Re: align screen

Look at this

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.

Plugged in charger and get alignment screen Tosh e


The unit will not go past the alignment screen until it gets a good calibration alignment. Be sure to click as close to the little + marks with the stylus as you can. If the click is to far from where it thinks it should be then the alignment will fail and start over.

I hope this helps, if not let me know

My i-mate pocket pc screen does not get aligned

Hi. You should tap the screen with the stylus carefully and with a little bit more pressure, accurately on the cross sign evertime it appears. When you successfully tap each cross sign once, you would be able to pass to the other settings, but in case there is a problem passing though the screen aligning, here is a small tutorial about how to bypass that screen through your PC: ( Hope this helps.

Axim x5 Won't get passed alignment screen

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

Pass the align screen

Hey :), id be happy to help. You see, I too have a Ipaq except I had Ipaq 4350. Now, I too had the same problem you are having. The reason why you can't pass the align screen step is because somehow you have damaged your screen. And I have come to the conclusion that HP Ipaq's screen is extremely sensitive, ( because I never did anything that bad to my screen for it to be damaged) soo I'd recommend for you to call HP and see if they can repair your problem or give you another one. Thank you and I hope this helps!

Passing allign screen test

I am not an expert on this. But I just had a problem similar to this as the unit kept reporting a FAIL on the screen calibration test. So this is what I did and after I did this, the screen calibration passed.

I went back to the screen alignment tool and performed a screen alignment with the stylus and this solved my issue. I then checked the self test aand it passed. This may not workfor you, but you can try it. Also you might want to check to see if you have any third party programs that are affecting this. The only way, you'll know is to remove those third party programs, one by one and repeat the self test to see if this corrects the problem. Good Luck
