How do I make a hard reset on my Palm Zire 31 PDA?

Hi!

I'm giving away my Palm Zire 31 because I just received an iPaq rx1950. Though, I love using palm devices more but, it definitely is a better upgrade. Yes, it's hard to let go, but I also want to be a blessing to others. So, how do I remove all Calendar and contacts data in one easy method? Thanks alot!
God bless...

There is a reset pin hole on the back of the unit; Hold the power button and push the reset button in the hole with a paperclip. All memory should now be erased.

    There are also soft and medium resets, although I'm not sure what medium does, it may solve terman's problem. A soft is just pressing the reset pin. If you hold the up arrow as well, it will medium reset.

Lost contacts on my Palm Zire 31


No, only if you synchronized with another device beforehand. Using Palm Desktop, eg, you could synchronize and get the list back.

I would like to give my Zire 31 to a friend but need to erase all my information from it. How do I do this?


Do a HARD RESET on your PALM ZIRE 31.
A hard reset will erase everything on your device. All your data will be removed, and formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings.

  1. Press and hold the Power (on/off) button on the front panel of your device.
  2. While holding Power, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus. Gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device (where's the reset hole?).
  3. If you see a progress bar (see below), keep holding the Power button.
  4. Next, the Palm Powered screen will appear. Release the Power button when you see it.
  5. You'll see a screen that asks: Erase all data? YES = "up" button NO = any other button. Press UP on your 5-way navigator to complete the hard reset.

How do I make a hard reset on my Palm Zire 31 PDA?


I did not write the posting attributed to me. I have a Palm Tungsten E. My Dad had been using it and I needed to know how to do a hard reset so it would accept my info. I found that on the Palm site after looking on your site. I performed the hard reset and hot synced the Palm with my info.

Thank you, Sue Nutt

How do I activate my handheld for a specific user account?


Definitely something to address with Audible Digital Rights Management of Audible files is controlled and managed by Audible. In general the way these schemes work is to write some kind of key or token file to your handheld when you first setup your Audble account. Unless the keyfile is present, the player will give you the response you mentioned. With Audible, you can move the authorization from one device to another by deactivating one device and activating another. In your case, you seem to have deactivated your Zire 31 somehow. I suspect that you may have put a new user on the Zire 31 and therefore the DRM keyfile is no longer part of your files on the Zire. It would be associated with the old username and no longer on your handheld. I suspect what you have to do is re-authorize your Zire 31 using the Audible Manager on the PC.
