Question about HP iPAQ H3835 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Only works while plugged in

I have recently pulled out my ipaq 3835 again after not using it for a long time and I have a problem. The ipaq only works when plugged into the AC adapter. As soon as I pull the ipaq away from the power adapter... it locks up. I can soft reset and it still locks up. I can plug it in again... and it works. Basically, the PDA is only usable when plugged in.

My guess is that there is something wrong with the battery.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would say def. its the battery thats dead!
Did a quick search for batteries and found a lot and costs about 10-30$ for a battery
and some include a charger as well.
Worth spending if you gonna use it daily!

HARD RESET HP iPAQ h5000 Series 5450,5550 5555 HP h3800 Series 3830 3835 3850...


While holding down on the far left (calendar) and far right (iTask or Today) press in on the reset button (reset hole) with your stylus for about 2-3 seconds. After you see the screen fade, you can verify the hard reset by pressing the power button. If the device does not power on, then you have successfully reset you unit. To reactivate the battery you must either connect the iPAQ back to AC power or press the reset button again with your stylus

Can i use windows vista with my ipaq 3835 pocket pc and what is till the memory expandable upto


No, you cannot use Windows Vista on your iPAQ.
I am not 100% sure but, I have seen products made before the whole HD SD cards not being able to use them so, I would stick to the regular SD cards which go to 2GB.

I need a charger for my hp ipaq but i don't know what series


In general, there's three types of charger you might need. Really ancient iPAqs used a round DC jack type charger, then there was a long time where all iPaqs used the same flat 22-pin connector. More recently, HP has moved to the same mini-USB plug used for a lot of mobile devices.

If you're really stuck, try http://www.ipaqrepair.co.uk/store.php?cat_id=25 and match your iPaq to the pictures.

Window Vista syncronizing with iPAQ 3835 problem


In order to sync any iPAQ with Windows Vista, you will need to download and install Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/device-center-download.mspx.

Activesync will only work for XP Operating Systems and earlier.
Notes
  • To find out whether your version of Windows Vista or Windows 7 is 32-bit or 64-bit, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. The version is listed after System Type.
  • You can use Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 only with phones running Windows Mobile 2003 or later. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 devices. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, and if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync content to any of these devices, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
  • You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.
  • You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use Windows Mobile Device Center to sync.

Online with a Compaq iPAQ H3835 Pocket PC


The 3835 did not have WiFi capability so you can't get online. Probably not worth messing with unless you're a real techie. I think there is a distro of Linux that can run on it if you want to play with that.
