Question about Palm Treo 755p Smartphone

Help! My Palm Treo 755 is displaying a multi-color screen!

My battery died on my palm, but after I began charging it, it was displaying hot sync messages and continually trying to initiate a hot sync by itself. Now I'm getting a checker board look to my screen with red, green, blue, and white and I can not pull up any data. Any thoughts?

Thanks much!

    My Palm Treo 755 is displaying a multi-color, checker board style screen. Because I have not done a recent hot sync, I would prefer to not have to do a 'hard reset' due to the loss of data that would result. I would very much appreciate an alternative suggestion. Thanks much!

Sounds like the screen last seen at the factory. Hopefully, you have a recent backup. I'd suggest you do a hard reset, which will wipe out all the data on your Palm. Then, restore the data.

To perform a hard reset:

Remove the battery cover from the unit. While holding the power button down, remove the battery, replace the battery and then remove again. When the 'Access Powered' screen appears, release the power button. The phone will then prompt you with asking if you wish to erase all data or not. Choose Yes to erase data. The phone will then proceed to reset itself. Once this process is done, you will be prompted to set up phone like new. Now, sync your phone to receive your contact information, settings etc.

Hope this helps.

I was having problems with my palm tero 755p when it started hot sync on its own and wouldnt let me log i then took the battery out and put it back in and now its froxen with colored squares on the...

Treo started to sync on it's own?! The reason why it happened, because the firmware on the PDA could be corrupted.

If the Treo is still under the warranty, you need to contact Palm and they just need to re-flash the firmware or upgrade the firmware. You PDA should be working again.

Upgrading it should not cost anything expect if the PDA is out of warranty. But it should not costs you too much.

Have a great day!

My palm 755 wont hot sync

Restart your Palm Treo 744p. Take out the battery from the phone for more than 3 min and put it back in. Switch on the phone and then try to Hot sync Again. Hopefully it will work. I am assuming that you installed the Palm Desktop software came with the phone on your computer

Well, thank God I had done a recent Hot sync! I found out how to do a hard reset by holding down the power button while reinserting the battery then letting the button go and the system will ask if you want to erase all data? I put yes! Then it erases all my data and restarts the phone. I had to plug the phone in to be recharged because the looping ultimately drains the battery. Then, I plugged in the Hot sync cable and pushed the button to start the sync and ta da! back to its working state! Yippee! Do it! It's easy! Just make sure to hot sync often so your info stays current!
