Question about Dell Axim X51 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Alarms will not work

I've had my Axim for several months but never tried to use the "alarm" feature until now. I know how to set the alarms, but when I set one, the time comes and goes but the alarm never sounds. I already double-checked that the date and time are set correctly and that the volume is turned up.

    I installed that program without difficulty but it won't work either. I can set the time for the alarm, but it never sounds.

  • squadcar Apr 01, 2008

    That alarm clock program would not work either (same problem as before) but I did find a tip at another website: I deliberately set the date incorrectly on the Axim, did a soft reboot, and then after it booted up, I set the date correctly. After that, the alarms worked fine. I can't explain why this works, but it worked for me.

I had a similar experience with my X51v. I solved it by looking to 3rd party software. The best one I've used to date is a small program that comes from Japan called GSAlarmClock. Definately give it a try. You won't be dissapointed. You can pick it up free from PocketPCFreeware

Can a new remote be programmed if alarm is set?


Hi Kim, When you ordered the new key the dealer should have asked for the chassis number? That gives them the codes to pre program. so that it should activate and deactivate the alarm, if that is the problem! ? Regards John

How do i set my alarm and when do i know it is on or off....keeps coming on and i dont know how to shut off the alarm...thank you


This clock radio features a dual alarm system, with two separate alarms that can be operated independently. The alarms can be set to wake two people at different times, or to have a main alarm and a backup. One alarm features your choice of radio stations as an alarm wake sound, while the second features a buzzer wake sound. You can set the radio alarm, the buzzer alarm, or both alarms.
Setting Radio Alarm
1. Press the "Alarm Set" Button. The display will flash and the Radio Alarm Indicator will appear. If you do not begin setting the time within ten seconds of pressing the it, the display will stop flashing andd you will need to press the "alarm Set Button again. 2. While the display flashes, press the "Tuning/Set" Buttons to set the wake time. Hold a button for a few seconds to advance the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, as shown by the PM Indicator. 3. After setting the radio alarm time, you will need to select the station to wake up to. First, press the "AM/FM" Button to select a radio frequency. Next, select a station using the "Radio Preset Buttons". Rotate the Volume Thumbwheel to set a wake sound volume level. 4. After setting the radio alarm wake time and sound, you will need to select your 7-5-2 setting. The 7-5-2 setting lets you set the alarm for a full week, weekdays only, or the weekend. Before setting the alarm, be sure that the correct date is set. 5. After you have set the radio alarm wake time, wake sound, and 7-5-2 setting, press the "Alarm Set" Button twice so that the display shows the standard, non-flashing display.
Setting Buzzer Alarm
1. Press the "Alarm Set" Button twice. The display will flash and the Buzzer Alarm Indicator will appear. 2. While the display flashes, press the "Tuning/Set" Buttons to set the wake time, as described above. 3. After setting the buzzer wake time, use the "Date/7-5-2" Button to select the buzzer. 4. After you have set the buzzer wake time and 7-5-2 setting, press the "Alarm Set" Button once so that the display shows the standard, non- flashing display.
Activating the Alarms
1. To activate the radio alarm, press the "Radio Alarm" Button so that the Radio Alarm Indicator appears on the display. As long as this indicator appears, the alarm will sound at the set time and days. 2. To activate the buzzer alarm, press the "Buzzer Alarm" Button so that the Buzzer Alarm Indicator appears on the display. As long as this indicator appears, the alarm will sound at the set time and days. 3. When the alarm sounds, press the " Off/Reset" Button to turn off the alarm while still maintaining the programmed 7-5-2 alarm settings. To turn off an alarm and cancel its 7-5-2 settings, press its "Alarm Button" so that its Alarm Indicator no longer appears on the display. 4. To activate the snooze feature, press the "Snooze/Night-Light" Bar when the alarm sounds. The alarm will shut off for approximately nine minutes before sounding again. The feature can be repeated several times during the one-hour snooze cycle. 5. If it is not turned off, the alarm will sound for an hour before stopping. As long as an Alarm Indicator appears on the display, the alarm will sound at the set time, according to the 7-5-2 settings.

I have an aquatech watch and don't know how to set it.


Thank you for contactng FixYa.
Setting the Time and Date
  • To set the time and date on your Aquatech watch, begin by pressing the "Mode" button three times to access the time setting screen. Use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the hour on your watch. Use the "Start/Stop" button to advance the numbers to reach the correct hour. When you've set the hour, use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the minutes, using the "Start/Stop" button to advance to the correct minute. Repeat the procedure to set the seconds, month, date and day of the week on your Aquatech watch.
  • Setting an Alarm
  • To set an alarm on your Aquatech watch, begin by pressing the "Mode" button two times to access the alarm setting screen. Use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the hours place, using the "Start/Stop" button to reach the correct hour. Repeat the same procedure to set the minutes for your alarm. When you have finished setting the alarm, activate it by simultaneously holding the "Lap/Reset" and "Start/Stop" buttons until the alarm icon appears. When the alarm sounds, silence it by pressing the "Lap/Reset" button.
  • Deactivating the Hourly Chime
  • Many Aquatech watch models feature an automatic hourly chime. This can be inappropriate and inconvenient in many situations. To deactivate the hourly chime on an Aquatech watch, simply press and hold the "Lap/Reset" and "Mode" buttons simultaneously. After you have correctly deactivated the hourly chime, the hourly chime indicator icon will disappear from the watch's main screen.

