Tech Support for Palm
October 10, 2007 2:25pm CST
Does anyone here need tech support for palm handhelds? Do you anyone who can troubleshoot the issues of palm? There are a lot of bugs one company has to fix when it comes to their products but as I have observed, one thinks the other one is much better but found out that each product from one brand to another has limitations. Hmmm...that must be the reason why tech support is there :) What do you think?

Lezlie, I was rather late getting involved with Palm PDA's, having bought my first one when the Tungsten T5 came out. Since as a new user I was clueless I looked for PDA forums and quickly found some incredibly helpful people online. Now, the limitations notwithstanding, I consider the better Palm handhelds indispensible, and even the Zire 72, which is the one I slip into a pocket to take everywhere, performs simply amazing functions. Probably the most exciting feature on Palm OS products is their ability to run a remarkable piece of software by Dataviz called SmartList. It is the most remarkable database I've ever seen, and I use it for everything from tracking inventory to budget analysis to storing my grocery shopping list. I just wish they made a version that runs on Windows. Which Palm products do you have?

I see you like Manga, too, and when I look at those books sometimes there is just one design that I want to draw, so instead of buying the whole book, I take a picture with my Zire72 and name the file after the day I took the picture and in the description I put which book it was in and where I saw the book and how much it cost. So since the Tungsten, even though it is nicer, doesn't have a camera, when I go out anywhere usually I take the Zire. But I use the Tungsten at home. Since they both have Bluetooth, I do transfer files between them. Glad to find another person here who likes Palm PDA's especially the Tungsten. Do you like to read the Manga stories or just draw the pictures?

Speaking of tech support... Maybe I should start a new thread for this, but being new here and having limited time in the office to figure things out, I'll just post it here and hope for the best. As if Palm needed help creating tech support issues, I decided to give them a hand by replacing the digitizer on my Tungsten T3 on my own. The problem isn't the digitizer, though... that's working wonderfully (besides breaking the connector for the flat cable, but I was able to repair that with some strategic precision soldering). The real problem is that after putting everything back together I discovered that my graffiti input area had disappeared!:( It isn't a matter of view selection... I've checked all that. The area where the graffiti input (or virtual keyboard) should be is simply black all the time, even with the screen extended. It seems to me that it's a contact problem (where the sliding bottom part should be making or breaking an electrical contact point to turn the screen extension on and off)... but I've looked the whole thing over and everything SEEMS to be in the right place. If I can get an idea of how Palmone's genius engineers designed this feature, I think I can avoid having to look for a Palm tech center here in Italy... Anybody?Thanks in advance!
