That is definitely a defective unit. Assuming you have a warranty, please return it and exchange for a new one.
Good luck!

    NOTICE: When you perform a hard reset, you lose all the data stored in your
    device memory, and any programs that you installed on your device.

    Perform a hard reset if:
    • You want to delete all the data stored in your device memory.
    • You forget your password and need to clear it.
    • Your device is experiencing severe operational problems.

    NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you perform a hard reset. See ActiveSync Help on your computer for more information.

    To perform a hard reset:
    1 Press and hold the power button.
    2 Using the reset stylus, hold the reset button for about 2 seconds.
    3 Follow the instructions on the screen.

    • When the main battery charge is low, the power button light flashes amber.

  • Priya darshan Aug 14, 2008

    When the battery is being charged, the power button light is solid amber.
    • When the device relays a notification, the power button light rapidly flashes green

  • Priya darshan Aug 14, 2008

    If you need anymore help please let me know and please don't forget to accept the solution as fixya.

This can be a bad battery since you charge it overnight , because overcharging a unit like this may cause damage to the battery itself, so if you try to change the battery that will be better...

Hope that helps...........

    That can mean about a problem with the battery , that your phone cannot get enough power from the battery, if you want try to plug the phone to a power outlet and try to turn it on if it will be ok..

Unplug the unit from the cahrger, to remove the battery then put it back in, and then try to turn it on. this is just a work around.

    i agree with marked, if in case that you see the battery a little swollen, you may need to get it replaced before it causes more damage to the unit.

SOURCE: 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.

Cannot charge Dell Axim x50!!! I am using a USB data/power cable. I have it plugged into my 2.0 usb slot on the computer and its flashing green and orange, but it wont really charge. I have left it here...


if the bandwith on your computer is insufficient it will not recognize the connection. Try using a different USB port and you may find it works.

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.
