Question about HP iPAQ H5450 Pocket PC

My H5450 won't charge!

Could someone please help me with this frustrating problem? My 5450 is dead and I'm trying to revive it, in fact I'm thinking about CPRing right out the damn window!!! Last week it died and I couldn't recharge it. While on the cradle I noticed it didn't show the charge light flashing. I tried doing a hard reset over the next couple of days with no luck! I figured, because it is about 3 years old, I thought it was the battery, so I bought a new one&.. Hey it worked! But I noticed the charge light still wasn't going. Now I'll mention here the unit could synch ok but didn't charge. The following morning the battery was dead flat. Now I have 2 batteries and a PDA that doesn't work. I spoke to the HP rep who referred me to take it to an HP service centre&.. After ringing the service centre, they told me it was the AC power cable&. Well after going to 5 stores to buy one, I find that didnt work either. Now I have a PDA, 2 batteries and a AC power cable that doesnt work!!! Can anybody shed any light on my problem?

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...

What To Do When Your Phone Does Not Turn On

The simplest reason causing a phone not turn on is a dead or drained battery. It happens when the phone gets immersed in water, dropped or allowed to fully drain the battery. The symptom is phone not turning on and not charging the battery. When that happens, make sure first that the battery is not just dead or drained before you send the phone to the service center for repair or before you buy a new battery. You may decide to send it right away only to find out the battery is simply dead/drained or buy a new battery only to find out the phone is dead.

The first thing you can do is borrow a friend’s known good battery similar to yours and try it in your phone. If the phone turns on, you are pretty sure your battery is dead or drained; otherwise, it's time to send it for repair.

When it is verified that the battery is dead or drained or if you don’t have someone to borrow from, try to revive the battery before you buy a new one. You just need a 9-volt battery, a 6-12 volt power supply, or a DC adaptor (6 or 9 volts) and a set of wires.

Connect the set of wires to the terminals of the 9-volt battery, power supply, or DC adaptor whichever is available.

Look for the polarity markings on your battery and connect the other ends of the wires to the battery terminals in the same polarity as the source above. The positive terminal is marked (+) while the negative is marked (-). Do this for 10 to 60 seconds or until the battery gets slightly warm. Do not use this procedure to fully charge the battery.

Insert the revived battery in your phone and charge it until it is fully charged. If the battery works well and does not discharge easily, you don't have to replace it.

In the event that it is not verified whether the phone still turns on or not using a known good battery and the battery is revived but the phone is still not charging the battery, the phone is dead; send it to the service center for repair.

Failing to power up.

Had the same problem: the battery is simply exhausted. Suggest you buy a new battery. A possible solution you might try is to connect it to a charger and make a hard reset (loosing all data and programs stored). Good luck
