You can change the function of any of the buttons at the bottom to open a different application. Here's what I did. I never use the To Do button so I went to Pref and changed the To Do button from To Do to Welcome. Now if it needs to be recalibrated, I just press the To Do button and it opens the Welcome screen. I can still access To Do from the main menu if I want to use it.

Cannot digitize


After looking at MANY posts on the web, I resolved this issue by repairing a corruption in my outlook data. I thought I needed new hardware and there are those that will sell it to you but note this fix and try it first. Yes, your outlook data issue can mess up the palm data and system and create problems with the touchscreen and digitizer such that you can't use the stylus and/or cause an endless digitizer loop even after resets.

To repair your outlook data create a shortcut to your "scanpst.exe" on your desktop and run the repair from there. You need no new software - this file is in windows office already and can be found through a system search or web search if you don't know where it is.

Are you syncing the new device to the same username in Palm Desktop as an older device?
If you are, this will cause problems on the new device. When you sync the device, it saves the device settings, 3rd party apps, preferences, etc. in the backup folder in the username folder on the PC. When

you sync the new device it copies the contents of the backup folder for the old device to the new device. This will cause corruption in the settings for the new device thus causing erratic behavior of the new device.

Looks like you may need to hard reset your device and rename your backup folder

Go to http://www.palm.com/cgi-bin/cso_kbURL.cgi?ID=887 and follow the directions to do a hard reset. Next before you hotsync your data back over you will need to rename your backup folder, to do that go here;

XP
C:\program files\palm or palm one\[hotsync username]\ and rename your backup
folder to backup.old


Vista
Start-->documents\Palm OS Desktop\[hotsync username]\ and rename your backup
folder to backup.old

Then hotsync to your current hotsync name and all your contacts, calendar,
tasks, and memos will come back over.

Show file extensions for XP or Vista

XP
If you can not view file extensions on your PC I would like you to open a
folder go to Tools-->Folder Options--> View (tab) and under show hidden
files and folders uncheck hide file extensions for known file types.

Vista
Open control Panel go to Folder Options--> View (tab) and under show hidden
files and folders uncheck hide file extensions for known file types.

My palm is not working


Had the same problem. You will have to hard reset - in doing so you will lose all data on your device. Sorry I know no other way.

Step 1: Charge your device overnight.
Step 2: While holding down the reset button (back of unit) hold the power button down. Release the reset and wait for the Palm screen to appear. When it does, release the power. Press the "up" button when prompted for full restore.

You should now be working. Word of warning: I continue to have problems with HotSynch. The version recommended by Palm (v. 4.1.4) locks up my system, as if it is emulating another device (no buttons work, screen wonky, etc.).

Best of luck!

Forgot my palm pilot password


You will need to do a hard reset...this will wipe all the data and reset it back to factory specs...

1...While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus (or a similar object
without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole
on the back of your handheld.
2... Wait for the Palm Powered™ logo to appear, and then release the power button.
3... When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your
handheld, do one of the following:

• Press Up on the 5-way navigator to finish the reset and show the touchscreen.
• Press any other button to do a soft reset.

TREO Screen freeze?


Have you reset the unit by taking the battery out? Power it up after doing so, just like a home PC - it should work again.

If that does not work, the touch screen driver may need updating...

Serial USB connection to an old palm


This is a common issue, you might want to try these, in hope 1 of them will work: - make sure there's no problem in the configurations of the devices and their both connection is to USB. - there's probably a collision with anther device that is connected to the palm, try doing uninstall to everything, do a hard reset, run " activesync" or " hotsync" and reconnect. - there's maybe a problem in the drivers, try reinstall them. - if you are using 3.16 pm, there's probably a collision
