Palm ungsten E/E2 digitizer - fragile?

Digitizer on my Tung/E skewed so bad had to touch an "a" to get a "z", only effected lower L /upper R, opposite corners where the unit calibrates were fine. replaced with a new Tung /E2, started doing the same in 3 months then digitizer failed completely during a calibrate sequence - all other atributes function. is the digitizer a weakness in this series that makes it risky to buy the part and replace it myself? if not, do you recommend digitizer/LCD combo or just replacing the digitizer? is there any after market SW to upgrade the digitizer formating to calibrate all corner points like my antique Palm had years ago? thx

Your gonna find that with the exception of the battery, all else should be left to the factory if nothing else but for factory warrantees. Your probably putting static electricity into the unit and they don't like that.

    Palm Tungsten E/E2 digitizer - fragile?


    Palm one is in trouble because of problems like this. They don't work on it but you can buy parts to try it yourself. I never had the problem myself but similar conditions. I do windows based units now.

    Can I sync an Ipod touch with my Palm Desktop for windows?


    I don't believe that the Palm desktop manager is compatible with Ipod. Unless you have your contacts associated with Microsoft Outlook, that should work.

    The top digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

    You can find digitizer parts in ebay or other on-line companies, at reasonable prices.

    Regarding the labor cost, depending of the repair shop you choose, it may be cheap or expensive.

    Also, if you have minimum experience and skills in fixing electronics, you can try it. really is not so difficult, and minimum set of tools are needed for it

    Best regards,
