Warm/Cold Booting your Motorola MT2090

If your Motorola MT2090 stops responding to input, reset it. There are two types of resets, warm boot and cold boot. A warm boot restarts the device by closing all running programs. All data that is not saved is lost.

A cold boot also restarts the Motorola MT2090, but erases all stored records and entries from RAM. In addition it returns formats, preferences and other settings to the factory default settings.

Perform a warm boot first. This restarts the Motorola MT2090 and saves all stored records and entries. If the device still does not respond, perform a cold boot.

Performing a Warm Boot

To perform a warm boot press and hold the 2 key and the scan trigger simultaneously for 5 seconds.

During a warm boot the following three items display as text on the screen:

  • IPL
  • OS
  • PM.

Caution: Files that remain open during a warm boot may not be retained.

Performing a Cold Boot

A cold boot restarts the Motorola MT2090 and erases all user stored records and entries from RAM. Never perform a cold boot unless a warm boot does not solve the problem.

Caution: A cold boot resets the device to the default settings and removes all added applications, user preferences and all stored data. Do not cold boot without support desk approval.

To perform a cold boot press and hold the 2 key and the scan trigger simultaneously for 10 seconds. During a cold boot the following two items display as text on the screen:

  • IPL
  • OS
  • PM.
