Re: won't power on

First thing to check: I assume you made sure the sliding lock switch (upper left side) was unlocked?

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.

How to change the internal battery on an axim x51v

I assume you're losing Time, Date and backlight settings? It's soldered to the circuit board on the x51 series, not a plug in like the x50's. In the x51's, it's not actually a battery, but a part called a supercap. That's a very big capacitor that wolds a lot of charge, technical stuff. Not for the novice solderer, the part's small and the board & other components are very heat sensitive. Check HTCGeeks or Mobilitysite for (too) many details about this repair. EASY WAY OUT: Some dude came up with an awesome little program you install to fake it out. You set it for how long it takes you to change your main battery and then run it any time you need to change it. It automatically records the start time and resets the clock to that plus x-number of minutes it takes you to swap batteries!!!! Waaay cool and a lot simpler than opening it up if that's not your bag!!! You can find it on either of the sites I mentioned above.

Once you forget the Password, your only option is to perform a Hard Reset on the device and reset back to Factory defaults. You data will be lost, as this is in place to protect you in case the device has been lost or stolen. If you have backups, or sync the device with Outlook, you can run a restore or re-sync the device to populate the data back into your device.

Hard Reset
NOTICE: When you do a hard reset, you lose all the data stored in your device
Flash memory, and any programs that you installed on your device.
Do a hard reset if:
  • You want to restore the device to factory default settings.
  • You forget your password and need to reset it.
  • Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have already attempted a soft reset.
NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you do a hard reset.

To do a hard reset:
  1. Press the Power button to turn the Axim unit On.
  2. Press and hold the Power button down while using the Axim stylus to press the Reset button at the same time.
  3. Release the Power button and the Reset button. The To clear all data in the memory screen appears.
  4. Press the Contacts button on the Axim to delete all of the data in the memory of the Axim handheld.
  5. Press the Mail button on the Axim to cancel the operation without losing data.

Have you tried hooking it up to the cradle or power plug? That should automatically kick the display on.

You don't say if the Axim crashed. If so, try hitting the reset button with a pen point on the back of the Axim. That should reboot it. Post back with how it goes.
