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.

Best regards,

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.

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

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.

Regards,

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

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.
