Power Management
2.2.3 Power Management
The netpad is powered by a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery pack, which under
optimal operating conditions will provide power for a full shift. The netpad will
warn you when the main battery charge is low.
Note:
How long your batteries last will depend upon how you use your netpad.
The netpad will use considerably more battery power when you are
recording sounds, have the brightness turned up, are using files stored on
a multimedia card, or are using Infrared.
You can take steps to help prolong your battery’s life:
•
Turn the screen brightness down.
•
Set automatic switch-off in the Power control panel.
•
Use files on the internal disk instead of an MMC, as the netpad requires
more power to write to the multimedia card.
The netpad can be powered from AC when used in the docking station (see page 31).
When the netpad is powered from the docking station, it will also charge the
battery pack.

Power Management
Important:
Take care when replacing batteries!
The netpad will warn you when its main battery is getting low, in
plenty of time to change/charge it. The backup battery is designed
to maintain the memory for several hours. However, prolonged reliance on the backup battery does reduce its life.
2.2.3.2
Charging The netpad Battery Pack
To charge the battery, attach the battery pack to the netpad and place the complete
netpad in a netpad docking station (for instructions, please refer to page 31), or place
the battery in one of the optional battery chargers. The standard (850 mAH) netpad
battery will normally be fully charged within 2 to 2.5 hours (3 hours for a 1400
mAH battery pack).
2.2.3.3
How Do I Check The Battery Power?
To check the battery power, open the Battery icon from the Control Panel. The
Battery tab gives a brief description of the state of the main battery.
2.2.3.4

2.2.3.5
Prolonging Battery Life
When your netpad is switched off, it is on “standby” and will continue to use a small
amount of battery power. If you are going to leave your netpad switched off for a
long period of time, you are advised to back up your data beforehand because the
batteries will eventually run out.
Note:
To check the battery power, open the Power icon from the Control Panel.
2.2.3.6
Internal Backup Battery
The netpad has a rechargeable backup battery designed to retain data while the main
battery pack is charging or changed over. The backup battery is trickle charged from
the main battery pack and has a limited lifespan. To maximize the life of the backup
battery, avoid excessive discharging and recharging of the backup battery by
keeping the netpad battery pack fully charged.
Important:
If both the main battery pack and the backup battery are allowed
to fully discharge, all user data held in RAM will be lost.
The backup battery is not user replaceable. If the backup battery requires replacement, the netpad must be returned to a Psion Teklogix approved service centre.
Important:
If both the batteries run out of power you will lose all your information on the internal disk.
2.2.4 Multimedia Cards
Multimedia cards (MMCs) are non-volatile memory cards, which fit into a dedicated slot in the netpad and can be used to store application software and/or data.
The MMC slot is located on the right-hand side of the netpad (see Figure 2.8 on
page 17).
2.2.4.1

2.4 Finding And Using The Stylus
The stylus is located in a holder at the right. To remove it, slide the stylus out of the
top of the netpad. To replace it, push it back in. Tap lightly on the screen using the
stylus. You can use your fingers to tap on the screen, though it is best to use the
stylus to avoid fingerprints or smudges on the screen. Do not tap the screen with any
object that has a sharp tip or you may damage the screen. Don’t use any type of ink
pen, as the ink may be impossible to remove. See “Caring For The netpad” on
page 5 for instructions on how to clean the screen.
You can usually tap on (“click on”) an item with the stylus to select or change it. For
example, you can:
20
•

