Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

My Dell Axim X5 pocket PC reverts to wrong date

My Axim X5 thinks it's one month later than it is (e.g., Nov. 27 goes to Dec. 27). I reset the date repeatedly, and it holds briefly and then reverts. It won't accept Outlook calendar data synching from my PC for any appointments before Dec. 27. If I add an appointment to my PC Outlook after the date that the device thinks it is (e.g. Dec. 28), it synchs up fine. I have tried soft and hard resets with no improvement.

Duh... I figured out that my PC had the date set a month ahead! Not sure how that happened. The Axim was dutifully synching up w/ the wrong date, and so the November appointments didn't register. Thanks for checking.

We have a Dell Axim X5 that we are trying to connect to a PC. Have obtained a USB data/power sync cable, the Dell appears to charge from this cable however, ActiveSync on the source PC doesn't recognise...


I use AS 4.1. I think the Axim will use up to AS 4.5. I had no problems with sync until SP3 came out. Now I must resart the computer with the Axim connected to sync. If the computer goes into suspend it will no longer connect until restarted.

Attempt a restart with it connected.

I have known others with no ability to get the Axim and other devices to be recognized. Unaware of a solution in that case.

Axim X5 just does not RESPOND!


I'm not sure but after that long, could it be the back up battery?

My Dell Axim X5 400MHz Pocket PC wont hold the charge


Some people have said that the original ppc2002 ROM has battery draining problems. If this is something new, perhaps it is a bad battery. Ebay for a new one.

If you think it might be a software problem and you have ppc2002-also known as Windows Mobile 2002, upgrade your Axim with the A04 ROM:http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R63937&SystemID=PDA_AXIM_X5&servicetag=&os=PPC&osl=en&deviceid=4434&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=7&fileid=82832

Other Axim stuff here (make sure to choose the correct operating system - ppc 2002 or ppc 2003): http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/devices.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&SystemID=PDA_AXIM_X5&category=0&os=PPCA&osl=EN

Looking for a Wi-Fi card for a Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC


According to http://www.socketmobile.com/pdf/wireless-lan/go-wi-fi_spec.pdf it looks like you have to have Windows Moblie 5 or 6 or Windows CE.

The Axim X5 can only go up to Windows Mobile 2003 (Mobile 5 is the one after this).

My suggestion is sell the REALLY great Socket card and get one that works with your X5 (you have either Pocket PC 2002 or Windows Mobile 2003) If you Ebay search Dell TrueMobile, you'll find the card that works with either.

I need mine too, so it looks like we'll have a bidding war.

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.

Is it a problem with Axim -- automatical reset !


There are two different power conservation options that you want to look at. The first is in Settings -> Backlight and can control having the backlight turn off if the device isn't in use. The second is in Settings -> Power which has a setting to turn off the device after x minutes. That could be on, and that is what you are seeing. If the device is actually resetting itself (all running applications close), then you could have a bigger problem and you should contact Dell support.

Axim 5 upgrade path


Microsoft is well aware of the popularity of the iPAQ 3600 upgrades made available and that is one reason they mandated a Flash ROM with the new Pocket PC 2002 hardware. I am pretty sure MS will make an upgrade path available to the OEMs. It will then be up to Dell, Compaq and friends to make it available to the customer. Dell has always been good about that. As for the ROM size. The current Pocket PC 2002 image is 22MB. I have no idea how big the next one is or even when it will be out! Could be 2003 or 2004. MS has traditionally upgraded every 18 months or so on their PDA OS since 1998. IF that pattern holds true, 18 months from Oct 2001 would be spring 2003. We'll see. Ok, back to the ROM. Most Pocket PC 2002's have a 32MB ROM though a few have a 48. I think the 48 is primarliy to handle a big user file storage area in the ROM. I would be surprised if the next PPC increased more than 45% in size. It could though, but if I had to bet, though, I'd say 32MB would be plenty. Still - I'd look at the 48MB model for other reasons. 33% faster processor, 64MB RAM, included cradle.

How Do I Perform a Soft Reset on My Dellâ„¢ Aximâ„¢ X5 Handheld?


A Soft reset will only minimize and temporarily suspend any running programs on your Axim. If you are experiencing issues that require you to perform a Hard reset, refer to Dell Knowledge Base Article:
