This guide will take you step by step through the process of replacing the battery in the Palm Tungsten T3.

  1. Unscrew the two Phillips #00 screws on either side of the device, on the sliding handwriting panel.
    • Unscrew the two Phillips #00 screws on either side of the device, on the sliding handwriting panel.

  2. Slide out the handwriting panel.
    • Slide out the handwriting panel.

    • Insert a paper clip into the two marked small holes on the back and push downwards while pulling the handwriting panel gently.

    • You should see the buttons connector, like the third picture.

    • Gently remove the handwriting panel from the device.

    • Be careful - it's still connected by the button cable. Peel the cable from the device carefully with a spudger - it is attached with a little bit of adhesive.

    • Carefully remove the connector and set the handwriting panel aside.

    • Remove the two Phillips #00 screws on the back of the device.

    • Unscrew the two small Phillips #00 screws at the other end of the device.

    • A small metal part will fall out of the device from the other side. Keep hold of this - you won't be able to put these screws back in without it.

    • Using a spudger, gently separate the back casing from the rest of the device.

    • Be careful - the back casing contains the battery, which is connected by a very thin battery cable.

    • Lay the two halves side by side.

    • The battery is usually held to the case by a small amount of adhesive. Carefully peel it up with a spudger.

    • Lay the back case aside.

    • You should now be left with the front panel and the battery.

    • Gently disconnect the battery connector. It's very small and the pins are very delicate, so be careful not to bend it.

    • When you install the new battery, you may find it useful to secure it to the back casing with some blu-tack, double-sided tape or even a small amount of glue.

    • When reassembling your device, remember to place the small metal part on the front of the device and hold it while you insert the two small screws.

    • The screws won't stay in unless they're screwed into this metal part.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

The only thing I would add is before replacing the battery, be sure to backup your device since disconnecting the battery will do a total reset.
