    My Treo 755p resets during phone calls, trying to send text messages, or even just switching applications. No third party apps - only the ones in ROM after a hard reset.  And this is my third 755p.. it's been replaced twice under warranty for the same reasons.

Dhorner64 is incorrect. Your phone is not fried if you are in a restart loop. You need to do a "warm reset" which will not erase data. It is the equivalent of doing a safe boot in Windows. Remove the battery from your 755p, then put it back while holding the up button on the 5-way. Hold the up button as the phone starts. I had to do this frequently, then run the DataViz Tech app, which is available free from DataViz, to fix their prefs file, which was the source of my crashes. The problem was solved by upgrading to Docs2go v11. I was reluctant to pay to upgrade a crashing app, but the upgrade ended the frequent crashes. I have not had a couple resets since upgrading Docs2go, and no reset loops.

    I forgot to mention that after doing the warm reset, then running DataVizTech to fix the prefs file, you will need to do a soft reset to get the 755p out of safe mode, so extensions are running again. To do the soft reset, remove the Treo's battery, then put it back in. It will restart.

Hot sync the treo to backup, then reset, and resync.

Also try out NVBackup. A free backup scheduler that uses the card. it makes a hard reset easy. also does incrimental

If you are on the access loop, the phone is fried, a hard reset won't fix it... Has to be replaced.

Look at what hardware version you have. should be 1.07

Hello, have a Palm 755p Treo screen just keeps flashing


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

Palm Treo 700p keeps crashing


Next time you have to hard reset, and before you sync, rename the user backup folder. This will stop thrid party apps from installing.the folder is C:\Program Files\Palm\%userID\Backup
Rename it something like _back or backu_
You'll have to reinstall 2rd party apps, and I suggest you do this one at a time.

But I also recommend you get and use NVBackup. It's a FREE easy, configurable backup program that can be set to backup the ENTIRE system to the card at regular intervals [mine is 3am every day.] then you can restore in minutes without even connecting to a PC. google it... or get it here...

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
