Re: Palm will not turn on
Have you tried a hard reset? Todo a hard reset, First press and hold the power button, while holding the power button use the tip of the stylus to gently press and release the reset button. wait for the logo to appear then release the power button. when you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your hand held press up on the 5way navigator to finish the reset

Usually I just hit the reset button and hope nothing was corrupted. Just use your stylus or a pin and press the reset button in the hole on the back/bottom of the palm. It will then reboot and you should have control back. Blazer is pretty stable but once in a while it acts up.
It could be the battery. may be the charger is stuck ,did you Connect the E2 to the charger then soft reset ?this should reset the charging circuit on the Palm.after that Let it connected to the power adapter for a good 2 hours. After that, disconnect the Palm and see if it will turn on. If not, then you need to get a replacement battery for your Palm.hpe this helps.pls do let me know thanks
Turn it on pressing the reset at the same time or take out battery and unplug/plug the battery. Your battery may have died. If this is helpful, post as such. If it is a fixya, post as such. I had an E2, can tell you alot about it. TY
The Tungsten is an excellent PDA You do have to be careful with how you handle it if you've dropped it too many times or set it down too hard or whatever something inside will get cracked or disconnected. So you may want to open it up (personally I use a really small screwdriver but there is a kit for 9.95 on PDAsmart.com that comes with a Shim like tool that is really useful for splitting the Tungsten open because its not easy getting it open and closed)any way open the back up and make sure everything is connected and clean especially the connectors to the screen, battery and USB/charging plugs. You may also need to try charging it overnight. If you haven't run the PDA in a while its going to read a full charge regardless of how much of a charge its actually holding. Also, there are alot of other places to get A PDA repaired do a little research and find a place near you that will repair a PDA. An official Palm repair is almost always going to cost you more than anywhere else.
1- Poke the hole in the back where it says reset. This will in essence reboot your Palm.
2- Make sure the Auto-Off after: is set to 2 minutes by going into the Preferences, Power section.
3- If your Palm is not holding charge, connect the Palm to charge it. Turn the Palm on and make sure the battery at the top has a lightning bolt going through it. This will let you know it is charging. Then, push the reset hole in the back to reset the Palm. This should reset the charging mechanism in the Palm and allow your battery to hold power.
If the Palm does not hold power after step 3, you may need to see about getting it serviced.
If it's not making the bleep sound when you first connect it, then something is wrong with the connection between the computer and Palm.
Try plugging it in and then while it's plugged in hit the reset button. This resets the charging mechanism inside. Then let it sit a few hours to see if it will come on later.
Also, you may need to troubleshoot the connection from the Palm to the computer. Make sure all is connected securely, make sure the Palm Desktop icon is in the bottom right hand corner of your computer in the system tray.
