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?

Re: Toshiba 740E handheld PC problems with hard reset &...

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.

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

Fatal alert


This is a common problem with the Tungsten line, You can try doing a hard reset. This worked for my E2. If that doesn't work, the battery must be removed for a few hours. Although it still may not work after the battery removal.

** To preform a hard reset, hold down the power button, and push the reset button on the back of the unit. The top of your stylus unscrews to expose a "plastic pin" for this purpose. Keep holding down the reset button while the unit reboots. You should see a palm screen displayed while it restarts, let go of the power button and follow the instructions. Pressing up on the pad ring should erase all data.

Palm T3 frozen, tried restart in hole, nothing?


Doing a soft reset A soft reset tells your handheld to stop what it's doing and start over again. None of your information will be lost. After a soft reset, a screen appears that lets you reset the date and time, if needed. To do 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.

If a soft reset does not unfreeze your handheld, you need to do a hard reset. Doing a hard reset Only do a hard reset if a soft reset doesn't solve your problem, or if you want to clear all of your information from your handheld. [!] IMPORTANT A hard reset deletes all records and entries stored on your handheld, including the username that identifies the handheld. Before you do a hard reset, be sure to synchronize.

Palm Tungsten t5 WiFi


I suspect that you're in fact holding a Palm TX and not a T5 as the T5 does not have WiFi. If you're using the Palm SD WiFi adaptor, do a hard reset without the card.

(hold down the ON/OFF button whilst using the reset pin to press the reset button. You'll be asked if you are sure you wish to reset. You'll then be prompted to choose the language caliberate the screen etc..)

After that. Go and download all the updates and drivers from Palm Web site.

Hard reset


Note: It may be necessary to depress the power button more than once to properly initialize the power management circuitry before the unit comes on. Note: It may be necessary to connect AC power to the unit and allow it to charge before attempting to apply power. The unit will not power up if the battery voltage is below a safe operating level. Please refer to the leaflet "NEC MobilePro 900, Performing a Hard Reset" that was shipped with the unit for the procedure to perform a hard reset on your MobilePro 900.

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.
