Treo 650 keyboard not working

Hello, I have a treo 650. Recently the keyboard stopped working. I did a hard reset and I can press up button to erase my harddisk. Then it asks me to select a language by pressing the center consol. I try to scroll but it won't work. I tried doing hard resets a few more times but I alsways gets stuff there. Thinking this may be a dirty keyboard issues, I opened up the device (don't worry- no warantee on it anyway) cleaned the boards and pads and still no fix. It did work temporaraily until I closed the unit back up and it stopped again. I have not been able to since replicate the fix. I wonder if it's the circuitry in teh ribbon that connects the board to the device. Note, the red power button continues to work. No letters, no scroll, etc though. Any help is appreciated.

This is a "grounding issue". There are several ground locations on the board which the keyboard needs to be isolated from. You will notice when putting the housing back on, before you put the screws back in, that the keyboard works perfectly. As you begin putting in the screws, one by one, check whether the keyboard continues to work correctly. I have found that you need to isolate the keyboard from these screws by adding some isolation. This can be done by putting a piece of black tape on the board where the screw goes through.

THere is a screw just under the antenna ( remove small rubber plug with a sharp knife) and the keyboard can be replaced although I had a similar problem and it was the ribbon not seated all the way into the holder.

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.

Palm Treo 700W Smartphone is stuck on speaker phone


Hello,

Soft Reset
A Soft Reset stops all active (or open) programs and "reboots" the handheld. When the Treo powers back up, you'll start with all programs closed and the unit will be ready to use. The soft reset is intended to reset the Treo if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down.
The Palm Treo 750 can be soft reset by quickly pressing and releasing the tiny red button beneath the miniSD memory card door:
diagram.jpg Hard Reset
A Hard Reset wipes the internal memory and returns the Treo to its factory specs, in effect returning the Treo 750 to the state it was in when you purchased it. All data entered, preferences set or software installed on the Treo after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync / Windows Mobile Device Center.
power_button.jpg The Palm Treo 750 can be hard reset by pressing and holding the power button (seen left) while at the same time pressing and holding reset button beneath the miniSD memory card door. Press and hold the two buttons until the screen completely fades. When the screen returns, you'll be given the option to "Erase all data." Select Yes to complete the hard reset. The Treo will now be as it was when it left the factory and you can start fresh. You may have to perform a soft reset after the hard reset to get the unit to power on.

My palm treo is stuck on spanish and I have no idea how to change it back to english.


The only way to reset this to english is by performing a Hard Reset. It will remove all information on the phone BUT after it reformats it gives you the option to select English or Spanish.
The hard reset is performed by following the instructions below:
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.
Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen.
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.
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.
That should solve your problem! Hope this helps!

Bueno, trata lo siguente:
If you purchased the Treo in the U.S., you should have the English to Spanish option when you reset the phone. Just make sure to back up your data before resetting it.

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.
Step2Press 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. Step 11Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen. Step 2Read 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. Step 3Wait for the phone to reboot.

This should complete the hard reset process. jQuery('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
  • Do not forget to back up your data before performing the hard reset. If you don't, only the data from your last HotSync will be able to be recovered.
  • After performing a hard reset, install your applications one at a time to make sure each is in working order. Delete any applications that are not in working order, as those might have caused the need for the hard reset in the first place.
Buenas Suerte,

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks,

How do you do a hard reset on a treo 650


1. Backup your data first.
2. While holding the red hang-up key, click the reset button. Keep holding the red key until after the progress bar completes and the Palm logo shows.
3. You are then asked if you are really sure - Pressing the up key at this point completes the hard reset.

You can do a soft reset by pressing the small indented button on the back with your stylus,: or you can do a hard reset by removing the battery and pressing the same button on the rear with your stylus. I would try the soft reset first, as the hard reset wipes all your data.

Treo 650 "Dead Screen"


Try plugging in your Treo as if you were charging it.

Then click the reset button in the back.
This should reset the charging mechanism inside.
See if the Treo starts to charge again after that by letting it sit for 1-2hrs.
