Re: problem with 3630

Unfortunatly this isnt a new issue. It sounds as though your recharging system has went on the fritz. If this is the case then money signs are going to soon be appearing. replacing the charging system is impracticle and the system blocks startup so this would even cause a new battery to not function properly and also probably what ruined your previous one.

Early today, I inserted a 8350i's battery to my 7100i and it started all right. I bought my own battery for the 7100i and I am charging it right now, and no response.

try disconnecting the charger and disengage the, put the same battery on and charge it.if it doesn't work, insert your 8350 batt again.. if it the 8350 works, your new batt is defective., if not, you may have damaged your phone because 8350 is not the specified batt for your me if you have further questions. o9l8 45o 554sven. GOD BLESS..

Your battery is probably low. Anytime you do a hard reset make sure the ac cord is plugged in.

IPaq rx3115 working like PC not Pocket PC, need to plugin always

You need to purchase a new removable battery for your RX
The removable batts usually only last about a year (like cell phone batteries).
Although it is showing 100% charge, the battery is not storing enough power to run the ipaq

The rx series uses 2 batteries, one is the removable one u can see/access when u remove the back cover. The other batt is a small round batt which stores the basic info for your system (so you don't lose your data when u swap out the removable battery).

This small (backup) batt is similar to the cmos battery on a laptop or pc.
You cannot easily replace this, as the unit needs to be disassembled to access this batt.
If you are tech-y (and brave), the replacement button batteries are sold on ebay for $9-12

Normally, if your removable batt is bad, you could still use your unit plugged in, and could
remove from AC power without losing data. Not the case if your replaceable batt is exhausted.
When both batteries are bad, you lose everything when u remove unit from AC power.

My workaround without having to disassemble unit:
Purchase and fully charge new removable batt (They have huge capacity ones available for like $15 - better than the original !).
Load up all your programs & settings the way you like.
Perform full backup to SD card (& also on PC via active sync - to be safe)
Now the only time you should lose your data (like hard reset) is if you allow the battery
to completely drain, in which case you can restore your backup.
If you purchase 2 removable batts, you can easily swapout without losing data if you
use the usb charge cable & leave ipaq plugged in while you change battery

Hope this helps

Need new LG AC Power Supply Model H-P 220

I had a similr problem It turned out that the power supply cord was not the problem, it was the main battery. Luckily, in 2000, I bought 2 extra main batteries. I took out the old battery and put in one the 2 new unused ones and my machine is working and charging perfectly now.

Todo a hard reset, First press and hold the power button, while holding the power button use the tip of the stylus to gently press and release the reset button. wait for the logo to appear then release the power button.

when you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your hand held press up on the 5way navigator to finish the reset

Palm Tungsten E2 won't work after power cord is removed.

The traditional steps for resetting charging problems are:
1) press reset /while/ the power cord is plugged in
2) unplugging the battery for about 30 seconds, then plugging it back in

You have done #2, but I do not know if you have done #1. Try it, then try to recharge again. If that fails then you probably need a new battery. I have found them on eBay before.

Palm treo 700 wx won't charge

Verizon 700wx:I had the same problem. With little or no movement, the phone would go from charging to not over and over. At home with it perfectly still it would charge maybe 1/4 in 6 hours. Same problem with 3 different chargers. With the battery out, I dipped a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol squeeze out excess and jammed it into the charging port on the phone. Put the battery back in and oh **** nothing. Took it back out and let it dry for a few minutes and were back in business. No more charging problems at all.

May be a little risky, but warranty was up and what did I have to lose. Anyway good luck!
