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!

So many things did affect the display of TS, one may be you use driver to intall TS on your system, driver may be corrupt, or some thing pressure affects the display of TS, try it in another system apart from the one you are using if everything is fine, this means it is from your system, if not it will be from TS itself, so best suggestion is to find technician nearest to check for you

Hope it will solve your problem.

Thanks

Just from reading your issue I assume you're either prior or current military?

First, see what the return conditions are from the store you bought it from. It could be a defective system.

The stylus has a point that is very sensitive and if used too hard or not taken care of properly could cause it not to work. First thing suggested to fix if you need to throw money at this is to replace the stylus. They are relatively inexpensive.

You may have to send it out. There is a ribbon cable internally that may not be connected properly and/or at all. Do not open this unit yourself as it could void your waranty.

Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.

V/r,

SOURCE: I have a palm z22 Pda the tochksrceen is no working

There are several answers listed in Fixya under Z22 and touchpad or touch screen. You can start by trying to clean under the edges of the face frame with a credit card or something similar. If that doesn't work, try a soft reset by pushing the reset button on the back of the device. If that doesn't work, you can do a hard reset, but it loses all the data in the device. If you have it stored on your desktop calendar, this might solve the problem. To do a hard reset, check this site for instructions. http://kb.palm.com/wps/portal/kb/common/article/42094_en.html

If those steps don't work, you may need to replace the digitizer. You can pay someone to do it, or you can buy the part on ebay for about $12. Get one that comes with the tools you will need. Unfortunately, they don't come with instructions. I have posted the instructions in several places on Fixya. If you can't find them, write again. Hopefully the easier steps will do the trick.

The touchscreen of my Z22 is broken


The Z22 is a bullet-proof device for securely saving your personal data, and full marks go to the team at PALM for its solid design. However, the AGE of the Z22, over the last decade, results in 3 problems - the batteries are all dying, and the delicate plastic touchscreen top layer is deteriorating - simply through AGE. When you say the touchscreen is "Broken", I would guess you mean that it does not respond to touch commands from the black plastic stylus that sits in the slot on the back, side, of the unit, when stored. I have never actually seen or heard of a screen that is physically "broken" - like the thousands of iPod, iPhone, Motorola RAZOR, and other touch screen phones that you see today, with cracks running across the broken GLASS. It "Could" happen that the glass screen under the top plastic touch layer is, actually "BROKEN", with the resulting cracks, but this is unlikely, since the trim around the screen is raised a HUGE distance, compared to today's touchscreens.
You can easily replace the screen for $9 if you wait for free shipping from CHINA, or, you can try a few tricks I learned on my Z22 over the years. I have put it in the freezer - which worked temporarily, heated it with a hair dryer - which worked temporarily, and peeled the top plastic layer off the screen- which worked temporarily. I have also replaced the screen with a new one. It is IMPERATIVE to put a hard plastic cover on the Z22 at all times- or you will eventually loose the screen again...
My Z22 page is at:

I hope this helps you to get your Z22 back up and running

have fun
good luck

Palm z22 freezes up when traveling by air. hard


You need to make sure that you have all your information backed up on your computer as a hard reset will erase everything on your hand held. Here are the steps to do a hard reset:

1. Press and hold the power button.

2. While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus ( or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole on the back of your handheld.

3. Wait for the Palm Powered logo to appear, and then release the power button.

4. When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your handheld do one of the following:
a) Press UP on the 5 way navigator button on the bottom of your handheld to finish the reset and show the touch screen.
b) Press any other button to do a soft reset.

5. When prompted , tap to align the screen, and then set the language you want to use on your handheld. A screen appears showing the Palm logo and a progress bar. From there continue to set up your Palm and then do a hot sync. You should be able to reset a password if you want one. Best wishes....Hope this helps.

How do i fix the touch screen on my palm z22?


I am repeating a previous answer, since it covers most of the common problems :
The Palm Z22 is, I have found out, a bullet-proof design in regards to reliably keeping your valuable "DATA" safe over time. The Engineers at PALM really did a good job of Data integrity compared to many other devices. HOWEVER -- there are 3 common problems with the growing AGE of the Z22, 2 are with the dying batteries, and 1 with the years of wear and tear on the touch screen. The battery is a typical square, thin, modern Lithium battery, wired in with two wires ( + positive, red, and - negative, black ) that can be
taken out and replaced if you take the unit apart. In a brand new, in-the-box package, the battery is dying simply from old age. If the Z22 was used heavily, the constant cycling from dead to fully charged wears out the battery even more. The Touchscreen is a thin layer of plastic stretched over a sheet of glass, with a tiny air gap in between. Over time, the top plastic layer deforms - with hot and cold, air pressure changes, and being pressed by wearing the unit in a pocket, purse, briefcase, or even in a drawer with pencils, pens, and staplers etc. It is very important to have a hard cover over the screen! Other than just having the battery loose its weak charge continually, there is a problem with the unit getting into a state of BLACK SCREEN - it does not charge and remains "apparently" dead, since the logic circuits are in an invalid state, and it can only be reset if the battery dies COMPLETELY to remove the power on the logic circuits.
I have covered the topics of the battery problems, the data problems, the screen problems, and the disassembly, maintenance, and security, and how to get data off the unit, particularly to the new Windows Operating Systems that were developed AFTER the Z22 was no longer made. This is at
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
I have ripped apart the Z22 repeatedly, and posted pictures of the various steps to service these units. There are links to aftermarket software to transfer data, and examples of how to USE the Z22, for valid purposes. This should be a one-stop source for any information or troublehooting the Z22, for those who have the Z22 and want to keep it operating!
good luck