How To Reset The netpad
To perform a soft reset:
gently press the stylus onto the reset button. This is located inside the card slot
door cover to the side of the MMC slot.
MMC
SIM Card
Reset Button
Figure 2.12 Reset Button Location
Press the On/Off button to restart the netpad—you will hear two beeps during bootup to indicate the reset. After a soft reset, any changes to open files will be lost. Your
other files on the internal disk will almost always be safe. It is possible (although
unlikely) that performing a soft reset after a program failure may cause the netpad to
lose the information on the internal disk; it could even prevent the reset from
working at all. If this happens, you will have to perform a “hard reset”.
Important:
A hard reset resets the netpad completely, and all information on
the internal disk will be lost.
To perform a hard reset:
1. Remove the netpad from the docking station (if applicable).
2. Remove the main battery.
3. Press and hold down the On/Off button (on the top of the unit).
4. While continuing to hold down the On/Off button, press and release the
Reset button.
5. Release the On/Off button.
6. Refit the battery into the netpad—the unit will power up and you will hear
one beep during boot-up.
Note:
22
Hard resetting the netpad will delete the partnership on the netpad. You
may delete and re-create the partnership on the PC, or create another
partnership with a new name. Refer to ActiveSync’s online help for more
details on this operation.

Connecting netpad To The PC Using ActiveSync
Important:
You must have a correctly configured access point to use 802.11
Ethernet to access your PC via ActiveSync. The PC and the
netpad must be on the same network, or networks that have access
to each other, for this to function correctly.
4.2.2 Connecting netpad To The PC Using ActiveSync
•
Connect the cable to the serial port on the netpad, and the other end to a
serial port at the back of the PC.
•
When you have installed ActiveSync on the PC, the ActiveSync icon will
appear in the PC’s system tray. For details on how to use ActiveSync, refer
to Chapter 6: “Connecting netpad To A PC” and see the ActiveSync online
help.
•
To connect to the netpad, set the Connection Settings in ActiveSync on the
PC to accept connections on the serial port (for further details refer to
“Setting Up ActiveSync” on page 37).
•
On the netpad, check PC Connections in Control Panel to verify that it is
set to allow connections, and that it is set to the correct port (usually Serial
Port 3).
•
On the netpad, click on the Start button, then Programs, then ActiveSync,
and select direct from the ActiveSync menu to initiate the connection. If a
dialogue does not appear on the netpad, the PC Connections are not set
correctly.
Backing Up To A PC
You can use ActiveSync to back up individual files, folders, or the netpad’s entire
disk to the PC. It is possible to configure ActiveSync to automatically back up the
netpad every time it synchronizes.
4.2.3 Backing Up To Multimedia Cards
You can back up individual files, individual folders or groups of files and folders to
a multimedia card fitted in the multimedia card (MMC) slot. To back up the files
and folders, copy them from the internal disk to a multimedia card using the Copy
and Paste commands in the System screen.

Psion Teklogix netpad Win CE 4.1 User Manual
Chapter 5: Files, Folders, and Programs
Creating New Files
5.5.1 Creating New Files
You can create files from within programs. As a general rule, open the program in which
you want to create the file, and select New from the File menu. A file name is suggested.
If you do not wish to use this, type a name of your own before pressing the OK button.
What names can I use for my files & folders?
You can use most characters in file and folder names including spaces, for example,
“1997 Purchase Orders and Invoices”. The only characters which cannot be used in
a file or folder name are: / < > : \ * ?
You may encounter difficulties if you use very long file names for files stored in
folders with long names, which are nested within other folders with long names, and
so on. If you do exceed the maximum allowed length, rename a folder or file to a
shorter name.
5.6 Start Menu - Documents
A quick way to find a file that has been recently used is to look in the Documents
menu on the Start menu. The Documents menu will list up to ten of the most recent
files opened.
5.7 Changing File Attributes
You can prevent a file from being accidentally changed by making it a “read-only”
file. To do this, right-click on the file and select Properties from the context menu.
Then check the Read-only box.
Files that have been created on a PC and then transferred to the netpad will also be
“read-only” files.
Note:
If you transfer a “read-only” file to another machine, it can be viewed,
and the “read-only” attribute can be removed.

