Hey :), I'd be happy to help. I honestly don't think that you've physcially damaged your Ipaq, so you should probally hard reset your Ipaq. To do this you must hold down the reset button and the power button at the same time for like 5 seconds. This will get rid of data on your pocket pc, but It might solve your Ipaq's problem. Thanks! and I hope this helps, if it doesn't I'd recommend for you call Hp where they will repair it or give you a new one :)

A factory reset erases all user-installed settings, programs, and data, and restores your HP iPAQ to factory settings. CAUTION All user-installed settings, programs, and data are erased from memory with a factory reset. To perform a factory reset and return your HP iPAQ to factory settings:
Press and hold the OK and Rotate Screen buttons.
While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the HP iPAQ until the device restarts.
When the HP iPAQ restarts, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
The HP iPAQ will now restart and power on.
If you have done the above and still no go. Then your main drive has probably failed.
To perform a factory reset and return your HP iPAQ to factory settings:
1. Press and hold the Quick Launch and Rotate Screen buttons. 2. While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the HP iPAQ until the device restarts. 3. When the HP iPAQ restarts, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button. The HP iPAQ restarts and powers on.

The ipaq 6515 has a microswitch that will turn off the pda if the battery cover is removed. When you remove the cover and try to turn it on even with the external power supply plugged in, the red led will light up.
hello :-) i just talked to another person who was having the same problem as you. And guess what?? the same problem happened to me on my IPAQ 4350. It turned out when I would hard reset my IPAQ it asked me to align the screen but it wouldn't move and it would freeze and not let me pass . But I later found out that my screen was damaged and I got a new touch screen installed and my IPAQ works perfect :-). I would recommend for you to do the same and call HP and see if they could install it for you. Thanks :-}
I had the same problem. Contacted HP customer service chat, and got the following answer that
solved the problem:
1. Remove the battery for 30 minutes. 2. Insert it again in the iPAQ. 3. Perform a clean reset on the iPAQ and at the same time charge the iPAQ.
To perform a clean reset please follow these steps:
Press and hold the Calendar button, the Power button, and the Messaging button.
While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ.
The problem can also be solved by getting a new battery, and performing the clean reset while charging (using the portable charger, not the cradle).
