Hi, I had the problem after the battery was discharged for a long period. when i charged it and turned it on, i got the message "tap the center" but with no luck. i found out that the lipo battery in the palm was like inflated to double size and therfore was pressing on the backside of the screen, as i removed the back cover it vorked just fine ( if you want to turn it on when the back cover is off, there is a "sabotage" switch you have to press to make it operate, it is located just behind the on button)

I have the same problem and discovered that the right side of the screen had "spread". When I draw a line from the left to the right using Note Pad, the line ends up about 1/4 inch above the stylus. What I had to do is touch the stylus about 1/8th of an inch above the center of the digitizer target on the right side.

You aren't going to find that information anywhere. My advice is to either return it to Palm, or buy a spare one. There is one for $4 that needs a charger.

Malfunctioning keyboard. If touch a letter A a different letter will come up. same thing trying to use the calculater.

the screen needs calibration. below are the instruction on how to calibrate the screen. The Digitizer Preferences screen opens the digitizer calibration screen. This is the same screen that appears when you start your handheld for the first time. You can recalibrate your screen after a hard reset or if your digitizer drifts. You may need to repeat this process a few times until the calibration registers. To calibrate your handheld screen: 1. From the General Preferences list, select Digitizer. 2. Tap the targets as indicated on the screen as precisely as possible.
TIP You can also press Left, Right, Up, and Down on the navigator to highlight a Preferences screen name and then press Select on the navigator to open that Preferences screen.

Zire 71 screen does not sense stylus input -- even after performing a reset.

Try doing a hard reset. This will erase everything on your zire and restore it to brand new settings. To do a hard reset make sure you have everything backup on your palm desktop. Here are the steps for the hard reset:

1. Hold down the power button and then depress the small hole in the back with the tip of your stylus2.gif.

2. Continue to hold them both in until you see the Palm2.gif logo.

3. Let go of both of them and then follow the onscreen directions. You will want to answer yes and use the 5 way navigation button on the bottom of your pda and hit up so that is completes the reset. After that you will have to set up your touch screen and go through the tapping the target. After you have gone through all this then do a hotsync. It should clear up your problem. Best wishes.

Turn it on it says Set UP using stylus. But nothing happens.

The digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

You can find digitizer parts in ebay or other on-line companies, at reasonable prices.

Regarding the labor cost, depending of the repair shop you choose, it may be cheap or expensive.

Zire won't come on

You need to follow the procedure to calibrate the digitizer.

If the screen does not respond to the stylus, then the digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

Goofy thing going on

Try resetting the digitizer on the Setup programs, it works for me, but needs resetting every so often. a lot easier (and cheaper) than buying a new screen for such an old machine.

Palm Zire 71... mind of its own

first use the digitizer in the prefs program on your palm
if that doesnt work someone or something has damaged your screen by pressing too ******* it and youll need to find a screen replacement Palm offers the safest and best job for 140 or something like that i recommend going somewhere else (to save money), just do some research and know who you're sending your palm to first

Zire 71 collected moisture

The digitizer function reads from the input of the LCD touch screen, so I would say LCD.
