Question about Palm Tungsten C Handheld

1 Answer

Lost operating system

I have a Palm Tungsten C that quit working for me a couple of years ago. It will turn on, but seems to have lost the operating system as it only gives a blank screen. I did get an T2 to replace it, but the screen got cracked in an accident I was involved in. I am wanting to know if there is any source to put the operating system back into the C?

    I have tried the hard reset a number of times. That is why I am asking about a way to restore the operating system to the Palm. THe operating system program itself seem to be lost from memory.

Try an Hard Reset : Press the reset button and hold the Power button. Hard Reset erases everything on the Palm and reinstall PalmOS

    the operating system is in ROM (Read Only Memory), it looks strange that the program is lost (did you use program like JackFlash or JackSprat), maybe an hardware problem?
    Maybe try to disconnect/reconnect the battery and then try for an hard reset again?

It will not turn on. It is 3 yrs old.


If it is not turning on at all then more then likely the battery is dead. Try plugging it into the charger and leaving it for over night. Then try turning it on. If that doesn't work you may need a new battery. I would not recommend doing this yourself s it involves some soldering. I had a friend of mine change my battery and it didn't quite work right after that. I am also including a link for the free chat feature that palm has. I have used it several times and have always had very good results. Best wishes.

Please use the free chat feature that palm offers. I am not sure of any other way to charge your palm. Here is the link. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see Palm Chat. Click on the Chat Now link and follow the instructions. Best wishes.

My Tungsten E2 is not charging. It has been with me for almost 4 years now. What seems to be the problem? This is not the first time though I encountered the same problem. 3 years ago I encountered the...


I had symptoms with my Tungsten E2 where the charging icon would show up when the charger was connected, however, it didn't seem to charge, because when it was removed from the charger hours later, it would still show the same percentage of charge (as read by touching the battery icon while in the favorites screen).
Tried resetting the unit, reconnecting multiple times, different charge cables, and it was always the same.
I thought it might be time for a new battery, so to check it out, I got my T-5 Torx driver, removed the four case screws, and carefully pried open the case from the top (the bottom has hooks that have to be disengaged by sliding the case half downwards after they're separated from the top)
Measured the battery and it seemed to be okay, and after unplugging the battery connector and reconnecting it, it worked normally again. Charged quickly back up to 100%, and the battery is fine.
It looks like something may get out of sync with the battery charge circuit, and by simply unplugging the battery to allow it to reset, it restored operation, no replacement battery needed.

Lost Memory


Curiously, my setup is also set to "do nothing" for some apps... but changes on the Palm for those apps are saved to the PC, as they show up in Palm Desktop.

First thing to do is BACK UP YOUR "GOOD" BACKUP DATA ON THE PC. It is easy to accidentally lose everything there, and they you're screwed. Default location is C:\Program Files\PalmOne\XXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the first six letters of your Palm's User ID.

Next thing: Check in PD; are your contacts there? If so, they should reappear on your Palm after a hard reset.

If that does not work, set the conduits to "synchronize" and try again.

Sadly, too many people find out about backups the hard way.
