When searching for wi-fi connection palms blacks

This is hard to say what it is for sure but I would think your problem is your battery needs replacement. The wifi works fine with a good battery but uses much more power than anything else so it can quickly drain an older battery. If it is older than a year or so it might be it. I have a lifedrive that will kill a battery within a few minutes on the wifi. When new I could use it for several hours. If you put it on the charger it should work normally if this is the case.

Will not turn on

hi thanks for using fixya!

If you cannot really turn on the power of your Imate, even if you are charging it, make sure you are using appropriate charger! Once you have a chance to turn the power, try to make a hard reset. Or better if still not charging, try to recharge it using your USB cable and connect it to your pc or laptop.

And about the battery, usually it will not last for a year, atleast 6 months we need to change the battery especially PDAs, to have the efficient performance of it. Try to buy a new battery and test it. If still not work, perhaps you have a problem with the charger.

Good luck! if you need further assistance, let me know!

Please rate my solution positively! thanks!

My Q cuts off calls and callers' IDs

Freddie quia,
Hi and thanks for asking us.

Before you take the Q into your local dealer you might try the following. First, reset the Q. There are muliple ways of doing this. First, I would try removing the battery for about 60 seconds. Then put the battery back in and turn on the phone. Also, maintain good battery care. The Q uses quite a bit of juice and the battery needs to be constantly maintained. You may try resetting the battery. The way to do this is to allow the battery to discharge completely. Then recharge it fully, then discharge it completely again. Do not leave the battery plugged into the charger past the time it is fully recharged. Doing this can damage your battery and reduce the life of your battery. Believe me from experience, when I did not take care of the batteries for my Q it did all kinds of weird stuff.

Second, make sure you have not added any new programs to the Q. You may even try removing all programs and reinstalling them. Start, settings, remove programs, select program to remove and select "yes".

If you are still having the problem, then you may have to try a master reset - Start, System Tools, Master reset. Caution: if you complete a master reset all of your personal information will be lost***

Now, if you fix the problem with the missed calls and caller id, and your sound still does not work, then they are two separate issues. Take a good look at all of your sound settings. I know you have probably already done this. but before you take your Q into the dealer at least make sure you have looked at yoru profiles and speaker settings. you can check your sounds by Start, sounds, then look through every option to make sure it is set to an appropriate setting to ring. If it is marked none, then you will not recieve a ring for that option. For profiles, go to Start, Profiles, choose outdoor for the loudest. You can also change what each profile sounds like: Start, Profiles, Menu, Edit. You can set your ring type, ring volume, etc.

I hope this helps :)

Red LED light means a major problem at the charging of the battery.

You have several options to repair it:

1. Leave several hours the PDA with not battery and unplugged from the AC power adapter, then put the battery and leave charging it.

It's more likely that the red light will appears again, but leave plugged it. Sometimes will start charging and blinking with orange color after 30 minutes or so. After that, it will work normally.

2. Use other good working battery to test it.

3. If the above two steps fail, then there is a good chance that the mainboard has a problem, and needs to be fixed or replaced.

Best regards,

Water damage; time for the graveyard?

I think the cost of a mobo and battery would end up costing more than a brand new pda.

If you are handy with a soldering iron, check the solder points for the battery and the ac port....don't know if they could have rusted or even lifted because of the water damage.

Aside from that, I wouldn't know what to check. I think it's amazing your pda works at all.

Also, there is a guy by the name of Chris Short...just google him. He does a lot of Palm repairs for reasonable prices, and he has good customer service.
