Question about HP iPAQ RX3115 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Dropped PDA I dropped my PDA and now I can just barely see the screen.  The screen did not crack but their appears to be bleeding into the screen and black lines running vertically on the screen.  Would anyone know if this is the motherboard where maybe the video card is integrated or could it be the digitizer?  Any help would be appreciated; such as somewhere to send it for repairs.  Thanks for responding.

Re: Dropped PDA

You don't have to crack the screen if it is LCD. The "bleeding into the screen" and "black lines" could be symptoms of leaking liquid from the damage/impact of being dropped. Where you send it for repairs would depend on the manufacturer, the store you bought it from, and if you have a service plan or not.

Let us know what the situation is.

If I dropped my phone, and messed up the screen,

The LCD is cracked and needs to be replaced. A warranty is not going to cover it because it's clearly impact damage (though you can try). The LCD is hard to find and quite expensive.

Yes, it sure can, I would estimate it about 180-230's,

I dropped my palm zire 72 the screen is damaged can it be repaire

How much it will cost to repair it?

It's hard to answer it if a proper diagnostics has not been done on it to confirm what is working, and what is not.

It could be in the range of $50.00 to $200.00, depending of what is broken.

I am not telling you that somebody will take you for a ride with your PDA, but if multiple parts are broken, then will be necessary to replace them.

In the other hand, if only a connection is loose because of the drop, then no parts will be needed.

You can check different options to have a diagnostics p[erformed on your pda, and then make the decision if you want it repaired.

Such PDAs are sold in working conditions in Ebay in the range of $90.00 - $120.00.

I do recommend you to look for a technician service where the diagnoctics has a flat fee, and where is garanteed that a complete diagnostics and full quote will be given to you prior to perform the repair, and then compare such quote to the price of buy an used one.

Ive got a pda2k... my touch screen is'nt working......

hello there!

thanks for using

Sorry about what happened to your I-mate PDA.

If have already white strip on the screen, and some colour pigments are presently shown. You should not panic. Just bring your pda to the service center, i had mine fixed as well, i have the i-mate jama 101, when i dropped it, I couldn't see anything but bright light. and the screen was not responding. but anyhow, lets hope that the LCD was not damaged, what you can do, just remove the battery, and let your technician check it carefully. if you still have the warranty, it would be perfect.

good luck!

Dropped PDA

First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.
