Compaq Ipaq 3870 not charging

Hi, I recently bought a used compaq ipaq 3870 off ebay and realised that iwas not charging. I left it in it's cradle all night and in the momrning checked toi see if it had charged but it did not. So I bought a replacement battery and installed it and did the same thing and it still does not charge.

What could be the problem and how do I fix it?

SOURCE: Compaq Ipaq not Charging

As I understand it, the basic cradle that comes with the Compaq Ipaq 3870 does not charge. If I were you, I'd either seek out a charging cradle or google the instructions for modifying your cradle to charge. Good luck...

Compaq iPAQ 3850 Not charging/turning on


Try this - don't give up Leave it charging, even if it takes three days. I sold one a few years ago on ebay and the buyer was insistent it wouldn't charge. Eventually it did start charging and there were no more problems.

My iPAQ won't turn on no matter what i do.


If you are saying it heats up the it sounds to me like the battery is not holding a charge anymore. Try to remove the batter and place the pocket pc in its cradle and turn it on if it works then you can be sure it's the battery. You can probably pick up a batery on Ebay real cheap. Or swing by your local BatteryPlus store and they can test the old battery and probably buy a new one in the store. I hope this helps Have a great day.

Ipaq will not Charge


Those batteries only last about 2 years. It's probably time for a replacement.

IPAQ 3700 series


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.
