Is your unit still under warranty? If so, check with the manufacturer.
They can help.

SOURCE: HTC Touch screen not responding!

This is a common problem with many touch screen phones. There are about three reasons this can happen that I know of:

1. Hardware issue. Needs to go in for repair. Hopefully under warranty still.

2. Needs to be re-flashed with the OEM ROM. This is not likely, since you've already Hard Reset, but worth a try.

3. The EASIEST and FIRST thing to check is to run a 'business card' around the edge of the screen between the case and screen. Dirt or other objects can easily get wedged into that area and hold the screen pressed down. This would prevent a press from any other area of the screen. Also, a screen protector that has shifted might cause this. Hopefully this is it, as it's a simple fix!

Good luck!

SOURCE: Touchscreen does not respond to touch

This is straight from Palm Support...
1.Press and hold the UP button on the front panel of your device.

2.While holding the UP button, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus, to gently press the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device

3.The Palm Computing Platform screen will appear. Release the UP button when you see it.

SOURCE: Touchscreen and/or stylus are not working

This method worked! - even though I wound up with a leftover nut that fell out from somewhere. (I am a complete novice at this kind of thing.) It could have been clearer what the plastic retainer was - and which thingy was the multilit cord ribbon. I think the retainer was the gray plastic partial cover of the circuit board - it lifts from the left hand side, and only the smaller of the 2 ribbons seemed to unplug. At any rate, it worked, which is totally amazing! Thanks!

Touch screen on Palm Z22 does not respond

The Data on your Z22 is rock-solid safe, but unlike the answer that states to do a RESET- DO NOT ! The touch screen problem has nothing to do with resetting, it is a failure of the soft plastic top layer of the touch screen. There is a tiny, remote possibility that the logic circuits are out of sync and the touchscreen really is mixed up in a software state, and a SOFT RESET may reset the touch screen, but this is almost unheard of ( but does happen).
I have an entire page on the Z22 and how to maintain, repair and interface it. It is at:

I would suggest trying a few tricks listed on my web page, and see if you can get the screen to work again. It is IMPERATIVE to get a hard plastic cover over the screen to keep it working!

Please read over the information on the Z22 page.

good luck

Touchscreen problems (HP RX or HX series)

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.

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,

Screen not responding to touch

Solved same problem.
Same model ipaq 1940.
Sorry for my bad english;this is what You can do:
Open the ipaq
Remove the mainboard
My problem was the connection between LCD and Touchscreen.
So I solved putting on the connection 3cm of tape to have a fully working contact.Indeed, the lower part of cable, with the 2 little holes was disconnected.
After this all becames to life!
I hope helps!

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....

Hard Reset

On the front pannel you have the 4 buttons and the central navigation key. Press simultaneous the first and the last of this buttons (1 and 4) and then with your stylus (while keeping these buttons pushed) press the soft reset button (bottom of the device, a small hole). Keep these pressed alltogether for 4-5 sec then release them and do a soft reset. Your PDA should now be in factory settings. If not, try again. It will work.

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.
