• Transfer only one file, or no more than 25 contact cards, at a
time.
Chapter 8 | Troubleshooting | 159
• Position the infrared ports so that they line up and are less
than 1 meter (3 feet) but more than 5 centimeters (2 inches)
apart.
• Make sure nothing is blocking the path between the two
infrared ports.
• Adjust the room lighting. Some types of lighting interfere with
infrared communication. Try moving to a different location or
turning off some lights.
Display
If you are having trouble viewing your data, here are some
suggestions.
Screen is blank
If your HP Jornada fails to respond when you briefly press the
On/Off button, be sure you have pressed the button firmly. If that
does not work:
• Make sure the main battery is installed properly.
• Adjust the display contrast. On some devices, the screen can
darken or lighten to the point that it appears to be turned off.
• Reset your HP Jornada. (See the Resetting section in this
chapter.)
• Recharge the main battery.
Screen is dark
Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may cause your
HP Jornada screen to temporarily darken. This is a normal
occurrence with LCD screens and is not permanent.
Resetting
Occasionally, you will need to reset your HP Jornada, for
example, after you restore data from your desktop PC or when
the operating system stops responding. There are two methods of
resetting:
160 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
• Soft reset—A soft reset (also called “warm boot”) is similar to
restarting your desktop PC. It restarts the operating system
and preserves any saved data.
• Factory default reset—A factory default reset (also called
“hard reset”) restores your HP Jornada to its original state,
erasing all information you have entered.
To ensure the safety of your information in case a factory default
reset is necessary, you should regularly back up your data to your
desktop PC (using Microsoft ActiveSync) or to a CompactFlash or
PC Card (using the HP Jornada backup application). For more
information on backing up data, see the Backing up and
restoring data section in chapter 5.
Soft reset
Perform a soft reset after restoring data from a backup file or
when your HP Jornada appears to be frozen or locked up.
To perform a soft reset
1.
Disconnect the sync cable and/or the telephone line from your
HP Jornada, or remove it from the docking cradle (optional
on the HP Jornada 710).
2.
Use the stylus to press the Reset button.
Chapter 8 | Troubleshooting | 161
Using the stylus to perform a soft reset
When you perform a soft reset you will lose unsaved data in all
open documents or programs.
Factory default reset
Perform a factory default reset only when your HP Jornada does
not respond to a soft reset. A factory default reset will erase all
data you have entered, including all files, system settings, and
programs you have installed. If you have forgotten your primary
and reminder passwords, you will also need to perform a factory
default reset.
Performing a factory default reset erases all files, programs,
and appointments you have entered. You can restore only data
that has been backed up to your desktop PC or to a PC Card or
CompactFlash Card. (For more information, see the Backing
up and Restoring data section in chapter 5.)
To perform a factory default reset
1.
Disconnect all cables, including the ac adapter from your
HP Jornada.
2.
Remove the backup battery. For more information, see the
Replacing the backup battery section in chapter 7.)
3.
Remove the main battery.
162 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
4.
Wait at least 5 minutes, then reconnect the ac adapter,
reinstall the main battery, and then reinstall the backup
battery. (For more information, see the Setting up your
HP Jornada section in chapter 2.) Your HP Jornada should
turn on automatically and display the MS Windows for H/PC
2000 Welcome Wizard. For more information about this
wizard, see the Completing the Welcome Wizard section
in chapter 2.
5.
Restore data to your HP Jornada from your most recent
backup file. For more information, see the Backing up and
Restoring data section in chapter 5.

