IS THERE A WAY TO FIX AN LCD DISPLAY ON A DELL AXIM? I HAVE THREE UNITS AND ALL THREE DISPLAYS ARE NO GOOD. TWO OF THEM HAVE A WHITE BACKGROUND AND VERTICAL MULTI-COLORED LINES. THE THIRD UNIT IS VERY DIM AND SLOW TO RESPOND TO THE STYLUS. IT IS ALSO LIKE A PHOTO NEGATIVE IN TERMS OF ITS COLOR PATTERN. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THESE CAN BE REPAIRED OR IF I NEED TO ORDER NEW LCD DISPLAYS

Re: DELL AXIM X30 LCD DISPLAY
This is not an uncommon problem, but I guess you already know that considering you have 3 of them around.
I heard that loosening the screws on the case a little bit can somewhat help. Although a pocket PC, the Axims dont responde well to being carried in a pocket, or to being carried around at all.
You should get a hard case for carrying your PDA with you, if you do manage fixing any of them.
If you have a valid warranty use it, if not then it could be a 200 $ repair. You could also try to scavenge eBay for a dead Axim with a working display, and try replacing the screen and any other Hardware components that died on you, such as the digitizer.

Hi, The problem with pocket PC is that you can't do something to test and find if the problem comes from the display or the graphic processor. If the device is not too old, you can try to repair it. In case that the device is more than 10 years, buy a new one. Sorry.
The white screen you are getting is it just right after turning on the computer? If yes it means that you were not able to see the Dell logo correct?
Try connecting an external monitor thru VGA. While monitor and laptop is on with white screen please do this. Hold down Fn key then press F8 at the same time. This will toggle the display from the laptop to external monitor. If laptop displays to external monitor means that laptop LCD needs to be replaced.
If you do not have an external monitor try this. While laptop is OFF. Do this. Hold down the D key then press power button at the same time. Check if the laptop will display colors the whole screen. If you still see white screen then LCD needs replacement.
LCD mean LCD panel or the whole screen together with LCD cable and Inverter.
Downloaded programs can be installed onto the Dell Axim X30 using Microsoft ActiveSync. Microsoft ActiveSync can be installed onto your computer using the Dell Companion CD which came with your Axim X30.
Once Microsoft ActiveSync is set up on your computer, if the program you downloaded came in an installer file, then double-clicking on the file will start the installation wizard and the software will be automatically transferred to the Axim.
If the program you downloaded did not come as an installer file, then double-clicking it will bring up an error message. In that case, use ActiveSync Explore to copy the program file to the Program Files folder on your Axim.
check on ebay for a touchscreen (or a broken x3 or x30) not hard to fix. this model is great for repair, the lcd and touchscreen have seperate ribbons. a small "torx" driver can be bought at home depot for about $6
