Question about Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC

No response to sylus taps

I just got my pda back from having the backup battery replaced. When I turned it on, there was no response to tapping with the stylus. I performed a soft reset - no luck. I performed a hard reset, and it wouldn't even turn on. I charged it all night. The green light was on, but it wouldn't turn on. I performed another hard reset. Now it turns on, but won't respond to a stylus tap.

Hi Try This Squeezing the Axim gently in normal holding position Placing the Axim in the sync cradle (I have no clue why this works) Doing a soft reset Shutting it off and leaving it alone. Then Re-Starting it. The Axim, despite its size and weight, is not as rigid as it should be. If the case flexes far (or often?) enough, you'll get the "not responding to taps" issue. If you have the problem now,call Support, and get an exchange. Don't worry about getting a refurb. I use lots of refurb equipment, and they are no more or less likely to fail than new equipment. Note that if you continue to flex the refurb's case like your original (I carried mine around in my pants pocket), it will eventually develop the same problem.

All of a sudden my touchscreen is unresponsive. I have done a soft reset, but tapping on the screen gets no response at all. What is my next step?

Tap the little house, then tap Prefs. When in Prefs tap Digitizer or scroll until you get there, or get to Digitzer any way you can. Open digitizer and it will instruct you how to realign your screen. Follow their instructions and you should be back in business. If this doesn't work then you may need to get your PDA repaired. This worked for me in less than a couple of minutes. Good luck

My tungsten E2 will not go out of the "tap center of the target" mode. Can this be fixed ? Thanks for the help.

Hello, cleme_z. I would be happy to help! Unfortunately, I too have had this issue with a pda of mine (not the same brand as yours), and the reason why my pda did this (and probably why your tungsten is doing this) is because your touch screen is broken. You screen cannot recognize nor truly feel touches, so your pda is stuck in "tap center of target mode," waiting for a response from your touch screen. The best thing to do is to contact the manufacture and tell theme about this issue. They might even allow you to send them your pda and replace it for free if they discover that you might have a slightly defective screen. I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please ask!

Touchflo of HTC Touch 3G won't launch

Hi. TouchFlo is the special today plugin for the HTC devices, and as you realized, you can still use all functions of your PDA without. I think there is an error in the installation of TouchFlo (There can be a bunch of reasons, we have to know everything you did with your PDA in order to guess them), but there is a safe solution for that problem, you can backup all your personal data and software to your PC, then you can hard reset your PDA to its factory default settings. That way both your phone and the TouchFlo will work. In order to hard reset your PDA (after the backup of your personal data), you can follow the steps in this link: (http://www.hardreset.eu/htc_touch_diamond_hard_reset_soft_reset_en.html). Hope this helps.

I cant get past the align screen on my o2

When you don't charge your PDA's battery for a while, and let both normal and backup batteries to finish completely, all your data in your PDA is lost, and it will go back to factory default state. As the operating system is stored in the ROM of your PDA, it will be reinstalled when you charge it again, and becuase there's no data left from the past state, you have to do all the settings again from the start, beginning with the screen alignment (You can tap carefully on the plus sign each time it moves). If you had a backup syncronized with your PC, you can then recover your data to your PDA.

Slow respond

The best solution to these problems is hard resetting your device. A hard reset will bring your PDA to it's factory default state, so your PDA will be as fast as it was when it was brand new. But this process will erase all your stored data (Such as adress book, messaged, appointments, tasks, pictures, ...) so you should consider having a backup of your PDA to your PC with a backup software before you hard reset your device. So later when you hard reset, you can recover the personal data with this backup file and continue using your PDA faster.
To hard reset your PDA, you must press the on/off button and reset button at the same time (reset button is a small button that needs to be pressed with your pen, and usually it is located in the bottom of the PDA). And later, wait a couple of minutes and the windows will be reinstalled and load up with the starting page of the screen alignment. After you completed all the settings, you can recover your data from your backup file (from PC).

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.

Wi-fi PDA connectivity problem

First, restart your pda by using your stylus and pressing the pin-hole sized button on the back of the PDA. There are sometimes a couple of different reasons why the pda wont recognize the network. Main Reason: Make sure you are at the home screen... Tap the wifi icon on the lower right corner of the pda. T hen make sure that the WLAN power is turned ON. Press the setting button. If you see your network in the list, tap on it. It should bring up a network configuration window. Make sure it says it connect to "The Internet". Then tap on the "Network Key" tab at the bottom of window. If you have no security settings on your belkin router, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is set to "Disabled". Then press "OK". That should Be it!!!! Let me know if this way doesnt work, or if something doesnt make sence!
