Re: brand new Palm TX wont let me set the date to this...

Are you both sure that under the World Clock icon that the current date/time is set to the right year?
Sometimes the dates get set back incorrectly if the Palm dies.

My computer that I sync my Palm TX to was "wiped" clean. What steps would I need to take to be able to resync my Palm TX to the computer and not loose everything I have stored on my Palm TX?

Palm Desktop and HotSync won't destroy the data on your device if you have a fresh copy that doesn't have your data backed up. That said, however, look for free utilities that will back up your TX's data to an SD card should HotSync wipe your TX as well.

My palm e2 screen brings a frozen screen even after reset and no button whatsoever works, it can reset but freezes on the screen again,that is 0 alerts. even the power button does not work, only reset,...

You can try doing a hard reset. 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 the link for directions for the Hard Reset:

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:

If that doesn't work then try the free palm chat service they offer. Here is a link to that:

When trying to sync, error message reads (sys 0505)(0,841).What can I do? For Palm TX handheld

Try to perform a System Reset (see article linked below). If it works to break the loop, you should then be able to delete the offending "My Palm" software and perform a Hotsync to backup your data to your desktop.

If that doesn't break the loop, you'll have to perform another Hard Reset. Sometimes, a Hard Reset takes a couple of tries to get it right, since it's easier to do it wrong than to do it right.

This article discusses the various types of Reset for different Palm devices:

Until you break the TX out of its loop, you won't be able to get the data from it.

To see the Palm OS version running on your TX, enter the Menu, select Info, then Version.

To Get Out Of A Loop:
  1. Perform a SYSTEM RESET by doing the following:
a) Press the UP Button
b) And THEN press and release the RESET Button
c) When you see the second Logo (Palm Powered) release the UP Button
d) Now check if your SYSTEM RESET worked by going to Beam Receive. If it goes back to Off even after you put it to On it means you were successful

2. Now Perform A SOFT RESET by pressing and releasing the button in the back once

  1. After a soft reset, a logo screen appears, followed shortly by a Preferences screen asking you to set time and date.

  1. If a soft reset does not break it out of the loop, you may need to try one of the other resets below.

  1. Do an INCOMPLETE HARD RESET by holding down the power (on/off) button on your device.

  1. While holding down the power button, Press and release the reset button on the back of your handheld device

  1. Keep the power button pressed and release it when the “Palm Powered” logo appears.

  1. A message will now appear warning that you are about to “Erase All Data”. And this will happen if you press UP or DOWN.

  1. Instead you press left or right to begin a soft reset, leaving your data intact.

  1. Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Sorry this was so long, I tried to put everything down that might help you.

Palm tx wont turn on

When the battery is discharged, it is best to charge it overnite.

Have you reset the TX?
Hold the power button down and push in the reset button on the back of the TX with the stylus. Hold the power button down until you get the screen where it ask you if you want to erase/reset the unit. click yes to reset.
Then when it comes back up, re-sync it with the Palm Desktop on your computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Treo 650 (cingular) and Outlook calendar

Its the substandard conduits that come with the 650. Hi - my issues were different than yours,but similar in that bottom line, my calendar data wasn't syncing correctly with Outlook. I've been dealing with this problem for the past 4 weeks. Sprint's technical support was useless, as was palmone. For 5 years, I have successfully synced my Palm Smart phone to palm desktop at home, and outlook at work - (4 different phones, 4 different companies). It dawned on me - for the past 4 palm devices, I was provided Chapura conduits... The 650 didn't come with them... GUESS WHAT. I bought Chapura Professional XT and all the issues I was having (they were too copious and too weird to go into here) were solved, in one measly synchronization. ALL of them. Don't wast ANY more of your time... Navigate over to Chapura's website and get one of the conduit programs -= trust me... You'll be glad you did.
