Try pressing camera+record then pressing the little reset button for a few minutes. This might bring you to a hard reset menu. If you see an option to wipe the registry do that. All your applications will need to be reinstalled but your data should still be intact.

If that doesn't work try hold both the soft buttons and pressing the little reset button.

Make sure you hold the any buttons you press in conjunction with the reset button until the unit has restarted. Example: Press and hold power button, press and hold reset button until unit restarts, keep holding power button, release power button when hard reset menu shows up.

Visor Deluxe does not start


Hi.

The procedure below shows how to reset the PDA to factory settings after backing up all your personal data.
After backing up your data with HotSync, perform a hard reset, this will erase all applications and returns your device to its factory default settings.

To perform a hard reset:
1. Hold down the power button on the front panel of the PDA.
2. While holding down the power button, use a paper clip to press the reset button.
3. Release the power button.
4. You will get a message warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on the PDA, do the following:
Press the top scroll button on the front panel
to complete the hard reset and display the startup screen.
If you press any other button you will do a soft reset, that will not fix the problem. In that case restart the procedure.
5. After doing hard reset the unit will return to the initial factory state. All third party installed applications will be deleted, and setting will be reported to factor default.

.




Connect to HotSync and do a backup of the PDA, then do hard reset on Palm.

If the PDA is not detected by Hotsync, then there is an additional problem.

To troubleshoot problems given by third party application you do a backup, then rename the backup folder containing third party application data to Backup.old, and do hard reset.

After that you start restoring applications from backup.old one at the time, when one application jams the Palm, that is the responsible for the error message.

Procedure is described here.

Regards.

Changed pin # for locking/unlocking dell axim x51v dont know it


You'll have to hard reset your device, in ordere to get past the password request phase. You, most probably, know that a hard reset will restore your device to its factory defaults, thus deleting all the programs you have installed, as well as your personal data and settings.
Anyway, to hard reset your devcie, press the Power button to turn it on. Then, press and hold the Power button, and, whilst keeping it pressed, press the reset pin with the stylus pen. Release the buttons. A screen asking for confirmation will come up. Confirm the hard reset procedure by pressing the Contacts button (or cancel it by pressing the Mail button).
By the way, if you happen to miss your device's user guide, you can download it from this location.
Hope it works for you.
Regards, Carlos

I forgot my password and i want a new number please delete my password it should bea1b2c3 but it said its incorrect what should i do write back


The only way I know to bypass the password request riytube is hard resetting your device. You, most probably, know that a hard reset sets your phone to its factory defaults, thus deleting all your personal data, as well as the applications you have installed. To hard reset your device, firstly, turn it off. Then, press and hold the ENTER key. Whilst keeping this key pressed, briefly press the POWER button. Release the ENTER key when a warning screen comes up. Then, press the VOLUME UP button to hard reset your device, or any other key to cancel the hard reset procedure.
Hope you are able to have your device fully functional again.

Cheers!

Non recognition of password


That would be very difficult.

In my experiences of trying to get all the data out of a pda when its in a locked state, when trying to access it from the pc the pda decided to shut it self down.

In the end I had to perform a hardreset to get it to work again.

In theory, if you could somehow tap into the ram and copy all its contents into your pc. But this ram might be protected or encypted.

Its very difficult, since your data is stored in RAM witch will empty itself when the power is cut. (battery removed or other shortcircuit)

If you know the password you are typeing is correct and it still wont login, then there is most likely a software problem witch would require a hard reset.
