Re: Help Dead Battery

When you recharge the palm, sync it again with your computer.

If the Palm has been synced with this computer, it will pull up a list of profiles for you to choose from.

If you select the profile name given to it before, it should restore everything you had on it from the last successful sync.

It will not turn on. It is 3 yrs old.

If it is not turning on at all then more then likely the battery is dead. Try plugging it into the charger and leaving it for over night. Then try turning it on. If that doesn't work you may need a new battery. I would not recommend doing this yourself s it involves some soldering. I had a friend of mine change my battery and it didn't quite work right after that. I am also including a link for the free chat feature that palm has. I have used it several times and have always had very good results. Best wishes.

Cannot charge new battery

Battery is not a known issue for this model, However 3rd party batteries causes some self discharge issue. Make sure the battery is not defective. The little charge circuit on the battery might have different threshold voltage also. Normally battery should show around 4Volts when fully charged. After save your data try full reset and complete discharge of the battery and try again

Good Luck

My palm battery went dead.

Nope, the memory is violatile and will disappear if you lose your battery charge. If you have sync it before it loses charge, u might have a chance to recover the data

My Tungsten E lost all my data due to a low battery!

Once the data is lost, there is no way to retrieve it unless you had a back up on your PC or on a memory card

Hi : This means your battery must be as dead can be. Therefore it seems to be getting straight power only when you plug in the charger. Or your on/off button is dead. Are you able to turn it off/on when you have charge plugged. If so then I suggest getting a new battery for the E2 Palm and you should be back up and running. If this is not the case then it is your on/off button in which it could be just the contact or the switch itself. I can suggest someone in US if you like, else I can handle it but I am in AUS.

Lost Data

The simple answer is.. i'm sorry to say it so simple.. no. Here is why. PDA's have volatile RAM memory. This means that when the battery, back-up battery are completely drain out, they cannot keep up powering the RAM memory. When the power cuts off, everything in the RAM memory is lost. The operating sistem and other files specific to it, doesn't get erased as they are stored separately in another kind of memory called ROM. This doesn't get errased when power drains out. The reason why PDA's doesn't have only ROM is because this type of memory is slow and the PDA will operate (read or write data to it) in the same slow manner. Therefore they use the RAM memory wich is faster. The best advice I can give you now is never to let the main battery to drain out completely. Also regular back-ups of the data inside the PDA are usefull for situation where unexpected occur. Feel free to ask more questions and always remember to rate the answers provided from this site ;). Good luck.
