I had the same problem with a palm m125 - virtually unused, but out of warranty.
Definitely a tech fault IMO - get it fixed or replaced otherwise it will drive you insane.
I bought an add on keyboard, which was fine up to a point, but I ended up getting a new palm anyway.

HG, there's no way that 18 months of light use has worn out your Graffiti area. I agree with 4eyes, it's probably hardware failure of some kind. Check your warranty, although you've probably owned it long enough to be past the coverage date. If you got it through a cell service provider, see if they have any kind of blanket warranty coverage or other offer that would soften the blow of full-cost replacement.

Mine always did that too Hawkgirl - then I cleaned the screen. I'm serious. Even minor bits of "Screen slime" does it on my palm.
I got a bunch of those fellows screen protectors and it works pretty good.
I wonder sometimes if heat or cold can effect the screen. They are sooo touchy.

Hmmm. Warranty is definitely out.
Checking into carrier coverage but I'm doubtful. I never have the luck of blanket coverage. :)
Screen is clean - please! That's the first thing I did. I'm feeling insulted! ;)
OK. So I need to limp along with this thing for a month or two until I switch cellphone providers - then I'm going to have to get a new PDA.
Any suggestions for a new one? I've had 2 Palms. Is it still the best?

Any scratches on the screen?

Hmmm. A couple of scratches. (I let a really nice kid on a plane play around with it a while ago ... he was reallllly polite.)
But you know what - the scratches were there for 6 months before the graffiti area started to fail.
So I'm guessing they're not the main culprit.
