Question about Palm Zire 71 Handheld

Palm Zire 71 works when it is on the sync but not off

I just got the Palm Zire 71 from a co-worker.  When they gave it to me they said it needs a new battery. I went home that night to try and turn it on and it brought me to the set-up screen. I went through that and after a little bit the screen went dark and shut off. I purchased a new battery and installed it, after charging it over night I went to take it off of the sync charger and the same thing happened again.  After that happened I put it back on the charger and pushed the on button- it turned on but brought me to the set-up menu. I went through that process and moved it a tad bit and the screen went dim and went black. Pushed the sync button to turn it on again and it brought me to the set-up menu again! Does this everytime I turn it on. Am I right in assuming this is not because of the battery? Please help

You are right
there is a component on the main board of your PDA
that is most likely fried
power from the PC chord will go to the PDA
but when you unplug it the machine will look to the battery for power
and the electricity will convert to heat at the point of that fried component
on the more thin Palm models you can feel it without taking the case off

and it will "forget" any new information you input due to the type of memory it uses

Forgot password to hot sync palm zire 71


You can create a new profile and set your options again. It's more work but it will solve the problem.

Side note: I use a great program called eWallet from iliumsoft that supports Palm, iPhone, Windows Mobile, and more to store passwords in. Works great.

Palm zire 71 replaced battery camera and charging port not wrking


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,
