I have just managed to get the cover off my treo 500 it took a little work but all off and looks like no breakage the two screws under the battery cover are obvious (one covered with a little red sticker with "palm" printed on it... some time ago I thought this was a reset button when my 500 froze up lol) the harder part is removing the back top half (with the lens cover and speaker cover. On the edge nearest the battery (remove the battery first) there are a 3 small recesses between them (2 points) there are some small clips work your way around the whole top half cover un clipping 8 in total) I did this with a thin piece of plastic and a lot or care there are 2 clips each side one about 4mm from the corner with the battery cover each side and one just before the curved corner about 22mm up from the first ones. The last two are either side of the silver detail strip that is around the lens and speaker covers. Once removed there are two more t5 screws which lets you remove the black inner chassis.
Hope this helps someone!
Good Luck

Hi. I have a palm Centro phone through Verizon with a cracked screen. How do I go about replacing the screen?

If your Centro is in warranty then you should probably take it to a Verizon store and let them repair or replace it.

If you want to try to fix it yourself, a Google search for "palm centro screen replacement" will show you several sources for the parts needed. There are also some special tools you may need to buy. This video shows the process and should help you decide if this is something you want to try:

Palm Centro hearing

I hate to sound obvious but have you checked the volume setting? Took me a few days to realize they were there - I almost never read the manual. :) The two volume keys are on the left of the phone as you look at the screen. Hope this helps.

Palm treo 700w

I was able to find many parts for my 700w on ebay including keyboards. You should be able to find what you need too and the keyboard is a sinch to remove and replace onew you have the two needed tools to open your phone, the T-6 screw driver and a cover removal tool that help unsnap the cover which is a bear to do without the tool. Do an ebay search to "Treo Cover tools" or "Touch screens for Treo 650" and you should find all you need.
