No power to Ipaq 3715

After leaving mu Ipaq 3715 for 1 week it would not power up. I thought it may be the battery so I purchased a replacement with no success. The charging light does not light uo when it is in it's cradle but the battery does charge as it becomes warm. I have tried a hard joy... also have left battery out for 12 hours and charged on mains for 24 hours...all with out success.....just dead. nothing happening at all. It was working fine before I went away....The battery door is not damaged and the trip switch inside the battery cover is pressed.. Many thanks Jason

HP Ipaq does not turn on

Ufortunately, the battery is likely the culprit.
You can try removing the battery overnight, then leave on charger for at least 12 hours.

These batteries generally require replacement every 1-3 years. They deteriorate quite rapidly if left unused/uncharged for extended periods of time (like a year!)

How do you reset it to factory settings

To perform a soft-reset (if the device has locked), briefly insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715
To perform a hard reset (losing all data!), insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715 while holding down the far left and far right of the four main buttons. Information in the iPAQ File Store will not be lost, but data on the Internal memory will be wiped.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hopefully you can do a warranty repair, I'm pretty sure the main board is damaged since a hard reset should have taken you back to the factory defaults.

IPAQ Rx 3715 Internet settings~ conectivity problem

I have a few thoughts.

Occasionally, for no apparent reason, the ipaq will "forget" your password. Try re-entering it.

The other option is to try a program called Kasuei Hitchhiker. It is a more powerful and easier to understand interface than the normal ipaq one. you can download it here.

Hope it goes well! I'll try again if this does not work!

Ipaq totally dead after leaving it in my car for two weeks, temperature down to -6C

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.

Rx3715 battery power trouble

Did you check if the PDA was hot? My battery was totally dead one day when I picked my 3715 up, just to found out it was blistering hot (was turned off) and even the backup battery was empty. Running fine now after hardresetting it, but still...
