Question about Casio Cassiopeia EM-500 Pocket PC

Open Question

I have a Casio Cassiopeia EM-500 Pocket PC. The screen has gone so dark that it's barely readable with a magnifying glass even with the brightness and contrast settings at their lightest. Sometimes the screen will get bright again (maybe every couple of days) for a while, but the colors are off compared to before. Everything else on the unit is working. The main and backup batteries are both fully charged. Please help!!! Thank you so much!!! Vivian

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.

There have been issues with Em-500's USB adapter in the cradle. If your device is still within warranty period I suggest you contact Casio to upgrade the pcb in the cradle to solve your problems. I have successfully connected EM-500 with upgraded cradle to XP & ActiveSynch 3.1.

Have you checked the screen control settings? I had the same problem on a E-125, and it turned out that I had a screen backlight auto shutdown time that was very short - this could be the easy solution - simply adjust the auto dimming timer in the settings control. Controls setttings is a pull down menu under the "Start" button at top left corner of screen. If it's not that - then back to Casio? Good luck.

1) Back up your device since we will be removing both batteries from your PocketPC. 2)Remove all 5 screws (4 in the back and one underneath the rubbery grip sticker on the side). NOTE: Be very careful with the sticker on the side. I just pried it up with my finger nail to get it started, but the adhesive part split off from the rubbery grip. I then had to pry up the adhesive part from the side of my EM-500. I got them back together in the end, so no harm done - just something to look out for.

Casio em-500 deleting mail programs!!!


I believe they are in unit's ROM, which is non-reprogrammable. Hence, you won't be able to delete anything from there. On the positive side, they don't occupy your main memory, so there's really no harm in letting them dwell in your PDA. :)

E-125 dark screen


Bingo! You hit the problem on the head. If you can still see an image, albeit extremely faint, and the Casio is still working, i.e. playing an mp3 file or whatever, then you definitely have a problem with the backlight. More times than not, this is either a daughterboard problem or a connection problem (rarely have I seen an actual bulb failure though it can happen). One of the more common causes is the tiny ribbon cable connector on the daughterboard. You might try to disassemble it, clean the contacts of the ribbon and reassemble the device. I've also heard of people squeezing in the side of the case to temporarily effect repairs...this is normally more ominous.

MMC/SD Cards


In most cases they are interchangeable except for the security feature which you don't need for storage on your EM-500. SD cards are faster in read write department as also they cost more due to security featurtes built in. In Casio cameras Casio recommends SD cards but I have been using MMC cards very successfully.

Upgrade Activesync and the PC's USB driver. Then you should be OK once you upgrade Activesync to V3.6 and then get the latest USB driver for your system. Good luck

Connecting to a Linux machine


Have you ever heard of wine? You can install wine for free and see if the program that allows you to interface the device to a PC will work. There also could be some linux programs that will allow you to connect your pocket PC to your PC.

EM500 replace touchscreen


They are in fact very easy to replace if you: 1. Are very careful not to damage the other parts 2. Can find a replacement Understand that the screen is actually two different components, first there is the digitizer which is the part that senses your touching the stylus part. It is a clear glass plate that sits in front of the color lcd unit (the other part). If only the glass is broken, then replacing the digitizer is a cinch. If I remember correctly, the digitizer on the EM-500 is the same as the digitizer as on an E-125. You'll have to check to be sure though. Anyway, it is not too hard, just needs steady, careful hands...and it helps to have a little experience taking these things apart...

Broken screen


Replacement of the digitizer, if the lcd is still intact. If that is damaged as well...sell it for parts, or get parts from another. The EM500 and E125 share the same lcd/digitizer.
