Question about Palm Treo 755p Smartphone
I've been experiencing no audio when I make an outbound call or receive one.
Have you heard of this problem. it happened after I started using a wired headset.
I have had this same problem from day one with my 755p. The issue is that the phone still thinks there is a headset plugged into it-even though there isn't one. I have heard it is because of poor welding. If you have the monthly protection plan you should be able to take it into a Sprint store and have them give you a new phone (I have done this twice now). For the meantime, you can stick a paperclip into the headset hole and toggle the switch. This is only a temporary fix. I have not heard of Sprint/Palm actually fixing the problem-it is probably cheaper for them just to give out new phones. I hope this helps...

I was talking to my wife using a headset on my way home when it disconnected suddenly & refused to establish contact again. Although it said I was connected, I couldn't hear anything. Been this way about five days till now. I was Just reading all of these Solutions, looked at my phone, & had the very savage & primitive idea of just blowing into the headset jack... hard. Well, I just dialed my voicemail. everything is working fine now, & looks like I'll be able to catch up, on all those calls i since last Saturday. Its not the most direct way of ACTUALLY fixing complicated electronic devices, but it sure was effective for me. worth a shot. :-/

AAAA!!! I have this issue and have been searching for the solution. The corrosion was the clue for me. A little Caig's DeoxIT (http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2104746) and it's back working. Radio Shack is sold out online but at least this is a pic and details you need to find it. I applied the DeoxIT to a headphone plug. Just a light coat. Tap off any excess. Put the plug into the jack and out several times.Waited a couple of minutes and it WORKS. I dried the plug and repeated the in/out process. A couple of times, the jack got stuck but it another cycle of in/out reset it. Tomorrow, a treatment of DeoxIT Gold and hopefully I'm set for the rest of the life of this phone.

Palm refuses to acknowledge that there is a problem despite the widespread posts on the internet about this specific issue!

I used an electrical contact cleaner that fixed my phone immediately, we will see for how long

I have no great solutions other than what everyone and their brother will tell you which is to backup your information and do a hard reset. However, I've also experienced this now on my 3rd 755p in which the audio is no longer functioning on phone calls. I'll be calling Palm. I'll let you know if there's a better fix or what transpires.

I killed two phones using a wired headset. The jack in the phone gets stuck (crappy connector) and the phone still thinks the headset is plugged in even when removed.

I went through 4 Treo 650's, even sent one in to have some guy in California re-do the jacks. Worked for a while, then broke again. With the 755, I tried WD 40, and worked the jack in and out. Worked great for a while. Now I'm waiting for my replacement unit to show up. Jeezzz this gets old!!!
