Question about Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC

Dell Axim51v Won't power on?

PDA charges and indicates full charge (green light). Product is 2 years old and now won't power on (or syncronize). Have tried product on both bases and the problem remains. Have tried removing the battery and then replacing it.

Any help would be really appreciated as i really rely on my PDA!

The problem may be that the switch that recognizes when the battery door is on is either not engaging completely, or not working. With the battery door off if you look very closely inside the LEFT pocket that latches the cover (to the left of the sliding latch button) you will see there is a tiny rectangular raised spot in the bottom of that pocket, at its right end. You will not see that in the right pocket. The bottom of the left pocket will move up and down slightly, as does that raised bump upon it. I believe the actual battery cover switch is UNDER that left pocket. To prove it, I tried to turn on my X51 with the cover removed, and it won't come on. Then (requires a bit of acrobatDell Axim51v Won't power on? - 1.gif here) I carefully pressed upward against the apparent switch activator with the tip of a letter opener, while holding the Axim so I could see the screen, and pressed the power button. It instantly came on. I release the letter opener, and it instantly went black again.

I think this is the correct solution.

To everyone that's having problems with the back plate battery cover warning messages or problems not booting up on your Dell PDA, I think I've found the answer, I have 2 Dell's PDA's, 1 a X51v & the other a X50v, I was having problems with both of them (1 had battery cover warning messages & the other had a screen freezing) so I stripped the 2 of them down when I had both rear shells together I noticed that the small piece of sponge that Dell fit to the latching mechanism one was on the far right of the latching plate on one & the other was in the middle of the plate, I looked to see which shell belong to which PDA & the one I was having problem with battery cover warning messages the sponge far right, so I swapped the back shells around & booted it up BINGO!!!!! problem solved, I'm fairly sure the SPONGE SHOULD BE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LATCH PLATE, if I'm right Dell engineers & executives should be shoot, such a simple fix why didn't they let owners know about this. This has got to be easier than trying to bridge the switch contacts or rip the switch off the board, give it a go guys, Please let me know if it works on your PDA. I will upload some photo should any of you guys need.

I purchased a new battery for my Dell Latitude 810 and it still won't hold a charge. The battery indicator light is green for a brief period, turns amber and then shuts off.


If you installed a new battery in your Dell computer and still can't get it to charge, there is a strong possibility that there is something wrong with the charging system

Dell inspiron M5030 won't charge, green light is


This is a common problem. It may be that the charger is dammaged. these Dell chargers have a micro thin communication cable in them that tell the charger to charge the battery. this micro thin cable can often break. Its use it to prevent the laptop battery from over charging, but if it breaks or becomed broken inside tha charger cable, then the laptop simply won't get the charge signal and the battery won't charge. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the charger with another Dell charger compatible with your laptop

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My battery indicator won't turn green when it is fully charged.what is this issue?


It is possible one of the battery cells has degraded enough the battery is not showing a full charge, or there is an issue with the green light, but this is minor provided everything is working.

How long should i charge my jump box


I'm not familiar with this model, but other boxes I've used have all had some kind of power level indicator to show their charge level. I'm sure yours does too. Charge it at least until the indicator shows it's full. You can leave the unit charging for as long as you want, actually. The charging circuitry drops to a low trickle when the unit is fully charged, and won't damage anything by overcharging. (We have one where I work. As soon as we're done jumping something it goes back on charge, and it's over three years old now.)
