Question about HP iPAQ H3600 Pocket PC
Hello :) I bought an ipaq3600 off ebay, when it is in the cradle charging it doesnt ever seem to charge fully, and as soon as I take it out of the cradle ( even after 12 hours of charging) it will not do ANYTHING....the only time I can get a screen up is when it is in its cradle atached to the PC and power source. It also wont hold information for long even when in its cradle....I enterred some contacts and basic owner information and its gone since I rebooted my PC which it is conected to via the cradle. I was hoping you could give your opinion as to wether I should buy a new battery, of if this sounds more serious and involved, im recently unemplyed and I just cant afford to poor money into this thing if its unlikely to solve the problem. Im so grateful for any assistance and ideas you can offer
In general, Ebay Ipaq's come without a battery (well, not one worth anything). The problem is that it really could be two different issues: either the charging circuit or the battery. The only way to test this is if you know someone else that owns this model and see if the battery works in theirs, or purchase a new battery. But the new battery might not fix it, so if it's cheap, I'd try it but if you're tight on cash then it might not be worth the chance. I'd give a new battery a 70% chance of working.
