Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

1 Answer

Some of the Buttons on the phone do not work.

I dropped the phone and here are the symptoms: 1) Phone buttons do not work. 2) Center of 5 way navigator does not work. 3) About half of the keyboard is out. I have been able to perform a soft reset. I have not been able to perform a hard reset. Does anyone have any ideas?

Re: Some of the Buttons on the phone do not work.

The best thing you can do is sending it to a professional. By opening the phone you can cause more damage? Just in case, why can't you execute the hard reset? If you don't know how, it's in the user guide -p. 171... FYI about Hard reset "...Performing a hard reset deletes all the entries in your phone. However, you can restore all previously synchronized info the next time you sync (see ?Synchronizing contacts and other information? in the user guide)..."

My phone buttons are not working


Hard Reset:
Either through the menus or:

1. Turn the Moto Q off

2. Hold down the power button (hang up button) and the center key button (the button between the arrows) at the same time.

3. When the verizon logo appears on the device. Let go of both buttons.

4. A screen will come up saying to do a Master Reset. You will hit the left soft key to say yes to confirm.

Your Moto Q is now been hard reset ( Master Reset ) without having to go through the menu of the device.
------------
There's currently no other way to reset your phone without using the buttons so.
If you are having problems with your Q already (since they were just released a few weeks ago), don't be afraid to exchange it for a new one.

The Motorola Q tech support line that I called was 1-800-657-7576.

Iam sooraj using HTC P400i PHONE MY MOBILE NUMBER +919946324460(PREPAID VODAFONE) I CANNOT USE GPRS IN MY MOBLIE PLS HELP TO BROWSE BY GIVING MANUUAL SETTINGS


This will wipe all the storage (not the sd card) and your device will be reset to default settings.
Hard reset (option 1)
  1. Pull out the stylus.
  2. With the device turned on, press and hold the VOLUME DOWN and CENTER buttons, then press the RESET button with the stylus tip.
  3. Continue pressing the RESET, VOLUME DOWN and CENTER buttons until you see this message on the screen:
This operation will delete all your personal data, and reset all settings to manufacturer default. Press ?VolUp to restore manufacturer default, or press other keys to cancel.
Hard reset (option 2)
You can also use Clear Storage to reset your device back to factory default settings.
  1. On the ?TouchFlo3D Home screen, slide to the Settings tab and then tap All Settings or goto Start and press Settings.
  2. On the System tab, tap Clear Storage.
  3. Enter “1234” and then tap Yes.
Hard reset (option 3)
  1. Pull out the stylus.
  2. Turn device OFF.
  3. While pressing the CENTER button, turn the phone on with the POWER button.
  4. Continue pressing the CENTER button until you see this message on the screen:
This operation will delete all your personal data, and reset all settings to manufacturer default. Press ?VolUp to restore manufacturer default, or press other keys to cancel.
This works on at least some Verizon CDMA phones on which option 1 will not work.
Hard reset (option 4)
  1. Pull out the stylus.
  2. With the device turned off, press and hold the VOLUME DOWN and CENTER buttons, then press and hold the POWER button.
  3. Continue pressing the POWER, VOLUME DOWN, and CENTER buttons until you see this message on the screen:
This operation will delete all your personal data, and reset all settings to manufacturer default. Press ?VolUp to restore manufacturer default, or press other keys to cancel. (works with Alltel touch pro)

My curve tracball, grn tele buttons wont work why?


If you have had your phone for under a year, return it and they will give you another phone. If you have insurance on your phone and you have not gotten it wet (VERY IMPORTANT!) take it back and they will give you another one. If you have gotten the phone wet or dropped it etc, the insurance will not cover the phone unless it has been lost.

Otherwise:

There are 2 possible reasons:

1. Hopefully, the phone contacts are just dirty. Unfortunately to find this out, you are going to have to disassmble the phone. Here are instructions.

Make sure that the contacts underneath are clean. Use rubbing alcohol and a QTip to clean the contacts as well as the underneath of the buttons in question. Make sure the contacts on the underside of the buttons are making contact with the main board and are not broken.

2. the other alternative is that there is a short on your main board. There is no recovery from this.

Blackberry got damp in rainstorm and buttons won't work


Moisture has caused a little short in between the contact under th keyboard.

I would recommend to open your phone and gently wipe any moisture under the keyboard..

1) Remove Battery
2) Remove 2 #6 torque screw from rear top of phone
3) Using a prying tool remove base of phone ( where the log of the phone company is
4) Remove 2 more #6 torque screws
5) Remove side chrome cover ( Snaps on)
6) Lever in between front and rear case and pry open gently
7) Wipe gently and re-mount in reverse order..
It should work
