Question about Palm Tungsten E Handheld

2 Answers

My Palm Tungsten E2 got wet when my milk container leaked in my carrying case. Only the bottom of the Palm got wet. However, now my Palm will not turn on, even after charging it. Should I repair it or replace it?

    Thank you for your advice. I am reluctant to remove the battery myself because that requires removing the back of the device and untaping the ribbon cable before I can even get to the battery, none of which I have done before. I would prefer to leave that task to an experienced repairman.

Hello,

the cost of repairs will determine whether or not you should replace it.

Remove the battery of the and keep the Palm Tungsten E2 near any heat so that the milk will dry off the Palm Tungsten E2. Once the liquid drys off completely, the device should turn on again.

Usually, when any liquid enters into stuffs like this, the first thing to do is to remove the battery and dry the device.

But if the Palm Tungsten E2 still refuses to turn on, you can take it to a repairman. If its expensive to repair, you can replace the Palm Tungsten E2.

And if cost of repairs is not expensive you can consider repairing it.

Good luck.

It is a tricky question but for a last try before we take the ultimate step.
If you can open the set carefully or with help, remove, use very lightly cotton bud dipped in petrol to wipe off the milk in the printed main board. Clean up all the sections of the PCB where you notice the milk smear. Use a thin pin to carefully remove the milk particles caught in between the compnents, use an hair dyer to warm up the circuits.Once you are sure that there is no dirt present of the condensed milk-use a magnifying glass- then replace the board back and set.
If you were to do this as soon as the fault appeared it would have solved the issue .You will be lucky if this works, if not exchange with a value for the working parts, the battery charger, display.
Hope this advice helps you to decide.

Palm tungsten E2


As the previous responder said, the Tungsten E2 cannot read cards over 1 GB. However, there is a wonderful solution available at PalmPowerups.com called PowerSDHC. This wonderful little driver will enable the E2 to read cards of any size! At $20.95, it's a bargain. I installed it on my E2 and now I use an 8 GB SDHC chip!

Are the programs on my palm 505m compatable with the tungsten e2? I am thinking to purchase a tungsten e2.


I have purchased 2ea. of the handhelds over time, and used them since 2005. They are reliable. I would recommend you purchase a Aluminum case to protect it.

Unable to hotsync with my computer


Also, if you have a new Tungsten E2 and there is no important data, I would hard reset it and then when you sync it, select the old profile of the previous Palm to see if that works.

The new Palm you have, is it a Tungsten E2 as well?

The profiles don't always carry over between different models.
