Reset would not help with this kind of issues.

If it does not charge , and battery and charger are good, that means that there is a broken contact in the DC socket on the PDA, where you plug the charger.

The fix requires disassembly and a delicate soldering job on motherboard, and must be done at a repair shop.

Regards.

TREO 650 can't see the computer


Did you try opening the hotsync manager and configuring your details?

Suncing Media, Photos, Videos and MP3


The Palm Desktop Manager, which is free on the Palm website, can sync all your media to and from your phone. Here is the site, just choose the right OS for your computer.

http://www.palm.com/us/software/palmsoftware.html

When you sync your phone to your PC, it will ask you initially for what you want to sync. You can also do this anytime when you open up the Palm Desktop Manager on your PC. You can drag and drop your MP3s to the music folder on the Palm Desktop Manager and then sync it to your phone. This is the easiest way to get the MP3s on your phone.

You can also move photos/MP3s from your phone to your PC by using a 1GB SD card (the TREO 650 cannot accept any size larger than 1GB, trust me!). Copy your photos/videos/MP3s from your phone to the SD card and then take the card out of your phone. Use a USB Card Reader and connect it to your PC to read the SD card you just removed.

Good luck.

My palm treo 680 turns itself off repeatedly


hi dear

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.

Good luck

Unable to hotsync treo 600 with my computer


What is happening with the Sync? Does your PC and the Palm Desktop Manager recognize your TREO 600? If not, the issue may be that somehow the driver for your device was removed. I would suggest upgrading to the latest version of the Palm Desktop Manager and try plugging in your TREO 600 again and try synching.

Here is the location for the free software from Palm. http://www.palm.com/us/software/palmsoftware.html

You also have to make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Manager is the same as the type of cable you are using. If it is a USB cable, have that setting on your PC's Palm Desktop Manager Hotsync settings.

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.

 

(copy/paste this into your browser)

http://kb.palmone.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE?New,Kb=PalmSupportKB,ts=Palm_External2001,case=obj(887)

 

Let me know if this works.

Complete uninstall of palm desktop?


How I uninstalled Palm Desktop for the 7135: Suggest this step: 1) Find your Palm files, all of them, most likely /Program Files/Palm, and make a copy of the folder, call it Palm Backup. That should leave all of your existing information as is, just in case 2) Using the control panel, find and remove Palm Desktop (Start, Control Panel, Add/Remove Applications) 3) Suggest you optionally reboot. 4) Now do the install of your new Palm Treo 650 software. This is what I did, and all is well. I had different problems when I decided to go back to my 7135. Seems that using the same techniques does NOT remove the PalmOne software, lots of residual modules, and even if I did a delete of the entire Palm directory, there must be links everywhere. The 650 has extraordinary capabilities, but in the end, I went back to my 7135.
