Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
Posted by Anonymous on
Holding down the record button on these units turns the backlight on and off, since this is hardware controlled you should try this first. If you've performed a hard reset and held down record then this is most likely a physical fault, check with Dell to find out your warranty status and find out about the availability of replacement parts.

I am by no means an expert but I have had the same problem that you are having and I found that after I took my X5 apart and cleaned around the underside edge of the plastic housing frame that was at the edge of the screen the problem went away. I also cleaned the front of the screen very well and put a new back-up battery in. I have not had the problem since.

Look at this http://www.fixya.com/support/t132057-getting_past_align_screen
you basically need to get the wire to stop touching the home key, which can be accomplished (as described in the link) with either the quick fix method, wedging something in the bottom screen, or the better-long term method of opening the axim up and taping the part that has shorted.

SD cards must be SD not SDHC, there is not an SDHC driver for the X5. You can find regular SD cards up to 4G.
CF is no problem, all flash based CF cards will work. Microdrives can be problematic.

SOURCE: Axim x5 sd not reading
I have a 2 gig Lexar micro sd card that works fine in my Axim x5 with a couple of SD adapters I have. However, my Dane-elec 4 gig micro sd HC won't...Not sure what the deal is but I'm told it's the HC part that causes the trouble.
Thank goodnes it has two memory card slots!
