Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
I have had my Axim X5 for four days and find that the record hardware button will not activate recording when it is pressed. I first open a new note and then press the record icon to bring up the sound recording toolbar at the bottom of the screen. If I tap on the round record button with the stylus the Axim starts recording. Instead if I press and hold the record hardware button down for a few seconds, nothing happens. I hear the button click when I depress it and I keep it held down for a few seconds. I checked the button assignments and it is set for Record. When I change the assignment to launch a program such as Inbox or my calculator, then depressing the record hardware button launches the assigned application. My conclusion: the record hardware button is not mechanicaly defective. The unit is capable of recording and playing back sound. So why doesn't the record hardware button activate the recording function
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.
This site will help with how to take off rubber part and open the Axim: http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GHT&Category_Code=_axim_takeapart
