Ipaq 3115 acting funny

I have had this pda for 2 months and all o fthe sudden today I could not open a directory or open a file on either my memory card or in the computers main memory. I usually store information there but for some reason I can not get at it. When I click on a folder to open it, it simply highlights it. If i click on another item, it highlights that item also (as if the Ctrl key is stuck on a desktop pc) I tried numerous soft resets and even hard reset it but it wont do anything. Anyone have any tips?

This doesn't sound real good. You might as well try the taking the battery out--and since you've already done a hard reset, you might as well try the drastic battery-out-overnight cure. This will provoke another hard reset, but sometimes there's something extra that comes from the device being completely severed from power. Or, is there a ROM upgrade for your model that you could flash, maybe correcting something that's got corrupted. Otherwise, it sounds like the unit will have to be looked at for servicing.

Want to hook up an external mic to a HP iPAQ


It's not possible unless to modify your PDA.

It's necessary to open it, and find a place to place a microphone connector and modigy the mainboard to accept it.

Also, it is necessary to modify the external microphone to match the impendance.

Bottom line, it's possible but requires a person for it with some electronics technical skills.

Best regards,

HP Ipaq h1940 won't sync with Vista


Hi. While holding power button, and pressing reset will do a hard reset to your PDA (reset the device to its factory default settings). So if your PDA is working well, don't do it. As for the syncronization with your Vista PC; Winodws XP uses the ActiveSync software for syncronization, and for Windows Vista, Microsoft developed a brand new syncronization software called "Windows Mobile Device Center". It can be downloaded here: (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center-download.mspx). When you download/install this software to your PC, you should be able to connect your PDA to your PC without any problem, and definitely without changing any OS in your PDA or PC. Hope this helps.

HP iPAQ 210 calendar and contacts won't open


Somehow, the file that stores all of your contact and calendar data got corrupted, and the Calendar program crashed when opening. To fix the problem, rename the pim.vol file on the system root (it's a hidden file; I use Total Commander for file browsing on my device, which shows hidden files by default) to something like pim.vol.bak. You should now be able to open your Calendar, Contact, and ActiveSync again.

I don't know if you are still around and checking this, but it came up at the top of a google search, so hopefully, anyone else who finds this problem will be able to see the solution without having to hard reset their device.

Ipaq 3115 screen


You need to open your PDA and check for a false contact between the connectors of the LCD screen and the main board.

Other cause may be that the LCD screen flat ribbon cable is defective.

Either problem requires to open the PDA to check it.

If you have experience in opening electronic devices then you can try it. Otherwise, I do recommend you to have a experienced technician in checking your PDA.
