    My Tungsten will not work without being plugged in. When I unplug it, the screen goes dark, and it will not respond. When I plug it back in, The palm logo loops and it does not boot up. I must do a hard reset and erase the data in order to get it to work again while plugged in.

I have had this type of fault with other types of PDA's. It turned out to be the battery. I sugest to try a new battery to see if this fixes the fault.

If it is not the battery, the fault may be a problem in the internal power converter area of the circuit board.

Sony ebook Reader is Frozen, Not charging

The Sony Reader used a special type of display; the LCD can retain an image without having power. It takes power while changing the pages. In most of the cases, if the power is fully discharged, the LCD will keep the last image that was displayed it makes an impression that the Reader is frozen. However, the Actual thing is, the screen retains the last image on the screen and there is no power to change the pages. These type of situations can be resolved by charging the Reader sufficiently.
Each step in my solution is a possible resolution. Hence I suggest thatyou perform each step and check the operation.
  1. Charge the battery fully by connecting to a computer or by using a compatible AC Adaptor. It may take a few minutes (up to 15 minutes) to displaythe charging symbol if the Reader is fully drained in its last use.
  2. Once the reader is charged fully (at least 45 minutes), slide the power button to turn ON.
  3. Perform a softreset. We can perform a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the Reader.
  4. After the RESET button has been pressed, slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader device again. If the Indicator light nextto the power button on the Reader device is yellow, the unit is attempting to start up. If this is the case, allow it a few moments to complete startup.
  5. If the Reader is still not charging up properly, connect the Reader to computer or AC Adaptorand then press the reset button.
  6. Disconnect the Reader device from the computer (if applicable) and then slide the POWER switch to activate the Readerdevice. Check if the Indicator light next to the powerswitch on the Reader device is yellow (indicating it is turning on) and if the unit is responding.
    If the unit isstill frozen, connect it again to the computer or AC adapter and while connected,check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the Reader device is red. If this light is red , allow the Reader device tocharge for one hour sothere is sufficient charge for troubleshooting.

    If the issue persists, perform a hard reset to resolve the issue. Please follow the steps to perform a hard reset:


    Under certain circumstances, moisture condensation can occur. Moisture condensation can becaused by moving the Reader device between temperature extremes or if theReader device has come in direct contact with moisture. If you suspect moistureas the cause, allow the Reader device to sit for a few hours before attempting to turn it back on.

Coby not working

1. Turnn completly off the tablet.
2. With the tablet turned off, holding the return button while turning on the tablet-pressing power button. Keep holding the return button until you see the Hard Factory reset screen.
3. Confirm the hard reset procedure. Once done, simply wait until process has finished-the tablet will restart. This process can take up to 30 minutes, so it's very important that the battery of the tablet is completly charged before attempting the hard reset. If you can connect it to the charger while resetting, even better.

Hi huffasia,

Looks like a charging problem, try this:

1. Connect the reader to the computer and make sure red steady light comes on, if not, then hit the reset button for 3 seconds.
2. Once you get the redlight, leave the reader charging for 15-30 minutes (make sure the computer does not go into sleep mode)
3. After you charge the reader, try the soft reset again and slide the power switch at the top of the unit.

If this does not resolve the problem you may try a hard reset on the reader but this will remove all content.

To hard reset:

1. Hit the reset on the bottom of the reader
2. Slide the power switch
3. Once "Opening Book" comes on the screen, press and hold the directional "down arrow" and the number "0" both at the same time until "Reset All" appears on the screen.
4. The screen will go blank, now its time to turn it on again.

Note: If after trying the hard reset, the reader goes back to the black arrows trying to turn around, then repeat the steps again.

Hope this helps!

Forrunner 301 won't turn on or charge

You can try various resets to see if you can get it to respond.
Have you tried plugging the unit into the wall instead of the USB
port.Do you get the Battery Charging message at any time.You can
try a soft reset.Press mode and reset.Then try to power on while
plugged in.A hard reset will delete all your data and settings from
the Forerunner.Press the Power and the Mode button until the unit
comes on and asks if you want to erase all user data.Select Yes.
If the above won't work, try a hard reset that by-passes the
confirmation screen.Press Mode, Reset and Power.

Hard reset and charging problems

do the hard reset again .. hold the power button down while operating the reset in the back .. keep the power button down for a few seconds .. that should bring up a display "delete all" .. you can choose to do so .. that will be a hard reset .. now if the battery is dead and the charger is not working then nothing will work for you .. you might have a bad charger .. often the end that plugs into the unit develops a broken wire inside the cable ..
the m515 wont charge from the sync cable (shame) it needs the external power adapter .. make sure the connections on the charger and palm are clean .. the power adapter is 5 volts and i think about 1 amp .. )(center pos) if you want to try another adapter .. the tip is rather standard ... also you can get a universal power adapter from radio shack that will work on just about anything .. you just plug in a suitable tip .. the tip for your palm is an "A19" .. the power adapter is "IGO" wall adapter 23-1401 model PSM08VADJ ... that seems to work nicely and it plugs directly in to the palm .. so you can work with it plugged in .. when the charger is working there should be a lightning bolt thru the battery symbol .. it sounds like you already know that .. if the battery has gone open then it may not indicate a charge .. but the unit should still work while on the charger if that is actually working ....

Bicycle Child Seat install has a rubber piece hanging in back

The rubber piece is designed to lock the tung on the back of the seat to the rack. To get it in place you need to bend the tung down until you can insert the rubber piece over the tung and under the two fins so that when you release the tung the rubber is locked into place. You will likely need to bend the tung down quite a bit. The rubber piece has two circular ridges that should be between the two fins that it is pressed into. These ridges will prevent the rubber piece from sliding out.
So basically, bend the tung down and press the rubber piece into the slot that is created. It will start to become clear once you get this far. Just make sure those ridges on the rubber are on the inside of the fins.
