Won't shut down

My Plam E2 restarts itself whenever I attempt to turn it off. In addition it is not automatically timing out and shutting down at the designated time of 2 minutes. My battery is constantly being depleted.

Re: Won't shut down

There are a couple of things you can try.

1- Poke the hole in the back where it says reset.
This will in essence reboot your Palm.

2- Make sure the Auto-Off after: is set to 2 minutes by going into the Preferences, Power section.

3- If your Palm is not holding charge, connect the Palm to charge it. Turn the Palm on and make sure the battery at the top has a lightning bolt going through it. This will let you know it is charging. Then, push the reset hole in the back to reset the Palm. This should reset the charging mechanism in the Palm and allow your battery to hold power.

If the Palm does not hold power after step 3, you may need to see about getting it serviced.

Hello there and welcome to lfete at Fixya, the Support Team

Maybe there is a setting for the stand by mode in the phone, you have to adjust that. Go to the settings in the phone and find the phone settings and adjust these settings.

Hold the power button until it shuts off. Holding the power button down for a long time constitutes a "hard shutdown" and most of todays gadgets do shut down by actions such as this.

If not, then wait until it dies then recharge it. If you don't want to wait, carefully take out the batteries then put them back in. After you turn it on again it should be fine.

My blackberry keeps shutting itself down and restarting at least two or three times a day. called my phone company and they just act like im making it up

I know you are not making it up. I had a blackberry curve that would do the same thing. Every time when I was talking on the phone and an email or text would come through my phone would shut off and turn back on, and go through this reboot thing for a long time. I got a different phone from my boss and it never did that. Call Blackberry and report it to them. I know I did and they'd never heard of it, but they didn't treat me like I was crazy. Maybe they can help?

Antenna automatic shut off problems for blackberry pearl

I had this problem a few times, but only when I let the battery drop so low that the connection turned itself off to save what little life the battery had. Once that happens I just had to wait for the battery to charge back up so the connection could reestablish itself. If this is the case, just plug it in and give it time.

Todo a hard reset, First press and hold the power button, while holding the power button use the tip of the stylus to gently press and release the reset button. wait for the logo to appear then release the power button.

when you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your hand held press up on the 5way navigator to finish the reset
