Question about Palm V

7 Answers

I'm trying to install the palm v software into a macbook

I spoke with one of your reps a couple of weeks ago. i have a 1999 palm v i've been using for years with a dell tower. recently i purchased a macbook and was asking how i could transfer this information into the macbook. the rep said to simply install the software in the mac, but when i try there is no installation icon. all i get when i open the disc icon for palm on the the desktop is a window showing me about ten different icons and none of them install.

It depends on the version of your Mac. What version do you have? If you have an older version your going to need Palm 4.1 and you can get that from Palm website. - Let us know how it works.

Even Palm does not support this device anymore, except to provide the manual online. But you can check their community forums and ask if any software is available for the mac.

You're talking about such an old device, support is doubtful. But good luck.

Because the CD that came with your device is an executable file and .exe file wont run on mac. You need to find the mac version of the software for you to run the device through mac.

Cant get online images with my palm tx, is it a java update


Most of the time it is a software update that is needed. Download the software from your installation CD or you can go to www.palm.com and click on support to get the newest version of the software. After that just hotsync it and it should work the way it was designed. If that doesn't work palm has a chat feature on their website to tey out where you can chat directly to a palm rep. Best wishes.

What is this software? This software lets you sync your Palm device with your computer, so your info is backed up and easily editable on your computer.
Keep your information up to date wherever you are. When you sync, any changes you've made to Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos are automatically added to your computer or your Palm device.
Palm Desktop is the desktop personal information manager. HotSync Manager controls synchronization. Both are included in a single download on this page.

My palm treo 680 turns itself off repeatedly


hi dear

BACK UP your Treo 650 software and data BEFORE doing the following.

1. RESET the Treo 650 back to default set by holding power buttom following by reset the treo.

2. There is a way to reset the voltage regulator in the Treo ; believe is by holding the RESET for > 3 seconds. Believe need to take out the battery in out during this process. Can't recalled the correct steps. This could could reset the Treo's power regulator.

3. TRY reinstall your palm software with minimun software or 3rd parties one, this software could be running in the back ground which drain the battery.

Try above steps might help.

Mine also got the same problem last two weeks, my treo could felt there is kind warm sensation if it took out from my waist pouch after leaving it for sometime on the table. BTW, the battery could felt quite warm also.

If yours also behave the same which I believed the Treo got some kind of contact problem which draw more power then usually does.

Now, mine got no more warm sensetion after carry out above steps. It gets better as Compared to last two weeks ago BUT not that good as compared previously when it can last 3~4 days after a full charge.

Good luck

NO SERVICE


I was told by a sprint rep. that it could be due to a software program or virus on your phone. i.e. mp3s, pirated software. My brothers phone was just replaced due to this problem, although it is an LG phone not Palm. Same trouble with the no service.

I have also had the same problem, and I discovered that it may be caused by a little sensor in the headphone jack which enables the external speaker. Sometimes it gets stuck in the "off" position. Try plugging in and removing the headphones, that should solve the problem.

USB device not recognized or has malfunctioned on hotsync


Last week, windoze started barking the same complaint at me. A hard reset (of my Tungsten E) solved the problem. Caution: A hard reset (keep the power button pressed while performing a normal reset. Only release power button, when Palm logo screen appears. The press up-key) delete ALL data (even the identity, i.e. hotsync ID) from your palm - so be sure to have a recent backup!
