Ensure that you have a good set of batteries within the Palm Pilot. If you are not sure if the batteries are good, place a known good pair within the Palm Pilot to see if it will turn on.
If the Palm Pilot still does not turn on and you are pressing the small green button (power button), ensure that your contrast is turned up. The contrast wheel is on the left hand side of the Palm Pilot; attempt to rotate the wheel both ways.
** Doing the below steps may cause the Palm Pilot to lose its information; however, could allow the device to turn on properly**
Attempt to perform a soft reset by pressing the reset button two times in succession, and then attempt to turn on the Palm Pilot.
If you are still not able to turn on the Palm Pilot, remove all the batteries and any other power sources connected to the Palm Pilot and perform another soft reset on the Palm Pilot as explained above. Once completed, attempt to place the batteries back within the Palm Pilot and see if you are able to get a display.
If after doing all the above steps you are still not able to get the Palm Pilot to come up, your Palm Pilot will need to be serviced. See 3COM company page for information on contacting 3COM / Palm.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

My Sony DCR-TRV330 doesn't want to turn on at all. I've changed bateries and even tried to turn it on while connected to the charger but still doesn't turn on.

You might try pulling out the battery while connected to the charger, and then turning it on.

Or you could try resetting it while connected to the wall power. That worked with my old palm pilot :) When you open the screen of your camera, the reset "hole" is located directly below the "display" button.

Also, remember to press the little green button down and turn the "power" knob when you are trying to turn it on.

Absolutely no promises that my "solutions" will work, but you can try them just in case.

The palm pilot will not turn on even when charged overnight

this could be a problem on the unit switch, try to test it by connecting your unit into your pc, and check if the unit will still power ON.

My palm pilot m515 wont turn on or charge

try turning it on while its on the charger .. if that works then you might need a new battery .. if it doesnt then do a "reset" ... unscrew the top off the stylus and use it to push the reset button on the back (top center) ... if that doesnt get it going then you can do a hard reset but that will erase all your information (like telephone numbers and such) ... you do a hard reset by holding down the on/off button while pushing the reset .. if it works on the charger but quits when on battery then you need a new battery ..

M515 Palm Pilot

here is your manual in PDF form

if the unit was new then you would charge it for about 10 hours .. but since its not likely new then it doesnt hurt anything to just leave it on charge ... you can even operate the palm while its charging .. over night charge should be enough to get pretty close to full ... the palm internally automatically turns off the charge when the battery is full .. so you dont have to worry about over charging .. if the unit wont come on then you can do a "reset" (back at top)

My palm pilot will not turn on

Has it ever worked? If new, return immediately. If it did work before then either the battery or the charger are the likely causes for this problem. If you know someone with a similar model then you can swap these to test.

Palm treo 650 wont power up

It may be past the point of turning on.
If this is the case, if you connect it through the USB cable to your computer for a little while, it can get a small charge.

Trickle charging
Some Palm devices have the ability to "trickle charge" from a USB port on a PC or Mac. This means that it receives a very small amount of charging from the USB port, even if it is not connected to its AC charger. If your device is capable of this function, the charging time will be significantly longer for a trickle charge (depending on the power rating of the PC USB port). However, the device may not charge at all on an unpowered USB hub (or for example off off a keyboard).

If you can then power it on afterwards, connect it to the regular power charger.
