Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

TREO 650 can't see the computer

For some reason my TREO 650 is not seeing the computer to conduct a Hotsync. I am using the USB cable (I have 2) and neither will acknowledge connection to the phone.

I also have a refurb 700P that I am trying to sync and put into service.

As said make sure your hot sync manager is open, remove the battery till phone shuts off, replace battery and hold the cord where it goes into the phone nice and tightly in place. (seems all the issues are related to that cord where it goes in) and then hit the black button on the cord. worked for me and as i see in other posts others as well. Good luck.

I am using Windows 7 and want to Hotsync my 1000s of Memo Notes from My Palm Treo 650, I got the latest Palm Desktop and Hotsync Manager but My Computer cannot Hotsync or even detet my Treo 650....Pls...


Palm Desktop compatibility with Windows 7 and 64-bit editions Palm Desktop 6.2 was designed for 32-bit editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. You may be able to use this software with other versions of Windows.
Windows 7: Many users have successfully installed and used Palm Desktop 6.2 with Windows 7. Palm has not done thorough testing with a range of third-party equipment running Windows 7, therefore Palm cannot guarantee compatibility.
64-bit editions of Windows: USB HotSync is not supported. Instead, synchronize through a Bluetooth wireless connection: set up Bluetooth HotSync.

HOW TO PERFORM A HARD RESET ON Treo 650


Performing a hard reset on a Treo 650will erase everything on the smartphone. Most people do this because of trouble with the Treo 650's software. There are several key stages to performing a hard reset. Follow these steps to learn how to do it properly.
  1. HotSync the Treo 650 to your computer to ensure that you have all of your information backed up. You will lose everything on your Treo 650 with a hard reset.
  2. Step 2 Press and hold down the red phone key on the right side of the Treo 650 keyboard until the Palm screen appears. This will begin the hard reset.
  3. Step 3 Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen.
  4. Step 4 Read the screen prompt carefully. It will ask you to press the up arrow key to proceed with the hard reset or the down arrow key to abort. Press the up arrow to continue with the hard reset.
  5. Step 5 Wait for the phone to reboot. When it comes back on, it will ask you to select a language and walk you through the same introductory screens you saw when you first got the phone.
  6. Step 6 HotSync your Treo 650 to your computer. When prompted, select your old username to restore all of your contacts and information. This should complete the hard reset process.

I forgot my password on my palm treo cell phon


unfortunately, the password is made for protection from accidental or intentional access. The only way to bypass this would be to perform a hard reset and then hotsync your phone with your computer to put your contacts back on your phone.
For performing the hard reset that reformats your phone to factory condition, please follow the instructions below:
1. Press and hold down the red phone key on the right side of the Treo 650 keyboard until the Palm screen appears. This will begin the hard reset
2. Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen.
  1. 3. Read the screen prompt carefully. It will ask you to press the up arrow key to proceed with the hard reset or the down arrow key to abort. Press the up arrow to continue with the hard reset.
    4. Wait for the phone to reboot. When it comes back on, it will ask you to select a language and walk you through the same introductory screens you saw when you first got the phone.
    5. HotSync your Treo 650 to your computer. When prompted, select your old username to restore all of your contacts and information. This should complete the hard reset process.

Vista hotsync


Older palm products and vista aren't compatible. You either needs to transfer info via bluetooth or upgrade your palm if you wish to continue using vista.

Treo 650 wont sink


Assuming you are running Palm OS and not one of the rare beta Windows Mobile versions, here is my take on this.

Are you using a USB or Serial Sync cable? With either solution, make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Hotsync Manager is set to the correct setting (either USB, Serial, IR, etc). Conflicts between the cable type and the settings on your PC are common.

I prefer using USB cables since they are faster and you can tell if you are connected quicker than with a serial cable. Initiate the sync via your phone or the Palm Desktop Manager software. I have had faulty cable sync buttons and this was a good solution for me. If you haven't tried a new sync cable, you might want to.

Actually if you have time and a laptop, you can take your Treo to a Palm store and borrow one of their cables to try and sync. They were really helpful whenever I went in there.

Good luck.

Unable to hotsync treo 600 with my computer


What is happening with the Sync? Does your PC and the Palm Desktop Manager recognize your TREO 600? If not, the issue may be that somehow the driver for your device was removed. I would suggest upgrading to the latest version of the Palm Desktop Manager and try plugging in your TREO 600 again and try synching.

Here is the location for the free software from Palm. http://www.palm.com/us/software/palmsoftware.html

You also have to make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Manager is the same as the type of cable you are using. If it is a USB cable, have that setting on your PC's Palm Desktop Manager Hotsync settings.
