    Tried it many times already. Unit works when plugged into charger, even without the battery. The unit can't see the battery.

Carried in a pocket, the charger connector at base of SJ22 will collect much lint which then does not allow proper connection. Try using a toothpick or straightened paper clip to clean out this lint. So far over several years, that's solved my connection problems

Have you tried resetting the unit? There's a little button on the back that you can press in with a paper clip. That'll cause the unit to reset (you won't lose data) and then you might be good for charging.

    Perhaps the battery connection points on the actual unit have become bent over time? Bent inwards so they are not making contact with the terminals on the battery itself?

    I suggest using a very small screwdriver or perhaps a push-pin to gently bend the electrical contacts outwards (towards the battery) so that they are sure to touch it. (You maybe also be able to bend a spring that holds the battery instead of the electrical contacts.)

    Another idea would be to use an electrical contact cleaner (or even a dry q-tip) to clean the contacts on both the unit and the battery.

    And for future reference, please don't rate a Solution as Inappropriate if it just simply didn't help solve the problem. The "Inappropriate" rating is reserved for things like spam or rude comments.

Little adapter that plugs into both sony clie sj22 and power cord is broken. How do I get another one?

Same thing happened to me. If you search Amazon for SJ22 sync cable, you should find some. I ordered $9.95 five-foot cable from Amazon (via Boxwave)--it says In Stock, but then they said it is no longer available, and I had to buy $15 version with retractable very thin cable--hope it lasts.
Downside is that computer needs to be on to charge device.
If you want to pay $30, the original package appears to be available at:

I Have a Sony CLIE PEG-SJ22 that I want to get internet on!!!

Hey dude. You don't even have a built-in browser in that handheld. What use can it be of even if you can get wifi to work on it? In addition, this thing has a CPU clock speed as fast as a 80486 Intel desktop CPU, even if you can browse the internet, it will take forever to finish loading a page. Oh, do you know that it only has 16MB internal memory for everything? If you want to check email, use outlook or palm desktop to receive them and sync it to your Clie. This is the closest you can get to the internet with this handheld. Goog luck and don't forget to amaze me by posting a real solution up if you can find anything, I mean anything, better than what I just said.

I'm in the process of changing from SJ22 to Smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.1 and I have found a way round this by sending data as vcard to myself in outlook then opening the attachment and saving and closing - this is then sent to your device on the next sync. It is a bit long winded but it works.

Open Outlook and leave it open.
In Palm, select the address you want to send, then in EDIT menu choose Forward as vcard, send and close the outlook pop up, saving changes.
Go to Outlook Inbox and open the attachment then save and close.
