The issue you are experiencing usually occur due to the
Electrostatic Discharge. Due to electrostatic discharge neither the handheld nor the cradle is damaged, but the synchronization software needs to be reset by Palm handheld. You will need to place the Palm handheld in the Debug mode and leave it out of the cradle for at least 8 hours to 24 hours (Until the battery in your Palm handheld is drained completely and the Palm handheld powers off due to low battery). Please follow the steps mentioned below:

NOTE: Placing the Palm handheld in Debug mode will erase all the information on the Palm handheld. If you wish to Backup the information on your Palm handheld, you will need to use a Palm Backup card. The Palm Backup Card allows you to backup and restore data when you are not able to synchronize your Palm handheld to your desktop computer.
Please visit the following URL to purchase a Palm Backup card:

<<Placing the handheld in Debug Mode>>

NOTE: This step erases all data on your Palm handheld. Ensure that you back up your data on the computer to avoid data loss.

<< Back up user data >>

1. Double-click 'My Computer' on the Microsoft? Windows? Desktop and open the C: Drive.

2. Open the "Palm" or "Pilot" folder. If you are unable to locate the Palm folder, open the Program Files folder and then the Palm folder.

3. Right-click the user folder and select Copy.

NOTE: The user folder is a truncated version of your user name on the Palm handheld or the Palm Desktop. (User names are truncated as follows - John Smith is truncated as SmithJ, John L. Smith is truncated as LJ.)

4. Minimize the current open windows.

5. Right-click an empty location of your Windows Desktop and select Paste.

NOTE: If you have a password assigned on the Palm handheld, the security features of the Palm OS? will restrict the Palm handheld from entering the Debug Mode. In this case, you will need to first un-assign the password. To place your Palm(TM) handheld in the Debug Mode, please do the following:

1. Press and hold down the DOWN scroll button on the front of your handheld.

2. Using the reset tool in the stylus or an unfolded paper clip (or
similar object without a sharp tip), press and release the small reset button inside the hole ,on the back of your handheld.

3. Continue pressing the DOWN scroll button for several seconds.

4. Release the scroll button. Your Palm handheld screen may appear blank. If not, try steps 1 - 3 again. Blank Screen is an indicator that the Palm handheld is in Debug Mode.

5. After the battery charge is completely drained, you will need to
leave the Palm handheld in the cradle for a minimum of two hours to attain a full charge.

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.

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 handheld does not come on, did a hard reset, nothing


Confirm that both the cradle and the PDA ports are clean and free of dust or dirty.

Also, check your AC wall adapter to confirm that is working. The output should be +5.0 volts DC. Any repair shop has a multimeter need it to check it in no time.

If everything appears is OK, then confirm the PDA is properly placed in the cradle, and that the PDA is not loose on the cradle, indicating that the port contacts are not touching.

Best regards,

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,

Synch problem after installation


If your cradle is connected to a serial port, you will need to ensure that HotSync Manager is configured to use Serial Ports. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Click the HotSync Manager icon in the Windows system tray. 2. If there is a check mark next to the 'Local Serial' menu item, then you are already configured. 3. If there is not a check mark, click the 'Local Serial' option. For more information, refer to the handbook that came with your handheld. If you did not uninstall your previous version of Palm Desktop, the configuration will be done automatically.
