The battery went dead on my rx3115 and when I try to plug it into the charger, it doesn't seem to charge. The little orange light doesn't blink, nor will it come on. I've tried everything I can think of (changing outlets, taking the battery out and putting it back in, soft reset) and nothing seems to work. Can anyone help me? Thank you!

It depends on what you mean by charging overnight.
1. When you connect the charger, it shows on the phone that it's charging but after a while if you unplug the charger, it's still not charged: if it's the case, that means the battery is dead and needs to be replaced.
2. When you connect the charger, it doesn't show the phone charging: in this case it can be the charger brocken or the phone charge connector is faulty. you can verify that by moving the charger connector a little bit and see if it will start charging, if not you can try with another charger. if it doesn't charge even with another charger, at this time i will say for sure that the phone charge connector is faulty and needs a repair.
do the hard reset again .. hold the power button down while operating the reset in the back .. keep the power button down for a few seconds .. that should bring up a display "delete all" .. you can choose to do so .. that will be a hard reset .. now if the battery is dead and the charger is not working then nothing will work for you .. you might have a bad charger .. often the end that plugs into the unit develops a broken wire inside the cable ..
the m515 wont charge from the sync cable (shame) it needs the external power adapter .. make sure the connections on the charger and palm are clean .. the power adapter is 5 volts and i think about 1 amp .. )(center pos) if you want to try another adapter .. the tip is rather standard ... also you can get a universal power adapter from radio shack that will work on just about anything .. you just plug in a suitable tip .. the tip for your palm is an "A19" .. the power adapter is "IGO" wall adapter 23-1401 model PSM08VADJ ... that seems to work nicely and it plugs directly in to the palm .. so you can work with it plugged in .. when the charger is working there should be a lightning bolt thru the battery symbol .. it sounds like you already know that .. if the battery has gone open then it may not indicate a charge .. but the unit should still work while on the charger if that is actually working ....
The T3 will appear dead until the battery has SOME charge. A totally dead battery, even though plugged into a charger, will not let the T3 turn on. You mention a previous charger problem. Could be a bad charger, or a bad battery. Check to see if the charging light is on on the T3 when you think you are charging. If it is not on, try another charger. If it is on, you may have a bad battery.
My phone had the same problem and it was a battery charge problem. I bought an external charger and another battery and now everything works fine but I have two batteries and an external charger, the phone doesn't charge the batties.
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.
When the battery is totally depleted, you will need to use a charger that came with the phone. Sometimes it will take a few mintues (give it 10) for the battery/charging circuit to come on.
Sometimes you can charge from other sources than the charger that came with the phone. You generally will need enough charge on the battery to start the phone.
Example: If I have enough battery to where the boots and turns off, I can generally get it to charge from USB or my car adapter. You will need to get the phone to turn on and boot most of the way up before it will take a low current charge. If my phone is so dead it will not even turn on, I must plug it into the AC adapter. Sometimes even then the light does not turn on right away.
The problem is probably due to the number of amps provided by the charger. When the battery is totally dead, the charging circuit is drawing so many amps that it will prevent low amp chargers from being able to do the job. That's why these phones have such heavy duty AC adapters.
If it's completely dead USB probably can't do it at all. There's a voltage threshhold, and USB only puts out about half the voltage needed to get over it. USB usually won't manage when thenbattery's below 30%.
Try connecting the iPaq directly to the AC adapter.
