I would suggest a hard reset.  Be sure that all of your information is backed up prior to preforming these steps. 


Please follow the hard reset instructions in the following publication.

How can i turn off the annoying LED light?

There are several possibilities. One is a little freeware application called LEDOff. Just Google "palm ledoff" and go to the first site you see. It says it's for the Treo 600 but it works great on my 650.

The other solution is to put some kind of barrier over the light, like electrical tape. If you're feeling adventurous, you could even open the case and put the tape on the inside so it doesn't ruin the look of your device.

I can't for the life of me figure out why the Treo designers used such a bloody bright LED. I mean, it's like a laser! If you try to look at the screen when it's charging you'll likely get a headache. But the utility I mentioned even turns off the charge light.

Battery does not charge.

hi dear

try this

BACK UP your Treo 650 software and data BEFORE doing the following.

1. RESET the Treo 650 back to default set by holding power buttom following by reset the treo.

2. There is a way to reset the voltage regulator in the Treo ; believe is by holding the RESET for > 3 seconds. Believe need to take out the battery in out during this process. Can't recalled the correct steps. This could could reset the Treo's power regulator.

3. TRY reinstall your palm software with minimun software or 3rd parties one, this software could be running in the back ground which drain the battery.

Try above steps might help.

Mine also got the same problem last two weeks, my treo could felt there is kind warm sensation if it took out from my waist pouch after leaving it for sometime on the table. BTW, the battery could felt quite warm also.

If yours also behave the same which I believed the Treo got some kind of contact problem which draw more power then usually does.

Now, mine got no more warm sensetion after carry out above steps. It gets better as Compared to last two weeks ago BUT not that good as compared previously when it can last 3~4 days after a full charge.


or just try to use

Palm treo 750

try a reset, if that doesnt work, then we can try a hardreset witch also removes all your files from the phone.

If a hardreset doesnt work then the phone is in need of repairs.

My treo 650"s just plain freaking out

I have a TREO650 and ran into a somewhat similar issue before. What you did by removing the battery was called a soft reset. There are 4 types of resets; soft, warm, hard and zero-out (personally I would not try this one just because it is difficult to do and it may make things worse in some rare instances).

Here is a website that describes the 4 types of reset and how to do them.

If the pictures to you aren't as important as getting your TREO working, I would suggest doing a HARD RESET.

As a suggestion for next time. Take your pictures and then transfer them to a 1GB SD card (the TREO 650 cannot accept any size larger than 1GB) and remove the SD card. Use a SD card reader in your PC to extract the pictures.

Good luck.

Palm treo 650 wont power up

It may be past the point of turning on.
If this is the case, if you connect it through the USB cable to your computer for a little while, it can get a small charge.

Trickle charging
Some Palm devices have the ability to "trickle charge" from a USB port on a PC or Mac. This means that it receives a very small amount of charging from the USB port, even if it is not connected to its AC charger. If your device is capable of this function, the charging time will be significantly longer for a trickle charge (depending on the power rating of the PC USB port). However, the device may not charge at all on an unpowered USB hub (or for example off off a keyboard).

If you can then power it on afterwards, connect it to the regular power charger.

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.
