Unitech PA600 Device Reset Instructions

There are three kinds of reset that you can perform on your device when the device’s operating system stops responding or the system becomes corrupted. Depending on the situation, a warm boot, clean boot, or cold boot can be performed.

You may have to perform a reset if the device freezes (i.e., device no longer responds to the buttons or tapping on the screen).

Performing a Warm Boot

A soft reset allows your device to get a fresh start, similar to rebooting a computer. This will restart your device and adjust memory allocation. All records and entries are retained after a soft reset. Unsaved data in open programs may in some cases be lost.

Step 1

Remove the stylus from its holder.

Step 2

Lightly press the tip of the stylus to the reset button located on the rear of the PA600.

Performing a Cold Boot

A cold boot cuts off power of your device erasing all records and entries, deleting all programs you have added, and restoring the device to default factory settings. Never perform a cold boot unless a warm boot does not correct your problem. When you perform your next ActiveSync operation, you can restore any data that you previously synchronized to your computer or you can restore data that you backed up to a storage card.

Step 1

Press and hold the Func key + Backspace key.

Step 2

While holding the Func key and Backspace key insert the tip of the stylus into the reset hole on the back of the PA600. Press and hold the reset button until you see Unitech splash logo screen. Wait 5 seconds and release the Func key and Backspace key.

Note The system is returned to the default settings. All registry settings and all files (include the hidden files) are returned to their original factory defaults.

Performing a Warm Boot

This will restart your device and adjust memory allocation. All records and entries are retained after a warm boot. Unsaved data in open programs may in some cases be lost.

Step 1

Remove the stylus from its holder.

Step 2

Use the stylus to press the RESET button located at the opening of the stylus compartment.

Performing a Cold Boot

This will erase all records and entries, delete all programs you have added, and restore the device default factory settings. Never perform a cold boot unless a warm or clean boot does not correct your problem. When you perform a cold boot, the date and time settings are not retained. Formats, preferences, and other settings are restored to their default factory settings.

Step 1
