Palm locked in Cradle

Hi I have just aquired a Palm m500 with no user manual. I have docked it into the cradle for charging, but it seems to have locked into the charging plug. I am nervous about pulling it to hard, any suggestions how to un dock? Cheers Francis B

Handspring Visor Username Deleted; How to Add on Device


To recreate your problem, I have setup the my Visor with no username, placed it in the cradle, and connected the cradle via USB port.

In this configuration, I do receive the same error message that you reported. Multiple issues can cause this error to be generated.

1. Place your Prism in the blue charging cradle. Confirm that the green charging LED is flashing or illuminated (below the power button on the Prism). If the green LED is not lit, then reposition the Prism until it is. If the green LED still doesn't illuminate then check the cradle and it's connectors for dirt and debris. Also check the copper connectors on the Prism for dirt and debris.

2. Depress the grey HotSync button on the charging cradle. The error message will appear. Press OK to clear the error display. If nothing happens when you press the grey button you need to check the copper connectors in the blue cradle and the bottom edge of the Prism for dirt and debris.

3. Check the upper right hand corner of the Prism display for the HotSync application. If any characters appear on the top line, opposite the HotSync header, then that is your username. If no characters are present, then there is no username in the PDA.

Regardless of whether there is a username in the Prism, the HotSync should still be possible. Once you successfully connect the cradle to the USB port and successfully connect to the desktop computer, a popup window will ask you to Create or Select the HotSync User.

Do you receive this popup window on the PC?

If not, your setup or connection probably has an issue.

4. Look at the Prism HotSync screen. Underneath the HotSync icon in the center of the display is a Drop Down selection. The options are
a. Direct USB/Serial
b. IR to a PC/Handheld

Since you are using the cradle, you should select option a.

Once you have confirmed this setup, you need to confirm the desktop computer setup.

5. Be sure to start the HotSync Manager Application on the desktop computer.

6. Left Click on the desktop computer HotSync Icon in the system tray, and confirm that Local USB has a checkmark beside it.

7. Depress the grey HotSync button on the charging cradle again. If the HotSync popup still does not appear on the desktop computer, left click on the HotSync icon and uncheck Local, Modem Network and Infrared and then depress the HotSync Button again.


There is a hidden method in the Prism for deleting the user name.
  • Open the Memo application on your Prism.
  • Tap New.
  • Enter the ShortCut character.
  • Enter a period '.'
  • Enter the number 5.
Whether you entered the shortcut character, period and 5 correctly or not, the characters you've entered will disappear and the memo pad will remain blank. To see if you succeeded:
  1. Depress the Grey HotSync button on the cradle
  2. Your user name appears in the upper right corner of the screen: if it's blank, then your user name has been deleted. The next time you HotSync with this device, you will be asked to create a new user name.
Note: Creating a new User name, will not affect the data stored in the Prism, other than initializing the user name.

There is a freeware application to Change the user name on the Prism, but you would need to HotSync to the desktop or beam the application from another Palm PDA to install it.

Palm i705 won't turn on


Hi,

are you certain that the belkin universal charger, is compatable with the palm ?
if any single cable, is wired differently. this could have damaged the palm.
try a hard-reset using your palms user manual.
this varies between pdas, usually comprising of either a reset hole, at the bottom of the palm, or underneath the battery on certain models.
i,d suggest obtaining the correct charger/usb cable.
as you may cause damage to the unit. most new devices have a battery fitted, but does not necessarily mean it,s charged.

Hope this helps, please rate the solution.

Mike @ compurepair.

Palm LifeDrive not charging


I had the exact same annoying problem. Easy fix though. Get the palm universal cradle. The power connector is either worn or loose and making partial contact. So when you use the normal adapter there might be a position that works but generally it won't. When you use the cradle the weight of the LD presses the contacts more and it will behave.

I went through a couple of chargers before getting the cradle and fixing it once and for all.

Just got Verizon 755p - can the power stay on while charging?


Try StOIC (Stay On In Cradle):

http://mytreo.net/downloads/stoic-stay-on-in-cradle,221.html

It's free and it works - the screen will stay on whenever the Treo is connected to charging power (e.g., in the cradle).

Enjoy!

Cradle not synchronizing with computer vx series


I've had some problems syncing my Palm with a cradle on occasion.

I found that I had to push my Palm down on it (and sometimes keep applying pressure), then start the sync.

Do you hear a beep when you initially place the Palm on the cradle? This is a successful connection noise if so. If not, then the Palm/Cradle/Computer are not successfully connecting from the get go.

You may want to make sure the connectors are securely connected together and maybe even clean the contact points.

Re: Tungensten C


It sounds like the Palm isn't properly getting charged.

Maybe if you can put something to hold it down on the cradle and let it sit there to get a charge for 1-2 hours, then it may power on regularly.

Palm pilot not syncing while in cradle


You can try cleaning the contacts on both the palm and the cradle. For the Palm itself you can try a small pencil eraser.
For the cradle a little isopropyl alcohol on a cotton swab works well.
Do examine the palm socket closely, sometimes the socket is damaged and may recess into the unit so it cannot seat properly
