Question about HP iPAQ H3600 Pocket PC

Ipaq3600 possible battery problem?

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.

Hello

This is either a problem with your charger or the charging port of your phone

Try charging your phone with another charger that works with you phone to see if it works,if it doesnt then you need to change your phone battery charger

Also you should wedge your battery at the bottom with a folded piece of paper because the battery might have become loose and doesnt fit in properly into its compartment so by doing that you will be providing better contact between battery and battery terminal.

If the above still doesn't make the battery charge then the problem is from the charging port of your phone.

The charging port is where you connect your charger into,it is probably damaged and needs to be looked into and replaced.

My sidekick 3 won't turn on,it's plugged in but nothing's happening


I think you are going to need to call T-Mobile, and have them troubleshoot it, or take it in, and see if they can figure it out. Make sure the battery is in all the way, and its fully charged. Other than that I dont know. Good luck hope this helps.
