Palm iiixe will not turn on and the batteries check out fine.

It died. Accept it and move on. Probably want to consider buying an up-to-date PDA (like an Apple iPOD Touch!).

Where can I get a manual for Palm IIIx PDA?


Here it is, Click HERE.Once the link is clicked, you'll be asked to "Save" or "Open" (Internet Explorer), click "Save" to download, but if you are not asked with those options, it should open up in your browser (firefox, google chrome, opera), wait until the page is fully loaded, click the floppy disk like icon on the top-left corner of the page to save/download it.


Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Tried to start up Palm IIIxe after a couple years and it seems to not work at all. Is there a trick or something special that needs to be done to it? I tried the reset button, but that didn't work either.


A very basic question would be if you've fully charged the battery pack. It is very likely to have gone dead in the interim, which means you'll have to reload everything (other than the ROM-based software that came with it) once the unit returns to life.

I have a Palm IIIxe with a faded screen and it will not sync. Can anyone give me any ideas on how to repair this?


faded screens are always a bad sign
usually, it indicates light water damage on the motherboard.
other times, it's significant of a ruined lcd screen or both
Regretfully, water damage is almost impossible to repair
you could try putting the device in a bag of rice for two days and see if that fixes it. I highly doubt it will though

My new Vista system cannot read the PalmIIIxe I have in the old HP machine. Is there an upgrade?


Older palm products and vista aren't compatible. You either needs to transfer info via bluetooth or upgrade your palm if you wish to continue using vista.

Palm IIIx power problem


You did it right, but are you sure the new batteries are fresh, and they are inserted correctly?

Double check. It is really easy to put the batteries in wrong if you haven't used the device in a while. And batteries can be bad, even if newly purchased.

If the Palm was working the last time you used it, being inactive wouldn't kill it. If the batteries that were in it all this time leaked, The leaking chemicals could damage the unit. But that would be pretty obvious when you took the old batteries out.

Once the batteries run down to zero, you would lose any data that was stored in in the. You would have to re-load it from a backup. Even so, it would boot up and take you to the setup screens when you turn it on with working batteries.

Make sure the batteries are OK. Sometimes, even brand new ones are defective.

Just a question. Can I download my palm desktop address book from my IIIxe to a neww Z22 handheld unit?


I went to Best Buy and bought a Palm Tungsten E2. Download was easy, and I have all items from the old IIIxe on the new unit.

Palm IIIxe backlight


No, the backlight seems to be about the first thing to go when these screens fail. You can possibly get a replacement screen from pdaparts.com.

Palm IIIx Screens Die


It is possible that screen connector got loose. My initial intermitent problem was that PDA wouldn't turn on properly, the screen would flicker and/or show grey area. On my palm IIIx I did remove the back cover and pushed the connector all the way in the slot and now it works just fine.

Retreiving information off barely-functioning IIIx


Sorry to hear about your trusty little workhorse dying, but all is not lost, meaning your data. You'll just need to get a replacement sync cable that can somehow replace the old RS232 connection. You should be able to use the same cable that connects to the m100 without spending the extra money to buy the old Palm MacPac. Once you've got your data retrieved your new device (I assume you're addicted like the rest of us) should offer you more options. Otherwise you may want to consider getting a USB or Firewire expansion card.
