Question about Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC
My Axim 30 was working well and I have no problem or signs of something is going wrong. One day, while I was using it, it suddenly stopped working. It did not respond to the soft reset so I tried the hard reset. Temporarily it showed something that let me push one or the other botton to erase everything. Now it will not even turn on or respond to hard reset. I change battery thinking my old one was not good. The new one did not made it respond either. What else can be done other than throwing it away?
Hello edil, This sounds like a corrupted ROM file. The ROM stores all your operating system and pda's firmware alltogheter. If it becomes severely corrupt the pda doesn't boot properly or doesn't work at all. This appears like a fixable problem however you will need to have it fixed in a service center, because they need to acces your device's bootloader or rewrite it using some special hardware, then they will rewrite the memory with a fresh rom file. This will have you device up and working. However please avoid to send it to dell as this will get expensive. Most pda services are able to do this and the generic ones will do it cheaper. Try to look for a cheaper, generic "pda service" center. Hope it helps.
