Question about Palm Tungsten E2 (Multilingual) Handheld
I recently replaced the battery in my PDA. The PDA worked fine until it was time to recharge the new battery. Even with the power cord plugged in, the PDA wouldn't come on. The power cord seemed to be the problem so I replaced it.
With the new power cord, the battery indicator shows that the battery is 100% charged but the PDA comes on but only when the power cord is plugged in. It does not come on without the power cord. Somehow the battery power is not keeping the PDA on.
I have tried both a hard and soft reset with no results. I have also unplugged the battery from the motherboard and plugged it back to no avail.
Any ideas on what might be wrong? Could the battery be faulty?
Thanks for your help!!
The traditional steps for resetting charging problems are:
1) press reset /while/ the power cord is plugged in
2) unplugging the battery for about 30 seconds, then plugging it back in
You have done #2, but I do not know if you have done #1. Try it, then try to recharge again. If that fails then you probably need a new battery. I have found them on eBay before.

The digitizer part 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

you need to uninstall the version of palm desktop that you alredy have and install the 4.14 palm desktop, with the hotsync manager that 4.14 includes you should have no more problems
