IPAQ 3765 Won't Turn On

My Compaq used to work. Then I lost it about two years ago, and found it yesterday. When I found it, I tried turning it on, and the compaq boot up screen faintly appeared and then it died immediately. So, I found the charger and plugged it in. It has given me the amber charging light, but it won't do anything more than that. It has been plugged in for about 24 hours. I can't get it to do anything. I've held down the power button, and it won't even try to turn the background on, it just stays pitch black.

Does it turn on when in the cradle? If so, it's the battery.

You may have to buy a new battery for the unit. Simple as that

Light not working

The screen is wearing out, specifically the backlight. There's not much you can do at this point, but if you shop around, you should be able to find a smartphone app that does everything your old PDA used to. Mine quit and I still keep it as a memento of happy times.

I have the IPAQ pocket pc 3765 and I was replacing battery but when I opened I saw the battery door out of its place but I do not know where is located then I can not to finish my work. Can you describe...

Welcome to Fixya

As far as i can remember, there are no battery door for ipaq. Once the device opens, gently pry out the original battery. This one should come right off (it is only stuck using some double sided tape). All you need to do is to replace the double adhesive tape if you are going to replace the battery then close the unit. Tip: Use an old credit card or something that won't damage the case to gently lift the battery out.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Where do I find the model number?

Look on the capsule-shaped sticker on the back. Near the bottom, left, you'll see under the part number ('P/N') the word 'MODEL' and then a number ('3765') under that.

Compaq iPAQ 3850 Not charging/turning on

Try this - don't give up Leave it charging, even if it takes three days. I sold one a few years ago on ebay and the buyer was insistent it wouldn't charge. Eventually it did start charging and there were no more problems.

IPAQ 3700 series

Most iPaqs use a small AC Adapter This model will still need an AC Adapter, because it does not draw any current from USB to charge.
