Hi i have a bb bold and was jus bb sumone wen it started doin crazy stuff? when i pressed the topvright key it done the letters nm ?? the arrow button done b$. i turned it off and now the a is typing u and...

try pulling the battery out and that will allow it to hard reset. you can also try alt, shift, del holding those keys at the same time is just like a computer reset when you have an issue. or as a last resort you can go to settings/general/security/ press the bb key and do a master reset on the phone, which will erase all device content BUT it will restore your phone to default factory settings from original date you pulled it outta the box.

Frozen Blank Screen - soft reset doesn't work.... Do NOT want to do hard reset because all my data will be lost and it is my life line. I am panicking. Please help!

If you back up all your data on your desktop it will be restored with your next hotsync after the hard reset. I recommend the hard reset but if you really don't want to try that they I suggest you try using the free palm chat. Here is the link for that. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see palm Chat. Click on the link that says chat now and follow the prompts. Best wishes.

Palm z22. wont startup without holding the up arrow key and doing a soft reset. Then Task icon wont load and some of the other applications wont load

Try doing a hard reset. Warning: A hard reset will erase everything on your device. All your data will be removed, and formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a hard reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything.

Here are the directions:

  1. Press and hold the Power (on/off) button on the front panel of your device.
  2. While holding Power, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus. Gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device (where's the reset hole?).
  3. If you see a progress bar (see below), keep holding the Power button.
  4. Next, the Palm Powered screen will appear. Release the Power button when you see it.
  5. You'll see a screen that asks: Erase all data? YES = "up" button NO = any other button. Press UP on your 5-way navigator to complete the hard reset.

Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Note: A hard reset does not delete the current date and time. It does restore other settings to the factory default.
The progress bar On some devices, you may see a Palm or palmOne logo and a progress bar first. Do not release the Power button until the second, circular Palm Powered logo appears. From there follow the on screen directions and then do a HotSync. Best wishes

Zire 71 screen does not sense stylus input -- even after performing a reset.

Try doing a hard reset. This will erase everything on your zire and restore it to brand new settings. To do a hard reset make sure you have everything backup on your palm desktop. Here are the steps for the hard reset:

1. Hold down the power button and then depress the small hole in the back with the tip of your stylus2.gif.

2. Continue to hold them both in until you see the Palm2.gif logo.

3. Let go of both of them and then follow the onscreen directions. You will want to answer yes and use the 5 way navigation button on the bottom of your pda and hit up so that is completes the reset. After that you will have to set up your touch screen and go through the tapping the target. After you have gone through all this then do a hotsync. It should clear up your problem. Best wishes.

Im clueless

Just had to do this to my phone last week...

1: To perform a "Hard Reset" you'll need to first sync to a computer to save all your contacts and messages ect... or use a PIM backup program that can be found for free online. You need to do this step!!!! A hard reset clears the phone and restores the factor settings and software to original state! Make sure you have cab file for programs you wish to reinstall after the reset!

2: After saving all data hold both hard keys to the left and right of the direction pad and using the stylus press the reset button located on the bottom of the devise next to the charging port... It took me two tries its easiest to press the hard keys while holding the phone upside down...

3: You will know you pressed the keys correctly when you are promted with a on screen warning... Do you wish to continue with a hard reset yes or no... or something like that. use your stylus to select yes only if you have saved all your contacts ect first!

4: Your devise will restart and reinstall you factory software... you will have to reinstall any and all aftermarket programs that you wish to use. This includes the lastest version of .net framework that you may or may not have updated to.

Axim after a hard reset!

Well to make a long story short, after the hard reset I lost all data, and I put the axim in the cradle and it sync-ed but I had to create a new name for it, and it never brough the software that I had originally installed on the unit back... is that common and everytime we'll do a hard reset on it, will we have to re-install all the software and assing a new name to the unit, if so than it is ridiculous!!!
