Question about Palm Zire 71 Handheld
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.
