Question about Palm Treo 700w Smartphone

NO SOUND FROM MAIN SPEAKER

Since today, my TREO-700WX main speaker (not the Hand free one) stop working. When I'm in a call, people can hear me but I CANT hear them until I have to switch to HandFree speaker mode or plug in my earbud handfree kit. I have opened my unit and checked / cleaned the 2 contacts of the speaker ear module on the board. No results. I have performed an HARD RESET, nothing! I've notice that when turning ON/OFF the Wireless mode, NO more TREO Jingle sounds... PLEASE HELP! Is there a risk that the speaker module is busted? Any ways to get parts for this phone whitout getting SCREWED by the service carrier flat charge repair cost?

    My Palm Treo has just developed the same problem. My phone only works with a ear piece and mic plugged into the jack. Hands free works sometimes, the phone is only 8 months old. By the number of posting I have seen on this iisue I believe Palm has a real problem and they need to be held accountable.

    A couple weeks since first posted... I've ordered an ear speaker module from CHINA folks, and believe or not it wasnt the problem. I solve my problem simply by plug and unplug repetely the ear bud hand free module into the phone jack! The problem is from the internal electronic switch that detect the plug. Visibly not repairable out of replacing the logic board at high cost. On my side nothing will ever go in that hole for a while! Enjoy!

    I had the same problem. I plugged in the Treo earbuds repeatedly and "jiggled" it a bit. That fixed it! Apparently the problem resides in the earbud jack as another mentioned.

    have the same problem but jiggling the ear plug in the hole didn't help. took it apart and nothing looked wrong, so now don't know what to do.
    tried the sound switch on top too, nothing. damn

Would you believe my problem (no sound) was solved by shutting off, then turning back on the sound slide button at the top of the phone? I think it was kind of in-between when the sound wasn't working, just ever-so-slightly, though - not really noticable til I went to shut it off, then I realized it didn't seem totally 'on'.
Good luck!

Main Speaker Not Working


IS there a circuit board inside that speaker? You are correct about the general loss of sound quality that usually occurs with speaker failure. Best way to check is with a meter or a scope

When I press the SPEAKER button, I hear no dial tone; if I try to use the speaker to answer a call, I can't hear the caller. I have replaced the batteries - twice.


Dear, that is not a battery issue, If you can't here the ring/answer the phone on loud speaker, it is definitely speaker problem, either the loudspeaker is damaged or the circuit on main board damaged or broken. Please try check the circuit on main board passing the electron properly or working properly and the speaker is also OK. If not, try repair the damaged circuit or replace damaged speaker.Check the sound IC/processor is also fine if necessary. That's all. Hope it will help you to fix. Thanks for joining Fixya. Good Luck

Palm treo 700wx - search function


One way to speed up the the processing speed is by checking the memory usage. From the main screen select the start button and then settings. At the settings page select the system tab towards the bottom and on that tab select memory. Choose the running programs tab at the bottom. It will give you a list of programs that are running in the background, even though you may have exited out of them there still are parts of them that are still pulling on your phone. Select which program(s) you want to stop and then hit the stop button. Some programs wont let you close out such as OfficeSync but others like internet explorer or solitaire will close easily and allow you phone more space to operate.

To put it simply doing this is like turning a 2 lane road in to a California freeway it gives the phone more space to send and recive data instead of trying to squeeze it.

No speaker no sound on my treo


I had to have my Treo swapped once already because of a problem with the headset jack. The same problem is happening now - the phone always thinks the headset is plugged in (even when it isn't). That results in phone ringing (unless on virbate / silent mode) but no audio through the speaker in the back, and no speakphone icon appearing.

Given the symptoms you describe I would go to your service provider and (hopefully) get support under warranty - very likely hardware related.
