I got a used ipaq 1910. bought a new battery and the docking station+charger (for 1910) because the old ones were dead. now the device turns on but does not charge the battery and activesync can't find it when connected to the P.C. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong or if the device has a malfunction.

I suggest to you to buy a new battery for you HP iPAQ H4150 Pocket PC and see if that charger will charge it up. If the new battery does charge then the problem was with the old battery.
If it doesn't charge up on the new battery then, your problem lies with the battery charger. You should check that the voltage of the battery charger is compatible to charge the voltage of the battery.
If you purchase a new battery, they usually come with directions and special tools to change the battery. I had the same issue with 2 of mine when I got them at a used electronics store. IF it is the battery that is not working, then replacing it is easy, and you can get a replacement at your local Battery-Plus store.
In my case, one was fixed by a new battery, the other was not, and I actually had to press pretty hard in the cradle to get the second one to work. It never worked out of the cradle, so I gave that one to a neighbor kid to tear apart and see if he could get it working. (I got them for $15, so no big loss.)
There are some known issues with the included charging equipment. Personally, I ordered a relatively inexpensive charger from Amazon.com that works wonderfully. All you really need is a device that turns a standard wall plug into a USB charger. You can then plug your base that the ipaq stands on into that and it should begin charging. The old battery is probably dead (mine was), but try to charge it anyway.
Note: The actual cord that came with my charger DID NOT WORK. It is sitting in a box somewhere, and if its the same thing I had (it probably is), then you just need the wall-to-USB converter.
How to correct iPAQ 5450, 5455, 5550, 5555 battery charging problems / dead unit syndrome.
The iPAQ 54xx or 55xx will not power on if the batteries charge is lower than 3.2 Volts, if your battery charge falls below the 3.2 volts level your unit will not turn on, you need to plug the iPAQ into a cradle or AC charge adaptor. Note the charging light on the iPAQ will not flash at all (normally flashes orange) until the battery charge has reached a minimum charge level of 3.2 volts. You then need to perform a normal reset, then the unit should switch on normally.
HP Procedure is as follows:
To charge and reset the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400:
i) Connect the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 to an A/C power supply. ii) Charge the battery to the minimum level of 3.2 Volts. This will take 5 to 30 minutes depending on the current charge level. iii) Perform a normal reset. iv) Power on the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400
It is recommended that you keep the iPAQ Pocket PC connected to the Universal Cradle or Cable when it is not in use.
When you charge up your iPaq, do you use the cradle, or do you use the AC-adapter with the little iPaq power converter that came with the iPaq?
Try both, and see if it charges up your pda.
Try and borrow an iPaq car-charger and see if it charges up that way (the ones that do not need the iPaq power converter).
If you are lucky enough to power up the iPaq even for 2 minutes, enable USB fast charging in the SETTING -> BATTERY. Your USB-data-cable or cradle will then be able to charge it up that way...