Checking Memory Use
5.9 Checking Memory Use
To display the amount of memory remaining:
double-click the System icon in the Control Panel and select the Memory tab.
You can see the amount of free memory in the slider bar.
5.9.1 What Happens When Memory Is Full?
When the memory is nearly full, you will see warning dialogues when running programs to indicate that the netpad’s memory is almost full, and there is not enough
memory to perform some tasks.
Many actions need just a little free memory in order to work—displaying dialogues,
menus, etc. These can fail with a message like ‘Memory full’. The netpad will not
allow you to use all of the available memory; it will always set aside enough
memory for you to close a program or save an open file to a multimedia card.
Files saved on the internal disk and “open” programs both use memory. So, if the
memory is nearly full you should be able to free some memory by closing some programs. You can look at the taskbar to see which programs are running, and then
close the programs or files that you do not need open.
You can also delete any unwanted files, or move files to a multimedia card or your
PC to free more memory.

Additional Memory And Programs
5.9.2 Additional Memory And Programs
You can insert multimedia cards into the MMC slot on the right-hand side of the
netpad. You might use them as additional memory for storing files, or to add more
programs to the netpad. For details, please refer to “Multimedia Cards” on page 16.
If a multimedia card contains additional programs:
their icons will be available in the Storage Card folder.
To delete all the files on a multimedia card:
put it into the MMC slot. Open the Storage icon from the Control Panel. Select
the partition to format (usually Part00) and then select the Properties button.
You will see a Format button along with such buttons as Mount and Dismount.

Chapter 6: Connecting netpad To A PC
Introduction
6.1 Introduction
This chapter explains how to use ActiveSync to copy files between a PC and netpad,
and how to synchronize items such as Calender, Contacts, Inbox and Tasks files. It
assumes some basic knowledge of Windows PC operating systems.
These instructions assume that you have established a link between your PC and
netpad. See “Setting Up ActiveSync” on page 37 for details on communication
links.
•
Check that a link exists between the netpad and the PC by looking in the
PC’s System tray in the bottom right-hand corner of your desktop. There
should be a green circle in the system tray if you have successfully linked,
as shown.
If this circle is grey there is no connection.
•
Make sure that your link cable is connected.
•
On the netpad, check the task tray for the blue monitor icon. If there is no
icon, your unit is not connected.
6.2 Using ActiveSync
ActiveSync allows Windows Explorer to see files on your netpad, using the Explore
icon in the ActiveSync window. You can copy your netpad files in most of the ways
you can copy any normal PC file, including copying or moving files to your PC in
order to print them. The methods outlined in this chapter are representative of ways
that you might use Explorer, but are not the only possibilities.
Note:
You can change the look of Explorer using options in the View menu;
therefore, the appearance of your own screen may vary slightly from
those shown.

6.4.2 Copying A File Using Drag And Drop
1. Go to the folder you want to copy files from. The left-hand pane of the
Explorer window shows a list of all the disk drives on your PC, along
with netpad and network drives (if any). You can expand a branch by
clicking on the
symbol next to it, or close the branch by clicking
on the
symbol. The right-hand side of Explorer shows the contents
of the folder selected on the left.
2. Use the scroll bar on the right of the left-hand Explorer pane until you
can see the drive that contains the folder that you want to copy the file
from. Left-click and hold to drag the file or folder to copy.
3. Drag the file or folder up the folder list in the left pane, until you can
see the folder that you wish to copy the file into. If the folder you want
to copy to is not visible because its branch has not been expanded,
hover the dragged file over the folder for a second and it should expand.
This step can be repeated until the folder you want is visible.
4. Drop the file onto the folder name in the left pane, or into the right pane
if the folder is open, by releasing the left mouse button.

