Dell Axim X50v won't turn on after 6 months of no use
I haven't used my X50v for about 6 months and it won't turn on. I've been charging it for about 30 minutes now - the charge light is orange, but when I try to turn it on, nothing happens. I've tried a soft reset and that doesn't do anything either

Don't forget to backup before performing a hard reset. Also, don't forget to check the lock button on the left side. Shamefully, that was my problem! I didn't even know the lock button was there, let alone that my purse demon locked it.

Start with pulling the battery and power, then hold the power button in for about 30-40 seconds. Then plug the power back in (still no battery). Try to power up the computer. If it boots, shut it down and put the battery in and try again. If it boots the issue was cleared. If it boots with the power cord but not with the battery added, you have a battery issue.
1. Connect the Reader to the computer 2. Hit the Reset at the bottom for 3 seconds 3. Make sure a redlight comes on at the top of the unit 4. Leave the reader charging for about 15 minutes or half an hour 5. Disconnect the reader and check if its functional now 6. If not try the reset again
"The charge indicator light (LED), located on the charg- ing stand, will light up red and glow when the char- ger is properly connected to power supply. This light indicates the charger is operating properly. It will remain on until battery pack is removed from charging stand or charger is disconnected from power supply.
After normal usage, 3 hours or less of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.
If both red and orange LED indicators glow, the battery pack is deeply or completely discharged, and 6 hours or longer of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.
Note: If charger does not charge battery pack or orange LED continues to glow after more than 30 minutes of charging, return battery pack and charging assembly to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for electrical check."
So to summarize: red = charging. orange (yellow) = fully discharged battery. orange after 30 minutes - bad battery or bad charger.
I'm having the same problem where it won't take a charged. If you left it with a dead battery for say 6 months, it probably ruined the battery. You should have a charger for house current and car voltage charger. I guess your dead in the battery like me. I'm taking it to Battery Plus to check it out. It only had a 1 year limited warranty. Good Luck.
