Question about Palm IIIx Handheld

Retreiving information off barely-functioning IIIx

Hi there - would love any insight into the following problem.
I've got a IIIx with a screen that barely works. The device can still charge, but sometimes the power button doesn't work either. (Great, I know)
When it was operational, it would automatically sync to my Mac when I docked it. But now, the 3-prong Mac connector (name escapes me) is outdated in favor of USB and Firewire.
I'd very much like to find a way to retreive the data stored on the machine, even though I've tried and failed before. Is there something I haven't tried, or someone who knows better?
Many thanks,
JC

Sorry to hear about your trusty little workhorse dying, but all is not lost, meaning your data. You'll just need to get a replacement sync cable that can somehow replace the old RS232 connection. You should be able to use the same cable that connects to the m100 without spending the extra money to buy the old Palm MacPac. Once you've got your data retrieved your new device (I assume you're addicted like the rest of us) should offer you more options. Otherwise you may want to consider getting a USB or Firewire expansion card.

Hi,

Based on your description, a couple of things you can try:
  • evaporator on the fridge side may need thawing/cleaning;
  • replace the Evaporator Cover Assembly. Samsung has long replaced this original design/component (Jan 2007);
  • check for fan/blower action. They may be frozen, stuck or providing insufficient air flow.
This page might shed additional insights/related information.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

They no longer send the insight to the usa because the car is a two seater. You can not buy a new 2006 any more u can only buy used. I bought my 2002 auto insight in 2003 it was brand new. Now I have 30000 mile on it. It only cost 18000 out the door and than with the rebate 2000 off my taxes. The dealer replace the battery pack last year other wise have had no problems with the car. I love that I get 55 mpg over all. Plus a lot of fun to drive for such a little car it has a lot of power.

Palm IIIx Screens Die


It is possible that screen connector got loose. My initial intermitent problem was that PDA wouldn't turn on properly, the screen would flicker and/or show grey area. On my palm IIIx I did remove the back cover and pushed the connector all the way in the slot and now it works just fine.

Startup problems


Hi,

Based on your post/description "barely make out the screen" you have a backlight problem which can either be the CCFLamp or the inverter that powers it. The problem may be component failure, heat related or cold solder, loose connection.

Since this would involve opening the screen display panel, electronic circuitry diagnosis and possibly component replacement, your best bet might be to seek the services of a qualified repair person. To give you an idea of the possible cost, pls refer to this site.

Should you venture into giving it a go for yourself, this site might be able to give you an idea how it is done. This link is a possible source of replacement components.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
