Question about Palm Zire 31 Handheld

1 Answer

Nothing happening. When I use the on/off button, the calendar button or the contacts button, nothing happens. There is no display or sound of any kind. Nothing happens when I try to HotSync or hard reset. I've charged the battery for 8 hours both from the AC adapter that came with it and via USB and still nothing. I've even tried a little "percussive maintenance" and still nothing. I'm not taking it personally yet, but I may start. My first thought is the battery; can those be replaced on this model? The warranty has long expired. Thanks for your help.

It does sound like your battery or a connection between the battery & the rest of the inner workings. I would suggest contacting some aftermarket dealer/repair center and get a replacement battery. Be very specific about your Palm model number. If you are going to take it apart (doesn't matter if its out of warranty) the screw size is a Torx-6. There is one screw hidden under the label on the back.

Nothing works, displays numbers 1 thru 4.

What you're describing sounds like a corrupted controller, or maybe there is some grease, etc. on the controller, maybe where the keypad plugs into the controller.

Can you post a video demonstrating what happens?

This sounds really odd!

Freeze up

Most likely it's your memory ic (eprom). Sometimes depending on the make, an authorized service center can flash the eprom back to normal. This is something you can not do but I hope this helps a little.

MS Outlook syncs calendar, notes but not contacts

Click on the hotsync icon in your system tray and then click "custom". That will bring up the list of things you are configured to sync with (conduits). For each of the ones you have problems with, click that conduit and then make sure it's set to sync the way you want...desktop overrides, handheld overrides, syncronize, etc. Potentially you have some of them selected as "do nothing". What shows up when I click custom from hotsync are the following Outlook Conduits: Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Memos. If you don't have those showing up, you need to update your Outlook conduits on your PC. If you have them, click to select the problem conduit, then click "change" and select what you want to have happen.
