Replacing the battery should work. I had the same problem and ordered one from pdaparts.com (the actual lynk is http://pdaparts.com/ and the product code you want is PA1547 (you can filter your search by Palm Treo - left side of the page).
You will also need a Torx Set (5 & 6). The replacement instructions can be observed in http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GHT&Category_Code=_treo_600_battery
Hope it helps

My Phone dont want to charge


Try to turn off and on the phone. If that still does not work try to use a different charger. Sometimes even if the light is on the charger does not charge.

How can i turn off the annoying LED light?


There are several possibilities. One is a little freeware application called LEDOff. Just Google "palm ledoff" and go to the first site you see. It says it's for the Treo 600 but it works great on my 650.

The other solution is to put some kind of barrier over the light, like electrical tape. If you're feeling adventurous, you could even open the case and put the tape on the inside so it doesn't ruin the look of your device.

I can't for the life of me figure out why the Treo designers used such a bloody bright LED. I mean, it's like a laser! If you try to look at the screen when it's charging you'll likely get a headache. But the utility I mentioned even turns off the charge light.

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger


Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

Palm Treo 680 does not power up


ive had my phone for almost 2 months now. My old treo 680 didnt even turn on... this was a replacement. Now it seems i'm having the same problem again where the phone froze and now it wont even turn on. Its really starting to piss me off now and if anyone can give any advice besides "taking out the battery" or "hard and soft resets" it would be great.

Problem Getting My Palm 600 To Recharge


Try plugging the Treo in to recharge and then at the same time poke the reset hole in the back of it. This should reset the charging mechanism in the Palm. Let it sit for a hour or so and then try powering it back on.

Like dead


Could be the power connector on the bottom is worn out. I have sent mine back to Palm to have this repaired, it seems to be a common problem at the moment this question has nbeen posted a lot recently

Battery indicator/charging defect


Do you have a Treo desktop charger/sync cradle where you can drop the battery into the charger?

My treo is doing hard reset automatically


try performing a battery reset..it will reset the internal radio and the charging circuitry..only problem here is that u need an AC charger to switch the phone back on. this will wipe out all data u may want to back it up before trying this option heres how to do it Battery Disconnect Reset Treo 600 only A battery disconnect reset is a last resort step you can take to cut battery power, wipe all data, and regress a Treo 600 to its factory-fresh state. It only works on a Treo 600 smartphone. Important: A battery disconnect reset will erase everything on your smartphone, and also reset the wireless radio and disconnect the internal battery. All your data will be removed, and your formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a battery disconnect reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything. You won't be able to turn your Treo 600 back on until you connect it to a power adapter, so do not perform this type of reset without your Treo 600 charger and a power source. HotSync note: Some third-party applications change the way your handheld backs up data. Other third-party applications do not back up data. If you have third-party software on your device, please contact the developer to learn what components are backed up during a HotSync operation, and if HotSync conduits are altered. Any data not backed up will be lost. To perform a battery disconnect reset: 1. Disconnect your Treo 600 from the AC charger. 2. Hold down the K and Backspace keys simultaneously. (Note: for French AZERTY keyboard, press K and M; for other language overlays, please refer to the customer support for your region) 3. While continuing to hold down the K and Backspace keys, press the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device (where's the reset hole?). 4. Finding it hard to do? Good. We made this type of reset very awkward to perform, so that it would not happen by accident when your Treo 600 is jostling around in a pocket or bag. Sorry for the inconvenience. You might want to ask a friend to lend a hand if you find it too difficult to do by yourself. 5. Continue holding down K and Backspace. The screen will flash white briefly, and then go black. Release K and Backspace after this happens. Your Treo will appear to be "dead" and the screen will not turn on. If you see any activity ? such as the screen turning back on ? the reset was performed incorrectly; try again 6. To revive your Treo 600, connect it to the AC charger and plug the charger into a socket. The screen will stay blank for several seconds (as long as half a minute), then it will turn on. The LED will glow solid red, indicating charging. 7. Finally, follow the steps for recovering after a hard reset (a battery disconnect reset is an extended type of hard reset).
