iPAQ won't turn on
If you pressed the "turn on" switch, which is located above the right of the screen, try pressing it again. Hold it for a second and then let go.
If that doesn't work, check the battery. Chances are that the battery may have to be charged. Plug it into the charging station. It may not turn on right away if the battery is completely empty, but you will be able to tell that it's working if you see lights come on once you plug the device into the charger. If there are no lights, chances are that the battery is bad. The battery may have to be replaced. To do that, the device will have to be taken apart.
If you tried everything and the device is still not working, then it may be the motherboard that will have to be replaced.
