Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

1 Answer

Broken ringer I bought a new ringer online for $28 including shipping. Now I can't seem to get the phone entirely apart to replace the ringer. How can I remove the grey rubber cover over the antenna? I think that might do the trick

I discovered that I there was yet one more screw hiding under the little sticker near the antenna. Got that off, took the screw out, took the antenna off and the whole back came off fairly easily. The dead ringer (couldn't resist) was in the back casing. It's has a sticky backing so I pried that out, put the other one in and closed everything back up. Much to my delight, after having no sound from my phone for 18 months, I now have my ringer working again. And I saved myself $200!

Speaker for Speakerphone Broken? Where/How to fix?


It is clear that your speakerphone (which we call ringer) is not functioning, there it's not a big problem, you can fix it if you know how to open these kinds of gadgets, but i don't recommend, just go to a mobile repairing shop and tell them the problem, they fix it by replacing the ringer for you. They will charge you for the new ringer and for servicing, but be careful since there're many technicians who just want to charge very high amount without much condition but telling this and that.. so I recommend you to visit the shop you know before or your friend knows.. Good luck.

White screen on my tmobile wing


There are basically three options to this problem:
  1. Buy a new phone. This is what T-Mobile will tell you to do and it'll be expensive (probably $300 or so).
  2. Buy a new screen yourself (I'd look on E-Bay for the best price) and then fix it yourself. There are service manuals available online. This is the best option if you are mechanically inclined and have a few hours to spare.
  3. You can send your phone to a professional repair service to do the repair for you. This is the best option if you aren't comfortable tearing apart and putting your phone back together or just don't want to spend the time doing it.
If you decide to go with option 3, I actually own a small company called Jet City Devices that does T-Mobile Wing screen replacements for a lot less than a new phone. The whole repair process usually takes less than a week (from the time you mail it out until you receive it back).

Help me please!!!!!!


If the entire phone still works (make and receive calls, recharges, etc), then you probably just need a new screen. Two basic options:

  1. Buy the screen and do the replacement yourself. Usually about $50 or a little more (depends on your shipping and if they include the tools). You can find videos online for how to do the repair.
  2. Have someone do the replacement for you. When my phone broke, the following place did the repair: http://www.mobile-device-repair.com. They had it fixed in under a week, did a great job, and it was just $75 total. A lot cheaper than buying a new phone and I didn't have to worry about screwing it up by doing it myself.
Hope that helps.

T-mobile Wing speaker problem


I had this happen after around 14 months of usage. Mind you, I changed the registry value in the first week I had it so that the speaker volume was increased to a hearable level, so perhaps I just burned out the speaker after having it on high for so long.
Anyway, I went ahead and bought the replacement part (HTC Wing P4350 Loud speaker ringer buzzer parts OEM USA) from eBay for US$8 including shipping, and I put it in the other week and it worked fine! I was so happy! You need the appropriate star mini screwdriver (my friend had one), and you undo the four screws after taking off the battery cover and battery. Plus you need to be Ok with unscrewing through that little Void sticker on one of the screws. After that, the enclosure where the speaker is will lift out, and the speaker itself will come out as well, it just sits in there connecting with the contacts on the board. Anyhow, I took my old one out, plopped the new one in, and put it back together. Turned it on, and voila! My speaker was working again.
In case it helps, when mine went out I noticed some crackling coming from it off and on for about a day before, and then on the day it went out the crackling was loud and distorted the music I was playing. After a couple of minutes it stopped playing altogether, restarts didn't help.
At least this problem is fixable, but first determine whether it is the speaker or a driver issue. Try to play a file in Windows Media Player - if it looks like it's playing, and there is no sound (and the Windows Media Player sound is turned up AND your phone volume is turned up), then it's most likely your speaker. Good news, you can fix it. Good luck!
