Dropped my Palm TX, IR no longer works

My Palm TX has seen heavy use since I got it over a year ago. I dropped it on the floor once or twice, and now the IR port does not seem to work. I can beam out, but I cannot receive. Also, it no longer recognizes my wireless keyboard. Is there any hope?

I went to the Palm support website. It seems that after any reset, including a soft reset, the Beam Receive function has to be re-enabled. Follow this path:

  • Applications==>Prefs==>Power
  • Beam Receive==>Off==>On==>Done
For more information: http://kb.palm.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE?New,kb=PalmSupportKB,CASE=obj(14838),ts=Palm_External2001

I also updated the driver for my Palm wireless keyboard.

I lost the Application feature on the Palm TX.How can I restore it back?


Do you know how you lost it? It should be hard programmed in the palm. It should be accessible by pressing the home key once or twice.
If I'm misunderstanding you and Application is an icon that you haven't personally deleted then your handheld may be in a different category than what you want. Tap the word at the top righthand corner of the screen and a drop down menu should show itself. Tap the top option which should display all icons installed (but not on a SD card) and hopefully that'll get things cleared up.
Hope this helps!

Tx will no longer sync with outlook 2003 or outlook 2007 calendars. Software reinstalled, tx reset, latest updates for syncing with outlook 03 and outlook 07 loaded, still won't sync to outlook calendar...


I would recommend contact the palm free chat. Here is a link for that. I have a TX and have used the chat feature myself and always with good results. Scroll to the bottom of the page and then you will see Palm chat. From there click on chat now and follow the directions. Best wishes.

Remote Control Doesn't Work


You could pick up an IR tester. Your local electronics hobby store should have them. Also, you sound as if you have some electronics ability, you could do a search on the net and find a electronics hobby site and build yourself a tester. This is what I did. Now, in my 27 years of electronics I have never seen a bad IR section of a remote. the most common problem is broken solder connections. remotes get dropped, tossed, stepped on, etc... Open the unit up and look for bad solder connections. They do not have to have a physical break to be bad! If they are grey instead of shiny or if you see a ring around the lead then the connection is bad. Reflow all connections and clean all contacts. I would think that will get it back to a working conditon.

Dropped my camera


Take for repair - The cost will be about half the price of a new camera assuming that parts can be found. Get the new camera.
