It sounds like you only broke the outer layer, digitizer, which takes the stylus inputs. If the screen still shows properly, then your LCD screen is not broken.

I don't know about replacing the LCD screen, but to replace the digitizer, ebay the search words (axim, x5, digitizer) and find a $15 or so replacement.

Then follow these steps: http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GHT&Category_Code=_axim_takeapart

Any questions let me know. grandgregojunk [at] yahoo . com

Also, if your align screen should ever have difficulty responding in the future with the screen not cracked, check here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t540878-dell_axim

Best wishes.

I-mate prob.


First you should make a reset by pushing the button at the base of the phone close to the mouth piece.Then get some sort of stylus maybe from another phone and go to the phone settings and navigate through to the phone display option, where you have the option of realligning your screen.Follow the instructions there and then go and get another stylus for your phone.Your thumb sweat is not touchscreen friendly!

When i do hard reset hx2490b screen calibration does not appear


Try using your finger to calibrate the screen at first. (If you have difficult to navigate to the alignment screen use the stylus & keyboard to feel out your way) when calibrated to an accepable degree use the stylus to calibrate the sreen, if the target doesn't respond to stylus at any specific piont use your finger. Continue this process till u get it aligned as best as possible. I suspect this problem is caused by specific points on the screen going bad.

Touch screen not responding correctly


The Axim touch screen is extremely sensitive to the placement of the protecting plastic sheet. Check that the the plastic sheet is oriented correctly - the small bended corners must bend downwards. If that wasn't the problem then remove the protection sheet and pick gently directly on the screen with the stylus to see if you get a response. Most often this is due to a problem with the screen protecting plastic sheet.

Stylus not working when touching screen


I encountered this problem today, and I have figured out a solution!

Switch the Wireless switch on the bottom of the Pocket PC to the Off position, then back on.

Voila, your touch screen should respond now.

Screen is not responding


Hold the red and green soft buttons down while hitting the master reset button on the bottom with the stylus. All information in the phone will be lost but ur phone will work again.

Touch screen


Haha I love the Centro. You need to perform a system reset to the phone the directions are in your manual. Basically, the touch screen is screwed and by reseting it and following the prompts that should resolve your issue. You don't lose any information either so you have nothing to lose.
