Question about Palm Treo 600 Handheld

1 Answer

Receiver speaker doesn't work

My receiver speaker on my Treo 600 randomly went out. I can listen to other people only when I use speaker phone, which is annoying! People say they can still hear me even though I can't hear them. The ring and the other random sounds (like when you're in an application type stuff) still works, it's just the receiving speaker. Any clues on what to do? I would like to be able to fix this myself if at all possible, but I'd be willing to ship it off.

Re: receiver speaker doesn't work

I had the problem. One of two things is wrong: 1. The contact springs on the back of the speaker (inside the case) have slipped off their contact points; 2. Or your speaker has died. Go to and in the TREO 600 discussion group, find the BUZZ FIX. It will give you instructions with photos for opening the case and performing the BUZZ FIX. DO THAT! If you don't have the buzz now, you will! Check the springs on the back of the speaker to make sure that they haven't been stretched out of shape. Compress them a little to make sure that they will line up with their respective contacts. Clean the contacts with the eraser of a lead pencil. Reassemble the phone. If you still have no tones or the ability to hear you have a bad speaker. Order a new one, and replace the bad one. I had the problem, and this is how I fixed it. It really is fairly easy.

Treo 600 can't hear without headset

Try blowing hard on the spot where the headset plugs in. I have this same issue on my treo and a good burst of air will at times bring back the speaker/microphone.

Palm treo 600

I have the same problem.  I thought that I might just have a bad charger so I went out and purchased a new one, but it still didn't work.  I noticed that one of the pins inside of the phone had bent against the side of the case. I'm still not sure about what to do.  This might be your problem too.

Treo camera?

Hi Julian. Why not pose the question to the vendor selling the replacement camera if it will work on a camera-less Treo 600 like the one offered by Sprint?

Phone Freezes

If you mean that the phone hangs for a couple of seconds and then hangs up the call - I think I found your solution - My Treo was doing the same thing - so I just reseated the battery connection and it fixed my problem.

I would suggest doing a hard reset on the replacement treo. After that do a hotsync, and choose exhisting user from the drop down menu. This should work.

My treo is doing hard reset automatically

try performing a battery will reset the internal radio and the charging circuitry..only problem here is that u need an AC charger to switch the phone back on. this will wipe out all data u may want to back it up before trying this option heres how to do it Battery Disconnect Reset Treo 600 only A battery disconnect reset is a last resort step you can take to cut battery power, wipe all data, and regress a Treo 600 to its factory-fresh state. It only works on a Treo 600 smartphone. Important: A battery disconnect reset will erase everything on your smartphone, and also reset the wireless radio and disconnect the internal battery. All your data will be removed, and your formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a battery disconnect reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything. You won't be able to turn your Treo 600 back on until you connect it to a power adapter, so do not perform this type of reset without your Treo 600 charger and a power source. HotSync note: Some third-party applications change the way your handheld backs up data. Other third-party applications do not back up data. If you have third-party software on your device, please contact the developer to learn what components are backed up during a HotSync operation, and if HotSync conduits are altered. Any data not backed up will be lost. To perform a battery disconnect reset: 1. Disconnect your Treo 600 from the AC charger. 2. Hold down the K and Backspace keys simultaneously. (Note: for French AZERTY keyboard, press K and M; for other language overlays, please refer to the customer support for your region) 3. While continuing to hold down the K and Backspace keys, press the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device (where's the reset hole?). 4. Finding it hard to do? Good. We made this type of reset very awkward to perform, so that it would not happen by accident when your Treo 600 is jostling around in a pocket or bag. Sorry for the inconvenience. You might want to ask a friend to lend a hand if you find it too difficult to do by yourself. 5. Continue holding down K and Backspace. The screen will flash white briefly, and then go black. Release K and Backspace after this happens. Your Treo will appear to be "dead" and the screen will not turn on. If you see any activity ? such as the screen turning back on ? the reset was performed incorrectly; try again 6. To revive your Treo 600, connect it to the AC charger and plug the charger into a socket. The screen will stay blank for several seconds (as long as half a minute), then it will turn on. The LED will glow solid red, indicating charging. 7. Finally, follow the steps for recovering after a hard reset (a battery disconnect reset is an extended type of hard reset).
