Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld
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.
