Connection time-out issue with Motorola MC75 Handheld

I am using the Motorola MC75 handheld with the Rogers network. The issue is, when my handheld is idle the data connection is lost and I have to connect manually again - which is very annoying.

When I connect to my data connection using 'Internet Sharing', I connect properly. I use a software program that transmits data to a server backend and it works in real-time when I send the info. This works perfectly when I first connect and all consecutive transmissions I send. However if it is idle for roughly 5 minutes the data connection seems to timeout and I have to manually connect using 'Internet Sharing' again. Is there a way to stop this time out and have the data connection constant? It gets quite annoying having to go and connect again.

PS: connected or not, I cannot browse the internet using Internet Explorer either. (ive tested it out on the Telus network too, it isn't a network problem)

Have you tried sending print jobs thru the parallel port only? I think it has to deal with your jetdirect box. You can try reseting that as well.

SOURCE: Zebra LP2824 Not Printing

I had the same problem and could not fix it but called Zebra headquarters and they gave me this solution and it works! It sounds crazy but it works. Turn off the printer on the switch on the side. press and hold the button on the front of the machine while you turn it on. The light will turn red then release the button the light around the button will then turn a solid greed then blink green. While it is blinking green press and hold the button again until it the light turns orange and then release the button. This apparently puts your printer into line mode or something but anyway it works!

How to factory default Mc75 device

Resetting the MC75

There are two reset functions, warm boot and cold boot. A warm boot restarts the MC75 by closing all running

programs. A cold boot also restarts the MC75, and also resets the clock. Data saved in flash memory or a memory

card is not lost.

If the MC75 is not functioning properly, perform a warm boot first. If the MC75 still does not respond, perform a cold


Performing a Warm Boot

Hold down the Power button for approximately five seconds. As soon as the MC75 starts to boot release the

Power button.

Performing a Cold Boot
To perform a cold boot simultaneously press the Power button and the 1 and 9 keys.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

IPAQ 1950 suddenly will not connect to PC to allow sync

Same problem, on four computers with two iPAQ 1950's. I installed ActiveSync 4.5, and all works fine now. This link will get you to AS 4.5:

This SHOULD work for all PDAs, but I have only used it for the 1950.
