Question about Palm m515 Handheld

1 Answer

Palm turns on but will not operate programs

The palm 515 died so I charged it and then did a restore which was successful. When I turned the palm off and on the screen turned on with the palm powered tmc logo and now it will not allow me to access any data nor will it turn off when I press the off button. Seems to be frozen. I pressed the the reset button (inserting a paperclip) and that did power off the unit. If I turn the unit on it goes back to the white screen and freezes with the "palm powered" logo. Thanks,

All palm information has vanished.

Your battery may have 'died' or not been recharged in the cradle. Make sure the light on the cradle is on (green) when the Palm is correctly seated. If not, follow the cable from the cradle to the serial port at the back of the computer. The other wire entering that connector comes from the power pack - check that the power pack is plugged in to the power supply and is switched on. If he green light still isn't illuminating then the power pack is suspect and may need replacing.
After it has been in the cradle with the green light on for a couple of hours, do a hotsync. This should restore some of the data. If you get this far, then you will need to follow the instructions in the manual to restore your programs. If the battery is dead then I think it is unlikely you will get another since Palm no longer services the Vx

My Palm Tungsten E2 does not turn on.

Have you tried doing a soft reset? To do a soft reset, use the tip of the stylus to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.

Palm pilot will not stay powered up. It has power for about 3 seconds then goes blank. There is a full charge on the battery too.

Sounds like it is time for a new battery. Not expensive.
Google for palm 515 battery and you should find a few places. Worth doing if you can do yourself or if you really like your 515 ;-] Labor cost on top of the battery might be the deciding factor.

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 ..

M515 Palm Pilot

here is your manual in PDF form

if the unit was new then you would charge it for about 10 hours .. but since its not likely new then it doesnt hurt anything to just leave it on charge ... you can even operate the palm while its charging .. over night charge should be enough to get pretty close to full ... the palm internally automatically turns off the charge when the battery is full .. so you dont have to worry about over charging .. if the unit wont come on then you can do a "reset" (back at top)
