Palm i705 won't turn on

I purchased a Belkin univeral charger kit (because I misplaced my cradle charger), and hooked it up to my computer, but the palm won't turn on. Can you please assist me? I never really ever used my Palm, so the battery can't be dead.

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.

My palm 515 just stopped holding a charge ...flickered for a few seconds and died on me.Does the battery need replacing?


hook up the charger and see if the palm works .. if it does and the battery wont charge then yes you need a new battery ... they are not expensive but you need a tiny torx tool to get the back off ... thats available at many hardwares .. there are battery kits available that include the tool .. i just took my palm with me and the hardware matched it up with the proper torx ..

If I did not charge my palm m515 will it still work? I just got a Palm m515 and I did not charge it for 24 hours before syncing it to the computer. It works fine on the cradle, but it will not keep a...


the m515 uses a Lithium battery .. the modern version of those batteries have a built in safety feature .. once its first activated then it monitors its own voltage .. if the voltage is ever allowed to go below a certain value then it will refuse to accept a charge ... when it tells you that the battery is dead its actually well above that critical voltage .. but if you let it sit for a long time then self discharge can bring it below the critical value .. when the battery is in that forbiden region then there is a chance that it will grow copper links through its insulator .. then when you try to charge it it could get very hot .. even explode .. so thats why the safety feature .. there are ways to jump start the battery and some people do that .. but you can see there is some risk .. the battery in that palm is not hard to change and they are not expensive but you need a very small torques driver to get the case apart .. i just took my 515 to the hardware and had them match it up with the proper tool .. there are kits available also that have a new battery and the proper tools to take the m515 apart .. of course they cost more..

make sure you have the external charger hooked up to the cradle .. it wont charge from the USB port voltage as i recall on this model..

the lightning bolt indicates that the battery is being charged. I will stay on as long as it is being charged either in the cradle, or using an external charger. If it stays on after it is removed from any external power source, there is a problem with the unit and it needs serviced.

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.

Downloading digital photos to my Vaio Computer


Visit this link for the manual. Click this link for Frequently Asked Questions?

You have two options for downloading pictures.
  1. Use a SD card reader, fast download.
  2. Use the camera and the USB Cradle (Page 180-187 of your owner's manual) There are many more steps than can be described here. The overview is:
    1. Plug power to the cradle
    2. Connect the cradle to the computer using the USB cord
    3. Mount the camera in the cradle
    4. View and copy the images from the camera using your favorite software. Perhaps Picasa2 from Google.
The battery model is NP-20 and the charger for this is "the special BC-10L Battery Charger" and can be purchased here, or the casio model from here.

Palm Z22 won't charge


Keep your kidneys! Have you, in fact, determined that it's the unit and not the charger cable/cradle? You may be better off taking it into a store that sells replacement (OEM) cables/cradles and plugging it in (before you buy, of course, or offer a kidney) to see if it reacts. If you don't have that option, you may need to take a chance and buy a generic or used cable/cradle on eBay or Yahoo! just to see if you really did get a defective unit. The batteries on those are a PitA (pain in the a**) to change. They're soldered directly onto the circuit board, which is why Palm charges $100 to fix them. Nice.

Please let us know how it turns out, or if we can offer more information. We definitely don't want your kidneys!
