Question about Palm LifeDrive Handheld

Lifedrive won't power on

When I plug the Lifedrive into an outlet, the battery light shows thats its charging, but unit still will not turn on. I've tried everything, including replacing the battery, and still nothing. It is out of warrenty. As far as I can remember, absolutely nothing has happened to it, Its been taken well care of, and all of a sudden, it won't power on anymore. Any help offered will be appreciated, as there are a lot of info in the unit that i'm in need of. Thanks

When you plug the unit into the wall to charge, poke the reset hole in the back of it at the same time. This should reset the internal recharging mechanism in the Palm. Let it sit for a couple of hours and then see if it will come on.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
  • 2 Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.

  • 3 Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
  • 4 Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
  • 5 Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • 6 Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.

    Emachines eM250: Battery won't charge. Not power cord. Not outlet.


    If you do not have a multimeter it will be very difficult for you to figure it out. If you do get back to me and I can help walk you through some steps. Otherwise, buy a new power supply, would not be worth paying someone to fix.

    Did you run this test without AC input?
    Also what happens when you cut off the AC mains without any load connected to it? Will the UPS continue to run or does it switch off as well?

    I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.


    • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
    • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

    My fridgedaire window unit A/C and heat won't come on. I had replaced an outside light fixture a couple of weeks ago and had turned off the circuit breaker that affected this unit too. Now the unit...


    Plug a light into the outlet used for the A/C, if the light does not come on when reset then the circuit breaker that provided the power to the outlet need to be reset or replaced.

    I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


    Maybe your battery is totally drained.

    Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

    Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

    Palm LifeDrive not charging


    I had the exact same annoying problem. Easy fix though. Get the palm universal cradle. The power connector is either worn or loose and making partial contact. So when you use the normal adapter there might be a position that works but generally it won't. When you use the cradle the weight of the LD presses the contacts more and it will behave.

    I went through a couple of chargers before getting the cradle and fixing it once and for all.

    Life-Drive will not power on.


    I don't know how much technical skill you have, but I had the same problem and the warrenty had expired. I thought it might be a battery problem. To make a long story short I unpluged the internal battery and pluged it back in and the system came on.
