Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

1 Answer

Palm Treo 650 doesn't see bluetooth headsets, AND wired headphone jack is shorted

Hello. My 650 doesn't see my bluetooth headsets (Jabra JX10, Jabra BT160, or Motorola (older around the ear silver and grey model, with black oval enclosure around silver call connect button)). Headsets are fully charged and can be seen by other cell phones. Bluetooth is turned On, is Discoverable, and Dial-Up Networking is Off.

Setup Devices, then "Hands-free Setup" then...
"Nearby devices", "All known devices", and "Trusted devices" don't find any devices for any of these selections. "Find More" doesn't produce any either.

"Trusted Devices" and "Add Device" don't produce any either.

"HotSync Setup" doesn't see my HP Pavilion 9000 laptop, nor does my laptop see it with Dial-up Networking turned On.

On a further frustrating note re not be able to use Bluetooth for handsfree, the physical earphone jack appears to have short issues where the jack MAY work if half way out and set just so to enable both speaking and hearing, otherwise at least one or the other won't work.

Phone is out of warranty. Everything else seems to work fine and it would be a shame to have to scrap this equipment and make it disposable like so many other cellphones/technology...

Any advice?

Had a similar problems. Throw out wired headsets with shorting problems. Their too cheap to try and fix.

Try rebooting the phone, then make sure the wireless headset is on. The trick is to get it into "trusted devices", so when you get the phone to seek new or nearby devices, you need to push the button on the earpiece so it sends a signal at the time the phone is trying to find it. It took me a number of trys, but finally got it to work. I use Verizon and they were quite helpful, even though the phone was "out of warrenty". I was re-activating my phone after not using it for a couple of years.

Palm Treo and Jabra bluetooth headset

Turn your headset off. Then, press and hold the answer/end button until the indicator light is solid lit in blue. It is in paring mode. Now, make your phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a while, the BT-350 should appear on-screen. Select it and command the application to proceed. If a pairing code (or PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). If the pairing proces is successful, the headset should enter stand-by mode. The pairing process is timed.If you fail to complete it, you'll have to start it over, from the phone turned off phase. Once paired, whenever both your headset and your phone's bluetooth radios are turned on, they should connect to each other automatically. Otherwise

    Lost speaker on my Treo 650

    This problem usually occurs when the headset jack is busted. If there is sound through the headset but none when you plug it out, then a busted or faulty headset jack is definitely the culprit.

    Sounds like something got tweaked in the socket. If this is still under warranty I would suggest exchanging it.

    Palm treo 650

    The 650 seems to have a delicate headphone/mic jack. Dropping the phone, even gently, seems mess up that jack. I returned my first treo 650 as defective, and got a new one. The same thing happened to my new 650 after I simply compressed the phone in my breast coat pocket by holding my mail against my chest.

    I can't get a new one because the replacement treo comes with no warranty of any kind. :(

    My advice would be to find a PDA/phone repair service to repair the jack or diagnose the problem if it turns out not to be the jack.
