    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.

Some times I only get sound when I have earphone in


The jack where the headphone plugs in is probably damaged. When the headphone is plugged in the internal speaker is disconnected. The switch is part of the jack and does not reconnect the internal speaker when the headset is unplugged.

No sound for the phone


sometimes plugging in the headphone jack will cause my phone to not have sound even when I pull the plug out of the jack. I've learned to just stick the plug in and out a few times and it gets it going.

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.

Palm Centro has a faulty headset jack. I can hear sound through the (Plantronics, wired) headset, but no one can hear me, neither through headset nor without a headset. Centro acts as if there's a...


i had this happen to me recently and found out whats wrong the phones kinda slow and thinks the headphones are still plugged in and if you take out the battery and put it back in it saves that you had somthing plugged in and dosent help. For some people they can fix this as easily as plugging the headset back in and pulling it out slowly but for me this didnt work so what i did is, i turned on pocket tunes and you souldnt hear anything and make sure your sound is turned on, then take a small pin and stick it in the headphone jack and wiggle it around untill you hear somthing and then quickley pull out the pin.
Hope this helps

Speaker problem


you wont, it will sense off of the jack as to which output method to use. If the jack is bad and the device cannot communicate with it, it will remain in its current state.

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.

No sound


I had this problem as well. I would get sound from headphones but unplugging them I had no sound from the builtin speaker.

When you plug in your headphones it moves a thin piece of metal in the jack which interrupts a connection (this is a good thing) so it can know when to disable the internal speaker. When you unplug your headphones the piece of metal moves back and it enables the internal speaker again.

I was able to fix this by taking apart my x51v and bending the piece of metal a little while the headphones are plugged in so that it will contact better when the headphones are unplugged,

To take your axim apart there are 4 screws on the back underneath the rubber grips that you need to take out. Then you can just slide a finger nail up and down each side to remove the front and back of the casing. The back you will need to swing out from the bottom since it hooks over the headphone jack. I unplugged the small wire that connects the front half of the case to the guts using a tiny flat screwdriver.

Inside on the back, there is a black plastic plate that is held on by 4 more screws. Take that off.

Now you can see the headphone jack. I plugged in my headphones and used a small flat screwdriver to push against the headphone jack on the bottom piece of metal on the right side with the axim face down. You can observe the piece I mean by looking at the side of the headphone jack when you plug and unplug headphones. It moves perhaps 1/32 of an inch.

Your goal is to bend the piece of metal closer to where it is when no headphones are plugged in. The only way to bend it properly is to do it when the headphones are in.

Sorry if this isn't clear enough. I'm not sure if this is a permanent fix or not but it's worked for me.

My psp speakers dont work the head phone jack came loose and only plays out of one head phone and the up joystick doest go up all the way in a game so i walk slow, can i fix these problems and how ???


You have either what is called a dry joint on the headphone socket or the headphone socket is broken.

When you plug the headphones in it switches off the speakers, so if the socket gets damaged or becomes disconnected from the board the speakers will also not work.

you need someone with VERY good soldering skills and a spare headphone socket to repair or replace the socket

Couldnt say whats happening with the joystick, maybe a bit of the headphone socket has got jammed in it, you probably wont find out untill the psp is opened up

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.

Speaker Doesn't Work


If you use a plug in set of headphones often, you have probably caused the contacts to spread apart inside permanently. The only solution (if that is the case) is to replace the headphone jack, or to (for the brave) attempt to insert a pin inside the jack and open the contacts so they are not pressed against the outside of the jack assembly.
