Dark area on view screen

Starting to get a dark spot on the screen and have to move it around to read it. I called a store and they said it was left in the sun ( it hasn't ) or there's moister in it. If its moist is there a way to dry it out? Thanks.

In settings, check display setting for brightness. See if the auto brightness is selected. If so de-select and try. Another thing to check is the battery saving mode !

Palm Pre Plus tips and tricks

1. Soft Reset Hold the power button and cycle the ringer button on/off three times.

"Orange button" "Sym" and letter "R". It's like a Ctrl Alt Del for the Pre.

Another way is go into "Device Info" --> "Reset Options" At this point you have three choices:

a. Soft Reset -restarts it

b. Partial Erases -erases all installed apps and their data but not personal files stored in Mass USB drive mode.

c. Full Erease -Everything Partial erase does and personal files stored on USB partition.

3. Save Battery Life


- Log out of AIM (There is some problem with AIM draining battery power that Palm is currently fixing. And plus, who really uses AIM these days?)

- Change your email settings. Note: each email account can be set-up in a different way.

Top on the upper left corner of the screen in the email program.
Open the Preferences menu.
Set frequently used accounts to check every 15 minutes.
Set rarely used accounts to Push.

- Turn on WiFi. (It's weird, but the Palm Pre has better battery life with WiFi than with 3G.)

4. Gestures

Swipe A horizontal gesture on the touchscreen or the gesture area. The most common swipe is "back", which is a swipe from the center of the phone to the left in the gesture area.
Drag Drag upward from the gesture area onto the touch screen to bring up the Quick Launch menu when you are in an application.
Scroll Speed sensitive. Tap or drag the screen while scrolling to stop.
Zoom Double tap on an image or area, or use two fingers in a pinch-like fashion.

5. Turn On Advanced Gestures

Go to "Screen & Lock" app
Turn on "Advanced gestures" setting

The advanced gestures allow you to scroll in between apps while they are open in fullscreen mode. Simply swipe from the far right the far left, or from the far left to the far right, in the gesture area to move between apps without going to the Card View first. The back gesture still goes from right to left in the gesture area, but it takes a shorter swipe from right to left (halfway).

6. Tap the Battery


Tap the battery icon to see an exact percentage of remaining battery life, the date, WiFi options, Bluetooth settings, and Airplane Mode settings.

7. Uncapitalize a Letter

When typing, the Pre autocapitalizes letters where appropriate (beginning of a sentence, "I", etc...). To undo this, simply press backspace once. Rather than deleting the letter, it will change it to lower case. Pressing backspace again, obviously, will delete the letter.

8. Pre Recovery Tool Leak

This Pre hack applies mainly to the super tech-savy guys out there, particularly the developers. The "WebOS Reset Doctor" has leaked out (including the 195 MB webOS root). This means that you can now view the Pre's "hidden" code, which means you (or some really skilled developers somewhere) can find and tweek some hidden Pre features.

9. Sync the Palm Pre with iTunes

Simply connect the Palm Pre to your Mac or PC, select "Media Sync", and iTunes will auto-launch. You can then choose which DRM-free media files to transfer.

10. Use your Pre as a Mass Storage Drive

Simply connect your Pre to your Mac or PC with a USB cable, and the Pre will appear as a drive on your computer desktop. Drag and drop files into the Pre, or drag files from your Pre to the computer.

11. Solve Post-Shut Freeze


Numerous people have reported that when you close the screen too hard, the phone becomes black yet backlit, and the only way out is to reboot. Turns out there is a problem with battery, because it becomes loose when you slide the screen down hard. Simply put a piece of paper on the top part of the battery between the battery and the phone.

12. Konami Code


This one is funny. To access the "secret" Palm Pre dev mode, simply type the famous Konami cheat code right from the launcher screen of your Pre. The code is "upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart". This opens something called "Developer Mode Enabler". This was discovered due to the leaked ROM (number 9 on this list). This allows you to connect the Pre to a computer running Palm's Mojo SDK for webOS, which allows you to do some dev stuff.

Speaker not working

Starting from the home screen, push the soft options button (lower left) - Then Choose Settings.

From there, click on the "My Device" tab
Click on "Sound"
Click on "Volume"

Are all sliders moved to the right side of the screen? if not, do so. This will hopefully solve the problem

My samsung galaxy gio had a dark spot on the top left corner of the screen, this has slowly spread now covering about half my phone. Has anyone else had this issue and know why?

my dear,
it is not about some one having the same issue,
the problem is that, something pressed that particular spot on the screen maybe you weren't aware.
thats how it will keep spreading out till the whole screen goes blank, just because they are all connected.
all you need is to replace the screen with a new one,
visit a samsung office or showroom near you.

Led screen was getting dark and dark how can I solve this problem? H/W or Software problem?


You probably need to replace the flex cable on your phone. You can find them on ebay
for around $10 and do it yourself. Or most cell stores will charge $30-$40 on average.

There is a thin plastic lens that covers the main LCD. Most commonly Oils from your skin can work into the phone and lay between the lens and the screen.

With your fingernail, you can gently work an edge of the lens till you can get under it and remove it. You can use a knife or tiny screwdriver. Once it starts to lift, it will come off easily, it is only held in place by a thin layer of adhesive around the edge.

Take a lint free cloth and wipe the screen (CAREFULLY) and the back side of the lens. Then just lay the lens back in and you should be taken care of.

If it is anything else, like a dark spot in the screen itself, or adhesive around the edge of the lens, let me know. I can tell you exactly what you would need and where to get the parts.
