    Hi! I have the same problem, in russian forum one guy have solved this by restoring from backup. My back-up has not help. Need a solution!

    Zire 72 camera does not work. When click on button or use stylus on screen the screen goes blank (white) and stays that way. A reset in the back of the Z72 is the only thing that brings it back. As far as I can tell everything else works fine. This seems to be the result of replacing the battery. Is there anything inside the the unit that may need to be fixed (hardware) or is this a software issue?

    Hi guys, I have the same problem. Whenever I would attempt to use my zire 72 camera to take photos/videos, it just freezes/hangs. A reset would allow me to use the device again except when opening camera.



    Can this be solved in some sort of a new setting or it has to be opened by a technician?



    Thanks!!!

I changed the battery in my PDA recently and encountered the same problem. The fix for me was in the camera circuit board cable, the one at the top. For some reason, there is no actual plug for cable to go in, so I thought it just rested as is. The cable must actuly be pulled gently back towards the top of the PDA and then aligned with the contact pins from the circuit board. Again, it doesn't actually plug in to anything, but just rests against the pin connector. Be careful reassembling, because the ribbon cable can pop out of place easily (it essentially becomes "spring loaded" when put in place). Hope this works for you.

My PalmOne Zire 72S battery won't charge. How do I


I can't get the back off my 72s to replace the battery, any instructions would be appreciated. One source says there is a third screw in the wire mesh but I only found the 2 lower ones. Also, I can't find the Media Icon anywhere, therefore I can't use the camera or download pics. I even reloaded the software to no avail.

How to insert a sim card into my Palm Zire 72


No sim card in the Zire 72. On-board memory on the motherboard only to store records not directed to or on expansion memory card.
Zire 72 battery changeout not designed to be user serviceable. Undertake at your peril (unless you are very steady handed, patient, and very very careful). The 72 is probably the most difficult of the Palms to change batteries. Go to: http://forum.brighthand.com
Navigate to the Zire 72 section and read the posts. There are even detailed photos and uTube movies that deal with changing the battery. I have used their forum for years. Lots of help there.

My Palm Zire 72 tumbled into two inches of water.


It seems that unfortunately you PDA is damaged and needs professional repair service, or just forget about it and buy another one.

Water causes to have corrosion and shorts in electronic devices, even if is dried internally (residues cause the shorts), which is an quemical effect of have water (or moisture) with copper and other metals and a voltage from the battery.

If anyway is already damaged, you may want to try in repair it yourself.

If so, you will need to open it, and remove all residues (kind of green or white dust over the components) from the copper traces, connectors and components.

If the event is recent, there is the chance you can clean it completely, but I do see that this happened a couple of months ago.

If several weeks (or months) passed, then a deep corrosion already took place in it, and is likely that the components and connections have been permanently damaged.

In order to open and repair, you will need:

1. Torx scredriver and philips screwdriver
2. Plastic pry tool to open it without leave marks or damage the PDA housing
3. 5X magnifier with light, or better if you can use a microscope, so you can review all the areas (including under the tiny electronic components) and clean them.

If you send it to repair, it will be expensive, and it may be over the cost of buy an used PDA but in good working conditions.

I mean, depending of the damage caused by the water, it may be necessary to replace one or all the major components inside the PDA (mainboard, LCD screen, speaker, camera, battery, etc).

Best regards,

You have a bad connection, or no connection to the digitizer. This is common when changing out batteries. Re-open the case and check the connector to the digitizer.

Zire 72 and Outlook 2003 - I think I've tried it all! Doesn't work....


you don't need pocketmirror for zire 72 because palm desktop have outlook conduits to handle outlook synching. inorder for you to sync using outlook you must have the outlook conduits installed which seems you have it already installed. you have to disable some older conduits inorder to avoid conflicts with the conduits. to do these follow these steps: 1. right click on the hotsync manager icon on your system tray 2. click on Custom... 3. select Date Book (Outlook) 4. click on Change... 5. select Do Nothing and set it to default 6. click Ok 7. repeats steps 3-6 for Address Book (Outlook), To Do List (Outlook) and Memo Pad (Outlook)
