Re: pda

Sounds like we have a little issue here. The first thing I would suggest, would be to use a different charger, maybe check to see if the electric cord is hooked up right. Try initiating a HotSync operation. Good luck!

Hello salvidor72,
It's more effective to use a charger than the usb adapter. The web site has a nice deal on a Palm Centro PDA Phone Home/Travel Charger:
You may also do a google search for palm centro charger. I hope this helps.
Have a great day, martyshaw152

LogPad function

I contacted the seller of the PDA and described to him the problem I was having with it. After swapping some e-mails, he determined that the PDA was defective and offered to replace it. I agreed to this and sent him the defective unit and he will ship me a new one. I have his e-mail address, so I can contact him if any problems with the new unit should arise.

Thanks anyway. I will definitely keep you in mind should I have any further trouble that I cannot otherwise resolve.

I just bought a palm Z22 PDA. I used the AC charger to charge the Z22 but when I attempted to attach the USB synch cable I noticed that the plug is different from the plug on the AC charger. The USB...

I have concluded that the USB synch cable is not the correct one for my Palm Z22 PDA. There is only one point of attachment on the PDA and it is different from the plug on the USB synch chord. This was the last Palm Z22 PDA in the store so I think that the store clerk rounded up leftover parts and components of previous PDA kits and tried to make a complete set out of it. I am going to return the PDA to the store (Staples) in the next day or two.
Thanks for your offer of help. I will contact you again in the future if I need help.

Tungsten E2 PDA battery

E2 has a great battery might not be it. Its not easyly replaceable like in some other models.

the battery can be replaced by a professional or by yourself.

The pda should work on charger? does it work while pluged in?
If it doesnt work while its pluged in theres something more seriour wrong with it.

You can try soft and hard reseting.

Instructions can be found in this pdf file

If you cant open pdf files you need to find yourself pdf reader, google pdf reader and get one.

If soft or hardreset have any effect and the device still doesnt work even on charger then it has a hardware issue and I recommend contacting palm or the place where you bought the pda and findout about repairs and possible price, may be high.

good luck and if theres anything else let me know.

1. Check the fuse in the charger's plug (if accessible). 2. Try plugging it in to a different wall socket to rule that out. 3. Try cleaning the plug that connects to the device with a lint-free cloth or a CD wipe. 4. Carefully try cleaning the power socket on the device with a cotton bud and (if you have one) an air duster. Post back if non if this helps.

No power

If you got it a few years ago, or leave it on charge for several days, you might need a new battery. If thats not the case, if you droped it the battery jumper may have come loose, to open the device just take a small hex key (you can buy a set at buck or two that is fine) and take out the screws. the jumper is holding the back plate on the device. Just press down on the conecter and see if it will turn on (the buttons/frame may pop out when you open it. The charger is the last possible thing to test if all else fails, get a multi meter and test the charger for something under 9 volts. If this doesnt work then just buy a new palm because palm is really hard to deal with.