    Armitron All-Sport Watch Instructions By Brian Walker eHow Contributor 9 Found This Helpful The Armitron All-Sport is a unisex style of watch made by Armitron that features a digital readout and four buttons around the outer dial for adjusting various aspects of the watch. It can set alarms, keeps the time as well as the date, and has a built-in backlight. Accessing and adjusting these various settings is a fairly simple process.

    Setting Date, Time and Alarm
    • To enter the date and time setting mode, press and hold the "mode" button, located on the top-left of the watch. Continue holding this button until the display begins to flash. This first display is the alarm setting, should you choose to set an alarm to go off. If you'd like to set the alarm, use the "alarm" button on the bottom-right of the watch to advance the hours to the desired one. Then press the mode button again; this will cycle through the minutes and seconds of the alarm to allow you to set those as well. Once you have set the alarm, you can press the "date" button at the top-right of the watch to proceed to the regular time setting. These numbers, which will now be flashing, also are adjusted by pressing the alarm button to change them. Pressing the date button again will now cycle through the hours, minutes, seconds and the date. As you continue to press the date button, the All-Sport will continuously cycle through these options; don't worry if you forget to set one, you can simply press the date button a few times until you get back to the setting you need to change. Once the alarm, time and date have all been set, you can press the mode button one more time to exit to the normal watch mode that will display the date and time.
    Using Chime and Alarm
    • The Armitron All-Sport features both an alarm and an hourly chime. The alarm function will cause the watch to continuously beep at the selected time until you turn it off by pressing a button. The chime will cause the watch to beep once every hour. You can turn both these features on and off by pressing and holding the alarm button and while holding it pressing the date button. The first time you do this, the chime will turn on and a small house symbol will be displayed on the watch face. Performing this button-pressing sequence again will turn on the alarm, which in turn displays a small clock icon on the watch face. Each successive pressing of this button sequence will alternate between the chime and the alarm, turning them either on or off.
    Backlight
    • The All-Sport also features a built-in backlight to help you view the watch in dark conditions. This light can be activated by pressing the "light" button on the bottom-left of the watch. Pressing this button is the only way to activate the light, and doing so will only cause the watch to illuminate for a few seconds at a time.

    My Python 990 system is acting up.Installed several months ago. Now doors wont lock or unlock and alarm goes off every time the door is open even in the unlock pososition. The vehicle is a 2002 Escalade...


    Sounds like you have a bad remote, bad battery in the remote, or it needs to be reprogramed to the alarm. If the alarm has been set with the remote, it will need to be disarmed with the remote as well, unlocking the door with the key and getting in, will set off the viper. If you know where you valet switch for the alarm is(small black push button), just turn the key forward till everything on the dash lights up, push the valet switch for about one second and let go. The alarm should shut off in a couple seconds. This will allow you to drive the car until you get you remote checked out.

    Keyless entry alarm sounds off at a set time, How


    If you have children that play with the remote itself, it's very possible that they have pressed a certain code and set the alarm to do that. My 18 month old loves to play with my keys... which was fine until my tahoe started cranking every 3 hours. When I took it to a mechanic, they determined he had pressed a key code to make it auto crank. They reset it and I haven't had a problem since. Hope this helps!

    Can't set time on aqualite watch-field ranger


    I have an aqualite field ranger watch too. I lost the information but I found another notice for another watch and I was able to set the TIME as well as the alarm. I am not despairing as to one day set the date correctly! ;-)

    The instructions I found are for "LIFELONG Chrono Alarm Sport watch" from Hanig & Company. The watch this particular instructions comes from has a rectangle LCD display that only takes the center of the dial, and only 3 buttons for the functions.

    Aqualite has 4 buttons, but one of them is only for lighting the dial only, therefore if we use the 3 other buttons the same way they are described in this manual, it will work.

    Aqualite has 4 buttons:
    1) top right (we will call it S1 like this manual does)
    2) bottom right (this will be S2)
    3) bottom left (this will be S3)

    As I said the number 4) (top left) is only for light and we will forget it since it is not needed to set our watch.

    1. Press S3 (flashing in the display: SU, FR, SA)
    2. Press S1 to begin. Press S1 to stop.
    3. press S3 to return to the time display.

    In the time display.
    1. Press S3 (flashing in the display: SU, FR. SA)
    2. Press S2 to clear setting
    3. Press S1 to begin. Press S2 to stop.
    4. Press S1 once and S2 twice to reset.
    5. Press S3 to return to the time display.

    Setting the alarm and snooze:
    The time alarm features with a convenient snooze function which will sound 5 minutes after the first alarm in the time display.
    1. Press S3 twice for the alarm mode (hour will be flashing): advance by pressing S1
    2. Press S2 once (minute will be flashing)
    3. Press S3 to set alarm and return to time display
    3. Press S1 to deactivate alarm
    5. After 5 minutes, snooze alarm will ring. Pres S2 to deactivate.
