My Tungsten T5 battery will not hold a charge. The battery was just replaced this week, however it will still not stay charged. I can charge it up to 100% but within and hour there is no battery life. An adapter was plugged into the headphone jack and when it was unplugged the PDA arched from the jack and the battery has been an issue ever since.
Do you have any idea why this is? Replacing the battery did not make a difference.
Thanks for your help.

When you see the first screen (the orange one) hold the UP button as the bar moves across the bottom of the screen. Let go right before the screen goes to the silver logo. If it continues and opens Prefs, then you need to delete the program causing it to reboot.
If that doesn't work, do a Hard Reset. A Hard Reset will erase everything on your T5, so only do it if you have to. Hold the Power Button while you push the reset button. Continue with the instructions to finish erasing your device.
Hi, The best thing to do is to go to the free palm chat service
they offer. I have used this and it worked good for me. Here is a link to the
free chat service. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a Palm
Chat. From there click on the link that says Chat Now and follow the online
prompts. Best wishes...I hope this will help you.
Amazingly prone to static electricity. Because Tungsten was smart enough to make the battery a solder in (yeah right), service on them is so bad, even Tungsten won't fool with it. Can you say paperweight?
I noticed this problem with mine and solved it by loosening the 4(four) T5 screws in the back. The problem is caused by a swollen battery. When the PDA is left charging for extensive periods of time, as mine was(several months of inactivity and never thought to unplug it), the battery will swell. It's still a good battery and holds a charge, but the increased girth presses on the internal boards of the PDA causing the screen to register a continuous "touch" and therefore seems locked. It's actually waiting for the phantom touch to release so it can act. Unscrewing the fasteners allows the body to expand, thereby releasing the pressure on the screen and letting the phantom touch go away. I'm going to see how well my e2 does without the screws in it at all for a few days. The front and back panels have "clips" molded into them which hold to the side frames, keeping it closed. But the fasteners are there to ensure the PDA doesn't fall apart all together. So, wish me luck. I'll report back in a few days and update this.
I suspect that you're in fact holding a Palm TX and not a T5 as the T5 does not have WiFi. If you're using the Palm SD WiFi adaptor, do a hard reset without the card.
(hold down the ON/OFF button whilst using the reset pin to press the reset button. You'll be asked if you are sure you wish to reset. You'll then be prompted to choose the language caliberate the screen etc..)
After that. Go and download all the updates and drivers from Palm Web site.
