Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

1 Answer

Battery? I recently bought a used 650 and the whole thing keeps turning off. I have to remove/replace the battery to start it up again. Is this a battery problem or something more serious? Luckily I can return it if I choose to. Thanks

    I am having the same exact problem.....its like the phone freezes up. I have contacted the Palm Support team....and after a reset the phone worked fine for a few days and now it has started again. This time a normal warm reset would not do the trick and I had to complete a hard reset. I do not think I should have to reset the phone every few days. And I have not installed any new 3rd party software on the phone....it is at factory settings. I would appreciate all comments

Have you tried using another battery in the unit?

Does it do the same thing when plugged into an AC power supply?

These phones can be fickle if they've been dropped a few times and contacts are bent or jostled. Sometimes if the housing is twisted physically or stresses are put on the housing it pinches contacts to perform certain actions (I have one that likes to hotsync if the case is twisted).

Check with using the AC pack. If the problem persists, it's the phone. If not, then it's the battery or it's contacts. Try a new battery.

Most likely your logic board has hardware glitches, if the problems remain after a firmware restores. If you're comfortable taking things apart or have a tech savy friend you can use a blackberry repair guide that will show you how to disassemble it step by step, or you can go to the repair service.

Have to keep setting up Ipaq


Battery is dead. You have to replace the battery and possibly the backup 3v battery if this model has one.

These batterys are sold by HP and for most models you can find them from ebay

My treo 650"s just plain freaking out


I have a TREO650 and ran into a somewhat similar issue before. What you did by removing the battery was called a soft reset. There are 4 types of resets; soft, warm, hard and zero-out (personally I would not try this one just because it is difficult to do and it may make things worse in some rare instances).

Here is a website that describes the 4 types of reset and how to do them. http://mytreo.net/treofaq/Treo650Resetting

If the pictures to you aren't as important as getting your TREO working, I would suggest doing a HARD RESET.

As a suggestion for next time. Take your pictures and then transfer them to a 1GB SD card (the TREO 650 cannot accept any size larger than 1GB) and remove the SD card. Use a SD card reader in your PC to extract the pictures.

Good luck.

You can do a soft reset by pressing the small indented button on the back with your stylus,: or you can do a hard reset by removing the battery and pressing the same button on the rear with your stylus. I would try the soft reset first, as the hard reset wipes all your data.

Do you have a Treo desktop charger/sync cradle where you can drop the battery into the charger?

My Toshiba e310 turns on by itself


It could be a piece of software that you have recently installed "activating" your PDA. I had this problem after installing a program that, amongst other things, monitored battery life. Once i uninstalled it it was fine so whether that was just a big coincidence i dont know.

E-125 No Power


are you checking your adapter. i had the same problem with my casseopeia e115. i searched and searched for the battery which even casio doesn't offer anymore. i bought a battery pack which works great w 4 AA batteries but it's bulky and you lose data when you turn off the batteries. i finally went on to discover that my charger/adapter that plugs into the e115 and the serial cradle was scorched by a lightening strike and it was not charging and eventually the batteries DIED!!! I took the adapter to an electronics repair store and for $15.00 they rewired the adapter and it works!!!! it charged the batteries and worked fine.(altho i have to visit them again because i think one of the new wires is bent and i have to position it perfectly to keep charging.) BTW: any one looking for a new casio battery jk210lt...i have a couple to sell! ;-) hope this helps
