    I tried to hard reset but all I am getting after the confirmation to reset is the Access Powered screen and it does nothing after that.

    Same problem, but the Hard-reboot does nothing. It asks to delete all data, then reboots in a loop.

    My phone constantly has the same problem of turning itself on and off. This is the 2nd time I've had to do a Hard/Master Reset on this phone. The problems just keep coming back. There doesn't seem to be an end to this aside from getting a brand new phone, however with economy the way it is I feel hesitant to splurge. So if there are any other suggestions please post I'd really appreciate it.

There is a soft/warm reset which bypassed the loop without losing your data.  press the up key and reinstall your battery.  do not let go until the palm screen fully loads. when fully reloaded let go.  sounds a little confusing but the palm website has step by step instructions.

There are multiple reasons for the phone to go into an endless loop.

Fix #1 - Soft Reset - Take out the battery. On the back of your phone, pop the cover off, remove battery, place battery back in and it will show each screen once and power on normally.

Fix #2 - Hard Reset - To do a hard reset, hold the power button while you replace the battery and then release it when the Palm logo appears.

Fix #3 - Hammer

As for the corrupted data from your contacts, try PDB database repair.

No, you have to delete the data. I had the same issue and the only way to get out of the loop was to reset the phone completely and restore a backup.

I use NVBackup to save everything to my SD. It was a simple matter to reload and so far so good. I suspect it might have been the several calls I received over the Airave while at home. Will keep an eye on it and see what happens.

The hard reset does solved the problem but if I synchronize my contacts etc.. from my pc, the phone has the same problem again.
so the phone does work after a hard reset but when u sync it messup the phone again. I suspect some files is corrupting the phone or something. I had to export the vcard (contacts) then open it on my second computer with a clean palm desktop installation then sync the phone. I wonder why this problem is widespread.

Palm treo 755p tried removing battery and still only says treo across the screen and reset button dont work


in order to perform a hard reset, you take out the battery. hold the power button and insert the battery.

release the power button when you got palm/access powered. it should prompt you to erase all data. press up to erase and finish setting the device. no need to reinstall the palm desktop software.

When I install my battery I get the Access Powered then Palm.


I have a Treo 700wx with very similar problem that I solved by starting a hard reset by holding down red button while inserting the battery... keep button down until the message comes asking if you are sure you want to do a hard reset.... I hit the space bar to abort it and IT STARTED UP normally ... worth a try... good luck.

My phone doesn't want to turn on!


First make sure your phone is fully charged. Then check...
It may be the storage card - if you take the storage card out it will boot up and you can put it back in. - pain in the a## but it may work. Or Try taking the SIM card out, boot it up, turn it off, replace the card, and turn it on again.
Last resort is a hard reboot. If you did a hard reboot and nothing happened then you did not do it successfully. To do a hard reboot.

- with the phone powered off
- press the two soft keys, yes the left and right soft keys which are the two dash keys labeled - -
- while keeping it pressed, press the power button down
- keep the power button pressed down for 1 - 2 seconds and then release the power button while still holding down the two soft keys. Keep holding down the soft keys until a black screen appears and prompts appear
- now release the soft keys and follow prompts
- if you dont see the black screen with the reset option, pull the battery out, reinsert it and repeat the above steps
- when you see the black screen with the reset option, press the Send button to confirm the reset.

Treo 700p locks on Access Powered


I called Sprint tech support. With the battery in, hold the red power button down until the screen comes on that asks you if you're sure you want to reset your Treo (you will lose all information but hopefully you're like me and synch it frequently with your desktop.) I reset it and then synched it with my desktop and got almost all my info back - just had to redo email passwords and some settings. It was easy.

Palm 755P Freezes


Well, thank God I had done a recent Hot sync! I found out how to do a hard reset by holding down the power button while reinserting the battery then letting the button go and the system will ask if you want to erase all data? I put yes! Then it erases all my data and restarts the phone. I had to plug the phone in to be recharged because the looping ultimately drains the battery. Then, I plugged in the Hot sync cable and pushed the button to start the sync and ta da! back to its working state! Yippee! Do it! It's easy! Just make sure to hot sync often so your info stays current!

Palm Treo 700P In Death Spiral


I just encountered exactly the same issue.
Was using the phone ended the call and was about to place a call when it started the Death Spiral.
All reset options have no effect. Putting the battery in while holding the sync button will produce a color pattern but no functions are available.
I did call Palm USA tech support - apparently they are aware of the issue but have no free solution that they would offer me - for $199 I could send it to them for repair.
