Question about Palm TX Handheld

1 Answer

Screen display has shrunk

For some reason my palm now only uses part of the screen for the main menu and most software. However, it does still let me show slideshow fullscreen photos. With the limited screen usage, I can no longer use the handy tap buttons on the bottom of the screen. What do I do? how do I get the full screen back?

Re: screen display has shrunk

Hi, i have as well a palm TX, have you already try with the reset button at the back?..if yes and the problem has not resolved, ill recomend you to try to hotsync your palm with your computer and then format the PDA, you can do this by holding the reset button and the power button at the same time and then release them when the formating screen is on.

I just bought a palm pilot m130.I have turned it on now i am very confused,what do i do !

You see, all that was left from the old Palm devices (had a Tungsten W myself, back in '04!) was acquired by HP, and they seem to have shrunk all informations into this page.

Really hope they might be useful to you, somehow.

Anyway, please, let me know if you need further informations.

I have an old palm pilot vx and I cant recalibrate the screen without a hard reset and losing all my info! Its stuck on the opening screen after a soft reset, because I can't get to the home page. The...

You can change the function of any of the buttons at the bottom to open a different application. Here's what I did. I never use the To Do button so I went to Pref and changed the To Do button from To Do to Welcome. Now if it needs to be recalibrated, I just press the To Do button and it opens the Welcome screen. I can still access To Do from the main menu if I want to use it.

Hi how do i put a backround on my phone

Hello edgar_25_06,

Putting a background on the palm centro phone could either mean adding a background picture or changing the background color. If changing the color is is desired then its simple:
•Select the the 'System' category in the drop down menu at the top of the main screen.
•Open the Prefs application.
•Select 'Color theme' (near the bottom of the Prefs options).

The Color theme option displays a list of many different screen color settings. Each one of the color themes can be selected and tested on the centro until you find the one you like. Adding a picture for a background is a different matter. I haven't found out how to do that yet.

I thank you for giving a rating to this solution if it has been helpful.

Have a great day,

More applications than I should have

On your main screen touch the menu icon (bottom right in your graffiti box). This will open your drop down menu. Touch "delete" and a list of programs, etc will appear. Select one at a time and then press delete.
Hope this helps

I would erase the TX memory and reload the software.

The TX memory can be erased by pressing the reset button in the back of the unit while holding down on the power button. Press yes to confirm delete.

Reload Palm software from CD.

Treo will not complete call

Try with a new battery, also the connection cable between the battery and the main board uses to loose contact, try unplugging and plugging again the cable which connects the battery with the main board. A symptom that the battery is loosing power is that the screen flickers while making a call.
