Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

Sync problem When I first purchased my handheld it worked and synced beautifully. I have not been able to sync since March. The communication between my computer and the device doesn't connect. I purchased a new cable and the USB port works fine with my printer.

Re: sync problem

What are you trying to sync to on your computer? First thing you always want to check is to right-click on the Hotsync icon in your system tray (the little red and blue circular arrows) and make sure there is a check mark next to "USB"

I had a power flicker during the time I was hot syncing my Palm TX. The hot sync did not work, and it would not hot sync at all after that. On advice from Palm's website, I downloaded the latest desk...

If so much has happened to your handheld then the only thing left to be done is a reinstall of the firmware, as that is the only solution to a corrupt firmware because of the power glitch while it was doing something. The glitch has corrupted the firmware and thats how it needs a reinstall. Nothing serious but such things do happen i electronics.

Palm was having trouble supporting but there is a new desktop available for the TX on Vista as well as Apple OS X. I don't know how well that machine will sync to both desktops though. It's probably a good idea to sync it on one machine or the other.

Error message using IrComm port

Hi, Right click on hotsync manager at the bottom right corner of the pc , make sure only local serial and ir is having a check mark , if anything else has check mark , just go to that and do a left click , it will get unchecked . On the handheld tap on home , on the main page u will see hotsync icon , tap on that , on the hotsync page make sure via ir , and not cradle or cable , then at the top u will see hotsync in words , tap on that , in the drop down u will see lan sync pref, tap on that and make sure lan sync is highlighted , and not local hot sync , since local hotsync is usefull only when u perform cradle or cable hot sync using usb , then click on ok , try a hotsync . If this doesnt help and again u get the same error , do a soft reset on the handheld and on the pc , go into hotsync manager , click on setup , choose local , change the com port to a different port and reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart the pc and again perform a hotsync . The error u got was coz of this , on ur pc a ir port is not been assigned .. Try this it should work .. Regards

Thanks to a fellow user, I was informed that I needed to purchase Chapura software. The following link has the software that does two way sync with BCM. Others don't. I did however have a few problems, but the help desk through Chapura was able to get the process working. Good Luck.

My hot sync was working fine and now it will not communicate... I have tried everything listed on your website but nothing seems to work please help

My Palm stopped syncing on both my work and home computer at the same time. I have been syncing fine with XP and USB. I found a thread where someone mentioned getting Palm to send you a Palm Reset Card. I called Palm and they didn't offer this solution, but I asked for the Palm Reset Card and it worked beautifully! They took my call and sent the Reset Card no charge. Unfortunately, nobody at Palm seems to know about this solution.
