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

Every time I try to turn my zire 71 on, it acts like it is dead but it is fully chsrged. I always have to do a hard reset (pin in the hole) to get it to work. If I turn it off, I again have to use the reset button in order for it to work. Please help.

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

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,

The information on my Palm Zire 71 all appears to have been lost.

looks like it's completely gone, hope you kept backups.

was the data stored on the SD-Card, if so try putting the sd-card in a computer/card reader.

Zire 71 Camera

1) The camera is most likely broken- unless you are handy dont bother trying to use the camera

2) The booklet isn't all that useful but you can find a copy of it on Palm's website as a PDF file

3) It will turn off and a prompt will warn you of the low battery, but if you continue to turn it on it will "forget" everything in memory

I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy your Zire - it is a good PDA

Palm Zire 71 Display Problem

If you slide your Zire up as if you are using the camera, there is a reset hole in the back that you can poke a needle or pin into to have it do a "reboot" which will not lose data.

Not sure why the display changed.

PDA is totally black; not charging

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.
