    I'm searching for a source where I can get the multipin connector
    located at the bottom side of Dell Axim X30 PDA.

    TIA

    Looks like we need more info. What plugs into it? Can you post a closeup
    photo of it on the web?
     
  3. I did, but I'm not sure that it is really helpful:

    As can be seen there are some bent pins on the right side - obviously
    the
    former owner of the X30 wasn't very careful when inserting it into the
    cradle.

    In fact, it's a SM-type connector with 26 pins.

    FWIW, here's the corresponding jack:

    The sync connector on the X30 is notorious for pins getting bent (even
    when you're being careful!) and for being ridiculously difficult to
    replace (unsoldering).

    Best way: Send it to pocketpctechs (or similar) and have them replace it
    for about US$60.

  5. Hi Jim

    Thank you very much for your answer though it's not really encouraging
    ....
    It's a long way to Tipp.../Fountain Valley! Probably a used X30 in good
    condition is cheaper than repair + shipping + customs :-(!
    Best regards
