Question about Uniden Computers & Internet
SOURCE: BT Problem Battery/Power Problem
In my opinion it is always very risky to buy some second hand unit because you can not be sure if every hardware component works properly. The best solution for you is to contact service partner and let them check the PDA. It is also possible that power supply electronic has some malfunction

Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

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.
