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.

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.
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.
Try with a new battery, also the connection cable between the battery and the main board uses to loose contact, try unplugging and plugging again the cable which connects the battery with the main board. A symptom that the battery is loosing power is that the screen flickers while making a call.
