Question about Palm Tungsten T3 Handheld

1 Answer

Lost Data Hi I had to reset my Palm T3 and when I went to operate it found that I had lost all the data. When synchronizing it with my computer I carelessly chose Handheld Overwrites DeskTop. Now I cannot find any data in my Contacts, Calendar, Memos, etc. even on my Desktop. Can you help at all? Bruce

Sounds like you've wiped all your data. It's a good discipline to keep a regular backup of all your Palm files on the PC so that if this happens you can restore the last backup and re-synchronise. I have had several Palm devices, and all of them have corrupted files at some point.

Hi elg

There are many ways to reset your Treo, here are some from Treo KB themselves...

# How do I perform a hard reset on the Palm Treo 600?

Warning: A hard reset will erase everything on your device. All your data will be removed, and formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a hard reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything.

HotSync note: Some third-party applications change the way your handheld backs up data. Other third-party applications do not back up data. If you have third-party software on your device, please contact the developer to learn what components are backed up during a HotSync operation, and if HotSync conduits are altered. Any data not backed up will be lost.

1. Hold down the power (on/off) button on your device.
2. While holding down the power button, turn over your device so that you can see the back of it.
Using an unfolded paper clip or a similar small object, gently press the RESET hole on the back
3. When the device's screen displays the Palm Computing Platform logo, release the power button.
4. A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld.
In response, do one of the following:
* Press the UP button to complete the hard reset, erasing everything on your device
or
* Press any other button to begin a soft reset, leaving your data intact.
5. Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.


Note: A hard reset does not reset the current date and time. It does restore other settings to the factory default.

# How do I recover after a hard reset?

If you backed up your data by synchronizing it to your desktop computer, you can restore it now by performing a HotSync operation.

1. Since all data was erased by the hard reset, first synchronize your device with your desktop computer.
1. Make sure your conduits are turned to "Synchronize the files" or "Desktop overwrites handheld". Do not turn conduits to "handheld overwrites desktop". This will erase data on your desktop computer, and you won't be able to transfer it to your handheld.

Note: Data restoration may take some time. The HotSync operation will be faster with a USB connection, slower with a serial or IR connection. You won't be able to perform a network HotSync connection until you have performed at least one successful 'local' HotSync via USB, Serial or IR.
Re-install third-party software, if any.
2. Third-party software (applications, hacks, themes, games, databases, eBooks, etc.) might not have transferred back to your handheld during a HotSync operation. Locate any missing original .prc or .pdb files on your desktop computer, and double-click the files to re-install them. For more information on how to install third-party software, visit the Palm Support Knowledge Library.

Caution: Sometimes, the reason you needed to perform a hard reset was because of third-party software. While we encourage users to take advantage of the thousands of third-party titles available, we cannot guarantee that the third-party software will be compatible. If you recently installed software and then experienced a problem, maybe you should not re-install that software. For more information on how to diagnose third-party issues, visit the Palm Support Knowledge Library.
Re-set your preferences.
3. The System conduit restores your preferences for display, menus, auto-off, and other functions. However, if there are other preferences (such as those set within third-party themes) that haven't been restored, now is the time to do so manually. Refer to the third-party software documentation for instructions.

# How do I perform a Battery Disconnect Reset?

A battery disconnect reset is a last resort step you can take to cut battery power, wipe out all data, and bring a Palm Treo 600 back to its factory-fresh state.

A battery disconnect reset will erase everything on your device, and also reset the wireless radio and disconnect the internal battery. All your data will be removed, and your formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a battery disconnect reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything.

Additionally, you won't be able to turn your Palm Treo 600 back on until you connect it to a power adapter, so do not perform this type of reset if you're not near a power source and your Palm Treo 600 charger.

HotSync note: Some third-party applications change the way your handheld backs up data, while other third-party applications do not back up data at all. If you have third-party software on your device, please contact the developer to learn what components are backed up during a HotSync operation, and if HotSync conduits are altered. Any data not backed up will be lost.

