Re: broken screen

If you have tried the soft and hard resets and the touchpad is still not responding, you may need a new digitizer. You can get them on ebay for around $10-12. I just replaced mine and wrote up how to do it in an answer for another touchpad problem that was posted. The digitizer and tools come with no instructions, but I figured it out. Be gentle, and you can probably do the same. If you need more help, write again, and I will write out my process.

Re: broken screen

The problem could be the touchscreen but, typically, with the Z22 it's more of a configuration problem. I would recommend doing a "hard reset" after syncronizing. To reset the unit to factory specs hold in the reset (in the back) and the power button simultaneously for, at least, five seconds. Instead of the Palm icon you'll see a prompt to push up on the touchpad to reset to factory defaults. Then, go through the entire setup process, including the Digitizer to initialize and calibrate the touchpad. Hopefully, that should restore the touchpad. Otherwise, well, replacing that thing yourself is NOT easy.

You can find replacements easily on eBay.

Screen not responding following extended period of storage...

The digitizer is very thin and paired with the screen. Sometimes they can get so pressed together with time and storage that can cause it to fail. Some people believe that you can put a spacer in there to separate them and try to "unstick it". This involves taking your screen apart and it might not even fix your issue. I would look on eBay or other sources for a replacement screen and just replace the whole thing personally.

The touch-screen on my Mio Digiwalker c310 pocket GPS navigation unit is mostly broken. Some regions still respond properly to touch, but most of it barely responds if at all. Looks like it got water in...

The connection to the glass is usually through a series of small conductive rubber strips around the perimeter (like a gasket). If the pressure on the rubber is released slightly, it may not touch the glass or the circuit board on the other side. The pressure is held mechanically when the assembly is clamped together.
Liquids could short the rubber strips causing unpredictable display and touch screen operation. It would need to be dismantled and cleaned.
Another possibility is the ribbon wire to the LCD assembly is loose or even cracked so the traces are broken apart in the ribbon.
The LCD assembly is difficult to repair by dismantling. I wouldn't recommend it.

Touchscreen does not respond to touch

This is straight from Palm Support...
1.Press and hold the UP button on the front panel of your device.

2.While holding the UP button, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus, to gently press the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device

3.The Palm Computing Platform screen will appear. Release the UP button when you see it.

Screen not responding to touch

Solved same problem.
Same model ipaq 1940.
Sorry for my bad english;this is what You can do:
Open the ipaq
Remove the mainboard
My problem was the connection between LCD and Touchscreen.
So I solved putting on the connection 3cm of tape to have a fully working contact.Indeed, the lower part of cable, with the 2 little holes was disconnected.
After this all becames to life!
I hope helps!

In italiano: 3 cm di nastro adesivo fra LCD e touchscreen.Il loro contatto non era perfetto.Ora tutto funziona.Con un po' di manualità si riesce a fare senza problemi!
Saluti, Vit

Broken screen

Replacement of the digitizer, if the lcd is still intact. If that is damaged as well...sell it for parts, or get parts from another. The EM500 and E125 share the same lcd/digitizer.
