Question about Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC

Sudden death of Dell Axim X30

My Axim 30 was working well and I have no problem or signs of something is going wrong. One day, while I was using it, it suddenly stopped working. It did not respond to the soft reset so I tried the hard reset. Temporarily it showed something that let me push one or the other botton to erase everything. Now it will not even turn on or respond to hard reset. I change battery thinking my old one was not good. The new one did not made it respond either. What else can be done other than throwing it away?

    Tapping with the stylus doesn't work anymore. I have performed a soft boot and hard boot and still nothing. I noticed that sometimes after I had tapped, it would be a delayed response, and finally no response at all. I have removed and reinserted the battery. Any ideas?

Hello edil, This sounds like a corrupted ROM file. The ROM stores all your operating system and pda's firmware alltogheter. If it becomes severely corrupt the pda doesn't boot properly or doesn't work at all. This appears like a fixable problem however you will need to have it fixed in a service center, because they need to acces your device's bootloader or rewrite it using some special hardware, then they will rewrite the memory with a fresh rom file. This will have you device up and working. However please avoid to send it to dell as this will get expensive. Most pda services are able to do this and the generic ones will do it cheaper. Try to look for a cheaper, generic "pda service" center. Hope it helps.

Dead pixel line?


Hi, The problem with pocket PC is that you can't do something to test and find if the problem comes from the display or the graphic processor. If the device is not too old, you can try to repair it. In case that the device is more than 10 years, buy a new one. Sorry.

I didn't wear my Michele CSX 36 w/ diamond watch for a few days..When I went to put it on the time was wrong. So I tried to correct it and now it has not kept accurate time w/in a 24 hr period. Fo


I am pretty 100 percent sure that Michele CSX 36 diamonds only comes with a swiss quartz movement not an automatic movement.
So the problem seems to be that the battery is dying and need to be replaced. Stopping and going is usually a sign of a battery dying in a swiss quartz movement.
So it should be nothing major and just a battery.

No cd for Dell axim 30


This isnt too bad, if you are using windows vista, the CD is obsolete, use the syncing technology in mobile device center to access the storage card/drive inside the pda form your computer and you can do it that way. Windows XP: you can go to the microsoft website and get Activesync which will allow you to transfer files as well. If you are using a mac, I am sorry.

all you havce to do is hook up the cradle to the USB port, and you MIGHT have to and i stress this because it will usually open on its own, you may have to open windows mobile device center, its in your programs menu, activesync is no longer used in VISTA, so any attempt to put it on will probably be stopped , once oyu plug in th ePDA check for updates, this will ensure that you have all the drivers for the Dell X30 (i)

Did it work


danld,
not sure what happened to my email to you. I will send it again. The solution to my problem was to use this web site http://www.pdasmart.com/aximpartscenterx3.htm. I bought the replacement assemble for the 3X axim. It might seem a bit pricey but it solved my problem. I have been using my axim ever since with no problems. They have a fast turnaround time too. I believe I got it back with a week or so. They also have good prices on replacement batteries. I have purchased two of them and they are working very well. Hope this helps you and anyone else that had screen problems. You can't get this model of axim anymore and I think it was worth the repairs I put into mine.

Touch screen freezing up


Look at this http://www.fixya.com/support/t132057-getting_past_align_screen

you basically need to get the wire to stop touching the home key, which can be accomplished (as described in the link) with either the quick fix method, wedging something in the bottom screen, or the better-long term method of opening the axim up and taping the part that has shorted.

best,

Axim Battery


The battery that comes with Axim is the standard 1440mAh; an extended battery with something like 3400mAh is indeed available as an option. According to some reviews of Axim, the standard battery is good for 8-10 hours of normal usage. One review said they played MP3s non-stop for 6 hours 22 minutes before the MP3 player stopped because of not enough power, but Axim still had another 16% on the battery which was good enough for about another full hour of standard usage. Audio and video will both cut down on how much you can expect from the battery, video much more so than audio. If you are planning on watching full length movies on an airplane from a 1GB Microdrive, I think getting the extended battery would be a good idea. I'll give this a try myself as soon as I get my Axim, which should be... drum roll... the day before Xmas, according to Dell.
