Hello hyuuga4567,

The keyguard feature might be accidentally enabled. To turn off Keyguard, do the following:
• When the screen is off, press the red power button to wake up the screen.
• Press the center (Palm) button to turn off Keyguard.

You can change how quickly Keyguard turns on, or you can disable this feature altogether. To change the Keyguard settings, do the following:
• Press the Home button
• Select System from the category drop-list at the top of the screen
• Select Prefs
• Select Keyguard.
• Select the Auto-Keyguard pick list, and then do one of the following:
-Select how quickly you want Keyguard to turn on: When power is turned off, 5 seconds after power off, or 30 seconds after power off.
-Select Disable to completely disable the Keyguard feature until you turn it on again by pressing Option +
Power/End when the screen is on.
4 Select Done.

More information about the keyguard feature canbe found in the Palm Centro User's Guide:

I have an black one and everytime I turn it on its asking for an password and I don't know it


Hello guccimane04,

A hard reset will unlock the Palm Centro But it will ERASE ALL of your data. If you choose to do a hard reset, the following procedure will work:

• Remove the battery cover on the back of the Palm Centro
• Remove the battery for a few minutes
• Press the power button when Reinserting the battery
• Release the power button after the Palm logo displays on the screen
* The hard reset erases all your data ! (Run a hotsync to retore the data) *

Keys on my palm centro won't work!


Some phones have a keypad lock so you dont accidentally hit the buttons if its in your pocket or something. Maybe try to go to settings and see if there is anything like that.

Palm centro wont boot


Do a reset. You will lose all items on you device.
Take battery out. Put it in and hold the power button on till you see the palm logo the second time. Release when you see the 2nd logo. It will prompt you for pressing up to delete and reset. Press Up. It will take some time to reset and reformat but please wait. 
After that your phone should come to the setup screen. I would hotsync after you setup to get your contacts  back.

Palm Centro - no backlight


Sometimes we can resolve the issue by pressing the Options key and the Menu key simultaneously. The Centro Keyboard backlight would Turn ON.

Palm Centro locked


If you forget the password, the only way to get back in is to perform a "hard reset." Performing a hard reset causes you to loose all data on your phone unfortunately (numbers, texts, and all). Hopefully you've sync-ed up your data on your computer recently.

To perform a hard reset, do the following:
1 - Remove the battery cover.
2 - Take out the battery.
3 - Put the battery back in. An orange Palm logo will appear on your screen.
4 - While the logo is showing, press & hold the Power/End button until a black status bar appears on the screen, fills completely, and then goes away. Then you can stop pressing the button.
5 - Next on your screen will be a prompt to erase all data. Press up to say Yes.
6 - Next select your language and you have an empty phone to start a new. If you've previously sync-ed up your data, you can sync up now and add it all back.

Good luck!
