Question about Dell Axim X50v Pocket PC

1 Answer

Power button flashing

Why is my power button flashing on my axim x30?

Flashes back and forth from amber to green while charging and never stops at steady green when fully charged. Full charge drops down to about 60-70% in an hour and at first dropped 1% every 15 sec's. Am on my third battery, so unlikely needs new battery.

    i have a similar problem, where when i plug the cable in, it jumps from 60%, to 100% fully charged, whilst flashing green/amber, then when it is unplugged, it drops in battery power by the minuite.., i have tried cleaning up the connections, with little success. i have opened up the PDA and it does look like there may be some dry-joints on the power connection socket attached to the main PCB, so i am going to try and re-work it, i'll let u know if successful....

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.

Power light is blinking green and amber


my power light flashes green/ amber as soon as it is plugged in, with a dead battery. It seems to go to steady amber if the plug is tapped, but goes back to flashing. It will not hold a charge on a new battery.

No wifi, how do i get on internet


This model of the Axim X30 does not have built in wi-fi capability. You need to purchase a 802.11 b/g Wireless SDIO card.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT INSERT SDIO CARD INTO AXIM X30 BEFORE INSTALLING DRIVERS.

1. Connect the Axim X30 to your computer.
2. Establish a connection between the two devices using Active-Sync.
3. Insert CR-ROM which ships with the SDIO card in your computer.
4. Follow instructions for installing Driver an Utility.
5. Install SDIO card into the SD slot on the Axim X30.

When charging my axim X30 on the cradle, the on-off light is blinking from green light to amber consistantly... when I remove the device from cradle the device does not turn on at all.. I have replaced the...


It sounds to me that your "original" battery, the one that causes the blinking when charging is completly drained dead, causing it to show an error by blinking the light.
I have one of these PDA's and have never had that problem, I also have a larger battery as well, and it works great. I suggest recycling the other battery, and possibly purchasing another larger one for back up,
Good luck!
