    I've been a Plam user for many, many years and feel this T/X is my last! My external speaker hasn't worked since a month after the warrenty expired (7 months old) and now it constantly resets itself in an endless loop. It has become, unfortunately, an unrealiable device with the WORST costumer support in the industry. The Oalm software is terribly unstable and querky on the best of days and useless on others. As much as I hate to lose my contact list, I'm going to either a Window's Base (WITHOUT the Palm name attached) or iPhone!

    My speakers quit working unless I use a plug-in earphone. Does anyone have a "fix" for this?

    My husband has moved on to a Treo & I just started using his old palm tx in hopes of having a single calendar that was mobile. I figure out how to sync and get my Outlook calendar on the palm, but without the sound the alarms don't help much. I have to remember to look at the palm to see the ! flashing. If I could remember to do that I would not need the portable calendar. It work fine with a headset, but nothing without. I tried the WD40 and no luck.

I have this problem too. It is probably the jack in the TX. Mine only plays through one channel. It can be repaired as well.

Another option you can try is getting drivers to run a bluetooth wireless stereo head through it. It's some dough to do it but it takes care of the jack issue.

No sound from internal speakers after using headphones


The headphone jack has a switch in it to disable the speakers when the headphones are plugged in. This switch has stopped functionong. Look in the jack eith a magnafying glass to see if there may be lint or some other object holding the switch open when the headphones are not plugged in. Otherwise it's time to replace the jack.

Headphone jack is an output not input jack. Your going to need a cord to go from your headphone jack(output) of your phone to audio input on your receiver. The cord has a mini stereo plug to the phone and RCA plugs of left and right to your receiver auxiliary input. Good luck..

I dont think the JACK is the problem, I suspect a bad headphone wire (intermittent) or an incorrect driver, headphone jacks in laptops are software controlled, (no mechanical switch inside) if you hear sound in both the headphones and the speakes it is a driver issue, try updating the driver, if the headphone wire is erratic it can fool the software that controlls the input and do crazy things also...

Good luck!

Hi Lauren This is the process of elimination which i would follow in a similar situation: -check cable going from computer to speakers, make sure both ends are plugged in correctly; -ensure sounds are not muted on your computer;
-try to play a song using another program such as windows media player. If this works, it's most likely the iplayer program which has been muted. -If none of this has helped, try plugging the speakers into a different device, such as a stereo headphones jack, ipod headphones jack, even a TV headphones jack. If the speakers still do not work, they are probably no good.
Hope this helps, Benji

Headphone Jack Problem


Go to the icon tray and double click the speaker icon. Have a look in the Advanced controls to see if you have taken the mute off the pc speaker. There might also be an option to play sound on the pc speaker simultaneously with the headphones. If so, uncheck the dual play box so the sound will not play through the pc speaker when you have the headphones plugged in.

I purchased a used Palm it works fine but I have no sound for calendar alerts. I can't even play the alerts to see which one I want. Can this be fixed.


If you plug in headphones, do you have sound in them?
If so, then the problem is either the built-in speaker or the headphone jack.
If it's the speaker, then you're in for a pretty involved fix involving soldering little tiny wires. Do-able, but not for someone just learning how to use a soldering iron.

If it's the jack, then you might get lucky and fix it by inserting and then removing your headphone's plug.

I've had this style of jack get a bit of dust in it before, and basically think headphones are plugged in even when they're not.

Let me know if you've got sound in headphones, and we can take it from there.

No sound in my palm centro


I had the same problem, you probably were using headphones with it and the phone still thinks they are pluggeg in you can bring it to the store or plug the head phones back in give the phone a second to recognize what is plugged in and then remove the headphones slowly. if that doesnt work throw it into traffic.

I have also had the same problem, and I discovered that it may be caused by a little sensor in the headphone jack which enables the external speaker. Sometimes it gets stuck in the "off" position. Try plugging in and removing the headphones, that should solve the problem.
