SOURCE: Tungsten E and Outlook 2003 sync problem

I also have encountered this: The issues, however, started after our enterprise at work switched the backoffice server from Win2K pro to 2003 server. All users received new Outlook profiles. I know there are hidden services for Palm bundled into the outlook profile so I simply edited the old profile to point to the new server and proceeded as follows: CPU was an HP Pavilion DV1000 laptop with Windows XP Pro SP2 with Outlook 2003 to a Palm Tungsten E PDA. Unit would not synchronize contacts or calendar, producing "Calendar Synchronization Failed" and "Contacts Synchronization failed" errors. Creating entries in outlook contacts and calendar did not show up on the Palm. Creating entries on the PDA did not show up in Outlook. To rule out windows profile corruption, I backed up the users profile data, deleted her windows profile and logged back in to create a new one, copied all of her favorites, documents and desktop information back to the new profile and tried again. No joy. I created a new palm profile to rule out issues with the users original Palm profile being corrupt or damaged. I verified the hotsync app was pointing to the correct palm and outlook profiles. To rule out issues with her outlook profile being corrupt or damaged I backed up her contact and calendar data, wiped that too and created an all new one and re-imported the contact data from a personal folder not connected to an exchange server. No change. I deinstalled and reinstalled the Palm software as well as the conduits for outlook. No change. I downloaded the new and improved conduits that were supposed to fix issues with outlook synch problems. No change. I finally backed up all of the data on her palm by creating a new outlook profile that was not connected to our exchange server at the company but rather a personal folder on the PC and once the data was saved there the data was imported back to the users mailbox. This didn't work but it allowed us to back up all the data on the palm and let us perform some experimentation with formatting the palm clean as a plate and trying anew with her account and profiles - no change. I found the errors only occurred when logged in as the user herself. If I logged in as me and started fresh from a reinitialized palm on her computer it would work. Amazing. I even found that creating a new local user account on the PC and pointing at her own outlook account on the mail server wouldn't work either.. But it would work for my own. After some brainstorming.... I believe that the issue is related to a corrupt e-mail box on the actual mailserver itself rather than an issue with the workstation or the palm itself since if I log in as myself, I can set it up and make it work. I can use a different account. It works. But it ALWAYS fails when we attempt to attach to the users mailbox on the server itself. So, some of these issues could be related to changes or problems on an Outlook mailbox th

Your problem might be a simple one. Hopefully so:

Run a business card around the edges of the screen between the screen and the plastic housing to see if there is any trapped dirt or other debri. If there is, it will hold down that point of the screen and prevent any further input. Be sure to remove anything you find.

Also, sometimes the screen protectors themselves will shift just enough to cause the same issue. Be sure it is not wedged tightly between the screen and case.

I hope this is it and helps!

SOURCE: Palm tungsten E2 touch screen unresponsive

I had the same problem. I saw somewhere that detaching the battery for a while might help. I opened the case (after finally finding a T5 screwdriver...), detached the battery, then plugged it back in. It didn't help, but I realized as I was screwing the case back on that loosening up the screws a bit did restore the functioning of the screen.

I had an issue like that myself. what I did was seperate the casing and remove the battery for about 10 seconds(reset) place the battery back in the unit, snap the case back together and power it back up. That should fix ya

The touchscreen on my Palm Tungsten E2 quit working. I had no luck after cleaning the screen, soft reset, or hard reset. Is there anything else I can try or is it shot?

It is a shot, or you can get someone to open it and check the connections....I'm sure you prob can find a replacement on ebay.

Try the hard reset procedure.

If still is failing, then the digitizer 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

As the previous responder said, the Tungsten E2 cannot read cards over 1 GB. However, there is a wonderful solution available at 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!
