    E2 not respond after hard reset. touchscreen not sensitive

  • DedicatedPDA Jun 15, 2008

    My Tungsten e2 fully charges but screen does not work at all to get past the digitizer screen anymore. Dischaged battery and then did a full recharged again thinking it was just the battery. Cannot even get pass the digitizer screen because tapping anywhere on the screen does not work at all. The Power on/ off button, and tapping reset tap works but that's all. Please help as this was a brand new PDA and worked for a year and charges on the Tungsten e2 cradle but is useless now since the digitizer screen.

    Same problem. the bottom 60% of the stylus operated screen is unusable.

    The buttons at the top function normally, the top 40% of the screen seems ok.

    Haven't dropped it or anything... I was working on a simple spreadsheet and the thing suddenly locked up. When I did a Reset, the above symptoms kicked in. Do I need to reload the OS? (is this possible?), or is it a hardware problem?

    I've tried the reset numerous times. I've let it rest for a couple of days, then come back to it. At one point I was able to use the stylus writing application (with limited success) but this function has now ceased to operate. It is really not usable in this state; any advice would be very much appreciated.

    My handheld will not respond to the stylus. It is hard to turn off and on. Is this a battery issue, or just an age issue. It is four years old.

The 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,

Unresponsive touch screen on Palm Tungsten E, buttons work


Often the problem on these is contamination that gets under the edge of the escutcheon which effectively presses the screen out of the usable area preventing entry in the normal area.

Using special screw driver (very small TORX) remove the covers and clean the screen edges. Note one has to gently pry the cover off when ALL screws are out.

A "sometimes works" method is to run a piece of paper or thin cardstock around UNDERNEATH the rim of the escutcheon to clean the contamination.

Note, you MAY need to "recalibrate" the screen after these procedures.

The touch pad of HTC Touch responds intermittently.


hi, its a error in the phone, I had this happen to mine. You will most likely have to sent it away for repair. Just reflash the stock ROM and make sure that you have reflashed the stock SPL if you where using hard SPL and you will be ok this site will help you flash: http://lievenvw.wordpress.com/2008/09/18/howto-flash-your-htc-diamond-or-htc-touch-pro-with-a-custom-rom/ thank you

Try the hard reset procedure.

If still is failing, then the 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

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.

PDAs that use touch screens have a very thin membrane over the screen itself that responds to pressure. If this membrane becomes damaged, which it sounds like what has happened, then you're more than likely going to need to have it replaced. You can try doing it yourself, but it's WAY up on the difficulty factor because of the complexity of the connection to the circuit board on the Tungsten E2.

To determine if your unit is, in fact, actually damaged, you should first make sure that you've syncronized the unit (which may not be possible if you don't have it set to automatically activate HotSync when the device is attached) then do a "hard reset" to restore it to the factory default. To do this, hold the reset button while simultaneously holding the power button for, at least, three seconds. You will get a message asking you to press up on the control pad to reset to factory defaults. Once the unit is reset, try the screen again... touching even the outer areas to see if there's any response. If it reacts, or beeps at all, then it may be an issue of recalibrating (using the "Digitizer") once it's fully reset. If not, it will need repair/replacement.
