Question about HP iPAQ RX3115 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Battery draining So, I'm connected to USB. And when I go to turn it on, nothing. I need to plug it into the computer to get it to recharge. Funny part is, I bought one for my wife too, and hers does the same thing. What is up???? Why don't these stupid things just work. How do I get the battery to drain while hooked up to USB, which should be charging it like it does all the other devices I hook up to it! Thanks for any info,

Could your computer be using unpowered USB? Some machines and hubs have unpowered ports. Check the Right-click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager, Universal Serial Bus Controllers, and find the listed hub which has the iPAQ connected to it. How much power is it drawing, and is the hub self-powered? (look at the power tab after double-clicking the hub) Also, is USB charging turned on? It's in the Power section of the Settings under the "USB Charging" tab.

I lost my fujifilm finepix jx 400 battary charger and i want to use my usb cable to charge it is it possible i plug it but it seems doesn't charge


The JX-400 is a camera, not a battery charger. Connecting it to a computer's USB port simply drains the battery faster since the camera has to expend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

One source for a battery charger is http://www.overstock.com/Electronics/BasAcc-Battery-Charger-Set-for-NP-45-Fuji-FinePix-S610-J110-J150W/7124327/product.html?searchidx=3

Can't turn on my mp3 player. I have tried to hold the volume buttom but it does not turn on at all.


what type of mp3 player ?

Charge your MP3 player.

The battery might just be dead, in which case letting it charge for a few hours corrects the problem.


Plug the USB data cable into the USB port on the MP3 player and insert the other end into one of the USB ports on your computer.


In a moment, the computer states that it has detected the removable device.

Sometimes the MP3 player needs to update itself, and it can only do so while connected to a computer.


When the MP3 player detects the computer, it attempts to connect to the Internet and retrieve any system updates available for the device.

Replace the battery.


The battery is usually the first part of the MP3 player to go (especially after excessive use). Although you can manually change the battery on most MP3 players, you need to send your


Apple products (iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone) into the company so they can change the battery for you.


Purchase a new MP3 player.

If your MP3 player has received any sort ofwater damage, it is not going to turn on at all and there is nothing you can do to fix the issue.


hope this helps

The C1033 does NOT charge batteries. By plugging it into the computer you've actually drained the batteries faster since the camera has to spend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). Put in a fresh set of batteries, and next time don't leave it connected to your computer.

I plugged my camera into my computer with the usb cord and its completely died. its not charging what do i do????


The camera does not charge via the USB connection. Connecting the camera to the computer drains the battery faster, as the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). To charge the battery, take it out of the camera, put it into the supplied charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

My nikon coolpix S220 wont charge. I had to buy another USB connector because my son lost his and it does not seem to recognize the camera at all and will not charge


The camera does not contain any charging circuitry and will not charge the battery when connected via the USB cable. In fact connecting via USB actually drains the battery faster because the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

The camera comes with a separate MH-63 charger. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet. Once the battery is charged, you can put it into the camera and try connecting it to the computer.

Better yet, don't connect it to the computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

The camera will not charge through the USB. In fact connecting the camera to a computer drains the battery faster, since the camera has to expend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). See page 10 of this manual.

MY CAMERA DOES NOT TURN ON AND IT WAS WORKING PERFECTLY FINE ONE DAY AND I LEFT IT ON THE USB CORD ON MY COMPUTER AND IT DOES NOT WANT TO TURN ON WHY IS THAT ?


If you left the camera turned on all night, most likely you've drained the batteries. The camera does not include any charging circuitry, and does not charge the batteries via the USB connection. In fact, connecting the camera actually drains the batteries faster, since the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if it's only to say that it has nothing to say).

The battery is dead but I need to upload photos and I don't have the charger. When I plug it into the computer it turns on but it won't let me get my photos and says battery is exhausted.


The S210 doesn't charge via via the USB. In fact, connecting via the USB actually drains the battery faster. If you want to upload your pictures, you either have to charge the battery or take the memory card out of the camera and put it into a card reader connected to the computer.

Ipod won't turn on


It may be that the battery has drained to such a low level that it is only barely charged. What I would do is leave it for a couple of hours charging using the apple usb cable supplied (if you have still got it) and also if you are using a usb hub plug it directly in the computer usb port. Hope this helps, if not send me a comment.

Motorola A1200 Problem


Easy step by step solution!

Hey guys had the same, Try this solution before buying a new battery/charging cable (it might not be the problem):

I did these steps after playing around with it for awhile and am at the stage where my phone turns on fully and says "Battery Charging" when plugged into the charger. It is now charging normally again... Finally! (I had the flashing moto logo too when charger plugged in) I believe this problem occurs because the battery is completely drained and is unable to turn on to charge bcuz the phone needs to be on to be charged, happened to me because i left it in a jacket pocket and forgot about it for weeks. Anyways...

1. You need a USB data cable for it, it should have come with the phone, if not than any USB data cable that fits the phone's charging slot should work (charge cable for the ps3 controller will work or maybe a cable from a digital camera with the same end)

2. Connect the phone to your computer via the USB cable and a USB port that works. Make sure it's plugged in and leave it (even if nothing happens and the screen on the phone is still blank). Although the screen is black, the phone is still charging via your computer (it's just too low on battery to produce the light on the display screen to load up your phone).

3. This might take anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes so be patient and leave it plugged in, beats buying a battery of charger with your money for something that can be solved for free.

4. At some point your computer will make the usual processing noises signalling that it is finally recognizing the phone as a usb device and shortly after your ming's screen will turn on stating that the battery is charging. Success! One of two things will happen, if you have previously installed the ming's drivers to your pc it will just recognize the phone. If you are like me and do not have the drivers installed, you may choose to do so via the cd that came with the phone or just not do it at all.

5. If you want to just charge it via the computer then congrats, your job is done, just leave it plugged in and wait until it is fully charged. If you wish to switch to your regular outlet charger please proceed to step 6.

6. At this point drivers installed or not, either safely remove device from the computer or just unplugg it. Now return your phone to your usual outlet charger making sure its connected. When plugged in you'll notice the moto logo appear (no longer flashing). After about 5 seconds that logo will disappear. At this time flip open the phone. The usual turn on sequence will play out and it will now load up with the battery charging screen similar to the screen from when it was plugged into the computer. Congratulations your phone should be back to normal now.

NOTE: This charge will take longer than your normal charging time but that's just for this time since your battery is super low it will be back to normal after that. Also if this did not work for your phone then now is the time to see if the charger/phone/battery is the problem.

So I hope this helps you out and eases your state of panic. I hope I saved you guys some money with this solution and that your mings are up and running again. I know i was pretty content when the problem was fixed. Please reply with any comments, questions or concerns you may have. Enjoy your once again working mings.
