The lightning bolt indicates that the battery is being charged. I will stay on as long as it is being charged either in the cradle, or using an external charger. If it stays on after it is removed from any external power source, there is a problem with the unit and it needs serviced.

How do i fix a zire 21 palm it wont turn on, charge,work nothing


Hello.

From Palm support:

1. Press either the Date Book or Address Book button to see if
you can turn on your handheld that way.
2. Perform a soft reset: Use the tip of an unfolded paper clip
(or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the
reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your
handheld.
3. Make sure the power adapter is plugged securely into a
working electric outlet and is firmly connected to the
handheld. (If no outlet is available, your handheld can also
be charged through the USB cable, but this takes much
longer.)
Note: Your handheld does not have an indicator light to indicate that your handheld is being charged.
4. Charge for another three full hours.
5. If your handheld now turns on, check the charging-battery icon to ensure that your handheld is being charged. Example:
a. Connect the handheld to an outlet and turn it on.
b. Tap Home .
c. Look for the lightning bolt on the battery icon at the top of the screen.
d. If you do not see the lightning bolt, repeat steps 3 and 4.

Hope this helps.

Palm lifedrive wont' boot stuck on palm screen


This sounds like the issue where the LifeDrive is stuck in a loop. You can see how to break the device out of the system loop on the Palm Knowledge Base article (26419) located HERE.

Hope that helps get you up and running again!

Fully charged put on cradle fatal alert/fatal exception/reset


the lightning bolt is normal ..its telling you the battery is being charged .. if you get an error code or if the unit quits working then you can do a reset or a "hard reset" ... the hard reset erases everything and will restore the unit to factory conditions .. to do a reset .. unscrew the top of the stylus .. that gives you a probe to push the reset button on the back (top) .. if you hold the power button in while you do a reset then it gives you a choice to "erase everything" .. if you accept then thats a hard reset ... if everything else fails .. do a hard reset .. you can do all this while its on the charger so if you have a bad battery that wont matter .. if the battery wont hold a charge then it can be replaced ..

Palm Zire 71 handheld does not come on, did a hard reset, nothing


Confirm that both the cradle and the PDA ports are clean and free of dust or dirty.

Also, check your AC wall adapter to confirm that is working. The output should be +5.0 volts DC. Any repair shop has a multimeter need it to check it in no time.

If everything appears is OK, then confirm the PDA is properly placed in the cradle, and that the PDA is not loose on the cradle, indicating that the port contacts are not touching.

Best regards,

Palm LifeDrive not charging


I had the exact same annoying problem. Easy fix though. Get the palm universal cradle. The power connector is either worn or loose and making partial contact. So when you use the normal adapter there might be a position that works but generally it won't. When you use the cradle the weight of the LD presses the contacts more and it will behave.

I went through a couple of chargers before getting the cradle and fixing it once and for all.

Just got Verizon 755p - can the power stay on while charging?


Try StOIC (Stay On In Cradle):

http://mytreo.net/downloads/stoic-stay-on-in-cradle,221.html

It's free and it works - the screen will stay on whenever the Treo is connected to charging power (e.g., in the cradle).

Enjoy!

Palm M515 hot sync problem


I have a similar problem with my m515. I have 3 palms and 2 sync fine but the 3rd isn't even getting to the computer. There is no recognition from the computer that the palm is trying to sync even though I use the same cradle for all palms. The ensuing message is, "the connection between your handeld computer and the desktop could not be established. Please check your setup and try again". My settings are set Local and Cradle/Cable.

Static electric discharge - IBM WorkPad c500, c505 (8602-60x / 70x) 2003-08-04


Palm Inc., the manufacturer of the IBM WorkPad, has recently informed IBM that a limited number of IBM WorkPad c500 and c505 models may be unable to use the HotSync function if a static electric discharge (ESD) takes place when the WorkPad is placed in the cradle. Palm Inc. has designed a new cradle for this condition. It has the Palm Inc. logo on it, but also works with these WorkPad models. Palm Inc. has a Web site that provides more information on this issue and also contains the Palm Cradle Exchange Program, which allows owners of eligible models to receive a new cradle. To determine if your WorkPad is eligible and to place an order for a replacement cradle, please visit the Palm Inc. Web site. NOTE: If you are in the Asia Pacific region, please contact the Palm Customer Information Centre in your country for information on how to recieve your replacement cradle. Links to this support information can be found at http://www.palm.com/asia/support/contact/asiapacificsupport.html NOTE: When ordering a replacement cradle from Palm, the entire IBM WorkPad serial number (16 digits) must be entered. The format is 1S8602MMMxxxxxxx (Where MMM is the 3 digit model number and xxxxxxx is the unique serial number).
