If it works when it is plugged into a A/C source but will not work when you are solely trying to use the battery only, then you may need a new battery.

### Okay, I'm working on a scooter for my nephew that originally came with (2) 12 volt 12Ah batteries minus the charger. and I know I need to replace them with (2) batteries of the same 12 volts and lets

not exact, to charge apropiate needs 10% more than nominal voltage. if not, will not charge the batteries.
And the charger its very important because you can over charge the battery.An example,if you have a 12 Amps Batteries each one if you put it in series will be 24 Volts.at parallel conection will be 12 volts but the double of Amps.
At serial connection will be 12 Volts the amps will be the same but the volts will be 24.

The charger at 12 Volts must be 13.8-14.5 DC Volts and divide the Amps in Hours.
The charger at 24 Volts must be 26-28 Volts. to charge well.

The charger for 12 amps batt example must charge 2 amps per hour at 6 hours = 12 Amps.(2 Amps Charger by 6 Hours Charging= 12 Amps.(Fully Charged.
3 Amperes Charger needs 4 Hours to charge 12 amps Batt.
5 Amperes Charger needs 2 Hours charging an a quarter
All of this is at DC Current.

Luck.

It could be the battery. may be the charger is stuck ,did you Connect the E2 to the charger then soft reset ?this should reset the charging circuit on the Palm.after that Let it connected to the power adapter for a good 2 hours. After that, disconnect the Palm and see if it will turn on. If not, then you need to get a replacement battery for your Palm.hpe this helps.pls do let me know thanks

### I stopped using my m505 for several months. How long until it will be charged enough to turn on? Its been charging now for at least 2 hours and nothing.

I would charge it over night. If the batteries went completely dead sometimes it takes an extended period of time to charge them. If that doesn't work try using the free palm chat. I have enclosed that link. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see Palm chat. From there click on the link that says chat now.
Best wishes.

### How do i fix a zire 21 palm it wont turn on, charge,work nothing

Hello.

From Palm support:

1. Press either the Date Book or Address Book button to see if
you can turn on your handheld that way.
2. Perform a soft reset: Use the tip of an unfolded paper clip
(or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the
reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your
handheld.
3. Make sure the power adapter is plugged securely into a
working electric outlet and is firmly connected to the
handheld. (If no outlet is available, your handheld can also
be charged through the USB cable, but this takes much
longer.)
Note: Your handheld does not have an indicator light to indicate that your handheld is being charged.
4. Charge for another three full hours.
5. If your handheld now turns on, check the charging-battery icon to ensure that your handheld is being charged. Example:
a. Connect the handheld to an outlet and turn it on.
b. Tap Home .
c. Look for the lightning bolt on the battery icon at the top of the screen.
d. If you do not see the lightning bolt, repeat steps 3 and 4.

Hope this helps.

### It worked fine one minute and about 10 minutes later it would not turn on at all. Batteries not the problem as plugging it into the power cord or the computer hookup does nothing.

Its because ur internal memory battery is dead or no charge so please keep the unit charge in all possible ways for about 2 hours. Some palm tops have base stand and a seperate place on the base stand to charge the normal battery. So make sure u leave the unit for charge for a longer period of time say 5 hours.

Thankyou

### My palm pilot m515 wont turn on or charge

try turning it on while its on the charger .. if that works then you might need a new battery .. if it doesnt then do a "reset" ... unscrew the top off the stylus and use it to push the reset button on the back (top center) ... if that doesnt get it going then you can do a hard reset but that will erase all your information (like telephone numbers and such) ... you do a hard reset by holding down the on/off button while pushing the reset .. if it works on the charger but quits when on battery then you need a new battery ..

### M515 Palm Pilot

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 pilot will not turn on

Has it ever worked? If new, return immediately. If it did work before then either the battery or the charger are the likely causes for this problem. If you know someone with a similar model then you can swap these to test.

### Palm m130

If it needs to be charged, it can take up to 3 hours to do.  While it is charging you won't see any lights on the Palm.  Only the screen being turned on will indicate the charging level with the icon.

### Palm Z22 will not turn on

I had this problem in the very beginning and a few times after. What worked is the following.
Put it to charge for at least half an hour. You won't see it is charging or anything.
Then, while connected to the charger, press the reset button.
Have you guys tried it like this already?
