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.

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.

I dropped the phone getting in to my car and the screen is cracked what should i do


Well, there is not much that you can do, unfortunately.
First, do you still have a guarantee for the cell? If yes, you can try reasoning with them, saying that it is a mechanical damage but you barely even dropped it and it cracked and so on.
If not ... well, older phones are fairly cheap ( sometimes ) to fix, you can try going to the service shop listed on your expired guarantee and see how much would the replacement cost.
If the phone is relatively new touchscreen cell, and you don't have a guarante,, maybe new cell is the best option :(

Touch screen is misaligned. When you select an item, it chooses the item to the left by 1-2 spaces. There doesn't appear to be an alignment utility like on my PDA, at least I haven't found one. TomTom...

this is a common problem in PDA's. the mis alignment is because of faulty circuitry or misfitted screen.
this can be rectified easily, there may not be a reset specifically for the screen , but when you flush the software platform or reset it or re-install it, this will be rectified. if the problem is because of any abuse (rough handling, impact, dropped on floor) it is better to change the PDA.

Dark screen on zen v plus

Was the device dropped or damanged? The most common problem is a cracked screen. The crack is on the back so you can't see it. The screen will need to be replaced.

I have dropped my SAMSUNG D1070 PINK digital camera. The screen is now white with a black mark inside it and appears to have a crack inside it...Can this be fixed?? I only got the camera at christmas....

Dear lauren_holt,

I'm so sorry to hear that your Pink Samsung D1070 Digital Camera was dropped and appears to be cracked and now has a screen that is white with a black mark!
This doesn't sound good!
Have you tried taking the battery out (make sure you leave it out for a least 1 minute) then replacing it (sometimes overnight or 24 hours will be required)?
Sometimes this works!
You may be covered under the warranty, unfortunately some companies might not honor the warranty if you dropped it.
I'm disappointed in Samsung for even making a camera that would break when dropped if this is true!
Anyway click on the following link for Samsung Support @

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.
