Treo 680 microphone

My Treo was water damaged. All functions have returned to normal (amazingly) except that the other party can barely hear me talking when I place a call without a headset. I have found a place online where I can buy a replacement microphone. Is this something a relatively handy and technically competent person can just figure out?

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

SOURCE: why my palm treo 680 always no signal?

Four things it could be are:
1. You are in an area that doesn't provide service for the sim card you have inserted.
2. There is a bad connection inside the phone between the antenna and the main board.
3. If it is locked for a network and a different network's sim card is inserted it may cause this problem.
4. A problem with the main board or the firmware could be the culprit.
Unfortunately, unless you have experience with these phones it will be difficult to diagnose which is your problem.

My voice cannot be heard by other person for brief periods

If the problem repeated when you swapped your SIM card to another phone, it rules out it being a hardware issue. You can take your SIM card to a cellular store and have them replace it. That should fix the issue. I doubt it is the card itself since the card simply holds your account info for accessing the network. It sounds more like an issue within the network where the internal settings associated with your SIM # weren't properly set. Getting a new SIM card will force the system to fully set and associate your account with the SIM and should (fingers crossed) help fix the issue. Good luck!

Freeze and shut down

make sure the sim card is sitting snugly in the phone and if you have recently downloaded or added and 3rd party software that can mess up the phone, had the same problem and after I went through recently added programs I removed 1 at time and found the program causing the problem...have not had a problem since...have a Treo 680 for past 2 years

My Treo 680 automatically turns back on when I turn it off.

I wish I could say exactly how the problem was fixed. I just know that after I was using the calculator I set the 680 down and it shut off automatically. It now seems it was in some type of endless loop, one that I couldn't get out of even after taking my battery out multiple times. The Treo 680 does have freezing type problems that I wish could be fixed... Maybe it is my Tealphone 3rd party software or something like that??

Treo 680 freezing

I had similiar problems with my 680 but the problems are gone now. Mine had to do with 2 specific add on apps, Olive Tree Bible Reader, which had a patch, and Ultra-soft Money, which had a specific issue with the budget function. I applied the Olive Tree Bible reader patch and deleted the budget function of UltraSoft money and my issues are gone.

Use wifi in palm treo 680

WiFi is not supported in the 680. I understand that the Centro and the new 800W have it. (Me, I'll wait for the 800p before I trade in my trusty 680.)
