I bought a used Palm z22, the previous owner didn't clear out their password. How can I clear it so I can use


Press and hold the power button through out.

While holding the power button use the stylus or similar item to press the reset button on the back of the Z22.

Keep the power button pressed until you see the Palm logo appear.


Let go and hopefully this will reset everything, although it is not guaranteed to reset the password.

If it all works and resets everything, you should be able to set the Z22 as you want from now.

I have a palm z22 Pda the tochksrceen is no working


There are several answers listed in Fixya under Z22 and touchpad or touch screen. You can start by trying to clean under the edges of the face frame with a credit card or something similar. If that doesn't work, try a soft reset by pushing the reset button on the back of the device. If that doesn't work, you can do a hard reset, but it loses all the data in the device. If you have it stored on your desktop calendar, this might solve the problem. To do a hard reset, check this site for instructions. http://kb.palm.com/wps/portal/kb/common/article/42094_en.html

If those steps don't work, you may need to replace the digitizer. You can pay someone to do it, or you can buy the part on ebay for about $12. Get one that comes with the tools you will need. Unfortunately, they don't come with instructions. I have posted the instructions in several places on Fixya. If you can't find them, write again. Hopefully the easier steps will do the trick.

The touchscreen of my Z22 is broken


The Z22 is a bullet-proof device for securely saving your personal data, and full marks go to the team at PALM for its solid design. However, the AGE of the Z22, over the last decade, results in 3 problems - the batteries are all dying, and the delicate plastic touchscreen top layer is deteriorating - simply through AGE. When you say the touchscreen is "Broken", I would guess you mean that it does not respond to touch commands from the black plastic stylus that sits in the slot on the back, side, of the unit, when stored. I have never actually seen or heard of a screen that is physically "broken" - like the thousands of iPod, iPhone, Motorola RAZOR, and other touch screen phones that you see today, with cracks running across the broken GLASS. It "Could" happen that the glass screen under the top plastic touch layer is, actually "BROKEN", with the resulting cracks, but this is unlikely, since the trim around the screen is raised a HUGE distance, compared to today's touchscreens.
You can easily replace the screen for $9 if you wait for free shipping from CHINA, or, you can try a few tricks I learned on my Z22 over the years. I have put it in the freezer - which worked temporarily, heated it with a hair dryer - which worked temporarily, and peeled the top plastic layer off the screen- which worked temporarily. I have also replaced the screen with a new one. It is IMPERATIVE to put a hard plastic cover on the Z22 at all times- or you will eventually loose the screen again...

I hope this helps you to get your Z22 back up and running

have fun
good luck

Z22 palm handheld touchscreen won't respond - i've done soft reset -- several times -- used the 5 way to bring up the touchscreen -- tapped and nothing happened.


Hi, Try doing a hard reset to see if this will correct the problem.

Hold down the power button and at the same time use the tip of your stylus or any other non sharp item and press the inside the reset hole on the back of your palm.
When you see the Palm power logo appear you can let go of the power button and also the one on the back of you unit.
It will display a message asking if you want to do a hard reset and that it will erase all your data. select yes by hitting the up part of your 5 way button on the bottom of your unit. This is the one you use to navigate around your palm screen. After it resets you wil then be prompted to reset the screen by tapping the targets. If it works great. If not then you have something wrong that needs to be looked at. Before you send it in go to:
www.palm.com.
Select pda and then your model. From there go to the support screen and do a live chat. This is free and they may be able to live you some help. Best wishes.

It locked up. Unable to hard reset. When the screen shows graphic to touch screen with stylus, nothing happens


HI,
I found you a link to the Pam support page. You can do phone support with palm but it will cost $25. There is also a chat feature and that looks like it is free so that is the way I would go. Best wishes.

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

Stylus taps to screen don't result in any changes


Hi there JL Dakota. I had many problems with my Z22 over the years. The top layer of the screen is a plastic sheet that must remain stretched completely ABOVE the lower layer of glass that it sits above. Going to Florida, from a colder climate, for example could WARM the screen up a bit, and allow it to stretch, and hit the lower layer. If it touches the lower layer, it shorts out, and will not respond to any touches after that. Putting it in the freezer will shrink the top layer of plastic temporarily, and allow touching the screen to push it down where you touch. Usually this problem is the result of years of NOT protecting the screen from being pushed on by having a HARD COVER over the screen - for example, keeping the Z22 in a pocket, a shirt pocket, a bag, a purse, a briefcase, even in a drawer full of pens, paper, stapler, etc. would TOUCH the screen, and eventually stretch it. If you see my website analysis of the Z22 kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html , there are many photographs, and discussions on the various typical Z22 problems that I ran into, and the solutions. These include touchscreen problems, and include putting in the freezer, using a heat gun or hot air hair dryer, splitting the top layer and bottom layer of the screen apart, putting in a new screen ($9 US), etc. I discuss many other issues. Immediately getting a hard cover over the unit at all times is the single most important factor! Once the screen top layer is warped, just sitting the Z22 down upside down might let gravity pull the screen gently away from the glass substrate. Rubbing the screen, using your fingers, sitting the Z22 down on an angle, touching the screen with anything, all could cause it to deform and touch the bottom layer constantly... the link again is below. The general circuit board is incredibly tough, and the amount of abuse it took when I tore it apart repeatedly is amazing. Generally it is bullet proof. The dying battery, the extremely delicate touch screen, and the possibility of buttons shorting, are the biggest problems. Do take a look at the full discussion on the subject at the link. Good luck.
