    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.

    Oh forgot to mention that I do not have a memory card.

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).

Hard reset. Hold the power button as you reset. Be careful, because it will erase everything on the pda.

If formatting your phone doesnt help there are three possible problems in order of priority (1) your screen is gone and needs replaced (2) your ribbon cable is gone and needs replaced (3) phone needs flashed, I have repaired the first two above on many samsungs with this fault! Not an easy job! Hope this helps.

Monitor is blank when we turn the computer on.


Maybe not. Find the FN key. It is usually BLUE in color
Then look on TOP row of Computer keyb (or all over) and find CRT/LCD.
Press the FN and that key and your screen should come back. You accidentally sw. it to CRT (outside, external monitor)

Laptop shows blank screen


It appears that the display has gone out in the computer. Sorry to say but you have two options. 
1. You can take the computer to a computer repair shop and get a new motherboard put in.
2. You can go buy a new computer. 
They both will cost about the same but it is more worth it to buy a new computer in my opinion. The reason i say this is originally i was thinkning that the LCD monitor in the laptop may have gone out but if it is not showing anything on an external monitor than the computer is not putting out any display at all.

Gray LCD Screen


http://www.sony.ca/sonyca/view/english/warranty/productalert2.shtml
When the product is used in camera mode, the liquid crystal display (LCD) panel and/or electronic viewfinder displays either a distorted image or no image at all.

Sony Corporation has determined that this condition occurs very rarely, but may be accelerated if an affected product is exposed to high temperature and/or high humidity environments.

In an effort to ensure customer satisfaction, Sony of Canada Ltd. has elected to offer, effective October 3, 2005, free out-of-warranty repair to owners of affected Sony digital camera, camcorder and PDA products that exhibit the aforementioned condition caused by the image sensor device. See below for a list of affected models:

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.
