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

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.
Press and hold the Power (on/off) button on the front panel of your device.
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?).
If you see a progress bar (see below), keep holding the Power button.
Next, the Palm Powered screen will appear. Release the Power button when you see it.
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.
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.
Have you tried a reset? You might have to open up the case (carefuly, i broke the cables by accident on mine doing that)and wiggle the cables around, As they could have shaken lose over time. if all that fails, you might have to do a hard reset or re-instal the software.
I have the same problem, after I did the hard reset and installed no programs, this power problem disappeared. But once i installed any programs, PDA battery life became no longer than 2 days, which is strange.
01) Press and hold down the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
02) While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the "Reset" button/hole on the back of the iPAQ until the screen goes blank.
03) Release the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
04) Press the "Reset" button/hole again (so that it resets/powers on.)
First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.