1. Disconnect your Palm Treo 600 from the AC charger.
2. Hold down the K and Backspace keys simultaneously.
3. While continuing to hold down the K and Backspace keys, press the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device.
* Note: Palm made this type of reset very awkward to perform, so that it would not happen by accident when your Palm Treo 600 is jostling around in a pocket or bag. Sorry for the inconvenience. You might want to enlist the help of a dexterous friend if you find it too difficult.
4. Continue holding down K and Backspace. The screen will flash white briefly, and then go black. Release K and Backspace after this happens.
5. To revive your Palm Treo 600, connect it to the AC charger and plug the charger into a socket. The screen will stay blank for several seconds (as long as half a minute), then it will turn on. The LED will glow solid red, indicating charging.
6. Finally, follow the steps for recovering after a hard reset (a battery disconnect reset is a type of hard reset).

You need to preform a hard reset. Press the reset button, and hold down the power button at the same time until you see the palm/startup logo. Release power button when it asks you to clear data/reset/etc. Follow instructions

Warning: This will delete all data/settings/contacts, make sure you have a backup of your files.

Data Lost - Palm T 3


  1. BACK UP YOUR PALM DATA! It is normally in C:\Program Files\PalmOne\XXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the first six of your Palm's User ID. If it is not there, the location can be found in Palm Desktop (Tools-> Options).
  2. Is the correct Data still present in Palm Desktop? If Yes, you're in great shape, it should sync back to the Palm after a hard-reset.
  3. If not, close Palm Desktop and look in the data directory. Some subdirectories (address, datebook, etc.) should have BAK files. If the BAK files are bigger than the DAT files, delete the DAT files and rename the BAK files to DAT. Restart Palm Desktop. Is the data there now?

If not, I am afraid you've had a learning experience. My Palm is synced to two different machines. One is running RAID-1 (mirrored drives), and both are backed up to tape weekly. Me? Paranoid? Naah...

Most people have to find out about backups the hard way.

Synchronizing Tungsten T3 with desktop or laptop


I recently re-installed my T3 program

What do you mean?
  • Did you restore your T3 from a backup on the PC?
  • Did you install programs on the T3 using the PC's "quick install"?
Is Palm Desktop showing the correct Contact/To-do/Calendar Data?

How are the conduits set up? (From Palm Desktop, select Hotsync->Custom)

'Reset' each time after hotsynching


Do you still have administrative access to your laptop? IIRC there are some problems with using PD with a non-admin account.

I would recommend that you back up the "good" backup data on the Laptop. In PD, Choose Tools/Options, the "Data Directory" entry shows where the data is stored (in a subdirectory that looks like the first six characters of the Palm's User ID)

1 palm + 2 computers = successful hotsync?


Yes and.. no.

It is possible to have one Palm synchronized to 2 PCs (I do this with my T3), just make sure that you don't end up with any "overlapping changes" - items that change on both machines.

However, since Syncing takes a full backup of the Palm, having two completely different sets of data on two different machines is complicated at best. If you are are not careful you could lose all your info by accident. One way to get around this would be to put everything on on the T3 and use categories to separate work and personal items - which is what I do.

However, if you are dead-set on keeping all of your work stuff in one place and all your personal stuff in another, I would recommend that you get a second T3.

Sync fails with "too many open databases"


This is what I did to fix that error:

Hard-reset your Palm to erase all data (that usually involves pushing the small "reset" button on the back, then pressing the "power on" button until the device boots, and then pressing "up" to confirm the hard-reset)


After that, sync your palm. The sync software will ask if you want to use your existing profile or create a new one. Create a new one. Then the program will offer to sync your Outlook profile with your Palm. Click on "ok", and a message asking you to accept to sync your Outlook data with more than one profile will pop-up. Click on OK, again... and that's it!