Copying A File Using Copy And Paste
If necessary, the file is converted into the correct PC format. The file can be used in
the same way as any other file on your PC.
6.4.3 Copying A File Using Copy And Paste
Using Windows Explorer, you can copy files between your PC and netpad in the
same way you would copy files to a floppy disk, or another PC on a network.
ActiveSync can convert files as they are copied so that you can open them on the
other computer immediately.
Within Windows, clicking the right mouse button often displays a context-sensitive
(pop-up) menu – a range of commands relevant to the object that you right-click on.
In Explorer, you can use these menus to copy files between folders, regardless of
whether they are on the PC or the netpad.
1. Open Windows Explorer.
2. Navigate to, and expand, the Mobile Device branch of the folder list.
Find the folder that contains the file you wish to copy to the PC and
click on it so that its contents are shown in the right-hand pane of the
Explorer window.
3. Right-click on the file and select Copy from the pop-up menu that
appears.
4. Navigate to the folder you want to copy this file to, and select it, so that
its contents (if any) appear in the right-hand pane of the Explorer
window. Right-click in the right-hand pane of the Explorer window,
and select Paste from the pop-up menu.

Opening netpad Files From Your PC
You can use Windows Explorer to manage files and folders stored on your netpad in
the same way as you can on your PC’s drives.
Warning:
When you delete a file on your netpad from your PC, it is permanently removed from the netpad’s drive. The file cannot be
retrieved from the Windows Recycle Bin, which only stores files
deleted from your PC’s drives.
6.4.4 Opening netpad Files From Your PC
You can open a file on your netpad using a PC application without first having to
copy it to your PC drive. You can edit the file on your PC and then save it back to
your netpad when you have finished. To open a file from Windows Explorer,
double-click on the file icon or press Enter.
When you save the file within the PC application, ActiveSync saves the edited file
back to your netpad.
6.5 Backing Up Your netpad With ActiveSync
6.5.1 Performing Your First Backup
You can use ActiveSync to back up all the files stored on your netpad to your PC.
Keeping backups of your netpad files on your PC means that you have a separate
copy of all your work that can be restored to your netpad. For example, you can
restore backed up files to your netpad if you accidentally delete a file, wish to revert
back to an older version of a file, or need to restore files if you forget to change
the batteries.
To make a backup:
1. Open ActiveSync on the PC by double-clicking on the green circle in
the task tray.
2. Click on the Tools menu, then on Backup/Restore.
3. Click Back Up Now to start backing up the files on your netpad.
ActiveSync displays a progress window showing how long the backup
will take and will inform you when it has completed.

Performing Regular Backups
6.5.2 Performing Regular Backups
You can set ActiveSync to automatically backup when the device connects, so you
do not need to back up your netpad manually.
6.6 Synchronizing Your netpad
6.6.1 What Is Synchronization?
You can use synchronization to manage information that you wish to keep up to
date on both your PC and netpad, such as appointments or address book entries.
When you synchronize, ActiveSync checks the information in your PC program
with the matching program on your netpad, and then updates the files on both your
PC and netpad to include the new information. To synchronize, you must set up a
partnership between the netpad and the PC.
Some examples of synchronization are:
•
You add a new appointment in your netpad schedule; the date, time and
notes for the entry will be copied to your PC scheduler and notify you at the
appropriate time.
•
You change a phone number in your PC address book; it will be amended
in your netpad’s address book.
•
You enter overlapping appointments in your PC and netpad schedules;
ActiveSync will warn you of the conflict.
6.6.2 Synchronizing Your netpad
This section details the set-up and day-to-day use of ActiveSync to synchronize
files, e-mail, schedules, and so on, on the PC. The instructions assume some familiarity with the use of Windows, and that you are using ActiveSync (supplied with
netpad). You must also have a local installation of the e-mail and schedule programs
to synchronize.
Partnerships are only necessary for synchronization, not to simply copy files from
the PC to the netpad. Before creating your partnership, note which types of information you want to synchronize. You can synchronize the Calendar, Channels, Contacts, Files, Inbox, Pocket Access and Tasks. ActiveSync will tell you which
desktop applications each of these relates to.

