M515 green light on and dead screen

Hi guys, Today with no warning the screen got completely dead and the green recharging light is on. When I put it the PDA into its cradle to charge, the charging light goes off! And when I take it out of the cradle the charging light comes back on again. I can hear a very low buzzing in the PDA too. Do you know a way to fix this issue? Any tip will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance Sergio

Re: m515 green light on and dead screen

Hey, i had the same problem. My m515 stayed with the green light on for 3 days until the battery died out (and lost all my data). I keep the m515 off and without recharge for 2 more days. Then I recharge it in its craddle and it seems to be ok. Good luck

How do I dispose of a Palm m515?


its likely the battery has just gone bad .. a new battery is not expensive but you need a small torx tool to get it open .. the m515 is still a nice machine for some, so donating it to Goodwill or other charity will do a lot of good for several people .. you can just drop it off at most places.. put everything in a box so it doesnt get seperated ..

I was given a pilot m515 and i do not know anything about it. no instructions. i need to know how to turn it on and also, the slot where a "card" might go is empty. please help or steer me in the right...


hi betty .. the m515 is a nice machine still, and worth getting to know .. the card slot is for storing extra things its not needed to run the m515 ( you can put in an SD card if you want to store a lot of stuff but the m515 has lots of memory inside already ... you can charge the battery or run the unit on the charger ... push the top right button and the unit should come to life .. if you hold the on/off button for a few seconds then it will turn on or off the display backlight .. if the unit fails to start then you can do a "reset" .. that will reboot the machine and fixes most problems.. the top of the stylus unscrews .. this gives you a small probe that can be used to reset the machine .. on the back near the top is a hole marked "reset" .. poke the probe in there to reboot the palm ... if you want to do a "hard reset" (erases all data) then hold the power button in while you poke the reset .. that will give you a choice to "erase everything" .. if you chose to do that then you would be starting the palm like it came out of the factory .. all phone numbers and such would be erased ... that should get you going .. there is a tutorial included in the palm that can get you started .. if it works on the charger but not on the battery or if the battery goes dead quickly then new batteries are not expensive but you need a really small torx tool to get the back off to change it .. you can take it with you to the hardware to match it up with one .. if the battery is ok then you should be enjoying you palm about now ..

Samsung Blackjack II battery went completely dead and now the phone will not recharge. When plugged in, green recharge light will not come on.


Issue with either battery, charging port on phone, or charger. Attempt replacement of charger or different outlet first. Then battery replacement, about $50. Then phone replacement (hope you're eligible for warranty or have insurance if you don't want to upgrade).

Palm m515 When I use the stylist it will not work where I push I reset and it still did not work


you need to recalibrate the touch screen ..
touch the "Home" button a few times until you get "system" in the top right corner .. then select "Welcome" .. that will let you calibrate the touch screen and set the clock/calendar ..

Hard reset and charging problems


do the hard reset again .. hold the power button down while operating the reset in the back .. keep the power button down for a few seconds .. that should bring up a display "delete all" .. you can choose to do so .. that will be a hard reset .. now if the battery is dead and the charger is not working then nothing will work for you .. you might have a bad charger .. often the end that plugs into the unit develops a broken wire inside the cable ..
the m515 wont charge from the sync cable (shame) it needs the external power adapter .. make sure the connections on the charger and palm are clean .. the power adapter is 5 volts and i think about 1 amp .. )(center pos) if you want to try another adapter .. the tip is rather standard ... also you can get a universal power adapter from radio shack that will work on just about anything .. you just plug in a suitable tip .. the tip for your palm is an "A19" .. the power adapter is "IGO" wall adapter 23-1401 model PSM08VADJ ... that seems to work nicely and it plugs directly in to the palm .. so you can work with it plugged in .. when the charger is working there should be a lightning bolt thru the battery symbol .. it sounds like you already know that .. if the battery has gone open then it may not indicate a charge .. but the unit should still work while on the charger if that is actually working ....

The phone became dead, recharging led does not light up.


On following the steps as stated in my problem text. I kept the phone idle for 2 hours, then I pressed the "ON" button, the screen lighted up and then went "off" again. I again pressed the "ON" button, the screen lightened up and the windows setup completeded in 2-3 minutes. The phone started to work. I think the phone got hanged since the battry went too low. Now it is working OK. I will always keep the battry charged.

I thank you and all your team mates for all the assistance you have extended in solving my problem. I am grateful that your site gives ample knowledge to sort such problems by the user.
Once again thanks a lot,
Regards
John
