Insert batteries correctly

Most battery-equipped devices are designed so that all the batteries get inserted with their negative ends resting against the spring coil.

For some reason, Hewlett-Packard designed their palmtops so the positive end of one battery rests against the spring coil, while the negative end of the other battery rests against the other spring coil.

If you're not paying attention when you change batteries and you insert both batteries with the negative ends touching the springs, your palmtop won't work when you turn it on.

When you replace the main batteries, orient them according to the symbols in the battery compartment, not according to the position of the springs.
