I hate to refer you somewhere else but YouTube has some great step by step "how to's"
I have a Palm TX and have taken it apart several times to replace broken screens or damaged digitizers. Let me give you a word of caution. Take your time......
This can make the difference between a good 30 minute job or a bad 20 minute job.
Since the button stays depressed it should be an easy fix. You'll have a couple screws on the back (none are under the TX label) and then you'll need a soft pry tool to pop the back panel off. That should expose the power button. In cases like these one of two things usually happen:
1. Excessive grime from fingers stick the button in the down position. Clean it off with a Q-tip and you're good to go.
2. The button has been struck so hard that the switch has been broken from its mount, in which case, you'll have to replace the switch if it can't simply be bent back into place.
Either way good luck! It's not too difficult if you are handy at these kinds of things but again...don't get in a hurry! I speak from experience! :-P
You can prise off the clear screen with a small thin flat-head screwdriver or the like, give it and clean and replace the clear screen again. If it loses its stickiness when you take it off, then dab a couple of drops of glue along the edge before replacing.
Search youtube for Palm TX Digitizer Replacement and Palm TX Take Apart Direction. If you think you can do it, or know someone who can, you can order a replacement digitizer on ebay for from somewhere like www.pdaparts.com.
Before ordering the part, you may want to start by opening the palm and cleaning the connecting ribbon cable contacts to make sure that a loose cable or oxidation has not caused your problem.
I don't know how much technical skill you have, but I had the same problem and the warrenty had expired. I thought it might be a battery problem. To make a long story short I unpluged the internal battery and pluged it back in and the system came on.
