    I have a hp555 with the same exact issue. New battery but will not turn on. I have charged the unit for over 24 hours. When I hit the reset button it will go through the intro screen for a couple second then just shut off. No matter how many re-boots the unit will only power on for about 3 seconds.

Was the battery a exact replacement to the one you removed?

also do you have the power adaptor for it put the old battery back in and see if it will run off the adaptor with the old battery plugged in and then you know the issue is with the new battery and not the unit itself.

Simple Solution:

Perform a hard reset and then attempt to login repeatedly (10x).

Replacement Battery


PDA 2005 (as old as)
bad power supply ( weak)
bad battery charger chip inside.
this device has no value, really, why spend hard labor on such old tech? if compelled, buy 2 or 3 other dead 4360s ones, used off fleabay
to get one good one.
There is no PC made that will not fail.
consider this, if you had 2005 Toyoto car and the alternator went
bad , as all do about NOW. do you Boycott, Toyota.
nothing made by man lasts.
even earth is doomed, but not in 11 years.

IPAQ 6365 hard reset


I Also Had The Same Problem. Now I Fixed It. Go To Power In Settings. Click On The Advanced Tab. Uncheck The Box Which Says "Turn Off The Device If Not Used For" Box. This Will Solve The Problem. It Solved Mine. Thereafter Once, My Backlight Did Not Switch On. Fix This By Going Into Backlight Settings And Uncheck The Box Which Says "Turn Off The Backlight If Not Used For" Box. This Will Solve It. Then Soft Reset The Device To Change Settings. To Soft Reset, Find A Small Hole In The Left Hand Side Of The Device. Put Your Stylus In And PRESS ONLY ONCE. If You Keep It Pressed, Your Device Will Hard Reset. Don't Do That. Just Press ONCE.

HP Ipaq 4155 not recognizing battery


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Cannot power on...


How to correct iPAQ 5450, 5455, 5550, 5555 battery charging problems / dead unit syndrome.

The iPAQ 54xx or 55xx will not power on if the batteries charge is lower than 3.2 Volts, if your battery charge falls below the 3.2 volts level your unit will not turn on, you need to plug the iPAQ into a cradle or AC charge adaptor. Note the charging light on the iPAQ will not flash at all (normally flashes orange) until the battery charge has reached a minimum charge level of 3.2 volts. You then need to perform a normal reset, then the unit should switch on normally.

HP Procedure is as follows:

To charge and reset the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400:

i) Connect the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 to an A/C power supply.
ii) Charge the battery to the minimum level of 3.2 Volts. This will take 5 to 30 minutes depending on the current charge level.
iii) Perform a normal reset.
iv) Power on the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400

It is recommended that you keep the iPAQ Pocket PC connected to the Universal Cradle or Cable when it is not in use.

My H5450 won't charge!


When you charge up your iPaq, do you use the cradle, or do you use the AC-adapter with the little iPaq power converter that came with the iPaq? Try both, and see if it charges up your pda. Try and borrow an iPaq car-charger and see if it charges up that way (the ones that do not need the iPaq power converter). If you are lucky enough to power up the iPaq even for 2 minutes, enable USB fast charging in the SETTING -> BATTERY. Your USB-data-cable or cradle will then be able to charge it up that way...