Palm z22-Touchscreen wont work


The Palm Z22 is a very solidly designed device to reliably store your personal data, however, it is subject to 3 failure mechanisms, all related to its AGE of over a decade of use. The batteries are all dying - even in an UNOPENED, sealed, "AS-NEW" package, the battery is almost dead. The TOUCH SCREEN is a delicate stretched layer of plastic on top of a layer of glass. The top layer bends down a touches the glass layer, and invisible layers of "wiring", electro-deposited on the layers, touch each other. Over time, with air-pressure changes, heat and cold, and mostly objects pressing on the screen (such as carrying it in a pocket, purse, briefcase, or even leaving it in a drawer with pencils, paper, pens, staplers, etc.) , the top plastic layer deforms and touches the bottom layer, which renders the touch screen dead.
My page on the Z22 is at :
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
and has tips and tricks on temporarily getting your screen working, as well as how to replace it yourself - $9 U.S. free shipping from China.
I hope that this helps you get your Z22 up and running again, and helps you to keep it functioning.

good luck

Touch screen on Palm Z22 does not respond


The Data on your Z22 is rock-solid safe, but unlike the answer that states to do a RESET- DO NOT ! The touch screen problem has nothing to do with resetting, it is a failure of the soft plastic top layer of the touch screen. There is a tiny, remote possibility that the logic circuits are out of sync and the touchscreen really is mixed up in a software state, and a SOFT RESET may reset the touch screen, but this is almost unheard of ( but does happen).
I have an entire page on the Z22 and how to maintain, repair and interface it. It is at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

I would suggest trying a few tricks listed on my web page, and see if you can get the screen to work again. It is IMPERATIVE to get a hard plastic cover over the screen to keep it working!

Please read over the information on the Z22 page.

good luck

Can I hot sync z22 palm without the touchscreen?


The data on your old Z22 is very likely very secure, and the touch screen problem is very common - there are a few tricks to get the touch screen working long enough to transfer the data.
I have a web page entirely for maintaining, repairing, and interfacing your Z22 at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

You can try these tricks, or just replace the screen for $9 U.S., since the screen only needs you take the unit apart and flip open a connector lock ...

I would strongly advise getting a solid plastic cover over your new Z22, since this is the key to keeping the screen working...

hope the information is of help to you

good luck

Stylus taps to screen don't result in any changes


Hi there JL Dakota. I had many problems with my Z22 over the years. The top layer of the screen is a plastic sheet that must remain stretched completely ABOVE the lower layer of glass that it sits above. Going to Florida, from a colder climate, for example could WARM the screen up a bit, and allow it to stretch, and hit the lower layer. If it touches the lower layer, it shorts out, and will not respond to any touches after that. Putting it in the freezer will shrink the top layer of plastic temporarily, and allow touching the screen to push it down where you touch. Usually this problem is the result of years of NOT protecting the screen from being pushed on by having a HARD COVER over the screen - for example, keeping the Z22 in a pocket, a shirt pocket, a bag, a purse, a briefcase, even in a drawer full of pens, paper, stapler, etc. would TOUCH the screen, and eventually stretch it. If you see my website analysis of the Z22 kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html , there are many photographs, and discussions on the various typical Z22 problems that I ran into, and the solutions. These include touchscreen problems, and include putting in the freezer, using a heat gun or hot air hair dryer, splitting the top layer and bottom layer of the screen apart, putting in a new screen ($9 US), etc. I discuss many other issues. Immediately getting a hard cover over the unit at all times is the single most important factor! Once the screen top layer is warped, just sitting the Z22 down upside down might let gravity pull the screen gently away from the glass substrate. Rubbing the screen, using your fingers, sitting the Z22 down on an angle, touching the screen with anything, all could cause it to deform and touch the bottom layer constantly... the link again is below. The general circuit board is incredibly tough, and the amount of abuse it took when I tore it apart repeatedly is amazing. Generally it is bullet proof. The dying battery, the extremely delicate touch screen, and the possibility of buttons shorting, are the biggest problems. Do take a look at the full discussion on the subject at the link. Good luck.
