Question about Toshiba e830 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Battery is at 60% but it turns off

I am using my e830 now for about 7 days. today i used it with wlan for updating avantgo. the battery had about 59%. during up?date the e830 turned off and i wasnt able to switch it on again. so i plugged in the power supply and started it again, i switched to the battery screen and it showd me 60%, so i unplugged the power cable. after 2 mins the pocket pc turned off again. so i really dont know where the problem is, because 2 days ago i used the e830 at a local hotspot with wifi with about 25% batter. i could turn the device off and on. so is this just a software bug? if yes, its really bad, because i have to trust this battery meter, or is the battery broken?

As far as I know the warranty is valid from purchase date and the best thing that you can do is to contact service partner in your country. The unit will be checked and I am pretty sure that the battery will be changed.

Blackberry curve 8310 fatal error during backup

I would connect the device to a PC and update the OS using Desktop Manager. If you recently installed any application, I would uninstall it as this may cause this type of behavior.

The battery for my imate jam windows mobile 2003 goes off even when the indicator shows 60%

hi thanks for using fixya!!

How many years now is your I-mate? Normally, we need to change batteries every 1 year, especially if we are using much of our PDA. I suggest that you should change for a new battery, but if the problem still comes, better check with your tech guy to see software and hardware status.

Thanks! have a nice day!! don't forget to rate my solution positively.

My Nokia N95 battery discharges in 6 hours.

check WLAN and bluetooth first if it is switched on it will end up in short battery life Secondly

may be ur battery is faulty bcoz sometimes battery life ends in 1 year if charge cycles are enuff it also depends how ur phone OS handles the battery usage i mean how much it needs to standby and work and also the network quality i mean signal strength how hard ur phone has to strive for signals in remote areas or far from towers

pls try this first b4 buying battery

try resetting the phone like this

1) *#7370#, then enter 12345 (This is the default security code unless the user has changedit) and then Yes. The phone then wipes all apps and phonebook contactson the internal memory.

I have a problem with my i-mate jam

It is a general imate Hang up. Some imates just do it for no particular reason like a design flaw. Otherwise you could try an updated ROM version. On one imate I solved there where loose screws inside because of someone tampering with it but I don't think that's the case with yours. Try imate's site for a ROM version upgrade.

Help with Avantgo

You don't really need for it to. You can go to setting on your Axim, then to connections, and use the avant go connection, to connect, and synch with avant go that way. You can synch to avant go that way, with any internet connection. If it's connected to active synch as a guest then you can't synch with active synch also.

I am unsure myself after looking at this Pocket PC software matrix. Today I use AvantGo in my HP Jornada under PPC2000, but it seems it is not installed in the PPC 2002 software according to this matrix. Maybe there is a download you have to do, or settings for your server access you have to make?

Rx3715 battery power trouble

Did you check if the PDA was hot? My battery was totally dead one day when I picked my 3715 up, just to found out it was blistering hot (was turned off) and even the backup battery was empty. Running fine now after hardresetting it, but still...
