Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
I have a Dell Axim X5. I don't remember when I bought it, but it was when Dell first came out with them. My issue is that when I touch the screen with the stylus, many times nothing happens. Other times it does ok, but then after about 30 secs of using it, the screen acts up again. I have tried a soft reset and even a hard reset. After both the screen is fine for a few minutes, but then starts acting up again. I have realigned the screen. It helped for a bit, but not long. I have not dropped it and I used to use a screen protector. I took it off when it was acting up. I thought it might be the protector, but it continued to act up.
Mine had a similar problem years ago. It got worse as time went on. I found the digitizer repair cleared the problem. It involves opening the PDA and placing a piece of celephane tape over the ribbon cable to the screen. A small hole is burned in the cable. Look that up and give it a try. what have you got to lose.

I have seen this before. It may or may not be the same problem but sometimes a crack can form in the digitizer (touch screen part of the display). The only way to fix it is to replace it. You can find them on-line or on ebay.
