Its a software problem. RESET your phone to factory SETTINGS and then it will be ok again.
But by doing this you data may be lost. SO please take a back up before that.

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.

Even after I replace my backup battery with a new battery I keep getting a pop up screen telling me the battery is low and I may loos all my info & etc.What can I do to prevent this ?


had this trouble myself. I discovered that the backup battery was slightly indented on the top, so it was not making proper contact. Swapped it for another and it was ok. I had tried lots of batteries, though, and surprisingly quite a few had this little dent just enough to stop the X5 recognising the batter.

another thing to try: if you remove the battery and look underneath, there are three tiny golden arms which make the contact. Make sure they are all slightly lifted at the ends. If not slide something flat and non metallic underneath and bend each one up gently. This helps ensure good contact.

Dell Axim PDA backup battery


There is a small wafer type battery inside the case. Similar to a CMOS battery in a PC. You need to replace it. You can do it yourself if you have the right tools, i.e. tork drivers. Battery is around $4.00 .

Backup battery on Dell Axim X5 varies on charge left, even after complete charge. One minute it's 100%, then 0%, then 100% again within a few minutes


Install Active Sync latest version off of the Microsoft site. Turn off automatic SYNC ..... change it to manual sync.

Then check the connections on the watch battery----- you may need to add a piece of tape to the battery lid to get a tight connection. Carefully bend out the tab that contacts the battery. Wipe the battery off with a clean rag before installing.

Dell X5 backup battery


Hello,

I will attempt to answer both questions and give some insite.

1st- No, the charger does not recharge the backup battery. The battery is the same kind of battery as you would have in a watch which at this time are not rechargable, but that would be a great idea.

The way it works is that when the main battery is charged the X5 uses that as its energy source. Only when the unit is off and or the main battery is depleated does the back-up battery kick in. Hence the name (back-up battery).

As for a solution to your problem. It sounds to me like you have a problem with your primary battery. I don't believe that it has much time left or it may just be a corrosion problem. I would try clening the battery contact point on the battery as well as on the X5 with some alcohol and a q-tip. I would also check the contacts where the back-up battery is. I have worked on watches before and their batteries will sometime cause some corroding.

Dell axim x5 back-up battery


It is a knows issue for the backup battery not to take charge once they reache 0%. The backup battery is a pretty crappy NiCD cell. As the job it is supposed to do is pretty important I recomand to have it changed. For most PDA's this is a standard 3V battery. You should have your pda dissasembled and either have the battery manually charged (to see if the PDA can handle it later) or simply have it changed. This shouldn't be an expensive repair. For more info, feel free to reply. Good luck.

Restoring Backup to New Axim


The backup utility included on your Dell Handheld will backup your data to a storage card. You can restore on your replacement handheld from that storage card. From your Host PC, you can go to Tools | Backup/Restore and do a backup to the Host PC, and you can then restore after syncing the replacement handheld for the first time.
