Kinda depends upon what kind of glue. You /may/ be able to rinse off the electronics with distilled water ... however if the LCD is gunked up you really don't want to soak it in anything.

Palm TX - on/off button stays depressed; probably need to dismountle the unit - how to?

I hate to refer you somewhere else but YouTube has some great step by step "how to's"
I have a Palm TX and have taken it apart several times to replace broken screens or damaged digitizers. Let me give you a word of caution. Take your time......
This can make the difference between a good 30 minute job or a bad 20 minute job.
Since the button stays depressed it should be an easy fix. You'll have a couple screws on the back (none are under the TX label) and then you'll need a soft pry tool to pop the back panel off. That should expose the power button. In cases like these one of two things usually happen:
1. Excessive grime from fingers stick the button in the down position. Clean it off with a Q-tip and you're good to go.
2. The button has been struck so hard that the switch has been broken from its mount, in which case, you'll have to replace the switch if it can't simply be bent back into place.
Either way good luck! It's not too difficult if you are handy at these kinds of things but again...don't get in a hurry! I speak from experience! :-P

Need to fix blackberry trackball

When this has happened to me I've used one of those wet wipes or a Q-tip soaked with rubbing alcohol to clean it off. It usually takes a few wipes. Sometimes I've taken it apart and cleaned the trackball with the q-tip when it's gotten really bad.
Here's a link to show you how it's done:

I dropped my phone in the toilet

take your sim card out and any memory chips. These can usually be salvaged. You might get lucky with the phone, but most likely, even taking it apart and letting it dry, it won't work correctly.

I have a blackberry curve 8310 and i had to replace the outside clear screen on it and when the tech put it back together and sent it back it was not put on correctly and now it is full of dust underneath...

You can prise off the clear screen with a small thin flat-head screwdriver or the like, give it and clean and replace the clear screen again. If it loses its stickiness when you take it off, then dab a couple of drops of glue along the edge before replacing.

Beats having to take the phone completely apart

Dropped in bucket of soapy water for 3 to 4 seconds. Does not work even after drying out.

Take out the battery and any memory card or accessories . Use a hair dryer on low heat around the buttons, any openings and battery compartment for a few minutes.

Repeat the step 3 times and then leave it in warm dry place overnight..with any luck it should start working again.

Good luck.

Palm TX Touchscreen does not work

Search youtube for Palm TX Digitizer Replacement and Palm TX Take Apart Direction. If you think you can do it, or know someone who can, you can order a replacement digitizer on ebay for from somewhere like

Before ordering the part, you may want to start by opening the palm and cleaning the connecting ribbon cable contacts to make sure that a loose cable or oxidation has not caused your problem.

Life-Drive will not power on.

I don't know how much technical skill you have, but I had the same problem and the warrenty had expired. I thought it might be a battery problem. To make a long story short I unpluged the internal battery and pluged it back in and the system came on.

Won't sync to clean Palm

It may be due to a permissions issue on the workstation running the hot sync program
