Hi.

I am afraid that the battery latch switch is broken. You should have seen it coming, given the first symptoms.

If battery latch circuit is open from start, the unit will not power up at all, that is a common problem on Dell Axim.

A proper repair is done at Dell, replacing the battery latc, or at any local computer repair shop.

Before contacting Dell you can try the home fixes described on links below, if that does not work, then the unit must be repaired.

Here the links.

The most common cause of this problem is a bad battery. The best route to go is to take it into any radio shack store where they will test the battery for free. J.

Why do I get a battery latch open warning Axim x51v


There is a sensor on the latch that detects when it has opened. Over time, the sensor wears down. You can put a dab of glue on it (so that the button presses down even further) or fold a tiny piece of paper onto it. You can find the sensor right above where the latch is, after you've opened the back cover.

Axim 50/51 wont pass blue startup screen


There could be two possible problems with this device.

If you have to remove the unit to shutdown, then the ROM chip holding the information for the bootup of the unit may need to be replaced.

The other possible problem is that the battery consumption of the unit may be greater than what the battery is rated at.

Either way, it will have to go in for repair.

I have a dell axim x51v, I does not stay operational


seems to be some problem with the battery itself. Try charging it fully and then check. Does the battery dip when the phone turns off?

Dell Axim x51v that will not power on.


Assuming the battery is not dead, try taking the battery out for a few seconds to be sure the PDA is turned all the way off. Put the battery back in and close the back. Use the stylus to hold the reset button in (on the back) while you press and hold the power button. If the battery is dead do this while it is connected to the charger. It should diplay a message telling you to press the mail button (to the left of the cursor control button) to the reset to factory defaults. Caution this will erase everything in the built in memory including any programs you installed after you recieved it.

Hope this helps

paper wedged in the sensor sometimes work. More extreme is 'surgically' removing the switch and connecting it up.... see aximsite.com for a guide.... otherwise take it to a technician.

I have the same problem. Its from an over sensitive switch. You arent actually opening the battery case you are pressing against it. This triggers the switch and makes it think you are taking the battery latch off. I haven't actually tried it but you could open up the Axim and cut the cable going to that sensor/switch?

Dell Axim x50v - Battery Latch Problem


Hi Guys

Here are some photo's of the before & after showing where the sponge will be when your Dell PDA is faulty (not booting up or battery latch warning messages & where it needs to be repositioned to, the photo's should be self explanatory, I used some double sided tape to refix the sponge but super glue might work but don't blame me if it runs into the latch mechanize & gluing it up for ever, this does really work & better than messing about with the PCB. I have posted more details on this forum just search for the title ""Why do I get a battery latch open warning Axim x51v"

I have the same problem. I've found that the Innopocket magnum case will hold the cover in place and pretty much stop it doing this. Unfortunately, the case won't fit if you have an extended battery. I've tried taping down the cover with some success, but the hard case worked better.
