Hi, from the sounds of your situation, im sorry to tell you that your address book is gone. If you have hotsync with your desktop before, you may be able to retrieve a copy of your address book from your last sync. Otherwise there are companies available to recover data from pdas but their services are very expensive.

Device got slightly & briefly wet this morning, despite hard metal case. Hard reset gives date/time screen & notice of low battery. Nothing else works including hard reset, charging, and on-off


I think palm will repair it.

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.

here is your manual in PDF form
www.palm.com/us/support/handbooks/m500series_ug.pdf

if the unit was new then you would charge it for about 10 hours .. but since its not likely new then it doesnt hurt anything to just leave it on charge ... you can even operate the palm while its charging .. over night charge should be enough to get pretty close to full ... the palm internally automatically turns off the charge when the battery is full .. so you dont have to worry about over charging .. if the unit wont come on then you can do a "reset" (back at top)

My palm treo 600 won't hold a charge


Replacing the battery should work. I had the same problem and ordered one from pdaparts.com (the actual lynk is http://pdaparts.com/ and the product code you want is PA1547 (you can filter your search by Palm Treo - left side of the page).
You will also need a Torx Set (5 & 6). The replacement instructions can be observed in http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GHT&Category_Code=_treo_600_battery
Hope it helps

Zire 71 screen


Two possible scenarios:

1. Loose LCD screen connector inside the pda. You will need to open it and put it right.

It requires some level of skills to open it, repair it, close it properly.

If not precautions are taken, there are two major risks:

a) Break the flat ribbon cable of the universal PalmOne port (used to synchronize it and charge it).

b) Break a tiny switch that detects when is slided the top side so the camera application turns on.

2. LCD screen is damaged. It needs replacement.

You can get in touch with local repair services for it, and request a quote for its diagnostics and repair.

If after get some quotes, you think that they are excessive, you can contact the Ebay seller Great_items_2004 to receive a lower quote for it.

Water damage; time for the graveyard?


I think the cost of a mobo and battery would end up costing more than a brand new pda.

If you are handy with a soldering iron, check the solder points for the battery and the ac port....don't know if they could have rusted or even lifted because of the water damage.

Aside from that, I wouldn't know what to check. I think it's amazing your pda works at all.

Also, there is a guy by the name of Chris Short...just google him. He does a lot of Palm repairs for reasonable prices, and he has good customer service.

Goodluck.
