Question about Palm Tungsten E Handheld

Tungsten E Is there out there, any schematics for a Palm Tungsen E. I've got two that just replacing the battery caused them to go bad. I've been in electronics for 45 yrs and never had a problem like this.

    expensive paperweight. I did have a static ********, but...

  • Jtannenba Jan 10, 2009

    Didn't fix it. Can't find a schematic for it. Without a schematic, with multilayer boards,etc, it's almost impossible to figure out where things are connecting.

  • Jtannenba Feb 01, 2009

    I tried to put the old battery in, with the same results. The little coil by the battery gets hot, so I think the blown by static is still the answer. Still, it's a guess without a schematic. Don't know why in this day and age of specialty chips, a schematic is so hard to come by, it's not like we are going to go out and make our own unit like back in the days of the tube and early transistor radio days.

I also have a Palm "E". It works fine plugged into the wall charger/Power supply but will not hold a charge at all. I too have 30 years of electronic repair but it is of no benefit with micrelectronic products. I thought there might be a fuseable device for the battery supply? But it sounds like there is a better chance of it not working at all if I get inside the unit. But really if the device is not portable it is fairly worthless. Any advice on this- I guess I should be smart and just let it go-toss it and move on. Any confirmation on this? Thanks T

Amazingly prone to static electricity. Because Tungsten was smart enough to make the battery a solder in (yeah right), service on them is so bad, even Tungsten won't fool with it. Can you say paperweight?

    As you put it. In the good old days!!. You need to realize. I have a Blackberry and Seimens SX66 on my side. I had an E and an E2 both. Due to the way Palm deals with their equipment and 3rd party software, it became too much to keep reloading just to keep using. As Cmaso put it..."It worked!!". They were more right than they know. I can make Palm devices do things that other people can't, but due to how they react later, some stuff is done again and again. Music and pics is the only thing that stayed stable axcept for the programs default to the unit. Our/My/ Your world is now spinning so fast that E is now relic. It is still god for what it is used for but it is very antiquated. It's value for repair is so low, it is a tosser. That's why I said don't bother. Most people don't listen too me till they invest in the money pit. Best value for the dollar for now is a good Seimens SX66 from EBAY still going for avg $75. It will read ANY SD card from a laptop with NO conversion and synchs with Outlook. Don't have outlook, SX software has Outlook in it and it is Windows based. The reality of it all is, inless you are absoluteky devoted to Palm, lose it and go Windows. If you could, my rating wasn't an effort, it was a fact. Please change to helpful or even fixya because you can't do any more on this. TY

Reset problem with Tungsten t3

Could be a loose battery connection. Or perhaps a bad battery. If you think you are up to it you can check your battery connection yourself. The E had a soldered connection -- difficult to replace. The E2 had a socketed connection -- easy to replace. I do not know about the T3. There are "take-apart" videos on You may be able to find a replacement battery on eBay.

USB device not recognized or has malfunctioned on hotsync

Last week, windoze started barking the same complaint at me. A hard reset (of my Tungsten E) solved the problem. Caution: A hard reset (keep the power button pressed while performing a normal reset. Only release power button, when Palm logo screen appears. The press up-key) delete ALL data (even the identity, i.e. hotsync ID) from your palm - so be sure to have a recent backup!
