It's not the cradle that's the problem. The problem is internal... a short in the **** poor wiring creating a short circuit. The internal wires need to be re-soldered.
Dell ditched the PDA line because it could not support it's JUNK. These PDAs were designed to break.

Mine has a cable connector that I will try and see if it works better than the cradle.

The original Dell Axim X50 cradles are just plain poorly desinged. The only cure that I can think of is to replace the cradle.

Cannot charge Dell Axim x50!!! I am using a USB data/power cable. I have it plugged into my 2.0 usb slot on the computer and its flashing green and orange, but it wont really charge. I have left it here...


if the bandwith on your computer is insufficient it will not recognize the connection. Try using a different USB port and you may find it works.

Does not recognize my connection for active sync


Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50 and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to a computer using a sync cable.
  1. p 1 The Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PCmag-glass_10x10.gif Companion CD.
  2. Step 2 The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
  3. Step 3 Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
  4. Step 4 Check the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync connection is successful.”
  5. Step 5 Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
  6. Step 6 Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.

My Dell PDA won't sync with my PC, although it used to?


1)If you get an error message from ActiveSync on your PC, it's one of a million things that can and do go wrong with another piece of Micr0$0ft'$ "finest". I wont even go there in this post. 2)If it just never gets seen by the PC, check your USB cable connection. 3)If the PDA doesn't even turn on and/or charge immediately when connected to the cradle, you may have a bad cradle. 3a)If the connector in the cradle feels lose or it DOES connect if you hold it a certain way, your cradle's broken. They're known for this.

Dell Axim X50 PDA won't turn on


Had the same problem. Did some research and fixed the problem by performing a "soft reset". Tap the reset indentation on the back once quickly. Do NOT hold it in or you will lose all saved data. Mine's working fine now.

Dell Axim x51 will not connect to system


windows vista uses its own sync software, which is available on the windows marketplace
if your vista is original you can upgrade to this software
if you use xp version, just keep using the usual active sync

Axim wont automatically shut off


I would guess your light should dim after 5 minutes. But I bet your axim wont shut off for 2,3, or 4 hours. My battery is wonderful so I have it shutting off after 2 hours.

Help active sync will stay in limbo attempting to connect to cradled axim


Does your system detect the handheld? After you connect the cradle or cable to the computer, then you should be prompted to install drivers for the handheld. Make sure that Dell Pocket PC appears in the Device Manager.
