Acer N50 sometimes it doesnot turn on

Hi I have my N50 for a year now and sometimes it does not turn on when I am pressing the button on the side. If I try to remove the battery then the red light on top is lighting and after that my pda has done a hard reset. Do you have any suggestion? thanks

Re: Acer N50 sometimes it doesnot turn on

Hey, I had a similiar problem with my pda few years ago. It didnt turn on, or then the startup info screen came up and the pda just froze or shutdown. I had to hardreset also to get it runing. After a few weeks of this the pda died. It's possible that your pda is about to reach its end. There could be other problems. One thing you could try to do is reinstalling the operateing system if you have such. You can also buy newer operating system upgrades but might not be available for your product and it might not fix the problem if it is a hardware issue. Good luck.

3230 problem

I think it is due to installation of unnecessay apps.
The best thing to do is to format ur phone memory. It improves ur phone performance. it doesnot erases the necessary applications such as camera, mp3 player, sound recorder, etc.
So format ur phone using :
1) turn off the phone.
2) press & hold 3 buttons ( green dial button + * + 3 numpad ) and turn on the phone.
3) Hold the 3 buttons until formatting screen appears.
4) when it is finished, it asks for restart.
5) After restart, ur phone is free of all problems.

Looking for ur kind feedback.

O2 atom battery won't charge

I would suggest you to buy a new battery, since the one you have is 2 years old. If that doesnot solve the problem, you could try checking the mini connector on the phone. Sometimes, due to heavy usage (connect and reconnect to the jack) it is damage/loose. Try bring them to a repair shop.

Hi mach1 Your PDA is fine, it only needs two things. A Firmware update that could be obtained from Acer's website. And your battery needs to be replaced. If it was up to me, I prefer that you visit a support center, then get all your problems fixed. Goodluck
