Dell Axim X 50 blinking power button

I've owned my X 50 for over 2 years and all of a sudden the power button is blinking orange. I checked and it is fully charged. Any ideas?

Re: Dell Axim X 50 blinking power button

My power button was also blinking orange/green/orange/green. I pulled the battery and put it in the back of the cradel. It still blinked there too, orange/green. So I bought a battery. Does this sound like your issue?

Dell Axim X50 PDA won't turn on

try a hard reset

Dell Axim x50 / x50v / x51 / x51v:

Make sure the device is on before performing hard reset. To hard reset, press and hold the power button and press in on the reset button (reset hole) on the back of the unit for about 2-3 seconds. Release both buttons and you will see a confirmation screen asking you if you would like to clear all data in memory. To do so press the Contacts button. To cancel press the Mail button.

IT may be that the mainboard is faulty and would need to be replaced.

My Axim X30 would not turn on using battery power but would turn on when connected through charger adapter.
1. Connect AC adapter directly to the charger adapter and then to the Axim X30 and to the electrical outlet.
2. Charge battery until power button is solid green.
3. Press the power button to power on.
4. Remove cable from cable connector leaving the cable connector connected to the Axim X30. The Axim X30 will remain powered on.
5. Turn the Axim X30 off.
6. Turned the Axim X30 on using battery power.
7. Remove cable connector from Axim X30.

When charging my axim X30 on the cradle, the on-off light is blinking from green light to amber consistantly... when I remove the device from cradle the device does not turn on at all.. I have replaced the...

It sounds to me that your "original" battery, the one that causes the blinking when charging is completly drained dead, causing it to show an error by blinking the light.
I have one of these PDA's and have never had that problem, I also have a larger battery as well, and it works great. I suggest recycling the other battery, and possibly purchasing another larger one for back up,
Good luck!

Dell Axim 50 suddenly will not turn on.

Press the power button and the left side record button simultaniously for about 10 seconds. Usually this problem happens when the primary software image cannot be located or is corrupt. Also check to ensure your SD Card is in properly. If that doesn't do the trick upgrade.

There is only one way that I know of from DELL and is performing a "Hard Reset". You will loose all your loaded programs and data loaded in Flash memory in the process:
1. With the Axim turned ON, press the Reset button until it clicks and hold it, then
2. Press the Power button, then
3. Release the Reset button, then
4. Release the Power button.
When you see the prompt on the screen, press the "Contacts" button to reset the Axim to factory defaults. You can also choose to press the "Mail" button if you need to cancel the reset process. :)

Axim 50 will not turn on

I suggest making sure the lock switch on the upper left side of the PDA is not in the lock position. I had this problem and I think that I just bumped it into the lock position. This lock switch prevents any buttons from being a input to the PDA. Hope this helps, Duane.

X50v hardware problem I think

Take out battery, put cover back on. Plug to cradle and turn on. Then do soft reset while on the cradle working. After, turn off , remove from cradle and install battery. Turn on with battery only.

Old unit not powering on

Hold down the power button and push the reset button. Then select the corresponding cancel button (unless you want to loose everything. If that doesn't work, pull the battery and the backup battery. You will loose everything but it might bring it back to life.
