T3 New Replacement Sources - Problems Beginning
My Tungsten T3 is now acting as if its battery is beginning to fail. The green charge-indicator light does not always come on when the PDA is in the charging/syncing cradle. The T3 also seems to reset itself each day, at roughly 2 to 3 p.m., effectively wiping its memory clean. It?s either the battery failing, or a problem with the charger. After a week, this is starting to prove pretty inconvenient.
Are forum members aware of a source for new T3 replacements? With my current ?universal connector? keyboards, chargers and cases ? would like to maintain my current model while the anticipated new models are introduced and reviewed.
I tried the Palm store at Reagan National Airport as well as Amazon, Froggle and other sources. These locations unfortunately are now out of stock. (Am also considering battery or cradle replacement, but appears a replacement T3 also may be prudent.) Thank you.
By the way, the Palm Store here in Washington, D.C., features a travel charger unit on sale with its box labeled ?for the Tungsten T5 and the Life Drive.?

My first thought is your charger is defect.
Try to use a USB sync cable, this charges as well (only a bit slower).
For replacement parts, see www.pdaparts.com. Even ebay has a lot T3-resources if you spend some time looking for it.
As for the battery replacement ... there are 2 threads incredibly active at the moment describing just that.
