Question about Palm IIIx Handheld
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.
