Re: I need to change the battery

It might just be hot-glued on. Try using a small screwdriver, but do NOT use too much force. I've encountered stuck-down stuff and they are because they were hot glued.

I just bought a palm pilot m130.I have turned it on now i am very confused,what do i do !

You see, all that was left from the old Palm devices (had a Tungsten W myself, back in '04!) was acquired by HP, and they seem to have shrunk all informations into this page.

Really hope they might be useful to you, somehow.

Anyway, please, let me know if you need further informations.

How to replace lcd screen on palm treo 500

I have just managed to get the cover off my treo 500 it took a little work but all off and looks like no breakage the two screws under the battery cover are obvious (one covered with a little red sticker with "palm" printed on it... some time ago I thought this was a reset button when my 500 froze up lol) the harder part is removing the back top half (with the lens cover and speaker cover. On the edge nearest the battery (remove the battery first) there are a 3 small recesses between them (2 points) there are some small clips work your way around the whole top half cover un clipping 8 in total) I did this with a thin piece of plastic and a lot or care there are 2 clips each side one about 4mm from the corner with the battery cover each side and one just before the curved corner about 22mm up from the first ones. The last two are either side of the silver detail strip that is around the lens and speaker covers. Once removed there are two more t5 screws which lets you remove the black inner chassis.
Hope this helps someone!
Good Luck

How to Replace the Battery on a Palm Z22

The Palm Z22 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which, in theory, can be recharged an infinite number of times. In practice, however, the lifespan of a rechargeable battery is finite. Replacing the battery yourself is possible if you have some skill with tools and a bit of patience.

Difficulty: Moderate
Things You’ll Need:

* Star-bit screwdriver
* New z22 battery
* Palm z22

What to Do
Pull down on the back cover of your Palm Z22, and remove the cover from the device.there is a trick to it. The little translucent bezel surrounding the USB connector can be snapped out, revealing two T-5 (Torx) screws. Remove the bezel and the two screws and the other three sides will separate with some gentle prying as you have already discovered.

The best way to remove the bezel seems to be to slip a knife (or a thin fingernail) into the joint closest to the display. It's a tight fit but you don't have to separate it very far to get it to pop out.

The battery is not "user replaceable" - i.e. it is soldered in place, but you can buy one online if you're prepared to do the solder work.

Loosen and remove the screws from the Z22's casing using a star-bit screwdriver.
If there are tabs present on the circuit board, you will need to stop immediately. Consult with a technician about removing the tabs.
Find the battery. Move it out of the case so you can have better access to the power supply lead.
Pull the power supply lead from the battery. Grasp the base of the plug firmly and disconnect in one smooth motion.
Remove the old battery from the case and insert the new battery into the same position and with the same orientation.
Replace the rear cover on the Z22 and charge the new battery for at least four hours before use.
Tips & Warnings

* Use firm steady pressure to open the case. Sharp blows and delicate electronics do not mix.
* A star-bit screwdriver is not the same as a Phillips screwdriver. The star-bit has a six-flanged head which looks a little like an asterisk when viewed head-on.
* If your battery has a blue casing on it, do not attempt to change the battery.

How to Buy a Replacement Battery for a Palm Z22

The Palm Z22 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This means that you can use it forever, right? Well, no, because even rechargeable batteries wear out eventually. Since Palm currently does not offer replacement batteries, you will have to track one down yourself. Here is how to buy a replacement battery for a Palm Z22.

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You’ll Need:

* Palm Z22

Write down the technical specifications of the Palm Z22 battery. The battery is 3.7 volts and delivers 950 mAH.
Shop at your favorite local retailer, electronics store or battery specialty store. Take advantage of the sales staff’s knowledge in your hunt for a battery that is compatible with the Z22. Bring your Palm Z22 to the store to be sure that the battery fits.
Search for an online retailer who carries the Z22 replacement battery. Once you have found a couple of vendors that have the goods, shop for the best deal. Remember to include shipping costs into your decision.
Get information about return policies or money-back guarantees before shelling out any money. Returns may not be an option for the Z22 replacement battery due to the specific complications involved with lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
Tips & Warnings

* You will need a tool kit to change your battery. The screws on a Palm Z22 require a star-bit screwdriver to loosen the shell.
* Correct use of your battery charger will prolong the life of your batteries, whether the original issue or replacement.
* Be sure that your batter is compatible. You don’t want to fry the Z22 with a high-powered, incompatible battery.

If it needs to be charged, it can take up to 3 hours to do.  While it is charging you won't see any lights on the Palm.  Only the screen being turned on will indicate the charging level with the icon.

Try iSpin. Sometimes, programs are not in the Launcher screen, and you need another launcher to dig into the RAM and open it there. It has happened to me.
