Re: palm Z22 does not turn on

Buy a new one and get a 2 year extended warranty. Save yourself a lot of time. BestBuy is selling them for $89.99 plus $12 for the warranty which includes 1 replacement. If you like the Z22 this is the best deal

My Palm Z22 won't turn on. If I do a hard reset

It absolutely won't, you don't have to worry. I've done it several times, and I know I was really nervous at first, but it's fine.

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.

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:

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

I have a Z22 Palm in German. How do I switch to english?

Do a hard reset. Hold the on/off button while simultaneously pushing reset button on back. Keep on/off button pushed until Palm Powered screen appears. This erases all data and gives language options.

Lights on, nobody home

By accident, I did a hard restart while plugged into my computer. That fixed it. Don't know why.

Just had to do a hard reset myself and it's not straight forward! While holding down the power button, BRIEFLY press the reset button on the back of the palm. DO NOT RELEASE the POWER button until you see the GRAY screen with the Palm logo (not the first screen with the palm logo). That should start the hard reset for you.
