Ufortunately, the battery is likely the culprit.
You can try removing the battery overnight, then leave on charger for at least 12 hours.

These batteries generally require replacement every 1-3 years. They deteriorate quite rapidly if left unused/uncharged for extended periods of time (like a year!)

Compaq iPAQ 3850 Not charging/turning on


Try this - don't give up Leave it charging, even if it takes three days. I sold one a few years ago on ebay and the buyer was insistent it wouldn't charge. Eventually it did start charging and there were no more problems.

No life


There are a couple issues that could be going on here, so let's address them both:

1. Your iPAQ's battery could not be charged. Try charging the iPAQ on it's cradle for a couple hours and then try it.

2. Your iPAQ could have it's back light turned off meaning the screen is still displaying everything, but you just can't see it. Assuming the iPAQ is currently off, press the power button once ( to turn it on) then try holding down the power button for 5 seconds and see if the screen lights up.
