Palm m505 problem after hard reset

Hi, My m505 was not responding accurately to the stylus. I needed to touch the stylus about an inch below where I wanted it to register. I've had this problem before, but the distance of this mis-register was close enough that I could re-calibrate by touching the stylus on the marks on screen. This time, because I had to tap an inch or more below where I wanted to tap, I couldn't get to the screen to re-calibrate. I tried soft resets. No change. I tried several hard resets and it cleared the memory, but the very first screen asks to tap the stylus on a mark top left of screen, but when I tap there, there is no response. I had let the battery get down to warning me of low battery (just cos I hadn't recharged it for a while). Is there a solution?

Many thanks in advance for your help.
Kind regards,
Glen

    I left my problem here for a month without response. Solution.... Bought an m515 on ebay. Bargain price, excellent condition. Job done.

Ouch... Try opening it up and run a business card between the digitizer and the screen. Fixes m500s and m100s.

Screen not responding following extended period of storage...


The digitizer is very thin and paired with the screen. Sometimes they can get so pressed together with time and storage that can cause it to fail. Some people believe that you can put a spacer in there to separate them and try to "unstick it". This involves taking your screen apart and it might not even fix your issue. I would look on eBay or other sources for a replacement screen and just replace the whole thing personally.

Touch screen would not respond


HI,
Here is a link to get you to the Palm support page. You can do a phone call to the but it will cost you $25. There is also a chat feature and that looks like it is free so hopefully that will help.
Best wishes.

Does not respond to stylus


Try recalibrating the touch screen. Devices with touch screens need to be recalibrated in order to respond properly. The greater the use, the more often recalibration is necessary. I recalibrate my phone once a week. I hope this helps.

Try running a piece of paper around the edge of the screen. There may be was something stuck in there, pressing the screen slightly and causing it to not respond to the stylus4.gif.

Touchscreen does not respond to touch


This is straight from Palm Support...
1.Press and hold the UP button on the front panel of your device.

2.While holding the UP button, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus, to gently press the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device


3.The Palm Computing Platform screen will appear. Release the UP button when you see it.

Touch screen


Haha I love the Centro. You need to perform a system reset to the phone the directions are in your manual. Basically, the touch screen is screwed and by reseting it and following the prompts that should resolve your issue. You don't lose any information either so you have nothing to lose.

Palm m505 Won't Start Up


I have an M505 with the same problem. After taking off the back cover, I found a defective (short circuit) SOT23 device nearly centered just below the expansion card slot. The markings are A5RGC, but I have been unable to verify whether this may be a programmable UJT (BRY61), a transistor or a diode. Does anyone have a schematic diagram, or kno where to get one?
