Re: Palm TX Handheld - Delete all records

Hi, the best option would be a hard reset. Before doing so, i would suggest doing one lase hotsync.

at the back of your pda, there is a reset button. press this. be prepared. as it is resetting, press and hold the power button as well as the up button. hold these for like 3 seconds then release. it will then ask you whether you wanted to reset it. press the up button once again and release. it will then reset the pda.

if these instructions are still difficult there are some at best of luck.

No, you can install it without removing the other, and yes you can install more programs.

Using the desktop, is there anyway to move(either to the memory card or the PC) or delete files on a Palm TX. I apparently used to much of the devices memory and now I can't ge to the home screen(it...

If you're able to hotsync, then yes. In the desktop, delete notes or other items (Does the TX have voice memos? Those would be a quick way to free up a lot of space!)
Perform a hotsync, and your Palm should then have some free memory.

If you're not able to hotsync, then nothing you do in the Desktop will have any effect on the Palm.

But, I'm skeptical that this is the real problem. It sounds more like memory corruption, and a hard reset is going to be the real fix.

Is there anyway to delete files from a Palm TX using the desktop?

Unless I'm not understanding your question, any entries that you delete from either the desktop or PDA will delete from the other device when you sync your PDA.

So, if you delete an item from your Palm desktop, the next time you sync your PDA to your desktop, the entry will be deleted from your PDA as well.

But, if you haven't backed up / synced your PDA to your desktop yet, install and run Hotsync Manager - do that first. And, perform that procedure often so that your info on your PDA will be safe on your desktop.

Hope this helps.

Is there anyway to delete programs from a Palm TX from the desktop?

Yes there is a way to delete programs. Take your TX and in the upper left of the screen you will see the time. Tap the time with your stylus. A drop down menu will appear. Tap "DELETE". Your TX will generate a list of all the programs and applications on your hand held. Once that list is generated tap or highlight the one you want to delete and the tap the delete button at the bottom of the screen. Once you have deleted all the programs you want tap done and then do a hot sync. They should be gone from then on. If you find this helpful please rate me. Best wishes.

Bought TX but have no desktop software cd

Yes if you go to you will find a section for support. You can download everything you need there to get your PDA up and running. Once you have the software installed on your computer you will want to go in and enter all your information like names and addresses in your contact section. Once you have that all done you connect the PDA to the computer by using the usb cord and then hit HotSync. You can go back later and update any of your infomation right in the PDA itself. Best wishes. Let me know if you need any other help with this.

Onscreen status bar

Check the files on the Palm. If you see these two files (or either of them)
AppSlipRotate.prc and StatusBarLib.prc
delete the files and do another Hotsync.

They shouldn't be there - they were needed for the T3, so going from a Zire to a TX shouldn't bring them in - but possibly they were on the Palm already or something.
