Question about Palm LifeDrive Handheld
Hi. My 2 year old daughter immersed my LifeDrive in water last week. When I pulled it out, water poured out of it and the calendar started scrolling backwards through the days. I was out, so all I could do was to hit the soft reset button and that turned off the screen. When I got home, I took off the back cover, disconnected the battery and let it dry out for 5 days. Just put it back together and charged it (the battery was dead), date and time was wrong. Otherwise seemed to work perfectly. Except -- battery level seems to drop in a few minutes. from 100% to 72% in a few minutes, with the screen off. But then it charges right back up again in just a couple of minutes. Don't know if the battery is fried, in which case I will just buy another and plug it in. Or if the power management needs resetting. Is there anyway to do this? I looked at reviews and they all said the battery in the LifeDrive is not replaceable. But mine certainly looked to be. I just unplugged it. Did they change that from the initial offering? Thanks!
The only thing close that I can recommend is doing an in cradle reset. Palms site says it only works on certain models, but hey it's worth a shot.
