My Palm m505 will not synchronize with the pc. Everything is plugged in, the battery was new about 3 years ago and sitll keeps a charge. My last synchronization with the pc was Nov 20th. I hate to lose this device...though I know it is outdated. When I open the Palm Desktop, the HotSync is not active. Any ideas?

Not sure which software you're using but with mine there is a shortcut in the program menu to start HotSynch. I know that's a duh, but ya never know.
Second option is to reinstall the Desktop software. You may have a corrupted driver or cfg file.

Lost contacts on my Palm Zire 31


No, only if you synchronized with another device beforehand. Using Palm Desktop, eg, you could synchronize and get the list back.

A couple weeks ago, after plugging my HP laptop back in after using it, I noticed that my battery did not start charging immediately. Since then, the power level in the battery has slowly been dropping...


Yes, you have come up with the right answer.

Most laptop batteries do well to last 1 year before they wear out. You have done very well to stretch out 3 years on this battery. Good work!

If you want some help finding a replacement battery, please reply with the full model number of the laptop and I'll track one down for you.

Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

Haven't used my m505 for several years. It won't charge/start. Can it be revived, perhaps w/ new internal battery?


If it won't take the charge it is definitly the battery. You can try to cycle it a few times by charging and discharging it a few tmes and it might revive. If not time to replace. Batteries can be $14 and up so google and look around for the best deal.

I stopped using my m505 for several months. How long until it will be charged enough to turn on? Its been charging now for at least 2 hours and nothing.


I would charge it over night. If the batteries went completely dead sometimes it takes an extended period of time to charge them. If that doesn't work try using the free palm chat. I have enclosed that link. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see Palm chat. From there click on the link that says chat now.
Best wishes.

Outlook Calendar synchronization failed in palm treo 650


hi dear

BACK UP your Treo 650 software and data BEFORE doing the following.

1. RESET the Treo 650 back to default set by holding power buttom following by reset the treo.

2. There is a way to reset the voltage regulator in the Treo ; believe is by holding the RESET for > 3 seconds. Believe need to take out the battery in out during this process. Can't recalled the correct steps. This could could reset the Treo's power regulator.

3. TRY reinstall your palm software with minimun software or 3rd parties one, this software could be running in the back ground which drain the battery.

Try above steps might help.

Mine also got the same problem last two weeks, my treo could felt there is kind warm sensation if it took out from my waist pouch after leaving it for sometime on the table. BTW, the battery could felt quite warm also.

If yours also behave the same which I believed the Treo got some kind of contact problem which draw more power then usually does.

Now, mine got no more warm sensetion after carry out above steps. It gets better as Compared to last two weeks ago BUT not that good as compared previously when it can last 3~4 days after a full charge.

Good luck

No power


If you got it a few years ago, or leave it on charge for several days, you might need a new battery. If thats not the case, if you droped it the battery jumper may have come loose, to open the device just take a small hex key (you can buy a set at buck or two that is fine) and take out the screws. the jumper is holding the back plate on the device. Just press down on the conecter and see if it will turn on (the buttons/frame may pop out when you open it. The charger is the last possible thing to test if all else fails, get a multi meter and test the charger for something under 9 volts. If this doesnt work then just buy a new palm because palm is really hard to deal with.

Palm m505 Won't Start Up


I have an M505 with the same problem. After taking off the back cover, I found a defective (short circuit) SOT23 device nearly centered just below the expansion card slot. The markings are A5RGC, but I have been unable to verify whether this may be a programmable UJT (BRY61), a transistor or a diode. Does anyone have a schematic diagram, or kno where to get one?

Ibm workpad sync & port issues help!


You have your Hotsync software set to use a com port instead of USB. Right Click on the Hotsync icon on the lower right part of your PC desktop and change it to USB and you should be good to go. The IBM Workpad is just like a Palm. I have the Workpad C500 which is actually a Palm M500. If you have a Workpad C505 it is a Palm M505. Anything you can buy for a Palm M500 will work with a C500 and anything you get for a M505 will work with a C505. If you do NOT have a USB Sync cable for your Workpad I suggest you do what I did... Just get a combination Sync and charge USB cable at Staples or Best Buy for your M500 or M505 and use it. It was about 20 but you can get them cheaper on the Net. I hope this helps you!

Can't synch my contacts, calendar, tasks or notes to my Palm m505


In order to remove the username from your Palm m505 you need to go into memo pad, create a new document, now the ticky part, you need to right in grafitti a cursive L (hand written low case l) followed by tapping on the screen twice (will produce one period), then the number 5. To test this you can follow the same procedure but change the number 5 to number 4. You should end up with Handheld does not have a usernameand all of your data will still be retained in your Palm. Now when you go to synhronize on your computer select the new user on your computer.
