I had a Casiopeia E-125 for two years. We went on vacation to New Hampshire and I took it with me. I tried to turn it on, but it wouldn't, so I figured it was just a dead battery. Well, I came back and put it in the cradle. I waited, and took it out again. I went to turn it on and it stayed on for about two seconds and the backlight started flickering and it just died. Now you can only access it while holding a flashlight to the screen. I asked Casio at their web site, and they told me that it was a problem with the motherboard and they would not replace it.

Re: E-125 Owners BEWARE!
Unless a Casio technician has looked at it don't take Casio's word for it.
There is an inverter PCB which converts the DC to high frequency AC for the fluorescent back light. lamp. This is available & can be repaired / replaced.
There is also an issue with the E-125 backlighting which simply requires resoldering of a connector on the main pcb.
Then there is the fluorescent lamp itself which can go bad & may be replaced.
So DO take your device to a well equipped competent technician to look for the precise problem.

The very same thing happened to my Blackberry Curve. The system has been completely wiped-out. The service is still there but you need to download the software to your phone again. You can fix it if you have access to the internet without the CD. Go to www.blackberry.com. then click on Software, then click on Device Software and follow the instructions from there( your phone must be connected to the computer while doing this with the USB cord) This will reload the software back on to your blackberry. Also, beware, you will lose all of your contacts that you had previously stored in your phone. I am so sorry that you are experiencing this on your vacation. Hope this helps.

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.
There is reset and hard reset on many units, did you do both. You might try pulling the battery out for an hour or two and try it.
Other than that open the back and look for dead bugs :-) actually not much you can do inside unless you have a parts source and Casio units are kind of like without parts - I emailed for some two weeks ago and never did hear from them - which is normal - it has happened numerous times before on other subjects including parts.
are you checking your adapter. i had the same problem with my casseopeia e115. i searched and searched for the battery which even casio doesn't offer anymore. i bought a battery pack which works great w 4 AA batteries but it's bulky and you lose data when you turn off the batteries. i finally went on to discover that my charger/adapter that plugs into the e115 and the serial cradle was scorched by a lightening strike and it was not charging and eventually the batteries DIED!!! I took the adapter to an electronics repair store and for $15.00 they rewired the adapter and it works!!!! it charged the batteries and worked fine.(altho i have to visit them again because i think one of the new wires is bent and i have to position it perfectly to keep charging.) BTW: any one looking for a new casio battery jk210lt...i have a couple to sell! ;-)
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
