    Hi there. My iPAQ doesnt turn on anymore. When I plug the charger in, the screen that appears when a soft reset is executed flashes then the red LED flashes. This happens on a continuous cycle if I leave the chareger pluged in. However when the charger is unpluged there is no life in the iPAQ at all.
    Please help

Screen has began to flash on and off and wont charge


I had a similar situation with my pipo s1. After further investigation I found that the jack the charger cord plugs into went bad. My charge light wouldn't stay on unless you held the charger plug in a particular position. The jack is hardwired into one of the circuit boards and to replace the circuit board was half the cost of the whole tablet. I junked it and bought a kindle fire. Better quality and longer lasting battery.

My red xbox 360 controller wont charge with the included play and charge kit after i turn off my console, it works if i do it as soon as it dies but not if ive played for a little while and then turn it...


Basically an xbox battery has a built in 'memory' that it tells the xbox how much charge is in it and the problem with rechargable batteries is that if they're not used for a while and left at room temperature their charge begins to dissipate so when you plug it in the battery 'thinks' it's charged and tells the xbox the same when in truth it's not. What to do is keep plugging and unplugging the charger on top (waiting until the light comes on) until the charger light stays red (as opposed to going red then immediately green) the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice to clue it as to just how much power it REALLY has in and will then start charging as normal.

My HTC p3300 battery not gettin charged. It works on direct power for some time and get automatically shutdown after some time..indicating no charge. Keeps shutting down often.


I too have been experiencing problems. Replaced the battery but it happened again. The battery says it is at almost 100% capacity however several times in the day, when I go to turn it on it doesn't respond. I end up taking the battery out and then have to connect it to a charger (USB) so that the charging light blinks red once and then turns off. I can then put in the battery again and it will start up again. If I don't connect it to the charger cable to drain (get the red light to flash once), and try just putting back in the battery, I've noticed that the screen has a faint glow as though it was on but the screen is completely blank. I'm starting to think that there must be a short circuit somewhere because I'm going to assume that the new battery is good.

Wont charge/hold a charge


That definitely is a battery issue. The battery is either Low Soc or it is a failed battery. Most batteries on PDA's usually fail within a year because of the immense amount of use the phone has and the majority of the time the batteries are smaller in a PDA. Take your battery to a service center if one is in your area or call your carrier and inquire about the warranty on batteries (usually 1-year).

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.

Red Light!


Hi xx

It sure does sound like a battery. If it is more than 12 months old, and regularly charged(daily) , then it will need replacement.

Ipaq 4155 wont turn on, dont charge, dont anything, is totally death


Hello,

I had some similar experiences with these ipaq's when I was working in a specialised service center. I'll try to give some help or tips through the internet, altrough if i could have seen or diagnosticate these pda's myself it would have been more easier. First of all these problems have 2 main causes. Most of the pda's comply with one of them, it is very rare that a pda will develop this problem by having both causes.
The first cause is the hardware one. A component called the main voltage convertor is broken. It's a small chip that uses the voltage given by the main battery to convert it's value to various tensions required by some of the components on the pda's main board. If some sub-parts of this chip fails to work, the result will appear as the problem you face, In this case there isn't much to do. Most service centers will replace the whole mainboard because that particular chip is very hard to find as a replacement and difficult to desolder from the board.
The second cause could be a major firmware / ROM memory corruption. These things can happen out from nowhere. In my time working for service centers I've tried to isolate a pattern for this problem but without much succes. However it seems that most of these problem tend to appear durring charging cicles due to power spikes or drops on the main AC voltage supplied to the charger. This is only a supposition, I'm not sure yet on this cause. What to do here? Well this problems are fixable but first of all you must be sure that this is a software problem, not a hardware one. So let's diagnosticate some things.
Try to charge the pda. Ignore any lights or beeps or whatever your pda is showing on the screen. As long as the charger is connected the charging process is based on the most primary charging circuits on the pda's motherboard. If the pda is not charging or cannot hold any charge (when you unplug it the screen fades away or it simply doesn't do anything else) maybe that circuit is broken (this is a a sign of serious hardware problems ) or maybe the battery is to old/weak. Batteries don't die out of nowhere, if you remember your pda to work and have some 2-3 hours of standby time it's imposible that now, suddently the battery has drained out so much that even if charged it can't hold out at least 30 min.
So we will assume that you charged the pda for at least 2-3 hours and you see some sign that the battery is working. The next step is crucial. TRY TO PUT THE PDA IN BOOTLOADER MODE. You will achieve this by pressing (and keep them pressed!) the following buttons : power, the far left and right buttons near the control pad (joystick or whatever some people call it) and reset button. You may need another person to help you press these buttons. the order should be the following (first power, then the 2 keys, then reset button for as long as it takes to enter bootloader mode). YOU SHOULD SEE A WHITE SCREEN WITH THE HP LOGO.

If your pda fails to do that, there is nothing more you can do to restore it in a DIY fashion. Probably the bootloader is corrupted or you have a hardware fault. Only a specialised HP service center can help you now. In most cases this will end up with a motherboard replacement.
If your pda does that, then there is a chance to fix it. We will need to probe the bootloader for direct data acces. This is needed for having the ROM memory (and operating system) rewritten. A small program called Mtty will be required to access the bootloader via an usb link.

Please make this tests first and then reply with your results. If anyone of you is in situation #2 there may be a chance.
