In the preferences i tagged the 'stay on in cradle' but despite that it
turns of after the selected time.
I wish to share my recent experience with m505 owners out here.
I purchased my Palm m505 (Assembled in USA) on July 2001, which had been
working fine for me till a week ago when I noticed the SD slot doesn't
retain Palm 16MB SD Card. I called up Palm Technical Support of Singapore
the next day morning and they told me it was a hardware failure and they
were going to replace my defective unit with a new one. The same day (five
hours later), they arranged the courier service to pick up the Palm.
Four days later, I received the new unit via courier. It was 'Assembled in
Hungary' instead of 'Assembled in USA'. I thought it didn't matter initially
until I switched on the backlight and noticed a pinkish hue instead of the
white screen of my earlier unit. This has made differentiation between white
and pink colour difficult.
I wrote back to them explaining the situation and I got a reply stated that:
I wrote again to Palm Technical Support of USA and I got the following
I don't know whether I should laugh at this or not, but anyway, I proceeded
to perform a soft reset, the pinkish hue remains. I have a feeling that they
are beating around the bush or I have been taken for a ride.
The screen is also dimmer compared to the old unit. To top it all, there are
a few defective pixels that always show red colour instead of black colour.
Does anyone here know what should I do next? If you are replying to this