Internet And E-Mail Settings
7.4 Internet And E-Mail Settings
7.4.1 Overview
Before you can use Internet Explorer (the Internet browser) and Inbox (the e-mail
application) on your netpad, you need to set up certain details. This section covers
some general questions that people ask about using e-mail and the Internet, and
provides a glossary of terms. The later sections list the information you will need
to know before you start setting up the netpad, and then provide step-by-step
instructions.
7.4.1.1
Using The Internet On netpad
You can use your netpad to:
•
Access the Internet and view web pages using the Internet Explorer program.
•
View locally stored web pages and graphics files.
•
Download files, e.g. additional programs for your netpad.
7.4.1.2
Using E-mail On netpad
You can use your netpad to send and receive e-mail messages using either one, or
both, of the following methods:
Connecting By Telephone Line To A Remote Mailbox
This is for making a ‘live’ connection to your e-mail mailbox via a telephone line
(without needing a PC). For example, you could access your personal mailbox by
dialing your Internet Service Provider (ISP), or access your work mailbox by dialling your company's service provider or office mailbox.
What to do next…
If you want to access your work mailbox, you will first need to contact your
network administrator to find out whether you can make a ‘remote’ (dial-up) connection to your mailbox. See “Types Of E-mail Account” on page 76 to continue.
Psion Teklogix netpad Win CE 4.1 User Manual
75
Chapter 7: Configuring Communications
Overview
Connecting A PC To Access Your Mailbox
This is for connecting directly to a PC that can access your mailbox. Using
ActiveSync's ‘Inbox Synchronization’, you can write e-mails on your netpad,
and then connect to your PC to send and receive messages.
How do I do this?
To access your mailbox via a PC, you will first need to install ActiveSync on the
PC and set up a partnership to use ‘Inbox Synchronization’.
7.4.1.3
Types Of E-mail Account
There are a number of different types of e-mail account. See the list below to find
out which types of account you can connect to using the e-mail program on
your netpad.
Personal Dial-up Account
This is most likely a dial-up e-mail account which you’ve signed-up for with an
Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Which ISPs can I use?
You can use most ISPs which use ‘Internet standard’ methods for connecting to
your e-mail account. However, some ISPs (such as America Online) use proprietary methods for connecting, and cannot be accessed by your netpad (i.e. you
must use a PC). Move on to ‘Setting up your netpad’ to continue.
Remote (e.g. Office) E-mail Account
This is most likely an e-mail account at your workplace, e.g. using Microsoft
Exchange or Lotus Notes.
How do I find out if I can use my account?
You will need to find out from your network administrator whether you can
access your e-mail mailbox using this type of account. If you can, move on to
“Setting Up Your netpad” on page 78 to continue.
76
Psion Teklogix netpad Win CE 4.1 User Manual
Chapter 7: Configuring Communications
Overview
Web-based E-mail Account
This is an e-mail account that you must connect to using a web browser, e.g.
HotMail or Yahoo! Mail.
Note:
You can’t connect to this type of account using the e-mail program.
To use web-based e-mail, you must first set up your netpad for Internet
access. You will need to use the Internet Explorer program to access your email provider’s web site.
7.4.1.4
If You Don’t Have An Internet/E-mail Account
You will require an e-mail account before you can access the Internet, and send and
receive e-mail messages on your netpad.
•
To get a personal e-mail account, you must ‘sign-up’ with an Internet
Service Provider (ISP). ISPs usually provide an e-mail account as part of an
Internet access package.
•
Most ISPs will provide software (e.g. a CD-ROM) which will help you set
up Internet access and the e-mail account on a PC.
Important:
Some ISPs require that you connect to them using a PC in order
to sign-up. If you can’t do this, contact the ISP to find out if you
can sign-up without using a PC. If you have Internet access, see
www.psion.com/mobile for more details.

