Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Program Buttons If I push a program button when the X5 is 'off' (in standby mode) it will come alive but will not launch the linked application - that requires pushing it a second time to launch the app after the unit is on. Anyone else notice this? It should turn the X5 on AND launch the app with one push.

On IPAQ hx2700, how do I do a hard reset? I want


Performing a Hard Reset

Perform a hard reset only when you want to clear all
user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM
(Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have
loaded are stored.

CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data
and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to
lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ
Pocket PC for about two seconds.
3. When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the
Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus
from the Reset button.

Note: If you simultaneously push and hold the Reset, Calendar,
and iTask buttons for more than two seconds, the battery
disconnects. To restart the device, either plug the device into the
AC Adapter or press the Reset button again.
After performing a hard reset, you may need to reinstall
applications stored in iPAQ File Store to restore shortcuts and full
functionality.

4. The Pocket PC resets and powers on.

To return your iPAQ Pocket PC to factory settings after
performing a hard reset:

1. Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer > My Device.
2. Tap the iPAQ File Store folder to open it.
3. Tap Edit > Select All.
4. Tap and hold the selected files, then tap Delete.
5. Tap Yes to delete all file in iPAQ File Store.

Phone hang and momery full


You transfer all the files stored in the device memory to storage card by using the file explorer or by connecting the same with the PC.

Sync all the data including the note calendar etc with the computer using the Windows mobile device center (you can download the same in the link http://en.kioskea.net/telecharger/telecharger-409-windows-mobile-device-center ).

Click on the clear storage by navigating start>settings>system>clear storage and verify the same by 1234.

Caution all the software will be removed and it can be restored by means of the launch program in the computer start menu.

After the phone is restored to the original state sync the phone with the PC and use the launch program to restore the installed applications.
Make sure to install all the applications in the storage memory and the data too.

Resetting the Device

Sometimes there is a need to reset your Pocket PC. Resetting the
device is known as performing a "soft" or "hard" reset.

Performing a Soft Reset

A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any
programs or saved data. Be sure to save any unsaved data within
a running application before performing a soft reset.
Perform a soft reset to:
■ Stop all running applications
■ Install a new application
■ Restart the Pocket PC if it stops responding

To perform a soft reset:

1. Locate the recessed Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ
Pocket PC.
2. Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button.
The Pocket PC restarts and displays the Today screen.




Performing a Hard Reset

Perform a hard reset only when you want to clear all
user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM
(Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have
loaded are stored.

CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data
and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to
lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ
Pocket PC for about two seconds.

Power Button


Hi Monkeycdo,

There's a program that gives you the Windows XP shutdown window to turn the Axim off (http://classic.pocketgear.com/download.asp?product_id=6666)
the main page is: http://freewareppc.com/utilities/shutdownwindowsxpstyle.shtml

However, you can also adjust the power settings to turn the unit off after a certain time of inactivity.

If the power on is a problem, the power control settings have an option to "Turn on Device" if a program button is pressed. Check that option and in the future you can press the bottom buttons on the front and the unit should come on (you will have to close the program window that you requested when you pressed the button);

let me know how this works (grandgregojunk [at] yahoo.com) or if you have any questions.

Good luck,
Greg

Launcher x


if you mean "quick install" -it is full of bugs. A new beta-replacement for this useless install program is now posted on the palm site. That will install and launch applications correctly. It has taken them over a year to figure this out - that the launcher does not work, if programs are installed with quick-install. good luck

The P300 has 3 kinds of reset mechanisms, 1. Soft Reset: you can keep all DRAM data. Procedure: Push the Reset button 2. Hard Reset/Save SDRAM -- Use hard reset/save SDRAM mode to reset the MobilePro P300 without losing the data in SDRAM. Use this mode if the safe software reset mode doesn't improve system operation. Procedure: Reset Button and Power Buttons at the same time. 3. Hard Reset/ Clear SDRAM: You will lose all data. Use to reset the MobilePro P300 and delete the contents of SDRAM.

This is also referred to as a hard reset/clear SDRAM. **Caution** This procedure will delete all user installed applications and user data. If necessary, back up your data before performing the hard reset. Procedure: Push the Reset, Power, and Record Buttons at the same time

Contacts button and Start menu item not responding


Since "Contacts" on the start menu fails at the same time as the button, it is more like that there is a software problem, and the button cannot open the applet that is failing. If you want to ensure that you do not have a hardware problem, try remapping the button to open another application. You can do this by going to Settings/Buttons. You might want to try using the Task Switcher, which you can turn on in Settings/System. When you encounter the problem with Contacts, then click on the Task Switcher and see how many programs are open. Use the Taks Switcher to close all the programs, and then try Contacts again and see if it works. Most applications do not close, and if you have many open applications, then it will degrade performance.

Axim Record Button Does Not Work


Try taking off the left black rubber stripping and see if the button underneath is lined up correctly. Perhaps take a look inside to see that all the contacts are good.

Remote Control Earphones


When using either Windows Media Player or Windows Media Player 8 on your Pocket PC e570 you will need to program Media Player to recognise the button functionality of the Remote Control Earphones by following these steps: Select Tools, Buttons. Select each individual function and press the relating button on the remote control. After all buttons have been programmed, press OK which should take you back into Media Player. N.B. The remote control buttons will not function when playing back voice recordings as the earphones can only be used for listening in this mode.
