Man, I feel your pain. I've had the exact same problem. The only thing I've figured so far is to let the battery totally run out. Then, when you turn it back on, the phone/text functions return to normal. However, if you so much as attempt doing anything else, you'll be back to square one.

My motorola Q9m won't turn on at all. I've tried everything..Took the battery out and put back in, it won't turn on at all.


I had the same problem. We took the battery out twice and put it back in and it did not do anything. A third person tried taking out the battery and putting it back in and the phone works fine now.
I'd focus on the battery connections.

My phone will not turn on


Hot sync the phone, clean the battery contacts (touch of alcohol on a q-tip), and try a soft restart...which is simply pulling and reinstalling the battery.

If it does it again, you may have a corrupt application. Hot sync the phone, do a hard restart (pull battery, reinstall battery, hold down power button until black bar crosses bottom of screen, select "yes" to reformat, and re-sync the phone to reinstall the software and data.

If it continues to be a problem, you can try replacing the battery or removing user-installed applications one-by-one to see if the problem clears...but the problem is most likely an unstable phone.

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 ....

Screen wont turn on


You are going to have to ty a hard reset. Don't worry about things being deleted from the phone, as your phone auto syncs with Gmail when you enter your account info again.

To hard reset...turn the phone on while holding home and back. Follow on screen prompt.

If that doesn't work try..

Hold home and power buttons
once phone is on, open keyboard and hold alt first + w

The last thing you need to do is doing a hardreset.
This will erase all the data in your phone but usually fix the problem.
If the problem persist, bring your phone to the nearest store to fix it.

There is a soft/warm reset which bypassed the loop without losing your data.  press the up key and reinstall your battery.  do not let go until the palm screen fully loads. when fully reloaded let go.  sounds a little confusing but the palm website has step by step instructions.

Your battery sounds as though it is completely dead. When a phone uses an application like hotsync this will deplete your battery faster than anything else. My suggestion is this, take your phone to a dealer store and see if they have the Palm Centro model. Have them insert their model battery into your phone to see if your phone turns on. If it does, then you have eliminated the probable cause of not powering on. However, this will not resolve the issue about the auto sync issue which I suspect is depleting your battery. This may require an immediate hard reset, which sets your phone back to manufacturer setting and you lose all contacts and dowloads on phone. The reps should be qualtfied to do your hard reset for you. If your phone stops acting up you've solved your problem. if your phone continues to auto-sync you'll need to take it for repair. There is usually a fee if you do not have protection on the device.
