Anyone have those files?

I have dedicated use for this old rx3715 ... to be a clock by my bed like it is now, but also to receive and play an audio stream via the wifi. That is it. I've tried the audio stream with the WindohsMobile 2003, it does not like the website it needs to go to and crashes the browser. With android, its an app... press the app and whammo, its playing. ( I have an Acer A500 doing the job at the moment, but that is a VERY EXPENSIVE audio player )

Any help, tips, tricks etc... would be helpful.

Thanks

With Windows Mobile, streaming radio is actually a snap (and a hell of a lot less of a headache than getting it to work on android - I still can't find software that'll stream radio on mine) and if you can find the latest version of TCPMP, you'll be in good shape. It is pretty hard to find (especially now) and a lot of sites only have outdated versions of it. If I remember correctly, there is a thread here on XDA DEVELOPERS where you might be able to download it, otherwise I've probably got a CAB for it somewhere I could upload.

Good luck.

Sorry... I'm spending my time with webOS now and my GSM Unlocked North American Pre 2...

My iPAQ rx3115 now refuses to stay on. it powers down at random times, quite frequently. Most likely due to all the tinkering I did. Oh well, it was old and saw ALOT of service.

Here are all the relevant files I am still sharing via MediaFire:

On old devices usually just the battery dies - have you tried another one?

I doubt it's the battery...

Charge lasts over time. The system reports accurately (from what I see) to my battery icon patch, so that tells me the battery is reporting to the motherboard.

It just cuts out. I can turn it back on, but the same thing happens again. It isn't a fault in auto screen dim to save power. I was using rx3115 as an eReader. More than enough tapping to keep it awake. The shutdowns occur at random anywhere from 2 - 10 minutes, over and over as I try to use the device.

I tried reflashing the ROM to clean the system out and start fresh. No luck. The problem persists.

You are right - this is not typical for a dead battery. Mostly phone users report that their device shuts off when "using" the device. This is when battery drain gets the voltage drop due to inner resistance below the shut off value.
Battery drivers are usually not reporting actual values but averaged over a (rather long) time. So irregular battery behavior would not be seen by querying internal driver data.

If you find a pattern that heavier use (in terms of battery drain) shortens the time to shut-off this may still be a clue to the battery.

one other thing: why not simply share the mediafire folder with all your files in there? No need to copy paste individual links...

Default ipaq random shutdown possible solution

I have an ipaq h2215 that I currently use and I did experience the dim screen and shutdowns. This is what I did to fix it.
The battery cover has a pin that pushes a bottom down to let the device know that there is a battery inside. The small bottom somehow losses the connection and is not push hard enough to make contact and you get the device turning off.
I place a drop of hot glue on the bottom to push it down permanent to avoid any miss-contact and problem solve!
Give this a try and your device will work as the way you got it from day one!

Weird. My 4150 iPAQ actually has a similar problem where the back sometimes doesn't quite activate the pin all the way, so sometimes the screen will go dark if you "tap" it wrong. I've been using a little piece of green paper in it for years (I'm sure other colors would be fine too), but hot glue might be a good idea too.

Thanx Guys...

I'm sorta sloppy so I'll stay away from the glue.

I have a piece of folded paper inside the battery tray in (I hope) the right spot and with the right thickness...

We'll see, but so far it seems to be working.
