Hi, I had the problem after the battery was discharged for a long period. when i charged it and turned it on, i got the message "tap the center" but with no luck. i found out that the lipo battery in the palm was like inflated to double size and therfore was pressing on the backside of the screen, as i removed the back cover it vorked just fine ( if you want to turn it on when the back cover is off, there is a "sabotage" switch you have to press to make it operate, it is located just behind the on button)

The stylus is that little pokey stick that comes with the Palm.  Use it to tap the X on the screen.  It is an alignment program for the touch-screen.

Need instructions on a hard reset


On your handheld, launch the Prefs application. Under General, select Security.

If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your handheld.

Once the password has been set, remove the stylus. Disconnect your handheld from the AC charger, if connected.

On your handheld, hold down the Power button.

While holding down the Power button, use the stylus to press the RESET button on the back of your handheld.

  1. While still holding the Power button, the screen will show the Palm logo and a progress bar. Then the circular Palm Powered logo will appear. Release the power button when you see the Palm Powered logo.

  2. A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your smartphone. Press UP.
  3. You'll see a series of Palm logo screens, then a prompt to tap onscreen targets. The Factory Reset is complete

My palm Vx asks me to tap center of target but doesn't respond


If there is no response anywhere at any time then you probably have to replace the digitizer. Also if you have a plastic protector sheet take that off and try it.

When using palmtungsten e2 message appears "Reset memory Mgr.c line 3751 free handle"one of my program i cannot use. thanks help who do i contact


Hi,
The first thing to do is to make sure you have everything backed up on your PC. Then do a hard reset. Here are the directions for that:

1. Press and hold the power button.

2. While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus ( or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole on the back of your hand held.

3. Wait for the Palm2.gif Powered logo to appear, and then release the power button.

4. When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your hand held do one of the following:
a) Press UP on the 5 way navigator button on the bottom of your hand held to finish the reset and show the touch screen2.gif.
b) Press any other button to do a soft reset.

5. When prompted , tap to align the screen, and then set the language you want to use on your hand held. A screen appears showing the Palm logo and a progress bar. From there continue to set up your Palm and then do a hot sync. Best wishes....Hope this helps.

I forgot the password for mine, how can i get around this to cancel or even change the passwprd?


Hi,
If you have forgotten your password you should be able to use the password hint to figure out what it is. You can try a soft reset to see if that will clear the password but I am pretty sure this won't help. To do a soft reset use the tip of the stylus or something pointed like a paper clip and inset it in the hole on the back of your palm pilot. This will make the unit reset it's self. If this doesn't help then you must preform a Hard rest to continuing using your hand held. You need to make sure that you have all your information backed up on your computer as a hard reset will erase everything on your hand held. Here are the steps to do a hard reset:

1. Press and hold the power button.

2. While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus ( or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole on the back of your hand held.

3. Wait for the Palm Powered logo to appear, and then release the power button.

4. When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your hand held do one of the following:
a) Press UP on the 5 way navigator button on the bottom of your hand held to finish the reset and show the touch screen.
b) Press any other button to do a soft reset.

5. When prompted , tap to align the screen, and then set the language you want to use on your hand held. A screen appears showing the Palm logo and a progress bar. From there continue to set up your Palm and then do a hot sync. You should be able to reset a password if you want one. Best wishes....Hope this helps.

Zire won't come on


You need to follow the procedure to calibrate the digitizer.

If the screen does not respond to the stylus, then the digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.
