Tip & How-To about Handspring Visor Deluxe Handheld

Visor Deluxe does not start

Hi.

The procedure below shows how to reset the PDA to factory settings after backing up all your personal data.
After backing up your data with HotSync, perform a hard reset, this will erase all applications and returns your device to its factory default settings.

To perform a hard reset:
1. Hold down the power button on the front panel of the PDA.
2. While holding down the power button, use a paper clip to press the reset button.
3. Release the power button.
4. You will get a message warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on the PDA, do the following:
Press the top scroll button on the front panel
to complete the hard reset and display the startup screen.
If you press any other button you will do a soft reset, that will not fix the problem. In that case restart the procedure.
5. After doing hard reset the unit will return to the initial factory state. All third party installed applications will be deleted, and setting will be reported to factor default.








.




Connect to HotSync and do a backup of the PDA, then do hard reset on Palm.

If the PDA is not detected by Hotsync, then there is an additional problem.

To troubleshoot problems given by third party application you do a backup, then rename the backup folder containing third party application data to Backup.old, and do hard reset.

After that you start restoring applications from backup.old one at the time, when one application jams the Palm, that is the responsible for the error message.

Procedure is described here.

Regards.

G.

To start you can delete safely any music or video file.

If that is not enough to fix the problem, then the best thing to do is resetting the PDA to factory settings after backing up all your personal data.

After a soft reset, my Palm TX becomes stuck on the "Palm Powered" screen. I have tried all of the resets, including the hard reset. The PDA does not respond to any of the resets. I can not turn the PDA off; I usually leave the PDA running until the battery drains. After I recharge the PDA, the same problem exists. Any suggestions on how to get my PDA working?


You need to perform full reset which will erase all personal data and set everything to factory default. You need to press reset and power button to perform full reset.It will give you confirmation once you choose yes it will perform hard reset If issue persist you may disconnect and reconnect to internal battery
