Question about Dell Axim X50 Pocket PC

Dell Axim X50 won't boot

When I turn the device on it starts to go through the normal boot screen but when the bar almost reaches 100% it locks up and just sits there. Is there a way of re-imaging the entire phone or a way to get this back running?

    Dell Axim X50 locked-up (non responsive) on Home screen. I did a hard boot. The device shut down and then starts with the progress bar only going about 40% then stops. I've left it on in the cradle for hours, out of the cradle for hours charged it, rebooted it and still no change. I've been attempting to fix it with boots and watching it for days now.

    Same prob for me. After a week of non-use it boots to 80% after a soft or hard reset and will go no further. I let it sit on my desk all day and it never moved.

Well mine did the same and if you wait long enough it will boot maybe giv it at least 15 min. Then upgrade it to prevent it happening again.

A "soft" reset clears all open programs and "reboots" the Pocket PC. When the Pocket PC powers back up, you'll start with all active programs closed and the device ready to use. This procedure is intended to reset the Pocket PC if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down. This reset is also sometimes necessary after software is installed. A soft reset is the Pocket PC equivalent to restarting your Desktop or Laptop. The Dell Axim X50 and X50v can be soft reset by pressing the recessed button on the rear of the unit above the battery. A "hard" reset wipes the RAM and returns the Pocket PC to its factory specs. In effect, the Pocket PC will be just as it was when you purchased it. All data entered, preferences set or software installed (other than ROM updates) on the Pocket PC after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to be transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync. The Dell Axim X50 Series Pocket PCs can be hard reset by performing the following procedure: With the X50 turned on, press and hold the power button at the top of the unit. While holding the down power button, use the stylus tip to press the "Reset" button mentioned above. Allow the screen to fade to off. Release both buttons. The unit will power back on and display a menu to confirm the hard reset request. The Axim will be hard reset, just as it was when it left the factory hope this helps

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.

Dell latitude d505 wont start up. When I press the power button a flashing padlock shows up but the screen never turns on, then the flashing padlock stops, and thats the end.


The flashing padlock should have an "A" in it. That is the caps lock. The flashing caps lock indicates a problem with the memory slot. Try removing memory and replacing. If it continues and you have two modules, take both out and try one at a time. One of your memory modules or slots might have gone bad

Dell Axim X50 PDA won't turn on


Had the same problem. Did some research and fixed the problem by performing a "soft reset". Tap the reset indentation on the back once quickly. Do NOT hold it in or you will lose all saved data. Mine's working fine now.

Dell Axim 50 suddenly will not turn on.


Press the power button and the left side record button simultaniously for about 10 seconds. Usually this problem happens when the primary software image cannot be located or is corrupt. Also check to ensure your SD Card is in properly. If that doesn't do the trick upgrade.

Axim 50 will not turn on


I suggest making sure the lock switch on the upper left side of the PDA is not in the lock position. I had this problem and I think that I just bumped it into the lock position. This lock switch prevents any buttons from being a input to the PDA. Hope this helps, Duane.
