On mine, the outside metal shield to the connector unsoldered. If you have expertise tin soldering on boards you could fix it using a very thin soldering iron. It is recommendable to use one with temperature adjustment, so that you do not overheat/burn the board and plastic part of the connector. That's the way I fixed mine

My Mio 168 just won't charge


The socket on the bottom of these is a common failure point. It wobbles about until the solder cracks then the device won't charge. If you're confident with a soldering iron you might be able to fix it yourself. Remove the SD card and fold the GPS antenna down. Remove the four case screws and carefully separate the back by gently prying it along the join. Watch out for the cable to the GPS antenna. Now you should be able to see the 22-pin socket. The pins are tiny. Very carefully re-solder them, and the ends of the connector where they attach to the PCB. The YouTube video seems to illustrate it pretty well.

Alternatively, there's this option which is altogether more drastic:

Does not recognize my connection for active sync


Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50 and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to a computer using a sync cable.
  1. p 1 The Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PCmag-glass_10x10.gif Companion CD.
  2. Step 2 The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
  3. Step 3 Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
  4. Step 4 Check the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync connection is successful.”
  5. Step 5 Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
  6. Step 6 Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.

Palm zire 71 replaced battery camera and charging port not wrking


Dis you see if either the brown plastic locking part of the connector is broken or missing?

Do you know if the soldering joints and terminals of such connector are in good shape?

I am asking because it may be only that the flat ribbon cable is nort placed properly, or such flat ribbon cable is damaged.

Also, the connector at the mainboard can be damaged.

Depending of what is damaged, it will be the cost to repair it.

I do recoomend you to disassembly very carefully your pda again, and check such areas and parts.

If you find something that is broken, you can get the needed parts from a broken PDA in Ebay or similar sites.

Calendar sync


Hi,

Sounds like either you Service book [CICAL] maybe curropt; delete the service book and wireless sync the device to push new service book.

If that doesn't work; check if your colleagues have the same issue too, it may be a greater issue with the BES. i.e - One way Calender Sync issue.

Ask your IT guy to go through the BES logs to search for errors under your PIN for the day you had made entries on Calender.

Do few Tests - one from the Device and sync and the other on your desktop mail and sync.

I hope this helps, let me know how it goes,

Thanks.

N u please help with connection problem


Are they bent or broken off? If they are only bent you could carefully straighten them. If they have broken you would have to replace the connector which I believe is a 22 pin connector.

Look at this link for more technical information on replacement of this connector:

Ipaq will not Charge


Those batteries only last about 2 years. It's probably time for a replacement.