Appendix A | Ergonomics | 167
Appendix A |
Ergonomics
This chapter provides guidance and hints to help you work in a
comfortable and ergonomically low-risk environment. If you
experience pain or discomfort while using this or any other
equipment, you should stop working and review this chapter. If
the discomfort continues, stop using the equipment and consult a
doctor as soon as possible.
Setting up and using equipment
Some people experience physical discomfort while using
computers. Sometimes this discomfort leads to Repetitive Strain
Injury (RSI), also known as cumulative trauma disorder or
repetitive motion injury. Setting up and using equipment
properly can help minimize this discomfort. Well-designed and
properly adjusted equipment may not be sufficient to eliminate
all potential problems. How you perform your computer activities
is also important.
What is RSI?
RSI is a type of injury caused by the irritation or inflammation of
soft tissues such as muscles, nerves, or tendons. In extreme cases,
this irritation can lead to permanent tissue damage. RSI has
been a documented problem for workers performing specific tasks
such as assembly line work, meatpacking, sewing, playing
musical instruments, and working with a computer. It may also
result from other activities, such as tennis.
What causes RSI?
RSI is caused by certain demanding activities that exceed the
body’s ability. Common factors associated with RSI include too
168 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
many uninterrupted repetitions of an activity or motion,
performing an activity in an awkward or unnatural posture,
maintaining static posture for prolonged periods, failing to take
frequent short breaks, and stress. Certain medical conditions,
such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes, may contribute to
RSI.
RSI symptoms
By following the guidelines on proper setup and use of equipment
and work environment, the risk of developing RSI can be
minimized. However, if you experience any discomfort, seek
professional advice immediately. Typically, the earlier a problem
is diagnosed and treated, the easier it may be to resolve.
Avoiding RSI
Recent literature suggests that there may be a relationship
between injury to soft tissues, especially in the hands and arms,
and the prolonged use of keyboards or other equipment requiring
repeated motion of the hands and forearms. Literature also
suggests that there are many other risk factors that may increase
the chances of such soft-tissue injury. You can minimize the risk
of suffering from RSI by following the guidelines detailed in this
chapter.
Setting up your working environment
You must have enough space to move around and vary your
position. To avoid eyestrain, the ceiling, walls, and floors should
have a medium level of reflectance (approximately 75 percent of
ceiling reflectance, 40 percent of wall reflectance, and 30 percent
of floor reflectance). Try to avoid excessive contrast between the
screen and its surroundings. The work environment should be as
quiet and distraction-free as possible, with background noise
below 58 dBA. Where possible, relative air humidity should be in
the range of 40 to 60 percent. Recommended room temperature is
19 to 23 ºC (66 to 73 ºF). If possible, adjust the temperature to a
comfortable level. The workplace should be well ventilated.
Pay attention to your posture; relax your shoulders and keep your
wrists straight. This is easier when your keyboard can be
positioned right under your hands while bending your elbows at
Appendix A | Ergonomics | 169
90º. Pull your chin in to look down, and try to lean back in the
chair. The backrest should support you in the hollow of your
back.
Reducing eye strain
Have your eyes checked on a regular basis and ensure your
eyeglass prescription is suitable for working on a computer
screen. Look away from the screen from time to time. Focus on
distant objects briefly. Blinking periodically helps to lubricate the
eyes.
Preventing muscle stiffness
Avoid holding your muscles tense for long periods of time. Keep
your fingers and body relaxed. Changing tasks frequently helps
prevent muscle stiffness. Alternating between typing, writing,
filing, and moving around in your work environment helps to
keep muscles loose.
Taking frequent short breaks
When you are required to work on your computer for prolonged
periods of time, take short breaks frequently. As a general rule, a
5- and 10-minute break every hour is a good idea. It is better to
take short breaks frequently than longer breaks less frequently.
Data shows that people who work for long periods of time without
a break are more prone to injury. Occasionally stretch the
muscles in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, and back. You
should stretch at least once an hour.

synchronization between your HP Jornada and desktop
PC. You can specify the type of data you want to
synchronize.
backup file A duplicate copy of your HP Jornada files and
data that is stored on your desktop PC or on a PC Card.
This file does not include your HP Jornada settings and
information stored in ROM, such as factory-installed
software. Use your backup file to restore your
HP Jornada to its previous state if your device data is
damaged or destroyed or if you have performed a factory
default reset.
cache A special high-speed storage mechanism that saves
temporary copies of Web pages and other file types as
you view them. Your computer can quickly display Web
pages you have recently visited, because Internet
Explorer can open them from cache instead of having to
load them again from the Web. Increasing the space
designated for your cache folder increases how quickly
recently visited files are displayed, but decreases the
amount of space available for other files on your
HP Jornada. You can choose to empty your cache upon
exiting Internet Explorer. This saves space on your
device.
cookies A packet of messages a Web server passes to your
Web browser. When you enter a Web site that uses
178 HP Jornada 700 Series Handheld PC
cookies, you may be asked to fill out a form with
information such as your name and interests. This
information is passed to your Internet Explorer browser
as a cookie (in the form of a text file called cookie.txt).
The next time you visit that Web site, Internet Explorer
will pass the cookie back to the Web server, and the
server will use this information to present you, for
instance, with custom Web pages filled with information
of interest to you. For example, instead of being
presented with a generic welcome page, you might
receive a welcome page with your name on it.
dial-up connection A connection between your
HP Jornada and another computer by modem. You can
have a dial-up connection with an ISP, a network, or
with a modem attached to a PC.

synchronizing and transferring data. Your HP Jornada
can have partnerships with up to two desktop
computers.
PCT (Private Communication Technology) A protocol
that maintains the security and integrity of Internet
communications by using encryption, authentication,
and message-authentication codes. The protocol is
application independent, and is used by Web browsers
and e-mail clients to send data via the Internet. PCT is
able to negotiate encryption keys as well as authenticate a
server before data is exchanged by the higher level application.
POP (Post Office Protocol) The first protocol used to
retrieve e-mail from a mail server. Most e-mail
applications (sometimes called e-mail clients) use the
POP protocol, although some may use the newer IMAP
(Internet Message Access Protocol).

referred to as "volatile" memory because all information
is erased when power is off.
RAS (Remote Access Service) account A network
account that enables your HP Jornada to access your
Windows NT network remotely.
remote connection A connection between your
HP Jornada and a remote computer or server.
reset A process that either causes your HP Jornada to
restart (soft reset) or causes all data stored in RAM to
be erased (factory default reset). For more

restore A process that returns your device to the state it
was in when last backed up. This involves copying your
backup data to your HP Jornada.
SLIP (Serial Line Internet Protocol) An older and
simpler protocol than PPP. Connecting to the Internet
via SLIP is very similar to connecting via PPP.
soft reset The process of restarting your HP Jornada and
reinitializing the MS Windows for H/PC 2000 operating
system. Performing a soft reset will erase any unsaved
data in open documents, but will preserve data that has
been saved. (Also called “warm boot.”)
stylus A pen-like utensil designed for navigating on a
touch screen.
touch screen A touch-sensitive screen that allows you to
open files, launch programs, and select text by touching
or tapping the screen with the stylus.
