Question about Casio Cassiopeia E-125 Pocket PC

When charger is plugged, amber light blinks once and then nothing? E125 not working at all!

Hi all, I recently bought a Cassiopeia E-125 off Ebay. I had it delivered from the USA to Australia. Upon receiving the E125, I plugged it in to the mains to charge it. The amber light (indicating charging) blinked once and stopped. I have tried charging it for atleast 6 hours both on the charger provided with the E125 and a USB charger for the E125 which I bought separately. I spoke to a Casio Rep who did not seem particularly interested in helping me. However, he did say that the transformer was broken. Now, I do not know what a transformer is. I am willing to buy a new battery if it will start the damn thing. All help will be appreciated!! P.S. For Ebay Enthusiasts: The person I bought from Ebay is a powerseller, with a 99.7% positive feedback.

Re: When charger is plugged, amber light blinks once and...

The Casio PDAs will quit charging very quickly if the battery is very, very discharged. If you continue to remove and re-insert the charger into the PDA's power socket, the recharging cycle will last longer and longer until finally the stupid thing will fully recharge its battery.

I have two Casio PDA's and three batteries that were recovered after a bit of tedious struggle to force the charging cycle to complete.

I was recently given a pocket PC. It did the same thing and i figured out that i did not have it seated properly on the base.

Re: When charger is plugged, amber light blinks once and...

The transformer is the bigger end of your power cable. If it's really broken there's not a bad chance for you to get a generic one that will fit. It only has to match the electrical specs and the connection shape. A good lab will help you. Do you have the same voltage in australia as in the US? could that be the problem? More probable is that the battery won't hold charge anymore. these things don't have a very impressive life span, and that's the first thing to watch out for when buying stuff with internal batteries on ebay. You could get a replacement batteries, but doing so through casio will hurt. Try finding a lab that specializes in replacement batteries for PDAs IPODs and the likes, they can be hard to find, but it's probably your cheapest way out of this. Good luck

I fixed this problem by a hard reset.

leave the backup battery in the PDA and bring it back to life with this how to ;)

if that doesn't help you may need to give the battery a little kick-charge for the PDA to recognize it again. the PDA "thinks" there's not battery if the battery voltage is below 2Volt.
to "kick-charge" the battery just get a AC adaptor with at least 5V and 1A (a.k.a. 1000mA) with 2 wires and connect them to the battery pins (with "+" and "-" correct!)

if you have your PDA lying in front of you with the display down and the battery cover opened, the pins of the battery are as following:

left: plus
middle: charging/temperature (not important for hand-charging)
right: minus

connect the wires of the AC adaptor correctly and let it "kick-charge" for about 5minutes (but NEVER let it charge any longer if the battery is getting hot!!!!)

after that, the PDA should recognize the battery again because the voltage is more than 3Volt again.

but don't (!) try to power it up after kick-charging!
the batterys voltage is higher than 3Volt again, but it takes just a few seconds to empty it again if u try that.
it's only for the PDA to "see" the battery again ;)

Cassiopeia E-125

I had the same problem with an E125 which I brought off eBay that hadn't been used for several months.
I took out the backup battery and put the main battery in it's holder with a bare wire held onto the negative & positive terminals.
When I turned on the charger, I held the other end of the bare wires onto a partly charged Nokia Battery (Also 3.7V internal). The current from this battery was enough to let the Casio start charging.
After two minutes I disconnected the Nokia battery and gently tugged the bared wires free. The Casio kept on charging happily.
After six hours I disconnected the AC charger, installed a new backup battery CR2032, and everything was go.

Casio e-125 problem

Sounds like you might have a bad cable or something. Did you try plugging ppc into its power pack while using the cable?

Need help on connecting E-125

I doubt it... I mean it is unlikely there is any incompatibility there. Go to your device manager and make sure that your USB ports are installed and configured properly for your USB cradel.

Universal Remote software?

You cannot find remote software for E-125 simply because the range of the IR emitters on E125 is simply too short. If you are willing to di some surgery on the device - switch it for a higher range one from say E-100 - the earlier versions software should work on E-125 also.

Casio E-125

Blinking amber light means the battery is not fully recharged. Once it is charged, press the power button. If the the device still does not turn on take out the main battery and the backup battery. Put the main battery in first, then the backup battery and put the battery switch in the lock position. Press the power button and you should see initializing memory..., then starting..., then it will ask you to set up the device.

CASIO E-125 has no backlight

Pretty common problem, and is normally one of three possibilities: 1. Ribbon cable that connects the backlight daughterboard to the motherboard connector has gone bad, or contacts oxidized. 2. Daughterboard itself has gone bad... 3. Power problem or cpu problem not activating upon powerup. Not as likely. 4.The fluorescent tube itself may has blown. The cure: carefully disassemble your 125, clean the ribbon contacts on both ends of the tiny ribbon cable, be careful, it is very fragile. If that doesn't work, find someone who has a E125 and swap out ribbon cables and see that works, that will at least tell you if the cable is bad or not. If that doesn't work, swap out daughterboards. If that doesn't work, sell it for parts on EBay and buy a new one, because anything else will probably be too expensive.

E125 MP3 Player

You need to have your music files in a "My Documents" folder on your CFC. If they are anywhere else, the media player will not see them.
