How to restart a Palm Pilot that won’t turn on
Sometimes the Palm Pilot won’t turn on. It may look dead, but in most cases it is not. There are a few simple tricks to revive your Palm Pilot so you can continue using it.
The first is to do the needle trick. Palm Pilots are designed with a reset button on the device. They make it difficult to hit on accident, so you’ll need a pin or pin to push the button. On some models, you can unscrew the stylus, which will have a thin plastic device that will fit into the slot. Press the button hard for a few seconds and the device will turn back on, assuming there is a charge in the battery. Sometimes the device resets while other times it doesn’t. Sometimes there is data loss because the Palm Pilot crashed which was the cause of the problem.
Sometimes you’re just running on dead battery. Let it charge for at least half a day and try turning it on again. Sometimes the battery itself gets too hot or too cold and will not function properly. After staying indoors at normal temperature for a few days, revive these devices.
Many times, because Palm Pilots are quite old technology, the batteries are completely dead, just as eventually happens in devices like your laptop. You will need to replace the battery to get your Palm Pilot working again. You can find used batteries cheaply on sites like eBay. Just make sure it will work with your model before you buy.
Simply unscrew its back and lift the outer shell. The battery is easily accessible right there. You can disconnect the battery from the device and replace the new one quite easily. After recharging, the device will be back to working condition. Unfortunately, this will result in the loss of all your data.
