My Palm Zire 72 will no longer charge

When I plug my Palm into recharge it no longer charges. I thought it was the adapter so I bought a new one and get the same results. Nothing. What is the solution? I am in the UK right now and have 10 more days here and the battery is about out of juice. My sinc is at home in the US. I will lose all of my data on the PDA, correct?

Re: My Palm Zire 72 will no longer charge

At first, before to want to be sure where is the problem is, you must do these sample tests: 1) Take out your battery and plug your power cord into your phone without battery. If : Power is on, there is definitely, your battery is bad and cannot hold a charge. If nothing happens, your internal battery may be dead and cannot hold charge so all info in your ROM of course has been washed away except the pre-load software by Palm. 2) At this step, you need to open your Palm if you know how to do to check for any bad connection between cable and use your volmeter to check the voltage output of your inner battery or can be called reserved battery whether it is have any power. If your reserved one has correct output voltage as in specs then check all connection around your power supply part to see any crack or defect. Please reviews the link below for detail: I hope these info will give you some hints.

Palm zire 72 will not syn with pc running win 8.1

You find a fix to that problem, and the (Palm) world will beat a path to your door. HP, Palm's new owner, has attempted a fix for Win7, but Win8/8.1 may become the impossible hurdle.

Good luck!

My PalmOne Zire 72S battery won't charge. How do I

I can't get the back off my 72s to replace the battery, any instructions would be appreciated. One source says there is a third screw in the wire mesh but I only found the 2 lower ones. Also, I can't find the Media Icon anywhere, therefore I can't use the camera or download pics. I even reloaded the software to no avail.

Pin in charge hole got loose then disappeared

Unfortunately this is a common problem, it can be repaired but unless you are an electronics technician I suggest you take it to the service provider if it's still under warranty. If not there will probably be a small fee. It may not be worth the cost to repair it so you may just want to replace the unit. Good luck

No power and i cannot charge my palmone zire 72

Unfortunately Palm battery has a life cycle which is about 500 recharge after that will not charge well and will be end of its life. However you can replace the battery. Which can be obtained easily a 3.7V 700mA and above will work fine just make sure size will match

My PalmOne Zire 72 no longer re-charges. I think it might be the connection on the hand held unit itself. Does anybody here know where can I send it to have the repair done?

Its most likely caused by battery's life cycle has come to end. You may obtain a 3.7V OEM battery with same size of your original battery at least 700mA. you may replace if you wish to DIY or ask local repair tech assistance.

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).

Best regards,
