    keyboard light wont work what do i do?

    I have the same problem as this user. I have tried the option + menu but that only affects the screen. Seems like there is a problem with the keyboard 'light' itslef, as sometimes it is on, but most of the time off. Very frustrationg in the dark. I have insurance on the phone, but I have to determine if $50 is worth it to replace the phone. Any other ideas?

    I have the same problem. Now I see the keyboard light flicker on and off once in a while. In addition, I am having a problem with the N and J keys, so I'm thinking it's an issue with the keyboard. I may attempt to replace it by buying a replacement keyboard.

Have you tried the option key + menu key? It turns dims the screen and toggles the keyboard backlight on and off.

My PALM Centro will not charge i have it plugged in via USB my AC charger quit working months ago and i threw it away. Therefore i have it plugged in via USB and the LED at the top it green but barley on...


Hello salvidor72,
It's more effective to use a charger than the usb adapter. The wirelessemporium.com web site has a nice deal on a Palm Centro PDA Phone Home/Travel Charger:

You may also do a google search for palm centro charger. I hope this helps.
Have a great day, martyshaw152

Hello pscotty70,

Have you tried reseating the battery? First, remove the back cover. Then take the battery out for a couple minutes before putting it back in.

The keyguard feature might be accidentally enabled. To turn off Keyguard, do the following:
• When the screen is off, press the red power button to wake up the screen.
• Press the center (Palm) button to turn off Keyguard.

You can change how quickly Keyguard turns on, or you can disable this feature altogether. To change the Keyguard settings, do the following:
• Press the Home button
• Select System from the category drop-list at the top of the screen
• Select Prefs
• Select Keyguard.
• Select the Auto-Keyguard pick list, and then do one of the following:
-Select how quickly you want Keyguard to turn on: When power is turned off, 5 seconds after power off, or 30 seconds after power off.
-Select Disable to completely disable the Keyguard feature until you turn it on again by pressing Option +
Power/End when the screen is on.
4 Select Done.

Palm Centro - continous Syncing problem, now phone is dead


This happened to my palm centro and i fixed it myself. :) Maybe it will work for you. What i did was take out the battery and so the phone is completely off.. then take a tooth brush with rubbing alchohol on it and scrubbed the bottom part of it that the hotsync cord goes into.. I thought this may just mess up my phone more but i plugged it back into the power cord, turned it on and it worked just fine!! Seriously, try this out. It brought me so much relief!! And chances are you either got some **** stuck up inside there, or you got the botton part wet. Hope i helped!!

Palm Centro - no backlight


Sometimes we can resolve the issue by pressing the Options key and the Menu key simultaneously. The Centro Keyboard backlight would Turn ON.
