Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Volume Problem? I am new to the Pocket PC world and have a couple questions. Regardless of how many times I adjust the volume settings on my Axim I get no sound. I can't even get tap sounds on the screen when I enable that function. Also, when I tap the microphone icon on the screen, it flashes for a split second and then doesn't allow me to use the microphone function. I've had no problems with the ActiveSync. Am I missing something with the volume settings, or is it something with the Axim itself?

Re: Volume Problem?

You say that your Settings; sounds and notifications, are all checked off, and volume slider is turned up. If you still don't have any sound from your speaker, plug in in your earphones and see if you hear anything. If so, you have a bad speaker or device problem. If you still don't hear anything with headphones, then ditto. Contact Tech Support for exchange.

My Dell x51v Axim suddenly no longer communicates thru ActiveSync. Even though it is firmly connected with a USB cable, ActiveSync will no longer recognize it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled...


Hi,

First try a "soft reset" - this clears all open programs and "reboots" the Pocket PC. When the Pocket PC powers back up, you'll start with all active programs closed and the device should be ready to use. This procedure is intended to reset the Pocket PC if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down.

This reset is also sometimes necessary after software is installed.

The X51v can be soft reset by pressing the recessed button on the rear of the unit above the battery.

Try to reconnect with your PC. If that fails - on the Axim - go to start - settings - connections - usb to pc and untick enable advanced network functionality - then see if you get a connect.

If you are still not getting a connection you will have to try a "hard" reset. However be aware that a "hard" reset wipes the RAM and returns the Pocket PC to its factory specs.

In effect, the Pocket PC will be just as it was when you purchased it.

All data entered, preferences set or software installed (other than ROM updates) on the Pocket PC after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to be transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync / Windows Mobile Device Center.

The hard reset is performed through the following procedure;

With the unit turned on, press and hold the power button at the top of the unit. While holding the down power button, use the stylus tip to press the "Reset" button mentioned above. Allow the screen to fade to off. Release both buttons. The unit will power back on and display a menu to confirm the hard reset request.

Make sure you have downloaded and are using the newest version of microsoft activesync.

Try the reconnect and let me know how you get on.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Thanks.

Axim x30 won't come up


The Dell Axim X30 be soft reset by pressing the "Reset" button (from the stylus tip) on the rear of the unit, below the battery.


If the Dell logo in blue background lights up and then goes off again, its probably the brightness setting of your unit. Once the device has started up, just press and hold the jog wheel (the volume wheel above the headphone jack on the left side of the PDA) and press the UP directional key in the front bottom of the PDA. Every press of the up key should brighten up the screen a bit.

If the above solution does not work, you probably might need to hard reset your device.
WARNING: A "hard" reset wipes the RAM and returns the Pocket PC to its factory defaults. You might (mostly) lose all your data if you perform a hard reset. Do not hard-reset your device without having a backup of your data.


The procedures for hard resetting your ppc is given in a very detailed steps in the following page:

Alarms will not work


I had a similar experience with my X51v. I solved it by looking to 3rd party software. The best one I've used to date is a small program that comes from Japan called GSAlarmClock. Definately give it a try. You won't be dissapointed. You can pick it up free from PocketPCFreeware

Instaling New Software


Don't know about that software specifically, but of those 3 choices, try the Compaq. The Axim's processor is backwards compatible with the one in the Compaq. (Well, it's the same as the one in the LATEST model HP, but usually when you see those three choices, it's to signify the 3 different processors each had. HP's latest model used the same as the Compaq, but their older models didn't..) Hopefully they aren't checking for specific devices, but just processor type.. Now, there is some software that is written specifically for the Compaq Ipaq because of it's video chipset, but not much.. (Tomb Raider comes to mind)..

Restoring Backup to New Axim


The backup utility included on your Dell Handheld will backup your data to a storage card. You can restore on your replacement handheld from that storage card. From your Host PC, you can go to Tools | Backup/Restore and do a backup to the Host PC, and you can then restore after syncing the replacement handheld for the first time.

Infrared Beaming Problem


My Axim is behaving the same way. I find that if I try to transfer something from my Palm IIIc to my Axim via infrared, it rarely sends the data immediately, and it often times out. I have found that I can often get it to work if I request the transfer on the Palm and then "stimulate" the Axim via tapping a menu selection or by momentarily blocking the view between the devices.

AXIM X5


To copy word documents, simply connect your device to your computer, click "Explorer" in ActiveSync, and then transfer the word document from your desktop to your Pocket PC. ActiveSync will do the conversion from Word to Pocket Word for you. As for wireless internet service, you need a wireless Compact Flash card and data service. Sprint is one of the few companies that offers this, and there is also the Pocket Spider from Enfora which can connect on some wireless networks.

Dell AXIM Screen


First, to dim/undim the screen, hold down the power button for a few seconds. A quick press will turn it on/off. Also, when dimmed, if you tap the screen, it should be fully lit. FYI...to change the brightness in either the plugged-in or battery mode, hold in the scroll dial on the left-hand side and press the navigation button (big round one on the front) either up (brighter) or down (dimmer). As for the time, tap Start >> Settings >> System (tab) >> Clock and see if your time is off by 12 hours.
