Question about Palm TX Handheld

TX IS DEAD

I tried to turn it on and have no response. I tried all buttons, tried to reset, have plugged into computer thinking the battery was dead. I have not dropped it or hit it against anything. It just won't come on.

Thanks
Steve

    A week or so ago mine did something similar. I found it inexplicably dead, and so plugged it in to charge. While plugged in, I tried to turn it on, and it would not come back on. For the next couple of hours, I tried to get it to come on to no avail. I finally gave up that day, assuming I needed an entirely new battery. The next day, it did turn on, although I lost all of my data and had to restore. This sequence has happened multiple times.



    I have now determined that this was caused by the Palm TX turning itself on periodically, draining it's battery without me knowing. This seems to be happening when it tries to retrieve gmail, and fails. When it turns itself on, the exclamation mark is flashing.

    I have observed my Palm turning itself on and off . I had the same issue with it being dead and took me a while to narrow down. Does anybody have a fix for this problem?

SOURCE: TX IS DEAD

The T3 will appear dead until the battery has SOME charge. A totally dead battery, even though plugged into a charger, will not let the T3 turn on. You mention a previous charger problem. Could be a bad charger, or a bad battery. Check to see if the charging light is on on the T3 when you think you are charging. If it is not on, try another charger. If it is on, you may have a bad battery.

The Palm TX handheld will not turn on. It looks dead. Maybe just the battery is dead. Where I can find the battery


Hi,
I have a PalmOne Tungsten T5.
I'm not familiar so much with the TX, but does it not have a charger? I have to charge mine periodically.

Cannot turn Palm TX on after listening to music. Button protection was set to "on". Now I cannot turn it on with any buttons. Tried charging with wall charger overnight. The case normally gets warm on...


Something similar happened to me. I finally gave up on my wall charger and tried connecting my PDA to my computer and pressed reset button several times. I left it connected overnight and It was working by the next morning. My guess is that my battery was completely drained and my wall charger quit working.

Hard reset and charging problems


do the hard reset again .. hold the power button down while operating the reset in the back .. keep the power button down for a few seconds .. that should bring up a display "delete all" .. you can choose to do so .. that will be a hard reset .. now if the battery is dead and the charger is not working then nothing will work for you .. you might have a bad charger .. often the end that plugs into the unit develops a broken wire inside the cable ..
the m515 wont charge from the sync cable (shame) it needs the external power adapter .. make sure the connections on the charger and palm are clean .. the power adapter is 5 volts and i think about 1 amp .. )(center pos) if you want to try another adapter .. the tip is rather standard ... also you can get a universal power adapter from radio shack that will work on just about anything .. you just plug in a suitable tip .. the tip for your palm is an "A19" .. the power adapter is "IGO" wall adapter 23-1401 model PSM08VADJ ... that seems to work nicely and it plugs directly in to the palm .. so you can work with it plugged in .. when the charger is working there should be a lightning bolt thru the battery symbol .. it sounds like you already know that .. if the battery has gone open then it may not indicate a charge .. but the unit should still work while on the charger if that is actually working ....

HP rx3115 hard reset


Had the same problem with my hp rx3115 . Worked fine, then the next day dead. power button, lower buttons, or outter reset button didn't work to turn it on. Okay so, i thought it just needed to recharge. Used computer cable for active synchronizing that also recharges, still dead. Then cable just for recharging. Finally comes on. Charged it all the way up, synchronized it, unplugged it, few minutes......dead. The battery is no good.
