Having problems with your Palm m500, m505 & m515 Install CD (pa1456) ?

PALM M500 will not charge (Green LED does not light)

\015 I use a PALM m500 every day and it has proved excellent for years.\015\012\015\012As a contigency, I also bought a used PALM M500 a year ago and when I tested it, it worked 100% OK. But now I come to use this second PALM, it will not charge, the green LED will not light up and it is generally dead. \015\012\015\012I know the charging cradle works OK,.\015\012\015\012I doubt that the fault is a dud battery (even if one of the cells inside is dead) beacuse surely the green LED would light up when charging.\015\012\015\012I fear that the fault is a "motherbaord" fault which makes me think about switching to a horribly-power-hungry alternative to the M500 ? Help !\015
