Question about HP iPAQ HX2415 Pocket PC
Last year I spilled coffee on the screen of my IPAQ hx2415. It would come on, start to reset and begin with where you use the stylus to go through the calibrating procedure, but would not respond to the stylus. I sent it to elaptoprepair(.com) and they said it needed a new motherboard for $150.00. Since I could buy a good used IPAQ for that price on e-bay, I told them to just send it back to me. I got it back 2 months later and one day I just tried to turn it on. It came on, the screen lit up, but just a blank screen (I tried soft reset, hard reset, all of that). It was right by my laptop and I noticed that my laptop was telling me another computer was nearby, detected by the infrafred. It was the IPAQ, and it started to sync. I was able to explore it through Activesync and everything was there - Windows, files, etc. I don't understand how the motherboard can need replacing when it appears to be there when connected to my laptop. MY DILEMMA is this: I am willing to spend the $35.00 or so that I can get a screen assembly replacement for on e-bay, but that's all it would be worth spending, but I don't know if it IS the screen. By the way, it appears to have been thoroughly cleaned too - I saw no evidence of coffee on it (?). Can you tell if this sounds like it needs the screen replaced? Or can the motherboard be shot even though I can get into it via ActiveSync and everything looks normal? This just doesn't make sense to me.
Can I ask, did you have any problems with the company, elaptoprepair.com?
I have read things and i wanted to make sure this was a real company with solid service and not a scam. I have read some people complaining that they did not get their laptops back and there were double charges on credit cards. I just want to know if you found this to be true and what your experience with this company was.
