Please see if you press any of the buttons it swtiches or on or if you receive a call..
another option is that you could remove the battery and reiinsert it..most devices restart..also check if the device has a reset button at the bottom,pressing that also starts the device(it does so on most PDAs and pocket pc phones)hope it helps!

I forgot my password


Hi, Once you forget the Password, your only option is to perform a Hard Reset on the device and reset back to Factory defaults. You data will be lost, as this is in place to protect you in case the device has been lost or stolen. If you have backups, or sync the device with Outlook, you can run a restore or re-sync the device to populate the data back into your device. To do a hard reset:
  1. Press the Power button to turn the Axim unit On.
  2. Press and hold the Power button down while using the Axim stylus to press the Reset button at the same time.
  3. Release the Power button and the Reset button. The To clear all data in the memory screen appears.
  4. Press the Contacts button on the Axim to delete all of the data in the memory of the Axim handheld.
  5. Press the Mail button on the Axim to cancel the operation without losing data.
  6. THANK YOU

Data


if you managed to turn the phone on, i can assume that you charged it back up again, if so, i cannot understand what the screen re aligning has to do with losing any data as the screen re-aligning is normally to do with setting up the touch screen so that when you touch a specific part of the screen, it knows exactly what you are wishing it to do regards the shortcut or menu. You should be able to collect any data or addresses using the software provided and a usb cable enabling you to sync and transfer all entries to your pc, if you have Vista this is can be done automatically when you connect as your pocket pc is instantly recognised.

My phone wont go past the att screen


I'm afraid you'll have to hard reset your device. Be warned that you'll loose all application you have installed, as well as your personal data. Anyway, I don't see any other option to overcome your present condition. Here it is, anyway:
Turn your device off. Then, press both the Up Navigation key and the power buttons, until the process starts, If a confirmation key is requested, try '0000'.

Hope you are able to sort your problems out.

Cheers! Carlos

How do I reset my dell axim pocket pc back to its original settings?


Hi there,

Performing a Reset
Soft Reset
When you perform a soft reset, the device deletes any data that has not been saved but saves any data that has been stored in memory. Try performing a soft reset if the device does not respond when you tap the display or press a button.

To perform a soft reset, use the stylus to press the reset button.

Perform a hard reset if:
•You want to delete all the data stored on your device.
•You forget your password and need to clear it.
•Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have
already attempted a soft reset.
NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you perform a hard reset. See ActiveSync Help on your computer for more information.
To perform a hard reset:

My camera stop working on my lg ks 20. its just not opennig, stay black??


...it looks like a hardware problem with the camera device. Anyway as I adviced many times, a hard reset before running to a service center is a good choice, as there is still a chance that some software issue is behind. But remember - before hard reseting always backup your data (phone numbers, emails...), otherwise you will lost them:

1. Turn off the LG KS-20 completely (do this by pressing and holding the power button and wait for the prompt).
2. Press and hold these three buttons–volume down, Call and power–till the LED (this is beside the front camera) flashes.
3. Release the buttons. That same LED should flash blue/red/green and power up.
4. The KS20 should be in a clean state.
5. Now try the camera function - if it still doesnt run then go to LG service center

1 Hold down the power (on/off) button on your device. 2 While holding down the power button, turn over your device so that you can see the back of it. Still holding the power button, use an unfolded paper clip or a similar small object, to gently press the RESET hole on the back. 3 When the Palm Computing Platform or Palm Powered logo appears, release the power button. 4 A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld.
