Graffiti & other malfunctions on Palm m130

Graffiti & other malfunctions on Palm m130

Graffiti & other malfunctions on Palm m130

We have a Palm m130 that's been exhibiting increasingly odd malfunctions.  The calibration for the stylus on the screen has been off by about a half-centimeter, but whenever we tried to recalibrate, it wouldn't accept any input when we tried to tap the target (ultimately, we had to reset the Palm to use it again).

Now, whenever we try to use graffiti, the letters don't register correctly.  When we try to write "A". for example, it registers a slanted line and a straight horizontal line instead of "A" (and ends up printing out a period and a hyphen).  Using those exact same strokes on a different Palm gives the correct letter, and graffiti used to work fine on the m130.  Numbers, for now, are still working correctly on graffiti on the m130.

Has anyone run into this issue before, and knows how we can correct it?  Thanks!

If you've performed a hard reset and are still experiencing these problems the device will probably need to be returned for repair/replacement (assuming it's still under warranty)

You could try 'Graffiti Anywhere' and see if the whole screen gives you better results.
