Question about Palm Z22 Handheld

1 Answer

Lights on, nobody home

My Z22 failed to respond to the screen yesterday, then it wouldn't turn off. I pushed in the reset button, it looked it was going to be OK, then it still wouldn't respond to the stylus. I changed views with the keys a couple of times, but that quit working. When I plugged it in to recharge, hoping it would just be a recharge that it needed, it beeped and turned off. After 2 hours I repeated the attempt to get a response, but it still does'nt respond. My husband says I've bashed it to death by carrying it in my bag rather than in a pocket. Is he right?

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

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:
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

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.

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.
