Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld
Have spent three days trying to solve a problem: my hotsync cable won't sync to my palm desktop software. It used to, doesn't any longer. Using Vista OS, 32 bit. Worked just fine between purchase in Sept 08 and mid-Dec 08.
Called Palm tech support (in India), paid $14.95 to have them walk me through uninstalling the entire original software, installing the "new" 6.2 software for Vista, then tell me it was a manufacturer problem (am using Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop). They (India) said it was because I didn't have com or lpt ports in my device manager. ???? Never had them before and it worked, so why do I need them now?
Called Toshiba who said they do not have these ports included and haven't had them for some time now - everything runs USB. If the usb end of the sync cable worked well before, sounds like Palm has the problem.
I have just ordered a new hotsync cable, but I don't think this is going to work. I feel like I'm getting a major runaround. Does anyone know anything about this mess?

The digitizer part 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
