    The "Option + Find" combination is not working on my 700p. Any suggestions? I have looked in every piece of add-on software that I use for preferences and any key settings I may have changed, but this shows up nowhere. In case it matters, my main routine add-ons are:
    -TakePhone
    -LauncherX
    -FileZ
    -KeyCaps600
    -McPhling
    -mVoice
    -VolumeCare
    -Slap
    -TextPlus
    -VoiceMemo
    -PDANet
    Used to use the Find feature often because it scanned the entire Treo. Really miss it. Would appreciate any amd all suggestions. Thanks.

    What do you mean by "is not working"? Is it crashing?

    When I hit "Option + Find" keys, absolutely nothing happens. Regardless of what program I am in or what I am doing on the Treo.

    Do the option and caps buttons work when you're not trying to access the find function?

    I suggest that you:

    1. Hotsync, to backup your data
    2. Peform a Hard Reset and delete all data on your device

    Test it before restoring anything. If Option/Left_Shift still doesn't do anything, then it's a hardware problem; return it for a replacement.

    If it does work, then you know it's an side-effect of one (or more) of your apps. You should then:

    3. Rename your desktop /Palm/<username>/Backup directory (where <username> is some variation of your Hotsync ID) to, say, Backup.old.
    4. Hotsync

    This will restore your PIM data, but none of your 3rd party software. Reinstall your apps, one or two at a time, testing as you go; if the symptom returns, you should then have a good idea of who the culprit(s) is(are).

    You sure love challenges, don't you :-) !
    What you've documented is a great procedure for every time there is an issue to research. Have printed it for posterity.
    Now, as to the instant issue, will follow your advice step-by-step when my calendar says there is a free eternity. I have add-ons that go back to the first Pilot I owned.
    Seriously, will get to it following a 3-week project I'm faced with. But it won't be forgotten, or your help. Thanks, Bill.

    Mine did this today too. One minute it worked and the next it didn't. If I try to search now it just beeps like I hit a bad key. Both the option key and shift key work fine. Hope someone knows what to do!

    Well typed too soon. Did a soft reset and all is fine.

    Arlene,
    Joe's post made me realize that I didn't ask if you'd tried a soft reset. That may very well take care of it.

    Your little screaming shark is how I feel right now. I have re-set (hard and soft) so many times I can't count - but this time it worked! Thanks to you all. Now I can test prospectively, and try to use it after other applications and find out what makes it drop working.

    Here we go again. It stopped working. So I deleted the programs I had been using. Somewhere after numerous soft resets, it started working again. So I reinstalled each program, tested after each install, went into the program and played, tested again, resynced. It kept working fine. Then, I got on with my other life (Treo connected to computer the whole time), and just came back to the Treo and the Find function is not working again. Several soft resets later, still dead. If it's the Treo, how do I get a replacement from Sprint (I have the insurance) without paying the $50 deductible (bought the Treo May 2006).
