Hard reset does not fix, digitizer will not respond

My PalmOne Zire 31 PDA freezes. A soft reset doesn't get it going again but a hard reset has, until now. This time, a hard reset displayed the digitizer target as before, but tapping on the bulls-eye only moves the target from top left to lower right of the screen and back again. How do I clear out the problem and re-install the programs from scratch? (at the moment, I cannot access HotSynch).

    The same issue just started on my palm. I can hard reset and get the digitizer screen but it never finishes asking me to touch the circles as they move from corner to corner.

If you want to reset the password for your palm, go into prefs, then security.

In there, you want to try to get the unassign/lost password to come up.

Click on the -Assigned- and look for lost password/unassign.
If it doesn't appear there initially, try to enter the incorrect password several times.

A window should pop up asking if you want to reset/unassign the password.

There is a reset pin hole on the back of the unit; Hold the power button and push the reset button in the hole with a paperclip. All memory should now be erased.

I did not write the posting attributed to me. I have a Palm Tungsten E. My Dad had been using it and I needed to know how to do a hard reset so it would accept my info. I found that on the Palm site after looking on your site. I performed the hard reset and hot synced the Palm with my info.

Thank you, Sue Nutt

I want to delete a user on my zire31 pda


You should be able to hard reset the palm and erase all data. There should be a rest pin hole on the back, hold it and press the power button. All internal memory will be erased.

Double Screen on Zire 31


Have you tried a reset? You might have to open up the case (carefuly, i broke the cables by accident on mine doing that)and wiggle the cables around, As they could have shaken lose over time. if all that fails, you might have to do a hard reset or re-instal the software.

Palm OS-based PDA freezes up


If you’re not sure what file or application is causing the problem, you’ll need to perform a hard reset. Before you do this, be sure to perform a HotSync so your data is properly backed up (the hard reset will erase all data on the PDA). To perform a hard reset, press the power button while performing a soft reset. Replace the power button when you see the Palm/PalmOne logo and press the Up button when prompted.

Next, find your Backup folder on the desktop. You’ll usually find this folder located within your user folder, which is usually located in either C:\Program Files\Palm, C:\Program Files\palmOne, or C:\Program Files\Handspring. Your personal folder will resemble the user name you selected for your device. If you used your first and last name, for instance, your user folder will likely be the first six letters of your first name followed by the first letter of your last name. Rename the Backup file to Backup.old and HotSync your Palm to restore personal data. Because you renamed your Backup folder, no applications or additional files will be restored at this point. Instead, an empty new Backup folder will appear. Move applications from your Backup.old folder into the new Backup folder one at a time and HotSync your Palm. After each HotSync, try to reproduce the problem. If the problem doesn’t reappear, move on to the next file. Delete any files that cause a problem after they are moved onto your PDA.

Enjoy! Pls.rate me if it's done. Thanks.

Kindly regards,

What is LyncHS, and Why am I crashing EVERY day?!


LyncHS, Zire 72, Soft Reset and XP Professional I do a sync and my PDA crashes... I have to do a soft reset almost every single time. I have been having the same exact problem but cannot seem to find anyone who can help!!!! Before I got my Zire 72 I had this problem with my Sony Clie. I even narrowed it down to this LyncHS application and still could not get help. I finally purchased a new PDA because I was getting tired of this happening. It was not the PDA... it is the Palm OS or a Palm application that is a problem. I have not installed ANY third party applications so PalmOne needs to quit trying to tell me to uninstall those. MitaMe, you are absolutely correct... this is not acceptable and since I am not the only one having problems, I fully expect PalmOne to take it more seriously and try to resolve it. I should not have to perform a soft reset most every time I sync on my Windows XP Professional PC. By the way, I sync on my computer at home which is not Windows XP Pro and this does NOT happen.
