Question about Palm Zire 72 Handheld
Last year my Palm was briefly submerged in water (I know). I could see water under the screen and a faint indicator light but that was it. Then it died completely. Recently I replaced the battery. The screen came back on and the camera worked although it was grainy. The sound didn't work. After a few minutes the battery wore down even though the charger was plugged in. The Palm wouldn't "read" the charger. I took out and put the battery back in several times to see if the reset screen would still appear; it did. Yesterday I tested the battery again and the screen won't come on like before. Not a good sign... Should I get a new motherboard (and battery) or will I still have the problem with the charger? Or should I give up altogether (duh, water!)? I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
I think the cost of a mobo and battery would end up costing more than a brand new pda.
If you are handy with a soldering iron, check the solder points for the battery and the ac port....don't know if they could have rusted or even lifted because of the water damage.
Aside from that, I wouldn't know what to check. I think it's amazing your pda works at all.
Also, there is a guy by the name of Chris Short...just google him. He does a lot of Palm repairs for reasonable prices, and he has good customer service.
