Dell Axim X5 PDA - will not power on. Power light will go from orange to green when charging. Tried both hard and soft resets. Nothin works. Could it be because there's no memory card installed? I'm PDA illiterate, please have mercy. :)

Well a memory card has nothing to do with it, maybe your battery isnt working, or you just need to consult dell

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.

Non recognition of password


That would be very difficult.

In my experiences of trying to get all the data out of a pda when its in a locked state, when trying to access it from the pc the pda decided to shut it self down.

In the end I had to perform a hardreset to get it to work again.

In theory, if you could somehow tap into the ram and copy all its contents into your pc. But this ram might be protected or encypted.

Its very difficult, since your data is stored in RAM witch will empty itself when the power is cut. (battery removed or other shortcircuit)

If you know the password you are typeing is correct and it still wont login, then there is most likely a software problem witch would require a hard reset.

Good Eevening :


You could get original disk from ebay at times but all you need is the Activesync that can be downloaded from Microsoft. Get Active sync 4.2. The newer ones do NOT work with the X5.

Good luck with the wireless card. The Axim does not play well with many of them. (sometimes works but mostly not) Try drivers from d Link and be sure to remove the old drivers first.

X50v hardware problem I think


Take out battery, put cover back on. Plug to cradle and turn on. Then do soft reset while on the cradle working. After, turn off , remove from cradle and install battery. Turn on with battery only.

Dell Axim X5 Screen Back Light Trouble


Holding down the record button on these units turns the backlight on and off, since this is hardware controlled you should try this first. If you've performed a hard reset and held down record then this is most likely a physical fault, check with Dell to find out your warranty status and find out about the availability of replacement parts.
