Zire 71 screen

I"ve had my zire 71 for five years. Today, I dropped it for the first time. There is no external damage, however, the screen will light and remain blank, sometimes with colored lines. Afew minutes ago, I turned it on and I was able to access all my info. I thought everything was good, until I turned it on again and the same blank screen appears.

Two possible scenarios:

1. Loose LCD screen connector inside the pda. You will need to open it and put it right.

It requires some level of skills to open it, repair it, close it properly.

If not precautions are taken, there are two major risks:

a) Break the flat ribbon cable of the universal PalmOne port (used to synchronize it and charge it).

b) Break a tiny switch that detects when is slided the top side so the camera application turns on.

2. LCD screen is damaged. It needs replacement.

You can get in touch with local repair services for it, and request a quote for its diagnostics and repair.

If after get some quotes, you think that they are excessive, you can contact the Ebay seller Great_items_2004 to receive a lower quote for it.

Zire 71 Camera


1) The camera is most likely broken- unless you are handy dont bother trying to use the camera

2) The booklet isn't all that useful but you can find a copy of it on Palm's website as a PDF file

3) It will turn off and a prompt will warn you of the low battery, but if you continue to turn it on it will "forget" everything in memory

I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy your Zire - it is a good PDA

Zire won't come on


You need to follow the procedure to calibrate the digitizer.

If the screen does not respond to the stylus, then the digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

The top plastic digitizer is defective.

It needs to be replaced.

There are several sources on-line to buy such digitizer part.

Goofy thing going on


Try resetting the digitizer on the Setup programs, it works for me, but needs resetting every so often. a lot easier (and cheaper) than buying a new screen for such an old machine.

Palm Zire 71... mind of its own


first use the digitizer in the prefs program on your palm
if that doesnt work someone or something has damaged your screen by pressing too ******* it and youll need to find a screen replacement Palm offers the safest and best job for 140 or something like that i recommend going somewhere else (to save money), just do some research and know who you're sending your palm to first

Zire 71 collected moisture


The digitizer function reads from the input of the LCD touch screen, so I would say LCD.
