Question about Palm m515 Handheld

1 Answer

Almost the same problem as buddy06 ...

With the exception that in my m515 the logo keeps blinking. I tried all types of resets I know (around 11) but none of them worked... Strange, uh? I think it would be worthy to try open it and see if the reset button is somehow stucked. I'll try it and inform about the results.

That is strange. The only solution I've got (beside checking the status of the reset button), would be to disconnect the battery. Wait a few moments, and then put it back in. Getting the back of can be a bit tricky, here's some instructions.

I was given a pilot m515 and i do not know anything about it. no instructions. i need to know how to turn it on and also, the slot where a "card" might go is empty. please help or steer me in the right...


hi betty .. the m515 is a nice machine still, and worth getting to know .. the card slot is for storing extra things its not needed to run the m515 ( you can put in an SD card if you want to store a lot of stuff but the m515 has lots of memory inside already ... you can charge the battery or run the unit on the charger ... push the top right button and the unit should come to life .. if you hold the on/off button for a few seconds then it will turn on or off the display backlight .. if the unit fails to start then you can do a "reset" .. that will reboot the machine and fixes most problems.. the top of the stylus unscrews .. this gives you a small probe that can be used to reset the machine .. on the back near the top is a hole marked "reset" .. poke the probe in there to reboot the palm ... if you want to do a "hard reset" (erases all data) then hold the power button in while you poke the reset .. that will give you a choice to "erase everything" .. if you chose to do that then you would be starting the palm like it came out of the factory .. all phone numbers and such would be erased ... that should get you going .. there is a tutorial included in the palm that can get you started .. if it works on the charger but not on the battery or if the battery goes dead quickly then new batteries are not expensive but you need a really small torx tool to get the back off to change it .. you can take it with you to the hardware to match it up with one .. if the battery is ok then you should be enjoying you palm about now ..

How do you turn on the Palm m515


the palm m515 has a button at the top right corner .. hitting the button quickly will turn the unit on or off ... holding the button for 2 seconds will turn the display backlight on or off ... if the unit fails to start then you can do a reset .. thats like a reboot .. the top of the stylus unscrews ... that gives you a little probe that you can use to push the reset button on the back top center ... if the battery is bad you can still run the machine with the charger hooked up ..

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 ....

Palm M515 general failure


You may perform full reset by pressing the reset and power button together. If issue persists you may try disconnecting the battery about 10 minutes and connect back. That procedure will erase all user data and will set the unit to the factory default

Palm M515 and compatibility with Vista Home Premium


I was having a similar problem with my M515.  I had originally installed the Palm Desktop from my CD, which was an older version.  When I totally uninstalled the old version and installed the newer version from the Palm website I was able to do a successful sync.  I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate and Palm Desktop version 4.1.4

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
