I imagine you've sorted it out by now, if not I know there use to be a place in UK (I'm in Australia) where you could order a ribbond with the full work out displayed on their site on how to go about it with photo etc. Actually there were more than one site. We ordered two ribonds and revived our psions, now only one, mine is still working but recently as per my post won't work on batteries although it shows there are ok.
Good luck

it is a problem with the display IC of your mobile , not with the screen . its minor and a warranty will cover it up . or if u don't have the warranty get it repaired at a local mobile store.

Hi,
It sounds like the battery might be dead. If I were you I would take advantage of the free chat that palm provides to their customers. I have used it in the past always with good results. I am including a link to that page. Best wishes.

Pin in charge hole got loose then disappeared


Unfortunately this is a common problem, it can be repaired but unless you are an electronics technician I suggest you take it to the service provider if it's still under warranty. If not there will probably be a small fee. It may not be worth the cost to repair it so you may just want to replace the unit. Good luck

Hello, have a Palm 755p Treo screen just keeps flashing


There are multiple reasons for the phone to go into an endless loop.

Fix #1 - Soft Reset - Take out the battery. On the back of your phone, pop the cover off, remove battery, place battery back in and it will show each screen once and power on normally.

Fix #2 - Hard Reset - To do a hard reset, hold the power button while you replace the battery and then release it when the Palm logo appears.

Fix #3 - Hammer

Palm Tungsten E2


The top digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

You can find digitizer parts in ebay or other on-line companies, at reasonable prices.

Regarding the labor cost, depending of the repair shop you choose, it may be cheap or expensive.

Also, if you have minimum experience and skills in fixing electronics, you can try it. really is not so difficult, and minimum set of tools are needed for it

Best regards,

Is this a battery problem?


If it's not the E2 going to sleep mode ;-), have it checked by a Palm service center http://www.palm.com/us/support/contact/repair.html .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.

Either you have a dead battery, or you have somethig wrong with the circuit board. if you can take it apart and can solder then fine, but if not, i reccomend visiting an electronics repair store. Good luck!

EM 500 RIBON CABLE TORE how to replace?? HELP!!


It might be possible to repair the tear. You'd need to bond a plastic backing to the back of the ribbon to support it. Clean off the front layer to expose the torn conductor ends then paint a thin strip of conductive epoxy or car heater matrix repair along each of the flat wires. Finish off by covering (when set) with scotch tape. Everything needs to be completely squeaky clean (use alcohol) before you start.
