Same problem, my Ipaq rx3115' touch screen won't respond; I soft reset, hard reset; I connected it to my computer,
the computer sees it, creates an association, etc. The screen will not
respond, it is just stuck on the align screen, screen, and it will not
work. The battery light, when I plug it in, blinks; however, it blinks
red, not amber. Then it stops and is steady state on, but, like I said,
it is red, not amber.

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.
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 RX3715 (or RX3115) 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.
Had the same problem with my hp rx3115 . Worked fine, then the next day dead. power button, lower buttons, or outter reset button didn't work to turn it on. Okay so, i thought it just needed to recharge. Used computer cable for active synchronizing that also recharges, still dead. Then cable just for recharging. Finally comes on. Charged it all the way up, synchronized it, unplugged it, few minutes......dead. The battery is no good.
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.
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.
