Question about Palm TX Handheld
I entered "Sys 0505" in the Search box on the main Palm support site and got a bunch of hits, one of which is a Palm Knowledge Base article which would suggest that the error might be related to a file (these hits suggest a backlight file though the last four digits of the error are different) which might have gotten onto your TX if you upgraded from an older Palm.
Hope this helps. If it's not the backlight file, it could be some other relic system file from an older Palm. You might have to try Hard Resetting your TX, renaming the Backup folder on your desktop, then Hotsyncing your regular PIM data back and reinstalling your third-party apps one at a time. This routine is the customary way to try to troubleshoot a software problem, which is prolly what you have. Now, if you have never had a prior Palm handheld and there's no way it could be a legacy system file from a prior device...I dunno...I would still suggest going the Hard Reset route, renaming your backup folder to backupold, Hotsyncing your data, make sure it's all working, then reinstall your 3rd party applications.

Try a hard reset and wiping it out. Then resync it with the newest Palm Desktop manager 6.2
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Try to perform a System Reset (see article linked below). If it works to break the loop, you should then be able to delete the offending "My Palm" software and perform a Hotsync to backup your data to your desktop.
If that doesn't break the loop, you'll have to perform another Hard Reset. Sometimes, a Hard Reset takes a couple of tries to get it right, since it's easier to do it wrong than to do it right.
This article discusses the various types of Reset for different Palm devices:
Until you break the TX out of its loop, you won't be able to get the data from it.
To see the Palm OS version running on your TX, enter the Menu, select Info, then Version.
To Get Out Of A Loop:
b) And THEN press and release the RESET Button
c) When you see the second Logo (Palm Powered) release the UP Button
d) Now check if your SYSTEM RESET worked by going to Beam Receive. If it goes back to Off even after you put it to On it means you were successful
2. Now Perform A SOFT RESET by pressing and releasing the button in the back once
