Question about HP iPAQ hw6515 Pocket PC
The PDA went dead and I ordered new battery which I put into the PDA. No power. I put it to the charger and yet no power. I tried the charger and the battery in my freinds PDA and it was working. What could wrong?
Here's some instructions to fix this :
It's basically a similar fix for what CTF1800 said but uses paper.

I opened my phone up and checked everything inside.
Found that tiny switch that the back cover turns on. The tiny switch is
located next to the dime size speaker. Found that any little movement
of the back cover can turn off that switch.
The way I fixed my phone was to make the switch stick in the closed position. This you can do by using tape or that clear clue for crafts, you know the kind that needs a heat gun.
This way the switch does not depend on the back cover. Just keep in mind that now the phone will stay on without the back cover.
Now I can use my phone without any worries.
** VERY IMPORTANT **
Make sure you do a full back up onto a SD Card before you do anything
