Question about HP iPAQ RX3100 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Battery question Hi, I just purchased an iPAQ rx3100 just 5 days ago. I was charging it last night as I was working on it, and it did reach full charge. This morning I turned it on and it was dead. Is this typical of the battery life to drain while not in use? Thanks

Re: Battery question

No, that is not typical. What might have happened is this: If there was an appointment reminder in your calendar, it could have woken up the unit and left it on till the battery was dead. There should be settings that will allow you to either disable the waking feature or make the unit turn off after being inactive for a certain amount of time.

I have an HP rz1710 pocket pc. Can't seem to get battery fully charged. It gotten worse over time. After charging overnight or all day, it still shows low battery, then displays the hp IPAQ screen with...


If the unit will work while in the charger, it is most likely the battery has reached the end of its useful life. If this is the original battery, you are quite fortunate it has lasted this long and have taken good care of it because these batteries seldom last more than a two or three years before needing replacement.

IPaq rx3115 working like PC not Pocket PC, need to plugin always


You need to purchase a new removable battery for your RX
The removable batts usually only last about a year (like cell phone batteries).
Although it is showing 100% charge, the battery is not storing enough power to run the ipaq

The rx series uses 2 batteries, one is the removable one u can see/access when u remove the back cover. The other batt is a small round batt which stores the basic info for your system (so you don't lose your data when u swap out the removable battery).

This small (backup) batt is similar to the cmos battery on a laptop or pc.
You cannot easily replace this, as the unit needs to be disassembled to access this batt.
If you are tech-y (and brave), the replacement button batteries are sold on ebay for $9-12

Normally, if your removable batt is bad, you could still use your unit plugged in, and could
remove from AC power without losing data. Not the case if your replaceable batt is exhausted.
When both batteries are bad, you lose everything when u remove unit from AC power.

My workaround without having to disassemble unit:
Purchase and fully charge new removable batt (They have huge capacity ones available for like $15 - better than the original !).
Load up all your programs & settings the way you like.
Perform full backup to SD card (& also on PC via active sync - to be safe)
Now the only time you should lose your data (like hard reset) is if you allow the battery
to completely drain, in which case you can restore your backup.
If you purchase 2 removable batts, you can easily swapout without losing data if you
use the usb charge cable & leave ipaq plugged in while you change battery

Hope this helps

HP-iPaq 2215 battery replacement


Hi, Jim--
When you take the battery out of an IPAQ you're performing a hard reset. I've got 4 different IPAQs and it does the same thing on all of them.
My solution was to back the IPAQ up using the internal backup program (back up to IPAQ storage) and then replace the battery, then restore the last backup.
Saved me a heck of a lot of time. It's been hard to remember to back up everytime I add a program or change data majorly, but it's probably the best thing to do.

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).

Just "turned off"....


Was it charging over the weekend? If not, try to recharge the device again... Those devices would on occasion drain the batter overnight -- didn't happen all the time and was apparently caused by unusual software/applications combinations... The battery could be going bad again as well.

Battery Problem


Unfortunately, I think you have a bigger problem.

Ideas:

1. In the interest of not costing you extra money, wait a few days to see if anyone has any last-ditch ideas.

2. Your battery is probably completely dead. Try purchasing a new one (Amazon.com is good).

DO NOT THROW AWAY THE OLD BATTERY!!! If the new battery still does not work, the old one has probably been shorted by the charger, but it might not have been, and you will now have two working batteries.

3. If that doesn't work, then like I said, you probably have a short in your charger. Refer to

For the solution.


You can try these solutions in either order, but this is the order i suggest.

Happy fixing!
