Question about Toshiba e330 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Battery discharges instantly

A group of us received these from our company years back and 50% of us have a reoccurring intermittent problem. We charge our batteries and at some point (sometimes as soon as an hour after) the battery charge drops from where ever it is at that moment immediately to 0V. Changing the battery for a new one does not help.

Re: battery discharges instantly

If the LCD/Display is left on all the time, I can see that it would discharge quickly.Check any settings that have to do with power usage (LCD on time, etc)

I would change the battery still with a known good one. I suppose it is possible that the phone itself has a problem where the battery management/power management IC is haywire. Easist solution is to replace the phone.

Haven't used my m505 for several years. It won't charge/start. Can it be revived, perhaps w/ new internal battery?

If it won't take the charge it is definitly the battery. You can try to cycle it a few times by charging and discharging it a few tmes and it might revive. If not time to replace. Batteries can be $14 and up so google and look around for the best deal.

My iPAQ 5555 won't charge.

well that's really the problem when u go ur phone stocked for a weeks or two. i have my advice.. try charging yout battery manually. how is that? modification is needed. remove your battery from ur phone. and connect it to your charger directly.. (how is that? create a wire that can connect your charger to your battery. make sure u connect the right polarity) in this way your battery will charge for a moment and will give enough power to turn on your phone. because showing up that orange thing when charging up needs an initial power. so that is why. but still u can charge your phone. just live it maybe for an hour. it may work!

Cannot charge new battery

Battery is not a known issue for this model, However 3rd party batteries causes some self discharge issue. Make sure the battery is not defective. The little charge circuit on the battery might have different threshold voltage also. Normally battery should show around 4Volts when fully charged. After save your data try full reset and complete discharge of the battery and try again

Good Luck

Palm tx wont turn on

When the battery is discharged, it is best to charge it overnite.

Have you reset the TX?
Hold the power button down and push in the reset button on the back of the TX with the stylus. Hold the power button down until you get the screen where it ask you if you want to erase/reset the unit. click yes to reset.
Then when it comes back up, re-sync it with the Palm Desktop on your computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Discharging fast

Sounds like your battery has had it mate - grab yourself a new generic, see if that fixes the problem, otherwise try a complete software reinstall

Dell Axim X 50 blinking power button

My power button was also blinking orange/green/orange/green. I pulled the battery and put it in the back of the cradel. It still blinked there too, orange/green. So I bought a battery. Does this sound like your issue?

Fully charge the Mobilepro battery

No. Lithium Ion batteries prefer a partial rather than a full discharge. Repeated full discharging robs the battery of its capacity (useful life), the Lithium Ion battery prefers shallow over repetitive deep discharge cycles. Besides cycling, the performance of the Li-ion is also affected by aging. Capacity loss through aging is independent of use however the capacity is affected by both aging and usage. Battery wear-down on lithium-based batteries is caused by two activities: actual usage or cycling and aging. The wear-down affects by usage and aging apply to all batteries but this is more pronounced on lithium-based systems. The Li-ion batteries prefer a shallow discharge. Partial discharges produce less wear than a full discharge and the capacity loss per cycle is reduced. Simple Guidelines to extend useful life of the battery Charge the Li-ion often, except before a long storage. Avoid repeated deep discharges. Keep the Li-ion battery cool. Prevent storage in a hot car. Never freeze a battery.

Toshiba 740E handheld PC problems with hard reset & battery

It's best kept in its charger whenever possible. One of the issues with it is that the buttons tend to get "hit" and it wakes up and discharges quickly. Even on a full charge, it can drain the battery in just a few hours. The issue is worsened by the supplied case. People have noted that using another case or even gluing felt pads in just the right spots of the holder helps immensely.
