    System was working fine and after a coupke of use will not turn on at all. I've even purchased a new battery in case this was the issue but no positive result.

    Mine's the same. Working ok then put away for a couple of weeks and completely dead. Left on charge for 24 hours. Hard reset but still won't come on. Have tried it on a mobile charger also and done hard reset whilst on this but still dead. Help...

I have the same problem. I think these devices have a fault where they can not power up if they are emptied all the way. I had the same thing happen during warranty period and I sent the device to servis. They said nothing was wrong, but now the same thing happened and I have tried everything to get it back to life and no success... I guess I would somehow have to charge the battery outside the iPAQ as it will not charge

After a hard reset you must do a soft reset to enable the battery.

This isdue might caused by a faulty battery or charger.

Try using another charger and see if problem exist. If not, try replacing your phone's battery.

Tomtom problem

When you turn off the device with power button, you actually set the device in stand by mode, not fully turned off.
This state will drain the battery.

The only way I know to turn device fully off, is to do a reset with paperclip at bottom of device...

Radio CD not working & lights don't flash remote keylock

Sometime the computer in car will shut down a circuit when it sees a problem even if it only occure once. You can try to disconnect the battery for at least 2 min so all sys power off (some have capacitors that mantaine a charge for short time). If a battery disconnect does not clear problem you have go to dealer and have them to clear codes and reset you modules and your preferences

Turning on

You may need to keep it plugged in and charged for a few hours before you turn it on again. I ran into a similar issue where there was no juice left in the battery, but after doing a full charge, it worked fine.
