Question about i-mate K-jam Smartphone

Device goes into "self-generating loop"

Tough one to describe to you. At times, the unit goes into what I call a "self-generating loop".

The cursor flies around the screen causing it to scroll/shift all by itself, plus menus appear/disappear. It's like having a ghost operating the device at high speed with things moving all over the place. During this time you cannot interrupt what's happening with the stylus or a screen press as it is moving so fast. I have to reset or go ionto standby then power up again.

It can go into and out of the "loop" with no discernable pattern that I have been able to identify. I've tried hard resets but that makes little difference.

When trying to sync, error message reads (sys 0505)(0,841).What can I do? For Palm TX handheld


Hi,
Try to perform a System Reset (see article linked below). If it works to break the loop, you should then be able to delete the offending "My Palm" software and perform a Hotsync to backup your data to your desktop.

If that doesn't break the loop, you'll have to perform another Hard Reset. Sometimes, a Hard Reset takes a couple of tries to get it right, since it's easier to do it wrong than to do it right.

This article discusses the various types of Reset for different Palm devices:

http://tinyurl.com/zlwza

Until you break the TX out of its loop, you won't be able to get the data from it.

To see the Palm OS version running on your TX, enter the Menu, select Info, then Version.


To Get Out Of A Loop:
  1. Perform a SYSTEM RESET by doing the following:
a) Press the UP Button
b) And THEN press and release the RESET Button
c) When you see the second Logo (Palm Powered) release the UP Button
d) Now check if your SYSTEM RESET worked by going to Beam Receive. If it goes back to Off even after you put it to On it means you were successful

2. Now Perform A SOFT RESET by pressing and releasing the button in the back once

  1. After a soft reset, a logo screen appears, followed shortly by a Preferences screen asking you to set time and date.

  1. If a soft reset does not break it out of the loop, you may need to try one of the other resets below.

  1. Do an INCOMPLETE HARD RESET by holding down the power (on/off) button on your device.

  1. While holding down the power button, Press and release the reset button on the back of your handheld device

  1. Keep the power button pressed and release it when the “Palm Powered” logo appears.

  1. A message will now appear warning that you are about to “Erase All Data”. And this will happen if you press UP or DOWN.

  1. Instead you press left or right to begin a soft reset, leaving your data intact.

  1. Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Sorry this was so long, I tried to put everything down that might help you.

Hi, from mexico n800 problem


Are you sure it's the right charger? The charger is not supplying enough "juice" to keep the N800 on when it turns on. Once it turns off, it charges enough to try and turn on again... hence the endless loop of power cycling.

Hope this helps,
Bill

Please help me to fix my problem


means your firmware is corrupt. the only way to get you back in your device is to do a hart reset via your sw keys.....

WARNING, This will delete everything that is stored on your device, and unless your computer can recognize your device, you wont be able to get it back.

in order to the the software reset, the device needs to be fully off. preferably, take the battery out of the phone before you get started.

press and hold the 'soft keys' (buttons above the back arrow and home keys, they have a line on them) and hold those down. while you are doing that, press and hold your power button for about 3 (three) seconds and release the power button. the phone should begin to turn on but then it should go to a black DAS screen with white writing. at this time you can release the Soft keys.

press the green call button to reset the device. it will reboot and you should be able to get in your phone. if this fails and if the computer does not recognize the device, you will have to contact either your phone provider or HTC to replace the device.

Probably an incompatible app you recently installed. Try deleting the app. If all else fails, you might try doing a hard reset. Make sure your data is backed up since a hard reset wipes out ALL data.

Align screen loop?


Look at this http://www.fixya.com/support/t132057-getting_past_align_screen

you basically need to get the wire to stop touching the home key, which can be accomplished (as described in the link) with either the quick fix method, wedging something in the bottom screen, or the better-long term method of opening the axim up and taping the part that has shorted.

best,

IPAQ rx3115 would not bypass the screen aligning


I experienced the same problem with my rx3115 after having it for 3 days. It is working again, fortunately. I removed the battery from the device and left it alone for 24 hours. I then reinstalled the battery and connected the charger. When it powered up, it went through the initialization process in the same way that it did when I first used it. I hope this helps you out with your iPAQ.
