Help! with sharp el-6710s electronic organizer

I opened my EL-6710s, the data screen was blank, so I assumed the battery was dead. Unfortunately I took the old battery out before reading the TINY print that says to leave it IN and then replace with a new battery in the second slot.

Now when I turn it on it flashes Data Problem PRESS RESET! and there is a tiny "s" in the lower left side of screen. I press reset then the screen flashes RESET OK? I press ENTER and the screen goes right back toflashing Data Problem PRESS RESET! NO matter which button I push the Data Problem keeps flashing on the screen.


I thought it might work to put the old battery back in and start over however when I turned it on, DATA PROBLEM PRESS RESET was on the screen, which was not there before I removed the old battery.

I have had this unit FOREVER (maybe 18 yrs) it has always performed like a champ, so you can well imagine my entire world is on this organizer. If anyone has ANY ideas I am open to them ALL at this point. HELP!!!!!! Please

You may need to reset the organizer's operating system. This procedure is not designed to delete any data; it is simply to reset the operating system.

Some default settings such as time, date, and start up displays will be lost. The data that is stored within the organizer's various applications will not be deleted.

Follow these simple steps:

While keeping the ON button depressed with your thumb, flip the entire unit over so you are now viewing the underside of the organizer. Use a ball point pen and press and release the reset button on the underside of the unit.

Turn the unit over so you are viewing the LCD display. You should see a message that reads similar to the following phrase "Delete All Data - Y/N". After seeing this message, release the ON button and press the letter "N" to indicate you DO NOT want to delete data.

If a reset does not solve your specific problem, please contact the Sharp on will need to call either 1-630-378-3590 or 1-800-310-3012 .hope this helps

Completely dead. new battery won't work. need to retreive info


Probably the firmware of the mobile is corrupt better that you take it to a Palm sevice centre and get it repaired.
There would be a loss of data if the firmware is changed.

I have a Palm z22 that won't keep a charge. My


The Palm Z22 is, I have found out, a bullet-proof design in regards to reliably keeping your valuable "DATA" safe over time. The Engineers at PALM really did a good job of Data integrity compared to many other devices. HOWEVER -- there are 3 common problems with the growing AGE of the Z22, 2 are with the dying batteries, and 1 with the years of wear and tear on the touch screen. The battery is a typical square, thin, modern Lithium battery, wired in with two wires ( + positive, red, and - negative, black ) that can be
taken out and replaced if you take the unit apart. In a brand new, in-the-box package, the battery is dying simply from old age. If the Z22 was used heavily, the constant cycling from dead to fully charged wears out the battery even more. The Touchscreen is a thin layer of plastic stretched over a sheet of glass, with a tiny air gap in between. Over time, the top plastic layer deforms - with hot and cold, air pressure changes, and being pressed by wearing the unit in a pocket, purse, briefcase, or even in a drawer with pencils, pens, and staplers etc. It is very important to have a hard cover over the screen! Other than just having the battery loose its weak charge continually, there is a problem with the unit getting into a state of BLACK SCREEN - it does not charge and remains "apparently" dead, since the logic circuits are in an invalid state, and it can only be reset if the battery dies COMPLETELY to remove the power on the logic circuits.
I have covered the topics of the battery problems, the data problems, the screen problems, and the disassembly, maintenance, and security, and how to get data off the unit, particularly to the new Windows Operating Systems that were developed AFTER the Z22 was no longer made. This is at
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
I have ripped apart the Z22 repeatedly, and posted pictures of the various steps to service these units. There are links to aftermarket software to transfer data, and examples of how to USE the Z22, for valid purposes. This should be a one-stop source for any information or troublehooting the Z22, for those who have the Z22 and want to keep it operating!
good luck

Hello. My life drive is approx 3 years old. Today, for the first time, it went totally "dead", not even a soft reset would get it working. Back home, I put it in the cradle. Eventually (it took several...


That is your battery telling you it has had enough. Usually they last about 2 years. You can buy a replacement battery from about $15 and up. Usually these replacements have more capacity than the originals and so you get much longer usable run time.

