Try a soft reset first. If that does not work, back everything up, and do a hard reset. Try it out and make sure you can shut off the Axim. You can restore your data after that, and if your power button stops working after your restore, you have an issue with your data. If not, then your problem is solved.
AXIM PDA will not turn off. Nothing on the keyboard works. I read one of the problems already reported and read about the "soft reset" which I tried and I was able to get the PDA to shut off. But, the answer given to the person that said they had the same problem as myself was to try a soft reset and if that did not work to back-up their data - was he still able to use the key board or other programs (?) becaue my whole unit went dead. I would not have been able to safe my data or do anything else.
What actually causes this problem. I did not have any indication of low battery. The icon in the top of the screen indicated "two arrows and an X" I put the PDA in its cradle thinking that might solve the problem - it did not.
I am glad the "soft reset" worked. Thank you. would appreciate additional info if you have it. Again thanks.
I have an Axim 51v that was accident washed in a swimming pool. It did finally come back to life but the on and off button doesn't work. Do you think I need a new battery as it seems to only run when it is in the charger?
I really love my Axim and unfortunately I had to rescue my daughter from the pool so I didn't have time to take out the Axim.
Any help would be appreciated.
