Re: Incorrect date

Some Palm handhelds will "lose" days if they are not turned on for a period of time. This can be corrected with a soft reset. If this happens to you on a regular basis, you can use DayLossFix Hack to keep your Palm on the right date:

My WiFi keeps going off even when I turn it on

I assume that you mean the WiFi connection on your Kindle keeps going off and that you have checked that other devices connecting to the same WiFi router / access point are not experiencing the same problem, only the Kindle?

If it is only your Kindle having this problem, then it may be worth checking that you have the latest version of software on the Kindle which you can do by visiting the Kindle Support web link in this update - select your correct Kindle device then follow the steps to check that you have the most up to date software installed.
The Kindle Keyboard should update itself automatically but can also be done manually if necessary.

If that doesn't work, then you may need to Reset the Kindle by pressing the Power button for 20 seconds - this will do a re-boot of the Kindle OS which may cure the problem is it is caused by some temporary problem.

Have you checked what your battery status is when the WiFi goes off - this may happen when the battery levels get very low - the WiFi will add extra drain on the battery and cause the battery life to be reduced if left on full time.

How To Save Battery When Using Your iPhone 4s

The iPhone battery received the most troubleshooting requests by a wide amount during FixYa's FixMas report last year, accounting for 40% of user issues. With the newly released iOS 5.0.1 failing to fix the issue for many iPhone owners struggling with battery life, I figured it would be a good idea to break down some of the best ways to get battery life out of your phone.

The vast majority of these actions take place in the "Settings" section of the iPhone. They should be done in conjunction with one another in order to maximize battery saving effects:

  • Turn off location services
  • Turn off push notifications
  • Turn down screen brightness
  • Turn off Bluetooth and turn off auto-search for Wifi
  • Do not leave your phone charging overnight-- when your phone reaches 100% battery power, take it off the charger
  • Lock your phone regularly and enable auto lock (the shorter it takes for your screen to lock the better)
  • Fetch new data manually (emails especially)
  • Turn off Siri (4s users only)
  • Turn off time zone settings

Please keep in mind the historical issues of this phone when attempting to solve your battery issues-- while the phone itself is a work of art and functions wonderfully, the battery is a huge issue and something that will be a problem for you even after you implement these fixes into your daily routine.

In other words, these tips are merely a way to get more juice out of your phone throughout the day. They will not fix your battery issues outright.

That is something only an OS update from Apple will be able to accomplish.

Hello, i have a hp Hp Ipaq 5455 and want to use a wi-fi connection at home and traveling.I can see the wireless networks and it says connected after i write the secret password that was given to me from...

I would say that either your password is not right either wrong or in the wrong "keyslot"or your hp isn't getting the proper numbers from the router. Since you can see them and connect we can be almost certain there is nothing wrong other than a setting.

Past that a incorrect password or on some wifis incorrect case of letters or wrong position would do exactly this. Basically every time your hp (or any other device) sends data to the wifi it will send the password info. It doesn't need to have the password to see or even connect but to get the data past what is basically a firewall it needs the key which is the password etc. Usually the case doesn't matter for most wifi routers but on some it does all the time and on others it does if they are setup that way. I've been caught by that more than once as case is unusual. To any electronic device Password and password are two totally different things. As well there are normally 4 key slots or positions that password is associated with. You can actually have 4 different pass codes as a result. And again even if the password is the same if it isn't in the right slot then the router will ignore it as it is incorrect. Basically you have to keep trying to enter it in while trying any variations. You can also yell and call it names. Doesn't help but can make you feel a bit better about this irritation ;-)

Last thing is that a lot of networks use what is called DHCP service or Dynamic Host Control Protocol. All that nonsense means is that when you get connected the router assigns the numbers to the device. That is how it is supposed to work. What happens on a few handhelds is that this does not want to work so what you have to do is manually enter in the numbers. You need a ip# (something like, a net mask (usually a gateway number which is the ip of your router (will be something like and then you need the DNS numbers for your ISP which will be sim in layout to the previous examples.Once you enter these in you will be able to connect to the lan and out to the internet. I still use my Palm Lifedrive and it has this issue on some routers. On the ones that I have manually entered them in the network runs faster so it is worth doing.

So you need to keep checking the password and slot (till it hurts) as well as considering putting in the numbers manually. If you need help with that you can reply here and either myself or someone else can assist with that.

Date keeps resetting to 01 Jan 2005 why?

When the battery dies there is an internal battery that will keep the device running so that all of the programs will still have functionability. Once that internal battery dies the date/time stamp resets back to the factory settings which is January 1, 2005. To keep this from happening you will need to install a time patch onto the device.

I cannot get past the align screen page is there a way of bypassing it?

If it just keeps asking you to calibrate, then that means the touch screen is faulty.

Ultronic lcd clock with a stylus tucked in back of clock

This thing set under my bed, lifeless til I was looking for something else and decided it was time to get this clock working!

(Use the stylus pen for best results) After putting in two fresh batteries (or hit the reset button if your batteries are fresh). This will reset the clock and the 'clock' icon in the upper lefthand corner will be blinking. Now press and hold the display area where the hour of the day is displayed. The entire time will start blinking. Now start tapping on the blinking hours to increment the clock slowly to the correct hours (it will cycle all the way thru military time and regular time, so choose what you desire). Press and hold with the stylus to increment quickly. Do the same with the minutes, that are blinking too. When time is correct, tap the 'clock' icon once. The 'clock' icon will still blink, which I believe is correct operation.

To set the date, tap on 3rd icon down from the top left (it looks like a little calendar). This will put you into the date section of the clock (if you do nothing, it will cycle back to the clock, after ten seconds, as a default). Before it cycles back to the clock, press and hold with the stylus pen right below the word 'DATE', until the the entire displayed date starts blinking. Tap the first two digits of the year to go down in years and tap the right two numbers of the year to go up in years. Tap on the month number to increment; do the same with the date number. When all date entries are correct, either tap the 'calendar' icon, or let the clock sit for ten seconds: it will cycle back to the clock.

I guess you can set the alarm in a similar method.

Hopes this helps!

Losing data

Did your Palm happen to lose battery power?

You can check this by looking at the date/time under World Clock.

If the year is incorrect, it's likely you lost battery power.
If you sync again, it will ask you to choose a profile and select your current one.

Hope this helps!

Corrupt Date Book Fixed

Updated Instructions Simple fix for a corrupted Date Book sync error (at least it worked for me on my Treo 650). 1). Turn off 'Show Calendar Event' in the Phones 'Options - General Preferences' menu. 2). Turn off phone. 3). Set the Date/Time to the maximum limits (12/31/31) in Preferences. 4). Open the Calendar and view the maximum day 12/31/31. 5). Select 'Purge - (Delete events older then 1 week)' in the Calendars Options menu. 6). Reset the Date/Time to the current day in Preferences. 7). Hotsync (Desktop Calendar overwrites handheld). 8). Hotsync again to make sure you don’t get the error (Synchronize the files). That’s it. =============================== Outlook Calendar The attempt to open the database failed. Date Book application database is not found. Please invoke the Date Book application on the handheld once and re-synchronize. OLERR:05-0001 OLERR:0D-0004 OLERR:0D-0001 - Not Synchronized Outlook Calendar synchronization failed OLERR:15-0002 OLERR:06-0001 ===============================
