I've recently retrieved by Dell Axim X51 PDA from my car when it has sat in the cold for several months. When I attach it to the docking station and power it I do get the orange light which then turns green but I get no display. I've tried a hard reset but that doesn't help.
Unfortunately it's now out of warranty and I can't find the service tag number.
Any ideas what might be the problem?
Service tag is under the battery.
Thanks - found the service tag but when I typed it into the Dell website it said it was invalid - perhaps because the warrenty has expired.
Anyway, in the process of removing and re-inserting the battery it has now started working properly.
I wish that I could say the same !
However, when I set the date to today's date, it tells me that it's a Wednesday! Any ideas?
Make sure the year is correct, thats the only thing I can think of that would cause it to display the wrong day of the week.
Yes - the year is correct - 2009.
I don't know then, if you have the correct time and date it should show the correct weekday.
Is the time zone set correctly ?
