Compaq iPAQ 3850 Not charging/turning on

I recently got a used iPAQ 3850.
It had not been used for at least a year and was unresponsive.
I have replaced the battery but it still will not charge or turn on.
Attempted a hard reset to no avail.
Any helps or ideas would be appreciated.

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.

HP Ipaq does not turn on


Ufortunately, the battery is likely the culprit.
You can try removing the battery overnight, then leave on charger for at least 12 hours.

These batteries generally require replacement every 1-3 years. They deteriorate quite rapidly if left unused/uncharged for extended periods of time (like a year!)

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...

2. Uninstall Activesync if you have it installed
3. Restart your computer
4. Re-install activesync
5. Restart your PPC
6. When asked to connect the PPC connect it via USB

Ipaq unresponsive


That's a very odd scenario. Have you tried putting it on the cradle without the battery? One possibility is that it was an incorrect battery that you put into it and it somehow fried the PDA. That's however very unlikely. Have you tried putting your old battery in it?
