How to Replace the Battery in Your Palm Tungsten E2 PDA. Aaron Kelly ... for battery replacement. Includes one year money back guarantee!
Palm backups are located in the following directory: C:\Program Files\Palm\username>\ED\Backup\
When you HotSync a PDA
that has undergone a hard reset, HotSync will compare the two devices. When it
sees that the PDA is empty, it will attempt to reload any backup that exists on
the PC. Once this data is reloaded, the PDA will ask to do a soft reset. This is
simply a restart of the device and doesn't affect any of the newly installed
data. This returns the PDA to working order, with all the data and programs
functioning as they were before.
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.
As the previous responder said, the Tungsten E2 cannot read cards over 1 GB. However, there is a wonderful solution available at PalmPowerups.com called PowerSDHC. This wonderful little driver will enable the E2 to read cards of any size! At $20.95, it's a bargain. I installed it on my E2 and now I use an 8 GB SDHC chip!
I was reading about this guy who'll do it for alot less here's the URL to the page
If you wanted to do it yourself youll need to get a PDA repair kit for 9.95 from pdasmart.com and pop it open (4 torx screws and use a shim tool to pry it open , be careful) and follow anti static procedures ( touch a metal object frequently ) once open check the contacts for the speaker and while your at it the head phone jack if they look fine they may need cleaning. use your favorite electronics cleaner and clean them. This is only if your lucky you'll probably need to replace one/both by placing a soldering iron and melting the contacts off and getting a replacement part and soldering it carefully in place, you'll get a replacement from another broken T|E \ T|E2 or from a PDA replacements parts store of your choice
a refurbished T|X at PDAsmart will cost you $199 if I were to spend any money it wouldn't be at the Palm repair shop
E2 has a great battery might not be it. Its not easyly replaceable like in some other models.
the battery can be replaced by a professional or by yourself.
The pda should work on charger? does it work while pluged in? If it doesnt work while its pluged in theres something more seriour wrong with it.
You can try soft and hard reseting.
Instructions can be found in this pdf file http://www.palm.com/us/support/handbooks/tungstene2/en/maintain.pdf
If you cant open pdf files you need to find yourself pdf reader, google pdf reader and get one.
If soft or hardreset have any effect and the device still doesnt work even on charger then it has a hardware issue and I recommend contacting palm or the place where you bought the pda and findout about repairs and possible price, may be high.
good luck and if theres anything else let me know.
