Question about Palm m105 Handheld

Open Question

My palm m105's touch screen doesn't work properly after a sync. I dug out my old m105, put new batteries in and start it. On first launch it auto runs the alignment tool, and after touching all the points it goes to the main screen and works fine. No problem till here. Now, I plug it into my old computer which still has the palm software with my apps, and I run the sync operation (from the palm device sync manager, cause I lost my cradle and I'm connected via the serial cable), and it syncs fine BUT, here comes the problem, when it finishes the sync (successfully) the touch screen is all misaligned. I can't go back to the home screen or do anything useful. Thanks!

How can I transfer the data from Z222 to window7


Hello de nicola:

I have an entire page devoted just to the Palm Z22, listed below.

Many people report issues with trying to connect the Palm Z22 to new 64 BIT Operating systems like Windows 7 and Windows 8, and although somewhat obscure and time-consuming to set up, this can be done. ONE known software company has a 64 BIT driver, which, when used with other software, can get the SYNC functions working again. Another method is to put a VIRTUAL Windows XP on the Windows 64 BIT Systems, and then SYNC using the already working WIndows XP to get the data from files on the "new" 64 Bit Systems, and back...

I also deal with battery problems, touch screen problems, maintenance, repair, and upkeep issues, so that you may find the page of value! It is at:

I hope this gets your Palm Z22 up and running again, and keeps it that way...

good luck

HI, I just bought a palm m105, refurbished, through Ebay. I've had problems with it spontaneously erasing it's memory, so I want to back it up on my computer. I got a sync base with it and am able to plug...


I found the desktop program for this at free downloads,its called Desktop Manager and it will add a hot sync for you. Make sure you chose the right model. Good luck.

My Centro started hot syncing itself.


try this: take the battery out, then hold down the red power button...keep holding it until you put the battery back in and your screen comes on. Hope this helps, it worked for my daughter's!

Palm m105 connect to laptop


If you are using a Vista 64 bit operating system then you cannot perform a Sync, I will give you a link which has the Palm desktop software to install onto the computer and make it work.

Can I hot sync z22 palm without the touchscreen?


The data on your old Z22 is very likely very secure, and the touch screen problem is very common - there are a few tricks to get the touch screen working long enough to transfer the data.
I have a web page entirely for maintaining, repairing, and interfacing your Z22 at:
kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html

You can try these tricks, or just replace the screen for $9 U.S., since the screen only needs you take the unit apart and flip open a connector lock ...

I would strongly advise getting a solid plastic cover over your new Z22, since this is the key to keeping the screen working...

hope the information is of help to you

good luck

My Palm m105 wont start.


Your palm is dead. Leave it in rice with FRESH batteries for a week. If that doesn't work, then your palm needs to be replaced. See the newer models here: http://www.palm.com/

Tungsten E - HotSync with Outlook 2003


Don't skip the initial HotSync for secondary computer! Alright, I figured this one out on my own and figured I'd post what I'd learned so that others don't have to endure the teeth mashing, hair pulling, snarling frustration. (self induced as it may be) My experiences have taught me to not always trust a cookie cutter installation wizard...especially for custom app installations (ie: primary = home, secondary=work, total sync, no priority). So, I did not perform the initial sync during installation of the palm software fearing that the new installation would NOT recognize that the work computer was a secondary machine and resultantly wipe out the old palm data from the primary machine. Turns out, as I saw in many other unrelated posts, that it's difficult (if not impossible) to specify conduit direction to outlook 2003 outside of the initial sync (this prompted me to specifically look for conduit direction during install). So, this wizard is one I should have trusted...by mistake...because of weak program design. By the way...once I specified sync with outlook during the initial sync, EVERYTHING works fine despite not having installed the two "imperative" conduit updates (they were uninstalled after several previous failed attempts at this). Hope this helps

Won't sync to clean Palm


It may be due to a permissions issue on the workstation running the hot sync program
