Re: pda grrr help
It could be a lot of things but if its brand new (less than a few days) save yourself the time and potential future problems by returning to the place of purchase. Explain your experiences and they will swap it out with another new unit or at least a reputable reseller will. If you get the runaround by a clerk ask for the dept manager....
Good luck and let us know what happens.

That definitely is a battery issue. The battery is either Low Soc or it is a failed battery. Most batteries on PDA's usually fail within a year because of the immense amount of use the phone has and the majority of the time the batteries are smaller in a PDA. Take your battery to a service center if one is in your area or call your carrier and inquire about the warranty on batteries (usually 1-year).
brand new ipaq 6340 4 official batteries, none will charge past 1% the
reason for this is that the ipaq is one of the shittest pda phones on
the market, its a kids toy, if your gonna get a smartphone get
something which isnt so **** LIKE A ******* PC!!! why do we want to
browse internet on a 3inch screen??? cos we all have small *****'s and
like to feel tough with a pda im a geek but ******* its **** my
advice dont waste £300 on this, i sold my 2 on ebay for £350 each to some poor sad pathetic arse haha
This IPAQ will not support 3rd party battery manufacturers. Ensure you are using an original HP battery. You usually can use the battery one time--but when the charge runs out, so does your luck.
Most of the time you will get an on-screen warning that the battery will not be able to charge when you use a 3rd party battery. If you are using an original, you might need a new battery--they do wear out after time--too-old batteries no longer hold a charge.
unfortunatly this isnt a new issue.
It sounds as though your recharging system has went on the fritz.
If this is the case then money signs are going to soon be appearing.
replacing the charging system is impracticle and the system blocks startup so this would even cause a new battery to not function properly and also probably what ruined your previous one.
I'm sorry to say but this looks like a corrupted ROM issue. The ROM memory stores your operating system and some parts of the firmware. If it becomes corrupted (various reasons) the PDA can't boot up the operating system, resulting in the strage situation you are experiencing. You can't connect it via active sync because it can't be detected as it can't boot anymore. It is very weird that this occured because of running an oficial upgrade. This leads me to suspect that there is something phisically rong with the wi-fi module on the pda's mainboard. You will need to take it to a service center to have it examined first. They will also put a specially made bootable sd card to reinstall the operating system is a way similar with computer windows instalation by booting from a cd. Most logically the wi-fi module has a problem and when trying to acces it by rewriting it's firmware (part of ROM) this resulted in the corruption of some ROM sectors.
I'm sorry that this isn't a do-it-yourself type of fix, but it would be safest to ask a service center to examine your PDA's mainboard.
Please see the following link to locate the reset hole for your PDA.
Try a soft reset and let us know if that helped with anything.
