VISOR PDA DATA CRASH

Hi-
I have just lost all the data on my old Visor PDA… and am completely crushed. I dropped it and the screen froze. When I tried to reset it it didn’t respond… so I took out the batteries,… and after that all the information was erased! I don't have a backup as our backup system for the pda became outdated.
Do you have any data recovery systems for PDA’s?
If I am able to recover the information: I am going to run out and get the most up to date technology there is so this doesn't happen again! Please let me know at your earliest convenience. Thanks.
Nicole

I have a Handspring Visor Graphite Handheld and when i shnged the bateries i lost all my data. Anyone can help?


If you have hotsynced your Visor with a PC (or Mac), the first time you sync your Visor to that computer, it should restore all the data from the last hotsync to the PDA. This is one big reason that it makes sense to sync your PDA on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, if you never used the hotsync function for your Visor, you may not be able to recover any of your data. This model Handspring Visor requires good batteries or else everything in its memory will randomize and you will lose all stored information. There is a small capacitor in the Visor that provides enough reserve power for about 30-60 seconds when you pull out the batteries. It's for this reason that Palm recommended pulling out only one battery at a time when changing to a fresh set. That minimized the amount of time that the PDA would be without power. That same advice applies equally to Visor PDAs.

Tip

Visor Deluxe does not start


Hi.

The procedure below shows how to reset the PDA to factory settings after backing up all your personal data.
After backing up your data with HotSync, perform a hard reset, this will erase all applications and returns your device to its factory default settings.

To perform a hard reset:
1. Hold down the power button on the front panel of the PDA.
2. While holding down the power button, use a paper clip to press the reset button.
3. Release the power button.
4. You will get a message warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on the PDA, do the following:
Press the top scroll button on the front panel
to complete the hard reset and display the startup screen.
If you press any other button you will do a soft reset, that will not fix the problem. In that case restart the procedure.
5. After doing hard reset the unit will return to the initial factory state. All third party installed applications will be deleted, and setting will be reported to factor default.

Connect to HotSync and do a backup of the PDA, then do hard reset on Palm.

If the PDA is not detected by Hotsync, then there is an additional problem.

To troubleshoot problems given by third party application you do a backup, then rename the backup folder containing third party application data to Backup.old, and do hard reset.

After that you start restoring applications from backup.old one at the time, when one application jams the Palm, that is the responsible for the error message.

Procedure is described here.

Regards.

It tells me that I don't have enough memory and should delete data files App 8004 and App 8002. I don't know what I can remove without damaging the performance. What can I move to the extra card I have


Hi.

To start you can delete safely any music or video file.

If that is not enough to fix the problem, then the best thing to do is resetting the PDA to factory settings after backing up all your personal data.

I cant get past the align screen on my o2


When you don't charge your PDA's battery for a while, and let both normal and backup batteries to finish completely, all your data in your PDA is lost, and it will go back to factory default state. As the operating system is stored in the ROM of your PDA, it will be reinstalled when you charge it again, and becuase there's no data left from the past state, you have to do all the settings again from the start, beginning with the screen alignment (You can tap carefully on the plus sign each time it moves). If you had a backup syncronized with your PC, you can then recover your data to your PDA.

Hot Synch an existing PalmVx data to a replacement palmVx


HI,
The first thing you want to do is to do a Hard Reset on the used PDA that you bought as a replacement. To do that follow these steps:

1. Hold down the power button and then depress the small hole in the back with the tip of your stylus.

2. Continue to hold them both in until you see the Palm logo.

3. Let go of both of them and then follow the onscreen directions. You will want to answer yes and use the 5 way navigation button on the bottom of your pda and hit up so that is completes the reset. After that you will have to set up your touch screen and go through the tapping the target. After you have gone through all this then do a hotsync2.gif. It should clear up your problem. Best wishes.

When you upgrade to a new firmware version, the phone's memory is completely wiped. It will be very hard to get your information back.

Download the official firmware from i-Mate and try flashing it. You will need to connect the phone to a laptop and run the flash on it. If the computer is not recognizing the phone, you will need to get the phone into serial mode. This forum may help you out.

Visor will Not Turn On


I have a Visor Platinum that has started doing the same.  In my case, two things have helped in the past.  (1) Mine has a built-in lithium battery pack.  The first time the problem happened -- the battery was dead -- I cleaned its contacts and where it mates into the PDA with some rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab and recharged.  (2) Second time it crashed, the problem was with one of the programs that I had installed (some freeware).  The program would cause the PDA to hang during and alarm and make it stay ON till the battery ran down too far.  Solution was to not install the add ons.  To wake the PDA the second time, I placed it on the charger for a minute, took it off and immediately tried the different resets.  Tried the entire process 10-15 times and finally managed to wake up the PDA.  Once awake, let it finish charging before you do anything.  It might prompt you to set the date/time etc, but just wait till it is done charging otherwise it will go back into its coma.

Lost Data


The simple answer is.. i'm sorry to say it so simple.. no. Here is why. PDA's have volatile RAM memory. This means that when the battery, back-up battery are completely drain out, they cannot keep up powering the RAM memory. When the power cuts off, everything in the RAM memory is lost. The operating sistem and other files specific to it, doesn't get erased as they are stored separately in another kind of memory called ROM. This doesn't get errased when power drains out. The reason why PDA's doesn't have only ROM is because this type of memory is slow and the PDA will operate (read or write data to it) in the same slow manner. Therefore they use the RAM memory wich is faster. The best advice I can give you now is never to let the main battery to drain out completely. Also regular back-ups of the data inside the PDA are usefull for situation where unexpected occur. Feel free to ask more questions and always remember to rate the answers provided from this site ;). Good luck.
