Question about Palm Treo 680 Smartphone

1 Answer

The home key keeps resetting itself to the factory default regardless of other settings

I've got a problem with the Palm Treo 680 that I just can't solve. I've spent hours researching it. I've sent emails to Initiate and Palmone, but still nothing.

Palmone said I should do a hard reset and then do a hotsync. This was a headache and after performing this operation it still did not work.

My research has pointed to third-party software, i.e. Agendas clashing with the native Palmone programs which causes system conflicts, i.e. conflicting files that perform the same operation.

It seems as though the Palmone's contact list is the default address book, and Agendus Premium is just getting in the way.

Please indicate if this could be the problem causing he home key to keep resetting itself to the factory default regardless of other settings.

Yes the 3rd party software can cause your phone to do crazy things...try to isolate the program causing the problem. also under hotsyc settings you can turn off the palm contact list and change to using Agendus as your default contact and calender on your phone and that should stop the conflict...hope this helps

Is there a way I can revert my Palm Treo 650 back to original factory settings


Factory Reset for Treo 700p and 680 smartphones
If you've set a password on your smartphone, any hard reset will automatically become a Factory Reset. With this method, you'll enter a password and then perform a hard reset.
On your smartphone, launch the Security application.
2.If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your smartphone.
3.Once the password has been set, disconnect your smartphone from the AC charger and take off the battery cover. Do not remove the battery yet.
4.Hold down Power/End .
5.While holding down Power/End , remove the battery. Then insert it again.
6.While still holding Power/End , the screen will show the Palm logo and a progress bar. Then the circular Palm Powered logo will appear. Release the power button when you see the Palm Powered logo.
Keep holding the Power button during this screen. When you see this screen, you can release the Power button.
7.A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your smartphone. Press UP.
8.If you performed this reset correctly, the screen will go blank after several minutes, and you will not be able to turn on your device. The charging LED will not light up. (any other activity - such as the Palm OS logo and then the Applications launcher appearing - means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again) 9.Your device will appear "dead." To wake up your smartphone, perform a soft reset.

Compatability between Window Vista Home Premium and PALM TREO 680


THis is because vista and older palms aren't compatible. You need to transfer via bluetooth or upgrade your palm.

Go to Palm.com and make sure that all of your treo connectivity software is updated. They were a little slow getting it updated for Vista use.

USB Device Not Recognized for Palm Treo 680


if you are using Vista ultimate, it is a 64 bit operating system and therefore palm doesn't have official support for it yet, but someone has found a solution:

Use wifi in palm treo 680


WiFi is not supported in the 680. I understand that the Centro and the new 800W have it. (Me, I'll wait for the 800p before I trade in my trusty 680.)

My palm treo 680 turns itself off repeatedly


hi dear

BACK UP your Treo 650 software and data BEFORE doing the following.

1. RESET the Treo 650 back to default set by holding power buttom following by reset the treo.

2. There is a way to reset the voltage regulator in the Treo ; believe is by holding the RESET for > 3 seconds. Believe need to take out the battery in out during this process. Can't recalled the correct steps. This could could reset the Treo's power regulator.

3. TRY reinstall your palm software with minimun software or 3rd parties one, this software could be running in the back ground which drain the battery.

Try above steps might help.

Mine also got the same problem last two weeks, my treo could felt there is kind warm sensation if it took out from my waist pouch after leaving it for sometime on the table. BTW, the battery could felt quite warm also.

If yours also behave the same which I believed the Treo got some kind of contact problem which draw more power then usually does.

Now, mine got no more warm sensetion after carry out above steps. It gets better as Compared to last two weeks ago BUT not that good as compared previously when it can last 3~4 days after a full charge.

Good luck

Palm Treo 680 Key Buttons Not Working


Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your fibromyalgia Margo. There is a possibility that the settings got a little jarred from being dropped so much if this is the case then you should be able to perform a system reset on the phone and just work through the prompts. If that doesn't work then you may want to call in and have a hard reset performed but it does reset it back to factory default setting so you will want to synch your phone to your computer so your information will be saved. Hope that helps :)
