It sounds as if there is a small internal battery - something like a watch battery that should be keeping the clock going - I couldn't confirm this online but this was common in gps systems. It shouldn't be too hard to get to, probably have to take the back off, but it should be easy to replace. Hope this helps, please post again if not :)

How to change the internal battery on an axim x51v


I assume you're losing Time, Date and backlight settings? It's soldered to the circuit board on the x51 series, not a plug in like the x50's. In the x51's, it's not actually a battery, but a part called a supercap. That's a very big capacitor that wolds a lot of charge, technical stuff. Not for the novice solderer, the part's small and the board & other components are very heat sensitive. Check HTCGeeks or Mobilitysite for (too) many details about this repair. EASY WAY OUT: Some dude came up with an awesome little program you install to fake it out. You set it for how long it takes you to change your main battery and then run it any time you need to change it. It automatically records the start time and resets the clock to that plus x-number of minutes it takes you to swap batteries!!!! Waaay cool and a lot simpler than opening it up if that's not your bag!!! You can find it on either of the sites I mentioned above.

Dell Axim X50 PDA won't turn on


try a hard reset

Dell Axim x50 / x50v / x51 / x51v:

Make sure the device is on before performing hard reset. To hard reset, press and hold the power button and press in on the reset button (reset hole) on the back of the unit for about 2-3 seconds. Release both buttons and you will see a confirmation screen asking you if you would like to clear all data in memory. To do so press the Contacts button. To cancel press the Mail button.

IT may be that the mainboard is faulty and would need to be replaced.

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.

Have you tried hooking it up to the cradle or power plug? That should automatically kick the display on.

You don't say if the Axim crashed. If so, try hitting the reset button with a pen point on the back of the Axim. That should reboot it. Post back with how it goes.

My Dell Axim X5 pocket PC reverts to wrong date


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.

DELL AXIM X51 RUNS SLOW


Have you updated to the latest system utilities? (Formerly known as A12 English ROM image for X51v & A04 ROM image for X51, this is a newer update than those.)
The link to the instruction page is long - here is the direct ftp

Hope that helps.

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

Pc date keeps resetting to 01/01/2001


I can only presume thsi is an older handhels.
There is a small CMOS battery that has run out.
It may be a Dell only fix.
On a PC it is on the M/board.
Small flat battery like in a watch.
Take it out and get a new one from local watch shop or Jewellers or PC shop.
