Question about Palm Treo 500 Centro

1 Answer

My palm centro started going dead with a low battery signal literally overnight. I replaced the battery with a new one, and it still won't stay charged longer than 6 hours. Also the phone is now running VERY slow. It takes 5-10 seconds to switch screens from home to phone.

I've had a Centro for 3 months and its such a let-down. Not only does the other caller find that my voice comes and goes randomly during calls but, like you, the battery started playing-up.

You'll find that a hard reset will bring the battery life back up. Hard reset clears EVERYTHING, so backup. To hard reset, remove and replace the battery while holding down the red, drop-call button until you are prompted to hard reset.

You'll find the battery life is bertter again, at least for a couple weeks...

Treo very hot and not turning on


I think your battery failed. When the red light is on that indicates the unit is trying to charge the battery, and it usually will get a little warm, but if it's really hot then a cell in the battery has probably failed.

You will need to take it to a dealer and get a replacement battery. (I've had to replace the battery in my Centro twice since I got it a year ago!)

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!!

Power


your battery is all the way dead and needs charging, or your battery is not holding any charge and you need a new battery, or, worst case scenario, the phone battery contacts are not working and your phone is now incapable of using a battery.

I drop my phone centro palm into water! I charge the phone and the red light turns on but my phone wont turn on at all. What can i do


Get a bowl of rice. Remove the battery from the phone. Leave the phone back open. Put phone and battery in the bowl of rice, cover and leave overnight.

The rice will hopefully soak up any water inside the phone and battery. If this doesn't work there may be permanent damage to the phone from the water and charging afterwords.

Palm centro will not power up


One word: RIDICULOUS. My Centro randomly Hot Synced one night, and never worked again. I went to a Sprint tech 5 times, literally. I had the insurance coverage and they order me a new phone. When I picked up my new phone, the tech turned it on in front of me. I go home, charge it up and NOTHING. Went back down to Sprint tech. Sprint does not cover the battery of the phone, and they gave me my OLD battery with my new phone. The phone worked with the tech's battery though (?). They gave me a new battery, go home charge and...nothing happens again. Went back, they checked my charger, and everything looked fine, except they had no clue what was happening. I still have the phone that I can't sell because it has all my info in it.

In the end, I went to Verizon, and ate the $200 termination fee. I called Sprint and said fix my phone or eat the termination fee, and they gladly waived the term fee!! TRUE STORY. The grass is greener at Verizon. They help you save money on your plans, seriously! You may think this sounds like a Verizon commercial, but after 6 years with Sprint, I wish I made the move earlier, much earlier. Search the internet for loopholes on how to cancel your contract without paying! Good luck!!

Hard reset for palm centro


When performing a hard reset on the Palm Centro, you hold down the power button as you insert the battery, and then release the power button when you see the second Palm logo.
