Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

Treo 650 won't turn on

It seems dead as a doornail, but makes two short angry-sounding beeps if i try to plug it into a charger. 

with an old treo 650, plugging in the charger resulted in a happy sound when first plugged in and the same two angry beeps when disconnected.  putting the new/dead treo's battery in it made the old treo 650 perfectly happy.

putting the battery from the old 650 into the new/dead one still only elicited the two angry beeps.

pressing the reset button did nothing.  removing the battery and waiting half a minute before replacing did nothing.

    my treo 650 won't turn on anymore after plugging it on a car charger. the batter felt warm and makes a faint popping sound when plugged in to the wall charger. no red or green light, hard or soft reset won't work. new battery did do anything.

    My treo 650 won't turn on. I tried a different battery which was fully charged but still won't turn on. I can only turn it on when I plug in the charger. At first the problem was when I turn it on it will only go on half way and the screen will go blank.

Ok, I think I have the solution to turn a palm 650 treo on, no matter what... Ok, take the battery out, hold down the button on the right side above the red ph one button, as you put the battery back in. Hold it and then release when the phone doesn't seem to be doing anything... and it somehow releases the network and other programs from jamming up! Hope this works for everyone out there, like it worked for me... I yelped a yahoo because I am girl and I just kinda figured it out as my dad, an engineer taught me to trouble shoot anything with batteries :)

My grandson's Palm Treo 650 will ot charge on wall, car or computer cords. No "drop" or "water damage" issues. He does not have his software. What sould I do now? Is there a reset button? Need he

Reset would not help with this kind of issues.

If it does not charge , and battery and charger are good, that means that there is a broken contact in the DC socket on the PDA, where you plug the charger.

The fix requires disassembly and a delicate soldering job on motherboard, and must be done at a repair shop.

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger

Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

Treo 650 "Dead Screen"

Try plugging in your Treo as if you were charging it.

Then click the reset button in the back.
This should reset the charging mechanism inside.
See if the Treo starts to charge again after that by letting it sit for 1-2hrs.
