Compaq Ipaq 3600 (Why won't it turn on without the adapter?)

by el sol / July 19, 2004 3:33 PM PDT


My friend let me have his Compaq Ipaq 3600 and he said that it worked he just hasn't used it in a while and the power button was jammed. Well I think I unjammed the button and connected it to the power adapter so that it could get charged then I turned it on and everything worked. The thing is that when I take it off the power supply it turns off. I left it charging for 4 hours or so and it continues to do the same thing. Once off the supply it won't turn on even after continuing to press the power button. What's going on??? PLease help.

Man this sucks I've been trying to make it work and it just doesn't seem to be working. I don't get it, why does it work on power supply but not on its own away from the supply. Help.

Sadly, there was a fault in the charging circuit and ther's only one thing they do with such faults.

Hope its under warranty.
