I can see from the description that this post is really old (October), however, I'd like to help you, hoping you have not thrown away your Palm yet. I'll simply repost what I posted to another Palm user who was having the same problem, with ironically the same model, to save time:

"If the Palm has been dormant for too long, you may need to try and cycle the battery into a working state once again.

Try doing a hard reset, and holding everything down for 30 seconds. Unless the Palm responds, leave it alone, and let it sit charging for the next 12-16 hours. Unplug the device and try to hard reset again. If after this process, the Palm does not work, try re-plugging in the charger to the Palm, and try the process again. I have personally used this process to fix Palms that refused to turn on or respond in the past.

However, if the battery dropped to zero and stayed stagnant too long, or if this process completely fails altogether, you will need to have the Palm serviced, or you can order a battery online, disassemble your Palm carefully, and solder the new battery wires to the new battery."
