Just for the knoledgebase. Ipaq 3715 is one of the fewer pda's that have a built in ac power only circuitry. It means it can power on without battery, only from AC, as long as the battery lid is closed. So in a case like this you may want to check if the pda does that. If not, there is a hardware fault. Most rx3715 (also most RX series) are known to have a particular sensibility to cold. In fact some of them may display a message "Too cold" or symilar. This happens when placed in cold environments, and it's symptoms are battery permanent failure, internal inverter circuitry failure (most likely your case), firmware corruption (this is also very possible) or the failure of the screen's digitalizer controller (on the main board not the actual display). Hope this helps in the future.

Its possible (but not likely) that when you took it into a warm room condensation built up inside it. Try removing the battery, memory cards and letting it sit in a warm, dry environment for a few days and try again. If nothing changes I suspect that a component has failed, but -6F is still within the operational range of commercial electronics. If your device is still in warranty then I would call HP up and ask for a warranty replacement. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate this posting.

    Another thing is that its also possible and more likely the battery was damaged when it got that cold, won?t supply power and won?t charge. It might be worth it to purchase or borrow a new battery and perform a test.

I bought a grass strimmer glc1825n in 2015 the first battery would not hold a charge I purchased a second battery that is not holding a charge I only have a small lawn so it is not used for long ?

Unfortunately your cutter is using Ni Cad batteries, the cannot be left on charger any longer that it takes to full charge. Laving them on will damage battery and they develop a memory and that is where they will charge to. No magic mouse milk is available, replace cutter with one that use lithium ion batteries. Less wight quicker charge don;t slow down as it gets low, it will run full speed and then stop. good Luck

Can you leave GoGo scooter batteries plugged in four three months

Do you mean a charger plugged in for four months ? or the battery pack on the scooter for four months ? if it not charging and left on the scooter they will discharge and may never recover.

Leaving it on charge for four months ?, the charger will go into trickle charge mode once it fully charged the batteries, manufacturers will agree this is a good thing , if left for weeks and weeks , it should be charged up fully once a week if not in use and i recommend removing the battery case as i seen issues arise from leaving a battery pack on a scooter for long periods of time, for starters they discharge quicker,.

How do you reset it to factory settings

To perform a soft-reset (if the device has locked), briefly insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715
To perform a hard reset (losing all data!), insert the stylus or a paperclip into the reset hole on the bottom left of the 3715 while holding down the far left and far right of the four main buttons. Information in the iPAQ File Store will not be lost, but data on the Internal memory will be wiped.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hp ipaq 3715

Hopefully you can do a warranty repair, I'm pretty sure the main board is damaged since a hard reset should have taken you back to the factory defaults.
