20 Most Recent Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC Questions & Answers


XP is no longer maintained by MS or computer manufacturers! buying old pc's, older than Windows 7, will not even work with the internet anylonger. you have to get a newer machine because not only software but hardware is not compatible. ask a pc smart retailer(seller) or repair which pc and OS system you can get on the cheap

I would fit a new battery as it is more than 5 years old.

the only way to install windows mobile on your axim x51v is to get ahold of a ROM specifically for that model. the operating system is still only in beta testing so even if you do find the ROM there will be no support and it could be buggy. If you can find a ROM you just have to put it on a 1 or 2 gig SD card. it cannot be an SDHC card. then you press the power button, reset button on the back and the wireless button on the side all at the same time. this should start the ROM loader. just select the ROM on the card. it will then proceed to install it. you want to have the PDA plugged into AC power for this.
note that this process can be risky and if something does go wrong your PDA may be ruined and your on your own.

There is a sensor on the latch that detects when it has opened. Over time, the sensor wears down. You can put a dab of glue on it (so that the button presses down even further) or fold a tiny piece of paper onto it. You can find the sensor right above where the latch is, after you've opened the back cover.

You may have to do a hard reset. You hold one finger at the power and the other hand hold your stylus and his reset. This technique is applied to most PDA.

To everyone that's having problems with not booting up or the back plate battery cover warning messages on your Dell PDA, I think I've found the answer, I have 2 Dell's PDA's, 1 a X51v & the other a X50v, I was having problems with both of them (1 had battery cover warning messages & the other had a screen freezing) so I stripped the 2 of them down when I had both rear shells together I noticed that the small piece of sponge that Dell fit to the latching mechanism one was on the far right of the latching plate on one & the other was in the middle of the plate, I looked to see which shell belong to which PDA & the one I was having problem with battery cover warning messages the sponge far right, so I swapped the back shells around & booted it up BINGO!!!!! problem solved, I'm fairly sure the SPONGE SHOULD BE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LATCH PLATE, if I'm right Dell engineers & executives should be shoot, such a simple fix why didn't they let owners know about this. This has got to be easier than trying to bridge the switch contacts or rip the switch off the board, give it a go guys, Please let me know if it works on your PDA. I will upload some photo should any of you guys need.

Dell PDA Battery Cover Warning Messages & Won't Power on


This is my 1st posting on this forum although I've done a lot of reading regarding the battery cover I think this is the correct solution.

The problem may be that the switch that recognizes when the battery door is on is either not engaging completely, or not working. With the battery door off if you look very closely inside the LEFT pocket that latches the cover (to the left of the sliding latch button) you will see there is a tiny rectangular raised spot in the bottom of that pocket, at its right end. You will not see that in the right pocket. The bottom of the left pocket will move up and down slightly, as does that raised bump upon it. I believe the actual battery cover switch is UNDER that left pocket. To prove it, I tried to turn on my X51 with the cover removed, and it won't come on. Then (requires a bit of acrobat1.gif here) I carefully pressed upward against the apparent switch activator with the tip of a letter opener, while holding the Axim so I could see the screen, and pressed the power button. It instantly came on. I release the letter opener, and it instantly went black again.

paper wedged in the sensor sometimes work. More extreme is 'surgically' removing the switch and connecting it up.... see aximsite.com for a guide.... otherwise take it to a technician.

I had this problem as well. I would get sound from headphones but unplugging them I had no sound from the builtin speaker.

When you plug in your headphones it moves a thin piece of metal in the jack which interrupts a connection (this is a good thing) so it can know when to disable the internal speaker. When you unplug your headphones the piece of metal moves back and it enables the internal speaker again.

I was able to fix this by taking apart my x51v and bending the piece of metal a little while the headphones are plugged in so that it will contact better when the headphones are unplugged,

To take your axim apart there are 4 screws on the back underneath the rubber grips that you need to take out. Then you can just slide a finger nail up and down each side to remove the front and back of the casing. The back you will need to swing out from the bottom since it hooks over the headphone jack. I unplugged the small wire that connects the front half of the case to the guts using a tiny flat screwdriver.

Inside on the back, there is a black plastic plate that is held on by 4 more screws. Take that off.

Now you can see the headphone jack. I plugged in my headphones and used a small flat screwdriver to push against the headphone jack on the bottom piece of metal on the right side with the axim face down. You can observe the piece I mean by looking at the side of the headphone jack when you plug and unplug headphones. It moves perhaps 1/32 of an inch.

Your goal is to bend the piece of metal closer to where it is when no headphones are plugged in. The only way to bend it properly is to do it when the headphones are in.

Sorry if this isn't clear enough. I'm not sure if this is a permanent fix or not but it's worked for me.

There is only one way that I know of from DELL and is performing a "Hard Reset". You will loose all your loaded programs and data loaded in Flash memory in the process:
1. With the Axim turned ON, press the Reset button until it clicks and hold it, then
2. Press the Power button, then
3. Release the Reset button, then
4. Release the Power button.
When you see the prompt on the screen, press the "Contacts" button to reset the Axim to factory defaults. You can also choose to press the "Mail" button if you need to cancel the reset process. :)
