My Casio now freezes at the Today screen when I first power it up. I have to do a warm reboot each time and then it's fine. If I then turn it off again and turn it back on using the power button, it freezes again till I warm reboot it. I have changed both batteries, but don't know what's wrong with it..Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Re: Help with E125!
Before turning off the device close all applications running in the background.
If this solves your problem it is time to do a full cleanup & adding some application like Gigabar or KillMe to help you quickly close the unused applications to free required memory.

The Casio PDAs will quit charging very quickly if the battery is very, very discharged. If you continue to remove and re-insert the charger into the PDA's power socket, the recharging cycle will last longer and longer until finally the stupid thing will fully recharge its battery.
I have two Casio PDA's and three batteries that were recovered after a bit of tedious struggle to force the charging cycle to complete.
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.
The memory problem can be fixed easily. It is not only you. It is a common problem with some pocket pc.
Instructions according to Casio Customer Service:
You will have to back up all of the data. Then remove the backup battery and main battery for ten minutes. Restore all of your files and you should be back in business. Also, to prevent this from happening again and to keep program memory high, perform a soft reset at least once daily.
This will almost certainly fix your problem.
As a rule the failure of the LCD on a Casio pertains to greying out of the top 1/3 portion of the screen. The touch screen - the part that senses your stylus inputs i.e. taps, double taps, tap & hold / drag continue to work.
Seems like the failure is not in the LCD but the fluorescent lamp at the top end of it. It could be the lamp itself or the inverter circuit.
Have an experienced technician check the lamp out. It is not a very diffucult item to replace. Nor is there any desoldering / soldering involved.
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.
