IPaq rx3115 screen unresponsive

My rx3115 screen will not respond to touch. Can the screen go bad or is it possible that a driver is messed up. I did soft resets with no luck. I did a hard reset and got it to the tap screen to continue screen and since it does not respond to touch I get stuck right there.

I have a back up of all the data, but this is a life line with all of my dates and contacts.

Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem. After a hard reset, instead of going to the stylus tap calibration screen, it goes to a 'tap' to continue, with no response.

I need a hard reset for my hp ipaq rx3115


Look at the very bottom of your iPAQ. Screen should be facing up. To the far left of the charger port there is a small black circle. Use a ball point pen, or other small diameter object, and insert the tip into the black hole to firmly but gently "tap" the button that is inset in the hole. This should activate a hard reset. Do not touch or otherwise mess with any buttons while the reset is in progress. Depending on what is loaded on your iPAQ this could take a few minutes.

Ipaq rx-3115 stops at align screen after reset


This happened to me and i got so mad that i broke the screen. But that was a good idea because then i got a new screen and now it works fine. Just get another screen and it should work fine. or you can just get the digitizer part and swap out your LCD parts.

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.

Best regards,

Ipaq rx3115 frozen


Red LED light means a major problem at the charging of the battery.

You have several options to repair it:

1. Leave several hours the PDA with not battery and unplugged from the AC power adapter, then put the battery and leave charging it.

It's more likely that the red light will appears again, but leave plugged it. Sometimes will start charging and blinking with orange color after 30 minutes or so. After that, it will work normally.

2. Use other good working battery to test it.

3. If the above two steps fail, then there is a good chance that the mainboard has a problem, and needs to be fixed or replaced.

Best regards,

IPaq won 't respond to screen calibration.


So far no fixes. It's just been collecting dust. I think it's a screen response issue, and will probably cost more to fix than to replace (at least for me) in my situation. I'm thinking iPhone....

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.

IPAQ rx3115 would not bypass the screen aligning


I experienced the same problem with my rx3115 after having it for 3 days. It is working again, fortunately. I removed the battery from the device and left it alone for 24 hours. I then reinstalled the battery and connected the charger. When it powered up, it went through the initialization process in the same way that it did when I first used it. I hope this helps you out with your iPAQ.
