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.

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.

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!!

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.

Your battery sounds as though it is completely dead. When a phone uses an application like hotsync this will deplete your battery faster than anything else. My suggestion is this, take your phone to a dealer store and see if they have the Palm Centro model. Have them insert their model battery into your phone to see if your phone turns on. If it does, then you have eliminated the probable cause of not powering on. However, this will not resolve the issue about the auto sync issue which I suspect is depleting your battery. This may require an immediate hard reset, which sets your phone back to manufacturer setting and you lose all contacts and dowloads on phone. The reps should be qualtfied to do your hard reset for you. If your phone stops acting up you've solved your problem. if your phone continues to auto-sync you'll need to take it for repair. There is usually a fee if you do not have protection on the device.

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

Won't sync to clean Palm


It may be due to a permissions issue on the workstation running the hot sync program
