Re: CASIO E-125 no backlit

Usually the ribbon cable connection that powers the backlight is the problem.If you remove the four screws in the back and take off the back cover. (note that there are two tabs on both sides of the cover half way up)You can see the white ribbon cable on the left above the battery back housing. Gently wiggle it and see if the backlight goes on. The cable is attached with a small brown insert that holds it in. It is removable so you might be able to get an electronics shop to replace the cable connection or the cable itself.

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?

Cassiopeia Commited Suicide


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.

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.

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.

HELP: Activesync XP Reboot Problems!


Now don't laugh :-) on win 98 windows - I'm told - had a certain limited ability to fix itself. I don't know if xp does or not. Anyway on 98 if you ran into a problem you could let it reboot three or four times without doing anything but booting and shutting down - it at times would correct itself. This was normally on boot problems, but it might do some good - don't know of anything else to suggest. In your case I'd try this then try running active sync two or three times without doing anything else. Anyway that would keep you busy till a good tip comes along :-)

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.

Casio not reading CF card after using it in Desktop PC


Try another CF card/accessory in the slot to determine if the CF socket on the E-125 is not damaged. Also run scandisk on it while plugged into the card reader on yopur PC. There have been issues with 128 mb CF cards manufactured by SanDisk (who are OEM suppiers to several other brand names also ) randomly malfunctioning. Inspect the pins in the CF slot on the PDA to see if any of the pins has been bent/corroded. Hope this helps.

Anyone experience problems with an overclock E-125?


There are some overclocking programs available like through www.jimmysoftware.com or even hardware fixes. The one by jimmysoftware is for the iPAQ only. iPAQ Overclocking software I would strongely avoid doing the hardware fix. The overclocking applies only to the processor itself and does not take into account the I/O from the the processor to the various other hadrware components. Some games, video, and apps may perform better but anything hardware related like PC card or CF cards that have a function like modem, networking etc. . . can run into timing related issues and not function. At least the software version can be easily removed. Good luck
