HP iPaq Rx3115 ...Please Help..

I've been doing a lot of research on PDa's because I'm planning to purchase one soon. I found out tthat my best choice would have to be the Rx3115 from HP..it fits my budget and my needs. But I have only one concern. It has an expansion slot, and Id like to put in a 1GB card. This is enough to store a feature film, but my concern was if the machine is powerful enough to play a full movie without having to buffer or jump. If anyone has an answer please help me out. Thanks.

Re: HP iPaq Rx3115 ...Please Help..

I have an rx3115, and iv encoded many movies to WMA at 300kbps, which is good quality video, just the sound isnt so great, but other than that, they play fine, so do mpegs. and thats off the sd card, this ppc is more than powerful enough for mpeg movies and wmv movies. its a great little device, you wont be sorry if you get it, plus the wifi is great for internet and sending files.

It depends what quality you need. If you need top quality you will have to go for something else like a dell axim x50v. This PDA should be ok for watching a movie as long as it is encoded properly, at a low resolution that is.

Want to hook up an external mic to a HP iPAQ


It's not possible unless to modify your PDA.

It's necessary to open it, and find a place to place a microphone connector and modigy the mainboard to accept it.

Also, it is necessary to modify the external microphone to match the impendance.

Bottom line, it's possible but requires a person for it with some electronics technical skills.

Ipaq 3115 screen


You need to open your PDA and check for a false contact between the connectors of the LCD screen and the main board.

Other cause may be that the LCD screen flat ribbon cable is defective.

Either problem requires to open the PDA to check it.

If you have experience in opening electronic devices then you can try it. Otherwise, I do recommend you to have a experienced technician in checking your PDA.

IPAQ rx3115 continuously, "screen alignment",


If I understand correctly your problem, the touch screen of your PDA is not working.

Well, this is a common IPAQ failure. When happens, the only options to repair it are:

1. Soft reset of the PDA. If still does not work, then go to next step.

2. Replace the top digitizer glass.

It requires a very skillful person to do it. If you have not experience with fixing electronic devices, then I do suggest you to send it to repair.

Besides that is necessary to open it, you will require a soldering iron, and desolder the digitizer part and remove it from the LCD screen, which if is not done properly with the right tools, it's easy to damage the LCD screen assembly.

Also, if it's not opened right, is possible to damage permanently the mainboard if is bent or warped.

Also, even though there are a lot of cheap digitizer replacement parts on-line (mainly from China), they have a compatibility issue that prevents to use them in the RX3115 (or RX3715) PDAs.

I have nothing against Chinese manufactured parts, but after buy around 10 digitizers in the last couple of years for different Ipaq PDAs, I found out that only 3 worked fine, so I know what I am talking about.

Can't get dynamic ip address


What about your desktop pc? Have you checked the services on it to make sure it is not broadcasting DHCP? Also, think about switching over to Stealth Mode (Non-broadcast SSID) instead of MAC filtering. MAC filtering can be cummbersome and if it is just you, then do away with it.
