    How do I do a hard reset? My zire 71 battery is totally DEAD and it is not responding at all to the charger. I don't have the instruction book anymore, so when you say "do a hard reset" I have no idea what you mean. Please help! And thanks!

  • WordLord May 12, 2008

    I have EXACTLY the same problem with my brand new LG Viewty. The battery ran down overnight and I plugged in the charger to give the battery its first charge, but there is absolutely no response. Phone is completely dead. I have tried it with other chargers and the USB but nothing.

Hi,
A hard reset WILL ERASE ALL INFORMATION so make sure you back up everything before performing a hard reset.

To perform a hard reset hold down the power button and at the same time without releasing the power button push and release the reset button on the back of your device. Keep holding the power button until the SECOND palm logo screen comes on. When you see the second palm logo screen release the power button. It should ask you if you want to erase all data push the up button to erase all data. Your device will restart several times. Then to put your information back on your device just perform a hotsync.

Hope this helped :)

The easiest solutions are easily overlooked. 1. Check your charger; a cheap multimeter will do for the voltage check. If the voltage (dc) written on the back of the charger is what you get at the plug, go to (2),if not, change your charger,problem solved. 2.You either have a messed up screen or battery. 3. Check the voltage at your battery terminals after charging the battery for like 1hr. If you do not get a resonable read; 2-5v ,just trash the battery and head for the nearest shop to get a fresh one.In case your battery reads okay,your screen or worse, one of the components on the board of the set has gone kaput.

Did you try hard resetting the device? If it doesnt work, leave the PDA with the battery out for maybe an hour and try again

You aren't going to find that information anywhere. My advice is to either return it to Palm, or buy a spare one. There is one for $4 that needs a charger.

Palm Zire 71 handheld does not come on, did a hard reset, nothing


Confirm that both the cradle and the PDA ports are clean and free of dust or dirty.

Also, check your AC wall adapter to confirm that is working. The output should be +5.0 volts DC. Any repair shop has a multimeter need it to check it in no time.

If everything appears is OK, then confirm the PDA is properly placed in the cradle, and that the PDA is not loose on the cradle, indicating that the port contacts are not touching.

Best regards,

Palm Zire 71 works when it is on the sync but not off


You are right
there is a component on the main board of your PDA
that is most likely fried
power from the PC chord will go to the PDA
but when you unplug it the machine will look to the battery for power
and the electricity will convert to heat at the point of that fried component
on the more thin Palm models you can feel it without taking the case off

and it will "forget" any new information you input due to the type of memory it uses

Palm zire 71 replaced battery camera and charging port not wrking


Dis you see if either the brown plastic locking part of the connector is broken or missing?

Do you know if the soldering joints and terminals of such connector are in good shape?

I am asking because it may be only that the flat ribbon cable is nort placed properly, or such flat ribbon cable is damaged.

Also, the connector at the mainboard can be damaged.

Depending of what is damaged, it will be the cost to repair it.

I do recoomend you to disassembly very carefully your pda again, and check such areas and parts.

If you find something that is broken, you can get the needed parts from a broken PDA in Ebay or similar sites.

Zire72's on the fritz!


Plug the ac wall adapter to charge the PDA and leave it there.

When the PDA exhausted the battery charge, it needs minimum 30 minutes to charge to the minimum level to have the PDA powering on.

Once it powers on, leave it charging the battery until is fully charged (3-4 hours).

The top plastic digitizer is defective.

It needs to be replaced.

There are several sources on-line to buy such digitizer part.

Goofy thing going on


Try resetting the digitizer on the Setup programs, it works for me, but needs resetting every so often. a lot easier (and cheaper) than buying a new screen for such an old machine.

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).
