Zire 71 collected moisture

The device functions fine, but the screen is multi-color with a surreal twist. Readadble and functioning fine with every command. Is the issue the LCD or the digitializer? Which needs replaced? I love my 71 and really really want to keep it! HELP.

The digitizer function reads from the input of the LCD touch screen, so I would say LCD.

Zire won't come on

You need to follow the procedure to calibrate the digitizer.

If the screen does not respond to the stylus, then the digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

Zire 71 screen

Two possible scenarios:

1. Loose LCD screen connector inside the pda. You will need to open it and put it right.

It requires some level of skills to open it, repair it, close it properly.

If not precautions are taken, there are two major risks:

a) Break the flat ribbon cable of the universal PalmOne port (used to synchronize it and charge it).

b) Break a tiny switch that detects when is slided the top side so the camera application turns on.

2. LCD screen is damaged. It needs replacement.

You can get in touch with local repair services for it, and request a quote for its diagnostics and repair.

If after get some quotes, you think that they are excessive, you can contact the Ebay seller Great_items_2004 to receive a lower quote for it.

Zire 71 digitizer

I have the same problem and discovered that the right side of the screen had "spread". When I draw a line from the left to the right using Note Pad, the line ends up about 1/4 inch above the stylus. What I had to do is touch the stylus about 1/8th of an inch above the center of the digitizer target on the right side.

Zire 71 won't turn on, battery full after reset.

You can try to leave it for a few hours then charge it again. Or you can replace the batteries. I also have the same problem but after the reset, everything worked fine
