You may try power cycling your PDA. To do this, please follow the steps below:

1. Turn off your PDA.
2. Remove the battery for couple of minutes.
3. Put the battery back and turn the PDA back on.

If problem exist, you need to perform a firmware upgrade for your PDA.

Here, I provided you the link where you can download the firmware for free:

http://www.opendrivers.com/company/2996/palm-free-driver-download.html

NOTE: Check the link and click the "Palm driver for free download"

Otherwise, it is still the best to consult the manufacturer for second opinion.

Have a great day!

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...

Lost my Cd to my palm z22. Does any one know were I can download the porgram for my palm. So I can put info on my computer. :)


behoney56:

The information support page for the Palm Z22 has moved around over the past few years. It is now at

http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/na/zire/z22/unlocked/home/page_en.html

As well, I have an entire web page devoted just to maintaining, repairing, and using the Palm Z22, at:

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

As the Palm Z22 ages, there are issues with old and dying batteries, with the touch screen deforming and becoming useless, and various DATA connectivity issues, since the new Windows 64 BIT Operating Systems did not yet exist when the Z22 was diss-continued.

On my web page are links and USER information on the various solutions that they found, as well as a bit of information that I discovered, which is hitherto unknown!

Hope these tid-bits of help get your Palm Z22 up and running properly...

good luck

I tried to sinc my palm Z22 with my new computer, but It shows that my drivers aren't installed. what's wrong??????????????


Palm as a corporation went out of business years ago, and there are no drivers for the new Microsoft Windows versions that were made AFTER Palm no longer existed! HP (Hewlett Packard) bought the Palm Operating System and has the basic the basic drivers and manuals online, however, only "other" corporations that use various PALM type devices, now support interfacing. I have listed all those that I have found on my web page, dedicated to repairing, maintaining, and interfacing the Z22, at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
I do not SYNC my Palm at all, so that you will have to rely on all the USER comments that I have included.

good luck

The touchscreen of my Z22 is broken


The Z22 is a bullet-proof device for securely saving your personal data, and full marks go to the team at PALM for its solid design. However, the AGE of the Z22, over the last decade, results in 3 problems - the batteries are all dying, and the delicate plastic touchscreen top layer is deteriorating - simply through AGE. When you say the touchscreen is "Broken", I would guess you mean that it does not respond to touch commands from the black plastic stylus that sits in the slot on the back, side, of the unit, when stored. I have never actually seen or heard of a screen that is physically "broken" - like the thousands of iPod, iPhone, Motorola RAZOR, and other touch screen phones that you see today, with cracks running across the broken GLASS. It "Could" happen that the glass screen under the top plastic touch layer is, actually "BROKEN", with the resulting cracks, but this is unlikely, since the trim around the screen is raised a HUGE distance, compared to today's touchscreens.
You can easily replace the screen for $9 if you wait for free shipping from CHINA, or, you can try a few tricks I learned on my Z22 over the years. I have put it in the freezer - which worked temporarily, heated it with a hair dryer - which worked temporarily, and peeled the top plastic layer off the screen- which worked temporarily. I have also replaced the screen with a new one. It is IMPERATIVE to put a hard plastic cover on the Z22 at all times- or you will eventually loose the screen again...
My Z22 page is at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

I hope this helps you to get your Z22 back up and running

have fun
good luck

Forgot password can't hotsync z22


Hi,
The first thing I would do would be to do a hard reset and then you should be able to hotsync it. I am sending you a link to the palm support for your z22. At the bottom of the page is a link for free chat. I have used this myself and I was able to get my problem solved in a few short minutes. Hope this helps. Gotta love that palm.

How do I get the old address and name off of it the z22


Ok that is an easy fix. Open up your palm desktop software and click on "tools" which it up in the upper left hand corner of your palm desktop. Click on that and then on "users". From there you will get another box and in there it will show the name that is associated with the PDA. You can delete that name and add the name of your choice.

Best wishes.

Palm Z22 won't sync, USB Device Not Recognized


The Z22 is very well designed to PROTECT your stored data - do NOT do a RESET, since this has nothing to do with your problem! It sounds like your USB cable is damaged- a very common problem, usually one of the 4 or 5 wires near one end of the cable or the other, breaks inside the plastic covering, and you loose connectivity. The "OLD" Style USB end that plugs into the Z22 is getting difficult to find, since it has been replaced with the smaller "MICRO" version, available everywhere (As of 2014 ! ) It is available online very inexpensively.
I have a full page of information on the Z22, and how to repair, take-apart, maintain, and connect it. It is at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
I hope that this information helps you to get your
Z22 up and running again.

good luck
