    How will I restore my data to the handheld?  The hotsync function just says handheld to desktop and not the other way so I'm afraid that if I erase everything and then do a hotsync that the then blank handheld will override and erase all the data on the desktop.  Will it?

I would do a hard reset...but after you are sure have backed up your data, as it will wipe back to factory settings....

1...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.
2... Wait for the Palm Powered™ logo to appear, and then release the power button.
3... When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your
handheld, do one of the following:

• Press Up on the 5-way navigator to finish the reset and show the touchscreen.
• Press any other button to do a soft reset.

Cannot select or delete a memo item.


I had this happen and the way I got around it was to delete the memo entry from the desk top and then set hotsync so the desktop to overwrite the handheld and force the new memo data into the z22.

I don't know what the root cause is. The problem is a corrupted data file but no idea what causes this other than something that can interrupt the writing of the file data. It might happen again as all this does is fix the error not the cause. Having said that I had this happen a few times within a short time then have never had it since (a few years).

I have an entry in the memo feature of my palm. Everytime I try to access the information the palm goes black and reboots? What causes this to happen and how can I retrieve the information?


When a Palm OS device reboots like that, it shows that there is a driver conflict. Somewhere along the line some software that was installed is conflicting with other software on the device and causes the reset. I would suggest deleting applications from the device one by one and testing after each to see if the reset is still happening. If you are using the Palm Desktop software that came with the device and performed a Sync (backup) after you created the Memo... it should be saved and accessible in the Desktop software (Memo tab). If no Sync was performed after creating the Memo, you will need to remove applications one at a time until the software conflict is removed allowing you to run your device without the constant reboots. It's a bit of a tedious process, but the only solution if you didn't back up the device after creating the memo you are trying to retrieve.

Hope that helps

Screen goes blank and requires a soft reset with "memo"


I believe that this problem relates to the BlackScreenOFDeath or BSoD - which is caused by a low or weak battery allowing the CONTROL Logic circuits to get into an invalid state where the ON/OFF/SLEEP/CHARGE/ FUNCTION transistors are niether on nor off. I would recommend getting a new battery as soon as possible. Doing a SOFT RESET "may" get you temporarily going again. DO NOT do a HARD RESET !. I have posted many discussions on the Z22 that you may find helpful, on my tiny website,
http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
One other possibility, is to take apart the Z22, and wipe the buttons and traces with a soft damp cloth to remove oils, water, and possible spilt liquids from the touch/snap/button/discs areas. Even the tiniest trace of conductive liquids will short out the logic circuits, causing "unknown: states on the control circuits.
My answer on the BLack ScreenofDeath, is as follows:
__________________________________________________
The Z22 suffers from 3 problems. One of these is the Black Screen of *****. I got a used Z22, and over the years discovered this problem. The small battery was a perfect fit of power and size when manufactured, decades ago, but, time alone has deteriorated the capacity, so that a "NEW" , sealed-in-the-box Z22 today, has a weak, dying battery that needs replacing. These are $10 free shipping from China. The BSoD seems to be caused by a dip in power from the battery to the LOGIC CIRCUITS that control the ON/OFF/SLEEP/CHARGE, etc states of the Z22. If the logic gets out of sync, the unit is in an INVALID state, will not charge, nor respond to the LOGIC buttons on the front - these buttons are NOT the standard ON/OFF buttons from the past that mechanically connected or diss-connected power. All the buttons on the Z22 are touch snap disks that are connected to transistors, to flip logic states. THUS, is the power in any of the transistors gets low, the transistor is neither ON nor OFF, and the control circuits are in a messed-up state. Or another way of looking at it, the ON button is a logic gate on a transistor network, and the only way to activate the "ON" logic state, is with full power to the circuits! -- the power on the Z22 is ALWAYS ON. . . The screen may turn off, and the chips may go into "sleep" mode, but the Z22 is always on. SO if there as a weak battery, you may get the random Black Screen of *****. The GOOD news, is the the DATA and programs that you purchased are incredibly SAFE, as long as you do NOT do the HARD RESET (which someone suggested ! (NOT ) ). I have ripped apart the Z22 dozens of times, and subjected it to freezing and heating and all sorts of horrible things, the data has always been 100% reliable, -- stored in permanent memory. There is a quick way to get rid of the BSoD - you have to open the unit and cut one of the two battery wires, wait 2 minutes to kill the logic circuit power, then re-connect. I added a switch on the Z22, just for this purpose. I would recommend, if you get the Z22 re-powered, to get a new battery as soon as possible. This should clear the BSoD for a while. See my tiny website :
http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.htm
There are many photographs and step by step procedures to try to get the data off the device, maintain the Z22, get parts, and use the Z22 with the new 64 Bit Windows computers. The BEST way to use the Z22 would be to get an old Widows 32 bit laptop (ie WinXP), and simply connect the Z22 in a standard way using the software that it was designed for... The new patches to 64 bit machines, are very limited, and many previous features do not work.
So the bottom line - all your data, information, and programs are safe. You simply have to reset the LOGIC CIRCUITS (this has nothing to do with the PALM Z22 SOFT and HARD Resets !) - it has to do with disconnecting the power from the battery, or waiting until the battery is COMPLETELY DEAD ! (which can take a long time! )...
Good luck

LCD screen went blank


to fix this problem is usualy simple, 90% of the time if you have a blank screen it is because the screen has come unplugged, open the casing of the phone and just plug the screen back into the circuit borad this should solve ur problem, please note this does not work if you have full white screen. hope this helps people with this problem.

Blackjack II blank start screen


Hi dogbyte,

For some reason, certain Windows Mobile (Standard) devices don't like "list" format for the Start Menu.

Give this a try:
1) Remove the battery for 1-2 minutes. (This allows any cached memory to clear)
2) Power the device back up.
3) Before openning ANY other apps, navigate to Start > Settings > Display > Start Menu Style
4) Change this value from "List" to "Grid"
5) Click Done twice, then click the Home key.
6) Give the Start menu another try. (Does this resolve the issue?)

Another forum suggested that Windows Mobile seems to be a little picky about which application appears first on the Start Menu. If you have any custom applications installed, it's possible WinMo's start menu just isn't playing nicely.

Hope this helps!

Memos soft resets device


Sounds like you may need to clean out your memos. Are you talking about the memo icon on the screen or do you have a memo button on the button panel. If you have a memo button, there may be something wrong with it, and you may have to use the icon.

Blank screen


Try soft reseting your phone. If that doesnt work then try hard reseting.  To soft reset take the stylus pen and push in the little hole on the bottom of the phone. You should feel a little click and then your phone will restart. Wait until your phone  starts up again and if it still isnt working then do a hard reset. 
 To hard reset, hold down the green send button and the red end call button at the same time and continue to hold them down as you then push your stylus pen into the hole on the bottom of the phone untill you feel the little click. Your phone should start to reset.  Be warned you will loose any information saved to the phones memory ie: phone numbers, pictures, personal settings. Anything saved to your memory card should be ok.
If your screen remains blank after trying both resets I would suggest taking it back to where you got it and and have them fix it or replace it.
Hope this is helpful.

You can do a hard reset by doing the following...

01) Press and hold down the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
02) While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the "Reset" button/hole on the back of the iPAQ until the screen goes blank.
03) Release the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
04) Press the "Reset" button/hole again (so that it resets/powers on.)
