Question about HP iPAQ hw6500 Pocket PC
I have an iPaq and it keeps switching off by itself. I have wedged the battery and it did not help. I thought it was the battery cover but I moved it around and it didn't switch off. After it switches off I must open it, take out the battery, put it back and close the back cover for it to start again. This can happen up to 20 times a day. Please help.
I had exactly the same problem but have now fixed it using bluetack!
I first tried Aroldite to extend the hook on the battey cover - it worked for a while but I noticed that the cover was actually stuck to the switch. As soon as the cover came loose again the problem came back. It seems that the micro switch needs to be held in position.
Put a small amount of bluetack on the end of the top hook on the battey cover - try it it works!

You need to examine your battery cover as one of the c hooks in your cover may be bent or broken. Basically, the hooks on the cover actually press a micro-switch that detects if the battery cover is on.
If your battery cover looks fine, then you may have a software problem. Try getting a firmware upgrade or simply doing a hard reset to see if the problem is still present
