Question about HP iPAQ H5555 Pocket PC
Dear Adib, Before han ding over the unit to repairshop, just try with another battery of the same model as yours (if you know someone who has one). This will ensure that real problem lies for sure with either a battery / or a hardware. Many a times an expiring battery behaves in erraneous way where it shows fully charged within few minutes and goes kaput the moment you connect to the hardware or the hardware is switched on.

It may say it is fully charged but I?ll bet that?s not the case. I?ve only had one of my iPAQs die of a battery that won?t hold a charge and what you describe is exactly what it wound up doing, eventually. The batteries aren?t too expensive and if you have the skills and patience you can replace it yourself. Here is a link to a site that sells the replacement batteries and the instructions how to do it: http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GHT&Category_Code=BATT&Affiliate=google
