Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld
I get this message every time I shut down my Palm E2. (Sys 0505) (0, 746)
If I do not touch the (OK) message screen, I have to do a soft reset to restart PDA.
What old programs do I have to remove??
I noticed this problem with mine and solved it by loosening the 4(four) T5 screws in the back. The problem is caused by a swollen battery. When the PDA is left charging for extensive periods of time, as mine was(several months of inactivity and never thought to unplug it), the battery will swell. It's still a good battery and holds a charge, but the increased girth presses on the internal boards of the PDA causing the screen to register a continuous "touch" and therefore seems locked. It's actually waiting for the phantom touch to release so it can act. Unscrewing the fasteners allows the body to expand, thereby releasing the pressure on the screen and letting the phantom touch go away. I'm going to see how well my e2 does without the screws in it at all for a few days. The front and back panels have "clips" molded into them which hold to the side frames, keeping it closed. But the fasteners are there to ensure the PDA doesn't fall apart all together. So, wish me luck. I'll report back in a few days and update this.

Try a hard reset and wiping it out. Then resync it with the newest Palm Desktop manager 6.2
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Try to perform a System Reset (see article linked below). If it works to break the loop, you should then be able to delete the offending "My Palm" software and perform a Hotsync to backup your data to your desktop.
If that doesn't break the loop, you'll have to perform another Hard Reset. Sometimes, a Hard Reset takes a couple of tries to get it right, since it's easier to do it wrong than to do it right.
This article discusses the various types of Reset for different Palm devices:
Until you break the TX out of its loop, you won't be able to get the data from it.
To see the Palm OS version running on your TX, enter the Menu, select Info, then Version.
To Get Out Of A Loop:
b) And THEN press and release the RESET Button
c) When you see the second Logo (Palm Powered) release the UP Button
d) Now check if your SYSTEM RESET worked by going to Beam Receive. If it goes back to Off even after you put it to On it means you were successful
2. Now Perform A SOFT RESET by pressing and releasing the button in the back once
