I don't get it...my Treo 755p is only a few weeks old, and suddenly, one day, the screen just stopped illuminating. Oh, I can read the screen...BARELY...when I hold it up under another light source...but basically, the screen has gone dark and nothing I have done thus far will fix it. I've tried resetting, looked for some kind of lighting options under "settings," nothing I've done will help. Am I basically just out of luck and need to bite the bullet and swap-out for another phone? Has ANYONE ELSE out there experienced this sort of problem? I anxiously await a reply...

When you see the first screen (the orange one) hold the UP button as the bar moves across the bottom of the screen. Let go right before the screen goes to the silver logo. If it continues and opens Prefs, then you need to delete the program causing it to reboot.
If that doesn't work, do a Hard Reset. A Hard Reset will erase everything on your Treo, so only do it if you have to. Google how to and it will work perfect.
Hard Reset Palm Treo 755p or 700pPalmTreo 755p or 700p. 1. Disconnect the Treo from a charger or USB cable. 2. Remove the battery cover and take out the battery. 3. Press and hold Power/Endwhile you insert the battery. 4. When the screen lights up with the logo appears, releasePower/End. 5. Press Up when the Erase all data? prompt appears. 6. Press Up to confirm the hard reset. 7. Go through the steps of setting up the device again by picking a language and calibrating the stylus.
Now your Treo 755p/700p is hard reset. you should have your info on a folder on your computer. hope this helps.
Try recalibrating the touch screen. Devices with touch screens need to be recalibrated in order to respond properly. The greater the use, the more often recalibration is necessary. I recalibrate my phone once a week. I hope this helps.
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.
I have the same problem with my Verizon treo 755p. It will dial but I can't hear anything from the other end. I can receive calls but when I answer, I can't hear the person on the other end. I guess I need to visit Verizon to have them look at it or give me another phone.
Ok theres two ways to do this, heres 1 way: press menu while you our on the phone display (the button to the right of alt) use the 5 way navigator to move to the right, scroll down to phone display options. Below the Show Dial Pad/ Show Wallpaper, you'll see where it says typing dials phone number change that to typing starts contact search. This will permanently make it liek your old treo. If you wanna dial numbers press the white button to thte left of z and start dialing the numbers.
Version 2: If you dial normally it will dial numbers, if you press th white button to the left of z then type contact name also works.
I think your phone is going into to keyguard mode. Push the Red power button on the top right of the keyboard. Should come up with a keyguard lock screen at the botton of the screen. Push the center button on the 5-way navigation and you phone should function normally until it goes into to keyguard again. You will find the settings under preferences to either turn keyguard off or to adjust the time on it.
