HP IPAQ HW6915 get stuch charging non original battery

I just bought a non original replacement battery 3.7V 1200mAh for my IPAQ HW6915, but during the charging process, the telephone get stuck with the green led on, and I have to reset it in order to use it. I replaced the battery with another replacement, and I got the same result.
With the original battery the problem does not exist (mind that the original battery is slightly exhausted). Is it possible that the battery for the 65XX
series is not compatible with my 6915? Is there some other known issue around non original batteries?

I found out how to not to get stuck. :)
Just set START->Settings->System->Power->Advanced: UNcheck "Turn off device if not used for..." On AC power.
And when your PDA is in a cradle or on a charger, do not suspend it. It is also useful to set the backlight to switch off after some time when on AC.
Tadaaa!
:)
I hope I helped.

I have an iPaq hw6915 that keeps crashing even though there is still 60-80% battery life in it. I've had it for about 2 years, and this problem started 2 or 3 weeks ago. Do I need a new battery, or could...


It is more likely to be some kind of system corruption. If you have not installed much software and don't stand to lose much if you were to reinitialize the system, I would try a hard reset if all else has failed.
The OS is non writable, so it would be very difficult for anyone to hack into while you are online, unlike a desktop or laptop system, which is far more vulnerable to such attacks. These PDAs are however vulnerable to power surges and power cuts when connected via the cradle etc. I would also agree with others that the battery is certainly a weak point with these models, although personally I am not willing to pay out HP prices for a replacement each year, and mine also tends to show 80% charge much of the time.
You should also probably be more specific about your description of the fault - under what conditions does it crash, for example?

My HP Ipaq 6915 goes off at 60% battery level or when i try to connect to wi fi, and switch off my bluetooth. At 85% battery power level i cant make or receive calls. It just loses network connectivity,...


Hello,

The batteries from Ebay that are from China have lots of issues. I use an HP 6945 phone/pda and had the same issue with my original battery. I tried a cheap battery and it died within 2 months. I ordered an HP original battery and have been using it again full strength for 7 months. The new battery works bluetooth, wi-fi and gps as well as phone down to about 15% before I recharge. The HP batteries are more expensive but they are worth the extra price.
