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 keys.
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.
1. Remove the battery cover.
2. While holding down the Function key, use the stylus to gently press the reset button.
3. Release the Function key.
4. Replace the battery cover.
5. Press the Power button.
6. As the terminal initializes its Flash File system, the Symbol splash screen displays for about a minute.
