Question about Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC

Deleting a recording

I unintentionally recorded something on my Axim when I first got it and I can't seem to delete the recording by clicking on the file in the File Explorer window and choosing delete. It gives me a sharing violation error and won't get rid of it.

Re: Deleting a recording

You can try this, as I have an Axim X-50V. Make sure that all of your programs are actually shut down. When you close something on the axim it really just goes to standby for the next time you open it. If the program is open that accesses the file, it wont let you delete it, because it is in use. More importantly, go to this site and the people there can answer ANY question you may have, and in great detail. Honestly, people there know so much about the axim line that Dell's phone support techs have referred people to use it!

Self Diagnostic test

Having troubles with your Axim x51V?
You can allow the device to perform a self diagnostic test that will make it run a series of tests (CPU test, LCD test, RAM test, Interactive Button test, Sound and Recording test, Touch Panel test)
To enter the diagnostic area, Press and hold POWER and RECORD while pressing the reset button on the back. Continue to hold the POWER and RECORD buttons while releasing the reset button and wait for the screen to show the diagnostic window. Select the envelope icon button to begin the test or press calendar icon to exit and reboot without testing.

I have a dell axim x51v I made a password change and entere it into a digital rape recorder the recorder died on me and I do not remember the password as it happened 2 day after de change my cuestion is...

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.

Hard Reset:

NOTICE: When you do a hard reset, you lose all the data stored in your device
Flash memory, and any programs that you installed on your device.
Do a hard reset if:
  • You want to restore the device to factory default settings.
  • You forget your password and need to reset 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 do a hard reset.

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.

Dell Axim X5 Screen Back Light Trouble

Holding down the record button on these units turns the backlight on and off, since this is hardware controlled you should try this first. If you've performed a hard reset and held down record then this is most likely a physical fault, check with Dell to find out your warranty status and find out about the availability of replacement parts.

Delete voice messages

Find the file on your Axim, use the sylus and hold it down on the file name, a little red circle of dots will form around the file and bring up a menu for that file (kinda like right clicking on a file on your desktop PC), you can then delete it from there.

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.

This site will help with how to take off rubber part and open the Axim:

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.

NO file transfers are working!

Try deleting the partnership in ActiveSync on the PC, and then create a new partnership. I saw this problem, when I connected the first time to a PC. I tried connecting to a second PC, and had no problem. When I went back to the first, it required that I create a new partnership, and no problem with the connection.
