I believe if you are a bit of a hands on type of person you should be able to do this yourself.
but not without researching !

read this page, should tell you everything you need to know, from the perspective of someone who had to do the same changing of the CMOS battery.

quoted from: Tenc hi4U

DISCLAIMER : I take no responsibility for any damage you may cause to your Axim. The parts and proecedures described in this guide refelct my own experience with my own Backup Battery (BuB) in my girlfriend's Axim X3. Your mileage, parts, anbd experience may vary.

Tools needed for successful BuB replacement:
1. fine tip jeweler's screwdrivers (helpful if you slightly magnetize the tip)
2. Varta V20HR rechargeable NiMH battery
3. electrically conductive silver epoxy
4. strong needlenose pliers
5. electrical tape or heatshrink (razor blade or scissors to cut to shape)

But here it is step-by-step:

1. Pop little rubber caps from 4 corners of back covers. Disassemble Axim X3 with small jeweler's phillips head screqwdriver. Be sure to plave all parts in a plastic bag or other container (4 scres rear cover, 2 screws near port). Disconnect the ribbon connector towards the bottom of the PCB and the speaker wire (also on the lower portion of the PCB). Backup battery should be the green covered circular item under the pcb).

2. Locate backup battery, Cut away BuB cover, & CAREFULLY use strong needlenose pliers to grip and "roll" the leads off of BuB.Be very careful with the leads.

3. Mix dime sized batch of silver conductive epoxy (do NOT hot solder this battery, heat will lead to BuB damage and destroy lead connection to wire).

4. Apply epoxy to both sides (not too much)and afix respective leads to respective side (red lead goes to +, black lead goes to -). Secure connections with some type of clamp (I used a binder style paper clip, but a wooden close pin or something else that will hold the leads to the BuB while the epoxy cures (Mine took 24 hours to cure).

5. Recover new BuB with protective covering (I use electrical tape cut to the shape of the BuB. Covering WILL have to be form fitting to fit back into Axim BuB "slot".

6. Reassemble and charge Axim and charge.

How do you install downloaded programs on the Dell Axim X30?


Downloaded programs can be installed onto the Dell Axim X30 using Microsoft ActiveSync. Microsoft ActiveSync can be installed onto your computer using the Dell Companion CD which came with your Axim X30.
Once Microsoft ActiveSync is set up on your computer, if the program you downloaded came in an installer file, then double-clicking on the file will start the installation wizard and the software will be automatically transferred to the Axim.
If the program you downloaded did not come as an installer file, then double-clicking it will bring up an error message. In that case, use ActiveSync Explore to copy the program file to the Program Files folder on your Axim.

No wifi, how do i get on internet


This model of the Axim X30 does not have built in wi-fi capability. You need to purchase a 802.11 b/g Wireless SDIO card.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT INSERT SDIO CARD INTO AXIM X30 BEFORE INSTALLING DRIVERS.

1. Connect the Axim X30 to your computer.
2. Establish a connection between the two devices using Active-Sync.
3. Insert CR-ROM which ships with the SDIO card in your computer.
4. Follow instructions for installing Driver an Utility.
5. Install SDIO card into the SD slot on the Axim X30.

Axim x30 won't come up


The Dell Axim X30 be soft reset by pressing the "Reset" button (from the stylus tip) on the rear of the unit, below the battery.


If the Dell logo in blue background lights up and then goes off again, its probably the brightness setting of your unit. Once the device has started up, just press and hold the jog wheel (the volume wheel above the headphone jack on the left side of the PDA) and press the UP directional key in the front bottom of the PDA. Every press of the up key should brighten up the screen a bit.

If the above solution does not work, you probably might need to hard reset your device.
WARNING: A "hard" reset wipes the RAM and returns the Pocket PC to its factory defaults. You might (mostly) lose all your data if you perform a hard reset. Do not hard-reset your device without having a backup of your data.


The procedures for hard resetting your ppc is given in a very detailed steps in the following page:

Dell axim x 30 backup battery wont work


--This is a suggestion. I can not be certain given I have not worked on this device. --

Sounds like the backup battery is dead and needs to be replaced.

Researched The battery, and it is a standard flat-cell available at Radio Shack.

Taking the device apart will void the warranty.

The device is assembled in a standard click-tab and possibly some small hidden screws.

A plastic screw-driver or non-marring wedge tool is best.

Simple work your way around its edges until a gap forms and gently feel towards a portion that will not separate. Get a tool in there and gently pry away from the device to disengage the clips, rinse and repeat.

Upon removing all the tabs, remove the back panel slowly to assure that there are no wires connected to the panel itself, you should see the battery.

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!
