Palm TX not powering up

My Palm TX was fully charged, and then all of a sudden went off (black screen. I did a reset and it would come on briefly and then it would power off again. I tried to reset it again, and it did the same thing. Now, a reset will not even work.

Your Palm will auto-off after 30 seconds to 3 minutes of not using it, depending on the auto-off setting. If that's not it, you may have conflicting software installed. I had a lot of software installed on mine before and it got to where it wouldn't come on. I had to do a hard reset by holding the power button in while pressing the reset button until the screen comes on. This restores the device back to original state. You will have to reinstall all additional software that you want to add, but it will take care of the conflict. If that doesn't work, then the battery is probably no good, or the device is no longer functional. Hope this helps.

Hard rest plam tx


Hi,
Here are the steps to do a hard reset. Best wishes.

1. Press and hold down the power button.

2. While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus (or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole on the back of your hand held.

3. Wait for the Palm Power logo to appear and then release the power button.

Palm tx wont turn on


When the battery is discharged, it is best to charge it overnite.

Have you reset the TX?
Hold the power button down and push in the reset button on the back of the TX with the stylus. Hold the power button down until you get the screen where it ask you if you want to erase/reset the unit. click yes to reset.
Then when it comes back up, re-sync it with the Palm Desktop on your computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

This can happen if the application is corrupted.  Try downloading a new copy and added the new program to the Palm desktop installer progam.  The battery should be fully charged as well before performing a new installation.

Palm Tx problem after hotsync


I had the same issue, the palm is stuck in a loop,
I got mine out of this by pressing the power button while the palm was on the screen where the bar goes across the bottom, it asked me if I wanted to erase all data, I said yes, and it reboot normally, I went thru the setup, and all is o.k.
I did have to try this several times, but it eventually worked. Hope this helps, although it looks like this is an older question. I hope you have resolved it.

Phone Wont Turn On


unfortunately, you'll have to do a master reset on your phone. You'll loose all of your data. TO do this.. power off the phone. Then press the center select button (silver button on navigation pad) then power on the phone while keeping the sliver button pressed. You should get a Master reset prompt.. click Yes.

White screen with vertical bands


I have experienced the exact same thing. No dropping the Palm. No moisture. Just turned it on at work and it had the lines. Fortunately the data was still available for a synch. Now I am ordering a complete LCM and digitizer from PDA Smart.com. See http://www.pdasmart.com/palm-tx-repair-parts.htm for the pricing. It isn't cheap, but I believe it will fix the problem.  Let me know what solution you came up with and how the issue is now. Thanks, er
