    try first putting back your old batteries and see if it starts with no message. There may be a problem with new battery. If you cannot get rid of a message then is a software problem, and you will need to reinstall it. The most likely is that the system had been damged when the battery went off.
    To troubleshoot it further we will need your PDA make and model.

    Regards

    Apart that I could not know in any way that it was a casio 5500b, as you did not post the model (thanks for letting me know). Your device has firmware (and also a basic OS) installed like any system based device. Your casio has a copy of OS and firmare stored in ROM. To restore it to original settings you need to follow the reset procedure below:

    All-Reset procedure

    Turn power off.

    Press reset button, this is a pin hole buttona t the back of your casio use a pencil or a thin pointed object.

    At this point you should get displayed "are you using the unit for the first time?"

    Press N, if you say Y it will delete all your data and restore factory settings.

    You will get set time, and then home screen

    If the above did not work you will need to repeat the procedure answereing yes at first question, but this will delete all data in your diary.

    Here is Casio support page, in case you need a repair service, but in your case you shouldn't. Do the reset above , if it does not work repeat procedure.

    Regards

    If you have the manual, the reset procedure should also be illustrated in your manual, check troubleshooting at the end of your manual.

Remove the battery, wait a few minutes, and replace the battery while holding down the power button for 15 seconds. You may have to restore your data.

Pantech Freezes Up


I had this problem, and ended up having to do a Master Reset. If possible, back up any data on the phone prior to doing this because you will lose all contacts, etc.

You can perform the master reset by removing and and the Sim Card then re-installing the battery. Open up the slider and hold the S and L keys on the QWERTY keyboard. While holding these keys, turn the phone on. Continue to hold the S & L keys until you receive an 'error missing sim card' screen. (It still took a while to progress beyond the AT&T screen...don't give up...it gets through it eventually.) After you get the missing sim card error message, turn the phone off, remove the battery, re-insert the sim card, re-install the battery, and then turn the phone on normally.

It will now behave like a brand new phone, without any of the data saved.

Screen says JVM Error 513 Reset


install Blackberry Desktop on your computer and download the latest Blackberry Phone software from your carriers webite and instal it on your computer. Then connect your phone WITHOUT the battery to your PC and Click on App Loader. Follow directions and install the Software. The Installation WILL FAIL THE 1ST TIME. Thats normal. This time connect the phone WITH the battery and try the same thing again and you will have a brand new phone. except your Data.

Blackberry error 348


Hope that his helps:

Here is how I was finally able to get my phone to work.

When the battery was very low, the phone would no longer activate the radio function. I found that when the radio was not trying to connect to the network, I could enter my password and adjust my network settings.

I thought the issue may have had to do with the "data services" function so I diasbled this function.... and the phone worked with this function off (after a light recharge).
Just to confirm I had found the cause of the lock-up, I enabled the data services again and the phone immediately locked again.

Here's how I was able to work around it.

Go to the "manage connections" icon and open it up. Select "mobile network options" and the top selection should be to turn the "data services" fuction on or off. What I found was that once this was off, the phone worked just fine but obviously all access to e-mail and other web-services was shut down. At least I had my phone......

If you are not able to get to the data services area because the phone keeps locking up at the "error code 348" screen (grey screen of death), then you can try this also if you have your security on the phone set to allow phone calls while its still locked.

Hit the "R" button to reset the blackberry or if this doesn't work, remove and reinsert the battery and it will reset. Note, you may have to use the "on" button to get the phone to turn back on after removing and reinstalling the battery. As the phone is going through the process of starting back up, and before it goes back to the error code 348 screen, you can do the following....
At least this worked on my unit.

At the Verizon screen which was the last screen to appear before the phone would go back into error mode, I was able to select the option to "place call".
I only had about 10 seconds to do this and get a call going before the phone would lock up again so choose a number and call it quickly....
For some unknown reason, the phone will not lock up at the "error code 348 screen" while a call is in progress. So I called the office and then hit the "select" button (one with all the little dots on it next to the mouse ball) and chose the option to "unlock" the phone. Once unlocked I could get to the "manage connections" icon as noted above and choose to shut down the "data services" function again.

Sorry for the long-winded explanation.
This was a major headache for me when I arrived in Puerto Rico and could not access any numbers on my phone because it kept going back to the error code screen every time I reset it. When I figured out that it was simply a limitation or issue with the data services function and I could use the phone and access my call logs, contacts list, etc., even without e-mail this was a great success.

Hope you find this useful.

As a side note, if you don't have your phone set to "allow calls when locked" in the security section of your settings in the options section.

If all else fails, you can get to area where you can unlock your phone if it sits long enought at the error code 348 screen. The unit will get to a point where the battery is too low to allow calls but you can still unlock it and maniupulate the settings. If the phone is totally dead, just charge it for a few minutes and adjust the settings before it charges enough to try to reconnect to the network.


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

PDA intermitently powers up then freezes on "Palm Powered" screen


I had the same issue. What you need to do is to hold the power on/off button than press the reset button. The screen turns off (get black) than the will ask you to make a hard reset (which end up deleting all datas). The Palm will power on like the first time you turned it on after you bought it. Than depending which version you have it will possible ask you which language you will like to have as default. After selecting you neet to setup the rest. If this is done you sync it all data will come back :-)
