Completely dead. new battery won't work. need to retreive info

Probably the firmware of the mobile is corrupt better that you take it to a Palm sevice centre and get it repaired.
There would be a loss of data if the firmware is changed.

Hard reset and charging problems

do the hard reset again .. hold the power button down while operating the reset in the back .. keep the power button down for a few seconds .. that should bring up a display "delete all" .. you can choose to do so .. that will be a hard reset .. now if the battery is dead and the charger is not working then nothing will work for you .. you might have a bad charger .. often the end that plugs into the unit develops a broken wire inside the cable ..
the m515 wont charge from the sync cable (shame) it needs the external power adapter .. make sure the connections on the charger and palm are clean .. the power adapter is 5 volts and i think about 1 amp .. )(center pos) if you want to try another adapter .. the tip is rather standard ... also you can get a universal power adapter from radio shack that will work on just about anything .. you just plug in a suitable tip .. the tip for your palm is an "A19" .. the power adapter is "IGO" wall adapter 23-1401 model PSM08VADJ ... that seems to work nicely and it plugs directly in to the palm .. so you can work with it plugged in .. when the charger is working there should be a lightning bolt thru the battery symbol .. it sounds like you already know that .. if the battery has gone open then it may not indicate a charge .. but the unit should still work while on the charger if that is actually working ....

How to Replace the Battery on a Palm Z22

The Palm Z22 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which, in theory, can be recharged an infinite number of times. In practice, however, the lifespan of a rechargeable battery is finite. Replacing the battery yourself is possible if you have some skill with tools and a bit of patience.

Difficulty: Moderate
Things You’ll Need:

* Star-bit screwdriver
* New z22 battery
* Palm z22

What to Do
Pull down on the back cover of your Palm Z22, and remove the cover from the device.there is a trick to it. The little translucent bezel surrounding the USB connector can be snapped out, revealing two T-5 (Torx) screws. Remove the bezel and the two screws and the other three sides will separate with some gentle prying as you have already discovered.

The best way to remove the bezel seems to be to slip a knife (or a thin fingernail) into the joint closest to the display. It's a tight fit but you don't have to separate it very far to get it to pop out.

The battery is not "user replaceable" - i.e. it is soldered in place, but you can buy one online if you're prepared to do the solder work.

Loosen and remove the screws from the Z22's casing using a star-bit screwdriver.
If there are tabs present on the circuit board, you will need to stop immediately. Consult with a technician about removing the tabs.
Find the battery. Move it out of the case so you can have better access to the power supply lead.
Pull the power supply lead from the battery. Grasp the base of the plug firmly and disconnect in one smooth motion.
Remove the old battery from the case and insert the new battery into the same position and with the same orientation.
Replace the rear cover on the Z22 and charge the new battery for at least four hours before use.
Tips & Warnings

* Use firm steady pressure to open the case. Sharp blows and delicate electronics do not mix.
* A star-bit screwdriver is not the same as a Phillips screwdriver. The star-bit has a six-flanged head which looks a little like an asterisk when viewed head-on.
* If your battery has a blue casing on it, do not attempt to change the battery.

How to Buy a Replacement Battery for a Palm Z22

The Palm Z22 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This means that you can use it forever, right? Well, no, because even rechargeable batteries wear out eventually. Since Palm currently does not offer replacement batteries, you will have to track one down yourself. Here is how to buy a replacement battery for a Palm Z22.

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You’ll Need:

* Palm Z22

Write down the technical specifications of the Palm Z22 battery. The battery is 3.7 volts and delivers 950 mAH.
Shop at your favorite local retailer, electronics store or battery specialty store. Take advantage of the sales staff’s knowledge in your hunt for a battery that is compatible with the Z22. Bring your Palm Z22 to the store to be sure that the battery fits.
Search for an online retailer who carries the Z22 replacement battery. Once you have found a couple of vendors that have the goods, shop for the best deal. Remember to include shipping costs into your decision.
Get information about return policies or money-back guarantees before shelling out any money. Returns may not be an option for the Z22 replacement battery due to the specific complications involved with lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
Tips & Warnings

* You will need a tool kit to change your battery. The screws on a Palm Z22 require a star-bit screwdriver to loosen the shell.
* Correct use of your battery charger will prolong the life of your batteries, whether the original issue or replacement.
* Be sure that your batter is compatible. You don’t want to fry the Z22 with a high-powered, incompatible battery.

Plug you E2 into your PC for 8 hours to slow charge. Press reset button on back and later in life your E2 will come on by itself.

Palm Tungsten E2 won't work after power cord is removed.

The traditional steps for resetting charging problems are:
1) press reset /while/ the power cord is plugged in
2) unplugging the battery for about 30 seconds, then plugging it back in

You have done #2, but I do not know if you have done #1. Try it, then try to recharge again. If that fails then you probably need a new battery. I have found them on eBay before.

Is this a battery problem?

If it's not the E2 going to sleep mode ;-), have it checked by a Palm service center .It might just need a new battery. Worst case scenario the charging system is faulty. Have it checked.

Hope that helps. Let me know how you make out.
