Question about Palm TX Handheld

1 Answer

Have to reset Palm TX to power on sometimes

Lately, when I try to turn my Palm TX on using the "home" button in the lower left hand corner, nothing happens, even after pressing repeatedly. Today when this happened, in desperation I pressed the reset button on the back and THEN it powered on. I don't know if this is related, but I've also been having to hit the reset button often when trying to access the wifi--it connects quickly to a wifi signal, but hangs when I try to use the Palm Blazer v. 4.3 to go onto the Internet. I'm using Palm OS Garnet v. 5.4.9.

I have a palm TX and it usually just sits for a minute or two when I use blazer. I have also found out that the pda will always reset itself and it only freezes when it has a lot going on. It stays frozen for a while, but eventually unfreezes. As for the home button, it's probably worn down. My power button and my up button have almost completely stopped working.

I had a power flicker during the time I was hot syncing my Palm TX. The hot sync did not work, and it would not hot sync at all after that. On advice from Palm's website, I downloaded the latest desk...


If so much has happened to your handheld then the only thing left to be done is a reinstall of the firmware, as that is the only solution to a corrupt firmware because of the power glitch while it was doing something. The glitch has corrupted the firmware and thats how it needs a reinstall. Nothing serious but such things do happen i electronics.

When trying to sync, error message reads (sys 0505)(0,841).What can I do? For Palm TX handheld


Hi,
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:

http://tinyurl.com/zlwza

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:
  1. Perform a SYSTEM RESET by doing the following:
a) Press the UP Button
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

  1. After a soft reset, a logo screen appears, followed shortly by a Preferences screen asking you to set time and date.

  1. If a soft reset does not break it out of the loop, you may need to try one of the other resets below.

  1. Do an INCOMPLETE HARD RESET by holding down the power (on/off) button on your device.

  1. While holding down the power button, Press and release the reset button on the back of your handheld device

  1. Keep the power button pressed and release it when the “Palm Powered” logo appears.

  1. A message will now appear warning that you are about to “Erase All Data”. And this will happen if you press UP or DOWN.

  1. Instead you press left or right to begin a soft reset, leaving your data intact.

  1. Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Sorry this was so long, I tried to put everything down that might help you.

There is a possibility that there is like dirt or sand between the screen and the frame. I know really simple right? Thats what I thought and it actually was a piece of popcorn for me. Use like a piece of paper or something and try to clean it out then it should take off.

Palm tx wont turn on


When the battery is discharged, it is best to charge it overnite.

Have you reset the TX?
Hold the power button down and push in the reset button on the back of the TX with the stylus. Hold the power button down until you get the screen where it ask you if you want to erase/reset the unit. click yes to reset.
Then when it comes back up, re-sync it with the Palm Desktop on your computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My Palm TX device is not initializing. it says "palm powered" then a loading bar starts at the bottom of the screen, then it turns off...and it repeats the same thing over and over again.


Have you tried a hard reset? In case you need to know how...Hold Power button on Top of Palm down, then press reset button, then release reset button and continue to hold power button down until second Palm logo comes on screen and progress bar at the bottom of screen completes. If you release the power button and it asks which language you want to use you have done this correctly.

Palm TX power button and touchscreen


We have three TX's in our family with non-working power buttons. I downloaded the program Au Dodo http://www.freewarepalm.com/utilities/audodo.shtml and simply now use the far left button (button 1) as my 'power' button. It works wonderfully.

I haven't found out how to fix the calibration problem, but power on/off has been totally fixed. Good luck for you.

Not turning on


If it's not making the bleep sound when you first connect it, then something is wrong with the connection between the computer and Palm.

Try plugging it in and then while it's plugged in hit the reset button. This resets the charging mechanism inside. Then let it sit a few hours to see if it will come on later.

Also, you may need to troubleshoot the connection from the Palm to the computer. Make sure all is connected securely, make sure the Palm Desktop icon is in the bottom right hand corner of your computer in the system tray.
