Description of the most common repairs for this model(click on the item to see the description)
- A new digitizer is needed if one or more of the following conditions are experienced; (1)Palm does not register taps on the screen, (2)locations on the screen register erratically and/or sporadic taps, (3)location where you tap is registered somewhere else on the screen - for example 1/8" up from tapped area, (4)graffiti writing is difficult, (5)during the screen calibration either the Palm does not see your taps or never completes the calibration process, (6)if you have a glass digitizer and it is cracked.
- The OEM digitizer is made out of plastic, the benefit over glass is it will not crack/break, the downside is the plastic digitizer does not hold the calibration values as well as the glass and does not last as long. Palm started using plastic to lower the price of the components
- With a glass digitizer the substrate, bottom layer of the digitizer, is made out of glass, it will still have a very hard plastic layer on the top just like the plastic digitizer so it can and will scratch but it will retain its calibration values better then the OEM. Because it is glass it can crack if dropped however the glass works to strengthen the whole display so if the unit is dropped it is less likely to break the fragile LCD screen which is behind the digitizer.
If we identify any other problems during the repair process you will be notified you via email or phone then given an option for the additional repair(s).
