Question about HTC Touch P3450 Smartphone

HTC Powers down when booting up...

Unit has been fully charged, and is still on the charger. I press power on, It boots up, gets to the main window (time is displayed) and about 5 seconds later it powers down.

I have to remove the battery, charge it again, and it then does the same thing. It will not stay powered on.

Suspect a bad battery, but do not have a spare to test with.

My guess is a defective battery. Might have to send it back to your carrier and get a replacement. Or go to one of your carriers stores and have them take a look at it.

hold down F8 when it powers up. May need to remove battery and power cord. New windows 8 and probably windows 10 do not fully power down usually you have to hold shift key when shutting down windows from operating system. So it may not go into safe mode without it being shut down fully.

Charging battery compaq presario c700

If you can reach inside the computer and rub the battery contacts gently to remove the corrosion ,which is invisible , this will help greatly. Sometimes even a new battery will suffer the same. Clean the battery contacts also turn off the laptop and charge it fully do this on a regular basis. Say once every 2 months

Booting up issue

Does it do this with the mains charger connected or only on battery power?

The plugging in the mains charger if not already, wait a couple of minutes and then try switching it on.

If the boots up fine you more than likely have a battery problem.

If it still doesn't start then you either have a power supply problem on the laptop itself or your main charger is faulty and not charging the battery.

You can also remove the battery and try booting it with only the mains charger connect.

TomTom will not turn on its fully charged

Try to do a "Boot" .... by pressing and holding down the ON/OFF button for 5 seconds (or a lot more) until the device powers on again. Yes, at times, it may take a minute or more ! of holding that button down.

Just had a thunderstorm last night. My Dell Inspiron 700m was connected to a Triplett Power Strip. Other devices connected to the power strip seem to be working. When I put the power supply plug in the...

Normally the AC adaptor gets fried, the fuse inside the plug that goes into the mains normally blows. If you are getting power to the laptop in some form, you should first of all check the adapter.

Plug this into the mains and, with a multimeter set to 20 volts DC place the red probe onto the inner jack pin, and the black probe to the outer part of the jack, see if the voltage reading is 20 volts, give or take a volt. ONLY do this if you have first inspected the charger, check for any burning smell or melting of the case or wires (to be safe).

If the voltage is correct, (remember that dell laptops will only charge with genuine Dell chargers), the charger may be powering the laptop but NOT charging it..If you can, try and obtain another Dell charger to eliminate the charger being at fault.

Now remove the battery, press and hod the power button for 30 seconds and try it on ac power alone, a fried battery will sometimes stop the laptop from booting, if it DOES boot, the battery has been damaged (possibly the battery charge circuit too).

If it does NOT boot, the problem lies on the motherboard. There is, near the charger port on the motherboard a small ceramic fuse of about 3mm length with metal caps. This may look intact but if again, you apply a multimeter set to 10 Ohms across the terminals of the fuse and do not get a reading, the fuse is dead and will need replaced. I normally bridge the fuse connections with a soldered wire of 3 amps but this is NOT a recommended fix long term

If the laptop still does not boot, there is a resistor or possibly a capacitor blown, remove the motherboard fully and check , you will see a blown resistor as it will appear charred and blackened, whilst capacitors tend to burst at the top (usually).

In this case, it is probably not worth the cost of fixing.

If the laptop does boot, but does not charge even with a new charger, look at the motherboard again, near the battery I THINK there is a similar ceramic fuse for the battery charging circuit, check this also

from a power off device.

press and hold the center joystick button, and the volume down buttons.

dont leave those two!

and now power on the device. wait for a gray screen asking you to make a clean boot. press the volUP or volDOWN button and after about 5 minutes your device will make an hard reset (clean boot) and will restore it to factory settings.

good luck!

Battery Not Identified.


I suggest you a few steps to solve your problem.
  • remove the charger and press the power button till all residue power is radiated.
  • then connect the charger and charge the battery fully and try booting the system.
  • if this don't work check the output of your charger and see if it is working fine.
  • if it is working fine then remove the battery and connect the charger and try starting the system.
  • if it works then there are two things possible.
  1. battery gone.
  2. IC responsible for charging is gone.
i hope you can figure out the problem through this.

Thank you

Will not boot up or turn on though it is getting power

The Charger could be bad, Try replacing that, or let charge, then try to turn on. The laptop might not boot with AC power. kinda stupid but maybe. If that doesn't work, the AC adapter is bad.
