Question about Casio Cassiopeia E-125 Pocket PC

3 Answers

E-125 Turns off and won't turn on

I have an E-125 w/ a 340 MB Microdrive, about 13 months old. The main and backup battery show 100%, but for some reason, when running off either a powered cradle or battery, it turns off by itself. Won't turn back on. I reseated both the backup and main battery, and after a while, sometimes a few minutes, sometimes more, it will finally come back on after jiggling the batteries or the battery door lock switch. Seems to occur with or without the CF card in. If it's a symptom of a bad battery, I'll be happy to replace it, but I was wondering if it could be anything else.

I have a Casiopeia E-125, and I had the same problem. You just have to make sure that the battery door is locked.

If the device can be switched on after jiggling the battery cover lock switch you possibly have a hardware problem. It seems like the back cover was removed for some reason & the device reassemblked with the battery cover lock knob in main battery position. Under the the battery cover lock knob there is a microswitch on the main board which will keep the device turned off with the switch in "main " position. You might have to take the back cover off & while manipulating the microswitch LIGHTLY spray a switch cleaning agent like WD-40 or a old time TV tuner/ volume control cleaning/lubricating spray. DON'T FLOOD THE SWITCH. Also when reassembling the back cover make absolutely sure that the battery knob is in BACKUP position. Hope this helps.

This is what I suggest: Get yourself a new backup battery. First backup your Casio. Then install the main battery. Plug the Casio in and recharge overnight. Once recharged, install the new backup battery. Make sure you do not touch the battery with your hands. Use a tissue. This should solve your problem if the Casio is not physically damaged.

The C drive on my PC showed a red bar, saying that it has very little space. What can I do?


Make a backup as soon as possible. And if you don't have a virus, assume you drive is dying. Run the check disk program AFTER the backup, to see ho bad it is and start saving for a new HD.

I have replace my main battery and it showing 100% charge but I am facing bit trouble.My( PDA HP IPAQ 6365) battery not giving standby. what is backup battery? It is showing 0% charge? please help


The backup battery is not user replaceable. If you have some electronics experience you could open the device and replace it yourself but it involves cutting out the old battery and soldering in a replacement. An easier solution is to take it to a phone repair shop and get a quote to replace the battery, probably around $ 60. They may even give you a 3 month warrantee.

My ups is not giving backup?


The main reason for not giving backup is improper charging or insufficient charging. Or if the UPS is about 18-20 months old, the battery is unable to give backup. or these are not the cases, the wires inside the ups, above the battery ,connected to the +ve and -ve ports on the above or side of battery are not properly connected or are loosen. try to tighten them with yourself with a plier or goto a shop for a better result. Hope this will help. Thanks for using Fixya.

Battery backup time is 1 min when capacity is 100%(4 months older


The Batteries are the most likely course of your UPS backup problem. The batteries cell may have been weaken with Age or loose contacts. Check to confirm the battery contacts are not loose, replace the batteries with good one.You can also check the strenght of the batteries by using a Multimeter and load to read the voltage of the batteries outside the UPS. If the battery voltage drops below 10V Dc on load the the batteries should be replace. Otherwise check the battery contacts.

Batteries ate not charging.


First suspect the battery. As I guide I have split the task into the following steps.

1. Get a voltmeter and test the battery. It should report 12.4 or 12.6 volts. Branded batteries frequently incorporate a battery status indicator in the form of a watch glass at the top. The color change indicates the battery condition.

2. Now connect the battery with the UPS leads securely and plug into AC mains (with electricty). Test the battery terminals for voltage. If voltage is between 13 to 14.5 volts then the charger is OK. If not then check if the fuse with the DC charger is blown. With the battery disconnected check voltage between leads. It should be zero (if it showed zero volts with battery connected). If not then the charger is faulty. Also if it shows 13 - 14.5 volts with battery connected and disconnected then it is OK.

3. Re-check for any blown internal fuses.

Main Battery Power


It cannot switched the batteries. The backup one is a small internal battery just to keep the CMOS with data. That's it.

If you main battery is not charging or when unplugged won't power on, the is likely the main battery is defective, or the charging circuitry of it is failing.

Battery backup related


Most of your data (phone directory, calendar etc) is stored your pda's ram. If your LiON battery runs flat , the pda wont start up, your backup battery kicks in to preserve the data. If your NiMH battery runs flat, you will loose all data in the phone or the equivalent of a hard reset.

Loss of memory


The back up battery always shows 100%, as far as my experience shows. The backup battery is only utilized to retain memory while the main battery is dead. The backup battery charges first, so if the ppc has enough juice to be turned on, the backup battery should be at 100%, unless it is plugged in and you are just now turning it back on. Even so, it will probably still show 100%.

Basically, you left it on too long and all the batteries died. Sorry, but your data is gone :-(
