Axim directional pad

My directional pad seems a bit soft when I push up or to the right. If I push down or to the left I can feel a click. Is anyone else having this problem? I tried playing a game and it was difficult to use the pad...

Re: Axim directional pad

"My 3 largest gripes with the Axim are as follows: 1. Lame feeling directional pad (should be 5-way..i.e. the Palm Tungsten) 2. Even cheaper-feeling rocker/jog-dial thingy. 3. Disappointing video playback, specifically in Pocket TV." Points one and two well, taken, but point #3...... You'd be hard pressed to find any PPC that performs any better. This is a limitation of PocketTV, not the Axim.

Re: Axim directional pad

Fully agree. My 3 largest gripes with the Axim are as follows: 1. Lame feeling directional pad (should be 5-way..i.e. the Palm Tungsten) 2. Even cheaper-feeling rocker/jog-dial thingy. 3. Disappointing video playback, specifically in Pocket TV.

Axim x30 won't come up


The Dell Axim X30 be soft reset by pressing the "Reset" button (from the stylus tip) on the rear of the unit, below the battery.


If the Dell logo in blue background lights up and then goes off again, its probably the brightness setting of your unit. Once the device has started up, just press and hold the jog wheel (the volume wheel above the headphone jack on the left side of the PDA) and press the UP directional key in the front bottom of the PDA. Every press of the up key should brighten up the screen a bit.

If the above solution does not work, you probably might need to hard reset your device.
WARNING: A "hard" reset wipes the RAM and returns the Pocket PC to its factory defaults. You might (mostly) lose all your data if you perform a hard reset. Do not hard-reset your device without having a backup of your data.


The procedures for hard resetting your ppc is given in a very detailed steps in the following page:

Did it work


danld,
not sure what happened to my email to you. I will send it again. The solution to my problem was to use this web site http://www.pdasmart.com/aximpartscenterx3.htm. I bought the replacement assemble for the 3X axim. It might seem a bit pricey but it solved my problem. I have been using my axim ever since with no problems. They have a fast turnaround time too. I believe I got it back with a week or so. They also have good prices on replacement batteries. I have purchased two of them and they are working very well. Hope this helps you and anyone else that had screen problems. You can't get this model of axim anymore and I think it was worth the repairs I put into mine.

Delete voice messages


Find the file on your Axim, use the sylus and hold it down on the file name, a little red circle of dots will form around the file and bring up a menu for that file (kinda like right clicking on a file on your desktop PC), you can then delete it from there.

Backlight not working


Did you try to set the Backlight on in the control panel? (settings>system>brightness) The brightness is often automatically set to 0. If you did this already and it still doesn't work, probably try an email.

Restoring Backup to New Axim


The backup utility included on your Dell Handheld will backup your data to a storage card. You can restore on your replacement handheld from that storage card. From your Host PC, you can go to Tools | Backup/Restore and do a backup to the Host PC, and you can then restore after syncing the replacement handheld for the first time.

Infrared Beaming Problem


My Axim is behaving the same way. I find that if I try to transfer something from my Palm IIIc to my Axim via infrared, it rarely sends the data immediately, and it often times out. I have found that I can often get it to work if I request the transfer on the Palm and then "stimulate" the Axim via tapping a menu selection or by momentarily blocking the view between the devices.

Problems with SD Slot on Axim


I once used Mazingo on another pocket pc. I had it set to use the CF card in it. It did the same thing it's doing on yours now. It caused word to take a long time to open and it loaded the pages in it really slow. I stopped using it for that reason. I think it may just me the Mazingo program.
