I am having the same "battery temperature is too cold" error. I purchased a new battery and allowed it to become "room temperature" and it does the same error. I take it there is no way of fixing this through simply resetting, which I have tried, including a hard reset. Nothing worked. I guess the hardware must be damaged.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

Was it stored in a place that has extreme temperatures? If so, some hardware might have become damaged. Try to let the battery warm up some and then try again. I would also try a hard reset if at all possible and if that still doesn't work probably call up HP and see about a repair.

Charging indicator stays red


Hmmm...is the USB cable plugged in to a powered PC? Could be cable or battery issue. Red light means that the battery is very low on juice. Return it to where you got it from if you can't solve it on your own.

Ipaq hw6500 wont turn on


If the battery was inserted to the unit prior to its storage, it might be the cause. Try charging battery directly in its cradle overnight or use new battery pack. If not then its hardware and/or formware problem. Sometimes electronic gadgets fail to work after prolonged storage due to to capacitor/condenser in its circuitry.

Lying ipaq H5550!


It's a problem with either the memory board or the button board. With my h5550, the bottom buttons started to stop working and eventualy the PPC stoped charging all together. You can find parts for it online. If all the buttons are working fine, then it's most likely the motherboard. Otherwise it should be the button board.

I got the same problem. I even tried to plug the battery to the second battery charging slot, still couldn't get it back to life. But the Ipaq screen lights on with progress bar progress for about 5 seconds, then dead again. I even doubted the battery was toasted.
I gave it a final shot:
1. Remove the battery, and then put it back.
2. While the screen lights on, within 2 seconds, cold reset the unit by press the hole with stylus and push the power button at top in the same time.
In my case, the progress bar will keep going until I see the tap screen instruction and everything back to normal. But it reminds me that the removable battery is totally discharged. So I put it in cradle and I am able to synch it with my PC. Everything seems o.k. while it sits in the cradle, except the charging light won't turn red.
When I remove it from the cradle, it still lights on, battery shows 99% which is healthy. but when I turned it off, it won't start anymore. I have to repeat the above steps to revive it. Sometimes I have to remove the battery and wait for a while and then put it back, so that the screen can light on to give me chance to cold reset.
Conclusion: Maybe need a new battery. I will check Ebay to get one.
Please post if you have other solutions.

If it is blinking red, it means that your battery is having issues. Try replacing the battery and see if it fixes the problem.

IPAQ 2795 freezes during boot up.


I had the same problem. Contacted HP customer service chat, and got the following answer that
solved the problem:
1. Remove the battery for 30 minutes.
2. Insert it again in the iPAQ.
3. Perform a clean reset on the iPAQ and at the same time charge the iPAQ.
To perform a clean reset please follow these steps:
Press and hold the Calendar button, the Power button, and the Messaging button.
While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ.

The problem can also be solved by getting a new battery, and performing the clean reset while charging (using the portable charger, not the cradle).

My H5450 won't charge!


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...