You can send it in to get it replaced but it is a very simple job to do yourself. You just need a 5.5 torx screwdriver to take 4 screws out and open the case. Undo one connector remove the old battery and then put the cover back on and the screws back in. Carge overnight and you are up and running.

If you do a search on google or bing you will find dozens of places that sell the battery and/or will replace it for you.

If you look at this link it shows the battery and shows a video on how to replace the battery. Have a look at that and it should give you an idea if you feel comfortable to fix it yourself.

Screen goes blank and requires a soft reset with "memo"


I believe that this problem relates to the BlackScreenOFDeath or BSoD - which is caused by a low or weak battery allowing the CONTROL Logic circuits to get into an invalid state where the ON/OFF/SLEEP/CHARGE/ FUNCTION transistors are niether on nor off. I would recommend getting a new battery as soon as possible. Doing a SOFT RESET "may" get you temporarily going again. DO NOT do a HARD RESET !. I have posted many discussions on the Z22 that you may find helpful, on my tiny website,
http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
One other possibility, is to take apart the Z22, and wipe the buttons and traces with a soft damp cloth to remove oils, water, and possible spilt liquids from the touch/snap/button/discs areas. Even the tiniest trace of conductive liquids will short out the logic circuits, causing "unknown: states on the control circuits.
My answer on the BLack ScreenofDeath, is as follows:
__________________________________________________
The Z22 suffers from 3 problems. One of these is the Black Screen of *****. I got a used Z22, and over the years discovered this problem. The small battery was a perfect fit of power and size when manufactured, decades ago, but, time alone has deteriorated the capacity, so that a "NEW" , sealed-in-the-box Z22 today, has a weak, dying battery that needs replacing. These are $10 free shipping from China. The BSoD seems to be caused by a dip in power from the battery to the LOGIC CIRCUITS that control the ON/OFF/SLEEP/CHARGE, etc states of the Z22. If the logic gets out of sync, the unit is in an INVALID state, will not charge, nor respond to the LOGIC buttons on the front - these buttons are NOT the standard ON/OFF buttons from the past that mechanically connected or diss-connected power. All the buttons on the Z22 are touch snap disks that are connected to transistors, to flip logic states. THUS, is the power in any of the transistors gets low, the transistor is neither ON nor OFF, and the control circuits are in a messed-up state. Or another way of looking at it, the ON button is a logic gate on a transistor network, and the only way to activate the "ON" logic state, is with full power to the circuits! -- the power on the Z22 is ALWAYS ON. . . The screen may turn off, and the chips may go into "sleep" mode, but the Z22 is always on. SO if there as a weak battery, you may get the random Black Screen of *****. The GOOD news, is the the DATA and programs that you purchased are incredibly SAFE, as long as you do NOT do the HARD RESET (which someone suggested ! (NOT ) ). I have ripped apart the Z22 dozens of times, and subjected it to freezing and heating and all sorts of horrible things, the data has always been 100% reliable, -- stored in permanent memory. There is a quick way to get rid of the BSoD - you have to open the unit and cut one of the two battery wires, wait 2 minutes to kill the logic circuit power, then re-connect. I added a switch on the Z22, just for this purpose. I would recommend, if you get the Z22 re-powered, to get a new battery as soon as possible. This should clear the BSoD for a while. See my tiny website :
http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.htm
There are many photographs and step by step procedures to try to get the data off the device, maintain the Z22, get parts, and use the Z22 with the new 64 Bit Windows computers. The BEST way to use the Z22 would be to get an old Widows 32 bit laptop (ie WinXP), and simply connect the Z22 in a standard way using the software that it was designed for... The new patches to 64 bit machines, are very limited, and many previous features do not work.
So the bottom line - all your data, information, and programs are safe. You simply have to reset the LOGIC CIRCUITS (this has nothing to do with the PALM Z22 SOFT and HARD Resets !) - it has to do with disconnecting the power from the battery, or waiting until the battery is COMPLETELY DEAD ! (which can take a long time! )...
Good luck

Phone Wont Turn On


unfortunately, you'll have to do a master reset on your phone. You'll loose all of your data. TO do this.. power off the phone. Then press the center select button (silver button on navigation pad) then power on the phone while keeping the sliver button pressed. You should get a Master reset prompt.. click Yes.
