Question about Palm Tungsten T5 Handheld

Palm Tungsten t5 WiFi

I cannot get a WiFi connection on my Palm Tungsten T5. I have done a hard reset & re-installed the software several times but no luck. It always says "No networks found". That's as far as it goes. It used to work until I sent my Palm in for warranty repair, and they sent a replacement unit. I'm pretty sure that's when the problem started.

Re: Palm Tungsten t5 WiFi

I suspect that you're in fact holding a Palm TX and not a T5 as the T5 does not have WiFi. If you're using the Palm SD WiFi adaptor, do a hard reset without the card.

(hold down the ON/OFF button whilst using the reset pin to press the reset button. You'll be asked if you are sure you wish to reset. You'll then be prompted to choose the language caliberate the screen etc..)

After that. Go and download all the updates and drivers from Palm Web site.

Palm tungsten t5 won't boot past the Palm Powered

When you see the first screen (the orange one) hold the UP button as the bar moves across the bottom of the screen. Let go right before the screen goes to the silver logo. If it continues and opens Prefs, then you need to delete the program causing it to reboot. If that doesn't work, do a Hard Reset. A Hard Reset will erase everything on your T5, so only do it if you have to. Hold the Power Button while you push the reset button. Continue with the instructions to finish erasing your device.

Upgraded from tungsten e to tungsten t5 did first hotsync but subsequently get error message line:4038 error launching application


From Palm Support:

When you upgraded from the E to the T5, did you precisely follow the upgrade directions? These steps include the following actions:

Did you install the new Palm software that came with the T5? Did you rename the Backup folder on your computer before you synced the T5?

If you did not rename the Backup folder you have installed system and preferences files from the E that are not compatible with the T5 and NVFS.

Advise that you hard reset to return the E to factory condition and precisely follow the upgrade procedures.
Hope this helps.

T5 is frozen on the "Palm Powered" screen

Remove the battery and let the palm sit for a day, reconnect the battery and do a hard reset. To remove the battery, you need a Torx T5 screwdriver. Carefully remove the cover making a note of the location of all the buttons in the case. The battery is connected by a mini 2 pin connector, just disconnect the battery by gently wiggling the connector and pulling.

On/off switch

I am pretty sure this is a software problem, not a switch problem. The T5 is the Ford Edsel of the Palm range, with many unsolved bugs. I fixed this problem by using shortcut for ON and OFF.

Switch ON:
Use one of the 4 application buttons. The default house button opens the Palm at the menu, but you can change any of the buttons in
Preferences > Personal Buttons
to open whatever application is convenient.

Switch OFF
Preferences > Other Offstroke
check Enabled, and Pen Stroke or Screen Tap (or both), and then select the gesture that will turn off the Palm. I use "Screen Tap in top left corner" to turn off.

It's not a real solution, just a workaround. I also flushed and reset the T5 and reloaded from backup, and the problem went away for a while, then came back. It gradually takes longer and longer to switch on and off. There is some bug in the OS, but Palm doesn't seem to care about it.
