Axim X50v PocketPC Screen Interference

Posted on 2010-01-03
Last Modified: 2013-12-05
The screen on my Axim X50v PocketPC recently started displaying this interference. Even on reset, it immediately displays the lines on the Dell bootup screen. Soft nor Hard Reset helped. Some screens are worse than others.

See it in action at Youtube:

The device does work otherwise.

Can anyone suggest a fix (other than sending the device in for repair)?

    Looks like failing connections from motherboard to screen. So you may have to send it for repair unfortunately.

    I took it apart (8 screws), reseated two connectors to the screen but no change.

    If it is in warranty send it for replacement, that's all I can say. Personally I would not mess with it.
