    The Sprint store quickly "Reset" my phone. Now they are closed, so I'm stuck with a dead phone AGAIN!!!!! AAAAAGH! I hate my 755, and wish I had my Verizon 700 back!

    I took it to Alltel and they told me it is dead and want me to get new one, but I am tempted to wait 2 weeks and ust get an iphone 3G. If I can fix the 8 color box thing I will keep it, otherwise I will give it up

Palm treo 755p palm OS - tries to start and keeps restarting

If it's stuck on the Access screen the likely hood you will be able to get it back is slim to none...

Take the battery out and hold the 4 way switch up... We can hope this will hard reset the device... resync and it should be up and running right...

I highly doubt it will help

Screen problems

I have personally had every Palm Treo ever made. I am also currently a 755p user and this is my second 755p that I have owned.

The problem that you are having is a common one and one that I have seen from every Treo that I have owned. I have found though that many of the problems that people have with their Treo's is that they do not turn them off and on again on a regular basis. I have found that if I power off my Treo for a few minutes in the morning and again mid way through the day that I have a lot fewer problems then ever before.

This is about all the help I can give for the problem that you are having, I have always loved the Palm platform Treo's, but there are a lot of problems that come with owning one and as a multi Treo owner I have learned to just live with them and try new things to see if they will work, but the suggestion that I gave above has helped with my screen blackouts and made owning my Treo's much nicer then before.

Hope this helps,
