Question about Palm LifeDrive Handheld

Palm Lifedrive failure

Lifedrive tries to 'reboot' but never gets beyond the opening screens - stops - there is an audible 'click' and it starts over. It never succeeds. Unit is quite warm in the middle of the back panel. (hard drive? tell me it aint' so!) Battery seems OK but I ordered a new one just in case. KBW in Anchorage kbwitt@att.com 907-229-0459

    I am experiencing the same problem. I ran down the battery to see if it would possibly reboot properly after that, but still get stuck on the Palm screen after hearing a few clicks.

    I have the same problem! I couldn't find the hard drive on the palmparts.com page. How do I find out if my palm is still under warranty?

Palm life drive frozen on "palm one "screen


When you see the first screen (the orange one) hold the UP button as the bar moves across the bottom of the screen. Let go right before the screen goes to the silver logo. If it continues and opens Prefs, then you need to delete the program causing it to reboot. If that doesn't work, do a Hard Reset. A Hard Reset will erase everything on your lifedrive, so only do it if you have to. Hold the Power Button while you push the reset button. Continue with the instructions to finish erasing your device.

My lifedrive seems to have developed a mind of its own. Calibration is off and it just randomly clicks on items and goes to the program associated with it.


That can be from a couple of things. If you have a screen protector on try taking it off. Also check for crud under the buttons. I've had it caused by both. The screen protector was perfectly in place and this stopped the instant I pulled it off.

It is possible it is a fault in the digitzer hardware but that is quite uncommon and requires replacement.

Palm lifedrive wont' boot stuck on palm screen


This sounds like the issue where the LifeDrive is stuck in a loop. You can see how to break the device out of the system loop on the Palm Knowledge Base article (26419) located HERE.

Hope that helps get you up and running again!

Palm lifedrive frozen 'secure erase'


You may be experiecing failure of the microdrive. Those are typical of it failing or having failed.

Having said that have your tried the hard reset buy holding the 5 way down while sliding the power switch? This is slightly different than the older secure but you need the update 2 to have it. This will erase and reformat and reload the entire system a bit more thouroughly than the older secure erase.
It might get you out of the cycle which is more important.

After you do a hard reset, try naming the palm something other than what the name was before hand and see if that profile works.
