Question about HP iPAQ RX3715 Pocket PC
I left my fully charged Ipaq 3715 in my car for two weeks and the temprature went tyo -6 below freezing, its now dead and will not charge or turn on, any ideas anyone?
Just for the knoledgebase. Ipaq 3715 is one of the fewer pda's that have a built in ac power only circuitry. It means it can power on without battery, only from AC, as long as the battery lid is closed. So in a case like this you may want to check if the pda does that. If not, there is a hardware fault. Most rx3715 (also most RX series) are known to have a particular sensibility to cold. In fact some of them may display a message "Too cold" or symilar. This happens when placed in cold environments, and it's symptoms are battery permanent failure, internal inverter circuitry failure (most likely your case), firmware corruption (this is also very possible) or the failure of the screen's digitalizer controller (on the main board not the actual display). Hope this helps in the future.

Its possible (but not likely) that when you took it into a warm room condensation built up inside it. Try removing the battery, memory cards and letting it sit in a warm, dry environment for a few days and try again. If nothing changes I suspect that a component has failed, but -6F is still within the operational range of commercial electronics. If your device is still in warranty then I would call HP up and ask for a warranty replacement. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate this posting.
