Question about Palm Treo 500 Centro

1 Answer

Palm Centro AT&T got wet;

My 6 day old palm centro supported by AT&T fell out of my pocket into my toilet. Took it apart after a couple hours but had no tools to open entire unit. After letting it air dry for 5 days, I put it back together. Immediately the hotsync screen came up. So I hooked to my computer and let it hot sync. Now that's all it wants to do. I was able to call and check messages and get to home page for about 5 minutes. Now, it sounds as if a button is being repeatedly pushed ~ I can hear a "doing" sound and it keeps wanting me to hotsync. When hotsync is comlete, it does it over and over again. So I disconnected from computer and took out battery again. When put back together, it still wants to only hotsync. Can this ever be fixed or should I give up?
SO sad to finally have a great phone and it seems as if I'll be returning to my 8-year old flip phone ~ and NO I didn't have insurance ~ and Yes the dot inside is quite red :-(

I dropped my phone in the toilet


take your sim card out and any memory chips. These can usually be salvaged. You might get lucky with the phone, but most likely, even taking it apart and letting it dry, it won't work correctly.

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 hearing


I hate to sound obvious but have you checked the volume setting? Took me a few days to realize they were there - I almost never read the manual. :) The two volume keys are on the left of the phone as you look at the screen. Hope this helps.

Transfer of treo programs to Palm Centro


The Centro and Treo are virtually identical. Have you tried reinstalling the applications from scratch on the Centro (vs. relying on Palm synch to automatically synch all applications)?

Flash not compatible on Palm Centro


Flash is not available on Centro - unfortunately. The new Palm Pre (coming soon from Sprint) is rumored to support Flash.
