Question about Palm Zire 71 Handheld
Quite often, the palm becomes insensitive to the stylus. Problem may disappear after a few minutes. How to solve problem immediately?
Try firmly squeezing the screen with your finger tip - running parallel lines from one side of the screen to the other then perpendicularly. It seems to have an effect on redistributing the liquid crystal evenly beneath the screen. The digitizer on my Palm TX seems to have been revitalized with this method. It may appear to others that you are invoking the genie from the magic lamp. Add a few recitations of "abra cadabra" to gain the full effect.
I can't take credit for arriving at this fix.

Have you run the digitizer app, which is located in Preferences, and recalibrates the digitizer? If it is not the digitizer problem , it may be the stylus you are using.. read this: http://discussion.brighthand.com/palmhandhelds/showthread.php?s=2291eadf13e4feda45b1303d5ba7089e&threadid=3182 By the way, about Palm's "repair service", take a look below: "... I can sympathize with you. Six months after I bought a Palm Zire 71 I had exactly the same problem, it would not respond to the stylus. I sent it in for repair (fortunately I got someone in India who spoke fairly good English). They set it back after a week or so and a month later I had exactly the same problem again. (They did return my original unit.) Again I had to send it in and they sent me a replacement that works so far. I had a previous experience with Palm's "repair service" where they again did a repair that only lasted a few weeks. ..."
