    I reckon this is due to your battery being completely drained during storage. I have two PDA's one a 3000 series and my latest one ( for R & D purposes if you think I am rich or greedy!!).

    I had not used my 3000 series one for some time and wanted to use it again and I found it would not boot up. Like you, I soft and hard booted it to no avail. One thing I tried, but be very careful, is take the battery out and look very carefully along its edge and you will see a very minute micro switch I pushed this in very gently and let go and then replaced the battery and then recharged. During the charging it told me that I had to let the battery recalibrate itself, so let it run its course. I then got a message saying the battery was recalibrated and after that I had no problems.

    The pushing of the micro switch may be coincidental but it did the trick for mine.

    Tell me how you got on.
