Question about Palm Zire 21 Handheld

1 Answer

My Plam Zire 21 handheld has worked fine; suddenly it will not turn on, or at least the screen remains dark. I have tried re-charging the battery, and resetting the device, but to no avail. Any other ideas?The unit is about 4 years old. Could the battery just suddenly have dropped dead?

It is possible that the battery has lost it's skill. If you can plug it in, either by usb to a computer or through the power supply, and the screen shows it is a goner.

The link below is for the palm zire m150 if your interested in replacing the battery yourself. The zire 21 is similar to that model so it's pretty much universal.

Suddenly it will not take activity by screen. Pressing or drawwing on the screen gives NO results, as if screen is dead. Buttons still work. Just cannot add, change, or access entries. Can the database...

Welcome to Fixya

Sounds like the problem is the LCd screen already. Have you tried doing a hard reset to your palm? The data in your palm can only be transferred using Hotsync. Try uninstall/install the software again to the new computer. May i know the Windows OS of the new computer and what is the model of your Palm.

Thank you for using FIxya!

No Windows 7 driver for Palm Zire 21

Wait till one is provided by the manufacturer. Palm Desktop: Windows 7 compatibility Palm's synchronization software, Palm Desktop 6.2, was designed for 32-bit versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. Palm has not done thorough testing with the broad range of third-party equipment running Windows 7 and therefore can't provide assurances about compatibility.

How do i fix a zire 21 palm it wont turn on, charge,work nothing

Hello.

From Palm support:

1. Press either the Date Book or Address Book button to see if
you can turn on your handheld that way.
2. Perform a soft reset: Use the tip of an unfolded paper clip
(or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the
reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your
handheld.
3. Make sure the power adapter is plugged securely into a
working electric outlet and is firmly connected to the
handheld. (If no outlet is available, your handheld can also
be charged through the USB cable, but this takes much
longer.)
Note: Your handheld does not have an indicator light to indicate that your handheld is being charged.
4. Charge for another three full hours.
5. If your handheld now turns on, check the charging-battery icon to ensure that your handheld is being charged. Example:
a. Connect the handheld to an outlet and turn it on.
b. Tap Home .
c. Look for the lightning bolt on the battery icon at the top of the screen.
d. If you do not see the lightning bolt, repeat steps 3 and 4.

Hope this helps.

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.

Palm Zire 71 works when it is on the sync but not off

You are right
there is a component on the main board of your PDA
that is most likely fried
power from the PC chord will go to the PDA
but when you unplug it the machine will look to the battery for power
and the electricity will convert to heat at the point of that fried component
on the more thin Palm models you can feel it without taking the case off

and it will "forget" any new information you input due to the type of memory it uses

Treo 650 "Dead Screen"

Try plugging in your Treo as if you were charging it.

Then click the reset button in the back.
This should reset the charging mechanism inside.
See if the Treo starts to charge again after that by letting it sit for 1-2hrs.

Lost data on palm zire 21 hand held

To the best of my knowledge, if you don't have a pc backup, you are out of luck.... Sorry to be the bearer of bad news... Download the Palm Desktop Software and start to use it if you decide to continue using the Zire 21. The Software is free from Palm.

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
