Palm IIIx Screens Die

Have had a succession of Palm IIIx screens go blank -- not sure if device still working in there. Is this a common problem because these machines are aging out, or is there some solution? Thanks for any insight...

Well, the Palm III line has a product design defect. The cable that connects to the screen is right next to the stylus; the stylus could rub on the cable and eventually disconnect it. Use a small Philips screwdriver and remove all four screws. Use a flathead and pry the case open gently. There is a white ribbon cable next to the stylus: make sure it is seated firmly. To reassemble, do the opening steps backward.

It is possible that screen connector got loose. My initial intermitent problem was that PDA wouldn't turn on properly, the screen would flicker and/or show grey area. On my palm IIIx I did remove the back cover and pushed the connector all the way in the slot and now it works just fine.

Palm IIIx power problem


You did it right, but are you sure the new batteries are fresh, and they are inserted correctly?

Double check. It is really easy to put the batteries in wrong if you haven't used the device in a while. And batteries can be bad, even if newly purchased.

If the Palm was working the last time you used it, being inactive wouldn't kill it. If the batteries that were in it all this time leaked, The leaking chemicals could damage the unit. But that would be pretty obvious when you took the old batteries out.

Once the batteries run down to zero, you would lose any data that was stored in in the. You would have to re-load it from a backup. Even so, it would boot up and take you to the setup screens when you turn it on with working batteries.

Make sure the batteries are OK. Sometimes, even brand new ones are defective.

No Screen on Palm Treo 700wx


Send the device to the people over at www.fhonwizards.com for them to troubleshoot and most likely replace the screen.  Although, it may only need to be reconnected inside.

Treo 755 smartphone froze then screen went blank. Buttons don't work


This might not be to everyones taste. But my Palm 750v after being put through hell in my pocket started to freeze, have blank screens on reset, and generally playing up and not working. I found that bending it on top and bottom (not screen), pressing on the speaker part while bending, and twisting it gently restored it to work fashion, well enough to back everything up. I had to keep it bent to get it to bootup all the way through its screens. I hope this helps, but it might not be for everyone.

Retreiving information off barely-functioning IIIx


Sorry to hear about your trusty little workhorse dying, but all is not lost, meaning your data. You'll just need to get a replacement sync cable that can somehow replace the old RS232 connection. You should be able to use the same cable that connects to the m100 without spending the extra money to buy the old Palm MacPac. Once you've got your data retrieved your new device (I assume you're addicted like the rest of us) should offer you more options. Otherwise you may want to consider getting a USB or Firewire expansion card.
