Hi

For some reason I've lost external audio from my k-jam.  But let me clarify....if i call it, the external speaker works, just mp3s, keypresses, wav files etc don't work (yes I've checked the volume level). 

It works when attached via headset.

So before saying it's a hardware fault, I guess I'm up for a hardware reset. Is this correct.


So if I do a hard reset, what do i need to do to make it fairly painless.  I'm not too worried about my contacts and appointments since I'll re-sync it with exchange on the other side. But is there any way of saving my active sync profile, or do I re-create it?

Same with the MMS settings?

Anything else I should be aware of...oh and how do I do a hard reset, myself of take it to vodafone?

Also could someone explain, real quick, the difference between soft reset, turn off, hard reset and re-flashing the rom.  I.e. what to this different actions do to programs loaded, emails accounts (the set up of and the contents of).

Time for a hard reset...

On a Pocket PC, Soft Reset are just like a reboot on your PC. A Hard Reset is like an OS reinstall from the recovery disks. A ROM upgrade is like an OS install. When you power off your Pocket PC it's actually going to Sleep mode, like your PC. Some functions are still working though, such as phone and scheduler.

On a Smartphone power off is actually power off. The equivalent on Pocket PC would be to take the battery off (except that on a Smartphone it's a graceful shutdown, on Pocket PC is more like unplugging your PC off the wall).

So doing a hard reset what will I loose?

Applications installed?
UI customisations (colours etc)?
All Registry settings?  Serial numbers for apps user registry keys etc?


I mean is it like a Machine Rebuild for a PC where you re-install windows???

Can't seem to find anything that says tty/ttd in the settings/Phone area.

That is related to phone only - and you are saying non-phone sounds are the problem...

And you have not installed any program to change sounds - such as Bluetooth audio hacks, etc? Those can create problems.

I did (do) have that hack in, but it's been there for six months.

I did have SPB phone suite in with it's profiles.  And the SPB Time.  I think one of these might have done it??

But have uninstalled these, to no effect...

If I have to re-do everything, would I be better to re-flash the ROM??

Rather than just a hard reset??

Reflashing the phone is riskier and different from hard reset. It only writes some parts, and in the end requires a hard reset. Double work. A hard reset guarantees the device is formatted and running the last ROM flashed to it.
