If you have hotsynced your Visor with a PC (or Mac), the first time you sync your Visor to that computer, it should restore all the data from the last hotsync to the PDA. This is one big reason that it makes sense to sync your PDA on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, if you never used the hotsync function for your Visor, you may not be able to recover any of your data. This model Handspring Visor requires good batteries or else everything in its memory will randomize and you will lose all stored information. There is a small capacitor in the Visor that provides enough reserve power for about 30-60 seconds when you pull out the batteries. It's for this reason that Palm recommended pulling out only one battery at a time when changing to a fresh set. That minimized the amount of time that the PDA would be without power. That same advice applies equally to Visor PDAs.
I have had that problem. There's a little button on the back of the Palm which resets the whole thing. Don't worry, you won't lose any data. I've had to do it a few times. The button is very tiny and you have to use a pen point to press it.
Have you tried a hard reset? Just remember a hard reset will delete everything on your device. All your
data will be deleted, and formats, preferences and other settings are
restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a hard reset
unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything. Here is a link with the directions:
The battery needs to be replaced. They are sold on Ebay but if you need to do any kind of soldering then the best bet is to take it in and have it done by an authorized repair. It is worth the little extra you will pay.
Best way to prevent data loss on palm m100, replacing the battery before it drained completely and replacement must be done in 10 seconds. Another way to prevent keep backup on computer side. You need to use same user profile in order to get previously stored PIM data on computer
