    my phone is stuck on the Hotsync screen and it will not go off the screen. I hit canceal and all it does is go straight back to the sync process. And i took my battery out and it continues to do this.

    Centro gets stuck on synchronizing Memos...if I cancel (which takes forever & on my PC I have to close the sync from the task mgr) the memos never sync nor what ever is supposed to be sync'd after that..

    After my centro went thru the hotsync process. The phone now will not come on or anything? help!!!!

  • awhiddon Mar 17, 2009

    A hotsync screen shows up saying "connecting with the desktop using cradle/cable". when I hit cancel, it either a.) goes away and then shows right back up, or b.) freezes up my phone and i have to take out the battery, and then it just starts back up all over again. it won't let me delete the hotsync app. i don't even need it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have to bring the phone back to a place that can fix it because that means you have too much water in your keyboard and it is messing up your selections. i had the same problem and it fixed it

Do a soft reset on the phone.
you just need to remove the battery and place it back in.
It will boot your phone.

Palm centro trying to synch without being connected to PC


Hello brad_bork,

Make sure bluetooth is turned off and the usb cable is not connected. Then do the following:

•Tap the hotsync icon
•Notice the words 'Local | Modem' side by side on the screen
•Tap 'Modem'
•Select 'Standard Modem' in drop-down list
•Enter any phone number (eg. 800-525-6452 *this is a non-working number)
•Press the Home button

Now hotsync should stop trying to sync automatically. When you want to run a hotsync Tap on 'Local' in the hotsync screen.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating below.

Have a great day,

Palm centro wont boot


Do a reset. You will lose all items on you device.
Take battery out. Put it in and hold the power button on till you see the palm logo the second time. Release when you see the 2nd logo. It will prompt you for pressing up to delete and reset. Press Up. It will take some time to reset and reformat but please wait. 
After that your phone should come to the setup screen. I would hotsync after you setup to get your contacts  back.

Why does my palm centro keeps hotsync non-stop


My phone did this today....i look up answers and saw yours..i later called my phone from my home phone and it seems to be working fine as of now, don't have that popping up every minute...once open you will be able to delete the hot sync application. I didn't delete mine yet, I was going to wait it out and see if it starts again. Hope I helped.

HotSync Problem!!


You have at least one application that is attempting a serial connection with the PC and is triggering hotsync instead. Many palm apps that allow live updating to your device when cradled or over blue-tooth can cause this type of error. I would take inventory of any software you added recently to your device or port settings you may have changed, especially regarding direct connect and cradle settings.

I am having the same problem.

Centro hotsyncs over and over and wont stop


okay so heres the deal on palm centro's. the battery and data port on the bottom is EXTREMELY susceptible to moisture damage. any amount of humidity or moisture will wick right into the data port and cause oxidation which is conductive, this is giving it the false hotsync reading. to fix this take the battery out and put a VERY SMALL amount of alchohol on the tip of a toothbrush and scrub the **** out of the prongs..... be carefull as if you use too much you will end up getting alchohol stuck in the coil and it will ruin it when you power it up. what you need to do is make sure its a fresh toothbrush and a little alchohol (almost dry) and after scrubbing the prongs blow dry them with a hair dryer for a while being sure not to heat up the phone too much! after that leave it set for an hour which should be enough for any amount of alchohol to clear!

if this doesnt work you have two options:

1> call in the insurance

2> order a replacement port and resoldier it on!

hope this helps
