No display on Axim X51

This question is not answered

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 ?

  • Yes
