I500 hard reset and stuck in Tap screen set up

I did a hard reset on my i500 and the screen is now stuck in the tap the center of the target mode with the stylus. No matter how many times I keep tapping the center of the target it will not get out of this screen. I've tried several resets and hard resets and it keeps reverting back to this mode. I am not able to turn myphone on to make calls because of this. Any ideas?

I did a hard reset and I can't gt the device to go past the screen tap on the center of the target. I hit it dozens of times and it just keeps asking me to hit the center of the target


Disconnect Treo from charger, if connected.Remove the battery cover and then the battery.Press and hold the UP arrow button on the 5 way navigational key of the device.

While holding the UP arrow button, reinsert the battery.When the second screen named "Access Powered" appears, release the UP button.Then, the next screen will ask you to set the date and time. That finishes the process of Warm Reset.

My tungsten E2 will not go out of the "tap center of the target" mode. Can this be fixed ? Thanks for the help.


Hello, cleme_z. I would be happy to help! Unfortunately, I too have had this issue with a pda of mine (not the same brand as yours), and the reason why my pda did this (and probably why your tungsten is doing this) is because your touch screen is broken. You screen cannot recognize nor truly feel touches, so your pda is stuck in "tap center of target mode," waiting for a response from your touch screen. The best thing to do is to contact the manufacture and tell theme about this issue. They might even allow you to send them your pda and replace it for free if they discover that you might have a slightly defective screen. I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please ask!

Touch screen would not respond


HI,
Here is a link to get you to the Palm support page. You can do a phone call to the but it will cost you $25. There is also a chat feature and that looks like it is free so hopefully that will help.
Best wishes.

Palm Tungsten E2 stuck on Tap the center of the target


The digitizer part 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

Best regards,

The screen seems locked in one mode


im not to sure if this works with what u got but it should. soft reset: pop out the battery from it wait abit ant then pop it back in turn it on if it still does this then..... hard reset: look at the back of the phone for a little round button to push use like a paper clip or pen, hold it down and the power button down as well until the device powers on. u will loose all ur data on the phone but it shouuld work. if it doesnt then its ur hardware not the software. somewhere they repair cell phones like celltek would be able to for good price.

The 'target' section is stuck and I cannot get on to the Home icon, i.e. where it says 'tap exactly on the center of the target' - when I do that, the target just jumps about but I cannot return to the...


Hi:You try to tap at least the four or five times in the white screen?? When you want to go to the main menu, press and hold the center button.

Touch screen problem


Change the LCD (and not the touch screen) is what i've done and it's very easy.
If you had it apart you should have seen the connector of the screen.
Just look for a LCD on ebay, for example, and you'll see what the connector looks like.
Changing the touch screen is surely more complicate as you have to unglue the touch screen.
So as i've found a LCD for a quite cheap price i did buy it and change it, everyting is fine now.

Flashing Display on Samsung i500


I have had the same problem... twice.  First time I held down some keys just trying desperately to get it to come back to life.  Well I hit the right combination for a hard reset.  So I lost all my data.
Second time I took my phone into the Sprint Store across from Sprint HQ in KC.  The only thing they knew to do was a hard reset. I'm suspicious since I was having trouble removing my battery the second time, that my battery's position may have caused some type of short.  Still searching. KC Ron
