A quick "search" on JVM 523 found several threads with the same question.

You need to reload the handheld Operating System.

Use javaloader and do a wipe function first (Search for a thread on javaloader and it will direct you to download it and how to do a wipe) Then reload the OS, and if you had a backup restore it afterwards.

If you need the Desktop Manager and the HandHeld OS here is the link to download the Desktop Manager and the OS Version, just pick it from the drop down menu.

Hope that helps some what. My old 6510 did that to me once, I reloaded the OS through the Desktop Manager and restored from a backup, and away I went.
