Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld

Wrong command when I touch the screen

I have been using my Palm Tungsten E for around 4 years without problems. But since a couple of days, when I touch the screen I cannot go where I want. It brings me elsewhere. Could it be that I need a new battery? Is it that it is no good after 4 years? I hope not.
Many thanks,

Re: Wrong command when I touch the screen

Your battery is perfect no need of changing it.quite often touch screen gradually looses fades out,so u use it till it completely fades out and then get ur display changed.

Unresponsive touch screen on Palm Tungsten E, buttons work

Often the problem on these is contamination that gets under the edge of the escutcheon which effectively presses the screen out of the usable area preventing entry in the normal area.

Using special screw driver (very small TORX) remove the covers and clean the screen edges. Note one has to gently pry the cover off when ALL screws are out.

A "sometimes works" method is to run a piece of paper or thin cardstock around UNDERNEATH the rim of the escutcheon to clean the contamination.

Note, you MAY need to "recalibrate" the screen after these procedures.

Hello my Palm TX will only show the Media and Install applications on my desktop, even though the hot sync says that it transferred successfully. I have all of the applications checked to be transferred...

your palm may just need a new lcd assembly.
it's not all that unusual the they wear out after some time. have you replace the battery lately??
if not I would start there and if you don;t get better operation look at replacing the lcd as for y it's not transferring apps i would think that could be software related and may a product of you software on your computer.

The light on my palm pilot (Z22) screen is dimming.

There enlies your problem. Tungsten longevity. The display is a bulb that is dying. No adjustment. Tungsten won't touch it. It is a SEALED unit. Time to upgrade to an E2. I know alot about them too, including how to make it go internet. If you get an E2 ALL your info will cross over. If you have any questions, please create a new request, make it a premium, request it be for Just_Bobz and I can walk your through most anything you want to know. Please post this as fixya. Be talking to you soon. TY

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.

Palm tungsten E2 touch screen unresponsive

I noticed this problem with mine and solved it by loosening the 4(four) T5 screws in the back. The problem is caused by a swollen battery. When the PDA is left charging for extensive periods of time, as mine was(several months of inactivity and never thought to unplug it), the battery will swell. It's still a good battery and holds a charge, but the increased girth presses on the internal boards of the PDA causing the screen to register a continuous "touch" and therefore seems locked. It's actually waiting for the phantom touch to release so it can act. Unscrewing the fasteners allows the body to expand, thereby releasing the pressure on the screen and letting the phantom touch go away. I'm going to see how well my e2 does without the screws in it at all for a few days. The front and back panels have "clips" molded into them which hold to the side frames, keeping it closed. But the fasteners are there to ensure the PDA doesn't fall apart all together. So, wish me luck. I'll report back in a few days and update this.

Lost operating system

Try an Hard Reset : Press the reset button and hold the Power button. Hard Reset erases everything on the Palm and reinstall PalmOS

Tungsten E2 PDA battery

E2 has a great battery might not be it. Its not easyly replaceable like in some other models.

the battery can be replaced by a professional or by yourself.

The pda should work on charger? does it work while pluged in?
If it doesnt work while its pluged in theres something more seriour wrong with it.

You can try soft and hard reseting.

Instructions can be found in this pdf file

If you cant open pdf files you need to find yourself pdf reader, google pdf reader and get one.

If soft or hardreset have any effect and the device still doesnt work even on charger then it has a hardware issue and I recommend contacting palm or the place where you bought the pda and findout about repairs and possible price, may be high.

good luck and if theres anything else let me know.
