Palm m505 Won't Start Up

I have a Palm m505 but nothing happens. I mean, when I charge it, the green light turn on, and when I disconnect it, the green light stays on for ages...it just gets dimmer and dimmer and stays on for days sometimes...besides that, nothing else works, the screen won't show anything at all. All it is is a small thingy with a green light, and thats basicaly it. What do I have to do with it? Battery replacement, screen replacement....?

I have an M505 with the same problem. After taking off the back cover, I found a defective (short circuit) SOT23 device nearly centered just below the expansion card slot. The markings are A5RGC, but I have been unable to verify whether this may be a programmable UJT (BRY61), a transistor or a diode. Does anyone have a schematic diagram, or kno where to get one?

Have you tried a hard reset? assuming that you did, it sounds like you need to replace the device itself.

How would i know if my palm m500 is charging? while charging, do i need to turn on my computer???

Hi,

Yes, you will need to turn on your computer for it to charge. You will see a charging indicator on the screen.

Thanks

My Palm m505 will not synchronize with the pc. Everything is plugged in, the battery was new about 3 years ago and sitll keeps a charge. My last synchronization with the pc was Nov 20th. I hate to lose...

Not sure which software you're using but with mine there is a shortcut in the program menu to start HotSynch. I know that's a duh, but ya never know.
Second option is to reinstall the Desktop software. You may have a corrupted driver or cfg file.

I stopped using my m505 for several months. How long until it will be charged enough to turn on? Its been charging now for at least 2 hours and nothing.

I would charge it over night. If the batteries went completely dead sometimes it takes an extended period of time to charge them. If that doesn't work try using the free palm chat. I have enclosed that link. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see Palm chat. From there click on the link that says chat now.
Best wishes.

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger

Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.
