20 Most Recent Palm m515 Handheld Questions & Answers


The power button on my Palm M515 is flashing on


From Palm Support:

If your M515 has been uncharged for several days, this is a normal behavior. If the device has been dormant for several days and totally drained, once you re-charge it will prompt you do a hard reset.
Oftentimes, it will directly direct you calibrate the screen and once you're done you will notice that your data is gone.

However, if it's not the case then your device could be having a hardware problem that only repair can fix.

Note that if you have backed up your M515 to your PC and you do a hard reset, you can restore your data.

But, if you have backed up your data and the same problem occurs after restore, you most likely have a hardware problem, usually not cost-effective to repair.

Hope this helps.

If I perform hotsync when


The HotSync process automatically synchronizes - that is, exchanges and updates - data between your handheld and Palm Desktop software. Changes you make on your handheld or Palm Desktop software appear in both places after a HotSync operation. HotSync technology synchronizes only the needed portions of files, thus reducing synchronization time.

So, hotsync will update the laptop/desktop from the handheld.

  5. The serial number is the first 12 characters of the ID: line.

Palm M515 and compatibility with Vista Home Premium

I was having a similar problem with my M515.  I had originally installed the Palm Desktop from my CD, which was an older version.  When I totally uninstalled the old version and installed the newer version from the Palm website I was able to do a successful sync.  I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate and Palm Desktop version 4.1.4

The device is not working. No matter whatever I do

Do you see any power light indicator blinking? Did you install something, before the problem starts?

If the PDA is completely powerless, you may want to start with the battery. It would be best to bring the PDA to the dealer and see if they have a spare battery that you may use for testing.

The problem could be a power issue, but most likely, it's a software related problem.

If you're able to test it with different battery, but you get the same problem, then contact the manufacturer and have them upgrade the firmware of your PDA. And that should fix the problem.

Thank you and good luck!

Palm pilot will not stay powered up.

Sounds like it is time for a new battery. Not expensive.
Google for palm 515 battery and you should find a few places. Worth doing if you can do yourself or if you really like your 515 ;-] Labor cost on top of the battery might be the deciding factor.
