Question about Palm TX Handheld

2 Answers

The display on my Palm TX is upside down. I reset it and it comes back upside down. Sometimes it reseted fine, but not anymore. I tried syncing and it worked once, but not anymore. The sensitivity of the screen is fine, but the display is upside down; if I touch the area where the command would be located if it was upside up, it responds, but I have to guess it because what I see is upside down.

Hello.

All I can suggest is a Hard Reset, which would wipe the handheld of all data:

Hold the Power button on Top of Palm down, then press reset button. Release the reset button and continue to hold the power button down until the second Palm logo comes on screen and progress bar at the bottom of screen completes.

If you release the power button and it asks which language you want to use you have done the this correctly.

Hope this helps,

I would consider this more of a hardware problem than software. some component is going faulty.. most probably the display IC or LCD itself. but first, i would recommend re-soldering the LCD connector. then test. check picture below.
thanks

No CD; reinstalled from website ; trying to sync Palm; windows keeps asking for driver;which was downloaded with sync manager and desktop


Did you download the latest Manager for your OS?


1) Download the Desktop manager
http://kb.palm.com/wps/portal/kb/common/article/32859_en.html


2) manually reset the TX
While holding the Power button, use the tip of the stylus (or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device.
The RESET button may be somewhere else on the back of your particular device.
First you'll see a palmOne or Palm logo and a progress bar. Keep holding Power.
Then you'll see a grey circular Palm Powered logo. Now you can release Power.
When the warning appears, press Up to confirm the hard reset.
If a language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for your desktop software.

3) connect TX to PC and sync.

My Palm TX is not showing anything on the display. The hot sync is working. Only has Blank White screen. What is going on?


Hard reset. Hold the power button as you reset. Be careful, because it will erase everything on the pda.

Tx will no longer sync with outlook 2003 or outlook 2007 calendars. Software reinstalled, tx reset, latest updates for syncing with outlook 03 and outlook 07 loaded, still won't sync to outlook calendar...


I would recommend contact the palm free chat. Here is a link for that. I have a TX and have used the chat feature myself and always with good results. Scroll to the bottom of the page and then you will see Palm chat. From there click on chat now and follow the directions. Best wishes.

When trying to sync, error message reads (sys 0505)(0,841).What can I do? For Palm TX handheld


Hi,
Try to perform a System Reset (see article linked below). If it works to break the loop, you should then be able to delete the offending "My Palm" software and perform a Hotsync to backup your data to your desktop.

If that doesn't break the loop, you'll have to perform another Hard Reset. Sometimes, a Hard Reset takes a couple of tries to get it right, since it's easier to do it wrong than to do it right.

This article discusses the various types of Reset for different Palm devices:

http://tinyurl.com/zlwza

Until you break the TX out of its loop, you won't be able to get the data from it.

To see the Palm OS version running on your TX, enter the Menu, select Info, then Version.


To Get Out Of A Loop:
  1. Perform a SYSTEM RESET by doing the following:
a) Press the UP Button
b) And THEN press and release the RESET Button
c) When you see the second Logo (Palm Powered) release the UP Button
d) Now check if your SYSTEM RESET worked by going to Beam Receive. If it goes back to Off even after you put it to On it means you were successful

2. Now Perform A SOFT RESET by pressing and releasing the button in the back once

  1. After a soft reset, a logo screen appears, followed shortly by a Preferences screen asking you to set time and date.

  1. If a soft reset does not break it out of the loop, you may need to try one of the other resets below.

  1. Do an INCOMPLETE HARD RESET by holding down the power (on/off) button on your device.

  1. While holding down the power button, Press and release the reset button on the back of your handheld device

  1. Keep the power button pressed and release it when the “Palm Powered” logo appears.

  1. A message will now appear warning that you are about to “Erase All Data”. And this will happen if you press UP or DOWN.

  1. Instead you press left or right to begin a soft reset, leaving your data intact.

  1. Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Sorry this was so long, I tried to put everything down that might help you.

Palm tx wont turn on


When the battery is discharged, it is best to charge it overnite.

Have you reset the TX?
Hold the power button down and push in the reset button on the back of the TX with the stylus. Hold the power button down until you get the screen where it ask you if you want to erase/reset the unit. click yes to reset.
Then when it comes back up, re-sync it with the Palm Desktop on your computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

First you need to reset the TX:
hold the reset button on the back of the unit, then turn the power on. Hold the power button while releasing the reset button. The TX will power up to the screen where it will ask you if you want to reset it to factory default.
Afterwards go to this link,

and download the Palm Desktop/Sync software and install it onto your PC. After installing the the Palm Destop software, connect the sync cable to the PC via the USB, then connect the cable to the TX and push the sync button.

Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.

Cannot sync palm tx to laptop computer


Reinstall the Palm Desktop from this link:

PS: you may need to uninstall the Palm Softwrae on the computer, before you download and reinstall it.

Perform a hard reset. Hold the power down and push in the reset button on the back of the TX. Let go of the power after the screen comes up .Afterwards, connect the sync cable and let the OS setup the TX. Once that is done, hit the sync button.

Touchscreen


I had a similar same problem. It occured when pluging or unpluging in the USB cable into the bottom of the Palm TX when the other end of the cable was already pluged into a live USB port on my PC.
The solution was to make sure the cable is unpluged first from your PC before you plug or unplug the cable into the bottom of your Palm TX.

Palm TX screen.


Upside down or just sideways? There is a "rotate" button on the bottom of the screen that allows you to go from landscape to portrait mode.
