Question about HP iPAQ RX3115 Pocket PC

1 Answer

IPaq rx3115 I used my IPaq rx3115 on Wednesday and it worked just fine. I turned it off, put it in its sleeve, and put it down for the night. I did get a message telling me that the battery needed to be charged soon, so I didn't use it for long. The next morning, I attempted to turn the unit on and absolutely nothing happened. Dead. Completely. I plugged it in to the USB cable to charge while I was at work, and upon returning, tried it again. Nothing. It is completely dead. I can't turn it on to do a soft or hard reset. Do I now own a small, expensive doorstop?

Re: IPaq rx3115

I had a similar experience. My device would not charge via the usb charger so I connected it to my wall charger and it charged successfully.

Ipaq rx3115

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 RX3715 (or RX3115) 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.

Best regards,

HP rx3115 hard reset

Had the same problem with my hp rx3115 . Worked fine, then the next day dead. power button, lower buttons, or outter reset button didn't work to turn it on. Okay so, i thought it just needed to recharge. Used computer cable for active synchronizing that also recharges, still dead. Then cable just for recharging. Finally comes on. Charged it all the way up, synchronized it, unplugged it, few minutes......dead. The battery is no good.

Lost sound

So there's another icon at top of Today screen - a loudspeaker icon - tap on that and make sure it's not muted or all the way down.

Ipaq rx3115 doesnt turn on!

I am guessing that you have made sure that it is fully charged. If it is, since you have only had it a week I would try a hard reset. I don't know if the 3115 has them but check to make sure that any battery door lock switches are locked.

IPAQ RX3115 Crash

I contacted HP on-line chat and after doing a few tests they advised me to exchange it for another one with the dealer. My second one is working great. I think it might be a Li-Poly battery issue as I deal with similar issues in my business using them.
