Question about HP Jornada 720 Pocket PC

PPc turns on every few minutes, eats batteries

Hi, I've owned a 720 for about a year now and for the last 2 or 3 months it has began powering itself on every few minutes. I have checked every program that has 'wake up' control for alarams,etc and none seem to causing it. I'm using a 3com wireless LAN card, and the unit does this even when the card is not plugged in, so it's not a case of trying to refresh a DHCP lease either. I was told by HP to do a hard reset and re-install everything, but I have quite a few programs to re-install. Any iseas before I have to resort to this?

Re: PPc turns on every few minutes, eats batteries

Do you have anything in your startup folder that is running that could cause your computer to turn on? Or can you remember installing any new software at the time you started having this problem? If you did install some new software try uninstalling it and see if the problem goes away. Good luck.

My phone keeps turning off even when the batteries full. and then takes a few tries to turn back on.


had the same problem since New Year. Bought a replacement battery from eBay last week and now its back to normal. What ruined my last battery was using an in-car charger. Only ever use the wall charger, and discharge the battery completely at least once a month to keep in good condition.

The battery life of my ku990 is abnormal


The two main causes of battery life loss that no one thinks of are:

backlight settings (if you don't really need the backlight to stay on for 60 seconds after the last button press, lower it. this is a huge waste of battery life and it is easily changed in the settings menu of nearly every phone i have seen)

poor signal areas (when you have low signal, you phone wastes its battery life searching for acquirable signal. if it is unable to locate the signal, it will continue to search. this search uses up your battery life quite rapidly)

Phone often turns itself off then comes back on again - like its resetting itself. This happens a few times everyday and is annoying


Hello.

I would suggest removing and reinserting the battery.

If the problem is not resolved, replace the battery.

If the phone is still under warranty, contact your service provider.

Hope this helps.

2)Now open ur dead battery, remove the sticker slowly, u wil get the polythene bag carrying the charge sheets
.
3)Please note that dont not disturb this polythene bag... (cutting, drilling or pinning), else it starts burning.

4)U will see a circuit above the polyhthene bag having two poles (+ve n -ve) just cut the poles of bag from the circuit and keep the bag aside

5)Now do the same procedure with new batt and remove the polythene bag.. and soilder with
the dead battery circuit. (check the +ve n -ve by multimeter)

Hp rx1950 battery life.


I have the same problem, after I did the hard reset and installed no programs, this power problem disappeared. But once i installed any programs, PDA battery life became no longer than 2 days, which is strange.

Lying ipaq H5550!


It's a problem with either the memory board or the button board. With my h5550, the bottom buttons started to stop working and eventualy the PPC stoped charging all together. You can find parts for it online. If all the buttons are working fine, then it's most likely the motherboard. Otherwise it should be the button board.

Battery not holding a charge, maybe...


The only thing close that I can recommend is doing an in cradle reset. Palms site says it only works on certain models, but hey it's worth a shot.

Discharging fast


Sounds like your battery has had it mate - grab yourself a new generic, see if that fixes the problem, otherwise try a complete software reinstall
