Question about Palm Z22 Handheld

1 Answer

Palm sync doesn't work even though it says sync complete.

I have a 3 year old Palm Z22 that has been dropped on its head one too many times by my children. It was having some severe problems so I bought another Palm Z22 for Christmas. I was able to beam all of my contact information from the old one to the new one but when I tried to sink the new one to the computer program, nothing shows up on the computer. It says sync complete and the data log says nothing about any problems (I wouldn't know if it was having problems and what the code meant anyway). I put a couple of things on the palm computer calender and then tried to sync them to my new Z22, but again, nothing shows up on the Palm. Do you have any suggestions of what I am doing wrong? Help me please?Mino

Palm z22 touch screen not responding touchscreen


The Z22 palm PDA is subjected to 3 points of failure. I got a used Z22 and discovered all 3 over the course of a few years. The touchscreen digitizer on the front is a plastic sheet on the top, and a glass screen on the bottom. Invisible layers of conductive paint are facing each other. Simply carrying the Z22 in your pocket, purse, briefcase, or even storing it in a drawer with pencils, staplers, rulers, etc., will, over time, deform the screen, and the damage is cumulative, so that the screen gets worse and worse. It is imperative to have a solid sheet of plastic or hard material over the screen at all times that you are not using it. Leaving the Z22 in direct hot sunlight will heat up and soften the screen, making the problem worse. Carrying the Z22 screen in your pocket on a hot day when you are sweating, will do the same. People report that the Z22 will work in a cool place like North New York, but the screen will quit, when they travel to Florida (hot). I have temporarily fixed the touchscreen by putting it in a ziplock, and sticking it in the freezer to shrink the top layer of plastic. That only worked twice. Then I use a hair dryer to heat the screen VERY hot, to shrink the screen - which worked very well, until I put it in a soft zippered camera case, which gently pushed the screen. Then I took the screen apart completely ( which no one has ever reported doing) and this worked amazingly well, -again- until I put it in a soft case that pushed the screen against the glass backing. I eventually replaced the touchscreen ($10 free shipping from China). All the information is on my tiny website at

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

The Z22 is incredibly well designed, and after ripping it apart a dozen times, and carrying it around under extreme heat and freezing cold, I would have to give the original design team at PALM, 5 stars. Your data, on the device, even though the screen may be dead, is very safe, and unless you do a HARD RESET, the data is stored on permanent memory. I had problems with a weak and dying battery, which ALL Z22s are now experiencing, since the decades of time, even with a "new" in the box, sealed Z22 will have. Low glitches of power on the battery seem to cause the BlackScreen of Death, where the LOGIC circuits that control the ON/OFF/SLEEP etc. functions get out of sync, and the unit will not charge or turn on until ALL power is removed ( typically, after a few weeks the battery drains to dead ).

All these problems are discussed and solutions posted, with photos on my website. Also are discussions on what to do with the Z22, where to get parts, how to maintain the Z22, and how to get data off the device onto the new 64 bit WINDOWS computers...

Good luck. The Z22 was an amazing device in its day, and people report that there were a few software programs for it that have never been made since - hence, they still use it...

My computer went down and I lost my calender info that was on Palm. I have a Palm Z22 which still has my calender. Can I sync the handheld with the computer only?


Hello cskennedy:

Many people are asking the same question, as well as how to deal with touchscreen and battery problems etc.

I have really explored all the aspects keeping a Z22 up and running, and have a complete web page devoted to this.

I am repeating a previous answer below:

The support page for the Z22 has moved around over the last couple of years. HP (Hewlett Packard) bought PALM and still has a fairly good coverage of what WAS available. Beware that Windows has gone to 64 BITS with Windows 7, Windows 8 etc, so that older software does NOT immediately work.
There are many features of the Z22 such as NEWS and GAME web portals that are shut down, so that peripheral connectivity is at a minimum.
HP has the last known working, native, connection software at:
http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/na/zire/z22/unlocked/home/page_en.html
On my web page at :
http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

I have all the patches, fixes, work-arounds, maintenance, tips and tricks I could find.

Hope that this helps you to get your PALM Z22 working and useful once again!

good luck

Lost sync cable for palm z22 need replacement


Hi topplady:

The SYNC CABLE for the Palm Z22 is just the everyday, ordinary, USB "MIMI" cable that all USB devices like cell phones, MP3 players, etc. used for years. These used to be plentiful in 'dollar' stores, but have been replaced with the "MICRO" plug which is much thinner, so you may have to look around. I find piles of them in "Value" "Thrift" type stores now, since they are falling out of popularity, but they are everywhere if you take the time to look - and, since they are getting obsolete, they are really cheap... You can go online and look for " MINI USB CABLE" on Amazon, eBay, etc. where they are readily available...
I have an entire page devoted to the maintenance, up-keep, repair, and connection of the Palm Z22, so you can check it out for more tips, hints, suggestions, and information...

Recover lost calendar events on a Palm z22


Hi suzbt:
JOY's answer, that you try to do a SYSTEM RESTORE on your Computer to get the data back is a really good one, that I did not think of! All manual instructions, and USER instructions on doing a SYNC with the Palm Z22, REPEAT : 1/ Always have a back up of the hard data 2/ Always check all transferred DATA on a SYNC, "Even if it states 'transfer Successful'", 3/ Even, if necessary, write down the data, ...
There are a few software programs to identify FILE problems on the Z22, listed on my web page:

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

and ways to recover corrupt data, but these are getting more and more difficult to find and use...

User comments on the SYNC indicate that any SYNC is a risky procedure, and backups and re-checking all data is necessary at all times.

I hope that the information on my web site comes in useful in keeping the Palm Z22 up and running!

good luck

robin dusty graves

Palm z22 freezes up when traveling by air. hard


You need to make sure that you have all your information backed up on your computer as a hard reset will erase everything on your hand held. Here are the steps to do a hard reset:

1. Press and hold the power button.

2. While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus ( or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole on the back of your handheld.

3. Wait for the Palm Powered logo to appear, and then release the power button.

4. When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your handheld do one of the following:
a) Press UP on the 5 way navigator button on the bottom of your handheld to finish the reset and show the touch screen.
b) Press any other button to do a soft reset.

5. When prompted , tap to align the screen, and then set the language you want to use on your handheld. A screen appears showing the Palm logo and a progress bar. From there continue to set up your Palm and then do a hot sync. You should be able to reset a password if you want one. Best wishes....Hope this helps.

Can I hot sync z22 palm without the touchscreen?


The data on your old Z22 is very likely very secure, and the touch screen problem is very common - there are a few tricks to get the touch screen working long enough to transfer the data.
I have a web page entirely for maintaining, repairing, and interfacing your Z22 at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

You can try these tricks, or just replace the screen for $9 U.S., since the screen only needs you take the unit apart and flip open a connector lock ...

I would strongly advise getting a solid plastic cover over your new Z22, since this is the key to keeping the screen working...

hope the information is of help to you

good luck
