Toshiba 740E handheld PC problems with hard reset & battery

The unit had problems that could not be revolved despite being sent back 3 times (a 4th time if you include the recall). Toshiba could not fix the problem and refused to offer further support. Problems: - The unit intermittently hard resets for no apparent reason. It has done this at least 35 times). - The battery completely discharges in <12 hours after being fully charged, even though it is turned off. There is no warning that the battery is low. Opinions?

It's best kept in its charger whenever possible. One of the issues with it is that the buttons tend to get "hit" and it wakes up and discharges quickly. Even on a full charge, it can drain the battery in just a few hours. The issue is worsened by the supplied case. People have noted that using another case or even gluing felt pads in just the right spots of the holder helps immensely.

During operation of the TI-Nspire handheld it may be necessary to reset the device. Circumstances which may require a reset include; keys not responding, device will not turn on or a garbled display. To reset the device:
• Remove the keypad (for TI-Nspire with ClickPad, TI-Nspire with TouchPad, and TI-Nspire CAS with Touchpad) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS with ClickPad) and remove at least one battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5 seconds, reinsert the batteries but do not turn the handheld on.
For the TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handheld units with ClickPad:
• Hold down [home] [enter] [P].
• While holding these keys press [on].
For the TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handheld units with TouchPad and the TI-Nspire CX and TI-Nspire CX CAS:
• Hold down [doc] [enter] [EE].
• While holding these keys press [on].
Please Note: For TI-Nspire Family handheld units that contain rechargeable batteries you can alternatively hold the above keys while pressing the [reset] button on the back of the handheld rather than removing the battery for 2-5 seconds.
• The device will boot up as in the previous reset, but will display a menu with the following options. Please try options 2, 3, and 4 in that order.
• 1: Cancel - The most non-intrusive reset option; no changes are made, the unit restarts.
• 2: Delete Operating System - The operating system will be deleted without deleting any documents on the system.
• 3: Delete Document Folder Contents - This will delete the user's documents, but will not delete the OS. Selecting this option is the same as using the RESET hole on the back of the unit.
• 4: Complete Format - This will delete the OS and all documents for a total wipe of the handheld.
Please note that the second and fourth option will require that the OS will need to be reinstalled

My Palm treo...will not dial out, or accept phone calls (with ringtone)! This happened all of a sudden,without me doing anything abnormal to the phone. Please advise! Sincerely, Tim McLinskey

You could try to turn the unit off completely, take the battery out, wait for few minutes and put them back and turn on to see anything better. This action helps to clear the memory of your unit.
If after you doing that problem still, i think you need the hard reset your Palm Treo. To do the hard reset, you need to back up all your data to the computer first, syns all contacts and files to your comp and perform the hard reset.( How to do hard reset could find in your manual)
In my experience, the palm treo is very sensitive handheld, the keys and touch screen easy to create the problem for you when you put your phone in the pocket with car keys or something. Try to avoid this.
Hope this will help.

I cant turn on my blackberry pearl 8110. Red light just flashes

A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
Still if it is not working kindly remove the Battery of the Handheld and try in some other Handheld.
If the Battery is working fine in the other Handheld then there might be some problem with your Handheld, you need to walk into the service center.
If the Battery is not working in the other Handheld then there might be aproblem in the USB cable for these you need to walk into the service center

This means the revolver (holds the 3 color toners/developer units) never returned/moved to its "home" position.
It could mean a bad or dirty home position sensor or a faulty/bad logic board or possibly a bad motor (not rotating the revolver correctly) try cleaning or replacing this sensor first.
if you remove the covers from the left side of the copier you will see the revolver unit. the sensor is located at the rear of the revolver unit mounted on the frame of the copier.(easy to see) there is one screw holding it and a small wire connector.
These copiers are "famous" for having dirty sensor issues.
If the revolver/machine makes an odd noise when starting up, caused by the revolver then its starting to turn (run the copier with the side cover open so you can watch it) then it would point more to being a drive problem.

Memory loss

the problem is based on a failure of the backup accu. This can only be fixed by a Toshiba Repair Service. They have to change a Board inside the PDA.
