Hi, I have a ipaq hw6515d for some time. sudenly the loudspeaker stoped working. It works with phones. even with hard reset the problem presists. can it be hardware? loudspeaker damadged?
thankyou and sorry for my English.
Hi,i had the same problem,try to reconnect the earphones from HP and turn the volume to full ( note,there is a little wheel on the HP earphones for some reason if you turn it your pda turns mude),at least this was the solution for mi problem and it worked again.
This appears to be common with the 6515. You will either have to get your headphone jack replaced, or you can try what finally worked for me. Insert and remove your headphone jack as many times as necessary to get the internal connector in the jack to work properly.
It took me about a dozen tries, doing it both fast and slowly.

follow instructions to step 8 (with thanks to Anny for posting it) http://www.annystudio.com/misc/ipaq4700/ With the motherboard removed, you will see the back of the speaker pictured in step 10. I seem to recall that the 'official' replacement loudspeaker (17 UKPounds) looked identical to one taken out of an old Nokia mobile telephone I had lying around. I didn't try it - so I don't know if it would work but the DC resistance across the terminals were about the same. The loudspeaker in the hx4700 is notoriously unreliable and can apparently be damaged by some software titles. I recall that HP published a firmware patch some years ago. I have also found that it is easy to miss the stylus receptical in the top of the device and it is possible to inadvertantly jam the stylus into the earphone socket. This can cause damage to the switch contacts in the jack socket that disconnects the loudspeaker when headphones are used giving the false impression that the loudspeaker itself has failed. I checked this with a multimeter before changing the speaker. In my case the contacts were OK but I doubt that I would have been able to repair the switch contacts without some serious soldering iron weilding. A final note. The ribbon connector for the screen is VERY fragile. Be ultra careful when removing it. Hope it helps. Steve
When I call out i can't be heard by the person am calling. or when i playback music there is no sound. but when i recieve a call It it rings, then nothing can be heard when i pick up the call. please help.
Go to the HP.com site and get the latest firmware upgrade for your IPAQ. If you already have the latest firmware then you can probably try a hard reset which will wipe out all your files then see if it performs better from a factory reset. If it doesnt improve then theres nothing much you can do but send it to the professionals for servicing or get a new phone.
The ipaq 6515 has a microswitch that will turn off the pda if the battery cover is removed. When you remove the cover and try to turn it on even with the external power supply plugged in, the red led will light up.
Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not, Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not, Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
Sounds like it might be time to test things in a vanilla fresh setup..........
-Backup your system via iPAQ backup to an SD card (or ipaq file store if you have room)
Warning, following will delete all main memory and set back to factory default!
-do a hard reset (hold in power and reset for 20 seconds)
-Test programs again, see if it acts the same.
You can then restore your setup via iPAQ backup again if needed.
You can also poke around the following site for suggestions on tested task managers and today screen apps. (I use HandySwitcher)
