I've heard some keep aligning and after a time it eventually works. 200 to 300 times.

I tried 7 then took the advice of a techie that said to gently twist it like wringing out a wet rag. Put hands on the top and bottom and gently twist back and forth.

It worked for me.

Be gentle

All I get from my Axim x30 is the align screen. When I tap all the crosses it just stays in the middle but I dont get the home screen, not even after a soft reset.


take a credit card or bisiness card and slide it in between the edges of the screen gently this should fix the problem if not open it and clean the touchscreen contacts

Dell Axim X5 won't stop alignment. It says to tap the screen to align, but it never finishes the alignment. I keep tapping and can't get it aligned, thus the Dell can't be used cause the program never...


ok, i see your problem.You could clean the screen of your pda using a business card. Gently, wipe the corners of the screen. This is the best way as unresponsive screens occur due to lack of attention as dust migt be trapped under the screen.Hope this works.GOOD LUCK

Dell Axim5 Top Door is for Compact Flash car. the Battery Backup is the one to maintain the memory alive, but if you still have main battery good is supposed the memory remain until you go out of battery. I have one with some reason the battery backup do not function, so I have to backup all data.

Axim X5 just does not RESPOND!


I'm not sure but after that long, could it be the back up battery?

CRACKED SCREEN


It sounds like you only broke the outer layer, digitizer, which takes the stylus inputs. If the screen still shows properly, then your LCD screen is not broken.

I don't know about replacing the LCD screen, but to replace the digitizer, ebay the search words (axim, x5, digitizer) and find a $15 or so replacement.

Then follow these steps: http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GHT&Category_Code=_axim_takeapart

Any questions let me know. grandgregojunk [at] yahoo . com

Also, if your align screen should ever have difficulty responding in the future with the screen not cracked, check here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t540878-dell_axim

Best wishes.

Align screen


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.

Axim X5 Align Screen Loop


I am by no means an expert but I have had the same problem that you are having and I found that after I took my X5 apart and cleaned around the underside edge of the plastic housing frame that was at the edge of the screen the problem went away. I also cleaned the front of the screen very well and put a new back-up battery in. I have not had the problem since.

Getting past the 'Align Screen'


Had the same problem starting about 3 months ago with my Axim X5. Couldn't get the touchscreen to respond in order to input my password. However when I sync it to my computer I had better success at getting the touchscreen to work and respond. Tried the business card tip of sliding it between the touchscreen and metal cover/frame of the PDA and now it seems to work even better. Great tip. Hope it becomes the more permanent fix for getting my PDA touchscreen to respond. Mack
