Question about Palm Treo 500 Centro
My daughter's phone had the same issue of the red charging light remaining on constantly and the phone not booting up....
I something similar happen to a PSP console too.
If you have a Sandisk or other type of expandable data card in the phone... remove it.
Remove the battery for about a minute and put the batter back in...
The data card is probably corrupt and needs to be reformatted.
I did this and the phone booted with no problems.
Just like my PSP.
Hope this Helps....

The red light is usually on because ur "phone" is off but the "device" is on, u have to hold down the power button to turn the "phone" back on also u cannot turn the device completely off unless fully dead or battery is out

Try takinga Q tip and dipping it in rubbing alcohol, and clean the receptors.

My phone is doing the exact same thing. The red light comes on. Then nothing else does... What to do what to do. It isn't water damage. I have left the battery out for several days. and Tried to put it back in... WTF is up with this phone... Seems I'm not the only one with this problem!

Alright, this isnt a solution, but a question, Ive taken my battery out all night and put it back in and still onlt the red light turns on, nothig else.
Ive also tryed a different battery.
I have having a problem where it kept trying to sinc with the computer and wouddnt let me do anything else, I took thebattery out and put it back in and nothing would turn on, did it a few more times, and it finally did.
It worked normal for awhile then it stopped letting me use everything except the touchscreen.
Now, I took the battery out for awhile then thats when I came to the situation Im at now, only the red light turns on.

I would like to know more about the meaning of the status icons on the Palm Centro?

Mine is the samen, i think.
The red light will stay on forever, and it says that the phone is off, but the devicce is on. I cant make calls, get on internet, or recieve text.
I usually do a soft reset (take the battery out and put it back in. It works for a while then, but then will go back to the phone being "off"

One suggestion I have is if someone can post a link to the original ROM from the carrier - Sprint, ATT, Verizon. then I would suggest flashing the ROM since it seems like a software issue. I was able to flash my ROM with the updade (1.7) provided by Sprint. It took me a while since my centro only turned on a few times when it reset, but with the update it still did the same force hotsync issue.
I think if I was able to install a new ROM completely, like reinstalling Windows for PC it might work fine.
