Axim X5 Screen Issue

I have a Dell Axim X5. I don't remember when I bought it, but it was when Dell first came out with them. My issue is that when I touch the screen with the stylus, many times nothing happens. Other times it does ok, but then after about 30 secs of using it, the screen acts up again. I have tried a soft reset and even a hard reset. After both the screen is fine for a few minutes, but then starts acting up again. I have realigned the screen. It helped for a bit, but not long. I have not dropped it and I used to use a screen protector. I took it off when it was acting up. I thought it might be the protector, but it continued to act up.

Mine had a similar problem years ago. It got worse as time went on. I found the digitizer repair cleared the problem. It involves opening the PDA and placing a piece of celephane tape over the ribbon cable to the screen. A small hole is burned in the cable. Look that up and give it a try. what have you got to lose.

I have seen this before. It may or may not be the same problem but sometimes a crack can form in the digitizer (touch screen part of the display). The only way to fix it is to replace it. You can find them on-line or on ebay.

CRACKED SCREEN


It sounds like you only broke the outer layer, digitizer, which takes the stylus inputs. If the screen still shows properly, then your LCD screen is not broken.

I don't know about replacing the LCD screen, but to replace the digitizer, ebay the search words (axim, x5, digitizer) and find a $15 or so replacement.

Then follow these steps: http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GHT&Category_Code=_axim_takeapart

Any questions let me know. grandgregojunk [at] yahoo . com

Also, if your align screen should ever have difficulty responding in the future with the screen not cracked, check here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t540878-dell_axim

Best wishes.

Good Eevening :


You could get original disk from ebay at times but all you need is the Activesync that can be downloaded from Microsoft. Get Active sync 4.2. The newer ones do NOT work with the X5.

Good luck with the wireless card. The Axim does not play well with many of them. (sometimes works but mostly not) Try drivers from d Link and be sure to remove the old drivers first.

Dell Axim X5 Screen Back Light Trouble


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.

Align screen loop?


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.

best,
