Question about Casio Cassiopeia E-125 Pocket PC

2 Answers

Cassiopeia E-125 My Cassiopeia E-125 doesn't turn on. The amber light just blinks once as I place it in the cradle or as I connect the power transformer directly to the PDA. I suspect the battery might be bad. Has anyone had the same problem? I checked the charging voltage at the battery compartment pins on the PDA itself and it reads 3.86 volts between + and T and 3.86 volts between - and T and .1 volts between + and -. Any suggestions will be welcome.

Re: 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.

Lost data?

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 ;)

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

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.

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?

My E-125 isn't working properly...

If your craddle has DC power input that charges the PDA while in craddle, try setting the power configuration so that when the PDA is on external power, there is no blank screen timeout, and no automatic shutdown (it's in the Settings menu). This way, it won't power down while in craddle, and you won't get this problem you're having.

E-125 and Cradle/Internet access......

I don't know about the craddle - but I guess it should work too. I use a USB cable - and it works okay. You need to run MS ActiveSync (install v. 3.5 - it's better), and when you see a green circle in your taskbar, you can try and access Internet (your desktop should, of course, be connected to Internet).

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.

Cassiopeia E-125 & Nokia 7650

You will need 2 things. Software to load on your E-125. The included Cd with your Nokia should have it. You will need a special cable to connect Nokia to E-125. I don't know where you will find it easily. There is a firm in Finland which makes all kinds of cables to connect different models of Cassiopeias to different models of mobile phones - essentially Siemens, Nokia & Ericsson. They run about US$ 50/= Last time I saw their listing it was 4 pages long. You might have to do some searching on the net or contact Casio for information. Hope this helps.
