Treo 600 Completely Blue Screen

Hi, my treo 600 is working (as far as receiving calls and making blind ones too :D ) except that the screen is completely blue! I performed a hot sync as well as soft and hard resets--to no avail. I think I may have caused this problem after placing small metal stick inside the charger port in an effort to remove some paper that was stuck.

My Treo 600 screen began to faint. And before I could hot-sync it became blue. By tilting the Treo, I managed to read the screen for a short while. But after a reset and few attempts to bring it back to life, it went dead completely. Panic, and looking out for a new (used) one. Then I attempted to open it, Heck I did not have to loose anything. - I found the screws in the 4 corners (one under the stylus) and had a Torx-6 (T6) screwdriver ready. The case did hold quite strong with the four clamps sideways, but I wrecked it a bit, and it gave way. The innards seemed not suspect, except a loose screen connector. I put it back, and bingo - the screen works again! Hope that I can do at least a HotSync of the latest data that I did not back up yet (luckily only a few weeks). The connector was the culprit. It sits in the middle next to the battery, and had obviously loosened with time. The screen is now as clear and sharp as never before it seems.

I's sorry to tell you your screen is dead. The screen is not displaying any information but the backlight is still functioning. This is the most expensive part of the phone as far as replacement parts and after-market parts. If you can fine one that is a reasonable price, you are very fortunate.

I have three screens like this at home. There are three layers to the screen, the backlight, the imager, and the digitizer. All three sandwiched together create the screen.

If the phone was on when you fished around the charge port, it is possible that you inadvertently caused a charge or grounded the charging/power circuit. You are fortunate that only the screen was damaged...if that's the only part that is damaged.

Call your cell phone provider and ask if they support the phone, it will work regardless but if they don't no screen change. My wife has t-mobile with an AT&T face. She just changed the wallpaper. If you find this helpful, please post as such.

My Treo Hard resets repeatedly

Do a simulated-battery-disconnect reset. This is a harder reset then the hard reset. It will simulate disconnecting the battery at a hardware level, so it will completely toast anything on your treo that might be causing the problem. Don't worry it won't hurt your firmware or anything, just all the data will go.

Hold down the BACKSPACE key, and the K key.
While holding it, press and hold the reset button using the reset tool on the stylus.
Hold all three for a few seconds. The treo should turn white, then turn off. If it won't come back on, then you've succeeded.

To get the treo to turn back on, plug it into the charger cable. In a few moments the treo will turn back on, and ask you for your language and regional settings, just like when you first bought it.

If this doesn't fix it, you have a hardware or firmware problem that will be far more difficult to diagnose/fix.

That means your touchscreen is no-good at all. I had the same problem. Had to get a rebuilt 600 from Sprint (thank god for the insurance plan).
