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

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.

After fully charged battery power lasted about 20 minutes.

Since it's brand new, return it. You didn't say what type of tablet it is, but they should last for many hours on a charge.

1989 Toyota, battery was dead two days ago, took it to a garage they put a new battery in and sent it out the door. Drove it a few times no problems. Last night driving home, engine light came on...

I'd take it to any good parts store (autozone, advance, etc..) and have them do a FREE charging system test and load test your battery. Almost sounds like your alternator is not charging or starting to go bad (not charging at full capacity)

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.

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.