Setting Up Your netpad
2. A modem.
You will need a modem to connect your netpad to the telephone network. You can use the following types of modem with your netpad:
• Standard external PC modems.
• Internal radio modem (GSM variant), see “GSM/GPRS Modem Configuration” on page 68 for details.
• Infrared-enabled mobile phones with built-in modems.
3. A telephone connection.
If you are using a standard external modem, you will need to connect
your modem to a telephone socket. If you are using a mobile phone,
your network operator will need to enable your SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card so that you can make fax and data calls on your
phone. If your phone has been enabled for fax and data calls, you
should have two extra phone numbers. Contact your network operator
if you are unsure whether your phone's SIM card is ‘data-enabled’.
7.4.2.2
Getting Help
If you are having connection problems, you can find information about connecting
using specific service providers, modems or mobile phones on our web site at
www.psion.com/mobile.
7.4.2.3
What Information Do I Need?
Before you can set up your netpad, you will need to find out some information about
your modem and your Internet e-mail account by:
•
Checking any documentation your ISP supplied about your Internet
account, or contacting your network administrator at work.
•
Checking your ISP’s web site for technical support.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting the netpad
General Troubleshooting Tips
9.1 General Troubleshooting Tips
You should read this chapter if you have any questions or experience problems
using your netpad.
9.1.1 Times Aren’t Correct In The Time Program
This is likely to be because of “daylight saving” or “summer time” settings (where
clocks are put forward for the summer months).
The dates that clocks are set to change vary from country to country, and sometimes
even within a country; some countries do not use summer times at all. Therefore, the
netpad clock will not change automatically on the date that the clocks change. You
will need to make sure that each zone is set to use its “summer time” setting when
the clocks change in those countries.
9.1.2 If You Forget Your Password
If you forget the machine password, you will not be able to use the netpad until
you perform a “hard reset”. All the files on the internal disk will be lost and
cannot be retrieved.
9.1.3 The netpad Doesn’t Turn On/Off
If the netpad doesn’t seem to turn on:
•
Check the screen contrast to make sure it isn’t set too low.
•
Recharge the main battery. If you continue to use the netpad when the main
battery is low, it will eventually not have enough power and the netpad will
switch off. You will not be able to switch it on again until you place the
netpad in the docking station to recharge the battery or replace the main
battery with a charged one.
If the netpad doesn't seem to turn off:
•
Check the automatic switch off time using the Power icon from the
Control Panel.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting the netpad
How To Reset The netpad
9.1.4 How To Reset The netpad
If you find that you cannot exit a program normally, right-click on the taskbar and
select Task Manager from the context menu. Select the task that appears to be unresponsive and click on the End Task button.
If this does not work, or if your netpad appears to have “locked up”, you can always
perform a “soft reset”. This should restart your netpad while preserving most of
your information.
It is worth trying a soft reset if the keys on the netpad do not appear to respond, or if
the netpad appears to switch on and you are sure that the batteries are good, but the
screen is otherwise blank.
To perform a soft reset:
gently press the stylus onto the reset switch. This is located inside the Card Slot
door cover to the side of the MMC slot.
Card Slot Door Latch
MMC Card
Reset
Button
After a soft reset, any changes to open files will be lost. Your other files on the internal disk will almost always be safe.
It is possible (although unlikely) that a program failure causes the reset to lose the
information on the Internal disk; it could even prevent the reset from working at all.
If this happens, you will have to perform a “hard reset”.
To perform a hard reset:
1. Remove the netpad from the docking station.
2. Remove the main battery.
3. Press and hold down the On/Off button (on the top of the unit).

