Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld

1 Answer

My touch screen is no longer working on my Tungsten E2

The buttons and everything else work fine, but my touchscreen stopped working. It doesn't respond to my stylus at all. This happened when I first got it and my dad called the Palm people and they told him what to do over the phone. It just involved pushing certain buttons; it was a procedure. Well, this is five months later we don't remember the procedure and it is no longer covered under warranty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Same problem as the others except when I do a hard reset it starts working again but is not aligned eg the stylus is registering about 2 or 3mm below and I cannot get to the keyboard. When I go to preferences and select touchscreen I cannot get out of it without resetting and ending up with the touchscreen not working again.

    For weeks I have had to touch the entry above the one I'm trying to select. This morning I tried to reset the touchscreen and could never get out of the screen. After a soft reset, the stylus just didn't work at all.

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.

Best regards,

My palm e2 screen brings a frozen screen even after reset and no button whatsoever works, it can reset but freezes on the screen again,that is 0 alerts. even the power button does not work, only reset,...


You can try doing a hard reset. A hard reset will delete everything on your device. All your data will be deleted, and formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a hard reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything. Here is the link for directions for the Hard Reset:

The touchscreen on my Palm Tungsten E2 quit working. I had no luck after cleaning the screen, soft reset, or hard reset. Is there anything else I can try or is it shot?


It is a shot, or you can get someone to open it and check the connections....I'm sure you prob can find a replacement on ebay.

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

One way around this problem is to touch the "DataVis Sheet To Go" (top left corner in black) icon and from there go to "Edit" and then "Keyboard".

Palm Tungsten E/E2 digitizer - fragile?


Palm one is in trouble because of problems like this. They don't work on it but you can buy parts to try it yourself. I never had the problem myself but similar conditions. I do windows based units now.

Touchscreen no longer works


Well watch this video and after you follow the directions get the screen and find the glass like cover and remove it from the screen bend it in a very lightly way, then put it back on and put the PDA back together and BAM.
