    How do I do a hard reset? My zire 71 battery is totally DEAD and it is not responding at all to the charger. I don't have the instruction book anymore, so when you say "do a hard reset" I have no idea what you mean. Please help! And thanks!

    I have EXACTLY the same problem with my brand new LG Viewty. The battery ran down overnight and I plugged in the charger to give the battery its first charge, but there is absolutely no response. Phone is completely dead. I have tried it with other chargers and the USB but nothing.

Hi,
A hard reset WILL ERASE ALL INFORMATION so make sure you back up everything before performing a hard reset.

To perform a hard reset hold down the power button and at the same time without releasing the power button push and release the reset button on the back of your device. Keep holding the power button until the SECOND palm logo screen comes on. When you see the second palm logo screen release the power button. It should ask you if you want to erase all data push the up button to erase all data. Your device will restart several times. Then to put your information back on your device just perform a hotsync.

Hope this helped :)

The easiest solutions are easily overlooked. 1. Check your charger; a cheap multimeter will do for the voltage check. If the voltage (dc) written on the back of the charger is what you get at the plug, go to (2),if not, change your charger,problem solved. 2.You either have a messed up screen or battery. 3. Check the voltage at your battery terminals after charging the battery for like 1hr. If you do not get a resonable read; 2-5v ,just trash the battery and head for the nearest shop to get a fresh one.In case your battery reads okay,your screen or worse, one of the components on the board of the set has gone kaput.

Did you try hard resetting the device? If it doesnt work, leave the PDA with the battery out for maybe an hour and try again

Asus x205t won't power on.


I just had a similar problem with the same Asus model. It drained the battery yesterday and today wouldn't start even after charging for 15min (the middle light was on so it was charging). The light bulb light was on though even when it wasn't charging. Tried pressing the button several times. Didn't help. Tried holding it for several seconds. Didn't help. But when I hold the button for around 30sec the light bulb turned off. And then another press and it turned on as normal. So the laptop must have been hibernated/sleeping. But it did give me a heart attack, especially when I realised that I will have to take it to Currys for repair where their very unknowledgable KnowHow don't know how to fix anything (send a laptop three times and still didn't fix the problem, they only know how to install software updates).

The touch screen of my zire 21 does not react to the stylus.


Digitizer is out. Take it to a cell phone repair store but be prepared to pay out the nose. In essence, back it up and throw it.

Zen V not charging, battery all out


Try resetting the device and charging it again. You may have to charge it for a few hours though.

Palm zire 71 replaced battery camera and charging port not wrking


Dis you see if either the brown plastic locking part of the connector is broken or missing?

Do you know if the soldering joints and terminals of such connector are in good shape?

I am asking because it may be only that the flat ribbon cable is nort placed properly, or such flat ribbon cable is damaged.

Also, the connector at the mainboard can be damaged.

Depending of what is damaged, it will be the cost to repair it.

I do recoomend you to disassembly very carefully your pda again, and check such areas and parts.

If you find something that is broken, you can get the needed parts from a broken PDA in Ebay or similar sites.

Best regards,

The top plastic digitizer is defective.

It needs to be replaced.

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

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.

Zire 71 won't turn on, battery full after reset.


You can try to leave it for a few hours then charge it again. Or you can replace the batteries. I also have the same problem but after the reset, everything worked fine
