Acer n310 pda power problem

The pda will not switch on at all now. Used to do this, but was cured by removing, then replacing battery, soft resetting. Know at least one other user with exactly the same problem. Can anyone help?
Thanks in anticipation

I have a Acer pda model C530 and it has a switch that detects if the cover is correctly inserted, check that switch, buy electronic contact cleaner spray and clean it (and clean the battery contacts,on/off button) if possible try with a new or known good battery. If it has dropped to the floor it might have some bad contacts.

try to hard reset

It is some time very important to Hard reset a PDA for example if you want your PDA to be factory default or or operating system corruption etc the following are the information, how to do a hard reset on every PDA as different PDA manufacturer have different methods.

To hard reset, press and hold the power button and press in on the reset button (reset hole) on the back of the unit for about 2-5 seconds. Release both buttons and you will see a confirmation screen asking you if you would like

Dead!


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.

Dell Axim X50 PDA won't turn on


Had the same problem. Did some research and fixed the problem by performing a "soft reset". Tap the reset indentation on the back once quickly. Do NOT hold it in or you will lose all saved data. Mine's working fine now.

Palm Tungsten E2 won't work after power cord is removed.


The traditional steps for resetting charging problems are:
1) press reset /while/ the power cord is plugged in
2) unplugging the battery for about 30 seconds, then plugging it back in

You have done #2, but I do not know if you have done #1. Try it, then try to recharge again. If that fails then you probably need a new battery. I have found them on eBay before.

Hi mach1 Your PDA is fine, it only needs two things. A Firmware update that could be obtained from Acer's website. And your battery needs to be replaced. If it was up to me, I prefer that you visit a support center, then get all your problems fixed. Goodluck

Soft Reset erases everything


Hi, i remember reading somwhere that if you hold the soft reset button too long you will deactivate the battery. You can reactivate it by inserting the PDA into the cradle. Hope this helps.
