What directions have you been following. On they have both guides and videos. They may help you. In the column on the left of the home page, second section (section labeled "Company Info" :) fourth item down is "Repair Directions". You can find take-apart guide and video for the T3 on that page.

How to insert G1 battery

The G1's back comes off. At the top end of the phone (away from the charger port), with the keyboard open, there's a tab where the back latches to the body. You have to open the keyboard to get to it. With the keyboard open, you can push that little tab outward to release the catch. On mine, the back makes a distinct click at that point and separates from the body along about half its length. To get it off the rest of the way, pry gently and it will come free.

Once the back is off, you can see the battery compartment. The SIM card slot is at the bottom of the battery area; you don't need to take it out to replace the battery. If the battery is in the phone, you can lift the top end of it out of the phone by lifting at the little recess at the top end. To put the battery in, slide it into the battery well with the contacts (three little brass strips) meeting the corresponding contacts at the bottom of the battery well.

Then, you can replace the back by hooking it on at the charger-port end and snapping the upper part of the back onto the body.

When you remove the black plastic cover - it's a little ribbon all the way on the righ side near the edge - You can't really see the ribbon until you lift up the little silver cover. Then remove the white slip and put back it. Did the trick for me.

Palm centro wont boot

Do a reset. You will lose all items on you device.
Take battery out. Put it in and hold the power button on till you see the palm logo the second time. Release when you see the 2nd logo. It will prompt you for pressing up to delete and reset. Press Up. It will take some time to reset and reformat but please wait. 
After that your phone should come to the setup screen. I would hotsync after you setup to get your contacts  back.

You'll need a very small flat screwdriver and ease the case open from the back center to the corners. Then the sides should pop loose.

hey, i had the same problem and i fixed it. i took the battery out and saw the 4 golden tabs behind the battery. there was two tabs that u could pull out. i lightly pulled them out a little bit. the problem was that the tabs wouldnt hit the battery to charge it. thats why it put the tri colored screen on the front. also my charger fit into the charging hole in the phone, but it had to be moved around to much that it did not fit exactly. I have been rough with the charger so it moved the inside of my phone around. i put the charger in the phone and moved it around gently around untill the light lit up on the front at the top by the word at&t. after it was completly charged, i turned it on and it worked perfectly. i hope this helps in whoever may have this problem because i know it sucks!

Blank screen

Try soft reseting your phone. If that doesnt work then try hard reseting.  To soft reset take the stylus pen and push in the little hole on the bottom of the phone. You should feel a little click and then your phone will restart. Wait until your phone  starts up again and if it still isnt working then do a hard reset. 
 To hard reset, hold down the green send button and the red end call button at the same time and continue to hold them down as you then push your stylus pen into the hole on the bottom of the phone untill you feel the little click. Your phone should start to reset.  Be warned you will loose any information saved to the phones memory ie: phone numbers, pictures, personal settings. Anything saved to your memory card should be ok.
If your screen remains blank after trying both resets I would suggest taking it back to where you got it and and have them fix it or replace it.
Hope this is helpful.

Dell Axim X30 internal backup battery

I like PDAs a lot, and my own is no exeption. What I don't like however, is when they stop working due to being neglected over longer periods of time. My trusty ol' X30 have unfortunately seen declining use ever since I stopped working and went back to school, and sometime last fall/winter I managed (don't ask me how) to unplug the power cable from the cradle. So there it stood, with no power, til about last week when I tried to power it up again.

After I ran through the initial setup in Windows Mobile 6, I was greeted with a red dialog telling me that the backup battery was critically low and needed to be charged. So, I left it charging overnight hoping that would fix it up. No dice. The battery showed up as "Abnormal" in the power settings dialog, and running the diagnostic program from Dell's support pages showed that it had battery had 0% charge.

Consulting Google, I quickly gathered that this was a somewhat known problem on the Axim x3* series, and the only way to solve it was to replace the battery. I tried to find any detailed guides on the process, but exept for some scattered message board posts there was't much usefull info. I therefore decided to document what I did, in case somebody else runs across this exact same problem.

Dissection time:
Disclamer for morons: Follow this at your own risk. **** can happen, so don't screw around if you don't know what you are doing. If you are that kind of person that leaves electronic devices in more pieces than they originally came, just send it back to Dell and they'll fix it for you (it's probably cheaper than getting a new).

What you need:
  • Replacement battery: Varta V20HR
  • Small Philips screwdriver (I used size #00)
  • Strong tape or conducting glue to attach the wires to the battery (I used duct tape)
  • Small knife to open the plastic cover on the old battery

Step one is to open the device. First remove the main battery, any SD-card you might have in the slot and the stylus. Turn the device so the screen faces DOWN, and with something pointy (I used my nails) remove the rubber feet located in each corner. You should now see 4 screws as pictured to the right (bigger picture), so get a small screwdriver and unscrew those.

Next you got to separate the back plate from the rest of the unit. Just start in a corner and bend it outwards til it clicks out and continue this around the unit. It might be very stiff if it's the first time you remove it, so it can be smart to use a flat screwdriver to help with the bending. When it's all loose, just take it off.

axim_2.jpgYou should now see something like the picture on the left (bigger version). Remove the three screws highlighted. Keep in mind that the topmost screw also holds the antenna in place (if you have the WiFi/Bluetooth version), so remove the screw, then push the antenna outwards to remove it (you need to do this on order to flip the mainboard later).

The three arrows at the bottom of the picture show the cables that needs to be unplugged to get access to the battery (Note: The arrows point the way you need to drag the cable to get it loose, not at the cable itself). The leftmost one (arrow pointing left) is to the speaker and is easy removable by pulling it towards yourself. The bottom (arrow pointing down) can be more tricky, there are two brownish hinges on each side of the white connector that needs to be pushed outwards. Once they are loose pulling the cable out should be easy. Third one (arrow pointing right) is the battery connector itself, just drag it the same way as the arrow and it should come loose.

Now from the left side of the motherboard simply pull bit to the left (to get the audio jack/selection wheel out of their grooves on the frame) and the fold the whole board over to the other side, giving you access to the underside. Here you should see the battery itself (in a green plastic cover, taped to the frame), and you can easily remove it.

axim_3.jpg Now take the knife and cut open the green battery cover. If you want to reuse it (and I suggest you do) be very carefull how you cut it open (I split it in the middle, and bent the old battery out). As you should be able to see now the actual battery is point welded to the contacts, so just removing the contact plates is out of the question. I suggest that you just separate the wires from the contacts (just pull them off) and then reattach them on your new battery. You are free to tackle this as you see fit (I used duct tape), but keep in mind that you SHOULD NOT use a soldering iron directly on any kind of battery, especially not as small as these (the heat will destroy them). Also be sure to get the polarity right, red wire goes to (+), black goes to (-).

When the wires are properly fitted put the new battery back in the green cover (or something else that insulates it from the mainboard) and reseat it where it used to sit on the frame. It can be smart to use some extra tape or glue to attach it if the glue on the frame itself is getting weak. Now simply reattach the cables and screw everything together, and your PDA should be as good as new. I slapped mine in the cradle right away, and after about 30 minutes the "low backup battery" warning disappeared, and the status changed to "normal" in the power settings. bigsmile.gif Matt Brown"Southall Technologies & Advertisement" 912 376-0472 web: ""
