Question about Palm Treo 600 Handheld

1 Answer

Palm Treo I bought a used Treo 600 on ebay and everytime I plug the darned thing in, it make this annoying charging beep repeatedly for a long time... the screen continually shows the lightening bolt, then no lightening bolt, then the bolt then no bolt. I wondered if anyone knows what is wrong... I returned it to the seller (who sells TONS of phones per day) for a replacement and just received the replacement and I believe it is the same phone as this one is doing it too... after a few mins the beeping thing will stop but if you touch the phone at all, it starts up again? is this normal for a treo? If so, it is a design flaw! please advise

Re: Palm Treo

Sounds like a defective phone...

I'd return it again... mark it to see if it's the same phone being returned to you....(perhaps inside the battery area) then try for
a refund if it happens again... if no refund available... check out

for a defective phone legal settlement offered by Palm

I hope this helps.

How can i turn off the annoying LED light?

There are several possibilities. One is a little freeware application called LEDOff. Just Google "palm ledoff" and go to the first site you see. It says it's for the Treo 600 but it works great on my 650.

The other solution is to put some kind of barrier over the light, like electrical tape. If you're feeling adventurous, you could even open the case and put the tape on the inside so it doesn't ruin the look of your device.

I can't for the life of me figure out why the Treo designers used such a bloody bright LED. I mean, it's like a laser! If you try to look at the screen when it's charging you'll likely get a headache. But the utility I mentioned even turns off the charge light.

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.

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.

Problem Getting My Palm 600 To Recharge

Try plugging the Treo in to recharge and then at the same time poke the reset hole in the back of it. This should reset the charging mechanism in the Palm. Let it sit for a hour or so and then try powering it back on.

Replace the LCD but I do not think it worth it. You can get a used Treo 600 for less than $50 from Ebay. Do not bother

Treo 600 can't hear without headset

Try blowing hard on the spot where the headset plugs in. I have this same issue on my treo and a good burst of air will at times bring back the speaker/microphone.

How do I get the hotsync to sync everytime there is a change?

You may be used to PocketPC ActiveSync. HotSync is an asynchronous synch model - you synch upon demand but not continuously. Pocket PC devices synch all the time while in the cradle. There are advantages to both models. If you want to synch a Palm OS device, you need to press the button. There are some extra appliactions available on that will force your device to synch upon a schdule.

Can you change from Palm to Outlook on your Treo 600

Simplest method for 'switchers': Assume that your Treo 600 has the data you need (it does but you are focusing on your Palm Desktop in your question). Install the Palm Desktop software again using the CD but this time, choose the option to synchronize with Outlook during the installation process. This will switch the synchronization to Treo <-> Outlook instalead of Treo<->Palm Desktop. Assuming your Treo is recently synched with Palm Desktop, this will merge the data you have in the Treo with that of your Outlook profile.
