You may have to take apart the palm to get it open and make sure its not wet, windex works on lcd screens, not on lcd touchscreen, where the top part is plastic or something to that direction. Just drying up the palm might solve the problem, you migh need to use a heat gun or put the whole thing (taken apart) into a airtight container and fill it with rise, and leave it for a day or two, this will absorb the muisture and any water that remains.
if the problem remains after that follow my instructions that I've posted earlier:
First things to try is a normal reset and then a hard reset.

To do a normal reset, press on the reset button on your handheld.

Hard reset is performed differently on different models, check palm website for hard reset instructions:CLICK HERE FOR PALM RESET INFO PAGE

if the touchscreen doesn't work at all, and you can't align or calibrate it, or it presses on wrong spots even after calibrating many times, digitizer (which is the touch part on top of the lcd display) is most likely broken and would need to be replaced. On rare cases reattaching digitizer cable and making sure that the digitizer is clean and intact and properly on its position may solve the issue.

you have 3 options.

  1. Replace digitizer yourself, you can find a replacement from ebay.
  2. Send it to palm for out of warranty repairs, probably around 100usd.
  3. Take it to a local professional who can replace digitizer for you.

Note: In some phones the digitizer may be connected into the lcd in away that it can't be easily replaced. In these cases You will have to replace the whole screen. if the touch is non responsive after the replacement, the issue could be with the connector or then you have a faulty main board.

I did something wrong.....


Windex is not the best cleaner. Bed and Bath Beyond has a very good NON-Streak class cleaner that I tell my customers to use. The best solution is NOT to Spray directly onto the TV Screen. Remember the glass is only delivering the picture from an RGB projection unit sitting inside the enclosure. It is not the electronic projector and the screen is separate. It can be replaced if damaged; however I believe it is only streaked and needs proper cleansing. If you get the new cleaner, spray the solution onto a soft cloth and wipe the exterior screen. Promptly wipe it dry and if you need to do this a few times, eventually you will get the glass clear and enjoy the show.

Cleaning the scaner window.


Since it is glass, you should be able to use a mild cleaner like eyeglass cleaner. Also, glass cleaner like Windex should should, but you should remember to spray the cloth and then wipe, not to spray the scanner as the moisture could mess with the electronics.

My nephew spray windex on my dlp tv and not is in between both screens n it black but you can move the water still with your fingers


Well I'll say this. There has been no damage done yet. The problem is that the windex has wicked up in between the Lenticular screen and the Fresnel lens screen. If you attempt to seperate both screens yourself then I can guarentee you will damage both screens.
Not cheap to replace both screens. The screens CAN be cleaned with a screen cleaner from Screen Clean but the real problem is finding a Highly qualified technician who has done this many times before. The Fresnel lens screen is EXTREMELY soft and has tiny ridges that damage very very easily and you will see permenant black streaks in the picture. Never use Windex,Amonia or 409 and the like cleaners on the screens. When you use a screen cleaner, spray the cleaner on a MICRO cloth (Very Soft) then carefully clean the scree. Like I said, the screens can be cleaned safely only by a Highly skilled technician. The black spots from the windex will not eventually go away. Contact the tv manufacture as they can direct to a authorized service center they trust.

GPS touch screen sprayed with Windex; doesn't work.


After reading sharcnet's reply yesterday that putting the unit in the freezer was absolutely the wrong solution, I was very panicked! However, once the unit thawed out it worked fine. We tried the freezer because we've used that tip before to "freeze-dry" cell phones that got wet. Luckily the LCD was not damaged & everything is working fine now. And my husband knows not to spray Windex on any electronic screen!

Moisture behind screen


It is difficult to clean/remove the screens. Best case senario, it will dry up leaving little to no water mark. There are three screens, liquid gets between them and it sucks it in. Disassembly and cleaning will fix, but the screens are very fragile and cannot be wiped without potential damage. Any dust, dirt between them will show in the picture. Proceed at your own risk.
