    I suspect it was a hard reset, accessed through a small hole on the rear.

    Thanks for your help. I'll try contacting Palm.

This doesn't sound like a software issue to me.. After the one or two seconds does the display continue to stay on with a blank screen or does it just turn off? Coz the white screen usually suggests that only the backlight is on and the LCD panel is dead. I would also try removing the battery and then put it back in after 2 mins and turn it on.. Please try the suggested steps and provide the requested info so that I can see you through this..

Sai.

You may need a repair if the reset does not work. Since it is still under warranty I would call the company and get it done.

Hey,

Screen going white after few seconds of powering on is a hardware fault, in sometimes its possible to get the unit to turn on and function for a while but most likely the problem will repeat itself.

Hard and warm Reset
Press the reset button and hold the Power button, this will perform a hard reset.

Also attempt a warm reset: Press the reset button and hold the up navigation button until palm is on the screen.


If the above has no effect or the problem repeats itself, here is the palm repairs page.
http://www.palm.com/id/support/contact/repairs.html

As you device is only 6 months old it should be covered by the 1 year warranty assuming you haven't taken the device apart, please read more on their warranty and repair pages.

Use the above page to contact palm for repairs. The above website is for indonesia, I've been unable to locate the US version of that page.

Please use live chat / repair to contact palm let them know where you are located etc.
Other option would be to contact your dealer, but your dealer may refer you back to palm.

The touchscreen on my Palm Tungsten E2 quit working. I had no luck after cleaning the screen, soft reset, or hard reset. Is there anything else I can try or is it shot?


It is a shot, or you can get someone to open it and check the connections....I'm sure you prob can find a replacement on ebay.

Dropped Palm now only displays blank white screen


You can try a hard reset, but you will have to sync before and after as it will go to factory starting point.

Push the reset and power button at the same time, it should ask "are you sure", when it restarts you will have to go through the set up as if it was new.

Hope this helps.

I have also had the same problem, and I discovered that it may be caused by a little sensor in the headphone jack which enables the external speaker. Sometimes it gets stuck in the "off" position. Try plugging in and removing the headphones, that should solve the problem.
