Question about Palm Z22 Handheld

1 Answer

Won't turn on

My Palm Z22 will not turn on. I use it a lot so I would know if the battery needed recharged. It gave me no warning of needing recharged. I did try to charge it but it is not showing any difference. I had it charging for at least an hour. Any thoughts? It has never done this before.

Thanks

    I use my Z22 a lot, but lately just when I need it most, to make note of an appointment, the Palm won't turn on.Then it will only work if I do a soft reset I'm recharging it every one or two days now so battery should be OK. Is it possible to install a new battery or do I just buy a new Palm?

The battery must be toast. Look on eBay to get a replacement.

I have an entire web page covering many issues with the Palm Z22, and data connectivity is one of them. The ANSWER above of the CompanionLink software is one which I had not seen until now, and I will add it to all the resources listed on my page...

Other solutions include the software from ACEECA, the PALM Z22 connection software from Hewlett Packard, in conjunction with the Virtual Windows XP software, with technical notes from USERS, all listed on my web page...

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

Hopefully, once you read over all the data, you will get all the data to- and from- your Palm Z22...

As well, tips and suggestions are included on the Battery problems, the touch screen issues, and other quirks with the Z22 as it ages!

hope this helps...

good luck

Lost my Cd to my palm z22. Does any one know were I can download the porgram for my palm. So I can put info on my computer. :)


behoney56:

The information support page for the Palm Z22 has moved around over the past few years. It is now at

http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/na/zire/z22/unlocked/home/page_en.html

As well, I have an entire web page devoted just to maintaining, repairing, and using the Palm Z22, at:

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.htm

As the Palm Z22 ages, there are issues with old and dying batteries, with the touch screen deforming and becoming useless, and various DATA connectivity issues, since the new Windows 64 BIT Operating Systems did not yet exist when the Z22 was diss-continued.

On my web page are links and USER information on the various solutions that they found, as well as a bit of information that I discovered, which is hitherto unknown!

Hope these tid-bits of help get your Palm Z22 up and running properly...

good luck

I have a Palm z22 that won't keep a charge. My


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

My z22 Palm will not keep a charge and after a day


The battery needs to be replaced. They are sold on Ebay but if you need to do any kind of soldering then the best bet is to take it in and have it done by an authorized repair. It is worth the little extra you will pay.

Best wishes.

How to Replace the Battery on a Palm Z22

The Palm Z22 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which, in theory, can be recharged an infinite number of times. In practice, however, the lifespan of a rechargeable battery is finite. Replacing the battery yourself is possible if you have some skill with tools and a bit of patience.

Instructions
Difficulty: Moderate
Things You’ll Need:

* Star-bit screwdriver
* New z22 battery
* Palm z22

What to Do
Step1
Pull down on the back cover of your Palm Z22, and remove the cover from the device.there is a trick to it. The little translucent bezel surrounding the USB connector can be snapped out, revealing two T-5 (Torx) screws. Remove the bezel and the two screws and the other three sides will separate with some gentle prying as you have already discovered.

The best way to remove the bezel seems to be to slip a knife (or a thin fingernail) into the joint closest to the display. It's a tight fit but you don't have to separate it very far to get it to pop out.

The battery is not "user replaceable" - i.e. it is soldered in place, but you can buy one online if you're prepared to do the solder work.

Step2
Loosen and remove the screws from the Z22's casing using a star-bit screwdriver.
Step3
If there are tabs present on the circuit board, you will need to stop immediately. Consult with a technician about removing the tabs.
Step4
Find the battery. Move it out of the case so you can have better access to the power supply lead.
Step5
Pull the power supply lead from the battery. Grasp the base of the plug firmly and disconnect in one smooth motion.
Step6
Remove the old battery from the case and insert the new battery into the same position and with the same orientation.
Step7
Replace the rear cover on the Z22 and charge the new battery for at least four hours before use.
Tips & Warnings

* Use firm steady pressure to open the case. Sharp blows and delicate electronics do not mix.
* A star-bit screwdriver is not the same as a Phillips screwdriver. The star-bit has a six-flanged head which looks a little like an asterisk when viewed head-on.
* If your battery has a blue casing on it, do not attempt to change the battery.

How to Buy a Replacement Battery for a Palm Z22

The Palm Z22 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This means that you can use it forever, right? Well, no, because even rechargeable batteries wear out eventually. Since Palm currently does not offer replacement batteries, you will have to track one down yourself. Here is how to buy a replacement battery for a Palm Z22.

Instructions
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You’ll Need:

* Palm Z22

Step1
Write down the technical specifications of the Palm Z22 battery. The battery is 3.7 volts and delivers 950 mAH.
Step2
Shop at your favorite local retailer, electronics store or battery specialty store. Take advantage of the sales staff’s knowledge in your hunt for a battery that is compatible with the Z22. Bring your Palm Z22 to the store to be sure that the battery fits.
Step3
Search for an online retailer who carries the Z22 replacement battery. Once you have found a couple of vendors that have the goods, shop for the best deal. Remember to include shipping costs into your decision.
Step4
Get information about return policies or money-back guarantees before shelling out any money. Returns may not be an option for the Z22 replacement battery due to the specific complications involved with lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
Tips & Warnings

* You will need a tool kit to change your battery. The screws on a Palm Z22 require a star-bit screwdriver to loosen the shell.
* Correct use of your battery charger will prolong the life of your batteries, whether the original issue or replacement.
* Be sure that your batter is compatible. You don’t want to fry the Z22 with a high-powered, incompatible battery.

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
