Palm m505 Won't Start Up

I have a Palm m505 but nothing happens. I mean, when I charge it, the green light turn on, and when I disconnect it, the green light stays on for ages...it just gets dimmer and dimmer and stays on for days sometimes...besides that, nothing else works, the screen won't show anything at all. All it is is a small thingy with a green light, and thats basicaly it. What do I have to do with it? Battery replacement, screen replacement....?

Re: Palm m505 Won't Start Up

I have an M505 with the same problem. After taking off the back cover, I found a defective (short circuit) SOT23 device nearly centered just below the expansion card slot. The markings are A5RGC, but I have been unable to verify whether this may be a programmable UJT (BRY61), a transistor or a diode. Does anyone have a schematic diagram, or kno where to get one?

Have you tried a hard reset? assuming that you did, it sounds like you need to replace the device itself.

Haven't used my m505 for several years. It won't charge/start. Can it be revived, perhaps w/ new internal battery?


If it won't take the charge it is definitly the battery. You can try to cycle it a few times by charging and discharging it a few tmes and it might revive. If not time to replace. Batteries can be $14 and up so google and look around for the best deal.

I stopped using my m505 for several months. How long until it will be charged enough to turn on? Its been charging now for at least 2 hours and nothing.


I would charge it over night. If the batteries went completely dead sometimes it takes an extended period of time to charge them. If that doesn't work try using the free palm chat. I have enclosed that link. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see Palm chat. From there click on the link that says chat now.
Best wishes.

Not Turning On


your charger port is most likely broken. if you try another charger and get the same thing- replace the phone, it cannot be repaired- unfortunately is not covered by warranty (it is if you bought the insurance for it) and once you replace it- NEVER use the original cords from the original phone or it might happn again.

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger


Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

Like dead


Could be the power connector on the bottom is worn out. I have sent mine back to Palm to have this repaired, it seems to be a common problem at the moment this question has nbeen posted a lot recently
