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?

Re: 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...

Can't log on


where you able to perform the reset? if you wheren't then use a small pin or a needle to press the reset button.

if it sitll doesn't help you may have to perform a hard reset, it should fix the problem but you will lose all data stored in the memory, but everything on a storage card or safe storage / permanent storage will stay.

Low Battery DATA Lose - HP iPAQ Model h5450 Packet PC


The h5450 comes with what HP calls a backup battery. It is built into the device and not accessible by the user. However, the backup battery has only enough juice to power the Pocket PC for a few minutes while you change main batteries. Don't expect it to keep your RAM data alive if the main battery runs out.

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
