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.

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.

Helo i have a problem

Hello,

The dreaded "allign screen problem" strikes again. This is a known bug of these rx ipaqs. You should simply try to see if the ipaq passes this stage if you try to allign the screen a few times. If not, try a firmware update/rom update (from the hp site) If this woun't work then the problem is located on the motherboard,where a small chip called the touchscreen I/O controller has failed. This isn't fixable by replacing the screen, only the whole motherboard. Unfortunately most of the first generation rx 3715 units (first revisions) carried this problem just waiting to happen.

Please ask more details if you need to better understand any of these methods above.
