Hello, since a while my screen does not respond in the top left corner and when I draw on Note, lines are shifted around this corner. I didn't try the hard reset yet thinking that maybe there will be a possible solution. Maybe a software problem : when I calibrate, it accepts the top left target. However, this target is upper the insensitive zone. can you help ? Regards David

Re: screen corner insensitivity
Screen drift is a common problem on Palms and there are many forums about it. First, make sure it is not your screen protector. This is a common culprit. Also, make sure ther is no dirt between the screen edges and the case. Running a folded piece of paper in between can clean it. I worked on a friends Palm with this problem and the solution was third party software called PowerDigi. Here is the link: http://www.palmpowerups.com/readarticle.php?article_id=5
Unfortunately, this software is not free.

Really?? Mine is loud as hell I heard it ringing in my coat across the room
I think there is a way to change the volume but the button on mine doesn't seem to respond to touch When you first turn on ur screen there should be a lil bell in the top left corner Ive gotten it to work once It turned my phone silent but other than that it doesnt respond Ive tried using it while the keyboard was out to get it to switch sides but still no good You can try playing with that otherwise we'll all just have to make that long trip to profiles just to turn our phone volume up and down
I have the same problem and discovered that the right side of the screen had "spread". When I draw a line from the left to the right using Note Pad, the line ends up about 1/4 inch above the stylus.
What I had to do is touch the stylus about 1/8th of an inch above the center of the digitizer target on the right side.
I had this problem, and fixed it. That's the good news.
The bad news is that it involved taking the unit to pieces, and thoroughly cleaning the edges of the screen, and the inside of the case where it sits.
Something had got trapped, which was throwing the tap out at the right hand side.
My XDA II has developed exactly the same problem and I think I have descovered what the problem is...
My XDA as a very small gap between the screen and the plastic case, I noticed that a piece of grit gad got in there and I used the corner of a piece of paper to try to remove the particle. I was unsuccessful and only managed to move the piece of grit up to the top right hab corner of the screen. Imediatly after this I started having trouble. I have now found if I push the plastic case into closer proximity to the screen I starts to work again.
Please try this and see how you get on. It may be that I have to have my screen replaced!! Or at the very least the dust etc cleaned out from around the screen.
Have you run the digitizer app, which is located in Preferences, and
recalibrates the digitizer?
If it is not the digitizer problem , it may be the stylus you are using.. read this:
By the way, about Palm's "repair service", take a look below:
I can sympathize with you. Six months after I bought a Palm Zire 71 I had exactly the same problem, it would not respond to the stylus. I sent it in for repair (fortunately I got someone in India who spoke fairly good English). They set it back after a week or so and a month later I had exactly the same problem again. (They did return my original unit.) Again I had to send it in and they sent me a replacement that works so far. I had a previous experience with Palm's "repair service" where they again did a repair that only lasted a few weeks.
