IPAQ 3700 series

I just purchased an iPAQ 3765 on eBay. It came with the black cradle with a USB connection on the end. I plugged it into my computer with the iPAQ on it and I am assuming the power is on the top right, but when I push it, nothing happens. I am thinking it is the battery, but not sure. Thanks

Most iPaqs use a small AC Adapter This model will still need an AC Adapter, because it does not draw any current from USB to charge.

I have the IPAQ pocket pc 3765 and I was replacing battery but when I opened I saw the battery door out of its place but I do not know where is located then I can not to finish my work. Can you describe...

Welcome to Fixya

As far as i can remember, there are no battery door for ipaq. Once the device opens, gently pry out the original battery. This one should come right off (it is only stuck using some double sided tape). All you need to do is to replace the double adhesive tape if you are going to replace the battery then close the unit. Tip: Use an old credit card or something that won't damage the case to gently lift the battery out.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Garmin NUVI 660 power problem.

To charge a nuvi, use one of the following methods:
  1. Connect the nuvi to the suction cup mount and the vehicle power cable.
  2. Connect the USB cable to the nuvi and the computer. The computer will charge the nuvi as long as the computer is on. However, the unit will be in Mass Storage Mode and normal operation is not possible.
  3. Connect the AC power cable and the nuvi to a wall outlet.
Please note: All of the nuvi series will come with a suction cup mount and vehicle power cable to charge the nuvi. However, only some of the nuvi models will come with an AC power cable and/or USB cable. If they did not come with the nuvi, they would be optional cables and would be a separate purchase. Garmin only recommends using an AC power charge that is purchased from Garmin. Third party power cables may not charge the nuvi. These cables may be purchased from Garmin or Garmin's dealers.

IPAQ H5555 connection problems

Hi, This could be due to a few issues, try these soloutions in order below: 1) If you have a jacket connected to the ipaq it could be preventing the ipaq from locating correctly on the connector. Remove jacket and try insering again. 2) Check that active sync is set up to detect the device on the usb port. The cradle for the ipaq may have a serial and usb connector. Ensure that just the usb connector is attached to your laptop. Try connecting again. 3) You may need to uninstall the USB cradle if it was connected before installing active sync. Try the following steps if this was the case: a) unplug the USB cradle b) uninstall active sync c)Click start then click control pannel then click system. Then click on the hardware tab. Look for the device under USB, right click on the device and then select uninstall. d) restart the laptop e) Install active sync f) ONLY after active sync has installed you can now plug the cradle back into the usb socket. g) Now connect the ipaq, it should now detect it.

IPAQ 4150 - Sync Problems

It might be a hardware problem - if you get it both with the cradle and a sync cable, then it might be the connector at bottom of Ipaq. But I don't know for sure. If it's intermittent like this then it doesn't seem like a software problem.
