Axim directional pad

My directional pad seems a bit soft when I push up or to the right. If I push down or to the left I can feel a click. Is anyone else having this problem? I tried playing a game and it was difficult to use the pad...

"My 3 largest gripes with the Axim are as follows: 1. Lame feeling directional pad (should be 5-way..i.e. the Palm Tungsten) 2. Even cheaper-feeling rocker/jog-dial thingy. 3. Disappointing video playback, specifically in Pocket TV." Points one and two well, taken, but point #3...... You'd be hard pressed to find any PPC that performs any better. This is a limitation of PocketTV, not the Axim.

Fully agree. My 3 largest gripes with the Axim are as follows: 1. Lame feeling directional pad (should be 5-way..i.e. the Palm Tungsten) 2. Even cheaper-feeling rocker/jog-dial thingy. 3. Disappointing video playback, specifically in Pocket TV.

Madden NFL 07 instruction booklet

There are two optaions for you to find one, one of the simpler ones would be to find a video game store and ask if they have the booklet in stock and they should be able to give you one, or you can try e-bay, im sure there is something on there. I hope I have helped you in anyway.

I have a MB C230 Sport 2007. My check engine light came on and now the car is stuck in 2nd gear. Anyone please help.

Place your car in park, wait at least 5 minutes then place your foot on the break, put your car in D. Now, take your gear shift and push it to the left for D- direction, you should see the number 1 show on your display console, then push the gear shift to the right, D+ direction, you will see the numbers go from 2 to 6 and then D. Turn the vehicle off and wait about 10/15 minutes and the light will hopefully go out, you will leave Limp Home Mode, and your car will drive properly and you will feel the gears shifting gently without the feel of the transmission slipping or the up or down-shift sounding out of whack. Good Luck.

Setting up rumble pad

Ok well here is what i did for using the direction pad to play flatout, a pc racing game, using the Wireless rumblepad 2 controller. First open up profiler, click on d-pad, select assignment, then click new POV assignment. Put a check on FPS style movement. Then click edit, then click new keystroke. Hit record and then on the keyboard hit the up, down, left and right keys. Then hit stop and click ok. click cancel on the window right behind it. So now you are viewing the POV assignment window that we opened before. Here what you do is, say for instance hit the "N" button and then to the right of it you see "pov north", hit the scroll down menu and hit "keystroke Up" for N. Like wise you click the "E" button and for POV east you assign "Keystroke right". And so like wise "keystroke down" for "S" and "keystroke left" for "W". Once you have all that done. You hit ok and just open up whatever game you want to play and the Direction pad should be able to allow you to steer or go in the up, down, left or right direction. Hope these instructions help solve your problem.

Did it work

danld,
not sure what happened to my email to you. I will send it again. The solution to my problem was to use this web site http://www.pdasmart.com/aximpartscenterx3.htm. I bought the replacement assemble for the 3X axim. It might seem a bit pricey but it solved my problem. I have been using my axim ever since with no problems. They have a fast turnaround time too. I believe I got it back with a week or so. They also have good prices on replacement batteries. I have purchased two of them and they are working very well. Hope this helps you and anyone else that had screen problems. You can't get this model of axim anymore and I think it was worth the repairs I put into mine.

Backlight not working

Did you try to set the Backlight on in the control panel? (settings>system>brightness) The brightness is often automatically set to 0. If you did this already and it still doesn't work, probably try an email.

Infrared Beaming Problem

My Axim is behaving the same way. I find that if I try to transfer something from my Palm IIIc to my Axim via infrared, it rarely sends the data immediately, and it often times out. I have found that I can often get it to work if I request the transfer on the Palm and then "stimulate" the Axim via tapping a menu selection or by momentarily blocking the view between the devices.

Problems with SD Slot on Axim

I once used Mazingo on another pocket pc. I had it set to use the CF card in it. It did the same thing it's doing on yours now. It caused word to take a long time to open and it loaded the pages in it really slow. I stopped using it for that reason. I think it may just me the Mazingo program.