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting the netpad
Can’t Place The netpad In The Docking Station
4. While continuing to hold down the On/Off button, press and release the
Reset button.
5. Release the On/Off button.
Important:
A hard reset resets the netpad completely, and all information on
the Internal disk will be lost.
9.1.5 Can’t Place The netpad In The Docking Station
If you are having difficulty putting the netpad in the docking station, you may be
attempting to insert it upside down. Push the netpad into the docking station until
you hear a click.
9.2 ActiveSync Connection Problems
Using Windows95/98/NT 4.0
This section is a guide to troubleshooting connection problems between a netpad
and a PC running Windows 95/98/NT 4.0 and ActiveSync. It also presumes you
have already gone through the online help documents that come with ActiveSync,
and still have no success in linking. A basic knowledge of using the netpad and
Windows 95/98/NT 4.0 is necessary. For information about using Windows
95/98/NT 4.0, check your Windows manual or contact the Windows 95/98/NT 4.0
helpline.

Tips When Installing ActiveSync
9.2.1 Tips When Installing ActiveSync
Close any other programs that are running. This includes virus checkers, uninstallers, floating toolbars etc.
If you need to re-install ActiveSync, make sure you uninstall the previous version first:
1. Click on the Start button and select Settings, then Control Panel.
2. Double click the Add/Remove Programs icon. Select ActiveSync in
the list and then click the Add/Remove button.
Important:
You must re-start your PC before re-installing ActiveSync or you
will experience problems.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting the netpad
Basic Troubleshooting For Your netpad
9.2.2 Basic Troubleshooting For Your netpad
1. Close down all applications. To see all active programs, look on the
taskbar. Each program running will have a button. The programs can be
activated then closed normally, or if necessary, you can right-click on
the program’s taskbar button and choose Close from the context menu.
2. Check that the PC Connection setting in the Control Panel is enabled
and set to the correct serial port. Note that a partnership must already
exist for the Infrared port to use ActiveSync correctly.
3. Perform a soft reset on the netpad.
9.2.3 Basic Troubleshooting For Your PC
1. Close down any other open applications in Windows.
2. If you have a laptop:
• Make sure you have no PC Cards (PCMCIA cards) plugged in.
• Most laptops have power-saving features that disable the COM ports.
Turn these power saving options OFF.
• If your PC has an Infrared port, make sure it is disabled and your
serial/COM ports are enabled. Psion Teklogix can support you with any
of these issues. Check the laptop’s manual or contact the manufacturers
support department to get these issues rectified.
3. The ActiveSync Connection server icon is in the bottom right-hand
corner of your PC Screen. When you are not connected, it is a grey
circle. When you have made a successful connection, it becomes a
green circle.
• Right-click the ActiveSync icon and
choose Connection Settings from the
context menu.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting the netpad
Device Conflicts
• Make sure that the correct connection type is checked.
• It is possible for ActiveSync to conflict with a modem or mouse. Symptoms are the mouse pointer intermittently locking up or software that
uses the modem intermittently freezing. Check your PC’s device
manager for conflicts.
4. If you are using Windows NT 4.0, check that you have at least
Service Pack 3 installed. If necessary, install it or contact your Systems
Administrator.
9.2.4 Device Conflicts
To check for device conflicts:
1. Click on the Start button, select Settings and then Control Panel.
2. Double-click on the System icon.
3. On the Device manager page of the System properties dialogue, check
for icons marked with a
symbol.
98

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting the netpad
Device Conflicts
Note:
This symbol means that the marked device is conflicting with another
device. If a modem or COM port is conflicting, this could be a cause of
ActiveSync not connecting. Contact the person or organization that supports your PC to resolve the conflict.
4. There is no Device Manager in Windows NT 4.0. The closest is a list of
IRQs, I/O ports and DMA channels. These are accessed by the Start
button, selecting Programs, then Administrative Tools (Common),
then Windows NT Diagnostics. Select the Resources page in the
Windows NT Diagnostics dialogue box. If you do not have this option
or you are in any doubt about it, you should contact your Systems
Administrator.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting the netpad
Fax/Modem On COM 1/2/3/4
9.2.5 Fax/Modem On COM 1/2/3/4
If you have a Fax/Modem using COM Port 3 or 4, and ActiveSync on COM 1 or 2
(or vice versa), you may have trouble when trying to connect with the netpad.
Because of the way a PC handles COM ports, COM1 and COM3 are ‘linked’, as are
COM2 and COM4. Specifically, they share the same Interrupt Request (IRQ).
In practice, this means that if you have a modem on COM3, it may conflict with the
netpad on COM1 (and the same applies for COM4 and COM2). The solution is to
try using ActiveSync on a different port or to assign a different IRQ.
You can check the COM port properties by following the steps above to get to the
Device Manager page and double-clicking on the COM port.
Again, if you are in any doubt about whether you are able to do this safely, you
should contact the person or organization that supports your PC.

