Re: stuck on mc 50 screen

Sounds like the firmware is corrupted, you could try a firmware flash, but i would suggest sending it back to symbol and they will replace its mainboard

Palm Treo 700W Smartphone is stuck on speaker phone


Soft Reset
A Soft Reset stops all active (or open) programs and "reboots" the handheld. When the Treo powers back up, you'll start with all programs closed and the unit will be ready to use. The soft reset is intended to reset the Treo if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down.
The Palm Treo 750 can be soft reset by quickly pressing and releasing the tiny red button beneath the miniSD memory card door:

A Hard Reset wipes the internal memory and returns the Treo to its factory specs, in effect returning the Treo 750 to the state it was in when you purchased it. All data entered, preferences set or software installed on the Treo after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync / Windows Mobile Device Center.
power_button.jpg The Palm Treo 750 can be hard reset by pressing and holding the power button (seen left) while at the same time pressing and holding reset button beneath the miniSD memory card door. Press and hold the two buttons until the screen completely fades. When the screen returns, you'll be given the option to "Erase all data." Select Yes to complete the hard reset. The Treo will now be as it was when it left the factory and you can start fresh. You may have to perform a soft reset after the hard reset to get the unit to power on.

My palm treo is stuck on spanish and I have no idea how to change it back to english.

The only way to reset this to english is by performing a Hard Reset. It will remove all information on the phone BUT after it reformats it gives you the option to select English or Spanish.
The hard reset is performed by following the instructions below:
Press and hold down the red phone key on the right side of the Treo 650 keyboard until the Palm screen appears. This will begin the hard reset.
Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen.
Read the screen prompt carefully. It will ask you to press the up arrow key to proceed with the hard reset or the down arrow key to abort. Press the up arrow to continue with the hard reset.
Wait for the phone to reboot. When it comes back on, it will ask you to select a language and walk you through the same introductory screens you saw when you first got the phone.
That should solve your problem! Hope this helps!

Axim 50/51 wont pass blue startup screen

There could be two possible problems with this device.

If you have to remove the unit to shutdown, then the ROM chip holding the information for the bootup of the unit may need to be replaced.

The other possible problem is that the battery consumption of the unit may be greater than what the battery is rated at.

Either way, it will have to go in for repair.

Phone stuck on windows mobile screen

All you can do is a battery reset. Important thing for battery reset is to always make sure unit is on. Remove the battery. Wait 10 sec and then put it back in. Other then that check your warranty status.

Here is the page to download a user manual: The screen you speak of is an initial setup screen, if you use the stylus and tap on the screen where the cross is. this will get you started using the device.
