    That's what I did. when I'm in the last step, I hit the reset button and the screen with the HP logo and the white background appears and after 1 second it turns off. I have tried repeating the same process once and again.

    I'm using a wall adaptor but when I connect it it's not lighting or showing any change. My Ipaq is a 2200.

Hello, it isn't that simple as a broken charger. Try the following thing. Connect battery to the PDA, check that the battery LID is connected FIRMLY to the body (there is a contact there that woun't allow the PDA to start if the lid isn't connected properly, you may want to check it too, look carefully for a small black thing and check that it can be pressed). Then connect the pda for half hour to the charger, even if no light or amber led is flashing. Then make a master reset as showed here and connect the PDA to a usb sync cable with your computer. Press simultaneous the soft reset and the power button, then press only the soft reset button. The PDA should start. If not, there is a problem with a DC converter component on the mainboard or the connector I was talking about before. Even if the charger is broken, your PDA should power on from USB cable. Good luck, feel free to ask further questions and always remember to rate replies received from this site :)

Hi LaSuperChica, Have you tried a full (hard) reset? -Press and hold Application Buttons 1 (Calendar) and 4 (iTask) on the front of the unit and, at the same time, use the stylus to press the Reset button on the back of the HP iPAQ Pocket PC. -Hold all buttons until the displayed image begins to fade (approximately four seconds). -Release the Application buttons and stylus. Verify the full reset occurred by pressing the power button, it the full rest was done correctly the unit should not turn on. -Reactivate the batter by pressing the reset button with stylus. Let us know if this works and please don't forget to rate this post.

    I?m thinking that your battery isn?t charging, either it has a problem or your charger isn?t working right which is pretty much what you thought from the beginning. What are you using to charge it a sync cable (or cradle) connected to your computer USB or a wall socket adaptor?

    I?ve had issues with my cradle not powering my iPAQ from time to time. Usually its because the iPAQ isn?t connected just right. The thing to watch is the charging LED should light. If its lighting but you still don?t have any change then the battery itself might be defective.

    I?m not sure about your specific model but most others will run if plugged into a properly functioning cradle or a wall adaptor you should be able to power up the iPAQ. Even with a low charge battery.

  • tomj23 Mar 01, 2007

    The second LED from the left of your iPAQ on the top is the charge indicator. When charging it should be flashing amber, solid amber when its fully charged. If its not doing any one of those your charger is shot or the connection is faulty. Inspect the charger iPAQ plug and the iPAQ socket for damage or contamination. If you don?t turn up anything there then it may be as simple as getting a new charger.

  • tomj23 Mar 01, 2007

    Again your AC power converter is looking more like the primary candidate. Unfortunately I think the only way you are going to resolve this is to either take your iPAQ and charger to the local tech shop (that will work on an iPAQ) where they can quickly test it OR spend $25 on a new charger and actually test it. Even if they aren?t setup to test the iPAQ they might be able to test the charger itself to see if its still putting out the right voltage and amperage. Depending on the shop I wouldn?t imaging they would charge more than $35 to identify the problem. As far as the USB chargers go I would recommend you stay away from them unless you are plugging it directly into a USB port on your PC.

Hi shianto,

Because of e-ink screen technology the reader will display last page even if the unit is not charges it may display "full". Try this:

1. Connect the reader to the PC and check if a redlight comes up
2. If there is no light, hit the reset at the bottom for 3 seconds, the light should come on now.
3. Leave the unit charging for about 15-30 minutes
4. Unplug the unit and see if its operational now, if not you can try the reset again and the slide the power switch

  2. When the power indicator on the top of the HP iPAQ Pocket PC turns solid amber, the unit is fully charged and can be disconnected from the AC adapter (approximate time to fully charge a unit is four hours).
NOTE: The amber charge light blinks while the battery is recharging and turns solid (nonblinking) when the battery is fully charged.In the event of a low backup battery warning, charge the unit immediately before removing the main battery to avoid data loss. To view the amount of charge left in the backup battery, tap Start, Settings, the System tab, and Power.
Charging with the universal desktop cradle and AC adapter Use the universal desktop cradle to charge the HP iPAQ Pocket PC, or synchronize the HP iPAQ Pocket PC with a computer.
Follow these steps to charge the HP iPAQ Pocket PC using the universal desktop cradle:
  1. Plug the AC adapter into an electrical outlet and connect the other end of the AC adapter to the AC connector on the universal desktop cradle.
  2. Connect the serial or USB cradle cable into the appropriate port on the desktop PC.Figure : Connecting with the cradle
  3. Slide the bottom of the HP iPAQ Pocket PC into the cradle and push firmly to seat it.

I got the same problem. I even tried to plug the battery to the second battery charging slot, still couldn't get it back to life. But the Ipaq screen lights on with progress bar progress for about 5 seconds, then dead again. I even doubted the battery was toasted.
I gave it a final shot:
1. Remove the battery, and then put it back.
2. While the screen lights on, within 2 seconds, cold reset the unit by press the hole with stylus and push the power button at top in the same time.
In my case, the progress bar will keep going until I see the tap screen instruction and everything back to normal. But it reminds me that the removable battery is totally discharged. So I put it in cradle and I am able to synch it with my PC. Everything seems o.k. while it sits in the cradle, except the charging light won't turn red.
When I remove it from the cradle, it still lights on, battery shows 99% which is healthy. but when I turned it off, it won't start anymore. I have to repeat the above steps to revive it. Sometimes I have to remove the battery and wait for a while and then put it back, so that the screen can light on to give me chance to cold reset.
Conclusion: Maybe need a new battery. I will check Ebay to get one.
Please post if you have other solutions.

How did you charge the unit? If you have not done so, try charging in on the computer for a few hours. Sometimes this can help.
