Hi everyone, few weeks ago I noticed there were still two horizontal battery status in the Main Power Settings Menu of my xda II mini...one for the main battery (which ranges from 100%-fully charged to 5%-almost drained) and one for the backup battery(which is usually 100%-assuming main battery does not completely drain).
today, i just noticed that my internal backup battery status bar was not shown and instead, the word NONE appeared. Does this mean that the internal battery was drained or not detected?is there anyway i could replace this? or it could only mean I have to replace my old battery? please help..thanks ahead

It looks battery completly drained and dead (as It took so much time), the best way first to check "Circuit" status in Battery through Voltmeter (poles)..or another way go to any cell phone shop and give a trial with another batterty to check status of your unit.
The backup battery exists to protect your data when the main battery dies. It only has enough power to keep the internal memory 'alive' so you dont lose your files, settings etc.
When the backup battery dies it should be replaced as soon as possible, as the main battery will power the internal memory only while it has charge. Should the main battery die it would be like performing a hard reset.
I noticed that the firmware that you have is not the latest, the last provided was 1.0623.049 which was released a few years ago.
I would install this, in addition to the other patches from the Toshiba web site. Hopefully this will overwrite any software quirks for you.
Hi...I had the same problem with mine. I sent it in for "repairs" and it came back doing the same thing. Eventually I went into the system and found that there is an option to switch the device off after 1 minute without it being used.
Go into settings, you will find it there.
If your craddle has DC power input that charges the PDA while in craddle, try setting the power configuration so that when the PDA is on external power, there is no blank screen timeout, and no automatic shutdown (it's in the Settings menu). This way, it won't power down while in craddle, and you won't get this problem you're having.
Blinking amber light means the battery is not fully recharged. Once it is charged, press the power button. If the the device still does not turn on take out the main battery and the backup battery. Put the main battery in first, then the backup battery and put the battery switch in the lock position. Press the power button and you should see initializing memory..., then starting..., then it will ask you to set up the device.
