No powered "docking station"
Tried "serial port" dock.
No "green light, no power on, no "hardware found."
Install CD stated "that it in fact was communicating with the unit."
Dissected "serial" dock. continuity showed failure points on "Power" (#2 4.5v)
and one other un-traced.) Attempting to re solder.
Continuing test. (Direct voltage 3.0v for test, then to 4.5v for 1 hour.)
Locations (facing back of unit, "connection strip) Left to right, power supply "Ground" to #10." "Positive from power supply 4.5 v, to #2"
*****NOTE******* On back of unit positions count L / R 10 to 0*******
NO POWER ON INDICATION
Voltage reading from the points of contact shows increase from 1.0v to 11.0v and possibly climbing.
I am going to return charging in this manner for a little longer. No voltage increases.
What's wrong with this unit ? And what is my next diagnostic step and repair>
Also, is there a schematic for the power system on the Palm Vx itself?
Thank you to all who offer help.
I will be standing by.
Initial placement of negative lead from power supply to unit was location #1 ( far right) for (Neg) and second in from the left ((position #10?)
Position 1, is orange when examined from inside. Negative (black) is in #2, or 2nd from the right.
Re initiated charge.
Waiting for one hour.
