You can try wash again in pur ewater with out batteries and leave to dry in hot press or very warm area of house for a few days 5 days min. then put back battery and say a nice little prayer before you press the pwer button and who knows The Man above may answer your request.
I had the same problem with my phone a few months back. I took the battery and sim card out of my phone for a few days and then put them back in and it worked. I still have problems with my phone but not with the hotsync feature.
The problem is from the connectors on the bottom getting wet, slightly
moist, oily from your hands touching it or just plain dirty. This sends
an incorrect signal to the phone that makes it think the cable is
attached and requesting what ever action is initiated by pressing the
button on the cable, which is set by default to initiate hot-sync.
Two things can make this problem bearable or even resolve it:
Clean the bottom connectors to resolve the incorrect request for action
being sent and/or reprogram that cable button action to do something
different, like go to the phone's home screen instead of initiating
I take a packaged alcohol pad like they use at the doctors office (not
a cotton ball, the fibers get stuck in the grooves and deposit too much
alcohol in the phone) and wipe the bottom connectors down really,
really well. then let dry. two or three times of doing this _always_
fixes the problem for me. I let a lot of alcohol get in there but the
pads don't contain all that much extra which is why you should use the
pads to keep from damaging you phone! (they are cheap at wal-mart.)
In the meantime, reprogram what the phone does when it receives (or
thinks its receiving) a signal from the cable button press. On the
centro, go to Preferences --> Buttons --> HotSync, then set the
app you want to activate. I use "phone" so when the problem reoccurs,
my phone keeps sending itself to the keypad, not the long long process
of activating and canceling hot synch.
You will have to manually launch the HotSych application from the home
screen when you synch if you keep that button the same or you can just
change it back to the default when resolved.
Restart your Palm Treo 744p. Take out the battery from the phone for more than 3 min and put it back in. Switch on the phone and then try to Hot sync Again. Hopefully it will work. I am assuming that you installed the Palm Desktop software came with the phone on your computer I have same problem once in a while when i try to hotsync with new comp and this trick always worked for me.
I had the same problem. I just called Verizon & they had me take the battery out of my phone & then put it back in, the music is working again. I'd say try that & if it doesn't work, call them & they'll help you out! Good luck!
Did you turn the phone off before removing the battery? I sure hope so. If not, you may have to junk it. My father has done that to several phones now. He pops the battery out to put the charged on in, but forgot to turn the phone off. I just recently bought him a phone that sets itself to power off when the battery cover is popped off.
