Question about Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Problem "booting" So, I let my battery drain down completely and resynced it with my desktop to charge the battery up. After a couple hours of it charging, the light changed colors like normal. However, when I turned it on, I had to proceed through the screen orientation setup (which was of no surprise). However, I can tap the screen for the point in the very center of the screen, but after that, nothing happens. It's like it's frozen in that one position. Is there a way to overcome this issue, or to "reboot" it? This is my first experience with PDA's, and overall, I've been pleased with it. I'd like to keep it around. If you can provide any possible solutions, it would be much appreciated.

Re: Problem "booting"

HI You may attempt a master reset (hard reset), it is described in your documentation that come with the pda. After the master reset, things should come to normal. If not there may be a problem with your ROM memory. The ROM memory stores everything Operating Sistem related, as well as program descriptions and the software installed by default by DELL. If the ROM memory becomes corrupt such issues may happen. In this case a ROM update/reflash is required. Please post back if you need more informations.

My sidekick 08 went completely dead and now when i plug it in says after it charges for a few minutes it will automatically turn on. its been a couple hours now on the charger and still wont turn on. does...

No, if you had that phone battery completely discharged for a long period of time, that will kill the battery, so from that point on, it will not hold it's charge. You will need to get a fresh new battery, that should solve the problem.

Palm tx keeps powering on and off . it was out of battery charge and when i charge, this is what it was doing.

It sounds like the power supply is intermittent. If the battery is completely drained it may try to boot and reboot. I suggest just leaving it charged for a bit and if it still does it then perform a semi-hard reset by pushing the button on back of the device and the follow the on screen instructions.

LG Viewty battery discharges quickly .....

Charging duration does not connect to battery lasting duration in any way.Optimal charging time is 3 to 4 hours.your battery will drain soon if you keep your touchscreen pressed continuously in your jeans pocket.Keep bluetooth switched off. Reduce the brightness of your mobile display. Play music threw headphone rather than using loudspeakers.

Stand by time is about 12 hours

Couple possibilities:

1. Old battery: After a couple years of use, the battery simply can't hold a charge as well as it used to. If you are using an old battery, try getting a replacement.

2. Replaced battery with a NON-Brand name: If you replace the battery with a lesser expensive pack from china, they will typically use an inferior set of cells. Use only the name brand batteries for best performance.

3. You're in a location where you cannot pick up a DIGITAL signal. If you are roaming or unable to pick up a digital signal, the cell phone will constantly be searching for a tower wasting precious energy. For best standby times, make sure you are receiving a digital signal.

4. Battery charger malfunction: If you're accustomed to charging your battery with a wall charger, try charging it from your cigarette lighter in your car or with a different charger. If it works longer after doing this, drain the battery and charge again the way you usually do. If you're back down to only 12 hour stand-by, the usual charger may be malfunctioning.

5. Make sure your backlight is not on all the time. If your phone has a setting to keep the backlight on, turn it off.

Good Luck.
