    Thanks! I tried everything including a hard reset and the screen is still light gray and blank. I can hear all of the noises, but can see not a thing.

Hello LyMaBa

Do you have an SD card inserted in the PDA?

If so remove it and restart your PDA.

Did the problem go away. If so, please, go HERE for the Zire 71 Expansion update or HERE for the SD/SDIO update.

You can find all the manuals for the Palm Zire 71 PDA HERE.

If you don't have a SD card inserted, you might want to try performing a WARM RESET of your PDA. Youtube has a video on this process HERE.

You can find instructions HERE for performing a reset ("warm" or "hard") on your Palm PDA.

You can find other software, info, downloads, etc.
HERE for your Zire 71.

If performing a "warm" reset doesn't work, try performing a "hard" reset.

*** WARNING!!! ***
YOU WILL loose ALL of your data on the PDA by performing a "hard" reset so make sure it's data has been synchronized w/ your computer software (Palm Desktop, Microsoft Outlook, etc).

Blank screen with lines


The main logic board is bad. Probably an intermittent connection between the MLB and display interface, or the BGA chip needs to be reheated. Try banging it on the table, or twisting/torquing it. Loosening the screws can help sometimes, or just taking it apart and reseating all the connections does the trick.

You need to open your PDA and check for a false contact between the connectors of the LCD screen and the main board.

Other cause may be that the LCD screen flat ribbon cable is defective.

Either problem requires to open the PDA to check it.

If you have experience in opening electronic devices then you can try it. Otherwise, I do recommend you to have a experienced technician in checking your PDA.

PDA displays only a white Screen


I recently replace my lcd and initially had that problem.  I fixed it by reseating the cable that connects the motherboard to the main phone piece.  (its the cable that is about 1/2 an inch wide and is very short, barely wraps around motherboard).  Reseat that and your white screen issue should be fixed)

PDA intermitently powers up then freezes on "Palm Powered" screen


I had the same issue. What you need to do is to hold the power on/off button than press the reset button. The screen turns off (get black) than the will ask you to make a hard reset (which end up deleting all datas). The Palm will power on like the first time you turned it on after you bought it. Than depending which version you have it will possible ask you which language you will like to have as default. After selecting you neet to setup the rest. If this is done you sync it all data will come back :-)

Dropped PDA


First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.

Screen problem with my Cassiopeia E-100


Well, there is good news and bad news.... The good news is that your digitizer is working okay...the bad news is that you lcd isn't. This is due to three possibilities... 1. The video controller on the motherboard is bad...unlikely 2. The ribbon cables or connectors that attaches the lcd to the motherboard is bad...possible but unlikely 3. The lcd itself is shot or damaged...seen it more than once. The only way to really tell is to find someone else with another unit and just start swapping out pieces until you can rule out the trouble. Or in the interim, it is possible that the cable just jarred loose a little or has become dirty, preventing full contact. Simply disassemble the thing, clean the contacts, and put it back together...not hard to do, but not for the feint of heart either. Good luck, hope you get it fixed. p.s. Don't be afraid to take it apart...what can you loose, just be very careful to document each step if you haven't done it before. I've done it a couple of dozen times on various Casio E-1XX machines and never had any problems yet....
