Question about Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC

5 Answers

Dell Axim x51v that will not power on.

One day it was working fine and now I cannot get any lights on. I checked the battery and it's has plenty of power. I haven't checked the charger. I think it just died. Should I even try to get it fixed? This has been a bit of a lemon from the start. No wonder Dell no longer supports it!

Assuming the battery is not dead, try taking the battery out for a few seconds to be sure the PDA is turned all the way off. Put the battery back in and close the back. Use the stylus to hold the reset button in (on the back) while you press and hold the power button. If the battery is dead do this while it is connected to the charger. It should diplay a message telling you to press the mail button (to the left of the cursor control button) to the reset to factory defaults. Caution this will erase everything in the built in memory including any programs you installed after you recieved it.

Hope this helps

I have a similar problem, where the unit will not power up. I found it to be the back cover interlock. The little latches on the back cover has to press down on the interlock for the unit to power up. I added a small piece of tape to increase the pressure on the interlock, sort of iffy, but it worked on my pda. But this wouldn't work with the extended battery.

I have installed a 8GB SD card in my Axim X5, but cannot seem to access it. Does it need to be formatted, and if so, how?

I have the same problem. Its from an over sensitive switch. You arent actually opening the battery case you are pressing against it. This triggers the switch and makes it think you are taking the battery latch off. I haven't actually tried it but you could open up the Axim and cut the cable going to that sensor/switch?

I have the same problem. I've found that the Innopocket magnum case will hold the cover in place and pretty much stop it doing this. Unfortunately, the case won't fit if you have an extended battery. I've tried taping down the cover with some success, but the hard case worked better.
