When I plug my Palm into recharge it no longer charges. I thought it was the adapter so I bought a new one and get the same results. Nothing. What is the solution? I am in the UK right now and have 10 more days here and the battery is about out of juice. My sinc is at home in the US. I will lose all of my data on the PDA, correct?

Re: My Palm Zire 72 will no longer charge
At first, before to want to be sure where is the problem is, you must do these sample tests:
1) Take out your battery and plug your power cord into your phone without battery. If :
Power is on, there is definitely, your battery is bad and cannot hold a charge.
If nothing happens, your internal battery may be dead and cannot hold charge so all info in your ROM of course has been washed away except the pre-load software by Palm.
2) At this step, you need to open your Palm if you know how to do to check for any bad connection between cable and use your volmeter to check the voltage output of your inner battery or can be called reserved battery whether it is have any power. If your reserved one has correct output voltage as in specs then check all connection around your power supply part to see any crack or defect. Please reviews the link below for detail:

I can't get the back off my 72s to replace the battery, any instructions would be appreciated. One source says there is a third screw in the wire mesh but I only found the 2 lower ones. Also, I can't find the Media Icon anywhere, therefore I can't use the camera or download pics. I even reloaded the software to no avail.
The best thing to do is to go to the free palm chat service
they offer. I have used this and it worked good for me. Here is a link to the
free chat service. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a Palm
Chat. From there click on the link that says Chat Now and follow the online
prompts. Best wishes...I hope this will help you.
1. Press either the Date Book or Address Book button to see if you can turn on your handheld that way. 2. Perform 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. 3. Make sure the power adapter is plugged securely into a working electric outlet and is firmly connected to the handheld. (If no outlet is available, your handheld can also be charged through the USB cable, but this takes much longer.) Note: Your handheld does not have an indicator light to indicate that your handheld is being charged. 4. Charge for another three full hours. 5. If your handheld now turns on, check the charging-battery icon to ensure that your handheld is being charged. Example: a. Connect the handheld to an outlet and turn it on. b. Tap Home . c. Look for the lightning bolt on the battery icon at the top of the screen. d. If you do not see the lightning bolt, repeat steps 3 and 4.
Unfortunately this is a common problem, it can be repaired but unless you are an electronics technician I suggest you take it to the service provider if it's still under warranty. If not there will probably be a small fee. It may not be worth the cost to repair it so you may just want to replace the unit. Good luck
Unfortunately Palm battery has a life cycle which is about 500 recharge after that will not charge well and will be end of its life. However you can replace the battery. Which can be obtained easily a 3.7V 700mA and above will work fine just make sure size will match
Its most likely caused by battery's life cycle has come to end. You may obtain a 3.7V OEM battery with same size of your original battery at least 700mA. you may replace if you wish to DIY or ask local repair tech assistance.
