Volume is the only function that works on my Dish remote. I can't change channels on my dish remote.


look at the top of the remote. There may be a button to tell the remote to control the Dish box. Those remotes can switch modes if you bump a button.

My Palm Tungsten E2 does not turn on.


Have you tried doing a soft reset? To do a soft reset, use the tip of the stylus to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.

Touch screen will no longer respond to the stylus


First things to try is a normal reset and then a hard reset.


To do a normal reset, press on the reset button on your handheld.


Hard reset is performed differently on different models, check palm website for hard reset instructions:CLICK HERE FOR PALM RESET INFO PAGE


if the touchscreen doesn't work at all, and you can't align or calibrate it, or it presses on wrong spots even after calibrating many times, digitizer (which is the touch part on top of the lcd display) is most likely broken and would need to be replaced. On rare cases reattaching digitizer cable and making sure that the digitizer is clean and intact and properly on its position may solve the issue.

If you are inside warranty the repair may be completely free, contact your dealer or palm.


Outside of warranty, you have 3 options.


  1. Replace digitizer yourself, you can find a replacement from ebay.
  2. Send it to palm for out of warranty repairs, probably around 100usd.
  3. Take it to a local professional who can replace digitizer for you.


Note: In some phones the digitizer may be connected into the lcd in away that it can't be easily replaced. In these cases You will have to replace the whole screen. if the touch is non responsive after the replacement, the issue could be with the connector or then you have a faulty main board

Thanks, let me know if you have any questions and good luck.

When I install my battery I get the Access Powered then Palm.


I have a Treo 700wx with very similar problem that I solved by starting a hard reset by holding down red button while inserting the battery... keep button down until the message comes asking if you are sure you want to do a hard reset.... I hit the space bar to abort it and IT STARTED UP normally ... worth a try... good luck.

Palm Tx problem after hotsync


I had the same issue, the palm is stuck in a loop,
I got mine out of this by pressing the power button while the palm was on the screen where the bar goes across the bottom, it asked me if I wanted to erase all data, I said yes, and it reboot normally, I went thru the setup, and all is o.k.
I did have to try this several times, but it eventually worked. Hope this helps, although it looks like this is an older question. I hope you have resolved it.

After sitting for a while............


I think your phone is going into to keyguard mode. Push the Red power button on the top right of the keyboard. Should come up with a keyguard lock screen at the botton of the screen. Push the center button on the 5-way navigation and you phone should function normally until it goes into to keyguard again. You will find the settings under preferences to either turn keyguard off or to adjust the time on it.

Treo 650 Problem


probably dodgy software conflict. Try taking battery out and leaving for anhour or two then take out sim carrier. Put battery back and see if it starts properly. If not looping put sim in and try to switch phone on. if this works then there is a problem with software you have loaded so switch off back up before you sync. Then once you have synched the phone add back applications one at a time until you find the one that causes the problem. Of course you have to do it all over again once you have found the culprit!

Another cause, if you have attempted to upgrade the firmware, is a failure of the upgrade process. if you can't get this to work I am afraid the phone is bricked and needs to go back to Palm for repair.

Camera won't work at all!! HELP PLEASE!!!!


Bumps can damage the lens.
Try this.. hit the camera into your other palm stiffly. This sometimes will jar what is stuck and may re-set what is wrong. Don't do it too hard. Sometimes it may work also by putting a pad on a table and bumping the edge of the camera carefully to dislodge the jam, if there is one.

This technique has worked for me in some cases.
