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

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.

You'll need a very small flat screwdriver and ease the case open from the back center to the corners. Then the sides should pop loose.

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.
