If you wanted to do it yourself youll need to get a PDA repair kit for 9.95 from pdasmart.com and pop it open (4 torx screws and use a shim tool to pry it open , be careful) and follow anti static procedures ( touch a metal object frequently ) once open check the contacts for the speaker and while your at it the head phone jack if they look fine they may need cleaning. use your favorite electronics cleaner and clean them. This is only if your lucky you'll probably need to replace one/both by placing a soldering iron and melting the contacts off and getting a replacement part and soldering it carefully in place, you'll get a replacement from another broken T|E \ T|E2 or from a PDA replacements parts store of your choice

a refurbished T|X at PDAsmart will cost you $199 if I were to spend any money it wouldn't be at the Palm repair shop

SOURCE: Palm Pilot TX will not switch off

Could be a malfunction with the power button.  Go to settings and make sure the sleep timer is set.  That will save your battery life.

Are you syncing the new device to the same username in Palm Desktop as an older device?
If you are, this will cause problems on the new device. When you sync the device, it saves the device settings, 3rd party apps, preferences, etc. in the backup folder in the username folder on the PC. When

you sync the new device it copies the contents of the backup folder for the old device to the new device. This will cause corruption in the settings for the new device thus causing erratic behavior of the new device.

Looks like you may need to hard reset your device and rename your backup folder

Go to http://www.palm.com/cgi-bin/cso_kbURL.cgi?ID=887 and follow the directions to do a hard reset. Next before you hotsync your data back over you will need to rename your backup folder, to do that go here;

XP
C:\program files\palm or palm one\[hotsync username]\ and rename your backup
folder to backup.old


Vista
Start-->documents\Palm OS Desktop\[hotsync username]\ and rename your backup
folder to backup.old

Then hotsync to your current hotsync name and all your contacts, calendar,
tasks, and memos will come back over.

SOURCE: Sync Palm Pilot Contacts to Blackberry Pearl

generate a file from the palm pilot program. I think there is a application within palm pilot specifically for that purpose. Once you have generated the file move it to your blackberry manager program and sync the phone

Lost the password for an old Palm pilot. Is there a way to unlock it?


Likely the only way to access would be a hard reset which would wipe out the address book you are hoping to recover.

Operate my old palm pilot? :)


Just put palm pilot instructions into google, preferably with your pilots model number and it'll take you to the Palm Piolt site where you can download a pdf of the relevant manual. Its easier to do it this way than me explain, besides you can then work through it at your own speed. Hope this helps. Happy Christmas

I just bought a palm pilot m130.I have turned it on now i am very confused,what do i do !


You see, all that was left from the old Palm devices (had a Tungsten W myself, back in '04!) was acquired by HP, and they seem to have shrunk all informations into this page.


Really hope they might be useful to you, somehow.


Anyway, please, let me know if you need further informations.


Regards,
Carlos

More applications than I should have


On your main screen touch the menu icon (bottom right in your graffiti box). This will open your drop down menu. Touch "delete" and a list of programs, etc will appear. Select one at a time and then press delete.
Hope this helps
