PDA Does not go on

I had misplaced my Ipaq PDA 1950 It was missing for about 1.5 years. While moving I found it. It Does not go on I tried charging it. It does not charge or go on. I would like to know If the battery is dead and the unit is plugged into an outlet will the unit go on or does the battery have to be chargeable for it to work. Replaceing the battery will allow it to work? It was not damaged. Thanks

Re: PDA Does not go on

In my case, the AC Adapter cable turned out to be faulty! The iPaq works fine now- except I don't have a Data Transfer Cable, the iPaq 1950 has only Infrared and the Laptop only Bluetooth for remote connection.

Re: PDA Does not go on

Plug it in and use the soft reset. Wait 10 seconds and then turn it on.

2. remove battey, soft reset, reinsert battery
3. charge on ac only = 30 minutes, remove battery, remove power, hard reset then soft reset.
4. charge on ac only = 4 hrs
5. Power off. Soft reset.

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?

Rx1950 freeze on soft reset

You can do a hard reset by doing the following...

01) Press and hold down the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
02) While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the "Reset" button/hole on the back of the iPAQ until the screen goes blank.
03) Release the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
04) Press the "Reset" button/hole again (so that it resets/powers on.)

My H5450 won't charge!

When you charge up your iPaq, do you use the cradle, or do you use the AC-adapter with the little iPaq power converter that came with the iPaq? Try both, and see if it charges up your pda. Try and borrow an iPaq car-charger and see if it charges up that way (the ones that do not need the iPaq power converter). If you are lucky enough to power up the iPaq even for 2 minutes, enable USB fast charging in the SETTING -> BATTERY. Your USB-data-cable or cradle will then be able to charge it up that way...
