Got an hx210, too. Pressing briefly the on/off switch at the top right of the case turns the clunker completely off. If yours doesn't turn off, then this
question with the serial number is best posted to HP.
Before we move to the Chit Chat section, did you find any HP backup utility?
Did your device come with a cradle?
Thanks, Robert - pressing the power button (on my unit) only turns off the backlight. If I've got a program running, and press the button, then the screen goes dark. Press it again, and the screen lights up again - with my program still running.
On my Axim X51v I press and hold the power button to completely power off the device. It gives a warning to ensure that it is about to fully power down before doing so.
This is also like doing a soft reset.
Robert - sorry, I got wrapped up in my own problem and missed your question.
No, I don't have the cradle, documentation or software, as this particular unit is on loan. I'm hoping to buy one of my own very soon; is there some issue related to backups that you're trying to resolve?
No problem at all, Gary
Actually, the 210 comes without a cradle. It has a pretty much useless
mini USB port which is obstructed by the power cable connector. This
time HP has not included a backup utility. I am using Spb Backup which
works fine. Apart from running a bit too slow for a 624MHz core, the
device is a good choice. It even allows installation of embVB runtimes.
If I only could get a keyboard connected to that mini USB
If you an I wish to discuss more about this device, let's move to the
