broken d-pad

i accidently dropped my treo to the floor, and then the d-pad is fell off. then i try tu put the d-pad back in. and turn out that i put it wrong, the upper side is should be the lower side.

wrong positioned d-pad cause the button hard to pressed. its kinda un-responsive.
at first it frustated me, because d-pad is the major button on treo. if it failed to response than you have to use stylus to do the work.

i try to re-plugged the d-pad, but it seem already glued back to it's container. then i look for needle. i push the needle betwen d-pad and treo body opening. then i try to levered out the d-pad, at first it seem not working, but on the second try it worked!

then i rotate the d-pad, put it back in. then d-pad function as normal

new 2400 mAh battery

3 weeks ago, i found out that my treo 650 battery is not functional as usual. it easily dropped and caused the phone to suddenly restart due to loss of power.

i think this is the time that i buy a new battery. because the current battery is already aging :)

so i contact several guy/store that might sold battery for treo 650. and to my surprise non of them has it. and one of them telling me, if i'm serious to buy from him, then he will import it.

because i need a new battery then i aggree to buy from him. and i order a seidio 2400 mAh for treo 650.

3 weeks later, the battery came.
whooho!, i'm happy. but then when i plugged the battery and charged it. no sign of recharging activity.
the treo keep shutting down after 30 seconds on. it keep saying something like "your battery is low, phone will shut down in 30 seconds."

the i examine this new battery. and i read on the back of the battery that it is for treo 680!. so i contact the guy who sell me this battery. but he said that no difference between treo 680' battery and treo 650's battery.

so i browse to seidio, on that page there's nothing that stated the treo 680's battery have compatibilty with treo 650. but, for treo 650's battery it has compatibility with Palm Treo 650/700w/700p/700wx.

and in the back of the battery it state diferent voltage between treo650's battery which is 3.6V and treo 680's battery which has 3.3V

so, the guy who sold me the battery said that he will check it out. and for the mean time he borrowed me a treo 700 battery that compatible with my treo.
