Question about Palm TX Handheld

1 Answer

Palm Tx keeps short circuiting

When I turn my palm on I keep getting a window that features:record, edit and options. Then I cannot seem to get the calendar to function for me. I may be crazy, but when I charge the lithium battery, I seem to be able to use the functions once again. Do I need a new battery? I use my Palm every day and I don't run the charge down below 50%, but the battery is now 15 months old. PLease answer...I feel so dumb.

    I am terrified of doing a "hard" reset. I tried the reset and then the up button and it may have worked. Apparently I got caught in a loop and didn't realize it...

    Thanks for the opportunity to clarify.

    Have you tried backing up the unit and doing a hard reset?

Hi,
It sounds like the battery might be dead. If I were you I would take advantage of the free chat that palm provides to their customers. I have used it in the past always with good results. I am including a link to that page. Best wishes.

I am having problems with my Palm TX touchscreen, I touch one letter and another one moves


HI,
I am sending you a link to a Palm support page. There is a feature that allows you to do a live chat with a Palm technician. You have to try the options and then I believe the chat feature will show up. Let me know if you need further assistance. Best wishes.

Calibrating touch screen never ends. just keeps on displaying targets, I just keep tapping


The Palm TX is notorious for digitizer failure which is what it sounds like you have. The are 3rd party solutions such as power digi which you can google. However it seems that the best method will be to replace the digitizer with a glass one. The plastic digitizer that Palm originally installed is not very reliable over time. There is a seller on e-bay that specializes in this and other Palm repairs. I believe it's called itsnotthere. You can also try to do it yourself. There are numerous demos on the internet that show how to do this if you are handy. Hope this helps.

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 keeps retting.


I followed the instructions posted by bab2000 in brighthand.com. I pressed the UP scroll button and then press and release the reset button. It took awhile and several tries but it worked. I then hotsynced and voila I am enjoying my palm TX again.
Thanks.

I would reinstall the system software from the Palm CD. If you are using the TX cable, it could be bad.

Palm TX Handheld - Delete all records


Hi, the best option would be a hard reset. Before doing so, i would suggest doing one lase hotsync.

at the back of your pda, there is a reset button. press this. be prepared. as it is resetting, press and hold the power button as well as the up button. hold these for like 3 seconds then release. it will then ask you whether you wanted to reset it. press the up button once again and release. it will then reset the pda.

if these instructions are still difficult there are some at palm.com. best of luck.
