Question about Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC
I just got my pda back from having the backup battery replaced. When I turned it on, there was no response to tapping with the stylus. I performed a soft reset - no luck. I performed a hard reset, and it wouldn't even turn on. I charged it all night. The green light was on, but it wouldn't turn on. I performed another hard reset. Now it turns on, but won't respond to a stylus tap.
Hi Try This Squeezing the Axim gently in normal holding position Placing the Axim in the sync cradle (I have no clue why this works) Doing a soft reset Shutting it off and leaving it alone. Then Re-Starting it. The Axim, despite its size and weight, is not as rigid as it should be. If the case flexes far (or often?) enough, you'll get the "not responding to taps" issue. If you have the problem now,call Support, and get an exchange. Don't worry about getting a refurb. I use lots of refurb equipment, and they are no more or less likely to fail than new equipment. Note that if you continue to flex the refurb's case like your original (I carried mine around in my pants pocket), it will eventually develop the same problem.

I don't know the reason why this worked but it did. Thanks
