Re: dark screen

Turns out the little button on the top left of the device is for adjusting the contrast. Turn on the WorkPad. Press the little button. Then hold down the down button and the contrast will be adjusted.

I think the reset button is under the battery cover - You may need a paperclip to reset.

Before you do the hard reset have you tried a soft reset -

Pda ipaq 1710 not starting up

press the 1st and 4th button on the shortcut menu on the front and press the reset button. This will go through a complete hard reset and deactivate the battery. IT will take your PDA back to factory default mode. It saves you a lot of trouble. GOOD luck. If my explaining it to you didnt help then google "complete reset pda ipaq 1710". :)

Palm treo 600, hangs while picking up calls and wireless mode goes off, deleting all data

Perform a hard reset, and clear the data off the treo.

Hold down backspace and the K key. While holding both of those down, hit the reset button on the back. Hold all for a few seconds. The screen will flash white and then turn off.

Then plug it into the charger cable. It'll turn back on and get you to put in all the settings again.

Then it will work correctly.

Did they have you do a hard reset?

SK2 - Press the power button and reset button at the same time. Unit will vibrate when reset. You can use a paper clip or similiar to hit the reset button located behind the screen.

Treo 650 "Dead Screen"

Try plugging in your Treo as if you were charging it.

Then click the reset button in the back.
This should reset the charging mechanism inside.
See if the Treo starts to charge again after that by letting it sit for 1-2hrs.
