    I have just had exactly the same experience. The screen is off, even when plugged in for charging. It will not respond no matter where it is plugged in. Any and all help appreciated!

I would like to give my Zire 31 to a friend but need to erase all my information from it. How do I do this?


Do a HARD RESET on your PALM ZIRE 31.
A hard reset will erase everything on your device. All your data will be removed, and formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings.

  1. Press and hold the Power (on/off) button on the front panel of your device.
  2. While holding Power, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus. Gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device (where's the reset hole?).
  3. If you see a progress bar (see below), keep holding the Power button.
  4. Next, the Palm Powered screen will appear. Release the Power button when you see it.
  5. You'll see a screen that asks: Erase all data? YES = "up" button NO = any other button. Press UP on your 5-way navigator to complete the hard reset.

You may need to do a hard reset.

To perform a hard reset:
1. Press and hold the power button on the front panel of the handheld.
2. While holding the power button, use the tip of an unfolded paper clip (or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button.
3. Wait for the Palm Powered™ logo to appear; then release the power button.
4. When a message appears on the handheld screen, warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld, press any other button to perform a soft reset.

How do i fix a zire 21 palm it wont turn on, charge,work nothing


Hello.

From Palm support:

1. Press either the Date Book or Address Book button to see if
you can turn on your handheld that way.
2. Perform a soft reset: Use the tip of an unfolded paper clip
(or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the
reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your
handheld.
3. Make sure the power adapter is plugged securely into a
working electric outlet and is firmly connected to the
handheld. (If no outlet is available, your handheld can also
be charged through the USB cable, but this takes much
longer.)
Note: Your handheld does not have an indicator light to indicate that your handheld is being charged.
4. Charge for another three full hours.
5. If your handheld now turns on, check the charging-battery icon to ensure that your handheld is being charged. Example:
a. Connect the handheld to an outlet and turn it on.
b. Tap Home .
c. Look for the lightning bolt on the battery icon at the top of the screen.
d. If you do not see the lightning bolt, repeat steps 3 and 4.

Hope this helps.
