There's apparently no known software solution to the dead screen problem. However one can bypass the screen setup step by doing a warm reset. See:

Dear Daunzee

Looking at this problem for how yo have described it, i would suggest to look carefully at the battery and ask yourself how old the entire unit is. It could be likely that the battery (even when fully charged) is not puting out enough power in order for the touch screen facility to work. If you have not already done so, then I reckon to give the phone a good charge and try again on a full battery, if this is still a no hoper, then your two choices are as follows.

1.Replace the battery with a brand spanking new one

2. Query, or at least consider the possibility of a fault with the touch screen itself.

Now should there be a fault with the touch screen itself, then rather try to repair the screen itself, it may just be a whole lot easier to find a replacement unit elsewhere and either fit it or have it fitted by someone in the know.

If you do decide to fit the replacement screen yorself, you will need to acquire some specialist tools, and MAPLINS (united kingdom company) will provide you the tools for about twenty quid (security bit set in a red box, and a ratchet screwdriver with bits), and you can go on the internet to find a nearest store by entering your postcode in the search for store location. Finding the screen is easy enough, either go to a mobile phone outlet that trades from the internet, or go to ebay, and you are sure to get a replacement unit from there. by going to http://www.google.com you will be able to get the disassembly guide for your product and by following the instructions, you will be able to do the job yourself and save a few quid.

Anyway, I can give you more helpful information, but i will need more in depth information relating to your problem, so anything else that you can accurately describe will be of massive benefit. Until then i hope that this is the best fixya for you, and wish you all of the best luck infixing your product,

kind regards and yours sincerely

Oz

How do you fix a touch screen that does not respond? I have done a complete reset and still nothing. Thanks.


Have you already performed a clean reset? You might know that it will restore your device to its factory settings, thus deleting everything you have installed, as well as your personal data and settings. So, it is strongly recommended to backup your data beforehand.
Anyway, to perform a clean reset, press and hold the Calendar, Power, and Messaging buttons, and, whilst keeping them pressed, press and hold the reset pin with the stylus pen. When your device restarts, release the buttons and the stylus pen from the reset pin.
Hope it works for you.
Cheers! Carlos

Touch screen on Palm Z22 does not respond


The Data on your Z22 is rock-solid safe, but unlike the answer that states to do a RESET- DO NOT ! The touch screen problem has nothing to do with resetting, it is a failure of the soft plastic top layer of the touch screen. There is a tiny, remote possibility that the logic circuits are out of sync and the touchscreen really is mixed up in a software state, and a SOFT RESET may reset the touch screen, but this is almost unheard of ( but does happen).
I have an entire page on the Z22 and how to maintain, repair and interface it. It is at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

I would suggest trying a few tricks listed on my web page, and see if you can get the screen to work again. It is IMPERATIVE to get a hard plastic cover over the screen to keep it working!

Please read over the information on the Z22 page.

good luck

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 does not work at all


My touchscreen was acting batty, not responding where I was touching. The solution for me was to:
1. remove my screen protector
2. Take a piece of paper, fold it in half, and scoop under the lip the case where it holds the touchscreen in to fish out debris that were distorting how the digitizer recorded.

Touch screen


You may have dust accumulation around the edges of your touchscreen, between the screen and the case. Try using a can of compressed air. Gently press down on the edges of the touchscreen to expose the gap between the screen and the case, and shoot the air in there. This worked for me when my Treo 600 touchscreen stopped responding.
