Dell Axim X50v won't turn on after 6 months of no use

Hi there

I haven't used my X50v for about 6 months and it won't turn on. I've been charging it for about 30 minutes now - the charge light is orange, but when I try to turn it on, nothing happens. I've tried a soft reset and that doesn't do anything either

Please help

Thanks!

    Same problem and can't fix it.

    Same. No solution. Throw it away...

    Mine always worked fine until I left it on and it went to sleep. Now it will not turn on with fully charged battery or AC. When connected to computer via ActiveSync, will not accept input from touchscreen. When reset button is pushed, will not accept input from buttons to clear memory or cancel operations. It appears that all input methods died!

    no dice

    x50v was working for 2 weeks

    3 fully charged batteries - so I highly doubt that I have 3 dead batteries (as one of these is even brand new)

    I have the orange charging light come on and even the green fully charged light comes on...but thats it

    tried to do both a soft and hard reset - with no results

    Does anyone have any advice???

Don't forget to backup before performing a hard reset. Also, don't forget to check the lock button on the left side. Shamefully, that was my problem! I didn't even know the lock button was there, let alone that my purse demon locked it.

Later post Ken Akiyama had the correct solution. The hard reset did the trick.
But, you will loose your data and programs. Pays to backup.

Kindle keyboard won't turn on


Put it on charge for 30 minutes or so - the orange CHARGE light should light up.

Slide and HOLD the power slide to the right/ON position for a slow count of 30.
Ignore everything, just keep it held to the right for the complete count.

Now drink a cup of tea whilst it resets.

Now slide the power switch on again as normal - it should go to the Kindle Tree logo and then the boot bar come up and then everything will repopulate.
Let it alone for a few minutes as at remembers all your books and then all should be fine.

NOTE: Every 6 months the Kindle eReaders INDEX their content (it logs every single word in every single book) yes this eats the battery.
It's why they suggest never abandoning your Kindle for long periods of time.

You may also want to try a random search on the HOME page for "kjsdjhds" or something - if it says "5 books unindexed" use the down button to highlight those books and DELETE them. They are corrupted and can be downloaded again for free whenever conveninet to you.

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hi, I've had my Acer aspire laptop for a few years now, but I haven't used it for over a year (Because I got a desktop). So when I've come to turn it on today, It won't work. The screen...


Start with pulling the battery and power, then hold the power button in for about 30-40 seconds. Then plug the power back in (still no battery). Try to power up the computer. If it boots, shut it down and put the battery in and try again. If it boots the issue was cleared. If it boots with the power cord but not with the battery added, you have a battery issue.

Hope this helps

Hi Zoetic,

Looks like a charging issue, tryh the following:

1. Connect the Reader to the computer
2. Hit the Reset at the bottom for 3 seconds
3. Make sure a redlight comes on at the top of the unit
4. Leave the reader charging for about 15 minutes or half an hour
5. Disconnect the reader and check if its functional now
6. If not try the reset again

Ryobi charger model # 140295003 has a red and yellow light. When charging red light is on what does the yellow light mean? Also how long should the battery be left in the charger?


Completely wrong. Quoting from the user's manual:

"The charge indicator light (LED), located on the charg- ing stand, will light up red and glow when the char- ger is properly connected to power supply. This light indicates the charger is operating properly. It will remain on until battery pack is removed from charging stand or charger is disconnected from power supply.

After normal usage, 3 hours or less of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

If both red and orange LED indicators glow, the battery pack is deeply or completely discharged, and 6 hours or longer of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

Note: If charger does not charge battery pack or orange LED continues to glow after more than 30 minutes of charging, return battery pack and charging assembly to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for electrical check."

So to summarize: red = charging. orange (yellow) = fully discharged battery. orange after 30 minutes - bad battery or bad charger.

I lost my manual to my duracell instant jumpstart . Just wanna know to properly recharge my unit.


I'm having the same problem where it won't take a charged. If you left it with a dead battery for say 6 months, it probably ruined the battery. You should have a charger for house current and car voltage charger. I guess your dead in the battery like me. I'm taking it to Battery Plus to check it out. It only had a 1 year limited warranty. Good Luck.
