Question about Palm Zire 72 Special Edition Handheld

Open Question

Good Morning, My Zire 72 does not want to turn on .. I did a reset pushing the on-off bottom + reset on back. It worked, but after shuting down the palm, it does not want to turn on again. I thought it was a battery problem so I bought a battery but the problem happened again. It seems to be a software problem more than hardware as I thought in first place .. Would you advise??

Those two devices are not compatible to one another. You may get it to work by exporting the Palm desktop data into a CSV file and importing it into the program you use to sync the Itouch with.

You have a bad connection, or no connection to the digitizer. This is common when changing out batteries. Re-open the case and check the connector to the digitizer.

No sim card in the Zire 72. On-board memory on the motherboard only to store records not directed to or on expansion memory card.
Zire 72 battery changeout not designed to be user serviceable. Undertake at your peril (unless you are very steady handed, patient, and very very careful). The 72 is probably the most difficult of the Palms to change batteries. Go to: http://forum.brighthand.com
Navigate to the Zire 72 section and read the posts. There are even detailed photos and uTube movies that deal with changing the battery. I have used their forum for years. Lots of help there.

Palm zire 72 will not syn with pc running win 8.1


You find a fix to that problem, and the (Palm) world will beat a path to your door. HP, Palm's new owner, has attempted a fix for Win7, but Win8/8.1 may become the impossible hurdle.

Good luck!

Zire 72 resets on its own


Hello.

First, if you have not done so, perform a soft reset then a hard reset, if still a problem.

If a problem after the resets, your battery is most likely the culprit. I'd suggest to remove / insert or totally replace the battery.

If you are comfortable disassembling the Zire 72, here are some instructions found online:

Hope this helps.

My Palm Zire 72 tumbled into two inches of water.


It seems that unfortunately you PDA is damaged and needs professional repair service, or just forget about it and buy another one.

Water causes to have corrosion and shorts in electronic devices, even if is dried internally (residues cause the shorts), which is an quemical effect of have water (or moisture) with copper and other metals and a voltage from the battery.

If anyway is already damaged, you may want to try in repair it yourself.

If so, you will need to open it, and remove all residues (kind of green or white dust over the components) from the copper traces, connectors and components.

If the event is recent, there is the chance you can clean it completely, but I do see that this happened a couple of months ago.

If several weeks (or months) passed, then a deep corrosion already took place in it, and is likely that the components and connections have been permanently damaged.

In order to open and repair, you will need:

1. Torx scredriver and philips screwdriver
2. Plastic pry tool to open it without leave marks or damage the PDA housing
3. 5X magnifier with light, or better if you can use a microscope, so you can review all the areas (including under the tiny electronic components) and clean them.

If you send it to repair, it will be expensive, and it may be over the cost of buy an used PDA but in good working conditions.

I mean, depending of the damage caused by the water, it may be necessary to replace one or all the major components inside the PDA (mainboard, LCD screen, speaker, camera, battery, etc).

Best regards,
