Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld

1 Answer

Tungsten E2 will not power on

My Tungstern E2 will not power on. I tried charging, soft reset, hard reset
and still nothing. I had a full charge when I turn it off, then later that day I went to pwer it on and it was completly dead. When I hooked the charger to it normally I would hear a beep, but I hear nothong at all. I called Plam support and the only thing they would was to send it in for service along with $149.00, I paid $249.00 for it in April 2006 and don't feel it's right to pay another $149.00. Help!!! Help!!! what can I do?

The Tungsten is an excellent PDA
You do have to be careful with how you handle it if you've dropped it too many times or set it down too hard or whatever something inside will get cracked or disconnected.
So you may want to open it up (personally I use a really small screwdriver but there is a kit for 9.95 on PDAsmart.com that comes with a Shim like tool that is really useful for splitting the Tungsten open because its not easy getting it open and closed)any way open the back up and make sure everything is connected and clean especially the connectors to the screen, battery and USB/charging plugs. You may also need to try charging it overnight. If you haven't run the PDA in a while its going to read a full charge regardless of how much of a charge its actually holding. Also, there are alot of other places to get A PDA repaired do a little research and find a place near you that will repair a PDA. An official Palm repair is almost always going to cost you more than anywhere else.

My tungsten E won't turn on. If I do a soft reset it turns on then off immediately. I just charged it yesterday!


After back up your date you may perform hard reset, if issue still persists you can be sure that battery is no longer giving good performance. So you may consider replacing the battery.
If you need further assistance please post.
Good Luck

Todo a hard reset, First press and hold the power button, while holding the power button use the tip of the stylus to gently press and release the reset button. wait for the logo to appear then release the power button.



when you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your hand held press up on the 5way navigator to finish the reset

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.

My e2 frozen on the palm powered logo


Okay here it goes, your going to want to leave it on for however many hours it takes to completely drain the battery then you're going to want to recharge it back to normal charge, and try restarting it again. This will delete completely anything that is keeping it from restarting properly. If you did open up the machine without following "antistatic procedure" you may have fried a component on the board and then your in trouble
you'll need to salvage a board from another tungsten and put it back in your PDA and hope you put it back together right

Palm Tungsten E2 won't work after power cord is removed.


The traditional steps for resetting charging problems are:
1) press reset /while/ the power cord is plugged in
2) unplugging the battery for about 30 seconds, then plugging it back in

You have done #2, but I do not know if you have done #1. Try it, then try to recharge again. If that fails then you probably need a new battery. I have found them on eBay before.
