Fails to stay turned-off

My Palm has recently started turning itself back on a few minutes after powering off. It then gets into an endless power-on, tim-off cyle. Consequently the battery discharges quickly. Maybe conincidence, but hot sync over WiFi no longer works. ANy thoughts greatly appreciated!!!

Re: Fails to stay turned-off

Resetting palm to default mode should fix this, there is a program installed that is running in background mode that is responsible for this, your job is to identify this program and remove it from memory and your backup or archive directory on your pc. good luck.

Re: Fails to stay turned-off

Hey there I Think it has to do with the hot sync not working anymore, the WiFi is looking for sync so it turns on the pda, in order to avoid it just enter in your setings for automatic networks search or somthing like this and disable it Good day

Endlessly connecting

you might need to check the bluetooth device you are connecting to is working and if it is turn it off and try it again, if no luck turn them both of and disconnect any additionals such as battery sim etc for a minute and switch them both on again

My Palm Tungsten e2 keeps turning itself back stays off for about 15 seconds after pushing the power key and then comes on again. Anything I can do?

I too was having this problem all of a sudden. I found another post about an apparent bug in the Palm OS. Do you have a birthday or appointment in the calendar with reminders that started in 2009? Try removing the reminders or making them start in 2010. I did that and my Palm now stays off when I power it off.

Have to reset Palm TX to power on sometimes

I have a palm TX and it usually just sits for a minute or two when I use blazer. I have also found out that the pda will always reset itself and it only freezes when it has a lot going on. It stays frozen for a while, but eventually unfreezes. As for the home button, it's probably worn down. My power button and my up button have almost completely stopped working.

Hello, have a Palm 755p Treo screen just keeps flashing

There are multiple reasons for the phone to go into an endless loop.

Fix #1 - Soft Reset - Take out the battery. On the back of your phone, pop the cover off, remove battery, place battery back in and it will show each screen once and power on normally.

Fix #2 - Hard Reset - To do a hard reset, hold the power button while you replace the battery and then release it when the Palm logo appears.

Fix #3 - Hammer

My palmOne Tungsten-EZ When I turn of my palm it turns back on by itself. I can't get it to stay off.

The palm in question was purchased in 2005. It was exposed to rain just before it started the problem. The sales people at Staples (where I purchased the product ) said the battery usually lasts approx. 4 years. So I decided to buy a replacment one, With a Alluninum case to help to protect it from weather conditions.

Won't shut down

There are a couple of things you can try.

1- Poke the hole in the back where it says reset.
This will in essence reboot your Palm.

2- Make sure the Auto-Off after: is set to 2 minutes by going into the Preferences, Power section.

3- If your Palm is not holding charge, connect the Palm to charge it. Turn the Palm on and make sure the battery at the top has a lightning bolt going through it. This will let you know it is charging. Then, push the reset hole in the back to reset the Palm. This should reset the charging mechanism in the Palm and allow your battery to hold power.

If the Palm does not hold power after step 3, you may need to see about getting it serviced.

PDA intermitently powers up then freezes on "Palm Powered" screen

I had the same issue. What you need to do is to hold the power on/off button than press the reset button. The screen turns off (get black) than the will ask you to make a hard reset (which end up deleting all datas). The Palm will power on like the first time you turned it on after you bought it. Than depending which version you have it will possible ask you which language you will like to have as default. After selecting you neet to setup the rest. If this is done you sync it all data will come back :-)
