    periodically my Palm Pixi Plus shows "bajw" instead of "Palm", at boot. When theis happens everything is all screwed up. If I remove the battery for a while, it will boot normal and all is fine. Anyone else ever had the same problem or have any idea what the h is going on?

    TIA

    "bajw"? Perhaps this was the next model in the pixi family?

    Actually, this is pretty weird...because the image of "Palm" during bootup is just that, an image. It isn't text that could get garbled somehow....As I recall, there are 2 images stored on your device, and I forget what they are called, but on a stock Palm webOS device, both say "Palm" but one is regular text and the other one is glowing text, a good bit brighter. Then, during bootup, at some point the two images are phased in and out, giving the appearance that the word "Palm" is pulsating/glowing on and off. This is to entertain you while you wait...and wait. And let me tell you, as someone who has the longest boot up time of anyone I know (it takes 6 minutes and 25 seconds or more for a cold boot for my Pre+...I'm not kidding), it isn't very entertaining. I was thinking about suggesting HP replace this boring boot up with a game of pong...THAT would be entertaining! Maybe I did suggest this...and that was about the time HP cut the cord on new webOS devices...OH NO! IT'S ALL MY FAULT!

    Of course, it could be a form of hypnosis too..."you are happy, the world is pretty good, take the blue pill...NO WAIT! I MEANT THE RED ONE! Oh boy...uh, AGENT SMITH? Don't be angry, but..."

    Happened to one of ours some time ago. Then the Pixi died. Replaced it with Siri...

    As soon as Rockbeast noted that it was an image, I thought, "hmmmm..."

    Of course, it would be more poetically fitting if "HP" was bass ackwards!

    Which would give us "d(u)h". Appropriate, that. :P

    yes, only not in color. when it does, and the phone finally finishes booting, everything on the display is back asswards, I figured I can't be the only one and based on the replies, apparently has happened to at least one other. would be nice to know what has happened.

    I've done very little to the phone,

    Just be sure to be near a mirror so you can use your phone...unless you are a vampire, then don't be near Abraham Lincoln.
