Could be a loose battery connection. Or perhaps a bad battery. If you think you are up to it you can check your battery connection yourself. The E had a soldered connection -- difficult to replace. The E2 had a socketed connection -- easy to replace. I do not know about the T3. There are "take-apart" videos on pdaparts.com. You may be able to find a replacement battery on eBay.

My palm e2 screen brings a frozen screen even after reset and no button whatsoever works, it can reset but freezes on the screen again,that is 0 alerts. even the power button does not work, only reset,...


You can try doing a hard reset. A hard reset will delete everything on your device. All your data will be deleted, and formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a hard reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything. Here is the link for directions for the Hard Reset:

Please use the free chat feature that palm offers. I am not sure of any other way to charge your palm. Here is the link. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see Palm Chat. Click on the Chat Now link and follow the instructions. Best wishes.

You might be able to find a charger on Ebay too.

Have you tried a hard reset? Just remember a hard reset will delete everything on your device. All your data will be deleted, and formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a hard reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything. Here is a link with the directions:

If that doesn't work then try the free palm chat service they offer. Here is a link to that:

Hard Reset on Tungsten E2


for hard reset press reset hole and same time hold power button and release after 10 seconds choose yes when option given to erase all data. Please make sure you have backed up your data prior to hard reset as it will erase all personal information and set everything to factory default

My Tungsten T3, from time to time, turns itself off within 2-10 seconds after I turn it on. The delay is random; the problem is random (it doesn't do it for weeks, and then it apparently goes into a snit...


Issue rather seems software related, if Battery issue usually comes up with low battery alert.
A full (Hard) reset can be a good solution to be sure if its Software related. If you do so make sure you have backup of all your data as full reset will set everything to factory default and will erase the personal data

Good Luck

Lost Memory


Curiously, my setup is also set to "do nothing" for some apps... but changes on the Palm for those apps are saved to the PC, as they show up in Palm Desktop.

First thing to do is BACK UP YOUR "GOOD" BACKUP DATA ON THE PC. It is easy to accidentally lose everything there, and they you're screwed. Default location is C:\Program Files\PalmOne\XXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the first six letters of your Palm's User ID.

Next thing: Check in PD; are your contacts there? If so, they should reappear on your Palm after a hard reset.

If that does not work, set the conduits to "synchronize" and try again.

Sadly, too many people find out about backups the hard way.

1 palm + 2 computers = successful hotsync?


Yes and.. no.

It is possible to have one Palm synchronized to 2 PCs (I do this with my T3), just make sure that you don't end up with any "overlapping changes" - items that change on both machines.

However, since Syncing takes a full backup of the Palm, having two completely different sets of data on two different machines is complicated at best. If you are are not careful you could lose all your info by accident. One way to get around this would be to put everything on on the T3 and use categories to separate work and personal items - which is what I do.

However, if you are dead-set on keeping all of your work stuff in one place and all your personal stuff in another, I would recommend that you get a second T3.
