If it's not the E2 going to sleep mode ;-), have it checked by a Palm service center .It might just need a new battery. Worst case scenario the charging system is faulty. Have it checked.

Hope that helps. Let me know how you make out.

Have you tried doing a soft reset? To do a soft reset, use the tip of the stylus to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.

Zen V Plus locked up, will not shut off

After 3 1/2 hours, the battery went dead. I waited a couple of minutes, then plugged it into my computer to see if the battery would charge. It started charging. A few hours later I went back to check on it, and it showed a full battery. I disconnected it from my computer, and turned it on. It came on, but the screen just said "Low Battery". I then plugged it back into my computer, and the screen said "Rebuilding Library". I left it for about a 1/2 hour, and it was done. I unplugged it from my computer, turned it on, and it works now!! Hope this helps out everyone else who has the same problem.

Tungsten E2 will not power on

The Tungsten is an excellent PDA
You do have to be careful with how you handle it if you've dropped it too many times or set it down too hard or whatever something inside will get cracked or disconnected.
So you may want to open it up (personally I use a really small screwdriver but there is a kit for 9.95 on that comes with a Shim like tool that is really useful for splitting the Tungsten open because its not easy getting it open and closed)any way open the back up and make sure everything is connected and clean especially the connectors to the screen, battery and USB/charging plugs. You may also need to try charging it overnight. If you haven't run the PDA in a while its going to read a full charge regardless of how much of a charge its actually holding. Also, there are alot of other places to get A PDA repaired do a little research and find a place near you that will repair a PDA. An official Palm repair is almost always going to cost you more than anywhere else.

My e2 frozen on the palm powered logo

Okay here it goes, your going to want to leave it on for however many hours it takes to completely drain the battery then you're going to want to recharge it back to normal charge, and try restarting it again. This will delete completely anything that is keeping it from restarting properly. If you did open up the machine without following "antistatic procedure" you may have fried a component on the board and then your in trouble
you'll need to salvage a board from another tungsten and put it back in your PDA and hope you put it back together right

Garmin ique 3600 won't turn on after battery goes dead

You have to charge the unit before it will start from a dead battery (usually about 10 minutes) before even trying to start the unit.
