My iPAQ HP 2215 wont turn on

I don't know what I did wrong but my PDA won't turn on. The yellow charge light don't come on when I put it on the charger. I've changed the battery and same problem. Can this problem be fixed or do I have to say good bye to my PDA.

    The battery drained. I had to buy a new a/c cord (other one chewed up by dog). But when i tried to charge the battery the yellow light wouldn't even come on. I ordered a new battery but still having the same problem . It won't power on at all. Tried the reset, still nothing.



    Any suggestions? I would at least like to be able to retrieve my info - all my addresses/phone numbers, etc.



    Can it be fixed?

    Thanks,

    susan

On your battery door make sure both latch tabs are intact and the battery door lock fully engages. the tabs are really flimsy, i've broke them myself.

Hp ipaq seems dead


Without know exactly what already you tried to powered it on, I can only especulate on all the possible reasons, so let go one by one throuh them and their possible solutions:

1. The RX3000 Ipaq family has a known mechanical issue on the switch that senses when the back cover lid is properly closed.

When the switch is nor properly depressed, the PDA won't charge the battery if plugged on the cradle or to the USB sync cable, or won't turn on.

Remove the back cover lid and the battery, put them back again. Check the cover lid is placed flush and that there is not any gap between the cover and the PDA body.

Try again in power it on and/or charge the battery, confirming the orange LED light is turning on.

2. Either the cradle/USB sync cable or the AC wall adapter are defective.

The PDA won't power on if the battery is not charged to the minimum voltage for it. If the AC wall adapter or the cable/Cradle are defective, won't power on.

Put to charge the battery and confirm the orange LED light is turning on. If so, the you can discard that the cradle/USB cable or AC wall adapter are defective.

It the orange LED light won't turn on, it may be either one of these three parts that are defective, or that the back cover lid is not properly closed.

3. The battery dried out. If the battery is defective or won't accept charge, the pda won't power on.

To discard a defective battery, put the PDA to charge it, and it will power on when plugged to the USB cable or to the charger, and check in the settings screen, on the power icon, if the battery is charging.

If the back cover lid is properly placed, and the PDA won't power on when plugged to the USB cable or AC wall adapter, then the battery is not the problem.

4. Discarding that the battery or the USB cable or cradle or the back cover lid are the problem for this problem, the only option that is left is that the main board is defective.

Such failure on the mainboard could be caused for several reasons (moisture or humidity or water damage, or a electronic component that is worn out, or a integrated circuit that is shorted, etc) but it can be only verified and confirmed by an electronics technician.

You have the option of send it to be repaired, or try it yourself, which will require to buy a PDA with working mainboard (or the mainboard alone) and swap the parts. It requires a minimum of technical skills to do it.

Hi xx

It sure does sound like a battery. If it is more than 12 months old, and regularly charged(daily) , then it will need replacement.

Ipaq unresponsive


That's a very odd scenario. Have you tried putting it on the cradle without the battery? One possibility is that it was an incorrect battery that you put into it and it somehow fried the PDA. That's however very unlikely. Have you tried putting your old battery in it?

if you didn't perform backup on the pda before it happened, there is nowhere you can restore your settings from, try to sync with your pc, if you did it before, you must be able to get your contacts back

Ipaq 2215 will not boot


how do you know that new battery is anygood
many are old sat on self for years and no good now.
this device is 14years old now. 2003 reviews show it.
so what do you do with it?
games?
diary?
my guess integrated WiFi , using that? with home router?
can it run Whatsap or Skype?
maybe battery charging is failing?
why not just take the cash to fix this old PDA
and buy a used, smart phone, some are like $20 now .
old and slow and small but miles ahead of any PDC.
just thought.

Does the ipaq 2215 work with Outlook 2002?


Active Sync will work with many version of outlook. Your PDA interfaces with Active Sync. Certain versions of Windows Mobile software and/or PDA's require higher versions of active sync to sync correctly.
