Motorola PPT8800 Device Reset Instructions


Performing a Warm Boot

A soft reset (warm boot) restarts the terminal and saves all stored records and entries.

Caution: Files that remain open during a soft reset may not be retained.

DO NOT perform a soft reset if the terminal is suspended. Press the power button to wake the terminal.

6-key keypad: Press the Enter and Func keys while holding down either the left or right scan trigger and then releasing the eys.
15-key keypad: Press Enter and Func keys while holding down either the left or right scan trigger and then releasing the keys.


Performing a Cold Boot

A hard reset (cold boot) also restarts the terminal, but erases all stored records and entries. Therefore, never perform a hard reset unless a soft reset does not solve the problem.

Note: You can restore any data previously synchronized with a computer during the next ActiveSync operation.

As the terminal initializes its Flash File system, the Symbol splash screen displays for about a minute.
