Question about Palm LifeDrive Mobile Manager Handheld

1 Answer

Hello. My life drive is approx 3 years old. Today, for the first time, it went totally "dead", not even a soft reset would get it working. Back home, I put it in the cradle. Eventually (it took several long minutes) it came "back to life" and I even had a sync. However, when I took it off the cradle and tried to open a document it said something like "translation failed" and went dead again. Dead dead. Like before. I have it now in the cradle, it is "alive" again but I am afraid of doing anything. So it sits there. Anyone has any idea what should be my next step? I am not a technical guy, so please be patient. THANKS!

That is your battery telling you it has had enough. Usually they last about 2 years. You can buy a replacement battery from about $15 and up. Usually these replacements have more capacity than the originals and so you get much longer usable run time.

You can send it in to get it replaced but it is a very simple job to do yourself. You just need a 5.5 torx screwdriver to take 4 screws out and open the case. Undo one connector remove the old battery and then put the cover back on and the screws back in. Carge overnight and you are up and running.

If you do a search on google or bing you will find dozens of places that sell the battery and/or will replace it for you.

If you look at this link it shows the battery and shows a video on how to replace the battery. Have a look at that and it should give you an idea if you feel comfortable to fix it yourself.

The battery died in my 95 jeep grand cherokee laredo an now it wont hold a charge


If the battery is old(2 to 2/12 years) the battery is sulfated and worn out inside. Going dead is just the nail in the coffin. Plus, a discharged battery will freeze in cold weather, allowing the ice inside to bend and break the lead plates inside, causing shorts to occur and will drain the battery after charging. If it were me, I would bring the battery somewhere warm for 8 hours, slow charge it, then have it tested. If it's more than 2 1/2 years old, I would just replace it.

Where is the fuse for ge spacemaker jvm1320wb-002...the unit is totally dead...nothing works


It is time to replace the microwave oven, if the fuse is open you more than likely have a more serious problem that will be costly, companies only go back a few years when it comes to supply parts

There could be other issues beside the battery. My best solution would be to take back to where you bought the watch, or any other authorized Citizen watch retailer for repair.

To answer your questions, depending on how much use, (meaning how many snap shoots) will dictate whether your camera has reached its life expectancy. The proper procedure for long life with the battery is to have it totally drain out before charging it. If charged too soon the battery has a memory and will only work as long as the short period the battery was charged. It sounds like camera is worn out. Good Luck

WILL NOT TURN ON


Possible solution.  So, my sansa express went dead after pluggin it in to my computer after a few weeks of use.  It was totally dead and unresponsive.  Didn't turn on at all.  Plugging it in wouldn't effect it and windows only recognized a malfunctioning usb adapter.  Thus, reprogramming the firmware was out of the question.
Solution: the soft reset actually worked.  You have to soft reset (hold down the grey center button and the volume up + key at the same time for a few seconds.)  Then plug it into the computer.  Voi La.  It came back to life.  The strange part was that it still wouldn't turn on after the soft reset.  It required me plugging it into my computer to revive the thing.
