Hard reset does not fix, digitizer will not respond

My PalmOne Zire 31 PDA freezes. A soft reset doesn't get it going again but a hard reset has, until now. This time, a hard reset displayed the digitizer target as before, but tapping on the bulls-eye only moves the target from top left to lower right of the screen and back again. How do I clear out the problem and re-install the programs from scratch? (at the moment, I cannot access HotSynch).

    The same issue just started on my palm. I can hard reset and get the digitizer screen but it never finishes asking me to touch the circles as they move from corner to corner.

If you want to reset the password for your palm, go into prefs, then security.

In there, you want to try to get the unassign/lost password to come up.

Click on the -Assigned- and look for lost password/unassign.
If it doesn't appear there initially, try to enter the incorrect password several times.

A window should pop up asking if you want to reset/unassign the password.

There is a reset pin hole on the back of the unit; Hold the power button and push the reset button in the hole with a paperclip. All memory should now be erased.

I did not write the posting attributed to me. I have a Palm Tungsten E. My Dad had been using it and I needed to know how to do a hard reset so it would accept my info. I found that on the Palm site after looking on your site. I performed the hard reset and hot synced the Palm with my info.

Thank you, Sue Nutt

First, download the game to your PC.
Then add that downloaded file(.prc file) in the Install Tool/ Quick Install from PalmDesktop application. Then perform the HotSync to transfer it to the device.

Double Screen on Zire 31


Have you tried a reset? You might have to open up the case (carefuly, i broke the cables by accident on mine doing that)and wiggle the cables around, As they could have shaken lose over time. if all that fails, you might have to do a hard reset or re-instal the software.

Hello LyMaBa

Do you have an SD card inserted in the PDA?

If so remove it and restart your PDA.

Did the problem go away. If so, please, go HERE for the Zire 71 Expansion update or HERE for the SD/SDIO update.

You can find all the manuals for the Palm Zire 71 PDA HERE.

If you don't have a SD card inserted, you might want to try performing a WARM RESET of your PDA. Youtube has a video on this process HERE.

You can find instructions HERE for performing a reset ("warm" or "hard") on your Palm PDA.

You can find other software, info, downloads, etc.
HERE for your Zire 71.

If performing a "warm" reset doesn't work, try performing a "hard" reset.

*** WARNING!!! ***
YOU WILL loose ALL of your data on the PDA by performing a "hard" reset so make sure it's data has been synchronized w/ your computer software (Palm Desktop, Microsoft Outlook, etc).

What is LyncHS, and Why am I crashing EVERY day?!


LyncHS, Zire 72, Soft Reset and XP Professional I do a sync and my PDA crashes... I have to do a soft reset almost every single time. I have been having the same exact problem but cannot seem to find anyone who can help!!!! Before I got my Zire 72 I had this problem with my Sony Clie. I even narrowed it down to this LyncHS application and still could not get help. I finally purchased a new PDA because I was getting tired of this happening. It was not the PDA... it is the Palm OS or a Palm application that is a problem. I have not installed ANY third party applications so PalmOne needs to quit trying to tell me to uninstall those. MitaMe, you are absolutely correct... this is not acceptable and since I am not the only one having problems, I fully expect PalmOne to take it more seriously and try to resolve it. I should not have to perform a soft reset most every time I sync on my Windows XP Professional PC. By the way, I sync on my computer at home which is not Windows XP Pro and this does NOT happen.
