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.

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.

I have had this charging overnight but it won't charge. What should I do?


Hello Friend,
It depends on what you mean by charging overnight.
1. When you connect the charger, it shows on the phone that it's charging but after a while if you unplug the charger, it's still not charged: if it's the case, that means the battery is dead and needs to be replaced.
2. When you connect the charger, it doesn't show the phone charging: in this case it can be the charger brocken or the phone charge connector is faulty. you can verify that by moving the charger connector a little bit and see if it will start charging, if not you can try with another charger. if it doesn't charge even with another charger, at this time i will say for sure that the phone charge connector is faulty and needs a repair.
Best Regards,
