Question about Palm LifeDrive Mobile Manager Handheld

Dead; will not boot up

My PDA seemingly has died. I used it in the morning and the next time I went to turn it on it was dead. I've since replaced the battery and recharged it but still was dead. I've tried to reset it with all three resets mentioned but still nothing. When I plug it in I only get the orange light that comes on and that's it. Can I do anyting else to find out what the problem is as I miss my Lifedrive. PDAlover

Re: Dead; will not boot up

I to have the same problem. Palm will switch a refurbished on to me for $175. To talk ot their tech support will cost $25. I have decided to do 1 of 2 things. 1. replace the microdrive with a 4Gb Compact flash and if that is not successful, just throw it away and NEVER get another Palm product. Mine died just after the warranty ran out. 12 months plus a few days.

Battery won't charge after being replaced

The charger might be bad. Or then the pdas connector is bad, or the motherboard is damaged.

to find out is your charger working you could use a tester to test it or another pda.

If you could get some power into the pda you could use the bootloader to test the device. Its been years since I had my 3850.

Il have to find instructions on how to get to the bootloader but test the other things first.

Dropped; now dead

You will have to open up the PDA case and take out internal battery (round one). It might just need to be replace or resitted. Next time, backup your data to a memory card.

Always start with the simplest answer first, so start by removing any memory cards, attached devices and cables and resetting it again. If you still have the same problem check the manual for the Hard Reset procedure, it may seem you've already hard reset it by killing your battery but it's worth a try anyway when your getting this kind of issue.

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

My H5450 won't charge!

When you charge up your iPaq, do you use the cradle, or do you use the AC-adapter with the little iPaq power converter that came with the iPaq? Try both, and see if it charges up your pda. Try and borrow an iPaq car-charger and see if it charges up that way (the ones that do not need the iPaq power converter). If you are lucky enough to power up the iPaq even for 2 minutes, enable USB fast charging in the SETTING -> BATTERY. Your USB-data-cable or cradle will then be able to charge it up that way...
