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.

Make sure you do a full back up onto a SD Card before you do anything

Battery just changed, but then went dead. Battery Tender blinks red.

Its possible the charger is telling you the battery is too dead for the charger to work. A safety feature to keep from burning up the charger.
I'm not aware of any fuses between the jumping post and the battery. You may have a short in the car that is draining power.

Acer aspire 5516 battery and charger problem

Hi, this could be an unhelpfull suggestion but the charger may not be compatable with your laptop. Laptops notoriosly have different power settings, you may be forced to purchase a new Acer charger. Try ebay, you may be lucky

Palm Zire 71 works when it is on the sync but not off

You are right
there is a component on the main board of your PDA
that is most likely fried
power from the PC chord will go to the PDA
but when you unplug it the machine will look to the battery for power
and the electricity will convert to heat at the point of that fried component
on the more thin Palm models you can feel it without taking the case off

and it will "forget" any new information you input due to the type of memory it uses

Dell Axim x51v that will not power on.

Assuming the battery is not dead, try taking the battery out for a few seconds to be sure the PDA is turned all the way off. Put the battery back in and close the back. Use the stylus to hold the reset button in (on the back) while you press and hold the power button. If the battery is dead do this while it is connected to the charger. It should diplay a message telling you to press the mail button (to the left of the cursor control button) to the reset to factory defaults. Caution this will erase everything in the built in memory including any programs you installed after you recieved it.

Hope this helps

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.
