My pda hp 4700 won't turn on. It's about 3 years old

My pda hp 4700 won't turn on. It's about 3 years old. It was working one day and the next it quit. Could it be a battery failure that quickly? I did have some charging problems 2 day's before it just quit. Thx. My IPAQ 4700 will turn on for about 5-10 minutes then will not turn back on. Amber Charge light is gone on AC power.  I've had it for 3 years -very low use, just navigation about  20 times on the ground and in the air. Never dropped. Now bought a nice new battery, and same bloody thing..... i hate it i;m begining to think it has built in obsolescence. I hate the way you have to bloody align the screen after hard restart. I hate the on/off button dimmer stuff. I hate the language it uses, like.. 'illegal' or 'violation' or some stupid words like that. I will give it violation... I bought it because my ex friend had one. I may just throw it out of the window or somehow execute it through shear frustration. Oh by the way does anyone know what the problem is with it?

My phones charge finish quickly. Why


If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I have a Toshiba 26AV502R tv, was working yesterday and now it won't turn on? It's about a year old. What do I do to fix this?


the only thing you can try to do: unplug TV, let it "reset" for a minute or so, then plug it back in. If that won't help, means: surrender to repair service. for 1 year, even with 24/7 usage, there is a slim chance for "bloated" capacitors inside of TV's power supply, but quite a good chance of your main board failure. Now a days they quite compact, packed with high temperature producing IC chips, led-free solder, which has drawback of "fatigue" failure. Or, there might be power surge involved. In any case, except "lock up", appeal to TV repair service.
good luck,

HP Ipaq H4355 PDA charging problem


Use common sense and frequently charge the battery even when the device is not used.
Draining a battery fully often kills it permanently.

Battery won't charge after being replaced


The charger might be bad. Or then the pdas connector is bad, or the motherboard is damaged.

to find out is your charger working you could use a tester to test it or another pda.

If you could get some power into the pda you could use the bootloader to test the device. Its been years since I had my 3850.

Il have to find instructions on how to get to the bootloader but test the other things first.

Drop a comment.

Yes, you can but it might it will probably be costly to buy a used motherboard. I suggest just buying a new or used PDA at ebay very cheap. Prices for PDA are now very cheap.

IMate JAM battery drained off


When I bought my Imate I had the same problem. Put the charger on it and leave it for an hour or so and check the results. Just so the backup battery gains charge.

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...
