Question about Palm III
I have a Palm IIIx that hasn't been used in quite sometime. Replaced the batteries, performed a soft and hard reset but unit will not start. Any ideas??
You did it right, but are you sure the new batteries are fresh, and they are inserted correctly?
Double check. It is really easy to put the batteries in wrong if you haven't used the device in a while. And batteries can be bad, even if newly purchased.
If the Palm was working the last time you used it, being inactive wouldn't kill it. If the batteries that were in it all this time leaked, The leaking chemicals could damage the unit. But that would be pretty obvious when you took the old batteries out.
Once the batteries run down to zero, you would lose any data that was stored in in the. You would have to re-load it from a backup. Even so, it would boot up and take you to the setup screens when you turn it on with working batteries.
Make sure the batteries are OK. Sometimes, even brand new ones are defective.
