    I have the same problem, I follow the steps but instead of language it says... "Erase all data?"

    Am I doing something wrong?

Have you tried a hard reset? In case you need to know how...Hold Power button on Top of Palm down, then press reset button, then release reset button and continue to hold power button down until second Palm logo comes on screen and progress bar at the bottom of screen completes. If you release the power button and it asks which language you want to use you have done this correctly.

No CD; reinstalled from website ; trying to sync Palm; windows keeps asking for driver;which was downloaded with sync manager and desktop


Did you download the latest Manager for your OS?


1) Download the Desktop manager

2) manually reset the TX
While holding the Power button, use the tip of the stylus (or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device.
The RESET button may be somewhere else on the back of your particular device.
First you'll see a palmOne or Palm logo and a progress bar. Keep holding Power.
Then you'll see a grey circular Palm Powered logo. Now you can release Power.
When the warning appears, press Up to confirm the hard reset.
If a language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for your desktop software.

3) connect TX to PC and sync.

Hi! I bought a referbished TX from you in January of 2009 (I think). It has been working great. However, the other day when I turned it on, the digitizer wouldn't work. Buttons work, everything else...


Disclaimer: I'm just a tech answering you request. I don't know who sold you the TX.

Have you tried to reset the TX?

First, save your data:

then reset:

While holding the Power button, use the tip of the stylus (or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device.
The RESET button may be somewhere else on the back of your particular device.
First you'll see a palmOne or Palm logo and a progress bar. Keep holding Power.
Then you'll see a grey circular Palm PowereWhen the warning appears, press Up to confirm the hard reset.
If a language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for your desktop softwared logo. Now you can release Power.

Then sync it to you PC.

My Palm Tx powers up but turns off a few seconds later, then on and off, on and off...


It means that there is an error somewhere in there, so you need to hard reset or try these steps.
1. Wait for the Orange Palm image to pop up (it's the one that has the loading bar)
2. Hold up as the bar at the bottom of the screen loads.
3. Once the bar disappears, let go of up,
4. If your pda continues on, find any application that could be causing this problem and delete it.
5. Reset, and see if it will load on it's own. If not, repeat steps 1-4. Otherwise, problem solved.

Palm Tx problem after hotsync


I had the same issue, the palm is stuck in a loop,
I got mine out of this by pressing the power button while the palm was on the screen where the bar goes across the bottom, it asked me if I wanted to erase all data, I said yes, and it reboot normally, I went thru the setup, and all is o.k.
I did have to try this several times, but it eventually worked. Hope this helps, although it looks like this is an older question. I hope you have resolved it.

Its probably conflicting with some app. My palm has gone into infinite reset loops till I did a hard reset. Back up your data, and do a hard reset. (THIS WILL DELETE ALL DATA, AND RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS)
(hold the power button, and press the reset button, release the reset button (keep holding the power), wait till you see the ORANGE screen (after the loading bar), and release the power. )
