Need instructions on a hard reset

On your handheld, launch the Prefs application. Under General, select Security.

If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your handheld.

Once the password has been set, remove the stylus. Disconnect your handheld from the AC charger, if connected.

On your handheld, hold down the Power button.

While holding down the Power button, use the stylus to press the RESET button on the back of your handheld.

  1. While still holding the Power button, the screen will show the Palm logo and a progress bar. Then the circular Palm Powered logo will appear. Release the power button when you see the Palm Powered logo.

  2. A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your smartphone. Press UP.
  3. You'll see a series of Palm logo screens, then a prompt to tap onscreen targets. The Factory Reset is complete

Hi! I bought a referbished TX from you in January of 2009 (I think). It has been working great. However, the other day when I turned it on, the digitizer wouldn't work. Buttons work, everything else...

Disclaimer: I'm just a tech answering you request. I don't know who sold you the TX.

Have you tried to reset the TX?

First, save your data:
then reset:

While holding the Power button, use the tip of the stylus (or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device.
The RESET button may be somewhere else on the back of your particular device.
First you'll see a palmOne or Palm logo and a progress bar. Keep holding Power.
Then you'll see a grey circular Palm PowereWhen the warning appears, press Up to confirm the hard reset.
If a language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for your desktop softwared logo. Now you can release Power.

Then sync it to you PC.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Thanks, Joe

This happens a lot with Palm digitizers. The only permanent solution is replace the plastic digitizer with an upgraded glass type. Before considering that, see if removing screen protector helps. (yeah, didn't think so. Worth a try!) Try Powerdigi, a better calibration program. Get it from
It worked for me.

My Palm TX device is not initializing. it says "palm powered" then a loading bar starts at the bottom of the screen, then it turns off...and it repeats the same thing over and over again.

Have you tried a hard reset? In case you need to know how...Hold Power button on Top of Palm down, then press reset button, then release reset button and continue to hold power button down until second Palm logo comes on screen and progress bar at the bottom of screen completes. If you release the power button and it asks which language you want to use you have done this correctly.

I had a similar same problem. It occured when pluging or unpluging in the USB cable into the bottom of the Palm TX when the other end of the cable was already pluged into a live USB port on my PC.
The solution was to make sure the cable is unpluged first from your PC before you plug or unplug the cable into the bottom of your Palm TX.

Palm TX

do you have a screen protector? if so, i suggest checking to see if there is anything caught between it and the screen. there might be a speck of dirt or whatever that is causing that. also check for dirt accumulating around the edges.. hope that helps. good luck
