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 locked


If you forget the password, the only way to get back in is to perform a "hard reset." Performing a hard reset causes you to loose all data on your phone unfortunately (numbers, texts, and all). Hopefully you've sync-ed up your data on your computer recently.

To perform a hard reset, do the following:
1 - Remove the battery cover.
2 - Take out the battery.
3 - Put the battery back in. An orange Palm logo will appear on your screen.
4 - While the logo is showing, press & hold the Power/End button until a black status bar appears on the screen, fills completely, and then goes away. Then you can stop pressing the button.
5 - Next on your screen will be a prompt to erase all data. Press up to say Yes.
6 - Next select your language and you have an empty phone to start a new. If you've previously sync-ed up your data, you can sync up now and add it all back.

Good luck!

Power up prob


Man, I feel your pain. I've had the exact same problem. The only thing I've figured so far is to let the battery totally run out. Then, when you turn it back on, the phone/text functions return to normal. However, if you so much as attempt doing anything else, you'll be back to square one.

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.
