HP iPAQ 3715 - screen problems

I recently purchased an iPAQ 3715, but suspect I've got a faulty unit - the screen is prone to flicker & then die (either to a white or grey screen). However, it *seems* to be related to the wi-fi settings. If wi-fi is disabled, the device appears to be quite stable. The same seems to be true if wi-fi is enabled & a strong connection is available. However, if wi-fi is enabled but no connection available the screen will immediately die, although the touch screen remains responsive. I've discovered that I can enable wi-fi, see the screen die, but then tap the screen where the wifi button is located & it comes back to life! Does anyone have a resolution for this, or confirm my suspicions that it needs to be returned as faulty? Kind regards

Return it as faulty. WiFi should not impact your screens ability to stay on.
