20 Most Recent Handspring Visor Deluxe Handheld Questions & Answers


Problem is fixed: Not sure how I fixed but I think it was when I shutdown PC and restarted. Then I tried to SYNC again AND then I found WINDOWS saying it found new hardware (the cradle). This time I knew to say I'd tell where the drivers were and I chose the Drivers directory of Handspring directory and the installation proceeded OK this time. (drivers are PALMUSBD.inf and PALMUSBD.sys) I can then SYNC with Outlook 2003

I have this same problem. I thought it was the cradle so I bought a new cradle but when I place the PDA in the cradle the charging light does not go on. I can force it to light up by moving the PDA around but will not recharge even when held in place

Tip

Visor Deluxe does not start


Hi.

The procedure below shows how to reset the PDA to factory settings after backing up all your personal data.
After backing up your data with HotSync, perform a hard reset, this will erase all applications and returns your device to its factory default settings.

To perform a hard reset:
1. Hold down the power button on the front panel of the PDA.
2. While holding down the power button, use a paper clip to press the reset button.
3. Release the power button.
4. You will get a message warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on the PDA, do the following:
Press the top scroll button on the front panel
to complete the hard reset and display the startup screen.
If you press any other button you will do a soft reset, that will not fix the problem. In that case restart the procedure.
5. After doing hard reset the unit will return to the initial factory state. All third party installed applications will be deleted, and setting will be reported to factor default.

Connect to HotSync and do a backup of the PDA, then do hard reset on Palm.

If the PDA is not detected by Hotsync, then there is an additional problem.

To troubleshoot problems given by third party application you do a backup, then rename the backup folder containing third party application data to Backup.old, and do hard reset.

After that you start restoring applications from backup.old one at the time, when one application jams the Palm, that is the responsible for the error message.

Procedure is described here.

Regards.

Hello.

I'd suggest to perform a soft reset (press the reset button in back of the device with a paper clip).

Hope this helps.

Do a hard reset on your pda, that will get rid of the syncing problem, hard reset instructions :

to perform a hard reset:
1.Hold down the power button on the front panel of the handheld.
2.While holding down the power button, use an unfolded paper clip
(or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the reset
button.
3.Release the power button.
4.When a message appears on the handheld screen warning that you
are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld, do one of
the following:
Press the top scroll button on the front panel of your handheld
to complete the hard reset and display the Digitizer screen.
Press any other button to perform a soft reset.
Note: With a hard reset, the current date and time are retained.
Formats Preferences and other settings are restored to their
factory default settings.


If you have important data on the pda and you do not back up it regularly you should purchase a back up program or learn to use the hot sync to back up your content so that you do not loose your files in the future.

First thought is that the cable has become defective - they do go wrong.

Assuming the visor is fine other than when hotsyncing, I suggest you reinstall the Desktop manager and hotsync manager on your PC or Mac, HAVING BACKED UP ALL FILES of course.

Sometimes the managers get corrupted and cause problems. Try that first, then check cable and finally a hard reset, assuming you have hotsynced recently and so won't lose loads of information.

I believe the CD only gives you the two programs that you need for your PC or Mac. Desktop Manager and Hotsync manager, both of which should be available for download from the Palm website. Find the Visor Deluxe among the devices on the site and you will find the files there.

Everything else is permanently on your Visor but you need those two programs on your computer to hotsync and so transfer files between the visor and your computer. If you haven't got a cradle or cable you can still buy them third party.

Your application is for an upgraded version of the Palm OS. Say you had a Palm OS version 2 or something. If you download an application for Palm OS 5, obviously it won't work because the application is for a later version. Make sense? To remedy this, you will have to delete the application and get one with a version that matches or is lower than your Palm's.

I measured the battery current on my Visor. It was over 50ma on as well as off. I backed it up to the desktop, put in fresh batteries and gave it a hard reset. The battery current became 13ma when on and 600ua when off. I was able to repeat the high drain / low drain cycle. My guess is that doing a reset with less than full battery power hangs the unit in the high drain state.

Fixed - Hotsync all your stuff to your desktop. Remove any cards, and do a cold boot (press reset while holding down power button)

Then synch everything back again. I'm never buying another palm again.

Handspring Visor... | Answered on Sep 08, 2008


make sure that you have the Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager 4.1.4E it includes Palm Outlook Conduits. The "E" stands for Extended, meaning that this version of Palm Desktop is intended for devices that have the extended PIM applications.

afterward, use the program PocketMirror to sync your outlook and the handspring device.

Assume that your Visor is your data respository. So you should make sure that you have an up-to-date synchronization from the NT PC. Now get the XP compatible software for your Visor from the palmOne website and install it on the XP box. I assume that you will be synching via USB this time - this is the default setup when you install the software. Hopefully you still have the USB cradle that came with the Visor. You can still use serial sync with XP but you should try to take advantage of the speed of USB on the new PC. Download for XP & Visors: http://www.palmone.com/us/support/downloads/visor/win_desktop_401.html Once the software is installed, sync with the new computer and all your data should be copied from the Visor to your PC in the first synchronization. By the way, Outlook shouild be installed on the new computer before you install the Visor software; otherwise the installer will not offfer to install the PocketMirror conduits.
