Question about HP iPAQ HX2415 Pocket PC

1 Answer

BLANK LIT-UP SCREEN

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.

    I have a similar problem but without the spilled coffee. The screen just stopped working. I can use the control buttons but the screen does not respond to the stylus. I have both hard and soft reset the device to no avail. I can connect to my computer through activesinc. Can some one help 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.

I want to format my ipaq hx2410 please tell me how to do that


To perform a hard reset you need to press buttons 1 and 4 in addition to the reset hole. This should do the trick.


The guidelines for resetting your phone is given below

Performing a Hard Reset

Perform a hard reset only when you want to clear all
user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM
(Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have
loaded are stored.

CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data
and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to
lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ
Pocket PC for about two seconds.

3. When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the
Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus
from the Reset button.

Note: If you simultaneously push and hold the Reset, Calendar,
and iTask buttons for more than two seconds, the battery
disconnects. To restart the device, either plug the device into the
AC Adapter or press the Reset button again.
After performing a hard reset, you may need to reinstall
applications stored in iPAQ File Store to restore shortcuts and full
functionality.

4. The Pocket PC resets and powers on.

To return your iPAQ Pocket PC to factory settings after
performing a hard reset:

1. Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer > My Device.
2. Tap the iPAQ File Store folder to open it.
3. Tap Edit > Select All.
4. Tap and hold the selected files, then tap Delete.
5. Tap Yes to delete all file in iPAQ File Store.

Hx2415 stuck on align screen


i think you have a problem with you touch screen digitizer. you can send your device to a repair center to replace the TP only, without the need od replacing the entire LCM display panel.
A touch panel withou the lCD should cost much less than an LCD.

BLANK LIT-UP SCREEN


In the future, whenever you spill liquid on something electonic, unplug it immediately. If there was no electricity going through it at the time, you can usually let it dry for a day or two, and it should still work.
