Question about Palm m125 Handheld

1 Answer

Touchscreen application buttons

When I do a hard reset, everything works fine.
After I sync it, the calibration is off, and the 4 buttons on the touchscreen no longer work. The rest of the touchscreen is fine. I can write on it, I can go to any of the manual button functions. The stylus is off a few degrees, but it does work.
I can't figure out a way to get to the applications menu to see if I can recalibrate to get it to work properly.
I'm not sure what it is I'm syncing that's causing this error or how to troubleshoot to fix it. Suggestions welcome.

    I synced some application from the internet (getjar) then soon after, the lower buttons on my Palm m125 handheld would not work. The light won't come on when you long-press the power button. and it wouldnt power-off.

Touch screen not working / not registering touch


Follow the steps mentioned below until your problem is sorted.
1. Restart Your Android Device It works 80% of the time. Screen locking/managing applications often make touchscreen unresponsive. In that case you need to restart your Android device. How can I reboot my tablet, the touchscreen is not working.. Good question!
  • Grab your Android tablet/phone
  • Press and hold the Power Button for 10 seconds or until the screen goes blank.
  • Wait a minute or two and then power on your device normally using the same button.
2. Eject Memory Card and Sim Shutdown your Android device and remove the Memory card and Sim(s) attached to it. Also, remove the battery for few seconds if possible.
3. Remove Any Cases Smart cases are good in protecting your device from scratches and damage. But their automatic screen wake/sleep feature sometime cause the device to malfunction. Remove the case, perform a restart.
4. Hard Reset your Android For advanced users. If everything else doesn't work, try doing a hard reset on your phone. This will wipe your phone/tablet and return it to its original condition. This usually involves holding down Volume-Up and Volume-Down button together and then pressing Power Button (every phone has different method). It starts your device in Recovery mode, you can do a Wipe-Factory-Reset from there. Use volume up/down buttons to navigate and press Power button to select. Be careful and don't mess with other options or you may brick your phone.
5. Knocking the Touchscreen (Not recommended) Remove the Screen Protector on your Android device if present. Now, gently knock every corner of your touchscreen to realign it. Sometimes continuous phone drops cause screen digitizer cable to loses its connection to device motherboard however, its a rare case.
If you are still unable to make touchscreen work maybe its time to claim warranty, Its a lengthy process but works. Also, post comments below to share other tips not mentioned in this article.

My TREO 600 touch screen stopped working. It displays perfectly, but the touch function no longer works. The phone is fully charged.


Go to applications - preferences - touchscreen. Follow the instructions to calibrate your touchscreen. If it does not work, reset your phone by pressing the small button at the small hole at the back of the phone with a safety pin.

Calibration gets stuck in a loop


Hello.

Do a soft or hard reset (pin in back of PDA; pin in back of PDA and front silver button simultaneously).

If not, what worked for me is to take the PDA apart, if you are comfortable. There are 4 screws in the back. Remove them. With a knife, flathead screwdriver or other flat object, pry open the back. A few plastic pieces may fall out, tho. Note where they connect. Disconnect and then reconnect the power adapter. Put the plastic pieces and the back of the PDA together. The back should snap in place. Insert the 4 screws. Should work OK, again. Use this method if the adapter is not charging very well and the soft / hard reset doesn't work. I've had to perform this many times. Good luck.

Screen problem


Sometimes 3rd party apps that don't work so well with the palms can freeze them up.

You could do a hard reset and when you initially sync the palm, when it asks you for a profile choose a new one and see if this method removes your problem.

Does the calibrator keep looping or not seem to work?
If you can access the calibrator, but it loops through the target sequence (repeatedly asking you to tap the targets), there may be a physical problem that's causing your touchscreen to be confused:
  • Do you use an adhesive screen protector? A screen protector which is trapped under the screen edge may interfere with touchscreen calibration. Occasionally, just having the screen protector on the screen can cause the issue. Try removing the screen protector.
  • You may have debris trapped under the edge of the screen. Use the corner of a piece of thin, stiff paper (copier paper works well) to very gently slide all around the edge of the screen. Don't let the corner of the paper travel more than an eighth of an inch under the screen edge frame. By doing this, you may be able to dislodge small particles of debris trapped under the frame.
  • A heavy impact or scrape to the touchscreen can cause permanent damage. If your touchscreen is damaged, you may need a repair

Make sure that the on switch on the bottom is on(this is the switch you need a pen to move, not the reset button, but an actual switch that doesn't have a spring if you know what i mean). This confused someone I know with this model, that it has two on switches!

Now we'll try to resetting procedure:

1) I believe you switch the unit OFF with that switch on the botton (the one that needs the pen).
2) Now hold the power button on the top with your finger, and switch that switch on the bottom back to ON while keeping your finger held down on that button.
3) Something roughly called the Aragorn Boot Loader will appear and will count down from 5.
4) Release your finger off the power button on the top before it reaches 0 or you will have to start again.

This should have performed a hard reset, and you should be asked to calibrate the touchscreen.

If this does not work or you cannot even get the arragorn boot loader screen then that might suggest a hardware issue of the battery only being connected to the charging circuit and not the device own circuitry.
