Question about Palm Treo 755p Smartphone

Selected com port not available

Today when trying to Hotsync, the connection between the handheld and the desktop could not be established. I'm getting a message in Setup saying the selected com1 port is unavailable. An hour later it worked, but now it's not connecting again and the com port error message comes up. So it may be intermittent. THis has not happened before, at least not for any length of time because I've always been able to sync over the last couple years and with my Dell XP purchased in January. Any ideas ??

    All of a sudden my palm won't sync to outlook. When I push the sync button on the phone it goes to the menu on the phone but nothing happens on the computer. The last succesful sync was on June 17th.

Can't get device to hotsync


First thought is that the cable has become defective - they do go wrong.

Assuming the visor is fine other than when hotsyncing, I suggest you reinstall the Desktop manager and hotsync manager on your PC or Mac, HAVING BACKED UP ALL FILES of course.

Sometimes the managers get corrupted and cause problems. Try that first, then check cable and finally a hard reset, assuming you have hotsynced recently and so won't lose loads of information.

you need to install again the software/driver of your device... it seems that your technician done a system restore on the unit or he remove/deleted files which associated with the hotsync software.

Hotsync (on its own) Problem


i have fixed this issue.

you must open up the phone a little ... with a soft tooth brush and clean around the connectors ... you probably spilled something and some rust has made a connection across some of the bus lines near the bottom of the device.

also clean near the bottom on the circuit board almost immediately right next to where the battery is.

Hotsync problem


With a USB 1.1 machine .. try this ...My work around - disconnect ALL USB devices from the computer, NO multiport hubs, make a direct USB connection to one of the available open ports, then reboot the computer. Upon gaining control, then try to hotsync. If I had any other items connected or ran any other programs prior to hotsync, I was not able to perform a successful hotsync. The qwerks of the T5 and the sync conduits. Hope this helps Bob

hi, on ur palm tap on home , u would see hotsync icon tap on that , on the hotsync page , u would see ur name on top or just welcome , make sure u see direct serial on the same page , tap on the top left corner where it says hotsync in words , in the drop down , tap on lan sync prefs , make sure local hotsync is darker in shade. on the pc make sure u see the hotsync manager at the bottom right corner , if not , click on start , click on all programs , choose palm desktop , inside that u would see hotsync manager , left double click on that , if it doesnt appear at the bottom right corner , try 4times , then if it still persists , restart the pc and try again. Once u see the hotsync manager at the bottom right corner , right click on that , left click on setup , left click on local , choose a different com port , reduce the speed to 9600 , click on ok restart ur pc and try hotsyncin , if it doesnt work try the previous step again and do not forget to restart ur pc , and then perform a hs , it will work ....
