My power button was also blinking orange/green/orange/green. I pulled the battery and put it in the back of the cradel. It still blinked there too, orange/green. So I bought a battery. Does this sound like your issue?

The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or
purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most
manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by
displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If
your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is
probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the
light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of

Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to
indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will
rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level
until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your
laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red
or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it
indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.
Make sure the device is on before performing hard reset. To hard reset, press and hold the power button and press in on the reset button (reset hole) on the back of the unit for about 2-3 seconds. Release both buttons and you will see a confirmation screen asking you if you would like to clear all data in memory. To do so press the Contacts button. To cancel press the Mail button.
IT may be that the mainboard is faulty and would need to be replaced.
My Axim X30 would not turn on using battery power but would turn on when connected through charger adapter.
1. Connect AC adapter directly to the charger adapter and then to the Axim X30 and to the electrical outlet.
2. Charge battery until power button is solid green.
3. Press the power button to power on.
4. Remove cable from cable connector leaving the cable connector connected to the Axim X30. The Axim X30 will remain powered on.
5. Turn the Axim X30 off.
6. Turned the Axim X30 on using battery power.
7. Remove cable connector from Axim X30.
It sounds to me that your "original" battery, the one that causes the blinking when charging is completly drained dead, causing it to show an error by blinking the light. I have one of these PDA's and have never had that problem, I also have a larger battery as well, and it works great. I suggest recycling the other battery, and possibly purchasing another larger one for back up, Good luck!
