Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld

1 Answer

Stripped Screws I bought a used Tungsten E2 years ago. The power switch has finally come loose from the motherboard (known problem) and in trying to remove the back cover using the T5 that came with my sewing machine repair kit I find two of the screws are stripped. How the heck do I get them out without damaging my unit?

My Tungsten E2 is not charging. It has been with me for almost 4 years now. What seems to be the problem? This is not the first time though I encountered the same problem. 3 years ago I encountered the...


I had symptoms with my Tungsten E2 where the charging icon would show up when the charger was connected, however, it didn't seem to charge, because when it was removed from the charger hours later, it would still show the same percentage of charge (as read by touching the battery icon while in the favorites screen).
Tried resetting the unit, reconnecting multiple times, different charge cables, and it was always the same.
I thought it might be time for a new battery, so to check it out, I got my T-5 Torx driver, removed the four case screws, and carefully pried open the case from the top (the bottom has hooks that have to be disengaged by sliding the case half downwards after they're separated from the top)
Measured the battery and it seemed to be okay, and after unplugging the battery connector and reconnecting it, it worked normally again. Charged quickly back up to 100%, and the battery is fine.
It looks like something may get out of sync with the battery charge circuit, and by simply unplugging the battery to allow it to reset, it restored operation, no replacement battery needed.

Tungsten e2 won't power up


Please follow the steps to isolate the problem:

1. Make sure that the charger is working.
2. Try using different charger just to make sure.
3. Try using different battery.

If the phone works using different battery, you need to replace your old battery, but if not, this phone needs repair.

Plug you E2 into your PC for 8 hours to slow charge. Press reset button on back and later in life your E2 will come on by itself.

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.

Both PalmOne E2 Units No Power


Your problem is more common than you think. Especially being a potential battery issue. Can you say a bad case from factory. Go to EBAY and order 2 more batteries. You are lucky they plug in.

Memory Card


check if your e2 can handle a 2gb mem card, most unit made three years ago cant handle even a 1gb mem card. check your unit capability first before buying a new mem card . [:0)
