RX3115 Remains on

I just got a new IPAQ and am very pleased so far, but found out that even though I press the button to turn the unit off overnight, I awoke to a dead battery when I tried to turn it on (It was a 70% when I thought I turned it off). It seems to run even when I've tried to turn it off. Could this be an Active Sync problem even though its not connected to the computer?

Calendar appointments will wake up the unit. You can change the power settings so that the unit will turn off after a certain amount of time. On my iPAQ rx3715, it's Start>Settings>Power>Advanced tab.

I need a hard reset for my hp ipaq rx3115


Look at the very bottom of your iPAQ. Screen should be facing up. To the far left of the charger port there is a small black circle. Use a ball point pen, or other small diameter object, and insert the tip into the black hole to firmly but gently "tap" the button that is inset in the hole. This should activate a hard reset. Do not touch or otherwise mess with any buttons while the reset is in progress. Depending on what is loaded on your iPAQ this could take a few minutes.

IPAQ rx3115 continuously, "screen alignment",


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 RX3115 (or RX3715) 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.

Best regards,

HP rx3115 hard reset


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.
