Question about Palm Tungsten E2 Handheld

2 Answers

Won't turn on I press the power button

The E2 was working just fine yesterday, and then later in the afternoon it would not turn on. I pressed all the buttons, sometimes twice to three times in hope a miracle would occur, and nothing happened. I also set it up to charge last night, but did not hear my usual "beep!" when I put in the little charge plug (and yes, the charger was plugged in). This morning it still does not want to turn on. Thanks for any help.

    T 5, I my palm will not turn off, it desplays the PalmPower sign only. I have replaced the battery hoping that this was the problem, still an issue. Whe I reset the palm, I do not hear the tones when it starts up. If I hold down the on off switch it desplays to reset push the up button. I do not know what the "up button" is I have tried all the buttons. Any direction is welcome. BJG

    E2 suddenly dead, unresponsive to buttons or screen taps. Fully charged. Soft reset several times, no response. Weird part is that removing the SD card and reinserting it does produce a sound, nothing else.

    My PDA was on and I was looking through my calendar when it shut off and will not re-turn on. I pressed the power button several times.... it appears dead... no response. I am afraid to push the reset button as I fear it will wipe out my data. I use it frequently and feel bare without it. Any info is appreciated. I will keep messing with it.

    Bought a new E2 and had trouble turning it on. Sometimes it would turn on, sometimes not. Now it won't turn on at all. I tried pushing in the on/off button while pushing the reset button at the same time. No luck.

    Tungsten E2 will not pwer on. I tried soft reset, hard reset and still nothing. The normal beep that I hear when I connect the charger is missing... Called Palm support and they want $149.00 for service... This is very unfair that they do not stand behind their product. I feel lost without my palm..

    I NEED HELP!!!!!!

There is a replacement battery that can be found on ebay for the Tungstern E2. I'm told like any re-chargable battery this one gives out too...

Storm knocked power off late yesterday afternoon....back on this morning. PC won't power up....small green light on back flashing. Modem, router, etc. all back up and running, but PC won't turn...

The first thing to try is to cycle the power. To do this, unplug the power cord from the back of the PC and press and hold down the power button on the PC for 5 seconds. This will completely drain any "stuck" power in the components. Now plug the power back into the PC and try booting. If it still does not come back on after this, then you may be dealing with a blown power supply. You can buy replacement power supplies from your local PC shop for about $50 for a 400watt.
To protect your devices in the future, make sure you have a good surge protector and / or a UPS (uninterrupted power supply).

Sounds like the electronic controls (smart card) are acting up. Try shutting off the power at your fuse box or shut off the circuit breaker for 1 minute them turn the power on again. This fix quite often works on electronic appliances.
