    Howdy, I got myself another Cingular Treo but I've noticed one very very big problem: it won't turn off.

    Either waiting for the timeout or manually pressing the power button results in a the device turning off for a split second, then executing whatever command is assigned to the "HotSync button" in Button Prefs. I know that because I changed the program there and when trying to turn it off it will go there instead of HotSyncing.

    So what gives? Hard resets and a ful unbranding of the ROM didn't help. Hardware issue? It IS Hardware B as opposed to my other Treo which was also ex-Cingular, but Hardware A.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    did it do that before you installed the apps or after i had the same problem and it was related to an app conflict i forgot wich on but it was a pain in the *** to figure it out.

    Never had a single app installed, so I doubt it's an app conflict.

    do a hard reset and see if the problem persists. if so, try a zero-out reset.

    do a search if you don't know how to do either one of these.

    Sweeeeeeeet, the zero-out reset worked! Good call. Thanks!

    Not sure what I did will help you, but I actually opened up the case and cleaned the inside of the Treo as well. A friend of mine who's into electronics says that if it got wet before, chances are there's a bit of residual inside the machine. I opened it, cleaned it out, then did a hard reset first, then tried many times to do a zero-out reset. Got a Boot Loader most of the time, but I think one of those times worked because the Treo works now.

    I'll give that a try, my problem is probably also due to water since it started after I rode my bike in the rain (treo in a pocket that is supposed to be waterproof but you never know)
    I let it dry out for a while but no luck..

    The behaviour sure looks like a small short circuit in the palm connector making the treo think the sync button has been pushed..

    Yeah, that's what I thought too. Maybe airing it out in pieces works afterall...haha

    I opened it up and tried cleaning it but it looks like there is some corrosion under the connector I cant reach without removing it
