Question about HP iPAQ RX3715 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Audio issues... Recently, my rx3715 has had trouble with its audio. It will pick up headphones occasionally, but often in only very specific (random) positions of the plug (I have to spin it until it connects and then if it gets hit at all i lose it). The sound is fine when its connecting, but it doesn't do it often. Also, when there is nothing plugged in, it (i think) picks up that it DOES have headphones, and so i get no sound. Frequently i have to stick the stylus in the headphone jack in order to get some form of sound. It's almost as if it's reversed as to whether it's registering headphones or not... I don't think its broken, but i have no idea what it could be!

Re: Audio issues...

I had this same problem. The headphone jack is coming loose from the main board. Instead of getting repaired I purchased some bluetooth compatible headphones. DON'T get the ones made for the ipaq by HP. Lots of breakage issues (including the one I purchased).

Good luck

Sounds like a mechanical issue that hp should fix under warranty. It would be annoying to have to perform surgery every time you want to remove the headphones. Also, if my inderstanding of how these jacks work is correct, it's possible that rapidly plugging and unplugging the headphones could get the audio to go back to the internal speaker. I would suggest getting hp to permanently fix it.

Line Recording with H5500

i think that audio jack is for headphone-microphone combined (those cable plugs have a three black lines , top for left audio, center for right audio, last line for microphone) so you can use a headphones with mic directly with this 5500. the mic is i said before is the last line. what you need is a monophone plug. (mono mic) i dont think stereo mic will work.

No audio from speakers

With other models (I don't know about the 6515) there's a known hardware issue with the switch in the headphone jack sticking, getting bent, or breaking. One discussion at: If the phone ringer is on the same circuit as the rest of audio, then that would not be the explanation. But I can also imagine the ringer being a separate circuit. Good luck.
