Question about Palm Tungsten E Handheld

1 Answer

Tungston E I tried to do a soft reset and all that happens is I get the Palm logo - blinking. If I hit the down key, it stops blinking. If I try to turn it off, it acts like a hard reset and comes up with the warning screen. A warm reset does the same thing as a soft reset. The battery was very low when I tried to reset. I am now charging it. Any suggestions?

    Well, I don't know if that answer was worth $10. My battery was working - it just needed recharging. Could it just suddenly go out? I made the mistake of trying to reset while the battery was low. I have not tried a hard reset - I am trying to avoid it. But if I have to take the battery out I will lose everything anyway, right? I do have most of my information backed up, but not all as I have been out of town. So how do I know if I need a new hard drive? What does that mean - buy a new handheld?

Is there a way I can revert my Palm Treo 650 back to original factory settings


Factory Reset for Treo 700p and 680 smartphones
If you've set a password on your smartphone, any hard reset will automatically become a Factory Reset. With this method, you'll enter a password and then perform a hard reset.
On your smartphone, launch the Security application.
2.If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your smartphone.
3.Once the password has been set, disconnect your smartphone from the AC charger and take off the battery cover. Do not remove the battery yet.
4.Hold down Power/End .
5.While holding down Power/End , remove the battery. Then insert it again.
6.While still holding Power/End , 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.
Keep holding the Power button during this screen. When you see this screen, you can release the Power button.
7.A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your smartphone. Press UP.
8.If you performed this reset correctly, the screen will go blank after several minutes, and you will not be able to turn on your device. The charging LED will not light up. (any other activity - such as the Palm OS logo and then the Applications launcher appearing - means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again) 9.Your device will appear "dead." To wake up your smartphone, perform a soft reset.

Z22 palm handheld touchscreen won't respond - i've done soft reset -- several times -- used the 5 way to bring up the touchscreen -- tapped and nothing happened.


Hi, Try doing a hard reset to see if this will correct the problem.

Hold down the power button and at the same time use the tip of your stylus or any other non sharp item and press the inside the reset hole on the back of your palm.
When you see the Palm power logo appear you can let go of the power button and also the one on the back of you unit.
It will display a message asking if you want to do a hard reset and that it will erase all your data. select yes by hitting the up part of your 5 way button on the bottom of your unit. This is the one you use to navigate around your palm screen. After it resets you wil then be prompted to reset the screen by tapping the targets. If it works great. If not then you have something wrong that needs to be looked at. Before you send it in go to:
www.palm.com.
Select pda and then your model. From there go to the support screen and do a live chat. This is free and they may be able to live you some help. Best wishes.

Have to reset Palm TX to power on sometimes


I have a palm TX and it usually just sits for a minute or two when I use blazer. I have also found out that the pda will always reset itself and it only freezes when it has a lot going on. It stays frozen for a while, but eventually unfreezes. As for the home button, it's probably worn down. My power button and my up button have almost completely stopped working.

When trying to sync, error message reads (sys 0505)(0,841).What can I do? For Palm TX handheld


Hi,
Try to perform a System Reset (see article linked below). If it works to break the loop, you should then be able to delete the offending "My Palm" software and perform a Hotsync to backup your data to your desktop.

If that doesn't break the loop, you'll have to perform another Hard Reset. Sometimes, a Hard Reset takes a couple of tries to get it right, since it's easier to do it wrong than to do it right.

This article discusses the various types of Reset for different Palm devices:

http://tinyurl.com/zlwza

Until you break the TX out of its loop, you won't be able to get the data from it.

To see the Palm OS version running on your TX, enter the Menu, select Info, then Version.


To Get Out Of A Loop:
  1. Perform a SYSTEM RESET by doing the following:
a) Press the UP Button
b) And THEN press and release the RESET Button
c) When you see the second Logo (Palm Powered) release the UP Button
d) Now check if your SYSTEM RESET worked by going to Beam Receive. If it goes back to Off even after you put it to On it means you were successful

2. Now Perform A SOFT RESET by pressing and releasing the button in the back once

  1. After a soft reset, a logo screen appears, followed shortly by a Preferences screen asking you to set time and date.

  1. If a soft reset does not break it out of the loop, you may need to try one of the other resets below.

  1. Do an INCOMPLETE HARD RESET by holding down the power (on/off) button on your device.

  1. While holding down the power button, Press and release the reset button on the back of your handheld device

  1. Keep the power button pressed and release it when the “Palm Powered” logo appears.

  1. A message will now appear warning that you are about to “Erase All Data”. And this will happen if you press UP or DOWN.

  1. Instead you press left or right to begin a soft reset, leaving your data intact.

  1. Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Sorry this was so long, I tried to put everything down that might help you.

I hv palm treo 750 and it stock on logo


Are you saying the the phone won't turn on or off?

Try to remove the battery out of it and leave it removed for about 10 to 20 seconds. Then put the battery back to the phone.

If you will get the same problem, bring your phone to the authorized
Palm Center. This may need to have a firmware upgrade.

My e2 frozen on the palm powered logo


Okay here it goes, your going to want to leave it on for however many hours it takes to completely drain the battery then you're going to want to recharge it back to normal charge, and try restarting it again. This will delete completely anything that is keeping it from restarting properly. If you did open up the machine without following "antistatic procedure" you may have fried a component on the board and then your in trouble
you'll need to salvage a board from another tungsten and put it back in your PDA and hope you put it back together right

Pls help me for power on fail


If your Treo loops or freezes during a soft reset, a system reset may help. Performing a system reset allows you to get out of an endless loop in order to uninstall a third-party application causing the looping: 1. Press the Battery Door Release button and slide the battery door downward to remove it from your Treo. 2. While pressing and holding Up , use the tip of the stylus to gently press the reset button on the back of your Treo. 3. When the Palm Powered logo appears, release Up . 4. Delete the third-party application that you suspect is causing the problem. 5. Perform a soft reset. The wireless features of your phone are not available until you complete this step. Good luck!
