Question about Dell Axim X50v Pocket PC

1 Answer

X50v hardware problem I think

Dear Axim users, My problem is with my 2 years old Dell Axim x50v pocket pc. Somehow 2 months ago it started not woking. It only works when it is plugged into power either credle or car kit. I haven't used it for a long time, I think it stayed in the car ver cold and hot. There might be something related with this. When it is on the power power light is blinking from green to orange. I left it on the power for a long time. Its buttery %100 and backup buttary is normal. But If I take the power away screen goes off to black and pda doesn't come again until I plug it to power. Then it comes with set up screen. This is the general description of my x50v problem. I am suspicious it is a hardware problem since both batteries look ok but they do not take effect when I remove it from power. I have been looking on the internet for this issue however I could not find any similar case and solution. My hope this this web-site. Even if you had similar problem and could not solve it, you can just share with me. Regards Note:I tried soft+hard reset stuff and didn't work. I also replaced my backup battery inside the device. None of them solved the problem. It works only when it is on the power and power light is blinking (green-orange-green) I know it is a notification but what ? Metin Bugru

    Axim X50v main battery critically low, but backup battery is listed as normal. When charging by cradle or cable, main battery appears to be charging (indicated by moving battery power indicator); power light steady amber. So far so good . . . until anywhere from 5-30 secconds later the power light starts flashing green and amber non-stop. The battery power indicator goes immediately to 100%. Flashing stops when unit removed from AC. Battery indicator starts dropping and within a couple minutes power level is critically low. Tried hard/soft reset, new batteries etc to no avail. At this point I just want to know what is the nature of the problem.

Take out battery, put cover back on. Plug to cradle and turn on. Then do soft reset while on the cradle working. After, turn off , remove from cradle and install battery. Turn on with battery only.

I have a Dell Axim x50v running with original ppc2003. Then I upgraded it to Windows mobile 2005, and used for couple of months then it crashed! Now the issue is both soft & hard reset stop loading at 80%,...

Same problem. Soft and hard reset can't even stard any advice screen. When the problem started, it was frozen at the dell round simbol, that i just could turn it off by removing battery. Now, its even worse, the screen is off, even after pressing the two and tree buttons at the same time, it doesn't hard reset. What else should i do?
