Earlier this week, I was venturing past a pawn shop and decided to go in. In the display case I saw a Palm m125 laying there for $10 with a sticker saying "broken". So I purchased it and left the store. I got back to my office, put some batteries in and - to my amazement - it powered on. I'm having a small problem, however. Whenever I start it up, it flashes the "Palm Powered" logo and then it asks me if I want to erase all my files. I get two options (naturally) Yes & No. If I select either yes or no, it flashes the "Palm Powered" logo once again and then shuts off a second or two later. In order to get it to start again I have to hit the reset button on the back. It has a brand new set of Duracell's in it, so I'm doubtful it's the battery. Unfortunately, I don't have the hotsync cradle for this device. This is my first PDA (being a student on a strict budget) and I'd mainly use it for quick notes to myself (shopping lists) and playing games (to kill time on the train).
I realize that I picked this thing up knowing it was broken, but I just wanted to ask to see if anyone here on AF could possibly help me out.
As always, any and all help is much appreciated!
