If the pda was made in 2005, it's likely that there is a small watch battery somewhere which saves your settings, date, time, etc. If this "CMOS battery" needs to be replaced, you're probably losing all of those basic settings whenever you let the main battery lose too much of a charge. Hopefully, it's easy to access.
To set the time: Press the date/time button (next to the feed button) to make the time appear on the display. Then press and hold the "Time Set" button (the "=" button) until the first digit of the time setting begins to flash. Then just enter the current time with the keypad (3:30 is 0-3-3-0) and use the "AM-PM" key (the "x" button) to toggle am/pm. After you have the time entered, press and release the "Time Set" (=) again to set the new time.
To set the correct date: Press the date/time button (next to the feed button) to make the date appear on the display rather than the time. Then press and hold the "Time Set" button (the "=" button) until the first digit of the date begins to flash. Do the same as before to set the new date. Don't forget to press the Time Set button after you set the date or it will not record the change.
If for some reason you need to reset your calculator, turn it over and stick a pencil into the reset hole next to the battery compartment. That will reset everything.
This thing set under my bed, lifeless til I was looking for something else and decided it was time to get this clock working!
(Use the stylus pen for best results) After putting in two fresh batteries (or hit the reset button if your batteries are fresh). This will reset the clock and the 'clock' icon in the upper lefthand corner will be blinking. Now press and hold the display area where the hour of the day is displayed. The entire time will start blinking. Now start tapping on the blinking hours to increment the clock slowly to the correct hours (it will cycle all the way thru military time and regular time, so choose what you desire). Press and hold with the stylus to increment quickly. Do the same with the minutes, that are blinking too. When time is correct, tap the 'clock' icon once. The 'clock' icon will still blink, which I believe is correct operation.
To set the date, tap on 3rd icon down from the top left (it looks like a little calendar). This will put you into the date section of the clock (if you do nothing, it will cycle back to the clock, after ten seconds, as a default). Before it cycles back to the clock, press and hold with the stylus pen right below the word 'DATE', until the the entire displayed date starts blinking. Tap the first two digits of the year to go down in years and tap the right two numbers of the year to go up in years. Tap on the month number to increment; do the same with the date number. When all date entries are correct, either tap the 'calendar' icon, or let the clock sit for ten seconds: it will cycle back to the clock.
I guess you can set the alarm in a similar method.
Some Palm handhelds will "lose" days if they are not turned on for a period of time. This can be corrected with a soft reset. If this happens to you on a regular basis, you can use DayLossFix Hack to keep your Palm on the right date:
