Tungsten E2 - clock drifts

A few weeks out of the box, clock started drifting by large amounts of time (5-10 minutes per day) until it's hours off the correct time. Tried hard and soft reboots, reloaded software multiple times. Contacted Palm who would only recommend off the shelf solutions that in all cases did not address this problem. Gave up and unit is sitting in it's box, abandoned.

Nothing they did and nothing you did will fix it. They timer inside is imperfect and will never stabilize. Mine didn't either. Used my phone for my watch

Tungsten E: difficulty starting and turning off

PalmOne had a manufacturing issue in the Tungsten E and E2 PDA versions.

Bottom line is the On/Off switch is not properly soldered (enough soldering amount) so is easy that breaks the soldering joint of the switch to the main board.

The repair requires to open the PDA, remove very carefully the mainboard, and put straight (vertical) and re-solder the switch again.

It is needed a minimum of tools for it (soldering iron, torx screwdriver, wire soldering, plastic pry tool), and some skills and experience in fixing electronics.

Also, you can get with a radio or TV repair techniocian, and ask specifically to resolder such On/Off switch.

Best regards,

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.

Pointing errors

the program your looking for is called "digitizer" you'll need to tap the application called "prefs" in your main screen, then there will be a lot of choices one of them will be "digitizer" and you'll want to tap that option

My Palm Tungsten E2 crashes at least once each day. Is it possible to upload amended firmware to stop this from happening?

Perhaps some software you have on the device is the cause of the crashes. Remove everything and install them back one at a time.
