Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld

Palm Tungsten E2, hangs while resetting

I think I've dropped my Tungsten too many times.

The unit hangs after resetting via the 'reset' button on back. It hangs with 'PALM' in the display window. I thought the battery was dying, so I replaced that - no difference. Previously, the on/off button stopped working, but I can turn the unit on with any of the 4 buttons at the bottom, and the unit was configured to turn off after (I forget) minutes of non-use.

The on/off button is secondary. I am primarily interested in being able to get the unit to power up normally.

Thanks,

How do i reset my palm back to factory settings


According to the manual a hard reset will erase all of the user data on the device and restore it to the factory settings. On the Palm Tungsten E2, you can do this by holding down the power button while pressing the reset button on the back of the device. When you release the power button, you will then confirm the hard reset by following the directions on the screen.

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:

do a soft reset, press the reset button on the back of the unit, if you still have the stock stylus, the top will unscrew to expose a reset pin, to allow you to access button. Press the button, screen should sow a restart, then your starting point.
