Palm TX wireless used to work, but now it turns on and scans, but never sees ANY access point at all, and I'm right next to my router which is broadcasting its SSID and live in the city with a couple dozen other networks around me. It should see at least a few of them but finds NONE.
Hit up palm live chat support, found out the wireless hardware in my handheld died.....so no wireless for me. I could spend $199 to get it repaired or $229 on an ipod touch with apple that will fix it no matter what with just shipping and handling......so....my solution: get an ipod touch....screw palm.

I have a palm TX and it usually just sits for a minute or two when I use blazer. I have also found out that the pda will always reset itself and it only freezes when it has a lot going on. It stays frozen for a while, but eventually unfreezes. As for the home button, it's probably worn down. My power button and my up button have almost completely stopped working.
I developed the same problem after owning my TX for about a year and a half. I found an acceptable solution by experimenting with the digitizer. Instead of tapping the very center of the bullseye, I tapped off center until I found an acceptable setting where accessing functions anywhere on the screen would work for me.
You might just have to upgrade the desktop software to work with the TX. You can keep your names and addresses but you have to check with each program to see if there compatible or not since the TX uses Palm OS 5. Most of the software available today is written for that operating system.
I don't believe Palm is even supporting the E2 anymore.
Using a computer that is currently able to connect to your router, open a web browser and go to http://192.168.1.1/ or http://192.168.0.1 (whichever works), and log in to your router. The default username and password might be "admin", or just "admin" for the username with no password, or check the manual to find out the default username and password. Once you've successfully logged in, you should be able to get the security settings where you can see what the WEP key is.
It's up to you whether you can live with the damaged screen or not. If you have a service plan, or the repair is cheaper than the replacement, get it fixed. Just my 2 cents. At some point you'll get fed up that you can't see something and you'll chuck the poor thing at a wall and break the rest of it...
PS - An impact that can damage the LCD may have damaged other internal components. It's worth having it looked at sooner rather than later.
I have experienced the exact same thing. No dropping the Palm. No moisture. Just turned it on at work and it had the lines. Fortunately the data was still available for a synch. Now I am ordering a complete LCM and digitizer from PDA Smart.com. See http://www.pdasmart.com/palm-tx-repair-parts.htm for the pricing. It isn't cheap, but I believe it will fix the problem.
Let me know what solution you came up with and how the issue is now.
