Question about Palm Zire 71 Handheld

Palm Zire 71

My Zire 71 simply stops responding. Tapping the stylus on the screen produces nothing. It is as if the screen has frozen. A soft reset does not help. I did a hard reset and the screen froze at the area, date and time screen. The battery is fully charged.

The top plastic digitizer is defective.

It needs to be replaced.

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

Best regards,

Zire 71 screen does not sense stylus input -- even after performing a reset.

HI,
Try doing a hard reset. This will erase everything on your zire and restore it to brand new settings. To do a hard reset make sure you have everything backup on your palm desktop. Here are the steps for the hard reset:


1. Hold down the power button and then depress the small hole in the back with the tip of your stylus2.gif.

2. Continue to hold them both in until you see the Palm2.gif logo.

3. Let go of both of them and then follow the onscreen directions. You will want to answer yes and use the 5 way navigation button on the bottom of your pda and hit up so that is completes the reset. After that you will have to set up your touch screen and go through the tapping the target. After you have gone through all this then do a hotsync. It should clear up your problem. Best wishes.

Turn it on it says Set UP using stylus. But nothing happens.

The digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

You can find digitizer parts in ebay or other on-line companies, at reasonable prices.

Regarding the labor cost, depending of the repair shop you choose, it may be cheap or expensive.

Zire won't come on

You need to follow the procedure to calibrate the digitizer.

If the screen does not respond to the stylus, then the digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

Screen insensitive to stylus

Have you run the digitizer app, which is located in Preferences, and recalibrates the digitizer? If it is not the digitizer problem , it may be the stylus you are using.. read this: http://discussion.brighthand.com/palmhandhelds/showthread.php?s=2291eadf13e4feda45b1303d5ba7089e&threadid=3182 By the way, about Palm's "repair service", take a look below: "... I can sympathize with you. Six months after I bought a Palm Zire 71 I had exactly the same problem, it would not respond to the stylus. I sent it in for repair (fortunately I got someone in India who spoke fairly good English). They set it back after a week or so and a month later I had exactly the same problem again. (They did return my original unit.) Again I had to send it in and they sent me a replacement that works so far. I had a previous experience with Palm's "repair service" where they again did a repair that only lasted a few weeks. ..."
