Just had to do a hard reset myself and it's not straight forward! While holding down the power button, BRIEFLY press the reset button on the back of the palm. DO NOT RELEASE the POWER button until you see the GRAY screen with the Palm logo (not the first screen with the palm logo). That should start the hard reset for you.

Your problem might be a simple one. Hopefully so:

Run a business card around the edges of the screen between the screen and the plastic housing to see if there is any trapped dirt or other debri. If there is, it will hold down that point of the screen and prevent any further input. Be sure to remove anything you find.

Also, sometimes the screen protectors themselves will shift just enough to cause the same issue. Be sure it is not wedged tightly between the screen and case.

I hope this is it and helps!

SOURCE: how to do a hard reset on a palm z22?

Hi here are the steps but ensure to backup data before you make a hard reset
Press and hold the power button
While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus (or a similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole on the back of your handheld.
Wait for the Palm Powered™logo to appear, and then release the power button.
When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your handheld, do one of the following:• Press Up on the 5-way navigator to finish the reset and show the touchscreen.• Press any other button to do a soft reset.
When prompted, tap to align the screen, and then select the language you want to use on your handheld. A screen appears showing the Palm logo and a progress bar.
When the Welcome screenappears, the hard reset iscomplete
Hope this helps and do let me know

Palm z22 touch screen not responding touchscreen


The Z22 palm PDA is subjected to 3 points of failure. I got a used Z22 and discovered all 3 over the course of a few years. The touchscreen digitizer on the front is a plastic sheet on the top, and a glass screen on the bottom. Invisible layers of conductive paint are facing each other. Simply carrying the Z22 in your pocket, purse, briefcase, or even storing it in a drawer with pencils, staplers, rulers, etc., will, over time, deform the screen, and the damage is cumulative, so that the screen gets worse and worse. It is imperative to have a solid sheet of plastic or hard material over the screen at all times that you are not using it. Leaving the Z22 in direct hot sunlight will heat up and soften the screen, making the problem worse. Carrying the Z22 screen in your pocket on a hot day when you are sweating, will do the same. People report that the Z22 will work in a cool place like North New York, but the screen will quit, when they travel to Florida (hot). I have temporarily fixed the touchscreen by putting it in a ziplock, and sticking it in the freezer to shrink the top layer of plastic. That only worked twice. Then I use a hair dryer to heat the screen VERY hot, to shrink the screen - which worked very well, until I put it in a soft zippered camera case, which gently pushed the screen. Then I took the screen apart completely ( which no one has ever reported doing) and this worked amazingly well, -again- until I put it in a soft case that pushed the screen against the glass backing. I eventually replaced the touchscreen ($10 free shipping from China). All the information is on my tiny website at

http://kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

The Z22 is incredibly well designed, and after ripping it apart a dozen times, and carrying it around under extreme heat and freezing cold, I would have to give the original design team at PALM, 5 stars. Your data, on the device, even though the screen may be dead, is very safe, and unless you do a HARD RESET, the data is stored on permanent memory. I had problems with a weak and dying battery, which ALL Z22s are now experiencing, since the decades of time, even with a "new" in the box, sealed Z22 will have. Low glitches of power on the battery seem to cause the BlackScreen of Death, where the LOGIC circuits that control the ON/OFF/SLEEP etc. functions get out of sync, and the unit will not charge or turn on until ALL power is removed ( typically, after a few weeks the battery drains to dead ).

All these problems are discussed and solutions posted, with photos on my website. Also are discussions on what to do with the Z22, where to get parts, how to maintain the Z22, and how to get data off the device onto the new 64 bit WINDOWS computers...

Good luck. The Z22 was an amazing device in its day, and people report that there were a few software programs for it that have never been made since - hence, they still use it...

Palm z22-Touchscreen wont work


The Palm Z22 is a very solidly designed device to reliably store your personal data, however, it is subject to 3 failure mechanisms, all related to its AGE of over a decade of use. The batteries are all dying - even in an UNOPENED, sealed, "AS-NEW" package, the battery is almost dead. The TOUCH SCREEN is a delicate stretched layer of plastic on top of a layer of glass. The top layer bends down a touches the glass layer, and invisible layers of "wiring", electro-deposited on the layers, touch each other. Over time, with air-pressure changes, heat and cold, and mostly objects pressing on the screen (such as carrying it in a pocket, purse, briefcase, or even leaving it in a drawer with pencils, paper, pens, staplers, etc.) , the top plastic layer deforms and touches the bottom layer, which renders the touch screen dead.
My page on the Z22 is at :
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
and has tips and tricks on temporarily getting your screen working, as well as how to replace it yourself - $9 U.S. free shipping from China.
I hope that this helps you get your Z22 up and running again, and helps you to keep it functioning.

good luck

Hi, I also had the same problem exactly the way you described it. What worked for me is putting in the original installation cd that came with the palm. Run the installation and I think the computer will recognize the palm and stay connected. Hope it works.

Palm Z22 won't sync, USB Device Not Recognized


The Z22 is very well designed to PROTECT your stored data - do NOT do a RESET, since this has nothing to do with your problem! It sounds like your USB cable is damaged- a very common problem, usually one of the 4 or 5 wires near one end of the cable or the other, breaks inside the plastic covering, and you loose connectivity. The "OLD" Style USB end that plugs into the Z22 is getting difficult to find, since it has been replaced with the smaller "MICRO" version, available everywhere (As of 2014 ! ) It is available online very inexpensively.
I have a full page of information on the Z22, and how to repair, take-apart, maintain, and connect it. It is at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html
I hope that this information helps you to get your
Z22 up and running again.

good luck

Z22 PALM WON'T TURN OFF.


Some 3rd party software is nasty to palm devices. Try uninstalling the software from the PDA and a soft reset. Then try turning it on.
