Question about Toshiba e310 Pocket PC

1 Answer

The Battery will not charge

I got a Pocket PC e310 second hand without the manual. I forgot to charge it for about a week and i got a pop up saying:

"To prevent possible data loss, replace or recharge your battery according to to owner's manual."

It has been about 2 weeks and it will not charge if i just plug it in. What do i do?

    I still get the same message despite putting in a brand new battery. I am now attempting to solve the problem by draining the battery completely empty.



    Toshiba no longer seems to support the E310. There must be a software upgrade to fit this problem. Anyone out there have it.

    I got the same message. I put in a new battery still get the battery low message despite a 24 hour charge.



    This sounds like something Toshiba might at one time have had a download to remedy. Anyone out there have access to the fix.

I do have a manual, but not at work with me. However, I do remember seeing an explanation for a switch that is located on the lower left hand corner of the pda that you would have to use a paper clip to reach. I would wait for someone else to verify, but I suspect this is a hardboot type of reset instead of the button located on back that is accessed via the paper clip. This second switch located on the bottom of the device was a batter disconnect or lock out or something like that.
Just my humble thoughts.
I've done lots with the Ipaq series but not so much with the Toshibas. I helped my 10 year old daughter buy this one used off of ebay with her allowance so we had to go with a low cost pda.

My pocket pc e310 wont turn on. i only have the cradle and no ac charger. i have unplugged the battery for a reset but nothing happens after i plug it back in. when plugged in to the cradle, there are no...


The e310 can't use USB power to charge through the cradle. (It needs more than USB specs allow.) You have to supply +5v DC to the connector at the cradle or the e310 itself. Positive terminal is the center pin/hole, negative terminal is the outside barrel of the plug.

Toshiba Pocket PC e310 is shipped with an Enabled security feature, which switches off the batteries. In order to be able to turn on the unit, the Battery Switch must be in a battery "Supply" position. Please check if the Battery Switch is in a Stop position or Supply position. The Battery Switch can be found on the lower left edge of the unit, next to the "Cradle Connection Port". Please see the below diagram The Battery Switch supplies or stops power to the Pocket PC. When using the Pocket PC for the first time, slide this switch to the left with the stylus pen. If you have further questions, please refer to the Instruction Manual page 2-3 (19 of 104).

Reset my Pocket PC


A Reset of your Pocket PC is equivalent to "Restart" of a desktop computer. Carry out the Reset only in such unusual cases as when a button or tapping the screen does not respond. When your Pocket PC is reset, no data will be deleted. All stored information like Addresses, Contacts, Tasks or Programs are still stored in the Pocket PC memory. To Reset the Pocket PC, the power must be on. Then press the Reset switch with the stylus, then release. Your Pocket PC should function properly thereafter. If the functions cannot be restored, even after the reset button is pressed, Initialise your Pocket PC (refer to the FAQ article: How can I initialise my Pocket PC (Factory Reset).

Windows CE Program's


On the new Toshiba e310, e570 and e740 Pocket PCs, Microsoft's new operation system Pocket PC 2002 is installed. The question whether Windows CE programs run under Pocket PC 2002 has no definite answer. Most Windows CE Program will run under Pocket PC 2002. Pocket PC 2002 is an improved version of Windows CE, or rather, the next generation of Microsoft PDA operating systems. Some parts of the internal architecture of the operating system, like the e-Mail system, are of a complete new design and in fact, quite different. So if you run older Windows CE programs using "old and possibly, changed parts of Window CE system", it is quite possible that the Windows CE program will not run or will not operate correctly. Tip: To avoid problems or data loss, we suggest using Pocket PC 2002 programs only. Please note: Pocket PC 2002 is only available for Intel "Strong ARM" processors. This is different to Windows CE, where several CPU's types were supported. Only Windows CE Programs for Intel Strong ARM" processors may run an Pocket PC 2002.

PDA e310, e330 or e740 together with Windows NT 4.0


The Toshiba Pocket PC's e310, e330 and e740 are designed to work together with Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Millennium, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Microsoft Windows NT4.0 is an older operating system, which does not work together with the Toshiba Pocket PC's e310,e330 and e740. Technical background: The Toshiba Pocket PC's have a USB and a Infrared interface to communicate with a Computer. Unfortunately, Microsoft Windows NT4.0 does not support USB nor Infrared. Windows NT supports a serial connection, but the serial interface is not available for the Pocket PC's e310,e330 and e740. Note: There is the possibility to synchronize a PDA over Network or Modem but the ActiveSync Software, which is responsible for the synchronization, will need a "first sync" to establish a "partnership" with the PDA. This "first sync" can only be done via USB.
