Question about Dell Axim X50v Pocket PC

1 Answer

Dell AXIM x50v won't start.

I hadn't charged it for over a month, maybe more. and now, at charging (over more than 4 hours), it won't start. the darker amber light twinkles when no USB connection has been made. if both electric power and USD connecion are plugged, the amber light keeps forever.

what should i do?

Note: The following is a quote of someone else: I had the same prob. Went to dell site and found this. Take out battery. Put the cover back on. Attach to cradle and turn on. While it is on, do a soft reset. Turn off, take it out of the cradle and put battery back on. Try turning on with battery only.

Know it worked for me except for the last part. when i replace the battery it won't run on...again. tell me what happens with you ^_^

No charge

I bet the battery can't hold a charge anymore. Is that battery a replacable item?

Power button flashing

Clean the battery connectors on both sides, so on your Axim and on your battery.
Also try to push the battery against the connectors, maybe put a sheet of paper between it or so.
