Zire 71 screen does not sense stylus input -- even after performing a reset.

Try doing a hard reset. This will erase everything on your zire and restore it to brand new settings. To do a hard reset make sure you have everything backup on your palm desktop. Here are the steps for the hard reset:

1. Hold down the power button and then depress the small hole in the back with the tip of your stylus2.gif.

2. Continue to hold them both in until you see the Palm2.gif logo.

3. Let go of both of them and then follow the onscreen directions. You will want to answer yes and use the 5 way navigation button on the bottom of your pda and hit up so that is completes the reset. After that you will have to set up your touch screen and go through the tapping the target. After you have gone through all this then do a hotsync. It should clear up your problem. Best wishes.

I need to replace my battery in my zire 71 but cant find how to open it up.

Hello there,

If your palm zire 71 is still under warranty, I would suggest to bring it to the authorized service center for assistance as opening your Palm may revoke the warranty. But if it is already out of warranty, below is the link that could guide you and which includes illustration on how to do it correctly.

Hope this helps. Goodluck!

Forgot password to hot sync palm zire 71

You can create a new profile and set your options again. It's more work but it will solve the problem.

Side note: I use a great program called eWallet from iliumsoft that supports Palm, iPhone, Windows Mobile, and more to store passwords in. Works great.

Hello LyMaBa

Do you have an SD card inserted in the PDA?

If so remove it and restart your PDA.

Did the problem go away. If so, please, go HERE for the Zire 71 Expansion update or HERE for the SD/SDIO update.

You can find all the manuals for the Palm Zire 71 PDA HERE.

If you don't have a SD card inserted, you might want to try performing a WARM RESET of your PDA. Youtube has a video on this process HERE.

You can find instructions HERE for performing a reset ("warm" or "hard") on your Palm PDA.

You can find other software, info, downloads, etc.
HERE for your Zire 71.

If performing a "warm" reset doesn't work, try performing a "hard" reset.

*** WARNING!!! ***
YOU WILL loose ALL of your data on the PDA by performing a "hard" reset so make sure it's data has been synchronized w/ your computer software (Palm Desktop, Microsoft Outlook, etc).

* If the information I provided you w/

* an answer to your question, then, a
* "FixYa" rating would be most
* appreciated. @:)
* (You can assign the same rating to

* It is best to wait until the problem
* has been resolved b4 rating the experts'

* the problem will be closed and we will

* Very often it will take more than one
* exchange of information between you
* and an expert in order to resolve your
* problem. If a proposed solution doesn't
* work for you, don't rate it yet. Instead,
* post back here letting us know and we'll
* continue to work w/ you until we find a
* solution that does work for you.
* Thank you
