Factory Reset for Tungsten T5 handhelds

If you've set a password on your device, any hard reset will automatically become a Factory Reset. With this method, you'll enter a password and then perform a hard reset.

1.On your handheld, launch the Prefs application. From the list that appears, under General, select Security.
2.If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your handheld.
3.Once the password has been set, hold down the Power (on/off) button on your device.
4.While holding down the Power button, turn over your device so that you can see the back of it. Still holding the Power button, use an unfolded paper clip or a similar small object to gently press the RESET hole (where?). Keep holding the Power button throughout.
5.While still holding the Power button, the screen will show the Palm logo and a progress bar will appear at the bottom. Then the circular Palm Powered logo will appear. Release the power button when you see the Palm Powered logo.

Keep holding the Power button during this screen. When you see this screen, you can release the Power button.
6.A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld. Press UP.
7.You may see a screen that says "Reformatting in progress. This may take several minutes." This screen will remain for several minutes (up to 10 minutes). Don't do anything while this is happening.
8.If you performed this reset correctly, the screen of your device will go blank after several minutes, and you will not be able to turn on your handheld. The charging LED will not light up. (any other activity - such as the Palm OS logo and then the Applications launcher appearing - means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again)
9.Your device will appear "dead." To wake up your handheld, perform a soft reset.
