It sounds like maybe the screen got a crack, fracture in it. It is LCD and it 'looking like ink' kind of points in that direction. It will have to be replaced. If you are up to the task, many replacement screens are available on the internet. I would try eBay first, that is where I got my last one. But unless you are totally comfortable with opening up you m515, take to a service tech.

The top left corner of my screen is black, but when I press on the edge of the monitor the color comes back slightly, and there is a black blotchy line that almost looks like ink running between the...

The LCD is failing and it has either been impacted with something or the edges are leaking. When you press on it you are making a bad connection better. Replace it.

How do I turn up my earpiece volumne?

when connected, try putting your finger on the slide at the right of the phone as you look at it. ( No moving parts, just a pad. Look at it carefuly and you'll see what I mean) Sort of press and move your finger upwards. If you look at the screen a black bar appears. The more you move your finger the more the black bar moves right and the volume goes up.
The instructions are very dissapointing for this phone and to be honest I find it over complicated with dissapointing features. i.e hard to use with many problems that just aren't logical. Shame but hope above helps.

My t-mobile dash

Hi april_tula,

A big black mark (often looks like an ink blotch) on a mostly white screen usually means that the screen was somehow damaged/broken. The Dash is a rather good device; however, it's been known to experience cracked (inner) screen issues on a slightly more frequent basis than other comparable mobile devices.

The company that I work for sees this issue a few times a month with the Dash, and unfortunately it's just a matter of replacing it at this point.

I'm sorry this isn't a happier answer.
Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Dell axim

This worked for me and was found at ( The link may not work so below are the instrunctions.

This link will help you visualize the process:

Trobbins Instructions:
I have a Dell Axim and was frustrated that my screen was freezing up. I went surfing on the web and luckily stumbled upon the answer. There is likely a burned hole on a small thin mylar piece on the inside of the unit. Before you give up and throw it away, let me tell you how to fix it because it is easy enough that I was able to do it - and I am NOT a computer geek at all.
Back up the unit on your computer.
Take all batteries and the memory stick out.
Turn the unit over and carefull pull the black rubber feet from the top, the black rubber circles out of the bottom, and the black rubber side panels. They are stuck on with a rubber cement compound, so just pull carefully and try to preserve the sticky as much as possible.
Unscrew the six screws along the back and carefully open the unit. (Don't be's not working now so you've got nothing to lose!)
On the lower left corner you'll want to pull straight up and out the speaker connection - a small square plastic piece w/ metal prongs.
Just push it back out of your way so you can lift the motherboard out. When you pull it out, look at the bottom right hand side and you'll see a small thin mylar film. Look carefully at the left hand side of it and see if you see something that looks like a burnt hole. If so, that's the problem. It's causing some kind of communication problem with the screen. Here's all you have to do. Take a small piece of electrical tape and place it over the mylar film. Then put the pc back together in the reverse order of how you got it open.
Mine is working like a champ now!! It really is easy so don't be intimidated.
Hope this works for you as it did for me!

Let me know how it works and if you have any questions (grandgregojunk [at] - An Axim is a terrible thing to waste... when it's easily fixed.

Trouble syncronizing palm TX

If you look on your handheld, tap the Hotsync icon once.
This will tell you the last time your Palm was synced.

Also if you hold your mouse over the Hotsync icon on your computer in the bottom right hand corner, this will tell you a last Hot sync date.

See if the two dates/times match up.

You can do a search on your computer for a "hotsynclog" file, this will give you a detailed list of all the processes that occurred during your sync. I would see if there are any errors listed there.

Also, you may want to make sure the Palm names match up with what you have on your Palm and the computer. When you click Hotsync on the Palm once, a name should appear in the upper right-hand corner. This name should also appear in the upper right-hand side when you upen Palm Desktop. There will be a white box with a name showing and an arrow pointing downwards. Make sure the two are the same as well and see if your information appears then.