Temp Folder
If you have an external modem and have unplugged it to use the Psion Teklogix
serial cable on the same port, you will not get a connection. Windows 95/98/NT 4.0
reserves this port for use with the modem and so you will have to use another port.
9.2.6 Temp Folder
The ActiveSync connection can be affected if you have not specified, or have incorrectly specified, your Temp folder. To specify this:
1. Click Start and
select Run. Type
sysedit in the dialogue and click OK.
A screen with multiple windows is displayed.

Temp Folder
2. Click on the AUTOEXEC.BAT title bar.
3. Look in this window to see if it has a line that starts SET TEMP=. If
this line exists, check that the folder that it points to exists, and create
the folder if not.
If this line doesn’t exist, place the cursor on a new line and type SET
TEMP=C:\TEMP.
Close the window and choose Yes when asked if you want to save the
changes.
4. Create a folder on the root of your C drive and call it Temp.
5. Finally, restart your PC.

Troubleshooting ActiveSync Synchronization Problems
9.3 Troubleshooting ActiveSync
Synchronization Problems
This section discusses various problems that may be encountered when synchronizing using a partnership.
Some familiarity with these applications, Windows 95/98/NT 4.0, and your netpad
is assumed. You will also need a full installation of your PC PIM.
Note:
This section should be used in conjunction with the manual to setting up a
synchronization for each application.
The majority of synchronization problems are caused by setting up a synchronization incorrectly. Please make sure you have read the appropriate sections in
Chapter 6: “Connecting netpad To A PC” first. These explain the correct way to set
up a synchronization.
9.3.1 Basic Troubleshooting For Synchronization Problems
Some common causes of sychronization errors include incorrect settings, and
e-mail issues.
Incorrect settings can result from the wrong program being associated with a particular synchronization event. If you have Outlook installed on your PC, ActiveSync
will most likely automatically assume that Tasks, E-mails, etc., should all be associated with Outlook. Verify that the programs you are using are associated with the
type of synchronization you require.
E-mail issues usually stem from conflicts in address books, and conflicting settings
in ActiveSync itself. To verify that e-mails get synchronized to and from the netpad
correctly, verify that the e-mail addresses in the netpad outbox are valid. ActiveSync
will provide some error text on synchronization to help you detect such problems.
Conflicting settings in ActiveSync can result in e-mails being transferred as headers
only, or without attachments. Check the settings for the ActiveSync service in Inbox
on the netpad to resolve this issue.

Other Things To Try
9.3.2 Other Things To Try
1. Delete and recreate your partnership in ActiveSync.
When ActiveSync connects to a machine using a partnership for the
first time, it uses the name “WindowsCE”. Every subsequent partnership created after the first asks you to enter a name for that machine.
Partnerships register details about your netpad on your PC. Sometimes
this information can become corrupt.
• Open ActiveSync by double-clicking on the ActiveSync icon in the
PC’s system tray. This will bring up the ActiveSync dialogue.
• Click on the File menu and select Delete Partnership from the menu.
The Delete Partnership menu item will not be available if there are no
partnerships.
If you have deleted all the partnerships, the next time you connect your
netpad, the partnership will be created as “WindowsCE”.
2. Make a new backup and recreate any synchronizations.
