The Palm Graveyard


Resurrection or E Pluribus Unum

Victim: Kevin Bersell
Date added: 4/20/2000


My Palm Pro's digitizer unit went out recently, so I bought a new Palm IIIe. A week ago I dropped it and broke the screen. I searched the web looking for someone to repair it for less than the $100 that Palm charges and I found a site which was offering screens for about $45.

After looking at the instructions for replacing the screen, I began to wonder if I could use the screen from my old Pro in my IIIe. So it took them both out and they looked very similar. So I swapped them out. And it worked!

Now I've got a working palm III. And while the screen quality isn't as good as on the orginal IIIe screen I don't have anymore screen streaks.
