Dell Axim x51 not responding to stylus


Active member
Anyone know how this issue might be rectified? It turns on but won't respond to screen taps. Have tried cleaning the screen and stylus and have tried a soft reset (and yes i have checked whether it is locked).

This happened to anyone before?



Do the hard buttons work; if yes I suspect the digitiser has gone, proaly  est just to get another unit. If no the battery lock switch sometimes goes, soldering can sort this out, but cannot remember which pins. I do have it somewhere, will try to rememer to look it up.
