SOURCE: I have a Palm TX.

Hi,
I,d suggest that you may have a sticking Button/Switch.
It appears that, another command is being constantly requested by the PDA. first check the battery regarding the amount of charge being held, and for how long. replace battery if discharging.
then i,d suggest having the PDA Serviced, constant usage of these with sweat/food particles/general dust. can cause a button to stick/jam. for example the power on/off or volume up/down button (s) may be making a constant contact, rather than make/break.

Replace the Battery. This has either a faulty Or Discharging Battery.

i,d suggest returning for replacement or refund, if it,s new/warranted.

How do you do a hard boot?


To hard reboot your palm tx, press the reset button at the back and hold the power button at the same time until the grey palm screen shows up. The moment it shows, let go of both buttons. It will later ask you to delete all data so just say yes.

Using the desktop, is there anyway to move(either to the memory card or the PC) or delete files on a Palm TX. I apparently used to much of the devices memory and now I can't ge to the home screen(it...


If you're able to hotsync, then yes. In the desktop, delete notes or other items (Does the TX have voice memos? Those would be a quick way to free up a lot of space!)
Perform a hotsync, and your Palm should then have some free memory.

If you're not able to hotsync, then nothing you do in the Desktop will have any effect on the Palm.

But, I'm skeptical that this is the real problem. It sounds more like memory corruption, and a hard reset is going to be the real fix.

When trying to sync, error message reads (sys 0505)(0,841).What can I do? For Palm TX handheld


Hi,
Try to perform a System Reset (see article linked below). If it works to break the loop, you should then be able to delete the offending "My Palm" software and perform a Hotsync to backup your data to your desktop.

If that doesn't break the loop, you'll have to perform another Hard Reset. Sometimes, a Hard Reset takes a couple of tries to get it right, since it's easier to do it wrong than to do it right.

This article discusses the various types of Reset for different Palm devices:

http://tinyurl.com/zlwza

Until you break the TX out of its loop, you won't be able to get the data from it.

To see the Palm OS version running on your TX, enter the Menu, select Info, then Version.


To Get Out Of A Loop:
  1. Perform a SYSTEM RESET by doing the following:
a) Press the UP Button
b) And THEN press and release the RESET Button
c) When you see the second Logo (Palm Powered) release the UP Button
d) Now check if your SYSTEM RESET worked by going to Beam Receive. If it goes back to Off even after you put it to On it means you were successful

2. Now Perform A SOFT RESET by pressing and releasing the button in the back once

  1. After a soft reset, a logo screen appears, followed shortly by a Preferences screen asking you to set time and date.

  1. If a soft reset does not break it out of the loop, you may need to try one of the other resets below.

  1. Do an INCOMPLETE HARD RESET by holding down the power (on/off) button on your device.

  1. While holding down the power button, Press and release the reset button on the back of your handheld device

  1. Keep the power button pressed and release it when the “Palm Powered” logo appears.

  1. A message will now appear warning that you are about to “Erase All Data”. And this will happen if you press UP or DOWN.

  1. Instead you press left or right to begin a soft reset, leaving your data intact.

  1. Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Sorry this was so long, I tried to put everything down that might help you.

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.

WiFi Icon on Palm Tx not showing on taskbar


You should try reloading the software back into the TX. In order to do it, you will have to erase your TX memory. Make sure you back up your files first.

To erase the memory press the reset button until the reboot screen appears. Hold down on the power button until the erase memory screen appears. Select yes. Reload software from Palm CD.
