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 ..
