Re: tapwave zodiac 2

Remove any SD cards and check to make sure no buttons are stuck. Then do a function reset. This prevents system extensions from loading (you will need a soft reset after that to get back to normal operating mode). If that doesn't help, do a hard reset (this will wipe your data and you will need to restore it). If the problem comes back after you restore your data, you will need to hard reset again and restore your apps singly or a few at a time, until you locate which one is causing the problem. Or it may come back when you put your SD cards back in, in which case you may have one or more corrupted files there.

I have a demo version Zodiac Z2. I heard there's a "reversion program" to activate it. I want to know how to get that software.

I tried to find it anywhere online, however I can't find one. You may want to contact your manufacturer for sure they can provide you if there's new software for it.

Bluetooth prob

Last I checked, Zodiacs are not phones, but are able to connect to a bluetooth enabled phone. Google a chord for it, Google is always your friend.

My screen for my zodiac tapwave 1 has a brown blob on it, like it was crushed. Is there an easy fix it for this?

Sounds like the LCD is broken. Tapwave has been out of business for a while now, so replacement parts aren't readily available; however, if you go on ebay and look for "Tapwave Zodiac Demo" you may find a demo unit. You can take the LCD off of this unit and replace your broken one.

Here is one listing

Hope this helps,

The half-white screen is definitely not a good sign. The "hold and tap" screen you see is the alignment screen normally seen at a "fresh" startup.

If this is the PPC6800 Mogul, there is a small pinhole reset button on the bottom of the unit. Using the stylus, push the button, This will "soft reset" the unit.

If this doesn't work, you can try hard resetting it:

1. Press and hold both softkeys on the device. (The soft keys are the buttons to the left and right of the center navigation wheel with the white dots on them) Keep these keys pressed, and at the same time, use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your device.

2. Release the stylus but keep the softkeys pressed when you see the following message on your device screen:
“Do you want to erase all user data and restore to manufacture default?”
3. Slide open the keyboard, and press R to restore to factory default or press X to exit the hard reset process.

This may take a few tries, as it's hard to hold the buttons and push the reset button.

Tapwave2 backlight out

If the backlight went at the same time as you replaced the battery, check to make sure you didn't damage or loosen any cables in there.

Unable to shut my z22 down

Having exact same problem. 2 options to turn it off 1.) reset button on back and 2.) hard reset - hold on/off button while resetting on back. Keep on/off button held in until Palm Powered screen appears. After that all programs are erased and you have to start over. However, I cannot figure out how to fix the data storage space problem.

Hard reset

1 Hold down the power (on/off) button on your device. 2 While holding down the power button, turn over your device so that you can see the back of it. Still holding the power button, use an unfolded paper clip or a similar small object, to gently press the RESET hole on the back. 3 When the Palm Computing Platform or Palm Powered logo appears, release the power button. 4 A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld.
