In this model of ipaq the battery come inbuilt which means it is not enduser replaceable so cannot place an order to the battery so call HP and send the unit in for service. All the best :-)

I have the IPAQ pocket pc 3765 and I was replacing battery but when I opened I saw the battery door out of its place but I do not know where is located then I can not to finish my work. Can you describe...

Welcome to Fixya

As far as i can remember, there are no battery door for ipaq. Once the device opens, gently pry out the original battery. This one should come right off (it is only stuck using some double sided tape). All you need to do is to replace the double adhesive tape if you are going to replace the battery then close the unit. Tip: Use an old credit card or something that won't damage the case to gently lift the battery out.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Replacement battery installed & still won't charge for iPaq 3600

he is correct, it needs service.
this product has no support now, why not retire it like 99.9% have.
its soldered in not welded, using toxic, lead/tin solder.
nobody uses these now, they all use Cell phones, smart now.
ask here, but see the ***** thing there, the OOPS

everyone else left the 20th centry now;. it seems..

Data missing - Ipaq model HP5555 - did not do hard reset


I'm sorry but the HP Ipaq 55xx series store data on a volatile ram based memory. Unlike a nand flash (like usb sticks, memory cards etc) this memory will hold data only as long as it's powered on. If your main battery gets empty you should still be able to retain your files for some 10-20hrs with the backup battery (if it's ok itself and not depleted). After this time the power to the ram memory is cut off and all data is lost.
The problem you face is somewhat related to that backup battery, as it appears it's unable to do it's job and maintain the power to the ram memory at least some 10 hrs. You should have that battery replaced.

There is no way to recover the data from the ram memory as it is stored as an electric charge over some memory cells in the ram chips. When there is no power, these charges dissipate and the pattern is lost.

I'm sorry for having to give the bad news.

I had the same problem with my iPAQ H3800. I bought a replacement battery on eBay for £7.49 and now it's fine.

This IPAQ will not support 3rd party battery manufacturers. Ensure you are using an original HP battery. You usually can use the battery one time--but when the charge runs out, so does your luck.

Most of the time you will get an on-screen warning that the battery will not be able to charge when you use a 3rd party battery. If you are using an original, you might need a new battery--they do wear out after time--too-old batteries no longer hold a charge.

Most iPaqs use a small AC Adapter This model will still need an AC Adapter, because it does not draw any current from USB to charge.
