    palm frozen trying to synch connected to computer it synchs with problems then frezzes in z"cleaning up" mode.

  • Anonymous Feb 28, 2009

    I am having the same problem, and everything else synchs, but when I try to do the datebook alone, even then it freezes and I have to cancel the process and then restart the computer. I'm using Windows XP. Did you fix your problem??? Does anyone know how to fix this problem??? I'd even uninstall the Palm software on my pc and have all information taken from the phone to the pc, if needed, but would want to know that the problem will not reappear. Also, I don't know how to do the uninstall. HELP!

If you have another computer you could try installing the software on that to see if the Treo will sync.
This would determine if it's a computer problem or if it's your Treo.

When you unchecked the datebook to sync after uninstall/reinstalling, was it able to sync then?

I have had other palms get hung up to a certain point during the sync, but uninstalled the program or disabled it from syncing like you tried and it usually works.

    This is what I found elsewhere-

    Get a trial of TealScan and run the scan functions to see if you have
    any corrupt data. If so, hit "Info" at the bottom and then hit "fix."
    Then try to hotsync again. DBFixit is another app that will do this,
    but not in trial mode.

    Someone solved their problem this way with that -

    The problem is solved. I've scanned calendar by trial version of
    dbfixit, it found 3 BLOB errors, then I went to each found date and
    deleted wrong records in original palm desktop. Then synced again. Now
    it syncs w/o freezing on datebook in the second palm desktop.

    So if somebody is having this problem I would suggest to scan it with
    DbFixit, write down dates where are any errors, manualy modify that
    dates and scan again.

You will most likely have to reinstall Palm Desktop because either a Shared Library is always in use or it's missing. A reinstall should help.

How do you hard reset on palm treo 755

Hard resets on a 755p are described in the user's guide as removing the battery (with the phone off, and screen off), and then pressing the Navigator-UP button and holding until you insert the battery again, and you see the Orangle PALM logo displayed, where you can release your Nav-UP button. This does not work.

You need to hold down on the red power button, until the Orangle PLAM logo shows up, release it, and you will see a question like "do you want erase all of your data?" , press the Nav-UP button, and it will now do a clean hard reset.

Now, on the backup folder.

If you do not change user-names, and your PALM Hotsync setting for 'Backup' is set to 'Desktop overwrites handheld' you will get everything back when you HotSync. Therefore, if you delete the problem App's from your Backup folder (ie C:\palm\755p\backup, where 755p = your HotSync name) and you change to the settings on 'Backup' to 'Desktop overwrites Handheld' - then when you hotsync, you'll get the app's you want back, and not the ones you do not.

I hope this makes sense.

Volume will not adjust on Treo 755p

This may resolve the problem. My Treo 755 stopped hotsync some time ago and then I noticed that the volume control side buttons had no effect. On suggestion from this site, I removed the battery for several minutes and then reinstalled it and the phone has returned to normal activity, hotsync-ing the first time and volume buttons working fine.

Treo 755p phone audio stops working

try doing a hard reset just make sure you hotsync first so you can backup all your information. Always keep in mind the software you have loaded write it down and the website you got them from along with any registration codes. when doing a hard reset you will lose all the information and programs on the phone basically it will take you back to the way you first bought it.

How to Hard Reset a Treo 755 To perform a hard reset/clean wipe of a Treo 755, do the following:

1. Remove the battery cover from the back of the device.
2. Press and hold the power (red phone) button.
3. While holding the red power button remove and replace the battery from the device.
4. When you see the "Access Powered" screen on the device take you finger off of the power button. At this point, you'll be prompted to erase the device by pressing up on the directional pad.

Good Luck I hope this helps with your problem
