Casio E-100: Dead or alive?

I am new at this but I could use some help in diagnosing if my old casio has given up the ghost. It was on the cradle and I tried to make an entry when it appeared to be "locked up". I tried to reset it and it gave a low battery prompt. Usually I could go past this screen to my desktop. Now it goes to the Welcome to Windows CE screen where you initially set-up the device. It will not proceed past this screen. I assume that I have lost all information that was entered and now cannot even use the device. ? Can you help? Thanks. Jaguar

Re: casio E-100: Dead or alive?

If you had synched the device you have all your data on the desktop pc so I wouldn't worry too much except for some software which may require you to enter the reg info again. You could try the following. Remove both the batteries. Install the main battery. Install the backup battery preferably a NEW one. Let the device charge to the full - until the green charging light goes out. Switch on the device. It should now behave properly. It would help if you generally avoid using the device when you get low battery warning. Especially the backup battery.

That is your battery telling you it has had enough. Usually they last about 2 years. You can buy a replacement battery from about $15 and up. Usually these replacements have more capacity than the originals and so you get much longer usable run time.

You can send it in to get it replaced but it is a very simple job to do yourself. You just need a 5.5 torx screwdriver to take 4 screws out and open the case. Undo one connector remove the old battery and then put the cover back on and the screws back in. Carge overnight and you are up and running.

If you do a search on google or bing you will find dozens of places that sell the battery and/or will replace it for you.

If you look at this link it shows the battery and shows a video on how to replace the battery. Have a look at that and it should give you an idea if you feel comfortable to fix it yourself.

E -100 Help


Casio had a cable that had a serial port on one side and a connector to the E-1XX on the other side. Activesync works through this: I searched on Casio E-100 sync cable serial in Yahoo. It found two hits for a cable under $40. That should allow you to install programs over your serial port. I have persoanlly only used Etronics form the list of two and they did what they said they would do. "Casio Cassiopeia E-Series Serial Cable Mfg Part No: JK580CA UPC Code: 079767693206 Product listed below is: Sort this table by: New from U.S. Distributor Vendor Rating SORT BY: PRICE | VENDOR RATING VENDOR SOURCE IN STOCK SHIPPING COST PRICE VENDOR RATING TheNerds.net DIRECT LINK Direct from Vendor 04/02/04 Yes See Site $31.86 4.5 out of 5 stars Etronics DIRECT LINK Direct from Vendor 04/01/04 Yes $9.14 $38.35 5 out of 5 stars "

I can't perform Active-Sync with my Serial Cable to Casio E-100!?


You might try this.... Assuming that you deleted a file you shouldn't have, perform a hard reset on the Casio. You know the type, the type that will erase everything from memory and reset the device to like new. I think you hold down the power button while pushing the reset or something like that if I remember correctly. If you've already reinstalled activesync, they you would be all set.

Activesync Problem, Help Pls


Try the following. FIRST & FOREMOST BACKUP YOUR DEVICE TO A "CF CARD" USING THE BUILT IN "CardBackup" UTILITY. This is a much faster option than using ActiveSynch. It ca restore also much faster. Once your files have synched go to options & change the synch options to manual & file conversions to NONE. Remove or switch off the device. Next delete the partnership WITHOUT DELETING THE SYNCH FOLDER !!! Be very careful. Switch on or replace the device on the cradle. Active synch should recognise the device & offer to setup the partnership. Let it do so with "THIS COMPUTER ONLY" option. Once your device is scanned by activesynch one of the options it will offer is of combining the records. Select it & let it synch. I most cases this should solve the problem. Hope this helps.

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).

EM-500 sync problem


There have been issues with the cradle PCB on the EM-500. Casio has redesigned the same added an IC & a few additional componentes. I had similar problems & simply could not connect through the USB port. Worked flawlessly with the accessory serial cable (direct connection - no cradle ). This also was on an XP system. See if you can wangle out a free replacement/fix for yout cradle from Casio.

E-125 Turns off and won't turn on


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.
