I have an T-Mobile MDA. I haven't used it for over 6 months, went to charge it last night. plugged in the charger and the blue power light came on, went to menu screen. Left the MDA charging upon returning to it about an hour later the MDA would not turn on. No power light and no sign of any life. What could be the problem? Regards Dave

Wonderful you just saved me throwing away a working charger and possibly the whole phone. Many thanks

Your first bet is to remove the battery and hold down the power button for 10 seconds, then replace the battery and try to turn it on.

Sorry I'm not more familiar with the model of phone you're talking about but this has worked for my old PDA's when they won't power-cycle correctly.

I haven't used this camcorder in a couple of months (bought new in January). When I went to charge it last night, neither the mains charger or USB lead will charge it. Does it just need a new...


The battery should be good if it was bought in January, with that said nothing is nperfect or lasts forever, there are always issues with some things. If all your connections from the charger or USB are good and tight and the cables are good, the either the battery is bad or the plug in on the camera is bad, or the battery nmay be installed incorrectly. That is about all there can be .

Had new batteries and a service 6 months ago. Has now been left standing for a couple of months. I charged it up last night, but nothing. The charger appears to be working, lights working. Any ideas


Yes your batteries have dropped below 9 vlt each and they wont chage using your charger. Yuo must take a car battery charger and charge each battery up to at least 11vlts for your charger to charge! This ought to work if batteries have only been sitting a couple of mths . When using a car charger set charge at 6-10 amps for about 45mins to 1hr then hook up chair charger and you should be ok

My T-Mobile MDA won't turn on or take a charge, battery was low


I had the same problem, but got the idea to "jump start" the battery from Googling the problem. At night, I had turned off my MDA to charge the battery and then in the morning, couldn't revive it. I removed the battery from my MDA, and determined which battery terminal was positive (far end of one side) and negative (far end of the other side) by using a multi-meter. BTW: Battery was still @ 3.5V (okay…battery was still alive, if just barely). Then, I found a 5V DC charger (5W Max output = ~1A) from my bluetooth headset. I used one wire (CAT5E) and connected it to the negative side of the adapter (outer sleeve - again, verified by multi-meter) and another wire to connect to the positive tip of the adapter. I had to strip about 1/2-inch of the insulation off of the wire on the DC adapter side, and about 1/8-inch of the wire on the battery side. Plugged in the 5V DC charger and then I touched the negative wire to the negative battery terminal and held it there, while I touched the positive wire to the positive battery terminal for about 30-45 seconds. Put the battery back in the MDA, started it up, and now it's charging on the regular MDA AC Charger that came with the phone. Problem solved.

T-Mobile MDA won't hold a charge


if you insurance on your phone I recommend using it, I had a MDA for a couple years and had about every problem in the book, but not that one. It sounds like you've done everything possible, the only other thing i could think of is a hard-reset. Anything beyond that would tinkering with the internal hardware.

I think you can get a MDA pretty cheap on ebay these days

Broken USB Port on T-Mobile MDA


My daughter's MDA had the same problem. I just opened the phone and soldered the legs on the corners back to the board. You have to bend the pins on the back of the plug down to make contact with the board, before you solder. Place plug back down and line it up with contacts. If done right should work as normal. Hope that helps
